I AM IN CONTROL OF THE FOOD (MOSTLY) rather than it controlling me! ACTUALLY THIS WASN'T TOTALLY TRUE OVER THE CHRISTMAS PERIOD. I AM STILL REALLY ENJOYING THE 100 DAYS TEAM AND CHALLENGES, FIND IT HARD TO POST ONLINE EVERYDAY BUT ANSWER IN MY JOURNAL, I BELIEVE I CAN FIT IT IN. I DO BELIEVE in the Slimming World healthy eating plan but do realise my addiction to food means I have to be constantly vigilant of the 'extras'/syns TRYING NOT TO EAT BETWEEN MEALS HOWEVER CHALLENGING THAT CAN BE! I HAVE TAKEN TARGET again and am just below my SW target and intend to maintain it - the really hard bit. Slimming World is all about Synergy (put every element together). 1 Fill up on free and superfree foods 2 Healthy Extras - A section and B section 3 Syns - 10 per day or 70 per week We need to put all three elements together for Synergy! Also try to drink at least 7 glasses of water/fluid every day WRITE IT DOWN SO I KNOW I'M USING RATHER THAN ABUSING THE SYNS! I now also recognise how important staying to Image Therapy group is, supporting other people as well! I know the plan really well and know it works!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! REALLY ENJOYING THE 100 DAYS TEAM AND CHALLENGES, FIND IT HARD TO POST ONLINE EVERYDAY BUT ANSWER IN MY JOURNAL.

    I was looking through the teams you are one.. .they reflect so many of my beliefs in when/how this all works for me. Gratitude is right up there. Doing things consistently... the challenges. I'm back and it is amazing how the mind just chooses to forget the obvious. Hmm. Anyways, thanks for commenting on my blog. I'm very blessed in my life how things happen when I need them and people come into my life for reasons. Thanks. Justyna

    emoticon so much for the birthday wishes for tomorrow. I'm actually going through a pretty tough time at the moment (for various reasons) but I'm hoping to come out the other side smiling!
    Take care
