    :badmood:I don't know why but today I'm just really grumpy?! :mad:

    I'm being short with people and although I'm not having thoughts of giving up CD, I keep comparing my weight losses to other peoples :sigh:

    I started off at 26 stone and when I see someone much lighter than me losing more than me every week..... for some reason it's really getting to me.......

    I know I shouldn't be comparing myself as I know better than that! :cry:

    Does anyone else do this? :confused:

    Sorry I'm usually upbeat but somethings got into me today!:mad::flamingmad:

    I compare mine to other people's too and by most people's I see I haven't lost as much as other people's in the first few weeks. :(

    Keep strong today! Maybe do something nice for yourself like have a long bath, or a little walk or go see a movie, etc? :)

    Your weight loss looks fantastic from where I'm standing! ;)

    even with the losses i have, i still get "scale envy"....i long to be at goal, so when people are so close, i feel quite jealous! :(

    its crazy so i try and keep it under check...but occassionally it gets to me!

    I'm also really grumpy today if its any consolation....pee'd off because we're broke and all i want to do is go shopping....all i can think about is getting new clothes.....and its depressing the hell out of me! :(

    yes I do this too and can have a jealous streak in me when someone is doing fantastically well and wish it was me. For that purpose I don't track my weekly losses on here and I try not to read other peoples. (I've re read this bit and it sounds awful but I do have to say that when I do read peoples efforts and achievments it does make me more inspired and more confident to stick with this diet and get to my own goal) I'm alot better now then when I started out probably because I am an impetient so and so and want to be thin in a click.

    we all have good and bad days whether we are on the diet or not hun... you're just having a bad one....
    as hard as it is, this is YOUR journey and no-one else will have the same losses, but no-one else will have YOUR success either!
    as my mum used to say "theses things are sent to try us".... just keep going and keep getting the support you need on here, cos we are all in the same boat.
    keep focused on YOUR successes and those yet to come.

    We all compare.... in some way or another. Don't be getting downhearted as this may make you feel the need to eat!!!

    You have done so well, and if my maths is correct you have only 4lb to go to reach your last mini target. thats a week or under two weeks by your losses.

    The first time I did CD it was after the two stone mark that people started to notice I had lost weight and the encouragement definitely helps. You have all this ahead.

    You will be surprised by measurements..... I can not stress enough that everyone is different but stick to this 100% and it works. It may not show on the scales every week but it will show on your measurements and it is much more consistent than any other diet plan I have done or looked at with much less STS results.

    You are losing and on the way to a better you.

    Feel better soon.

    I think we're all so used to beating ourselves up and being down about our weight that, even when we're losing more weight per week than we could ever have imagined pre-CD, we just have to look for something to criticise ourselves for don't we? Its in our nature cos we've spent so much time lacking in self-esteem and confidence. That certainly is the case with me. I find it really hard to be nice to myself and to treat myself with any sort of positivity. When I occasionally get a great weight loss, I just expect another one the following week and I usually get disappointed then I look at other people's and envy them and get all frustrated with it. We're far too harsh on ourselves arent we?
    Keep your chin up Devilish - today will pass and tomorrow will be better. You're doing a fabulous job and you're moving towards a new you. Be proud of your amazing achievement and the fact that you're successfully enduring a very hard diet. You're a star and you should hold your head up very high!!! xxxxxx

    I think I'll get scale envy too, but we have to look at the bigger picture. There is loads of great advice above so I don't need to add anymore. You'll get plenty of support on here though so chin up.

    Aawww hun, sending you big hugs.:hug99: We all know what its like to have a day like that... You have had brilliant losses, you're on track to the average stone a month they reckon most people settle in to. Its normal to compare to others, I do it all the time, and not just with weight,- hair, clothes, cellulite, spots etc.... It always seems that the old demons of self doubt and critisicm only lurk just under the water - ready to pop out and drag you down when you feel low!! The important thing to remember is that you have started this journey, not just sat back and ignored it. You are taking positive steps to feel better about yourself and that should be soundly celebrated. You came on here to talk instead of hitting the cupboards. We're all here for you and understand how you feel. I look at others on here who've lost heaps, -I feel chuffed for them, excited at the prospect of being like that but also bloody impatient that i can't be there now!!! Isn't that just a normal dieters mindset? I remind myself that on previous diets I have sometimes only seen between 1-4lbs losses per week,or even gains, and in many ways they took so much more effort than this, all that counting, sins, and sense of depravation. Keep up the good work, you can do it! xx
    p.s. trying to set up the team if you're still interested, love to see you there xx

    Hi Devilish !
    I feel the same, can I join your grumpy party? Just one of those days I guess.
    I wonder if I will lose 3lbs this week, I seem to have had the same losses each week as you !

    It is hard. The weather makes you feels worse too. Oh to wake up on a sunny day and feel positive about the diet. But it's a Sunday and the rain poured here.
    The thing with cd is you will get losses and, unlike other diets, you won't have a gain when you stick with it. My journey has been slow but I am so close to a 3 stone loss which I notice in my dress size, that is where it matters to me. There will always be skinnier people who eat loads, like my own sister. It's life. I can try and speed up the losses but need to motivate myself to up the water and exercise. I have to look at my bigger picture. It is important.
    Hope things are looking better tomorrow!

    hey - please please PLEASE don't compare yourself to anyone else ! we are all different and this is not helpful to do...and can actually push us off track....

    you are YOU and every pound YOU lose is a pound closer to YOUR GOAL :)

    you are doing so well - keep up the great work ! and don't forget to keep us posted !!!
