    I am sitting at work tonight (god knows why i chose a shift swap, was working 10am-6pm and chose to swap to 6pm til 11pm... i know it means i get paid for 8 hours and only work 5 hours but i am now soooo tired!!!)

    was at the football yesterday so still feel like i am recovering... so tired, my head is really sore and i am feeling sick, is that a migraine???

    anyway, contemplating my re-start tomorrow morning... have still been having the odd shakes or bars but have been eating too... i haven't gained but need to stop eating and get focussed...

    my main fear is i won't be able to succeed with my restart... i always said that this diet would be the making of me but the fear of failure is so great cos i feel like a failure with my struggles since the planned break from the diet in July...

    where do i go from here guys??? some words of wisdom are needed xxx

    Hiya hun, remember this diet is 99% in your mind so do not allow yourself to consider failure, by considering it you are almost anticipating it if you see what I mean. Don't underestimate the power of positive mental attitude, believe you will succeed!

    Hi - I remember reading your posts when I was lurking unsure as to whether to start CD at all. You are one of the people that convinced me it was a good idea. I am now in week 4 and so far lost 18lb.
    It makes me sad to hear that you feel like it won't work for you now! You are exactly half way there, so perhaps it was just half time break! So, what I am saying is stop thinking negative thoughts and just get back on track. You know you can do it - so do it!
    I will look out for your post tomorrow saying what a good CD day you have had!!
    Take care
    Deb

    Go for it Sara! Like Georgie has said, believe in your ability to succeed and you will!! If you start to doubt yourself you are just setting yourself up to give in. You have already done SOOOO well - before you know it the time will have flown by and you'll be at goal.

    Good luck hun
    Love Kjxxx

    Hope u r doing ok so far! U know u can do this, dont you! Consider this, you have only failed if you stop trying!!

    I did stop trying and I have regained a several stones (not STS like you, WELL DONE!!) but, I have contacted my CDC & I am due to be back on the wagon very soon, once packs are sorted etc.

    Keep your eyes on the prize, and you cannot help but WIN!!!!
