Happy Monday

Just wanted to wish everyone a happy Monday and hope your week goes well, both nutritionally and in every other way! I started posting here about a week ago - the first week I've just been trying to avoid all the obvious stuff (i.e. no booze and cake, for a start) but as I get into the swing of it I might do the NHS diet. I was invited out to a special lunch on Saturday at which I behaved as though I'd never heard of the concept of dieting, but apart from that have been pretty diligent. I'm not going to weigh myself for a bit as if nothing has happened I might be so discouraged that I give up. Having been comfort eating since the age of 11 I find it so difficult psychologically to give up my prop that I'm trying to be as encouraging to myself as humanly possible. Just knowing that I'm now one of a community of people trying to do the same thing is so encouraging - on several occasions just that has enabled me to ignore delicious treats. Three Cheers for All of Us, is what I say!
