    ... a bit of a blip:eek: since Friday.
    I won't go into details, but suffice to say I'm definitely out of ketosis! I still have a stone to go (though I didn't do my weigh in yesterday - leaving it for an extra week in the hope that it evens out!) so today I am going to sort it out!!
    I wasn't even hungry - completely emotional issues BUT this is what I need to address. It always seems to happen when I get close to goal, something seems to snap and I sabotage it.
    Anyway, no excuses, I am NOT going to undo all the good work I've done, it's down to me and me only.
    Wish me luck today :rolleyes:

    I think it's something in our brains that goes haywire when we get close. I just start thinking 'ooh look at how well I've done, now I can relax' and then it starts to go back on. The human mind is a complex thing!

    Aaw, thanks for the good wishes everyone :). I had been avoiding the forum in my shame, but I knew the only way to get back on track was with the support of the good people on here - priceless.
    Lisa, I'm sure it is a mental thing. I'll try to be more aware of it now, find a better way to reward/console myself.
    And Spyro - you're on!!!!! It really HAS to be all or nothing. It was just a "little pick" on Friday that started the whole sorry mess! And remember - little pickers wear big knickers ;)
    HONK!

    Ooh, thanks!
    Hmm, day 3 - that'll be Friday for us then. It's a non-pupil day for both my kids so at least I'll be busy - though probably quite stressed too! Maybe I'll plan a day out for us so we won't be cooped up together all day.
    I've reset my goal to 9st 13lb so that's another stone. Though realistically I think anything up to 10st 5 or 6lb would be ok for me, if I could get there and stay there!
    You don't have far to go either - the finishing line is in sight :)

    Sorry you're having a bit of a battle Lucy and Spyro, but I must admit I'm picking too. Obviously I am miles away from target, but I was away at the weekend and ate a couple of meals then and since then I've not been 100%. It started with not-too-naughty stuff yesterday, but I've been a lot worse today, though hopefully it won't affect my weigh in too much next Tuesday.

    It's a nightmare trying to stop nibbling once you get in the groove, though! :)

    Looking that way Carrie! Yesterday wasn't too bad at all - I'm hungry today tho, but feeling strong enough to deal with it :)
    Another early night for me perhaps? Then roll on the big K! :D

    Hang in there Carrie - you know the waiver will pass, don't let your head tell you there's no point holding out - THERE IS!!!! Like they say, we're worth it! Fight them cravings off with a big stick x

    Good trick :)
    Yep, so far so good. I split a bar between breakfast and lunch so I've got a soup for tea and a hot vanilla/coffee later tonight. I should be ok ;) I think I've drunk my body weight in mint tea, decaf and hot water flavouring today, I was SO cold at work! At least I've got my 3 litres in :\
