Can you feel that? That's me holding your hand and keeping you company. Mine started overnight and the past 6-8 months the 1st day has always been heavy and painful. (To add to it I've got 10 pin bowling tonight).
It ALWAYS makes me want to eat and eat so I try to find something to take my mind off food. Like going out. It's a struggle to do it and I have to really make sure full/double protection is in place but I usually feel better for doing it.
I just try and stay as upbeat and positive as I can. I dance and sing and speak to my Hubby if Im mad or upset over anything. It helps to share! If I have to go through a TOTM then he can experience it with me! Lol.
I also think back to my bigger days and now 5 1/2 stone lighter I look towards my goal weight (even though its 6 1/2 stone away) with excitement!
At class today my consultant was saying that when you are really struggling a good idea is to write down a for and against list. It is completely private to you and helps you keep your motivation. I think its a great idea and would be good to look back on, plus you can keep updating it as you go along your journey.
