    Why oh why do I do this to myself. Just had a massive binge and now feel soo horrible for it. Iv lost 3 stone so far and im on my last stone to loose and the weightloss has slowed down tremendously. Its hard enough me being sts week after week and now iv just gone and made it even more difficult for myself. I was fine this morning had my 3 shakes and then it hit about 8pm and started nibbling on my daughters left over chips had about 4 chips then moved on to 2 vegtable samosas that hubby had left on his plate. I feel like a human dustbin seriously. And then felt bad after having all that so sat there for about 10mins thinking I wana have another binge and one little snack wont hurt. Before I knew it I had had a exante bar 2 packets of skips and a devon custard pot.
    I have a deadline of 31st july to loose at least another stone for my sisters wedding and the way im going it looks as if im gona end up 3 stone heavier :((

    Hi Zara, I posted this on my diary the other day. Thought it might help you in your current frame of mind although I hope you're feeling better today.

    Good luck on sticking with it. I know it must be frustrating. It seems to have taken me forever to shift my second stone. Have had 2lb loss after 2lb loss and that's just not fast enough for me really but I'm still plugging away. You have already come such a long way and you have a whole month to lose even more. Try to keep your sister's wedding day in mind and keep thinking how fab you'll feel on the day with close to another stone off, or even just half a stone, and how rubbish you'll feel if you are a stone heavier than you are now. You really will be kicking yourself. Chin up hun. It's only four weeks which is nothing in the grand scheme of things. :)

    Hi cate... woke up this mornin feelin soo bad its unbelievable and read ur post and has made me feel so much better:) x its totally true! Thank you sooo much for that. Gona be 100% for 4 weeks straight now. Have a made a promise to myself. Need to loose as much as I can by the end of july. Its just so disheartining seeing sts week after week or a 1 pound loss. These lil binges here and there are soo not worth the guilt afterwards... thank you xxxx

    Don't beat yourself up chick it happens to us all, you can't let this diet rule your life if you do what will happen at the end of it? Take the opportunity
    to learn from it, we all will have to go back to conventional food at some time, remembering that the binges don't make us feel good about our selfs will help us to prepare for a successful maintenance when we get to goal (hope that made sense, it does in my

    Be proud of yourself of how far you have come, brush yourself down put yesterday behind & get back on that horse...

    Good luck sweetie xxx

    Everyone slips up, and it's those slip ups that help us learn about ourselves. In the grand scheme of things you've done so well! Don't let one little blip bring you down, you're better than that. Learn from it, keep that end goal in sight and move on!!! x

    Hi Zara

    I have been doing the same thing on and off for a while now and feel like I am just wasting time and money so I have set myself a challenge to be 100% for the whole of July and we can do it together if you like. Always good to have some encouragement :rolleyes:

    Also forgot it's my 10th wedding anniversary 31st July so another good reason to stay on track!

    Come on we can do this!!!!!!

    Hi guys!
    Thank you all so much for ur words of encouragment. It honestly has helped alot. And I feel so much better for it. So iv had a 97% day today as had a nibble on some cheese ( oh lord help me) its only cos I had my last pack too earli that I started feelin a lil hungry later so had a few pinches of cheese. Weighed myself this afternoon and I put on a pound which dont seem bad...
    I guess that slimatee did the trick lol ( sorry tmi) but 1 pound takes me ages to loose. Next weigh in will be monday. Im currently 10.13 hoping for low 10s by end of july at least. 10 stone would be a bonus
    im hoping for a 100% day from tommoro until the end of july. So will defo take u up on that offer natalie :) x

    Glad you're feeling better about things and that you've found a 100% buddy in Natalie. That should help. Good luck to both of you.

    You've done brilliantly so far with your weight loss so a big pat on the back for that Zara.

    Its so hard when the loss slows down but you seem to have got over that last hurdle by nipping the eating in the bud so that shows you are strong enough to get to goal.

    This month is going to fly by so take one day at a time & keep coming on here for the support when you feel temptation taking over.

    Good luck today xx

    Hey Zara

    Hows it going? I've managed day 2 at 100%. Weighed this morning and lost 3lbs so far...whoop whoop!! And only 29 days to go lol.

    Really struggled at tea time as kids and hubby were having cooked chicken wraps for tea and I would usually have some chicken and maybe a babybel cheese but went and had a shower instead.

    I think the weekend will be my testing time :confused:

    Stay strong Xx

    Thanks susie :) the first 3 stone dropped off so quikly but this last stone is a killer. And having no weightloss week after week can get so depressing. I really do hope im strong enough and can resist temptation at least for this month.
    The support on this group is amazing. I really appreciate it. It really does help. Had a good day today mainly because iv got a really bad cold and have lost my appetite. Onwards and downwards hopefully xxx

    Hi metallic chick had a good day today only cos iv got such a bad cold and have lost my appetite so that has helped loads to b honest lol only had 2 packs today. Finished work at 10pm and couldnt really stomach anythin at that time. Thats what I will keep saying to myself "it will all be worth it in the end" to stop myself feeding my craving. Fingers crossed for a loss this week x

    Hi natalie. Congratzz on ur loss :) 3 pounds is amazingg...
    100% today :) yay onli cos iv got such a bad cold and have lost my appetite. Onli 2 packs today.
    I know exactly what you mean about tea time. Thats the time i usually cave and my mouth the human dustbin eats all the left overs from hubbys and lil ones plate. Thats the only time I usually cave. its so hard especially wen u have a family to cook for. And dont even get me started on the weekend :( im just hoping iv got myself into ketosis by then, As then il be less likely to have another binge. Xxx onwards and downwards.
    Hope you have a good day tomoro x

    Ok so I go went to my local boots ( where I usually weigh myself) not with the intention to get weighed as its not monday but to buy my lil ones baby milk which happens to me right where the weighin machine is. And I swear it kept lookin at me so I had to I just had to step on them. And it turns out.....

    Im now 10.8!!!!! Wen I was 10.13. 3 days ago thats a loss of 5 pounds in 3 dayss
    Its tooo good to be true.
    I dont believe it to be honest. It must be because I hadnt had my first pack yet. Do belly was empty.
    Will keep my weigh in on monday.
    I knew I shudnt of weighed so early. It plays games with my head agghhh

    That's fab Zara so well done you, I lost another pound since yesterday so 4 lbs in 2 days so far bringing me to 12.7.

    I have not seen below 12.7 for a rather long time so am hoping the next few days will bring me under, have also been 100% again today :D

    Goodluck for Monday, I reckon the scales will have moved again by then though xx
