I had lunch that thought <BR> "Surely one packet of crisps won't hurt" <BR> So I went to the kitchen and had that one packet of crisps. But is one ever enough? <BR> Never, so the second one followed straight after. <BR> What happens after two packets of crisps? Well, it's very salty. <BR> Do you go and drink a glass of water? No. It is fatty as well. <BR> What... Fri, 26 Apr 2013 05:23:36 EST My Diet Saboteur Who is it? <BR> Me. <BR> <BR> I decide in the evening to be good the next day. Try to plan my day. Get very excited about it. <BR> <BR> Than the next morning comes. The trouble starts with breakfast. Nothing is right. Either the food is not good for me or I don't like it. So whatever I do I feel already out of bounce. <BR> <BR> Than comes 10 am. What should you do at this time? Have a snack. Do I do that? No. I have my lunch. Literally. Than I skip lunch because I have already overeaten. A...

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 18:36:56 EST Was upset but didn't binge How did that happen. I was just reading about the three P's and realized that for today I broke the cycle: Get upset - go and binge. <BR> <BR> I had a very upsetting phone call this morning. After I put the phone down I was cross with the person on the other side for being unreasonable, upset about myself for not handling the conversation better and for making some mistakes in the past which didn't help in this situation. <BR> <BR> I started crying but I didn't think of going to the kitchen... Sat, 9 Mar 2013 07:09:09 EST Day 2 I was week this morning fall for the toast. What was my excuse. Husband worked all night so would be at home today. I don't feel ready yet to explain new food plan. Have to find the strength to have a fast day tomorrow. <em>24</em> Wed, 6 Mar 2013 08:44:20 EST My Journey with The Fast Diet 5:2 - Day 1 Today is the first day of my diet. Luckily I had just half a banana for breakfast when I discovered the book on the internet and downloaded it to my kindle. I read it straight away. <BR> <BR> So I thought, any day is as good as today. The reason this diet felt worth trying is my history of fasting. When I was younger I fasted at Ramadan. I always loved that time of year. It seemed the only time food didn't haunt me.
