Dear Diary....

Here we are... the last full week of this challenge and again everyone has done brilliantly on the losses! I was down another pound so its all good!!! This weeks mini challenge is a simple one... and one that we all know works... TRACK! From now until next week.. be honest... you're only fooling yourself if you tell fibs ... and write down everything that you eat.. as my leader says.. if it goes in your smacker... it goes on the tracker!


We're so unaware of how much we nibble and taste and 'try' and after a some vino.. well everything is ProPoint free no?! What chip shop?!?! The biscuit tin at work... ever slip your hand in there and forget ALL about it... For the next 7 days stick up your tracker on the fridge... download whatever app works for you... get a fancy little notebook and WRITE IT ALL DOWN! If you know you're going to have a good time then write down - 5 slices of cake... 2 (don't judge!) bottles of wine... then when it comes to the scale.. there can be no.. 'I have NO idea what went wrong?!?'



Writing it down means you learn your triggers, weaknesses and when you're most likely to slip... weekend fall-out anyone? groan... but if you're honest with yourself then you can see where you slip up other than the wagon jumps! and THAT'S when you can make the changes you need to... anyone been watching 'secret eaters' on channel 4.. people are genuinely unaware that every time they have a cup of tea a biccy seems to tag along! Its facinating to watch... lots of experiments to see how people subconsciously eat! like... food in clear bowls gets eaten more than ceramic bowls because we can see it sitting there.. screaming at us! ... I digress.... TRACK... that is all!



I'm away in the UK next week with work, so there won't be a full post unless I sneak out (this may happen!) but I will put up a final 'weigh in' for those on the board and we can see how we've done! Can you believe another mini-challenge is over!? This year is just flying by! Now ... TRACK! I mean it! Doll xxx

  2. Stayed the same - I think I may have over indulged on the fruit! Plan this week is to limit fruit to 3 pieces per day.

    Pressure on this week!

  4. Can I ask you all a question about tracking?

    I understand the concept 'if I bite it write it' and I do write EVERYTHING down, but my question is do I need to point it if it's literally only a bite that I'm taking? For example, I had two bites of chicken this evening while cooking dinner. I have tracked it but should I point it as 1 just in case???

    1. Yes point everything coz all the little nibbles could add up to 5 points at the end of the day and god know what at the end of the week. Better off it will stop u from picking too much too and save ur points for something better :-)

  8. Up .5 it was a bad week btn a car collision and time of month. Lots of chocolate was consumed, but was required so not stressing about it. Hope everyone did well & enjoyed the sunshine.
