    Hi all

    Help
    I'v just started back on the ss, i'm really positive and am doing ok. The problem is everytime i do a diet i do great in the first two or three weeks but as soon as i notice i'v lost weight or if some one tells me i just loose all interest and stop. i have a lot of weight to loose and always felt that me noticing or someone else noticing should inspire me to keep going. I'm really lost as to why this keep happening and im hoping with this site if i keep posting it will help me when this time comes

    Hi Meganrose and :welcome:

    Just keep posting on here! With a restart it can often be harder, sometimes easier because you know what to expect.

    Keep us posted on how you are going!

    Welcome Meg!!!
    :talk017::talk017:​
    If it's other peoples comments that make you lose interest, then I would use a mantra to counteract it and fool your subconscious into keeping on the track!

    I say mine into the mirror, aloud, every morning!

    Something like

    I'm doing this for me, nobody else, I will achieve my goal. If anyone comments, I'll thank them and forget about it!

    Say it over and over again, until your mind believes it (strangely we have an internal voice all the time, but saying your mantra aloud is much more powerful than the small internal one!)

    It will seem a little silly at first, but, who cares if it works!!!

    HTH

    1. Put my jeans on today and when i was trying to put my boots on i could hardly breath!
    2. caught sight of myself side on in mirror and my belly was sticking out further than my boobs

    I know exactly what you mean......I had several people telling me on Friday down the pub how good I was looking.....then ordered a jacket potato and chilli <slap>! Everytime I've done a diet before I get to a certain point and then totally lose it, for the last few weeks I've been literally a few pounds off a 4st loss..... and my brain keeps clicking and making me muck about....this week I feel so much more focused tho, my CDC is away for 2 weeks and I'm utterly determined to be down in the 15's by the time she gets back (have parties every weekend til the end of August, could be a challenge!) Keep coming into our Sunshiners thread Megan, we're waiting for you!!!! xxxx

    Hope day 4 has been ok. I'm day 4 too. Found today harder for some reason but stuck with it. Feeling a bit better now and hopefully will feel much better tomorrow. Keep glugging the water and before you know it week one will be one and dusted for both of us - or so I keep telling myself :rolleyes:.

    I've found if I say to myself, 'I've done one day that means I can do two days', then ' I've done two days that means I can do four days' it helps. Hopefully I'll be saying 'I've done one week that means I can do two weeks'.

    Bye for now

    Hi Amanda and Meganrose, You should both be in ketosis by now, or at least well on the way, so hopefully things will ease up and you'll start to reap the benefits or added energy and of course carpet tongue!lol. Keep us updated with your progress!

    Do try to have the 3 packs a day, if you don't you run the risk of burning lean tissue instead of the fat that we want to get rid of.... which is not only dangerous long term, but will mean that you will be more likely to regain your weight, when you start eating normally, as the body tries to replace the muscle it's lost.

    Don't stress about your weigh in, I'm sure the losses are going to be significant! I'm looking forward to you posting!!!

    Alipallys right, you must have your three packs a day.

    If your doing anything wrong it's having just the two packs a day. If you have three packs a day, glug the advised water. No more (maybe a little more water if you can), no less. The weight will come off if you stick to this, no stressing, it will happen :)

    We are starting at almost the same weight. We can do this. You're doing well, hopefully into ketosis like me, and nearly at the end of the hardest week. Have faith, it does work.

    Have a good day today.

    Take care
