    Well that was a pleasant surprise this morning. Stood on the scales, having not weighed myself since before Christmas and I came in at 9 stone 1. I was hovering between 9-4 and 9-7 before Christmas, having been up to 10-7 3 years ago.

    Have not been particularly good in January, finished up the rest of the Christmas treats apart from some cheese, which we've been having for lunch at the weekends, with biscuits. Have also been out twice eating pizzas and desserts. Last week I scoffed a whole large Cadbury's caramel bar at one sitting, admittedly on a day when I'd been working hard and walked about 9miles.

    Really thought I'd be paying for it on the scales and that my jeans have stretched, but apparently not.

    Well done Slinky, wish I could do as well instead of these half hearted attempts.

    Pam looking back at your previous postings are you sure you're eating enough? You seem to be concentrating quite a bit on low calorie count as well as low carb, your body may be going into starvation mode.

    I don't count calories or carbs. I upped the fat and cut out pasta, rice, spuds, cereals and bread. Cauli rice became my friend as the accompaniment to almost everything where carbs had bulked meals out.

    It may be worth reading Escape the Diet Trap by Dr John Briffa which helped us enormously. Took a few weeks for the weight to start dropping, but once it did, even if I did have a few days of the wrong sort of food, getting back on track saw it fall off again. 3 years on I've never gone back near my previous top weight and neither has my husband. Plus it doesn't feel like a diet when you eat lots of steak, eggs, cream, butter etc.

    I do keep an eye on calories too, I eat butter, eggs, cheese and lots of meat, I don`t eat cream much, never have pasta, rice or cereals, I do have the occasional slice of bread, but prefer seeded bread, I tend to eat later as once I eat I don`t stop, so fast until mid afternoon.
    I am not sticking to it correctly but hopefully when the weather improves so will my mindset.
