    When will they go away!
    i am really, really struggling today. I know i will stay 100% SS but the fights going on in my head are literally 'doing my head in'?

    Do they go or do i need to get used to them somehow?

    Help me please?

    Hi Tam - in my, limited experience, they come and go I am afraid. I am only in my 4th week and to be honest didn't really get cravings until last week but like you I am 100% committed to staying on track.

    As everyone on here says - distraction is key. Bath, book, walk, phone someone, etc - it is the reason all my ironing is up to date. I mean the bedding I washed this morning has been dried and ironed and put away - I must be in real need of distraction to iron a blooming king size duvet cover (both sides)!

    I would be interested from those who are further down the diet to see if cravings do dissapear though!

    You sound focussed on staying on the diet and you have already seen great results. Stay strong and you will get through them x

    I sorry to say that my food cravings are still here 13 weeks on but i must say my will power is stronger that my cravings, thank goodness, i went in a chippy today it was torture but the feeling of buying food for others then watching them eat and not having any makes me so proud of myself, it can be done, its hard but well worth the struggle.

    I agree with Lin, my cravings still come and go too, i'm on week 9 now.. Personally i don't think they get any easier mentally wise i still beat myself up however it does get easier to say no and mean no. It kind of becomes habit in a way if you get what i mean. Whenever anyone in work offers to get a takeaway in it just becomes automatic to say no straight away. It's then hard as they sit there n eat it in front of me but then i feel really pleased with myself and strong when i've resisted again :) x
