Reading a couple of Slimming world recipe books that I just picked up in a charity shop. Whilst stuffing my face with the biggest Vanilla slice known to man 😊😊

Good for you ! It'll do you good.
I never felt guilty at eating a foot long chocolate éclair because I'm slim by nature.

I feel guilty eating a slither of cheese because I am not slim by nature.

Fat or thin, an occasional indulgence does nobody any harm.

That’s the best thing I learned from slimming world Monica.

No one can lose weight if they feel guilty everytime they open their mouth and put food in it.

One of the joys of the 5:2 diet was, that I only needed to worry about food two days a week, I got all my worrying and cravings out of the way and ate sensibly for the other 5 days. If I had a birthday to ceelbrate. a party or a holiday, I went out and celebrated and if I put a pound or two on, so what? Back into my usual eating pattern, it soon disappeared.

Guilt wrecks your peace of mind. I have to lose weight but I know realistically I will not be able to refuse the occasional and lovely food/drink treat.

I hope you enjoyed that cake minxie! grin

I find that when I peruse recipe sites I get really hungry and then want to eat anything I can get my hands on. Even the cat isn't safe.....grin

🤣 Day6 😿

A vanilla slice? I adore those, and I want one right now!
Unless you live on them, please don’t feel guilty.

It counts as one of your daily sins

I like that idea ninathenana how many daily sins are we allowed? smile

So I’m doing weight watchers but only on a 5:2 basis
It’s not that I’m that bothered, it helps but it’s to support a family member who has a bigger (!) problem.
I do actually enjoy the fact that I can eat whatever I fancy twice a week, then track the other days.

Just the one was eaten, it was huge though

sodapop your allowance depends on how many pounds/stones you need to loose.

Oh, come on, guilt is the diet companies best and biggest weapon (remember the Xenical ads?), you can't let the side down otherwise we'd all end up happy!

I refuse to feel guilty about what I eat, my motto is "everything in moderation".

I thought about healthy eating, so bought 2 vegetarian cookbooks from the charity shop. I have had it for 3 months and the only thing I have made is chocolate refrigerator cake. 8oz dark chocolate, Packet of digestive biscuits ,eggs and nuts.
