    Stop fighting it Em - you need to approach it positively or its going to be an uphill slog... Enjoy the freedom, enjoy the packs, enjoy the break from food xxxx

    just keep going until you are weighed. That will be the big motivation you need. Dig deep and do as time4me says :)

    thanks girls, its kinda hard especially cooking the kids dinners ( i have 3 kids-1 being a toddler) so food is nearly always around, just fancy a nice warm "normal" dinner..
    Maybe when ketosis kicks in i will be a little more positive... i peed on the stick this morning and it was a light pinkish colour... So not sure what that means..

    Generally need a kick up the butt, i was looking foward to starting this diet and day one was ok....

    Im sorry for all the moaning ive done,

    Emm, i am sure you have been on loys of diets, make this be your last one, just relax, drink room temperature water, if the water is too cold it can make you feel cold. get through your first week. i am now in my second week, and in my first week i lost 9.5lbs, hope this encourages you. you can do it love highheels xx

    Not necessarily hun - first couple of days are difficult, I was bloody knackered and freezing. Trust me this does pass... I dont feel at all nasty now and I'm coming up to 8 weeks - feel better than I have for a long long time xxxxxxxxx

    Day4-7 were the worst for me - really struggled. Have to say my 2nd week were just as tough but only cos my social life was suffering and I need to prioritise CD vs social life. But things will get better Emm - just hold on in there!

    You would probably be spending more at the shops than you do on the diet in different ways. Apart from the food you buy for nutrition, what do you buy that makes you put on weight. I used to buy bags of sweets etc etc. You dont notice spending money on other things but you do notice the money you set aside for the diet. Think that one through as it will help you to redress the balance. The first week in particular is very difficult as you approach the whole concept in your head. You are around your children and their diets of course. Prepare their food, serve it up and distract yourself whilst they are eating it ..... do the clearing away, the washing up, just anything that stops you sitting down right beside them - unless of course you are physically feeding them. Tell yourself you are not the bin for the left overs; you are not the recycling bin; you want to become more fit and alert so you can enjoy the family even more. If you do sit with them - sit with a glass of water besides you - even a straw to encourage you to sip more. You have to be determined to see it through the first week and then thereafter it does get easier and easier. What you have to really work hard on is your self worth and putting yourself up as a contender to the honour board in your family. I am worth it, I am doing this for me, I need this more than I need the comfort from picking or choosing my preferred foods, the more valuable you become to yourself - the more able you will be to give the best to your children, husband, friends etc. Part of the process in controlling your weight is to come to love yourself, the real you, not the mother, wife, housewife, friend, taxi driver etc.etc. As wife, mother, etc etc you are spreading yourself thinly on the ground and when you feel the burden of that are probably taking comfort from food. Now is the time to change all of that for the good and SELF ESTEEM is right up there at the top of the leader board. Dont keep chipping away at it, and letting others do the same to you. Be your own best friend and all the others around you will want to join in and share your pleasures. You have to love yourself before others can truly love you.
    I hope this all makes some sense to you. Its taken me years to come to this myself. Give everyone some special time, BUT THAT INCLUDES YOU.

    Hehe - sorry, but your subject line made me chuckle, as it's so true!! From a personal viewpoint, I think that the first ten days or so feel like months, as you're so aware of the fact that you're not eating. However, I promise that this then changes, and eventually the time just flies by, and Cambridge becomes just part of your routine. :)
