Anyone lose concentration on other things

Hi there,
Since I have been on this diet it seems to be the most important thing in my life.
Sometimes I cannot concentrate at work because I am thinking about my weight loss or thinkin about what I am going to do when I am thinner?
Am I going mad?
This is a massive step in my life so I need it to be important and if i don't think about then then I am afraid I will fall off the wagon. But I seem to eat and breath cambridge at the minute. Anyone else?

Hi Peachy

I am exactly the same as you. Cant seem to concentrate on anything at the mo. I am only on day 5, and so far so good (not cheated once) but I am obsessed with food and this website!!
You are not going mad. Infact if you are constantly thinking about your diet I think thats a positive thing. you have already done so well - 2 stone in 6 weeks and you should be rightly proud of yourself.
keep up the good work.

Hi both,

I'm on Day 10 and it has even infiltrated my dreams :eek:.

In a dream a couple of nights ago I started eating a sandwich. 3 mouthfuls in I remembered I'm on CD and not allowed to eat. I spat it out and then checked the pack and calculated the calories (just over 100) and carbs (15g) I had consumed :eek: !! Couldn't believe I'd done all that asleep ......

So I can't even dream about eating - but at least I can have the bars soon, something to chew on :)
That's absolutely normal. In fact I did CD more than 4 months and initially i used to think about it so much. with time the thinking reduced but not fully faded away. But the best thing is now I am slimmer and everybody around me think and talk about it more than me :)
Sorry....what were you saying?


Yes - I'm guilty too of becoming totally tonto whilst SSing - nothing else seems to matter. It's all about me, me, me, baby! lol

I can't tell the difference - I'm a dizzy blonde to start with!! :crazy: I have noticed a lack of interest in everything except Minimins and MSN tho ..... hhmmmm I think I've got the CD bug!!!:giggle:
