@Summer I'm sooo relieved to hear Mint Slices have a 50% higher success rate than Tim Tams. I have, however, just found some Chocolate Ripple biscuits right at the bottom of the biscuit tin. Any idea where they sit on the SISRI (Summer's Increased Success Rate Indicator)?
@Caesardust, I agree with the other lovelies. Even when I hit 45,000 on my HCG test I had hardly any symptoms. Early on the only thing I could pin as a possible symptom was hunger at midnight, and a lower backache, which if I hadn't been trying to get UTD I would probably have easily ignored. It's very early days hon I know it's easier said than done, but try not to worry. And spend a bit of time each day envisioning your emby snuggling in tight - I believe in the power of positive thinking. Hugs to you - I know it's hard. Every step of this bl00dy journey is a challenge in it's own right.
Right there with you hon! It is a constant battle. Remember I lost those 3 kilos before Christmas? Remember Christmas?! Hello, three kilos....oh, and I see you brought a friend with you...and your name?....hello Kilo Number 4.
I just keep making small adjustments. If I look at the bigger picture it sends me running for the tim tams, so every can of diet coke vs regular coke helps. Every time I have a banana instead of a bikkie I congratulate myself.
Eventually all the little achievements will add up to progress.
Don't be too hard on yourself. You have bigger fish to fry
(Mmmm....fish and chips.......)
Nah @Tahli, choc ripple don't even register on the list. They are right down there with the stale dusty gingernuts nobody wants
You need to head more into the wagon wheel territory I think. Or maybe the buttery jammy biscuit arena.....
@Blossom74 Oh my god, I haven't had a Wagon Wheel since I was kid! Don't tempt this PMT chocolate obsessed monster!! Imagine how crunchy they'd be if you popped them in the freezer for a few minutes!!!!
Ok, I'm adjusting my figure too @Blossom74. Like you, confirmation is the name of the game, so I'll go exactly half of yours again...36. I think that's more realistic at this early stage. Conservative and safe!!
