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.

    Oh, Donna! Was your daughter & friends actually at Manchester Arena? I wrote my blog before I heard the news.

    I went onto the BBC website and read the updates, but chose not to watch the videos of sirens & screams.

    Morning, Donna! The cold is changing - more in my nose today, with a dry cough. More like a cold! Before it felt like a chest infection. I'm on the mend, but still taking it very easy today. The weather is grey and overcast here again, so a nice yoga session is on the cards.

    I hope you have an enjoyable Sunday with your family.

    Thank you for your supportive comment. I really do appreciate it. This whole thing is very upsetting and has spiked my anxiety no end. I feel really jumpy. I have checked all my FB privacy settings and they are pretty tight anyway.
    We've been having people knocking on the door and then, when we answer it, saying 'sorry, wrong address'. This is getting worrying at night. I got 3 between 10.30pm and midnight last night. Our bins were pushed over this morning. It was not the wind. Still, we are seeing the Housing Officer on Monday and will voice our concerns.
    I see another house move in our near future if this carries on.
