we are on day 3 of the grayiest, foggiest & miserable weather we have had in a while ( i was going to mention the words "ever" and "ages" but tbh we have had :poop:weather most of the year) so these words do not apply.

I have been in a low mood, and generally grotty since monday and initially could be attributed to TOTM but as this has ended it seems that the weather is the reason for me wanting to eat comforting stodgy food which is more often than not laden with calories :frown:..why is it bad weather makes you want to eat?:unsure:

Yeah I know what you mean, it's been so bleak here too - just grey everywhere and kind of drizzly, but not raining, not even lightly, yet it's wet everywhere. It's like living in a cloud.

I'm also really hating the dark mornings, finding it an awful struggle to get up in the mornings.

Yes it is crap weather, i didn't see the boys for a week because i was poorly and haven't done anything with them for nearly two weeks now, no motivation and just want to stay home and eat crap!

Thinking i might turn them away for the winter and start again in the spring, it won't do them any harm.

I have to say that for a change we are getting some lovely weather in Glasgow (ie it is not raining!).

I do know what you mean about the bad weather making you want to eat rubbish though! I suppose it's a natural response to want to eat more in winter so you have a bit more "protection from the cold" so your body is just looking out for you ;)

Our weather hasn't been too bad - but I can sympathise, when it is dull and gloomy it makes me fed up too. I am struggling a bit atm, weight wise. I have been really trying hard to cut back and stick to my diet - but found it hard this past day or so due to having extra work (all physical stuff involving lugging!) and I have been soHUNGRY!

I've lost a little bit of weight recently but that is due to be starting a nicer job and eating a bit more healthily rather than feeling rushed at lunch so eating pot noodles and other convenience and junk food. I have actually noticed I'm not craving that kind of food as much as I used to. Although right now I could really go a packet of crisps!!! (and not just a small packet, one of the sharing bags of Doritos or something like that!!!)

I was so hungry and empty the other night I ate a dry crust of brown bread! I had to eat something as I actually felt light headed. Not good! I need to stock up on bananas or apples.
