    How things can change in the space of a few hours. This morning I was on a high after losing 10lbs at first weigh in and now I feel terrible.

    To cut a long story short, I ended up being punched in the face (jaw) today and it's hurting like mad. Because it's obviously quite an emotional thing, I just want to eat to make self feel better (the fact I can't chew is probably only thing stopping me to be honest). I need some support if anyone is out there at the min

    Thanks x

    omg nicola, that is absolutely awful.
    i hope this isnt still the bigots u were having problems with regarding the crash diet programme.
    ya know what, u can give in to this and eat and then later on tonight feel the full force of regretting that u allowed them to drive u to giving in.... or u can take a bath, do some pampering and look back on the day at the end of the night with well deserved pride that u fought and succeeded and that u r stronger than their will to destroy u.
    ((((((hugs)))))) hope u feel better soon.

    Thanks cheryl - no nothing to do with the program thankfully - personal life gone wrong :(

    All I can think about is having some chocolate (letting it melt so obviously can't chew) but you are right, if I give in I am letting him win and I can't have that - just so difficult right now :cry: x

    u have to ask urself.... will i feel better 15 minutes after i eat? if not, then its not worth it.
    i usually say to myself 'ok, i will go and have a shower, get in my pj's and paint my nails. then if i still feel like i REALLY need to eat after an hour, i will allow myself to.
    so far i have always managed to distract myself long enough for the urge to lessen in severity.
    we r here if u need to offload. dont forget that. :)

    thanks so much - think i'm going to go for a shower and go to a friends - hope that will distract me enough. Only prob is I can't tell them what has happened and with not really being able to open mouth - it might cause questions - ah well will deal with that one if it happens.

    Thanks for the encouragement cheryl - just what I needed!!

    hun why can't you tell them what happened they are your friends they r there to support you. they are gonna ask and no aren't telling them the truth.
    i know things are probably complicated but you can't let him get away with it. no man should ever hit a woman. if it was one of your friends what would you advice they do?

    Think I'm just ashamed - never happened to me before & don't quite know how to react. Plus it friends b'day so don't wanna ruin it for this when it will keep for another day (if that makes sense).

    Hey guys thanks so much for messages!! Am aching like I've worked out for 10 hours today lol!! Got quite a few bruises but jaw is a lot better (as in I can open and close - still can't chew which is good thing - humours my way of coping with things if u haven't noticed!!). Still haven't cried about it and I know I should have as I normally cry at seeing an advert on tv nevermind anything meaningful :) I've stuck to diet today though - but am strangely really really hungry (stomach rumbling kind) and have had my products. Am off to a BBQ now but know I'll be fine there

    Thanks again everyone for messages they really got me through last night x
