    I hope this helps -- I have been in your shoes and presently very slowly relosing the weight I allowed myself to regain. Instead of beating myself up for regaining it, I am praising myself for being willing to do something about it.

    I am trying to focus on the fact that the longer it takes me to lose the regain, the more time I have to learn how to keep it off. Which I did not do for very long the last time (less than an entire year).

    Stop being so hard on yourself for a start x

    The best and worst thing about doing Cambridge is that you can lose and gain several pounds in a matter of days. The trouble is, in the early days many of those pounds aren't 'real'. They're reflecting changes in water balance, that's all. But for those of us that allow the scales to set our mood for the day (yes, I'm guilty! :eek:), it's really hard to keep that in mind.

    In context, all you've done is set reaching your goal back by exactly the number of days you've not been on plan. So instead of reaching goal on say September 12th, you might not get there until September 16th.

    So what? :)

    Four days. Nothing - not if you're like me and you've been overweight for years. Draw a line - hey if you have to, grab a piece of paper and literally draw one with a pen or pencil. And then resolve exactly when and how you're going to get back on track. Even if you decide not to get back on track until tomorrow, don't make that a reason to eat everything in sight for the rest of today, cos that'll only make getting back into ketosis even harder.

    You mentioned the word 'journey' - well, think of this as your car breaking down on the way to Slimville. No one's saying that you're not going to reach your destination - cos once the repairman's been out and done that whistling thing through his teeth, you'll be back on the road in no time.

    But number one tip - be gentle to yourself. There's no more reason to hit yourself over the head because you've had a few 'off days' than there there would be to hit that broken down car with a spanner. It doesn't help to get things moving again, does it? :)

    You can do this.

    Hey don't be so hard on yourself. We have all had day's week's months and in my case even years when we think what is the point in diets:confused:

    My sticky point was always day 3 of any diet & I would make an excuse to have something I know was not on the list it was very childish as I could hear the arguement in my head that I work hard and deserve to eat what I like.

    I do work hard but I can't eat what I like all the time my body is an amazing machine and I decided I would not put un leaded in my diesel car so I was not going to fuel myself on rubbish.

    My treats are no longer food related, I own a lovely pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, and some Jimmy Choo Uggs. I have a bit of a shoe thing and those are my rewards for not buying snacks, takeaways and wine :D

    You have not lost it as you have not given up ;) You are here..

    I think this forum is fab I find so much inspiration from people's journeys and I love the challenges they have so helped me stay on track and would recommend joining a challenge and hey if you loose or not that week your fellow challengers are living the week with you:D

    Take a day at a time and it will all click into place for you as it is something you want for you, and your not walking away until it's done & you are @ goal:D

    We will have to join in the maintance battle then hey :D
