    Thought I'd start up a thread here as well as my diary to give me a bit of inspiration!!

    Day 2 today.....had 4½ packs yesterday and 4 litres of water. Hoping to up the water today a bit and have 3½ packs.....

    I want it to work so badly

    Good luck hun - I feel like the queen of restarts at the moment.... must restart every monday.....:rolleyes:

    I have a plan though..... I know it sounds crazy for a grown woman but I'm going to get my dad to weigh me every week as I'm not going to a CDC at the mo (loads and loads of surplus....:rolleyes: ) - I can't bear to see the disappointment on his face.... much like when I was a child - plus he'll be really strict with me which is what I need....lol!!!!

    Hope everything goes well for you......:D

    Love

    All the best Amanda. You've done so brilliantly before....just hang on in there and get those final pounds off once and for all:)

    That's a great idea, getting your Dad to weigh you Mich!

    Hey Loopy, you go girl. I did the same as you but weighed myself. I saw my CDC yesterday and even though i was heavier than last time I had still lost and she was dead pleased to see me again :D x

    You are not useless.. you are just finding it difficult right now..... you have done so brilliantly and you can again,, just so long as you keep on trying you will get the results you want eventually.....sooner or later, it doesn't matter which, so long as you keep pluggging away at it it will happen...

    Thinking of you, love xxxxxxx:)

    Thanks Mandy...but I feel useless.....

    Sometimes I get as far as 10 at night then something tells me to eat and I just can't fight it off.

    On my 2nd half pack of the day now....been very busy in the garden and keep coming in for a rest and a cigarette

    All I can do is keep on trying

    Summers coming...so hot today and nothing fits me!!

    I don't want to be stripping off with all this flesh showing anyway....so ashamed of myself

    Hiya honey

    Don't be so hard on yourself - you keep on trying, and that's the most important thing. Instead of sole-sourcing (which would also find incredibly hard to do again too), why not do the 790 or even the 1000 cals plan instead? You'll still lose weight quickly, but you won't be putting yourself under the same kind of pressure as you do when you sole source.

    Give that a week or so - and then once you're losing weight again and feeling more in control you can drop down to sole sourcing if you feel like it.

    Please don't give up now .. not when you've come so far and done so well in the past.

    I'm always here if you need to talk, whinge, cry ... or whatever.

    Love

    That's what happens to me when I am doing the packed lunches. I pop a chewing gum in and chomp on that, then, as soon as I've finished them I go and soak in the bath!
