    hello, ihave done a vlcd ( cambridge and it worked for me but i reached a point where i could no longer not eat, and it took me a long long time to accept that loosing 2-4 pounds a week is the normal i need... i was binging and vlcd binging then vlcd i made myself pooorly and afffected my outlook of food... ive recently joined slimming world with 2 1/2 stone to loose ive lost 3.5 pound in my first week and im doing well i havent needed to binge or eat chocolate... i think if you can stick with it stick with it but if you can i would consider a change do not get into the habit of binge and vlcd it is a viscious cycle i wouldnt recommend. Im 24 and i want to be well in control of my eating habits because it just isnt a life outlook :p.... il cross my fingers for you and hope you can perservere :D Amy x

    hi angel,

    welcome to the forum, im sure ul find it a great support like i do :) iv been on LL for 5 weeks so im a long way off where u r but advice id like to offer u is this.....

    i used to be 18st, i lost a few stone with healthy eating b4 hitting a brick wall, i then joined LL at 15st 3lb 5 wks ago. i feel like iv been on a diet forever but what keeps me going is knowing that the journey i have left is only a fraction of the distance iv already travelled. u have come so far as im sure u know, just keep looking forward and focus your mind into a new way of life. i know that is so much easier said than done but u can do this, just take it a step at a time and ul b so proud of yourself with each step u achieve. i hope iv helped. well done and good luck xx

    hey!!! Thank you for your lovely replies!!!
    I can see what your saying binging is very dangerous!! I feel i need to keep goin as when i started i promised id see my way through it and that i think i know that if i come off i i wont be able to go bk on it again!! so I would really really like to keep goin I think i may have to re read my foundation book and c where im goin rong!!!
    I think im anoyed with my self as i seem to only have lost 1st in 8 weeks and the amount im payin makes me feel sad!! I just need to try and re focus!!!hehe

    good for u jenni :) your sounding more positive already. 1 stone in 8 wks may not be what u hoped for but its still a great loss, 1 stone on would have been so much worse so u have done well to have lost that stone. sometimes just a bit of support is all it takes :) xx
