Urrgh these past few days have just been awful.

I'm half way through my journey and normally I would be concentrating on one day at a time but at the moment I just can't seem to get it out of my head that I've still such a long way to go to my goal.

At the moment it feels so far away :(

Don't know where these feelings have come from as after the first couple of weeks I've been feeling so happy confident and strong. Right now I feel so disheartened. I've no real reason to as since I started I have lost two stone which is amazing in 6 weeks.

I'm trying to stay focused on my one day at a time but it feels so tough at this moment.

Eveyone says I look amazing and I know I look a LOT better BUT I also know I still look overweight and have 3 more stone to lose. So although I am pleased with what I have done I know I won't be satisfied until I reach my goal and get into a size 12. I really am not prepared to make do with size 14/16.

I simply hate how a size 16 in per una at M&S is not the same as a size 16 in new look or similar. My clothes from Monsoon and M&S which are 16 are very loose whereas a size 16 in new look is just too tight!!:cry:

Did anyone else get a dip in their motivation? How did you manage to pick yourself up and carry on. Don't get me wrong I have no intention of quitting as there is NO WAY I want to be a fat bride in October!! I want to be able to go into the Bridal shops and NOT be directed to the plus size rail!!!!

Just feel so bloomin down!! :raincloud:

Congratulations on your weight loss so far, it is quite normal to have dips in your LT journey but October is a long time off on this diet and 3 stone is well in reach, please do not feel disheartened. I get married in July and also have 3 stone to lose but I know it can be done. Best wishes.

Crunchy, treat yourself this evening to an extra long relaxing soak. Stop thinking about clothes right now too. That whole dress size thing is something I completely identify with but what I decided to do was not look at any new clothes until I can shop for the size I want. My thing is to rummage in cool second hand stores - and they are always sizes 10 & 12!! So I'm not going in until I know I can wear them.

'I really am not prepared to make do with size 14/16.'
There it is hun you said it yourself above, it means you have to ride through this dip. I have been through this dip, and for me I know it is self sabotage, those little demons telling me I am only going to fail so why bother. I went through it for a few days too.

Ride through each hour no kidding and bail your eyes out if you can to release it all.

Keep going, you have 2 questions to ask yourself, how would you feel if you stopped now? Which is better getting to goal no matter what or eating?

Hey crunchy one of my quick fixes for lack of motivation is to pop in to local supermarket and put as many bags of sugar i can get close to the weight i have lost into a shopping basket then walk up and down isles a couple of times u soon realise what you have achieved and puts u back on track just be careful not to drop them . huggles for you too :)

Well done, you are doing brilliantly. I find it good to add up how many shakes I have left to drink and count down the total. Its good when you only have a few weeks left and you are counting down to zero : )
