    :sigh: Oh dear, I'm struggling big time. I only put on 2lbs over Christmas and was so very proud of myself, especially when one came off straight away. Then it all sort of fell apart a bit and put it back on again, then I found some sort of minor mojo and then on Friday I sprained my ankle. So I reverted to norm - when frustrated, stuff yourself. So I have now put on a total of 4lbs. :break_diet:I HATE it. I LOVE my new clothes and I DON'T want to go back to those I have stuffed in the bottom of the spare wardrobe!!

    How on earth do you get back on to the diet once you have slipped off?? Any helpful suggestions, kicks up the backside or whatever will be gratefully received.

    one moment at a time. In this moment you are sticking to the plan. Tell yourself that over and over, don't listen to the chatter in your head and instead imagine how you will feel when you are at goal (not long now). Allow yourself to quickly imagine how you will feel if you drag out this last part of the programme much longer than you need to because you don't stick with it today. Then drink some water and stick with it. STay on here as much as you can. I'll be off soon for my weigh in but then I'll log back in when I return.

    Go try more clothes on. go for a walk. do something to distract yourself and try not to focus on any thoughts of food - just switch to thinking about something else as much as you can and as often as you can.

    Will be thinking of you

    Have a good long hard look at yourself naked in the mirror - is this where you want to be?? Yes? Then carry on as you are. No? Then grit your teeth, drink your water and don't accept any excuses to yourself!

    Get rid of your larger clothes too - you don't have anything to wear if you gain!

    Thanks for all the tips, ladies. No, I don't want to be here - I need to be a bit slimmer so I can afford to let it slip a bit. Otherwise I'm going to be back where I started. I am 4lbs heavier than my ticker shows as it doesn't seem to want to let me change it! Perhaps its trying to kick me up the backside.

    I really must get rid of those bigger clothes. Its on my "to do" list.

    Mary, I'm now going to tackle my own (enormous) pile of ironing :( !

    Hi Dancing
    Yes doing okay, thanks. Hopped on the scales and lost a big fat zero this week but I lost the bit I put on over the weekend and my head is now back in the right place. I feel that I can get to goal now. How are you getting on?

    I'm doing good. My head is in the right place too - the next big test for me will be getting through the weekend. The weight will come off us we just have to keep sticking to it and let our bodies do their thing.

    Oh K9, I could have written that (without the sprained ankle bit). However, I've not even managed to restart yet! I only put on 4 lbs over Xmas and 2 weeks in Lanzarote for New Year, but have put on another lb since getting home on Friday!

    I keep thinking that I'll know when my head is going to be in the right place to restart, but it's slowly dawning on me that I might have to force it into the right place!

    I threw out all of my big clothes yesterday with the grand plan of restarting today, and I managed to eat half a flapjack this morning while I wasn't even looking (if that makes sense).

    I've frequently read that restarting is hard, but didn't realise it was THIS hard!

    I'm glad you're getting back into it (you too Dancing) and hope I can grab some of your positivity.

    Hope you have a great day

    hi amber. you are still succeeding. You only stop succeeding when you give up. Don't let the flapjack be a cause for saying "ah well, I'll start tomorrow", etc. Just ignore the bit of flapjack you had and carry on being abstinant from this point forward.

    Hi Amber,
    Yes, I agree with what Dancing says. There was a time a couple of days ago when I thought that was it, I'd had enough. But then I thought about how well I'm feeling now and how many compliments I'm getting and I knew I didn't want to go back to how it was before. So you just have to accept the blip (okay, so I seem to have more blips than most) and brush yourself off and start again.

    Also, when I thought about it, I realised I hadn't been drinking the water and I didn't have the cold chicken and cottage cheese in the fridge. If I nibble throughout the day on those and keep drinking, I don't get the urge to snack on chocolate etc. So I don't have a big enough mojo to make me SS but I can lose weight this way and it will have to do. Hope you find your mojo soon. Keep posting!
