    Well done you!

    Don't be scared - everyone seems to feel this way entering conso!

    Just take it a day at a time, it's just cruise with extras, so you can take it a step at a time - start by going to a 6pv/1pp schedule, then add in the bread, cheese, gala and starch as you get more confident.

    Remember - if you see the scales go up all you need to do is go straight back a few steps to cruise, so it's hard to "pile it back on" if you keep to that commitment.

    thankyou so much for replying. i will give it a go and like you say i know how to pull it back if i do start to gain again, do you have the slices of wholemeal a day or just if you really want it? i think its thwarting bread and pasta that scares me the.most. also do you now always have veggies aside from your pp day?

    I started conso three weeks ago and I've been too scared to weigh myself until this morning. Bit the bullet, hopped on the scales and I've actually lost another pound!
    Have faith :)
    Oh and well done!!! You've done fantastic!! Be proud :) x

    I have never gone back to pasta - I just don't fancy it anymore.
    I also dislike supermarket bread now as well, so I tend to buy artisan bread and freeze it to get my two small slices a day.

    Hi, sorry to hijack your thread, but do you have to eat all the allowed food on the consolidation phase every day? Ie 2 slices of bread, the cheese etc or is it that you can if you want to?
    Thanks in advance
    Sue

    Sue - you are supposed to eat these extra foods, so that you are reintroducing carbs and fat to your diet in a controlled way.

    Ditto Atropos! There was much excitement for my first pasta meal and I just didn't enjoy it. Only have it very, very rarely now (small amount in soup, for ex).

    As for bread, I prefer Dukan bread now. Tastes have definitely changed.

    Most of us have lost in the first stages of Conso. Just don't go mad with your gala meal (1 portion not 3;)) and you'll be fine!
