    Don't give in - you CAN do this. Have a bath, go for a walk, paint your nails, plan your next holiday - but DON'T give in. I'm watching you lol!!!

    ah thanks lol, maybe it's just because it's the first few days. Might take the bath idea into consideration, thanks xx

    It is tough in the first few days. There will be tough days further in too. It's a good idea to have a range of strategies to deal with it.

    I agree with lass321..

    You've just said to your body "no I'm not going to eat whatever I want" and your body is asking "why not??"

    It takes a few days to get into it but you'll soon feel the benefits... Make sure you drink plenty of water..
    Boaring maybe but it helps to keep you full, cleanses your system and often when we think we're hungry we're in fact thirsty!! Good Luck :)

    Don't give up hun!!!! come on, you can do this, we all can! the first few days/weeks are the toughest, changing habits that we've had for such a long time is hard work!!!..the urges and habits don't disappear easily..BUT believe me, once you are in the swing of things, it will become easier and it will be second nature to stay on track as you will be seeing great results..and you will want to keep that feeling and see those lbs melt forever.

    I often have a bath, rather than a shower, when hunger strikes, by the time you come out, the urge will have passed. Its on my list on your other thread :)

    If you give up now hun, you'll only have to go through this adjusting period all over again at a later date!!!!..so get it out of the way now..and you'lll be on the road to success :)

    This lifestyle changing isn't easy, its hard work, but mind over matter works for me,i remind myself why i am doing it..and if i want to feel and look healthier and attractive..then its GOT to be done!!! :)

    good luck..keep posting, it will help you remain focused :)
