Omg I'm back!
I'm back!!! LoL
After losing around 3st last year doing Exante I swapped onto slim and save and to be honest I think that was my major mistake!! Too much choice for me I knew where I was with Exante, I would have my Shake, Soup and bar and that was going really well!
Once I went to slim and save I started picking at other little bits, 'oh it won't hurt' well I'm now just 6lb under my initial start weight and enough is enough!!!
So here I am, back with the plan that worked for me, I know I can do it as I've done it before but those people that say its hard to get back on once you come off are right!!! When I did it last time I was able to have a night out and get back on it but when you have been off for so long it is sooooo hard, trust me I've tried a couple of times and failed miserably, obviously kidding myself I was in the 'zone' lets hope this wont be yet another failed attempt!!!!
So I'm on day three, going ok not going to say I'm enjoying cos I really am not, it is pure will power getting me through these first few days/weeks.
I know my body will get to a point where food doesn't bother me and I don't feel hungry so until then shear will power is all I have :-) HELP! Lol
good luck to all you peeps out there on your own journeys x
Good luck with your restart. I remember when I went back onto LL the second time it was so much harder than the first time I did it. I really hope that I can do this to the end and then that'll be it, I'll never have to do it again. But we all think that initially dont we?
Hi ya Hun, yeah I'm sure we all 'think' we can do it again, it's blooming hard tho! If we fail we only have ourselves to blame, I could kick myself over and over for letting myself go back to how I was before but it's not going to get me anywhere other than battered and bruised!! ;-)

At least you've come back before you put the whole lot back on and more. I lost 5 stone on LL the first time and put back 7 stone :( You're doing what you need to in time to catch this, well done.
Awww bless you I feel your pain but no point thinking if only we have to put a pin in it and move on :-) x

I have done a similar thing to yourself...
Lost just over 4 and a half stone 2 years ago...
Last year, I did Slim and Save ... and Exante.. off and on for virtually the whole year. Unfortunately there was more off's than ons, and I put on nearly 3st :eek:, a stone of that was over xmas and new year :o
I'm back on Exante only now... and I have had a wobble or two, but ultimately I am losing properly again now :D
If your 3 days in already, you're doing great :D
Welcome back! Day three congrats, it can only get easier from here,
Arh well done Marge, it's awful trying to get back on you should be really proud of yourself I think most of us will have wobbles at some point, unfortunately life gets it the way sometimes, it's hard when you have special occasions and your not eating/drinking the main thing is getting straight back on it as the longer you leave it the harder it is to get back on track!

As said previously , what's done is done , I was very ill a few years ago and lost a lot of weight when ill, I remember finally getting well and thinking "OMG Where's my gut gone ? I've got a flat tummy !" , instead of using that as a starting point to a fitness regime ,healthy eating etc , I took it for granted and gave in to the craving my body had for loads of carbs and soon returned to my per-illness weight .
But like me , we'll hopefully both learn from our lapses and we're doing something positive about it
Stick with it , I'm sure you will
Hi ya Mark,

Well done on your 6lb loss!! Once I see the scales going down I know that will spur me on a bit too but I won't weigh until Monday as if I don't feel it's a big enough loss I know it will dishearten me and that's not good at this early stage! Lol
I know a lot of people poo poo them but I find them useful especially in the first week, I used a ketostix today and I am well in ketosis :-)
I don't physically feel hungry at all it's just in my mind! Sugar is the most addictive substance I know and that is my nemesis!!!! I have the worlds worst sweet tooth! I've got to get my head thinking the same as my body, I know it'll take a bit of time for me to get to that stage I'm just hoping and praying my will power holds out that long lol
SORRY RANT TIME!!!
Omg cooking dinner for the hubby tonight was HELL!!! I actually felt like crying!! How terrible that food has this hold over me, now I'm fed up and craving like mad, i'm having constant battles in my head, one moment I can hear myself saying 'I can't do this' then the next I hear myself bashing that thought down with 'I've done it before I can do it again' Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr I HATE BEING FAT!!!!
Oh hon, you'll get past the craving for food thing. I've actually been cooking for my daughter more than I was cooking beforehand (we were living on ready meals) and I find that it doesn't bother me at all, not even the smell of it, I'm totally fine with it. You just need to get past this first week, be strong.
Be strong PP !!
You want to be thin, more than you need to eat ;)
