    I find with the water thing 2L in a jug looks like a lot, so I just use a bigger than average glass (my one at work is over 350ml) so you get way more in six glasses than you think and it's not so hard IYKWIM? That way even if your are pushing it, if you have one before and after a meal you get your 6 glasses in without trying.
    I try to have one though everytime I go to the loo (I have had kidney failure though and drink about 3L a day)

    Mrsmac I love that Lean cuisine salmon pasta - yum!!

    Actually WW has a few nice ones too. I find most of the chicken ones are pretty good.

    Thanks Shazz - have just managed to get another couple of glasses in this evening. Will probably be up to the loo all night now LOL. I only had 2 coffees today as well which is about half my usual effort so feeling pleased on that front.

    Well done mrs mac - avoiding the pizza will be worth it on weigh in day

    My day today:
    B'fast
    1 black espresso coffee - no milk or sugar (a legacy of the SS days)
    175g low fat natural yoghurt (another hangover from SS days)
    100g fresh pineapple

    Lunch
    100g home made hommous
    celery sticks (no idea how many)
    1 apple

    Dinner
    1 medium bowl of lemon thyme chicken with spinach and pea pilaf (see the other thread for the recipe)
    Going for a cup of tea now.
