The hour by hour threads have helped me get back on the 810 wagon over the last couple of days, so hoping Friday can be the same... if you're wobbling, have fallen off the wagon, want to climb back on or are just looking for some encouragement to stay there, join in.

When we think we're on our own, that's when the going gets tough - when we work together, it's not such a struggle. Anyone - on any plan - want to go for a no-cheat day? One day at a time, one hour at a time if need be!

Hiya Katycakes! *waves like a loon*
Well after a very difficult and down day yesterday i've decided that i'm just not in the right place for ss just now so am going to go on the 810. I know that if i can have that small meal in the evening i'll get through the day better and the evening won't be anywhere near as difficult. I know the losses won't be as big as on ss but at least it'll be a step in the right direction - and then when i'm feeling a bit more......well, me then i'll give ss a try again.
I'm going to dig my cambridge booklets out later and remind myself exactly what the 810 involves but am feeling more positive already now that i've decided to switch.

Good luck for a 100% day everyone. *hugs*

Go for it Rayven. I love your attitude... this girl is NOT going to be defeated!!! 810 is great and if you follow it properly the losses are good... just don't wander off track like I did!

After two days back on by-the-book 810 I can already see the scales sneaking downwards, yay!!! Anyway, hope that a change of plan is what you need to get motivated and focused again... you can do it honey!

Well i promised myself that this is the year i get to goal and come hell or high water that is EXACTLY what i intend to do. I'm wearing clothes today that i couldn't even get on at the beginning of the year and i really don't want to have done so well at the start of the year to give up just cos i'm struggling. I just need to find an alternative route for a bit. So am going for a 100% 810 day and see how i find it. Fingers crossed it'll be what i need to get the weight shifting again.

Have had my porridge and a pint of herb tea... feeling very thirsty today which is good I think, as sometimes I struggle to drink all the water. Also think I may be back in ketosis... I don't test with k-stix but my mouth has that nasty taste... hopefully this will make the 810 easier to stick with! And if I wasn't in ketosis before that may be why I was so hungry all the time. Kind of obvious, but it really ISN'T worth breaking away from the plans. (Says she who has been bending the rules for a while... but lesson learned!)

Anyone else out there?

Morning Katy and Rayven :)

Much more positive this morning and I WILL do this today.
Good luck with the 810 Rayven, very sensible to up the plan a bit when you aren't in the right place :gen126:
Glad to hear the scales are going in the right direction Katy :D

I realised yesterday that I have actually been setting myself up to cheat :eek: There has always been something in the fridge that I could eat (and I'm afraid I have been deliberately doing it) like chicken or tofu and I have been kidding myself that it was there for emergencies. Thought I was giving myself a safety blanket so if I really wanted to eat it would be something not too damaging.
Surprise, surprise it's that food sitting there that is making me wobble.
I chucked out all things I could eat last night and am going at this today with renewed determination.
Sorry for the ramble but it feels better to tell people who understand.

Morning lovely losers :)

Good for you Lazyhound.. it really pays to plan..

Well done Rayven for changing plans, I had to yesterday as my son is unwell and we had a 5 hour hospital visit (he is fne, just some minor health problems) so I had gone 6 hours without a pack - when we got home at 10.30pm I had some cottage cheese and ham.. so turned it into an 810 day..

Thanks so much for starting this daily thread Katy, it really really helps as I am home all day today in a house full of eater eggs with a poorly boy who keeps trying to feed me biscuits, I wonder why toddlers do that!!

One hour at a time today for me I think!!

Just for today I will stick to my plan which is 810 :)

Lazyhound, well done on sussing out what was happening! Hi Sarah... what an evening you had... glad it all worked out OK. I think 810 was definitely the best option. A few of us on 810 today then!

Planning really does help... as long as I stick to the plan, that is!!! I am literally counting the minutes until midday when I can have my bar - orange, today. Then am taking mum out for lunch, I will have just a white coffee. I usually take her shopping to town but did a shop for her last night, so it's basically a way of checking in & making sure she has a hot meal in the middle of the day, even if it's only soup. Then will have a hot choc shake in the afternoon - yesterday I split it and had two mocha-coffees, which were great, so might do that again. And then another quorn tea.

That's the plan, anyway... as Sarah says, hour by hour! Thanks for being around, guys.

Thanks for your support, it really helps :thankyou:

I have been shopping and have bought nothing that I could snack on. All food is planned and enough only for the 3 others in the house :)

Another 2 hrs until my next shake and 2 ltrs of water down.....

Hi Quizz... I am drinking tons today, must be a ketosis thing. Hope it helps!!!

Well done with the shopping, Lazy... if those sneaky treats aren't there we can't have them!

Sarah, don't listen to the easter eggs... they are very wicked and naughty and only want to lead you astray... stick your tongue at them and make a hot choc shake instead!!!

As for the plans... well, mine changed, alas!!! I caved in and had a salad when out with mum. It was just leaves and 2 cherry tomatoes & a hard boiled egg, but not on the 810 plan I am very aware. I should know better than to risk taking mum out to eat, she always goes on to try & make me eat too and I felt like everyone was looking at me... embarrassment is NOT a good reason to eat an egg salad, is it? However, damage limitation, the salad will be my 810 meal and the afternoon choc shake will be my tea. I SWEAR. So not 100%, but maybe 90%?

Sorry to admit to this in the middle of a cheat-free thread, but if I'd stayed silent about it I'd feel even worse. I need to be so careful around Mum, she is my strongest trigger of all... you'd think I would know that by now. Still, the upside is she ate a cheese omelette so I know she's had something hot & nutritious... left to herself she exists on chocolate & biscuits. (And is as thin as a stick).

They say confession is good for the soul... not sure about that, but I know you guys are supportive and won't make me feel bad. Funnily, this doesn't make me feel weaker or wobblier... stronger if anything. Like sliding off the wagon and clambering back on again straight away. Hope I'm not kidding myself here...

It's all about knowing and responding to these triggers it seems :eek: Sometimes we win, sometimes we don't :sigh:

If I had to eat out with my mum she would test me to the extreme and I'm not sure I would be able to withstand her.

My body thinks I'm hungry today, probably cos it freezing here and I'm shivering under all the layers so I've split my 4pm choc shake so I can have two hot choc with coffee :)

No judgement in this thread just understanding and support, it's a great place to be :gen126:

Thanks Lazy, it's all a learning curve I guess. A vertical one sometimes!!! I am trying hard not to feel too bad about it as that will just send me into a tailspin, but I need to switch my head on and learn to avoid the triggers. Baby steps!!!

Hope you can warm up a bit... one thing I haven't really had on CD is the feeling cold thing, it must be horrible. The hot choc coffee sounds like a great idea... I'd planned to do that, but gonna hang on and have my choc shake in a oner at 6 o clock. Daughter has just arrived home from school announcing there is 'a rave' in the village tonight & assorted teens from the surrounding areas will be crashing here overnight... whoop de doo.

You're not kidding yourself, sometimes it's about being flexible and as you say 'damage limitation'. Let's be honest there is nothing quite like family to trigger food issues!!

You've done brilliantly :)

Having a wibbly wobbly day too, again damage limitaton - not 100% but not bad either..

Hope everyone is well :)
