    Well, this weekend was a planned break after 26 weeks on SS.

    I had an amazing weekend with my friends and ate and drank what I wanted.

    The breakthrough is that I chose the healthy options and learnt to say no when I was satisfied.

    As a result, I have gained 1.5lbs which I know is water weight and will be gone in a day or so.

    I am just really chuffed that I was able to really enjoy myself, eat with everybody else and not have to have the unhealthy options!

    I have had e-mails from everyone today saying how good I look and how much they enjoyed the food that I had picked, they didn't realise that eating healthy could be that enjoyable!

    Feeling rather pleased with myself and think I've finally turned a corner and can confidently start working up the plans knowing that I can do it - yay! :D

    It really is a great feeling isn't it?! Anybody who says that CD doesn't teach you how to eat properly after you reach goal is so wrong!

    It is very strange isn't it that all of the 'healthy eating' diets that I have done over the past 25-odd years have not even come close to putting my head in the place it is now (no, not in the oven) - a good place where I can make choices and feel as though I am in control. Part of it I think is the rapid loss - as I can see results straight away, I'm less tempted to overeat and undo all of the losses I've had. I went out at the weekend to a family do and I did have a bit to eat but I stuck to low carb choices (even though there were plenty of desserts that before now I would have snorted up) and surprisingly, I was able to ignore the craving for the 'bad' things (never happened before on ANY diet).
    Just a thought - I have never seen any figures for how many CD dieters regain their weight compared to dieters on other forms of diets - I bet it's no more than average and may even be less. It would be interesting if anyone has the statistics to quote to all of the doubters who try to convince us that CD is faddy/harmful/too extreme etc.

    Well done. My nice GP says its 90% in the mind. When you know you have got control you are pretty much there. It then becomes a eat to live rather than a live to eat.

    However getting to that point is the problem LOL its easier to say than to do.

    Well done you!!

    Thanks for all the lovely comments guys, I really do feel so in control and have my head in the right place at last. :D

    Boardwitless - I did CD in 2007 and lost 54lbs, I didn't follow the steps to maintenance and was one of the people who put all of the weight back on. Maybe that's part of the reason I've managed to sort my head out this time?

    Richman - no, I'm not moving up the plans just yet, I do plan to start doing so in the next week or so as I go on holiday in just under 3 weeks and want to be on some kind of eating plan before then so I don't gain huge amounts of water weight. Well done on your amazing losses too! :D
