    Hello all, Everything has been going great but today ended with a rough hour and I think it might help if I write it down. It might also help with the automatic thought processing that we have just started learning about in class.
    I have reduced my weight by 2 stone since starting LL about 5 weeks ago, felt very happy, healthy and in control. I have exams going on and my dad hasn't been well necessitating a fair ammount of extra travel for me but I have felt fine.
    I noticed particularly last weekend that I was cross with people (directly) which is a bit out of character for me. The only 'down side' that I have experienced with LL (and I'm not sure it is a downside) is that I do get tired in the evenings but, because I haven't been drinking alcohol, I have been offering lifts home to friends as often as possible. Twice this weekend, for different reason, I felt my mates were taking advantage a bit and I got cross with them because they had had a drink or 5 too many. I would have been like them 6 weeks ago but, especially as I was tired, I couldn't help being annoyed with what I saw as their ingratitude and indecision. Anyway, I thought it was a storm in a tea cup but one of them took a pop at me about it today and really caught me off guard - saying she couldn't say anything more to me as it might cause a full break down in our friendship. I guess I'm worried that my new confidence might be a bit over the top, that I'm not managing my tiredness properly, that I will change too much and possibly need to change some friends as a result of this, that it might not work or that a mean streak in me will be exposed. To be honest if it was one incident, I could probably explain it away, but I also pointed something out to a colleague and she flet undermined, and another colleague seemed to appear rude to me as well. Is it a full moon? Is it everyone else? Is there hope for me?

    Hi Cat

    I had a let go on two close friends, suddenly I found that my weight loss was a huge problem to them. It was not easy but it needed to be done and in fairness it was another weight I lost.
    Its not easy but maybe you should make it very clear to your friends were your boundaries are.
    You are doing an amazing thing for yourself and you should be supported.

    I guess the only advise you can give them is to tell them how you feel and listen to how they see it. That way you know where you are.
    Good luck, and well done on your weight loss awesome achievement so far.
