    Hi Guys,

    I started Cambridge in Feb and lost 2stone and 10lbs in 2 months which I was soooo happy about but for one reason or another I went back to my piggy old ways and ended up gaining half a stone in the last few weeks. I know I have still lost 2 stone but I just couldnt get back on track with CD and after cross words with my CDC (that I cant go into) I ended up admitting defeat that I couldnt live without eating normal food.

    I decided to start slimming world and I hopped on the scales this morning after 3 days and had lost NOTHING... NADA... ABSOLUTELY ZILCH!!
    It reminded me that when I was on cambridge almost every day I would see a pound dropping and the feeling was brilliant.

    I am now thinking of returning to Cambridge with my tail between my legs, I will need to see a new counsellor that I have found but I have 8 stone to lose and I am going to try my hardest to get it off my christmas. I have the willpower of a pea, can I do this? Am I doing the right thing??

    Any advice is much welcomed!!!
    Thanks guys

    ........ nevermind!

    I did EXACTLY the same thing myself, lost 2.5 st with LL then put the whole lot back on!!!!! What an idiot! I never did maintenance (big big mistake) this time its different, harder to SS BUT now I'm back on it all fine & dandy!

    You are soooooooo not alone - dont beat yourself up anymore. Past is past, future's all in front of you! I've got about 3st to lose & I will this time and I'll do maintenance & follow steps so that I dont have to SS again!

    Best of luck xxx

    I agree, you're so not alone in this! I've lost and regained so many times but now I've found a CDC that I am really comfortable with and the weight is coming off. OK I still have bad days occasionally but as she told me last week - you are only human!

    Take each day as it comes and if you have a bad day then just chalk it down to experience and draw a line under it. Start afresh the next day :)

    Take care and good luck :)

    If you liked CD and have a new more supportive CDC you can do it - we'll help!!! BUT it is harder 2nd time around.

    If you prefer eating food and think SW will work for you - albeit slower .... then stick to that. It's about finding a diet/plan that works for you.

    Whatever you decide we'll be here for you - good luck!

    Hi Verity
    well done - you have recognised that you need to address your weight & you have faced up to it!
    we are all on here because we cannot do it alone - we lose the weight - we lose our focus - we lose our minds worrying about it - we gain - we maintain - in fact I have done all of the above and I bet 75% of minimins members have too!
    Come on here and pour your heart out and we will support and encourage each other!
    Best of luck with the new counsellor / SW
