getting complacent, bridesmaid issue and general laziness help!

Oh deary me - my mind is playing naughty tricks and my inner nomad is subconsciously trying to get me to cheat.

For some unknown reason this morning all these little thoughts about having a nibble on this or that and having a gorge have been creeping in. I am trying to push them out again.

I don't know if its because I know that in a weeks time I will be on holiday and not ss 100% so that naughty part of me is saying why wait until then? I don't know if its complacency - now I know I can lose the weight any time I want to, it doesn't matter if I am a bit naughty....

BUT IT DOES MATTER!!!! I am really trying to stay determind, drink my water ss 100% until I am actually on holiday. I am not on holiday now so should not behave as if I am.

Almost hearing that voice say I am fighting a losing battle and it would be so easy to give in so I think I need to pretend I am back in week one or two and take it an hour at a time. :D oh deary me!

I am actually in a chipper mood so just trying to stay with it.

Maybe as its approaching midway. By the holiday I will be at my midway target of 21lbs off and then another 21lbs after my holiday to lose.

Also- going to be a bridesmaid in September and my sis is insisting on getting me a size 16 dress even though I already think that will be too big. I've tried negotiating saying a size 14 and I will up the plans so my weight loss slows around that time (could even be a size 12 by end of august). I am trying to be fair to the bride becuase I know how annoying it is when you ask bridemaids if they are going to lose weight and what dress size to buy, they say no then go lose weight just before the day so dress is pinned on. But also, i think its a bit naughty when she kows I am trying to lose weight to force a size 16 on me when she knows I am already getting back into some of my size 14 stuff.

What would you do? Bear in mind the horrendous lkecture I got from her for being on this diet!

Aw chin up, kiddo. I know what you mean about going on holiday (I'm going away Thursday and meeting some friends in a pub after work tonight - the temptation to think "sod it, eating a couple of days early won't make any difference" is almost overwhelming!). The difference between us is you could easily lose another 2-3lbs before you go away, so don't let go now!!

As for the bridesmaid thing, try hard not to be persuaded in to a size 16. I assume sis is getting stressed and wants the bridesmaid dresses sorted, but I know for me that if I was forced in to a dress that fitted me, the temptation to come off the diet to suit the dress would be very high. Stick to your guns - tell her that as soon as you come back from your hols you will have a better idea of what sort of size you might be in September so promise to sort it then. Failing that, agree to a 16 only on the understanding that it is the kind of dress that could easily be altered down a couple of sizes - BECAUSE YOU WON'T BE A SIZE 16 THEN!!! :)

Hi hun, Didn't want to read and run. Echoing what the others have said really :) Just wanted to see if you're ok and how you're getting on? You've done so well and the finishing line is in sight...keep going xxx
Decided to ignore the bridesmaid dress issue seeign as im not even allowed to see it before it is bought. Her problem not mine. Sure it will be fab.

I don't know whats up with me but I am ravenous. I've not given in and it feels more like a psychological hunger like I could just stuff my face with everything and anything. But I am doing my best to stick with it. Maybe its just one of those days. I am feeling a bit hormonal so maybe thats why. Normally on that totm my appetite is insatiable so maybe it will put in an appearance a week late after all.

Originally I planned to take bars with me on hols but then I did wonder if a complete break would be good but I think that would be a downward slide.

really dunno whats up with me today. Normally I am focused and upbeat and even when i'm on a downer, I am still very focused.

Thanks for all your support ladies and gents and sorry for the double post!
