    :cry:I am just not coping on this at all any more.....I have all sorts of worries going on at the mo and can't even stick to this for a day without bingeing and ruining it all.....I can't really even afford to do it at the mo and that is making me feel guilty...I feel like I am losing control of everything and I am so unhappy with my weight....I have an occasion to go to in september with my beautiful mate who lost 5 stone so so easily last year doing it the proper way diet and exercise and has kept it off and I just didn't want to be the fat frump again this year....I know that I don't have the time now to lose what I wanted for the event and just feel so crap.

    Hey Lou,

    You might not lose 5 stone by September, but you could make a big dent in it and boost your self esteem. You sound quite low at the moment and are beating self up for failed attempts. Please don't, it doesn't help. Perhaps CD just isn't the right way for you at the moment, or you haven't got your head in the right place?

    You mentioned that you can't afford it right now. I know it seems a lot to hand over at times, but when I've totted what I spend on a supermarket or meals out or takeaways when I'm not SS'ing, it's amazing how much more it totals.

    If you really want to SS to make that difference by Sept, try a week of preparation where you get your head around the diet, know what to expect and lower the carb intake so that you food withdrawals aren't so bad when you start SS'ing.

    If you can consider what you really want though, because to do SS, you've got to really really want this. you sound like you do, you just need to really focus.

    There are some great motivation stories on here..if I lose focus, I try and remotivate myself by seeing that yes it can be done, it has been done and there is no reason why it can't happen for me.

    Good Luck hun xxx

    Hi hun I so know where you are coming from. I have just woke up to find a for sale sign up, I knew it was coming but not until next week, or so I thought.
    Well I stood there and cried, still snivelling now, my first thought was food. But I am not going to let my ex destroy my weight loss too.

    I also feel like crap to so we can be good but crappy together. xxx

    Thanx Paula, I think most of us are probably comfort eaters so its times like this that you feel like giving in.

    Lou if you wanna chat feel free to pm me. I have been seperated since 23rd april......loving the freedom but not all the hassles ex has thrown my way. I would do anything to stay put.

    Hope you feel a lighter brighter !!

    Hey sweet, I know exactly what you're saying both money wise and being the "fat friend" wise.

    It really is hard. But you can take control and over-come this blip. If you can afford it, please try and do CD you will feel so much happier. September is 2 months away right? I've been doing CD for just under 2 months and have lost 34lbs, YOU can do this too! I also had a week off in that time so if I was to have stuck to it 100% I may have lost more. Good luck, try and keep your hopes up xxxx
