    feel like giving up :(

    Why oh why do I do this to myself. Just had a massive binge and now feel soo horrible for it. Iv lost 3 stone so far and im on my last stone to loose and the weightloss has slowed down tremendously. Its hard enough me being sts week after week and now iv just gone and made it even more difficult for myself. I was fine this morning had my 3 shakes and then it hit about 8pm and started nibbling on my daughters left over chips had about 4 chips then moved on to 2 vegtable samosas that hubby had left on his plate. I feel like a human dustbin seriously. And then felt bad after having all that so sat there for about 10mins thinking I wana have another binge and one little snack wont hurt. Before I knew it I had had a exante bar 2 packets of skips and a devon custard pot.
    I have a deadline of 31st july to loose at least another stone for my sisters wedding and the way im going it looks as if im gona end up 3 stone heavier (

    Hi Zara, I posted this on my diary the other day. Thought it might help you in your current frame of mind although I hope you're feeling better today.

    Quote Originally Posted by Thornhill Cate View Post

Worth reading her whole post but this point resonated with me especially due to the comments made above by Lynne and If at first. Thought it might help.

    "If you've had a bad week - don't go AWOL. Come back on to this forum, accept what you have done and get back on track. If you have 7 beautiful roses, if one of them wilts and dies - do you chuck the bunch of seven away or just the one rose? Same - if you have one bad day don't throw your whole week away, same with a month, 30 beautiful roses, if 7 of your roses die, you still have 23 beautiful roses to keep. Please don't chuck the 23 away. If you don't nip it in the bud - mind the pun, the problem gets more out of control than it initially was."

    Only thing I would add to that is not even to leave it a day. If you have a bad hour then you don't have to throw away the other 23 in your day. Just get straight back on track.
    Good luck on sticking with it. I know it must be frustrating. It seems to have taken me forever to shift my second stone. Have had 2lb loss after 2lb loss and that's just not fast enough for me really but I'm still plugging away. You have already come such a long way and you have a whole month to lose even more. Try to keep your sister's wedding day in mind and keep thinking how fab you'll feel on the day with close to another stone off, or even just half a stone, and how rubbish you'll feel if you are a stone heavier than you are now. You really will be kicking yourself. Chin up hun. It's only four weeks which is nothing in the grand scheme of things.

    Don't beat yourself up chick it happens to us all, you can't let this diet rule your life if you do what will happen at the end of it? Take the opportunity
    to learn from it, we all will have to go back to conventional food at some time, remembering that the binges don't make us feel good about our selfs will help us to prepare for a successful maintenance when we get to goal (hope that made sense, it does in my head...lol)

    Be proud of yourself of how far you have come, brush yourself down put yesterday behind & get back on that horse...

    Good luck sweetie xxx

    Everyone slips up, and it's those slip ups that help us learn about ourselves. In the grand scheme of things you've done so well! Don't let one little blip bring you down, you're better than that. Learn from it, keep that end goal in sight and move on!!! x

    Hi Zara

    I have been doing the same thing on and off for a while now and feel like I am just wasting time and money so I have set myself a challenge to be 100% for the whole of July and we can do it together if you like. Always good to have some encouragement

    Also forgot it's my 10th wedding anniversary 31st July so another good reason to stay on track!

    Come on we can do this!!!!!!

    Natalie x

    Hi guys!
    Thank you all so much for ur words of encouragment. It honestly has helped alot. And I feel so much better for it. So iv had a 97% day today as had a nibble on some cheese ( oh lord help me) its only cos I had my last pack too earli that I started feelin a lil hungry later so had a few pinches of cheese. Weighed myself this afternoon and I put on a pound which dont seem bad...
    I guess that slimatee did the trick lol ( sorry tmi) but 1 pound takes me ages to loose. Next weigh in will be monday. Im currently 10.13 hoping for low 10s by end of july at least. 10 stone would be a bonus
    im hoping for a 100% day from tommoro until the end of july. So will defo take u up on that offer natalie x

    You've done brilliantly so far with your weight loss so a big pat on the back for that Zara.

    Its so hard when the loss slows down but you seem to have got over that last hurdle by nipping the eating in the bud so that shows you are strong enough to get to goal.

    This month is going to fly by so take one day at a time & keep coming on here for the support when you feel temptation taking over.

    Good luck today xx

    Hey Zara

    Hows it going? I've managed day 2 at 100%. Weighed this morning and lost 3lbs so far...whoop whoop!! And only 29 days to go lol.

    Really struggled at tea time as kids and hubby were having cooked chicken wraps for tea and I would usually have some chicken and maybe a babybel cheese but went and had a shower instead.

    I think the weekend will be my testing time

    Stay strong Xx

    Its so hard when the loss slows down but you seem to have got over that last hurdle by nipping the eating in the bud so that shows you are strong enough to get to goal.

    This month is going to fly by so take one day at a time & keep coming on here for the support when you feel temptation taking over.

    Good luck today xx

    Thanks susie the first 3 stone dropped off so quikly but this last stone is a killer. And having no weightloss week after week can get so depressing. I really do hope im strong enough and can resist temptation at least for this month.
    The support on this group is amazing. I really appreciate it. It really does help. Had a good day today mainly because iv got a really bad cold and have lost my appetite. Onwards and downwards hopefully xxx

    Hi metallic chick had a good day today only cos iv got such a bad cold and have lost my appetite so that has helped loads to b honest lol only had 2 packs today. Finished work at 10pm and couldnt really stomach anythin at that time. Thats what I will keep saying to myself "it will all be worth it in the end" to stop myself feeding my craving. Fingers crossed for a loss this week x
