    Of course it is worth it donnamarie, you need to just take it 1 day at a time. Do not dwell on what happened yesterday start a fresh and get back on track properly! :)

    SS is hard and the first few days are the hardest but once you have got past them you will be A ok and on the road to recovery haha - well slimness :)

    Chin up girly it gets easier! xx

    If I remember correctly - I ate a chinese on my first night of SS:eek:

    I got straight back on it and lost 10lbs in my first week so it is totally doable.

    Set yourself som mini goals to help keep you motivated.

    Good luck

    My first week on CD I was working nights...so I was tired and my heart wasn't totally in it. I kept saying to myself I'd start 'properly' after that week of nights. My first 2 days I had chips for dinner...I then seemed to get the hang of the SS - except on day 4 when it was a rough night at work and I had chocolate...and all through the week I was drinking sprite here and there...and as sprite contains citric acid...I doubt I ever got into ketosis!! I wasn't expecting to lose much as I know I'd not done it properly...but knew I'd be more focused when I was on days... :) When I stepped on the scales at my first week WI...I'd lost 13lbs!! So, even with a rough start - you can do it!! You just need to focus on your goal and you'll do it...it's not been easy and I had had a few 'blips', but now I feel more determined than ever to do it!!

    Good luck hun!! You'll do great - just focus on your goal!!

    Thankyou so much for your kind words spranglyrainbow.
    Thats made me feel so much better.
    I worked an early shift 2day at work 6.30am - 2pm, i'm a forecourt cashier so lots of temptation right infront of me!
    But i made it through! All i had was 2 bottles of water and 1 chocolate tetra!
    Home now just having a choc mint shake.. ummm nice.
    For some reason my mind keeps telling me.. " oh its saturday night lets chill out infront of tv get takeaway and munchies and start tomorrow!"
    But tomorrow's never coming for me!!
    I really got to stick to this now today, how do you switch off and ignore your mind?
    Cause usually before i know it ive given in and eaten! Need to stay focused! Think im gonna sit here all night!
    Everyone keeps telling me the 1st few days are the hardest, it gets easier.... and i so hope thats true!
    Cause ive got alot of weight to lose so i need to be s/s for a while yet!

    There is no way of switching off your mind - you just have to keep your mind on the prize!! Last week, for some reason I had really bad mood swings. I burst out crying when everyone else was eating and I couldn't. I was frustrated, not because I was hungry, but because I wanted to eat!! Being someone who used food for comfort...it's hard when that comfort is taken away from me. Now I look to friends, books, pretty new clothes and pampering myself for comfort!! It's hard and some days I want to give up...but my biggest want is to shift this weight, and that is what I have to remember...make little targets...treat yourself when you reach them (not with food haha) You will soon get there!!! We both started with about the same amount to lose...and we'll do great and be slim in no time hehe I suggest reading Skinny *****...that book even got me pouring my beloved Coke Zero down the drain!! It's an eye opener!!

    Also, one quote I read on here sticks with me...
    "I know that that tastes like (whatever your vice is - takeaway, pizza, cake), but I don't know what being slim feels like!"

    I think it's about time I tried something new...and that new thing I want to try...is being slim!! :)

    We can do it hun!!!

    Well done!! Well done!!

    Ketosis should now be kicking in so protect that ketosis with your life as the protection it gives you from hunger makes the diet the brilliant thing it is.

    10 pounds is superb!!

    Just think by Christmas you will be 3 to 4 stone lighter at least if you drink the water and just hang in there!!
