    Well hello again to all! I've had a not so fun 2 weeks grr I ate too much hoping at some point i'd enjoy it and I didn't....noting tasted as good as I remembered it and to make matters worse I put on 8 pounds :eek::eek::eek::eek: yep silly me. So I really need to get things back on track and it's been such a hard day even last night I was awake until 3am pondering what diet do I do next! I did pilates last night and it wasn't easy I realise I get dizzy easy no matter what I eat and i'm very worried I'll faint doing pilates if I restart now. So I though i'll do a diff low carb but Atkins makes the most sense to me. Maybe I can eat some carbs on pilates day 5g extra or something? Anyone any advice? The good thing is I get a loss of vision first so I have a warning before i collapse but I've never collapsed lol just scared of it. I have naturally low blood pressure so I know what causes this I've been checked out for it before mri's an all!
    So restart tomorrow and fingers crossed my little brain will let me :confused::confused::confused::confused: If i wasn't already seeing a therapist i'd tell myself to go!!

    Hi Jella, maybe the 8 pound gain is a lot of water. I know a gain is a gain but maybe some of that is water and like Laura C said when you go back to old eating habits and it sounds like maybe a bit of binging, that you are going to put weight back on.

    I agree with you should go to a doctor and find out about the fainting and dizziness. Maybe there is a supplement you can take or eat more food with iron in them..

    I'm doing alow carb diet not necessarily following atkins to a "t" because I do eat some fruits and low carb breads that I've ordered. It has worked for me and I usually stay under 40 carbs per day. usually I stay closer to 20 carbs per day.

    Thanks guys, I did do a few binges so weight gain is to be expected! But ya a lot is prob water and i've restarted today and feel more positive then I did a month ago which is odd. But I really want to learn this time to bring sugar back in slowly and sweeties and crisps are not part of my future cuz I want to mantain my weight when i'm done. My dizzyness isn't helps by my anxious nature I used to get panic attacks so I really don't help myself but I'll go easy on myself with the excercise to begin with.
    I've just had 2 yummy big eggs and i'll be out most of the day...have a drawing class and need to help putting up an exhibition and also have to register for my college course, I start childcare later this month. And i'm doing a night class in Dutch lol have Dutch inlaws for 10yrs might help to speak it already. I hope my busy days will help so I won't be home here thinking about food and feeling sorry for myself!!!
    Thanks for the advise I know I annoy myself so sorry if i've annoyed you guys here too!!!!:D

    Certainly sounds like it could be stress related, Jella, I have similar experiences. It's amazing how much stress can affect you physically and in quite strange ways that don't immediately seem related. I still agree with Laura though and think you should check with a doctor just to be on the safe side.

    Feeling pretty good today :D Have 6g in already and having fillet steak and broccoli for dinner yum yum. The sun is shining clothes are outside drying and i'm cleaning the house too. Getting the bathroom pulled out tomorrrow we've decided to get a new suite in there one where the bath goes wall to wall not leaving a stupid gap hehe and hopefully a sink with some storage under it. I'm excited but nervous there is always hidden costs with these things! Right off I go and get some work done :D then off to exhibition i'm donating all my crap food for the event hehe

    Oof, now getting the bathroom done, that can be stressful! Although it sounds like you don't need the whole room & pipes ripping out like what we did, and won't get left without a bath, shower OR flushing toilet for almost a week (!!!)

    Glad you're feeling better, hon. You'll soon be able to luxuriate in your new bath, my no. 1 stress-buster, that.

    Thanks LM we are taking everthing out but not moving anything so just a new suite in. I'm watching a tub on e-bay but not sure if it needs wooden support or legs grr but i'm buying my sink from ikea with storage under it and going for black and white tiles not sure to go half way up the wall or all the way have no showers so half way should be ok hehe
    Had a good day today came in at 21.5g even at the exhibition where there was lots of goodys I did well sipping my diet 7up. I had some low carb wraps and they were very nice indeed :) Right off to bed now!
