    hi there,
    im at the end of day 7 and have done cd 100% and having weigh in tomorrow night i hadnt weighed myself all week but took i sneaky look tonight and am gutted ...ive only lost 4lb and ive been so so so good:cry:
    its my totm and do retain alot of fluid but thought i would have lost more than this .

    i feel like just heading straight to the kitchen and having a massive binge and starting again tomorrow:(

    ive been yo yo dieting for past 2 years and did lose 3 stone on ll this time last year and got to 11 stone felt happy and guess what ...i ATE and then found myself back to being overweight and miserable again so then ...I ATE even more.

    im so sick of my weight stopping me doing what i really want to do and making me feel like this :(

    ive come on here to stop me eating and for some words of encouragement ...PLEASE.

    i want to lose weight for my kids so i can be a carefree happy mum who joins in and doesnt stand on the sidelines wishing i could join in but being too embarrassed to!!!!

    i know time passes whatever i decide to do and i could be sitting here in the future at my goal or sitting here the same weight or bigger so why is it so hard to stick with it??

    does anyone else ever feel like this or is it just me??

    ive got to decide wheter i put myself through this or just give in :confused:

    ive done every diet thats ever come out and vlcd are the ones that work for me but i still want to eat.

    im not hungry at all its all in my head , i know that but just because im not physically hungry does mean that i really want something to eat.

    why o why is food the be all and end all in my life, everything seems to centre around it!!!
    i feel so down and know i should be proud for putting a good week in :cry:

    any advice would be greatly appreciated,

    a very upset Jo

    Oh hun I am sorry you are feeling so down. The first thing to do is nothing, just stop a moment and give yourself a chance to think this through.

    Is turning to food going to solve anything, it may make you feel good initially but how will you feel an hour from now or tomorrow morning. Compare that to how strong and proud you will feel if you get through this and stick with it.

    You've lost 4lbs, I know you hope for more and if you are TOTM then you probably have lost more but either way that is alot of weight why throw it away?

    Our automatic response when we feel down is often to turn to food, I know mine was. It was comforting, it made me feel better... or so I thought but that was the short-term quick fix, in the long run it only made me more miserable.

    Perhaps make a list of things that you enjoy that you enjoy, simple things like a hug from a loved one, or some pampering and when those food cravings strike use these to bring you some comfort instead.

    Sending hugs, you can get through this hun.

    Awww hun DO NOT GO TO THAT FRIDGE AND DO NOT EAT! You have done so well!!! and 100% for a week CONGRATS!!!
    Ok so u havent lost as much as u wanted but a loss is a loss hun and u should be proud of yourself for doing that! Plus as it is TOTM and you have retention then you should be even more proud of yourself!!!

    Keep thinkin of the reasons you started this diet and keep guzzling the water if you feel u want to eat! xxx

    the only thing thats gonna happen if u eat is u will feel 10 times worse than u do now,totm can make such a difference u can sometimes b up to 7 pounds heavier as its not real weight just fluid so that 4 pounds could b 8 pounds uve lost and anyway 4 pounds is good imagine if u lost 4 pounds every week thats pratically a stone in 3 weeks so plz dont say its just 4 pounds,stick with it girl xxxx
