I prefer not to say where I am.... But glad you are having sharp cheddar!! Mild is just tasteless! Enjoy your cheese Gromit!

Day 8
started early and getting used to my routine. Work was good and I can see how I'm being more efficient in work too which I'm happy with.

Only downside of past two days is that I am feeling a bit more tired. I don't know whether it's because I am more busy, I'm probably engaging my brain more too lol

Anyway, looking forward to hitting double digits because it's another step!

Sorry to ask dear NorthernLass.
And thank you once again, I found sharp Australian cheddar just now. You lead me to it.

I was SO very tired for the entire first month: I think lots of us are. Our bodies and every part of us are recovering, and sleep is healing.

Caprice....are you alright?

Just checking in. End of day 3

Feeling tired but struggling to get good sleep , also feeling irritated and finding myself let it show a little at work......nothing too bad just a little quick to get annoyed.

I heard back from the recovery counsellor and have a appointment next week, so am a bit worried about what will come of that....but guess (hope) it can only be positive.

I do not have the concentration span at the moment to do much - my mind just refocuses on this..so I am going to go to bed and hope for a good nights sleep.

Best wishes to all of you.

Ah cheese, the wonder food. When I was pregnant I had gestational diabetes and most things I ate made my blood sugar rise and rise and rise. except the beautiful cheese No sugar in cheese and now I eat it too and blood sugar stays stable. Obviously full of fat but you don't need much of it to feel full. Chicken and cheese, steak and cheese, lobster and cheese. cheese on its own.

I'm with you on this Northernlass. A nice piece of extra mature cheddar perfect. I'm a bit obsessed

Day 3 coming to a close. I'm a bit cross too TTT1 and taking it out on people at work. Just tried to keep my head down today really. Feeling really tired too. I fell asleep in the car waiting for my son to come out of after school sports club today!

Apart from that , eaten v badly again today but not beating myself up about it. I think it's important to listen to our bodies in the first few days a not drinking has to be the most important thing.

Thanks again for being with us Venus

How are you Caprice? Did you go to the victory parade?

Same! My clothes are feeling tight ughhhh. Sobriety first though, right? There's plenty of time to worry about weight - one support group at a time

My thoughts exactly. Even once I get to the weekend and hopefully feel better then will start proper walking, exercise and eating more healthily. I find eating well on work days very difficult as we have a cafe on site which does home baking every morning, cakes, cream cakes, scones, ice cream and many other delicious treats

Hate to run it in but one of my good customers works at a cheese company and brings me as much as I want. Last week he brought in extra mature English cheddar (5kg) and wookey hole cheddar (5kg) oh and 2..5kg of parmasan. How on earth am I going to eat all that before it goes off?!

Anyway, work was busy today and managed a sneaky 4 mile run after.

Iíve decided Iím going to take a picture of myself in the same place every day so I can see the physical changes as well as mental changes. Think it will help with motivation, not that I am lacking any motivation at the moment!!

Awesome idea Pete.

Off to make dinner....omelettes, but no cheese. It was my dad's thing.....it is wurst, (kosher, it has to be for me), and tomato.....I cook the salami first a little as my dad taught me, then it has an awesome flavour in the omelette....lots of tomato, good-quality eggs.....better stop talking now....hungry husband. s

Being from NZ I have to agree, cheddar from the UK is much better. I have been to cheddar before and done cheese tastings, they are divine although my body reacts to it and I have like a hot flush when I eat cheddar..
