    Ah, yes it's hard to change that negative little voice in your head, especially if you have grown up with people around you reinforcing it at every step it becomes part of who you are in the end and it's hard to imagine defining yourself in any other way. At some point you have to stand up and say "i'm not putting up with any of this nonsense" and giving yourself a firm talking to... and actually believing that the negative crap you are saying IS NOT really who you are. I found that if i challenge every negative thought that enters my mind, it does eventually help change it - it takes quite a bit of effort for a while though as it's hard to spot the negative voice but eventually it becomes a bit like a "whack a mole" contest at the fairground, spot the negative thought and swat it away to be replaced with something positive. Over time this technique really helped me free up my thought process and allow positive thoughts to take root. And the other thing is removing negative people, events, associations from your life too.

    "I value myself enough to feed myself only food that will nourish me and make me healthy. I deserve, and will be, a healthy weight. I am not perfect and make mistakes, but these mistakes make me stronger and more determined to succeed, my downfalls will not beat me. I will make a difference in my own life and be in control of where i am going and who i will be 12 months from now, a week from now, or even who i am in the next 5 minutes."

    Had a bit of an oopsie today. Was going to have a square of dark chocolate, but ended up eating a whole 100g bar. Which is 15g of carb so still within my allowance but it's made me feel really hungry all of a sudden. Going to have a big steak in a bit and just carry on, still keeping my carbs below 20g for the day. Dark chocolate is now off my list of things to eat for a while as i can't control myself.

    Losingit - and everyone else who contributed - I am so proud of your comments.

    A lot of history for me here, and I'm not going to go into it here at the moment, but one parent tried to suppress me for years (you're not pretty, you're not bright, yada yada).

    Parenthood and good guidance are paramount to children, and I know without a doubt, Losingit, that you are a great mum and giving your child a fab start in life.

    It's really sad when the people that are meant to be the only ones in the world you can rely on to care for you, hurt you instead.

    Going back to the diet, that chocolate from yesterday made me put on 2lbs of water weight overnight despite me still keeping my overall carbs below 20g. Just goes to show the effect TYPE of carbs has, it's not just about keep carbs low it's about avoiding the wrong kinds (like sugar). I also feel very hungry like i'm coming out of ketosis. I also think it matters when you have the carbs too, if you eat 20g of carbs in one go (or 15g as i did yesterday) the effect is very different than spreading carbs out with each meal and having lets say no more than 6 or 7g per meal. I also noticed my body is super sensitive to carbs, any carbs at all, i'm not one of those people that can eat 70g or 80g a day and still stay in ketosis, when it comes time to upping my carbs when i get near goal weight, i half expect my tipping point for carbs without gaining weight will be somewhere in the region of 30g a day.

    Absolutely - the type of carbs and how many you have in one go can cause an insulin spike. It's really unlikely to take you out of ketosis but will it cause cravings or shock your body into holding onto a bit of water? Yep and yep. Even so, you picked a much better thing to go overboard with than you could have and I doubt the effects will last long. We all have trigger foods.

    Yep, chocolate is definitely a trigger food for me. Funnily enough, cocoa powder doesn't trigger me to overeat - even when i make delicious chocolatey treats like chocolate Atkins cheesecake mix. So from now onwards i'll avoid the chocolate and stick to cheesecake .

    Have found the past few days pretty tough mentally, but spurred on by the fact that January is almost over and i've almost completed my January challenge. Every day in January has had no more than 20g carb, which is a vast improvement on my performance in the last half of 2012. Problem is, i've lost much less weight than i was losing then, frustrating. Only thing i'm doing differently is not exercising, maybe that's it, i honestly didn't think the exercise was making that much of a difference but i guess it was. I'm just not in the mood to start again at the moment.

    On the brighter side, i just ran a credit check on myself and my score came back at 983 / 1000! I really desperately want to buy my own property, have plenty of income and savings and everything, don't owe a penny to anyone, but i have a default on my credit record dating back to January 2008. When i was pregnant with my daughter i had to quit my agency job at the time and i was unable to pay a debt for three months, hence the default. Totally frustrating as it's STILL stopping me moving on with my life, and i've got another 12 months to go before it will disappear, can't get a mortgage even with that great score. Anyway, the end is in sight, in 12 months i'll be able to get a mortgage and will have (i hope) a perfect credit score. I just hope my business holds up (eek!). I'm already obsessively looking at properties on rightmove and dreaming....

    It is fun to dream. I get frustrated because when i look at houses i always see how much more i can get for "just" another 20k on top of my budget. It seems like all the houses in my price range are in bad areas and are small but just that 20k more and i can get something really nice.

    I bought some new coffee today: Douwe Egberts UK | Products | The Flavour Collective - Smooth Caramel it tastes amazing, even with the almond milk it doesn't clash at all. I can't find any carb data though . I weighed how much coffee i use per cup and it's around 2g, so it won't hurt to have one a day but i wish i could find a carb count for it somewhere. I might write to them and ask. It's probably only around 0.2g to 0.5g max.

    Hi, re the coffee, the site says there are 2 cals per mug, so if all the cals come from carbs there is a max of .5 carbs per mug. 1gr carb equals 4 cals. I think I will look out for this the next time I am shopping, it sound lovely.

    Ah ok, that makes sense, thankyou!

    It is on offer in Tescos at the moment, 2 pound instead of 3 (sorry can't get the pound symbol.. my computer set up for US english lol). It's really really nice, i love it. They do it in hazelnut and vanilla too.
