After much consideration, I have decided to come off CD for a little while or possibly for good I have turned in to a recluse, have no social life, can't exercise and generally have been feeling unhappy on the diet for the past 2/3 weeks.:cry: I feel I have done well but always knew that this was a temporary thing for me to kick start my weight loss. It is far too drastic to be on for any length of time in my opinion. Now after losing 2 stone, I feel the best route to go down is healthy eating and exercise to lose the last 13lbs. If this means it takes a bit longer to shift then so be it. I really want to know if anyone else has ever done this? I am thinking of going on to WW (still trying to maintain a fairly low carb/low cal diet) but as I have not moved up the plans do not want to pile on the lbs by doing so. Please take into consideration that I will now be exercising at least 4/5 times a week which I wasn't able to do on CD. Will I be ok?? Help??
