    Hee hee!

    This was the strangest thing that happened to me in the first couple of weeks of starting Lighter Life - I kept dreaming I had cheated and eaten something - the fear I would feel when I first woke up was horrible, and wouldn't go for a little while!

    Don't worry, it is normal (unless we are both mad!) the way I see it your sub concious is just playing out your worries and anxieties in your dreams, and it shows you are very committed to doing this right.

    The dreams will fade I promise,

    I also had very vivid 'food' dreams first time around. One time, I dreamed I'd paid £50 for one of those microwave roast dinners :eek:
    But it was so real, I was convinced I'd cheated - and for something that was not very nice too!

    It's normal ... a few weeks later I dreamed I had a basque in my undies drawer so obviously my subconscious desires had changed :)

    Hey LLers!
    Just putting my nose in here to say that they are called "addict dreams". Apparently drug users get them in rehab. We were doing them in a psychology module in uni, and i can totally relate to them. It's your brain playing out your subconcious needs.

    Scares me to think i am actually totally addicted to food xxx

    Thanks Angel - I am actually on Lighter Life, but I believe it is very similar to LT.

    I have lost the weight since May last year, so no time at all really when I think how long it would have taken me on WW or SW!

    Good luck with your journey, and just think you could be done by the summer!

    Wow Leesy-all that weight since may? THat's amazing!!

    Well done you!! You should be very proud of yourself huni!

    I have allways been 'big boned' lol and i have tried(and failed at) WW/SW. losing 1lb/2lb a week makes no difference to me and i would become disheartened and then give up.

    i just hope that LT is the answer for me.

    Keep up the good work chick.:Dxxx

    Yup, I woken in panic more than once cos I thought I had eaten something. Even funnier - I used to have fights and freak out at people who tried to make me eat in my dreams... Even in my dreams I was on LT!!! My mother used to crack up when I told her about them.

    That is scary that they are part of withdrawal from food addiction!!!

    Had a few dreams but always been aware they were dreams luckily otherwise i might be crying in the morning!

    However, I do talk in my sleep (always have done :eek: ) and Neil informs me there is a lot of muttering about jacket potatoes, pizza and pasta at the moment! :eek: Just as well he doesn't need to lose weight as he'd be doomed to failure with me muttering at him all night!!
