    I'm really struggling over the last few days! I'm only on half way through week 3 and all I can think about it food, chewing it, tasting it and cooking it.

    At times I feel like quitting but am scared that I'll undo my hard work (13.7lbs loss in 2 weeks) but don't know whether I can continue for another 10 weeks!

    I am determined to lose weight but need to eat and all this abstinence is making me want to binge. It's making me snappy and very irritable!

    I havent lapsed once whilst on total but am now coming very close!

    Please help xxxx

    I can sympathise with you. I woke up at 4am after dreaming about porridge!! I made pizza for the kids tonight and I nearly gave in but then thought that I am swapping a life time of fatness for a few months without food. It's not that I will never be able to have it just not now. You have lost so much weight already don't undo all your good work. x

    You don't need to eat, you are clearly focusing on food, try to focus on you wearing something in your dream size! Ignore food, avoid the tv programmed etc etc and most of all keep yourself really busy.

    You have done so well stick with it. Break your 10 weeks down to smaller chunks that also helps.

    Goodluck and stay strong xx

    Thank you!

    The main thing is that I haven't cracked yet but can change my mind on an hourly basis re:lapsing!

    I have become obsessed with baking, not because I lick the spoon or eat the cakes, more to do with having something to do and focus on when I'm feeling emotional (happy, sad, angry, upset etc). my husband suffers from chronic depression and when he is struggling it leaves me feeling frustrated and that is when I would eat. I have a young family and care from my husband sometimes as if he were a child.

    I understand that eating doesn't take those feelings away but I need to find something else to help me cope and at the moment its baking!

    I hope that I can keep strong as I know I can do this and will be a better person inside and out for it!

    I sympathise with you on the depression thing the love if my life suffered so bad, it massively impacts the people around them they are the silent sufferers when it comes to depression!

    A few people on LL take to cooking or baking, stronger will power than me but whatever works I say do it!

    Thanks LadyT. It's good to hear someone understands what it's like to live with someone who suffers from depression.

    It's so frustrating at times, I wish my life away and hope that one day things will be settled and I will be able to control my urge to eat!

    Although I haven't lapsed whilst being on LLT I think about it constantly as I feel my life is difficult enough without the added pressure of not eating! We finally have social plans and I can't enjoy being "normal" and eating with friends!

    My mind is a mess but so far I haven't succumbed to the urge to eat!

    Things will become easier the longer you are on the diet, honestly.

    Stay strong xxx

    I do hope so!

    For some reason it's getting harder rather than easier but nearly completed week 3 so let's see what next week holds!

    Thanks for the support x
