    Hi Guys,

    After losing a large amount on CD last year, I have toyed on and off with it since jan, I am now 2 stone heavier than my lightest weight - but still MASSIVELY lighter than when I began CD - but now the time has come for me to try a different approach.

    I have done SW many moons ago - but found it hard to last more than 6-12 weeks - I think this was more down to the fact I had a lot of weight to shift and was too impatient (prob why CD did work!) BUT now I really want to address my (still) very un healthy eating habits and hopefully shift the 2 stone I have gained (maybe shift an additional 14-21lbs as well!)

    I am going to my class tomorrow at 7pm for official weigh in but have got the new book (from last time in jan!!) so have started today - will update and let you know how I am doing...

    STW xx

    hi i also have started back with sw after doing this and cd back and forth, i started today properly and have been 100%
    started with my weetabix, then had a ham salad for dinner and made a turkey mince meatloaf for tea and had that with salad too.
    now having some banana's with fromage frais its great with some splenda in, just like a plain yougart then.

    hey dq,

    brekkie was loverly.. but lunch was really good too - chopped up crabsticks, cucumber and tomato, plenty of vinegar - all in one bowl - was delish!!

    DQ - u used to do cd? How have you found the mental side of this diet, ie the "slower" losses? Did it take you a while to adapt - or have you started this with a competley different mindset?

    Unfortunately I had no choice but to stop doing CD - I hurt my back, and am on a range of tablets that mean my Dr said I had to come off of CD.

    I was very upset originally, but am determined to put 110% into SW and do the best I can. If I can lose weight then great, but maintaining even at the size that I am is an achievement.

    So I guess the small losses don't get me (too) down :rolleyes: because it's simply nice to see the scales going down again after such a traumatic year.

    I actually lost 45 lbs doing CD earlier in the year, then did my back in and started suffering from water retention, etc. :cry:

    Sorry for long-winded post - basically, promised myself that doing something is better than doing nothing and I'll take what I can get!! :p

    Hi,

    Good for you DQ, hopefully we help encourage each other - are you enjoying SW? Do you intend to bounce back to CD if and when you are off the tablets, I am SO hoping that I will be patient as I really feel that SW will help address my eating issues.

    Have a good day

    I am enjoying doing SW but am keeping my options open. I have been reading about the unit diet a lot lately. It looks like my back is a long-term thing so going back to CD may not be an option :(

    Thanks Stilltoowide, I keep reminding myself I am in this for the long haul, and if CD is not an option then I will just have to try another way. :thankyou:
