  1. Thanks for the mention! I'm glad that you liked my format enough to use it yourself. Sharing my journal for a week really helped me get back in the groove.

    May I ask where you are? I assume somewhere in Europe because of your stone/pound weight, and also because you mentioned that fruit has no points. In the USA, fruit does have points! Supposedly we are switching to the European way soon, which sounds great to me, since I love fruit. :-)

  2. you're welcome : )
    I'm definately feeling more in the groove already, which i'm really going to need because Im going back to uni on saturday!

    Im in England yep. Fruit does have points here too (the apple and pear green tea is just flavoured, apples and pears on their own have points :( ) though it's generally pretty low in points. I spent a week where I only let myself snack on fruit and veg because its lower in points that my usual snacks, but I felt SO much better for it!
