I have been looking forward to refeed the week leading up to it and now I'm 5 days in I feel so low. :confused::confused:

Surely I should be feeling ok has I am still sticking to what I should be eating and my scales (dodgey though they are) haven't indicated I've suddenly gained. So why do I feel so low?

Has anyone else had this. I have the strangest feeling of wishing I was back full time on the shakes!! Most bizarre. Not because I miss them but I think I miss the buzz of feeling like I had acheived something tremendous each day I passed.

My family had a pizza take away on Wednesday with wedges the lot! If I was on shakes I'd be craving to have just a wee taste but now I wasn't bothered at all. I was quite happy to sit there with my steamed fish and asparagus.

I think I'm just going through another LT phase of adjustment.

Ok self pity moment over!

I know how you feel. Lipotrim feels like a life belt when you're losing, and now you're having to come to terms with letting it go. Don't worry though - stick to the refeed sheet and you'll be fine. After a couple of weeks you'll stop feeling guilty about eating and start to enjoy it again - but hopefully in a new way.

All the best



I will be skinny again!!!

It most definatly is part or the adjustment phase.. You will feel better about or soon, you miss the feeling of being in control

Hey Rose, can today completely identify with what you were saying. Having started my refeed on Friday, and going away for the weekend (got back last night) this morning I am pleased to be having my LT shakes (like old friends) I haven't been to do the 'big food' shop yet so have nothing healthy in the fridge - and it kinda feels okay to be reliant on the shakes I have....am even looking forward to my chicken soup!!

Was thinking that if I weigh myself now and find that I haven't done well on my re-feed I can justify staying on shakes - even though my weigh in isn't until tomorrow.

All very odd!
