    Well, I have re-started CD 4 times including this time.

    Ive always managed to get down to 14 1, then i have always self sabotaged and eaten then given up on CD.

    I decided if I could just try to get past 14 1, then maybe I could break the circle and I would feel so good that I wouldn't self sabotage.

    well, Ive done it!!! weighed in at 13 13
    this morning and havent got to this weight as far as I can remember for a few years.so I'm very very very happy!!!!
    In my eyes, I know its 13 13, but i started at 15 8 so ive gone down 2 number lol
    :D :D :D :D :D

    Hey - well done to you.:D
    I am exactly the same, lost loads in 2003 with LL, several personal life changes later I am back on CD with a couple stone gained, but really struggling with 2lb to get under another stone barrier - as soon as I get near I eat !!! What is wrong with me ??? Think i need to be locked in a room for a week with just my 21 packets so I can break through the barrier. The craziest thing is - I know that once I get past this stone range I will be able to carry on just fine !!!!
    Crazy !!!:sigh:

    Together we lost 8 stone on CD.
    Congrats on getting to the 13's Tracie. :D That sounds like a landmark you had to work really hard to get through.:rolleyes: Hope it plain sailing for a while now so that the 14's are gone for good and a distant memory.

    Have a good Weekend and NO EATING!;)

    reading your post gave mea warm feeling on a frosty morning. well done on breaking the 14st barrier.
    I'm going to coin a new phrase for this phenomenon which seems to be fairly common. mine isn't a set weight but kicks in at about 15kg weight lost (= 3 1/2 st)
    I'm calling it the Glass Floor syndrome.

    Sounds poncy I know but if it exists then name it I say .

    Any boby out there got this too? in fact I think I'll starta thred on it.
    PS-do you think you deserve to tret yourself for breaking this?

    Thanks sooooooo much for all the comments!

    I really feel very positive at the moment.

    yes, my next goal is 13 0 as I can remember when I was 13 1 and at that weight and that time during my life is associated with alot of bad stuff so im going to get past 13 1 next!.

    Tracie xx
