    Hello :)
    Hope you're all doing very, very well - better than me at least!! I'm really struggling lately and I have a holiday in 11 days time... Before I sabotage myself completely with awful crooked throughts, I want to re-focus and lose as much as possible before I go away!! I don't want to keep doing the awful things I'm doing!!

    So, I'm starting a little re-focus thread. Starting tomorrow, count down your successes! Hope some of you will join me. :)

    Congratulations on your amazing losses!! I will join you as well. I am desperately trying to focus my mind to stick to this diet long enough to get to goal for once. same as Minerva im also going on holiday this month. I'm really trying to take it one day at a time as I find that helps, rather than thinking 'oh well im going to lapse on holiday I might as well not bother' grrrrr lol xx

    I'm going to Marrakech for a long weekend at the end of the month. Two weeks after that I'm off to Portugal for a week:D My aim is to stay focused right up until holidays and then get straight back on afterwards.
    I'm an EQ2 player :D xx

    Your holiday plans sound lovely! I hope to go to Marrakech one day, as for Portugal, wasn't entirely sure what to make of it, then again I was rather little when I was in Lisbon last. :)

    And *hiss!!* EQ2 player. ;)

    Minerva, hope everything is going OK for you and you still have your focus. I have decided to have a little break from lighter life at the moment because I just cannot seem to stay abstinent for more than a couple of days at a time. Hopefully i can maintain what I've achieved so far and come back strong after my holidays.

    Weeeellll.... No one joined me and I felt silly posting all on my own...
    I can't seem to do 100% days for more than a few days at a time though either, but the days that are a bit more "off" aren't awful. At least, from a calorie counting point of view, they are fine.

    Remember, it's all a balance.. We don't gain or lose weight on a daily basis, it adjusts to the average of what we're consuming... So mostly 100% days balanced out by a not so 100% day - is fine. It works out, just takes a little longer. :) Don't worry too much about it!

    Hi Preeti! Oooh I love the new avatar, you're looking very sexy! :D

    I did fall off the wagon somewhat on Sunday :p (so 1 day off...) But back on it now, so if I complete my next two days then 10 out of the 11 days 100% done! Not so bad :)

    Today: Done. :) Another 2 to go!

    Hey Minerva
    I'm restarting total tomorrow and so determined to get to my goal weight. I remember when I first joined, we started the 100 day challenge and it worked. So that's what i want to do now. 14 september is the date :))

    I go for my weigh in tonight. I am still about 2 stone off where I want to be. I go on holiday with my friends on July 4th (25 days time) - I have been total from Febuary 24th and have not cheated once. I skipped the milk week too. I discussed my options with my LLC and she suggested starting mangment/lite for afew weeks before I go away to build my strength back up and get my body used to food. Its Magaluf im going to! So I plan to have a good time, and come back straight to LL again. Its my birthday next wednesday and im in a difficult position. Im at the stage where everyone is relling me how I loom good, and that I should stop because I look ill. All my friends are out drinking this weekend, I would love to have a drink for my birthday. Im scared. Im in touching distance of being fit and healthy for my holidays and my mind starts playing thoughts to me. I really just want some tuna, I want to fit in. As I type this im sitting in my car relaxing on my dinner break at work. I need some advice..what does everyone think is best for me? SouldI begin to introduce food now? Help. (I hope my weight loss is good tonight) and sorry for the long message guys!

    First of all, don't be scared. :) It's only a stray thought, a moment of insecurity. We all feel that we're standing at a crossroads sometimes. Uncertainty is a b*tch.
    Are you tempted because it's your birthday? Is it because you're feeling left out from the 'normal' and routine things that your mates and yourself used to do? Is it a feeling of deprivation (so the raging child ego state!)?

    Remember that - if you don't go out drinkining for your birthday, it is NOT the last time going out with your mates will happen! There will be plenty of nights when you can go out and enjoy yourself later. :) Right now you are in the weight loss stage - the critical point in your life where you are putting effort into who YOU want to be. To sabotage it now would almost say you don't care. Whats more important - a few beers and some tuna at this moment (it will be gone in a blink of an eye...) or YOUR LONGTERM HAPPINESS? :)

    My boyfriend originally lost about 11 stone on Lighter Life and he never wavered once. His health and his appearance was so important to him. Because he never gave into it, he is now so much happier with himself. He is no longer fake happy. He goes out and enjoys life, he goes out with his friends and he never feels like he has to hide anything. He is free. He reached his goal and is enjoying the rewards of being strong. He had his moments of weakness and frustration, just like you did. He also went through the comments where people thought 'he looked ill". But you know why they thought he looked ill? It was because they were all still thinking about the "Big Jolly Lyle". Give it time, LL works so very quickly for men - so quickly that your friends and family have no time to respond and change their personal perception of you. Be patient and work through the bad comments. People are scared of change.

    Be strong. You're nearly done. :) Only a little bit more to go. Stick it out. ;) Life will meet you with open arms on the other side.
