I keep saying I couldn't have picked a more stressful period in my life to do this diet than now (well with two exceptions thinking about it).
I have my own business, we are in the process of getting together our first order for one of the top three supermarkets and every single thing that could go wrong, has and I mean EVERY single thing, not one stage in this whole job has gone right. This is despite this being our sixth major customer now and having done much bigger jobs than this.
We have worked 21 hour days in the past week to try to get this job dispatched and we only received the last of the packaging this morning - it needs dispatching on Wednesday!
In the past four months I have also had to move the children away from a school that we loved, I was a governor, my family have been involved in the school since before it was opened and it was a horrendous and far reaching decision to move them.
It has also been our busiest time in work too.
I spend a lot of time travelling through work as well and find that particularly difficult. I have just spent almost a week in Germany doing an exhibition as well.
And I have three young kids.
I have always always used food as a crutch and have felt almost bereft without it. I keep wondering if I would have been better waiting for a less stressful time to do this diet because I really have struggled.
But you know I think if you take a snapshot of any four or five months in your life there are going to be very stressful periods, events, weddings, holidays, etc and therefore I really don't think that I should have waited because I really don't believe there is a "right time" to do this.
Good luck, stick at it and listen to the counselling, pick up what you can to help you for the rest of your life.
Something our counsellor said this week and many others have also said on here is that it is much much harder second time around.
Good luck, keep posting and keep focussed, that is all any of us can do.
