    Hi all

    Just wondered what the chances are of me sticking to CD again. I have had several false starts.

    I trully believe that if I had not come off the diet whilst on holiday, I would have been at goal yonks ago. :(

    Hiya mate

    Depends on your definition of success. I am now on day 19, having been on and off CD. Some of my break was due to severe ill health, some voluntarily. I believe that it can and will work for me again, and I am determined to keep going.

    Hiya DQ

    I wish I had half your determination. I can't get my head round it at all lately so I can't even think of starting again. My chatterbox is ruling me at the moment and I'm letting it. :(

    I know VLCD is the fastest and safest way to lose weight so why o why can't I do it!

    Hi Yorkie,

    I lost the plot in May and tried so many times to get back on and it was tough going and fell off again.

    So I started a food diary and worked myself down the steps (roughly) into SSing and that was five weeks ago tomorrow.

    This has done the trick for me and my head is back where it was the first time around.

    So it can be done.

    I had no withdrawal and was in ketosis within 24 hours...

    Love Mini xxx

    I have had a long time away, and being off CD through no choice of my own clarified a lot of things for me. Have you thought of doing one of the other programmes - 790 or 1000, then maybe working your way down to SS if that's what you want to do?

    I have a LONG way to go (approx 7 stone) so I know I'm in this for the long haul. I had to let go of guilt, self-doubt - all of it - and just trust that if I keep plodding and making good decisions more than bad I WILL get there in the end!!

    Thank you all so much for your replies you are so fab!

    I hadn't even really thought of starting on a higher plan and working my way down, duh! :eek:

    I'm gonna take it slow and not rush coz I'll end up on my bottom!

    To know everyone is so supportive is half the battle fought already.

    Bigs hugs all round.:D

    There is no rush - artificial deadlines don't help. Trust yourself and take your time ;)
