Well, this is my last week of SS...ever!! Well that is what my consultant says, and I like that idea. This is my third whirl at CD, with gaps of years in-between but still ending up the same weight. So, the idea of not having to return to SS is thrilling. I love the idea of adding to, rather than taking away on this diet. Don't get me wrong, I love my milkshakes, soups and bars, but I have to learn to live in the real world so am quite excited to be adding a bit of chicken and salad next week. I am taking this time to really focus on how, why, what I eat, rather than the way I behaved before. As soon as I thought I was 'finished' I promptly went straight back to unhealthy eating. Albeit a slow decline, I still ended up where I was before without any thought behind it at all. I am planning to go all the way this time. Last attempts I stopped waaay before my ideal weight/BMI. Just so tired of not being able to buy off the peg clothes, waving a long goodbye to my much loved denims and having a high and low tide in my bath because I can hardly fit.. Note to self: I hope I always remember how great I actually feel on CD. I sleep like a baby, have more energy and feel so much more bright eyed. When I'm binging I feel ill, sometimes hung-over from too much wine and cheese, bloated, sorry for myself...blah blah...I could go on and on. Does anyone else feel amazing? I know it's not easy, but heck the results are worth it!
