Hi Jules it must be E.S.P. I was thinking of you only yesterday morning, thinking that we haven't heard from you in about a month, I'm so glad you're back with us even though you have a busy schedule with uni :D

Hi Jules,
exams are stressbombs. Just be sure you are prepared, go in, do your best and I'm sure you'll be fine. My main tip is READ the question THOROUGHLY and try to remember some research that you should be able to quote to back up your argument (I always tried to remember 3 or 4 per essay that would more than likely be useful, that way if I could only use 2, I still had something). Even if you get a surprise question, don't just blurt out what you know about other stuff, make sure you answer the question they ask, even if you hadn't studied as hard for it.

I'm sure once the stress of exams are over you will get back on track with the weight loss.
Cheers,
Tegan
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Good luck with your exams Hushpuppy. I bet you do wonderfully! My sister always stressed over her exams and she always did really well in the results. But it's only human nature to stress over what we don't know! My thoughts are with you, and make sure you let us know how you did!

:P Thanks for the vote of confidence guys (((((((hugs))))))to u all . Well this week has been great . I have been following the Symply To Good To Be True Books and went and got the menu planner- cd,rom and ............. woooohooo 1.5kgs in a week . :lol: I think i can finally say i am back on track
For any one who does'nt know the program it was designed by a lady called Annette Syms( i think ). She has 4 books out and a cd rom . The books have Low Cal receipes in it that are your normal kinda food just ingredients changed to make them low fat ( and some are so yum ) the cd rom has daily and weekly menu plans with 2 alternatives for breakky lunch and dinner as well as snacks . I find this better cause i have it all planned out for the day

Hope u are all well and happy.Keep up the great work guys
Luv and Laughter
Jules

Well done Jules that is a fantastic effort.

Thanks for supplying the menu info. I am on light n easy but that menu looks surprisingly like what I am having minus the marg. I have decided when I go off this I will also plan all my meals by doing a menu as I find the structure keeps me on track. May have to look into these books at that time if I am having trouble.

Wow that looks great Jules. Now that is what I call something you can stick to. All sounds like normal every day stuff that you would cook anyway. I'd love a copy of the carbonara recipe if you have it. I love carbonara but it is so fatty that I feel guilty if I ever eat it!

O excellent, thanks Jules. I had a look at the site for the books etc. I am seriously tempted to purchase them but I know that my partner would chuck a paddy if I did! He always says you know how to lose weight you just need to think about what you are eating. And he is very right but it is soooooooooo damn hard!!!
