    Hi guys

    Feeling pretty bad at the moment - went to the pub with some mates. Ended up eating an onion ring which I felt bad about and didn't particularly enjoy but from that moment on, didn't know what was wrong with me but I went to the shop and bought a choc bar and then I ate ice cream and then cake and so on and so on and I don't really know why and I didn't really enjoy it but I just couldn't stop.

    Can anyone relate to this or help me try and work out what made me do it so that I never do it again?

    Feel so upset and confused about what I did and why.

    cd / ss
    i did this, i was put on 1200 suddenlt with no working up to it, i did ok for 3 days then i had 1 choc biscuit and that was it i couldn`t stop eating, it was like i had to have a taste of all foods i shouldn`t be eating.
    i`m now starting ss again today and so far i`m doing ok, just needed to get my head around it, while ss i`m ok, not looking forward to being allowed food again though

    Hi I can totally relate to this,I went out with my friend once when I was on one of my restarts,i told her i wasnt eating anything,then had a bit of popcorn chicken,that was it for me,I ate loads then carried on the next day then the next and was off the diet as quick as that,i dont know why I did it and could not stop.My advice to you is put it behind you dont carry on tomorrow and make a note of how you feel now,next time you feel tempted have a read of what youve written and ask yourself if its really worth eating and making yourself miserable.Above all dont fret about whats done just get back on track tomorrow and in a few days you will have forgotten all about it.

    It's like something took over from me and I couldn't stop and I have realised that I used to do this myself all of the time which is why I became so overweight in the first place! I really need to tackle this head on because I am worried that I won't be able to maintain my weight when I get off this diet and I am worried that my food addiction and binge eating will come back stronger than ever!!!

    I have just done a very similar thing. Mine is because there was too much pressure all at once and at a social occasion. I am due to have a weekend break and I have told hubby that, if you dont want me to remain the size of a house - I have to go back on SS asap

    Its very hard to know exactly WHY we do these things. Emotional issues around food can be so complex sometimes - a lot of us have similar triggers ie. kids playing up, work schedules tight, bills etc and just want that reward. For me, I think that as soon as I snap out of ketosis - bam! body says eat!eat!eat! and actually I wasnt that truly hungry, but boy I am now.

    I have decided that there is nearly 2 calender months to crimbletide. I have to take myself and what I am doing seriously now. Most of the lapses happen when I am not prepared ie in a social event - I find I can leave the snacks alone at home or supermarket.

    But good luck - I am getting back in the saddle again too. I KNOW this diet works and I am going to stop being p***ed off being angry with myself and do something about it.

    You game, girl? lol :)

    Dealing with emotional issues with this diet the best advice I can give you is to PM Icemousse he's a total genius when it comes to dealing with the emotions relating to food problems.

    Hi Ruth, so sorry to hear you are feeling so upset about this:hug99:
    I don't know if this helps at all but do you think it could be some kind of reaction to being so close to target? I know you have mentioned being afraid of re-introducing the food again.

    I have been thinking a lot about this too this week, i am trying to search for helpful maintenance stories and hints n tips, i found a helpful website which i think i may start using called food focus as i think i really want to be in control of what i will be eating and get to know what level of cals/carbs i can have to maintain, the idea then is to learn my levels, triggers etc.

    as for what you have eaten today, try not to dwell on it and get back on track asap.

    sending you big hugs hunny!!:grouphugg:

    hope you feel better soon!!

    Mike really has this way of helping you get your head around things and making you realise what you already know but didn't know how to explain before (if that makes sence). Putting it in basic terms, he knows how to get you to ask yourself the right questions.;)

    Thanks for all of your replies! I have just PM'ed IceMoose so hopefully he will be able to help. I am not sure whether or not it has to do with the fact that I am 10lbs away from target. I honestly completely lost control of myself which has made me feel so ashamed. I want to be someone who has control over what they eat and can maintain a healthy weight and not go into eating junk overdrive! I surprisingly did not enjoy eating any of the foods I ate. They don't taste anything like I remember them tasting. I think if this ever feels like it might happen again, I will have to try and remember what it feels like after a binge when my stomach bloats up and I am upset with myself, especially when I didn't enjoy loosing control in the first place! I need to learn stricter control most definitely!

    Well, I'm dealing with the emotional issues that lead to me overeating / binging while on SS. I hope I'll be strong enough to do this diet and therapy at the same time; I know if I put my mind to it I can.

    Hun I have been the same this weekend - I went completely to pot since yesterday morning - I've had all sorts of naughty stuff and reading this post yes I am a bit stressed. I am still training a newbie at work, one of my cars has it's MOT tomorrow & if it passes then I have to tax it, my Cat might be poorly and we wait to hear from the vets tomorrow if she has kidney probs and all my money has been used up this month - I think I have about a fiver spare this month and that never happens to me.

    I do really relate to this:
