    In 2nd week of CD, thought I felt fine enough to go to the pub with OH, oh dear! Everything was going well with my large glass of carbonated water and loads of ice until I saw my reflection in the mirror behind the bar. My initial reaction was 'jeeeeeeeeez I look huuuuuge', then I sat back and realised all those times I'd been to the pub, mingled with everyone, even got up and sung karaoke......at a stone heavier.....what on earth must I have looked like then?! Then I promptly burst into tears much to my poor OH's dismay. If I'm honest, before starting CD I think I was in total denial about just how big I was, and now I know EXACTLY how heavy I really am it's brought it all home. Is it normal to feel so up and down emotionally? Or am I just turning into a total nutcase??? I'm lying in bed typing this while my OH is downstairs trying to stay out of my way, or maybe he's mad at me for ruining our evening, I'm not sure. :sigh::sigh:

    Oh hun, Sorry to hear that you're feeling so down. You're doing so well on losing weight which tells me you've got a good grasp on mind over matter. You've not been in denial you've just not felt so emotional about it, and you're probably a little low on things and this affects your mood. You're just gonna have to ride it out and just remind yourself you don't feel anything negative about the way you look because you're doing something positive about it. Don't be alone, and I'm sure he's not mad he's doing what all smart men do when woman burst out crying, move swiftly out the way. Nothing helps lift the mood like a good cuddle!

    I hope this makes sense...

    Hi,

    Feeling emotional when changing your eating habits is completely normal! The way we eat and the foods we choose are often linked to our emotions. I think being a tall woman makes it harder to see how big you are. Since sticking to my diet I feel bigger than ever when standing next to slim people:confused:

    Hope you feel better soon!

    Thankyou so much for your kind words......I ordered a new, very expensive suede jacket from my catalogue (in a size smaller) to try and encourage me to stick to the diet......and guess what, it fits!!!! In fact it was quite loose. I feel much more focused today and that really topped it off!! xxxx

    I never saw pictures of me on my biggest until I'd reached goal. Not sure why. When I saw them I cried, too. I can really imagine what you're feeling as I was very emotional during the diet too. :)

    It will pass and while the pounds drop off you'll start to feel better about yourself..
