Hi Kae,

I think we would all like to eat and drink what we like without having any of the consequences but as we know it does not work like that.

So you are not alone in that regard.

Beating yourself up is futile as all that does is compound the feelings of guilt and you are more likely as a result to use this as an excuse to fall even further off the wagon.

The best thing is to try and give yourself some brownie points for having such good control under the circumstances as I am sure at other BBQ you would of ate a lot more than what you had this time?

All change is hard as we would all rather stay in our comfort zone.

There is no such thing as failure once you are doing your best to change things, you are heading in the right direction, it just takes time and a lot of love and patiences with yourself...

Each slip up is a learning experience and a time to reflect on what you can do differently the next time and what measures can be taken ahead of a party at home or a meal out to prevent going off the rails.

This is were planning ahead comes into its own.

Keeping a food diary is also a good way of tracking what you eat and keeping your focus on your diet as repetition helps normalize new habits.

Most of all believe in yourself that you can do this.

And remember if it were so easy to lose weight we would not have the problem in the first place.

Love Mini xxx

Hey you,

Just wanted to say that its ok to feel this way... I keep having down days and you have to just push yourself.

All of my friends are sizes 8-12 and tend to eat, drink and do as they like, where as I have to battle on trying to find clothes that fit and are not to drabby, and find myself pretending to be something im not. Its not very nice, you always feel the odd one out and in my case people I dont even know stare at me like im some kind of beast.

But I know I try all diets and I try to stay motivated but in the last 2 months I have felt a change in my feelings, and am trying to recognise my faults on last diets and change them on this diet. I normally become obsessed by what Im eating when I diet and am so conscious of everything I would put in my mouth to the point I would break and give in to temptation. I now have only really had 2-3 mistakes but have ben able to get back on the diet really quickly which is a massive change for me.

Have a read of my thred 'A little bit of my story' you will see how I have gone real low and had highs...

I hope this hasnt depressed you more, but wanted you to remember that most of us on here is excessively overweight or have been or are battling it and you are not alone.

Keep at it, and be proud that you only had what you did, Im a sucker for a bbq and not sure I could have witheld as well as you :)

Good luck
