    Aww chick

    I think you should join me in ditching the scales!? I've lost inches but only 1lb in a cpl of weeks, getting fed up with scales, all the thinking/worrying involved.

    I would say go back on to whatever cals you decide, and stick at it, for a cpl of weeks & try not to weigh, it'll be hard, but I think you might keep getting gains for a while, I duno how long it will take your body to recover from being starved, but stick at the right cals, ignore the scales & you'll def see the inches come off

    I'm gonna take some measurements now but stick to scales also, and even if I do jump on the scales throughout the week out of habit or curiosity then I'll make sure only to take note of my weekly scale readings every Sunday.

    Well it's my official weigh in day today, so weighed in and I've stayed the same since last Sunday. I'm grateful it's not a gain, but it's still confusing how I can eat so little yet not lose any weight.

    Anyway, I'm forcing myself to get back to eating normally today regardless of whether I want to or not. I'm gonna aim for 1260 calories, that's the the method that they use for the biggest loser contestants anyway - 6 x your body weight in pounds. So I'll see how I get on with that.

    Hopefully 1260 calories should be easy to hit, but I'm gonna stop eating so many carb loaded things too like I did last week -- I think I lived off crumpets, bread & pancakes last week! And I'm gonna concentrate on eating bran flakes or weetabix for breakfast for fibre, and then protein rich meals for lunch & dinner such as eggs, chicken etc.

    I don't have room in my parents house to do 30 day shred now that me & my son have moved back in and taken over.. and I haven't yet convinced one of my friends to come to the gym with me, so for the time being I'm gonna concentrate on doing some push ups, squats, side lunges & front lunges and a few other body weight moves with 2KG dumbbells. Hopefully that should build my strength up anyway.

    Hey everyone.

    After some thinking I've decided to go back to Cambridge for a little while.. The main reason is I really don't have an appetite at all since the break up, and over the past 2 weeks have barely eaten, and am gaining weight now rather than losing. I feel & look run down and I don't think this is healthy for me at all.. and if anything my appetite is getting worse and the sight & smell of any food, whether its healthy or junk food is just turning my stomach.

    So maybe Cambridge will help not only lose weight, but give me the nutrients and vitamins I really need. I know the hunger won't be a problem because I'm so turned off food at the moment & think I will be for a while, and I even dislike squash and pop now too and can't bare those, so drinking water won't be an issue either.

    I think this path for me will save me because with the way I'm going & feeling I think I'll adapt an eating disorder before long if I don't do something.

    Hope you all support me.

    Well I text my local CDC but she's away on holiday for a week, so she wouldn't be able to see me until next week.. So now I'm torn cause I don't think there's any other CDC's local to me. I might just continue CC'ing and see how I get on, I'm gonna force myself to eat 1200 calories & keep it fairly low carb and see how I get on.. then if I'm still struggling next week I'll contact the CDC again.

    To true.. Just concentrate on looking after yourself, eat as well as you can, if you don't use up all your calories then have a treat now and then, that's the beauty of calorie counting. wrap up warm and get out walking. It will help to get the metabolism moving again plus you will feel so much better. Stick with it. Xx

    Hey everyone :-)

    Well I'm starting to pick myself up now & feel a bit better. It's been over two weeks and I'm adjusting to life without the ex and adapting into the new routine of living with parents & spending time with my friends, family and son.

    What I really wanna focus on is my body & getting it into incredible shape for this summer. I need my confidence and self esteem back!

    My appetite is coming back, but the last two weeks I've eaten barely anything and have been stuck at 14.12 stone for a while. I'm constantly bloated & feeling run down, so that must be lack of food.

    So tomorrow I'll start eating properly, eating lots of lean protein & low carbs and hitting a good calorie amount. Also need to start weight training too!

    Hope everyone else is good :-)
