So, back on CD and 9.5lbs to go. I found reading the boards that there are a few classic patterns and having gone through the ones that I never thought would happen to me, I wondered how typical they were?
- Day three is a pig. Your brain chemistry changes, it feels awful. There is nothing that can be done but ride it out.
- After the 1 stone, you want to have a break. That's you're 'are you ready to lose the weight and move on mental test'.
- Towards the end you want to stop and have a break, people tell you how good you look, normal clothes fit, why keep fighting? I guess because you're winning battles, but the war isn't won to reclaim yourself from the fatlands.
- I haven't got to this, but not doing the maintenance the way CD seems to be a problem. Your glycogen pings on fast, you think OMG it's true it comes back on faster on CD than other diets. And eventually all the weight comes back on. As far as I can tell, CD takes you up so that you are actually still losing as the glycogen replenishes and you come out of it into full maintenance still at goal weight.
