I'm Not Happy But....

....I like to think this is because I've been so determined and focused the past 13 weeks!

I developed a chest infection and due to a number of reasons, my doctor advised me to come off the diet for a week so as to let myself get better a lot quicker. I did protest and say that the diet had all the minerals and vitamins that i'd need, but he was adamant that because of certain factors to do with me healthwise, he wanted me to come off for a week.
So since Thursday, I've been eating normally. However, I feel lots better and I'm going to give it a bash at going back on the diet tomorrow.
I didn't write about this sooner on here as I felt extremely low about it and as I predicted when talking to the doctor, was extremely panicky about what to eat and stuff. I've been relatively good. Had Salad every night and I was at a BBQ last night and had 1 piece of chicken and a sausage and a small bit of potato salad. I've had a couple of bits of junk food thought if I'm honest. The good thing is, I can't eat much of anything at all as I start to feel very sick.
I wanted to go right the way through to the end of July with no cheating or needs to come off, but what can you do? I didn't come off through choice so that's one consolation.
I have missed the routine and structure my days developed whilst on this diet. When I had medication to take, it was so easy to keep on top of because I'd have a shake, then a tablet. Eating food has been awkward for me as my routine has gone to pot and I'm wondering if I've had my tablets etc.
So because I now feel a lot better and the Anti-biotics seem to have got me through the worst, I'm going to brave it and try and get back on tomorrow as I don't want to leave it too long.
I'm hoping I don't struggle too much with getting back on but at least if I do, I can come on here and talk about it.
I'm actually really missing the LT shakes. Odd I know, but at least I knew where I stood with them.
I'm going to keep doing my week by week journey and this is still week 14. I've decided to keep it this way rather than start again as this is part of my Journey. I've no desire to give up and I don't intend to.
Just hope it's not going to be too difficult!
Quite nervous really.
I did treat myself to a can of Diet Coke though just as a last minute thing tonight just to get it out of the way. But it's back onto the water tomorrow. Everything starts again tomorrow.

Really really nervous and apprehensive. :wave_cry:

Thanks nightnight! I'm really petrified as this has been my life for the past 13 weeks and to come off at a time when I was so not prepared for it was a complete blow for me.
I didn't want to but had to for health reasons, I know it was a chest infection but there's other reasons. Otherwise I'd have carried on regardless.
I'm hoping I'll be able to apply the same amount of determination as I have, but one things for sure, I've decided to celebrate my birthday AFTER. I'm not coming off this diet for my birthday now. I'm waiting til it's completed.
you sound in the right frame of mind ..:)ive learned the hard way ... when u go back on it tommorow just hold tight till keto sets in then anything after that is all in the mind ( you no it) dont listen to it .. u done 13 weeks u can do another 13 if thats what you want to do its in the mind hun tell yr self food is not 4 u right now but it will still be waiting for you when you have finished ..you have done amazing

Hi Abbie!!! Welcome back!! I've just started back myself after having to come off for a few weeks so we are in the same boat! You did the right thing, your health is first and foremost and by the sounds of it you've managed with eating really well! It's hard when its unexpected and throws you off your routine but well done for getting back in the mind frame to hit the shakes again! You can do it honey! :D xx

Well, I wish you the best of luck too Lou, I'll keep you posted on how I'm getting on and feel free to do the same hunni!
Nightnight, I'm 90% sure I'll be fine, but I don't want to be too cocky lol! I think it's better to be a bit suspicious or...cautious? I can't think of the word lol!

hi Abbie,
Best of luck with your restart, just make sure your chest infection is gone, you don't want them stopping you again soon to clear it up once more. Hope all goes well when you start. Best of luck.


Here we go again!
Hope you're feeling better now Abbie. Like you said, you had no choice but to come off it and it wasn't what you wanted so don't worry about coming off it for a while, it had to be done.

You'll be fine restarting today, you have done so well on this up to now and I just know you'll have your determination back and get straight back into it. Good luck, not that you'll need it.

Hi Abbie,
Good luck with your restart... I've just restarted last week but had an awful time (kids, husband ect!!) so didn't stick to it 100%, I lost 2 1/2 lbs at my weigh in on Wed, but I'm really looking forward to weigh in this Wed cos I've stuck to it and i'm ever so pleased with myself. You sound really determined to carry on... just remember, like I do; Will power is your greatest friend, she will keep you strong xx.

Today I'm actually suffering with D&V but I'm still going back on the LT, well....once I can stop being ill, not much point in having a shake right now as it'll only come back up :( I have the water at the ready which is the best thing for me anyway so I'll keep on with that, not allowing myself any food though. It's either the shakes or nothing at all.
