    yes at work its easier to avoid temptation for some reason, but home is more difficult, especially if you are the one preparing food.

    The only thing is to try and keep busy and focus on something else once you get into ketosis it is easier to manage. Keep telling yourself that if you are tempted. If you absolutely have to eat dont have carbs kababs are out have some chicken or salad instead :)

    Moving to SS+ and having a small protein meal in the evenings for a week or so till you get into ketosis might be worth considering?

    I sometimes feel like i want to eat when i am home in the evening, mainly because i have nothing to day and i get bored. I usually try to have an early night if i'm craving food or have a nice bubble bath to stay away from the kitchen, lol.

    Have you thought about doing SS+. A little meal to look forward to in the eveinings might make things easier.

    I hope today goes well for you :) xx

    I fail everything, and i am now on day 8, had my weigh in today, and believe me its all worth it, the headache, the dizzyness, the nightmares, oh god i have had them all, and now in ketosis, and now my cravings have gone, i am not hungry at all, i have to try and remember to eat, so hun, its hard, it really is the ultimate hardest diet i have ever done, but in 3 weeks i have lost almost a stone, how many other diets can give you them results, i am on the SS+ if you are eating food, then you must also be on the same, otherwise it just be drinks. Keep motivated, its all worth it i can promise you that hun!

    i find the day harder because it seems to drag as i am on my own. in the evenings i just sit and watch all the soaps and then a film or something, by that time it's bedtime and another day has passed :D

    just remain positive skinnylala, you'll do it :eek:

    Hi Skinny la. I know what you mean about wanting to SS to get as much off as poss but if you look at the other threads (and the CD booklet) people lose approx the same amount whether the SS or SS+. so it would propably be worthwhile doing SS+ if it keeps you on track. you'll still lose a stone a month.

    Hiya. I am on my 16th day of SS and believe me the first few days were absolute hell!! once you get through them and get into ketosis its sooooo much easier just take each day as a mini goal. nice hot baths and early nights will help hun. My first week i decorated the bathroom and this kept my mind right of the hunger believe me its worth the first few days xxxxxxx

    Hi Skinnylala, the first week is really hard, but if you can just get through it, you'll be ok. Just focus on getting to your first weigh and after that, it'll be a lot easier. You started CD for a reason, so just focus on those reasons for losing weight and any time you feel like you are going to eat something, come on here and we'll distract you xx
