    Hi Guys,

    I wonder if you can help. I have been on 1000 plan since Thursday and i have got to say i am loving it!!:D:D:D The food that cd allows us to have is extremley filling and i have checked on numerous occasions as i got paranoid i was having too much lol:eek: I have made sure i have measured everything correctly and double checked that my scales are correct (sad i know).:8855:

    The question is how long can we stay on 1000? Is it 2 weeks maximum or 2 weeks minimum? I really want to stay on it for 3 weeks before i move to 1500. I feel this will give me the time to re train my brain with portion size and control of when i am hungry and when i am not.

    I dont want to fall back into bad habits and eat like a pig for the sake of eating like i did the last time:17729:
    I know i only have 2lb until i reach goal and its not about losing more weight i just dont feel that 2 weeks on 1000 will be enough for me

    If anyone could help that would be great xxx

    Can i also ask if its ok to be having shredded wheat every day for breakfast? Thats what i have been having becuase its the easier option at work?

    Should i be mixing it up a bit more?

    as far as i know, you can stay on 1000 until your ready and wanting to add more food...usually driven by lunchtime food i would imagine although im finding that splitting my evening meal into 2 that it covers my lunch too!

    and i also have 2 shredded wheat every work day for breakfast as its just easier for work!
    Cant be making egg on toast in the office! lol

    Well another successful day of 1000 yet i am concerned. I am only 2lb away from a weight that i would only ever dream about yet why am i istill unhappy. I should be over the moon! I got into a pair of size 10 shorts i lost all the weight in 6 weeks yeet i still feel that i am not slim?? why?? SO many people have commented about the weight i have lost and i am grateful but i dont see it myself. Why cant i see what others see? Why do i still see someone who looks out of shape?

    Does anyone else feel like this?

    Hey hun,

    I am 10lbs from goal and am getting lots of positive comments from people about how great I look, but i still see the lumps and bumps that annoy me.

    I believe that because the weight comes off so quick with CD it takes your brain awhile to catch up (if that makes any sense) I am still a way off goal and it will take at least another month or so before I hit it as I had to prematurely come onto the 1000 plan due to health problems. I have been doing 1000 for a few weeks now and still feel like I am eating too much.

    Are you doing anything to tone up? I started zumba classes a few weeks back and I love it :D also bought myself a flexibar so hopefully that will tone up the abdominals and the ole saddlebags lol.

    You've done amazingly well.

    Know how you feel hun, i am constantly looking at the areas i dont like (bum and belly) but im sure we'll get there soon xxx

    I completely agree hun, my brain still hasnt caught up. I went shopping yesterday and still couldnt get my head around the fact that i can fit into size 10's. I still tried the size 12's 1st lol

    Yes hun, i run 2 miles 4 times a week and also go boxercise twice a week so excercising 6 days a week, plus running after 2 kids and housework lol. I am going to measure myself in another 2 weeks to see how much difference it has made.

    Ive also given up smoking so i really need to concentrate on not compensating with food xxxx
