The Troll is so called as a nod to moomintroll. Her soft squashy face when she was a wee bubba made us think of the velour hippo-like puppet from the eighties. Her nickname is meant affectionately.

Not like the Trolls that have invaded the Slimming World Facebook page. I don't have ANY affectionate feelings about them. My personal tactic is to report, block and ignore their comments. These people hide behind made up profiles and comment on real peoples lives simply to make others feel bad about themselves. It's what makes them happy. They feed off people responding to them.

So "Booooo" to the Trolls.

But "Yay!" to Slimming World and the lovely ladies I have met through Facebook and Blogger sites who are genuine. We are still looking after each other and finding inspiration in one another. Fact is the Trolls are right, we are fatties! (well, I am at least) but we've made a choice to fix that, and this support is helping us get there. Troll rant over.

Talking of inspirational ladies helping people reach their dieting goals, Mother-In-Law from Heaven made a gorgeous BBQ for dinner on this sunny Saturday evening. (Picture to follow when I get home tonight)

I had a mixed green salad with tuna, prawn & scallop skewers marinated in rosemary, garlic and olive oil (HEALTHY B CHOICE) and a mango and onion salsa. It was blinking gorgeous - and syn free with the oil as a healthy choice.

BREAKFAST: APPLE AND BANANA (AT 4AM WHEN WOKEN BY SQUIRKY), 5 SCRAMBLED EGGS AND A CUP OF TEA WITH A DASH OF MILK (0.5 SYNS); LUNCH: LEAN BACON PASTA BAKE WITH 4 OLIVES (0.5 SYNS) AND CHEESE (HEALTHY OPTION A); DINNER: "SEAFOOD SKEWERS AND MANGO SALSA"; SNACKS: DIET COKE, GRAPES, CHERRIES, ALPEN LITE BAR (3 SYNS); PUDDING: 2 CHERRY MULLER LIGHTS ON FRESH JUNE STRAWBERRIES
