    I was reading Racie Tracie's thread of breaking the vicious cycle where she seems repeatedly to be able to get down to 14st 1 lb then cave in & regain. Except the clever bunny has just chiped her way through to 13.13. & is off again.
    A couple of othe members said they'had similar.
    Mine isn't a fixed weght but seems to kick in at 15kg loss. (= roughly 3 1/2 stone).whether this is the level where you really notice a change in yourself & I then become complacent,or a deeper but not fully concoious realisation that I could risk joining the world of normal & all that that entails.

    I've deciced to call this effectThe Glass Floor

    Not This time Though (New abbreviation NT3)

    Anyone else out there with the same thing?

  3. Hiya, I have this, I've noticed in the past, that as soon as I'm about to drop into the next stone down, I have to go and destroy all my good work and cheat. It can be any number, doesn't matter which one and it's a subconscious thing, almost like its a no go zone... I don't know why. If there are any psychologists out there, they may be able to tell me why. A fear of change maybe? Anyway I broke into the next stone down this week so I'm extremely proud of myself. Hoping the next stone down will come and go so easy!!

    Oh and I like the new name for it by the way. It does feel like that. An uncomfortable feeling of wanting to stay in a secure and safe place.

    Tx

    Yeah I agree on other diets it was a stone I could never get to but with this diet its now 2 stone.

    I find as soon as I start getting compliments and I notice it as well I become cocky and complacent and the thing with this diet is you can't cheat.

    I will get that 2 stone though in the next week or so if it kills me and then I will battle with stone number 3 :rolleyes:

    Aghhh - another 2lbs and I will have lost 3 stones. One stone to go. Howver I am very much getting complacent - can fit into loads of clothes, bored of dieting, nibbling.

    Don't know what the answer is - but it is a definite phenonomen.

    I am using this board to keep up the monmentum - otherwise I will never get the last stone.
     
  6. I agree, even though I'm doing 790 so technically I could cheat but for some strange reason, this is the 1st diet I've ever done that I dont cheat on!! I think it's the fear of coming out of ketosis!

    And we'll all battle together thanks to minimins. This is the 1st time I've had support like this too!!

    I see success on the horizon!!:)

    Definately I find the support on here invaluable as although others around me are supportive they do not truly understand how I feel whereas I know there will be someone on here who is going through the same or has been through the same.

    I also find the board bloody addictive and before I know it I have forgotton about feeling hungry or wanting to nibble :)

    Wholeheartedly agree!!! My previous glass floor was 18 stone - took me over a year to break the cycle and get through!!! Got within 2 lbs of being under 17 stone and it all went t1ts up :(


    This is most definitely part of it - getting complacent, lazy with the water, fitting into more clothes at different shops - all make me lose focus.

    I've done 2 stone this year so far, but need just over 2 stone to get down to my lowest low, and this time I intend to stomp my way through that glass floor once and for all!! :eek:

    I have not made it passed 11st. 5lbs.

    Bounced off it and there is a part of me too that is scared to be slim again as the fat suit was something for me to hide away in...:cry:

    I have a thing about 11st. Barrier:( I want to break through it so much and then I feel I will be okay.:sigh:

    Also, I think it is easy to become complacent when you have ticked off a lot of boxes and your feeling so much better in yourself and the way you look.

    Love Mini xxx

    Sometimes it's just so scary, but in the end it's a number on the scales and we need not to be ruled by it.
