I've just written this in my diary, and thought I'd post it here too...

Well it's day..... erm (gets caluculator) 55 today, and I've had a really rubbish weekend. Friday in the day was fine, met up with another minis Cder in the day and it was lovely. In the eveing it was as if I'd had a personality transplant, I was craving food A LOT. We went shopping and I almost bought some chicken, put it in the trolley, got to the checkout, but then had a moment of clarity and put the chicken back. I then got home and decided that I did want to eat the chicken after all. However, the chicken was still sitting on the shelf at tesco. So, what did I do? Well You'd have thought I would have had some tuna wouldn't you? Well you'd have thought wrong. I had some (rather delicious) kettle chips instead. I had about half the size of a normal packet of crisps. I also had about 15 baby plum tomatoes with these crisps. So I ate all that, in the evening, felt really fooked off with myself as I went to bed, and vowed to learn from this.

Saturday was fine, I tested for Ketosis and by some miracle I was still in ketosis, although I felt that I didn't deserve to be. I SSed 100% all day sat, the thought of food passing my lips didn't even enter my brain. I thought I'd learnt my lesson.

I thought wrong.

Sunday I had more kettle chips. About twice the amount I had on friday. I realised I was having a big crisis of confidence with the diet. I know I will be doing CD SS for at least another 7 weeks, and I was having a major wobble (just like my stomach and thighs really!). The thought of abstaining from food for that much longer was really horrible, especially as over the summer its all BBQs and evenings out in country pubs etc. This has really been playing on my mind for the last week or so, whereas up until that point I'd been doing really well!

So yesterday evening I had to put an end to my eating craving, so thought about the best thing I could have, so i had some tuna with baby plum tomatoes and spring onions. And I didn't enjoy it at all, however it has really made think that I just need to get my head down and get on with CD. What is 7 weeks? It's nothing. I started CD so that I could start fertility treatment and have a baby, what better reason is there than that?

I checked for ketosis, and once again, I'm still in ketosis, I've no idea how I am, I guess I'm just really really lucky. I just hope I've learnt from my mistakes. Food will be there when I finish CD, I just need to remember this.

Thanks CW. I'd toyed with the idea of doing SS+, but I need to remove food from the equation altogether, I'm not strong enough to re-introduce food properly yet, I'm really worried about when the time comes though.....

Ruth, hon dont worry about it for when the time comes!!
I was the same so worried about it but once I did my weeks break I have never looked back.....
I did feel I needed to take food out of the equation at the beginning too but I never wanted it.. but if you are wanting it then its just a shame to ruin it with other things, when you could be having the healthy option if that makes some kind of sense..
Hang in there hon your doing fab.. x

Morning Ruth. Sorry to hear your struggled this weekend. It is hard at times isn't it. I agree with Curly, why don't you try SS+ if you are craving food. At least then it is planned and within your control.

We have an appt at the IVF clinic tomorrow morning - this is 18 long months after being turned away and told to loose weight. I know that I am under the BMI level required for treatment but I am bricking it that we will get there and I won't be considered, whilst I really want to be bouncing for joy at finally getting there. I know how hard this is!!

You are doing really, really well and it isn't forever, honest, and the benefits are well worth it and outweigh the short term fix!

Just focus on your goal of 25 August, avoid the BBQs and the temptations (remove the crisps etc from the house!)

Get back on the SS (or SS+) train, knowing that you have passed the bumpy part, and fly through to your apt in August.

Sorry for the ramble...

Good luck x

I'm hoping that this weekend has got it out of my system, I really just need to focus on losing at least 16 lbs before going back to my fertiltiy specialists, the more I can lose the better it will be for me and the baby/babies. I can do it, my weight loss in the last 8 weeks is testament to that, I just think my brain is having a meltdown, as I'm not getting 'the highs' that I was getting with the initial losses. I've got my AAMW in 3 weeks, so I know I need to plan now so that I'm ready for it when it gets here.

CW - you are going to be a fab CDC!

Thanks wales! We honestly don't have things like crisps in the house, MrG is completley the opposite to me, he is really really healthy and fit, and we bought the kettle chips as he was going to have them. The funny thing is I don't 'do' crisps, I really don't like savoury snacks. I think it was just a bizzare carb craving. I'm usually really really good, at work they get takeaway a lot, and I've never even been close to craving once, I just don't know what got into me at the weekend!
