Nobody diets in winter.....do they? ponder (well, I don't! whistle).  Wet windy weather is not conducive to dieting, I don't think.

I've come to the conclusion that 'faddy' diets, i.e. diets that leave out food groups or get you to do weird combining things, e.g., are just too much like hard work and not sustainable in the long term or in any kind of normal life.  Let's face it, ANY diet will work, so long as you stick to it.  It's really just a case of eating less, or cutting down on highly fattening things (and we all know what they are).  And booze certainly slows down (or stops, depending on how much you drink) weight loss.

Eat less, move more, as the saying goes....and be sensible (must learn to take my own advice, ha ha).

I have returned to weight watchers which has always worked for me as I can eat what I want in controlled amounts. I have now lost 18lbs and am back in my size 10 clothes. Another 6lbs to go to get back to goal.

I have given up chocolate and alcohol for November and no longer crave chocolate! Long may that stay with me! I will stick to my points over Christmas as I never want to put that weight on again!

Good for you Aly welldone.  Fortunately, I've never been a chocoholic (just as well in view of the diabetes!), preferring savoury things (although I wouldn't say no to the occasional Thorntons choc!).
