I am doing lighterlife atm, til the 18th when i start with cd, but i am finding this harder as the days go by.I really am missing my food, i feel i need to do the 3 food packs and and the meal to keep me sane.My friend who is on cd has just given it up and she was my sole support, so i guess im kinda disappointed really, and i feel i cant go and post on lighterlife forum now as im not on that.

Hi Lynn, I am sure you can post on the LL forum - I still post on W8 even though I am doing a little of that a mostly WW now.

I think that on CD you can add food - and I think its worth doing (personally - I know others who think abstinence is the only thing that works for them). On W8 we could add a meal and I felt it kept me sane.

Horses for courses I reckon.

You will still get loads of support on here even if your friend has packed it in

hey there hon. we're all here to listen if you need to rant so go right ahead!! why not try ss+ or the 810 plan if you don't want to give up a small meal each day? you don't have to just survive on the packs if you don't want to...

and although your friend has given up, it doesn't mean that you have to. we're all here to support you as and when you need it.

stick at it hon. you've done so so well so far. you can continue to have brilliant results with cd :D

Thankyou everyone. I am trying to get an appointment with cdc for this week rather than wait 2 weeks, to help me stay motivated, i will stay in abstinence til week 13 then go on to the meal plan. I just think i need a bit of variety to keep me going til then.I still have 4 to 5 stone to lose, and dont want to lose it too slowly.Its hard seeing my husband who has lost 4st and im no where near yet.As much as im soo proud of him. It is upsetting me. I feel a bit better as i have not fallen of the horse today.So thats something tomorrow is a new day and ill carry on going and hopefully be a bit more stronger.
I was upset because my friend has left cd but i realise she was struggling alot more than me and after her 2 weeks of abstinece she was not sticking to it. I was being strong for her and not for myself, taken on too much. But so far has been a good day i realised about 30 minutes ago that i have nearly completed a day with out cheating..phew.


is gonna do it!!

Come on Lynn, stick with it girl!! you can do it.
Just keep motivated, Its sooo hard this diet but the results are amazing. Just think of your little bod when your at goal and all the nice clothes you'll be wearing next summer, thats whats keeping me going. I know its hard, but its so worth it. I was gagging for a roast dinner today, my oh is dieting too and he kept talking about roast dinner and I was salarvating, but drunk water instead, if I can do it, any one can XX

Thats the spirit babes!!
My first meal is gonna be roast turkey on christmas day, Im even gonna take a pic of it, worship it, everything!
So looking forward to it!
But I AM going to wait until xmas till I eat, then, straight back on SS until Im at goal.
Feeling motivated and strong I so want to do this this time and not be a failiure again. I dont want to get to 50 years old and look back at my life and think what an idiot Ive been in my youth for not being happy with myself because of my weight. I wish I had done this ages ago. But, better late than never!!
Good luck for Tuesday darl XX
