    Hiya OliveOyl, Ive just come back off a holiday today (which I could ill afford) but it was booked before my LBM. My friend popped in and left me some groceries to come back to, untill i went shopping. She left a carrot cake a nice plate round one and its gone, OH and some too but I had most.

    On the saving front. I have not been out grocery shopping since I got back. Plenty in the cupboards to eat and we out at mums for sunday lunch tomorrow and daughters for tea.

    Bluejeans, I was going to press the "thanks" button, but there's no way after you've given me an irritating tune to go round and round my head :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    Photogenic First Post First Anniversary Mortgage-free Glee!
    I enjoy my food and have always had a good apetite unforunately! As a kid I was skinny, used to get called "bean pole"! Think I suffer from middle aged spread now! I'm not really into puddings or sweet stuff and I've just had my dinner and now have a craving for something sweet and tempted to go on the long dog walk via the shop and get a mega bar of chocolate! Might have to go out in a minute on a walk...
    Debt 30k in 2008.:eek::o Cleared all my debt in 2013 and loving being debt free :)
    Mortgage free since 2014 :)

    Hi, can I join in too please?!

    I'm struggling big time! OH and me have been on diet for past 2 months - and have been doing really well, until recently!

    Boyfriend is still SOOO motivated and running every night and doing lots of exercise and healthy eating. I, on the other hand, have just inherited my Mum's cafe. I feel like i'm sitting in a giant cake tin! My motivation is slipping away and temptation seems to be rubbing my nose in the Victoria Sponges!! HELP!
    1st 7lb off, 1st 7lb to go! 27/06/08
    and about £20k to go to!!!
