5 stones lost--keep falling off the wagon!


Gold Member
Hi everyone!

I need some help! Having lost five stones over the last 6 months, I fell off the wagon a couple of weeks ago--and now I'm having terrible trouble climbing back on. I can sole source for 2 days--seemingly quite happily, then on day 3 find myself bingeing! Yikes! I thought I was over that. I thought my stomach had shrunk--but apparently not! :break_diet:

I'm determined to try and beat this though. I've gone from being a size 24 to being a size 14-16 and I'm terrified if I carry on like this I'm going to put all the weight back on!

Anyone got some words of wisdom? Anyone been where I am now and cracked it? I'd like to lose another stone, ideally two. So I was looking for a pep talk/advice/kick up the rear, whatever you'd like to give me that you think might work to get my head back to where it should be!

I've read other posts like this and the advice seems to be to try SS+ where you have 3 sachets and a 200cal meal - as in aam week. This means your still getting food so harder to cheat, if you know what i mean.
I'm sure a CDC will help you with an answer tomorrow.

SS+ seems like a good idea! I've been having the same problem as you and my CDC recommends alternating between SS and SS+ so if you can SS for a couple of days then do so, then on the 3rd day, do SS+, ok so it's a small meal but it might stave of the need to binge!!

Thanks for all the advice so far. I knew folks here would know what to do! I haven't visited the site in a while--I'd forgotten how great the support was!

The AAM thing might work--if I could stop! Cos that's the problem. I start off eating chicken. I'll eat one chicken breast, then decide the other chicken breast looks lonely in the packet and eat that too--then decide that actually, it wouldn't hurt if I ate that cottage cheese as well... And boom, catastrophe, I'm troughing my way through the contents of the fridge. It doesn't help, I guess, that I'm currently in the middle of exam revision :(

Anyway, I've decided to go back to first principles. My water drinking habits have been less than great just lately so I'm going to try and up the amounts again. And today, I have promised myself that nothing other than my CD shakes, water and black coffee is going anywhere near my mouth!

One day at a time, right? I'm off on holiday to Cornwall on 30 May--that ought to be enough to get me motivated in itself. It'd be fantastic to have lost another stone by then. It's five weeks away today--I should be able to do it, shouldn't I? :)
