Today was day 4 of trying to get back into SS. I was doing well, but have just picked at baked beans and cheese. I seem to be able to do the first few days, then it falls apart. This is the 3rd attempt to get back on ss.
oh honey, i hear ya but the only thing i can say to you is just put that behind you and have your next pack as normal. drink loads of water and try to keep your mind off food. believe me i know how hard it is BUT think of how you will feel in the morning if a) you didn't continue eating or b) you did continue to eat.... i know i'd rather the a) feeling in the morning!!
try to distract yourself for a little while now and hopefully that will keep ya going!!
i'm restarting again tomorrow so i'll be in the same boat and begging for help!!!
I'd go down the distraction route myself. Try to get yourself away from the situation that is making you eat. If you can't physically leave then distracting your brain will help.
You stopped yourself at the picking stage which is really postive that you had the self control to do that so well done you
You have done so well and 30 secs weakness in nearly 4 days still sounds like a success story to me. Please try to remeber that contrary to popular belief there are degrees of success, it isn't an all or nothing concept.
So you have had the scare you needed, time to jump back on the wagon and continue the success that you have already engineered for yourself
Well girls as you say you must put this behind you. I think as soon as routine sets in with school you will be fine its tougher at holiday times for mums.
Why day 3/4 its because this is when all the glycogen store has gone and your body has to burn fat for energy, this is hard work, so your brain tricks you into thinking you are hungry and makes it really difficult for you.
If you can ignore this trick of the mind you will go into ketosis as the fat burns and your appetite will go and you will start to feel really well as the ketones kick in.
