Lol I understand what you mean, you are like me it has the opposite effect, people get motivated by complements I start eating lol, hope I change my eating habit too.
awww at least im not the only one who thinks like that i lost 2 stone about 5 months ago with cd and came of the diet as i couldnt stick to it now im back been 9 days and it seems easier the second and last time round i hope need to loose about 3 stone and i will be happy
what is your starting weight if you do not mind? i need to lose 5-6 st at least 16st7lb
I'm exactly the same, I've had loads of restarts and each time I've given up it is when people have begun to comment on my weight loss. I guess I use weight as a shield, when I'm fat I feel I sit in a corner and blend in (Wishful thinkng!) I know people won't talk about "me". It's reassuring to know others have the same reaction.

We'll all get there!
my start weight was 14 stone now 9 days later im 13.3ibs finish week 2 on monday so see how much ive lost
hopefully if i stick to it i will be around 12 stone by xmas


Doing Slimming World
I feel the same, I realise how much crap I really used to eat.
Same here and I am actually appaled by how much I used to eat!

A typical day would be:

Small bowl of healthy cereal like bran flakes (as every day I was starting a diet!)

I would cave in at about half 10 and go to Gregs bakery for a cheese and onion pasty AND a caramel doughnut.

Lunch would either be half of a takeaway pizza from Papa Johns or a coronation chicken sandwich or coronation chicken jacket potato with loads of butter from the local sandwich place

Mid afternoon snack would be chocolate bar, sweets, popcorn - something like that but not just one but two or 3!

And then in the evening I would eat whatever for dinner, takeaway or spaghetti bolognase or something and then I would have a chocolate bar or ice cream for desert!

When I read over that it makes me feel sick, I don't even recognise those eating habits anymore! No wonder I was about 11 stone (5 foot 1) when I started Lighter Life back in January!

oh yes i know that one all too well x
This post is interesting as I've been on CD for over 9 weeks now and the more compliments I get, the more I feel like eating, my boss has been away for about 5 weeks and commented via e-mail today that she couldn't wait to see the 'new Sarah'.... for some reason that has FREAKED me out and I have been picking and self sabotaging all afternoon :(

Weird.. I think I need to get back to therapy..

Sarah x
