    Hi peeps! I am really struggling motivation wise at work at the moment.

    Not sure if it's because my hols are coming up or just because of the changes that CD has given to my life.

    All I want to do is go home and get some work done on my x-trainer, walk the dog and watch weight loss stories on telly! :eek:

    It's like I've transfered my work motivation to CD and can't get it back. Does anyone else have this problem?

    I'm also completely obsessed with clothes and would spend all day shopping if I could. I know that I need to work in order to pay for my holiday and clothes shopping, but my mind just isn't on work at the moment.

    Any tips?!

    Do you work with many people you two?
    I only have 1 person and she's on holiday. Think that's the problem really.
    Right, am going to force myself to do some calls now!

    Yes I work with lots of people .. well Im out on reception now so kind of on my own but people stop and chat to me etc. I used to be a PA to some of the partners but after coming back the second time after maternity and only working 2 days a week they put me out here. Its fine though....... x

    Megan - I used to have the business from home and had to get offices because I found it so hard to work!

    Curly - I bet it's nice being on reception and chatting to people as they come and go. Do you miss being a PA though?

    I actually think that doing SS takes all your motivation and concentration.
    The other thing I find when I'm SSing is that I become a bit less intelligent... it takes me longer to figure out problems.

    The only thing I can think, with any clarity, is what I will look like at goal, what clothes I will buy, what people will say and how I will feel.
    My favourite activities are trying on the clothes that are now only 1/2 a size too small and going to shops to try almost everything they have... and leaving without buying anything!!!

    I'm not the only one either, I have a friend who is also a marketing professional and she said it took all her concentration and motivation to successfully complete this diet!

    That is actually really good to hear. I feel a bit better knowing it's not just me!
