    Hello everyone, sorry but i'm back in that place again. Ever since my low week where i felt really low and couldn't stop bingeing on crisps and chocolate i thought i would be back on track. I was full of motivation after weigh in last wed even though i put on a pound and a half. I was in a place where i thought 'yeah i can do this'. However ever since thurs/fri i have been good all during the days, then binging at night on take aways , chocolate, crisps and jelly sweets. Back to feeling fat and disgusting but i just can't stop bingeing on food.

    All the old thoughts about slimming pills etc are going round in my head.

    I don't know what to do. i really don't want to go and get weighed on wed as i don't want to have gained 2 weeks in a row.

    It is such a vicious circle with me, i go a couple of days being ok, the most days after that binging, then feeling like i do.

    I really don't know what to do, and i thank everyone for advice every time i get like this , then get all motivated, then it happens again.

    I also feel like such a fraud giving out good advice, i can give it out but can't stick to it myself.

    Once again, sooo sorry for the 'woe is me thread' but it is the only place i can really get it all off my chest.

    is there anything you can take for cravings for chocolate?:cry::cry::cry::cry:

    Awww hun, don't worry I know 100% how you feel.

    As for the chocolate.... (don't laugh)... Marc had an Aero yesterday and I sniffed it, it honestly took my craving away. Try it but make sure someone is there to take it off you incase it doesn't work. Hehe.

    Losing weight is hard hun, but you know you can do this, go back to WI, tail between legs and think that the journey starts here. x

    Try not to beat yourself up. Try and take one day at a time and each day when you feel your cravings coming on try to say 'no' for half an hour. After half an hour if you're still craving then decide if you're going to give into it or not. Chances are you'll have forgotten it by then! As for chocolate, why not try the Trident choc mint gum? It's actually quite nice and only 1/2 syn per pellet - it might help with the cravings.

    Don't beat yourself up - we all go through this at one point or another.

    I have heard that Chromium can help you get your sugar balance back and therefore help with cravings, but I am not a nutritionist or doctor so can't really say that with any certainty.

    That's funny about sniffing the chocolate (see Louise's post). The girl that sits next to me at work got a big box of Milk Tray for her birthday and she kept trying to get me to have a piece or two, despite my insisting I didn't want one. Eventually she allowed me my abstinence but asked me to pass the box to the woman who sits on the other side of me. And as I was doing it, I took a deep sniff of the box and instantly felt as though I had eaten it. I even had a flash of recall of what it felt like to bite through dairy milk chocolate, etc. And that was all I needed. I didn't feel deprived at all! Weird!

    i don't know if you've tried any of the options or hi-lights hot chocolate drink things. I usually hit those if i have a chocolate craving. You would need to check out the syn values but i'm sure that they are only around 2-3 syns when made up as directed.
    those things are so sickly sweet that they usually vanish my cravings for a some time

    Hi Betty,

    Im sorry to hear that you are struggling at the moment. You can come out the other side though, but dont beat yourself up over it!
    I usually find that I crave chocolate during the TOTM, but instead increase my number of Green Days...if you eat more pasta and potatoes and bananas, you are giving back to your body the energy that it needs, without caving in. I got this advice from a GP and for me it works.

    I'm not really in the place to advise since I have posted my own woeful message this week...but....do some cooking. That made me feel more positive, like I could eat well even if I got home from work too knackered to do anything but collapse. I also heartily recommend skinny cow ice cream/lollies. They're about four syns, and are delicious and feel risiculously indulgent. I would have one a night if I could, but they're quite expensive (about £2 for three). But G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S!!!
