    Lisa honey :)

    I agree with Annie here, could you look at doing AAm or 790 just to take some pressure of yourself for a short while?

    The worst bit here would be that you fall into that awful cycle (which most of us know) of feeling like a failure so eat.. so feel more like a failure.. so give in and eat more and stop posting.

    You CAN pull yourself back and work out a weight loss programme that suits you as an individual. Put down the stick hun and please stop beating yourself ok?

    If you can't make a decision tonight which I would guess is pretty likely while you are feeling like this and probably not wise....then....stick around on here, enjoy having a look around the site, look at the Inspirational photos, have a laugh on the joke thread, jump into any thread and have a chat and let us all prop you up until bedtime.

    Lacey..xx :D

    Hi Lisa, I am sorry to hear that you feel so bad. Hang in there - you can do it. You have been given some fantastic advice in the replies to your post here - why not sleep on then decide what to do. I always find that decisions made in haste are wrong decisions. Give yourself time then if CD really isn't for you, at least you will know you have given it your best shot.
    We ate with our friends tonight. They had a gorgeous roast lamb dinner with all the trimmings. I had a CD vegetable soup! I was VERY tempted - but I was so proud of myself when I got through the meal without giving in!!
    I shall still be watching out for you whatever you ultimately decide.

    Hi Lisa

    I think we started on the same day (Tues), I have been finding it tough too and I'm still feeling hungry despite being in Ketosis, (maybe I'm not drinking enough water, dunno??).

    Its not easy to stick to the diet especially when cooking for a young family, but do try to persevere, give it 2 weeks and maybe a good weight loss will inspire you to keep going.

    Good luck for Tuesday, my 1st WI is on Tues too!

    To echo those above - I really think that it would be a shame to abandon cambridge completely because you have been struggling with SS.

    In an ideal world we would all have the resolve to do SS and stick to it with no cheating - but then in an ideal world we would never have put on weight in the first place :rolleyes:.

    There are pleny of folks on mini's who are having fabulous losses and the some of the other Cambridge steps. Soon To Be Gorgeous has used the 790 plan for about 6 months I think and her average loss over time is pretty much the same as many of those on SS. One of my friends who is on 790 is regularly losing 3lb a week which is equivalent to a stone a month :cool:. Another one of my cdc's, who was a slimmer of the year semi-finalist :clap:, lost all her weight on the 1000cal plan and she lost on average 2-3lb per week.

    790/1000 plans would give you back the joy of cooking, enable to to join in with a Sunday lunch (roast chicken breast with veg - you could even use a veg soup packet to make gravy) while still having good losses.

    Whatever you decide I hope you find a solution that suits you :).

    If this helps, try and have the three Cambridge and if you need to nibble have bits of protein and maybe at your mums eat a bit of veg and the meat. I find that this way of dieting has meant a slower weight loss but I still feel great and happier

    Well done, Lisa, you are showing real strength in coming to a decision like this. You can do this! I don't envy those of you who have to cook for others and watch them eat. There is only me and Himself at home now so it is much easier - especially as he does all the cooking anyway. You have to be so much stronger than I do for that very reason - and that is why I have found the start so much easier.
    I am still looking out for you - I really want you to succeed. Remember you told me that you want to lose weight so you can play with your little girl and not puff and pant all the time. Imagine yourself doing just that - and you will get there. If you can actually vision something in your mind, a goal to achieve, you will have much more chance of achieving it.
    YOU CAN DO IT!
