New start every day this week.....

#1
Hi All,

I lurk about these boards a bit, but dont post very often at all.

I was just reading peoples thoughts about re-starting, and it is all sooooooooo true. I have been trying to re-start all week - and managing to get to tea-time at best, then giving in and having some food - but not the sensible dinner I could have - whatever rubbish I can cram into my gob.

Anyway, I am booked in to see my CDC tonight, and am giving myself an ultimatum of sticking with it 110% or going with the 'normal, healthy eating' that my brain is trying to trick me into doing (I cant stick with that, either!!).

I look forward to moaning about the difficulties of re-starting with anybody who wants to listen! But this is mainly a little diary to myself to remind me not to give in - feel free to pass on any tips!

Hi,

This could have been written by me. Know exactly what I should be doing. Very angelic until tea time, then a little devil.
Last night had to go to a football presentation for my son, I ended up wearing what I could fit into rather what I wanted to wear, felt very uncomfortable (not from the clothes) just because I was so unhappy and selfconcious.
Like you I am neither following CD or a healthy eating programme properly. Time to stop p*ssing around. Today has got to be the last start, I can't carry on like this. :mad:

Good luck with your journey.

If you are struggling to get on sole souce then talk through the other plans with your counsellor.

790 is a great way of losing weight quickly but with a nice little evening meal.

The 1000 and 1200 are also great ways of losing weight and you eat 3 meals a day so have a look in your yellow book and chat it through with your CDC.

Absolutely!

When people think of VLCDs they tend to focus only on SS - but there are plans to suit just about every dieting 'need'.

The trick is to find the plan that suits you best.

Hi

Thakns for your replies, I haven't been able to get on PC since last week.

I am proud to announce that I am now on day 4 of SS, and feel fine. I have upped my water lots, and have had 3-4 litres every day since friday. I am back with full willpower.

My CDC, bless her is doing SS this week with me - I have that to motivate me as well. We are both aiming for 7lbs loss this week - 5 of which I had put on whilst messing about with the diet.

Re-start weight 13.3 Thurs 17/5 (fully clothed in the evening!)
This morning's weight 12.9.6 (nekkid after morning wee!)

CDC's scales usually add 1-2lbs as I weigh in the evening, and I dont think she would appreciate it if I stripped off!! So, so far, on target this week.

Just need to keep this up.

*glugs the last of litre 2 for today*

thanks for the support - it has been great reading you posts.

Well done, it sounds like you have made a fantastic start. Keep it up.

morning!

Hi again,

Down another lb since yesterday. Feeling good. OH is away this week so have the house to myself - meaning there is nobody but myself to stop me raiding the cupboards.....

But, last night had my soup (cant decide if I like the broccoli and cheese or not!) and pottered for a bit then had an early night. Boring, yes. But I was also in control.:D :D

Feeling more energetic today, so will keep myself busy tonight with exciting things like housework. But if it keeps me away from the fridge, then all good.

I resisted cheesecake yesterday. Lemon cheesecake. My favourite. I admit to having a sniff - but realised I didnt want to spoil my SS efforts as it has been soooooooo hard getting back into the swing of it.

Hope you are all doing well - and feeling positive. I find that being positive helps to keep that chatterbox quiet. I have named mine Marvin. He has been fairly quiet so far, and lets hope he stays that way. Or I might have to drown him in another litre of water. Speaking of which..........

Take care

Okay, so despite my last post being positive, I have spent the last week eating just about anything I can lay my hands on.

Put on a few lbs, but am hoping it is just water - and pancakes (of all things!!).:(

I am back to the swinging between 100% CD and wanting to go back to WW equally as much.

I know I can shift this extra weight with CD. I just need to find my focus again. I frustrate myself with to-ing and fro-ing, and between each decision I have a 'last supper'. It isn getting me anywhere. This is the beginnings of how I got this size in the first place.

So, red-faced: my weight this morning - dead on 13 stone. I am due to see my CDC tomorrow, but in fact have a whole week's worth of packs, so might re-arrange until next week.

onwards and downwards.

My next post will be more positive - and tonight, there will be no last supper. Possibly some chicken and veg instead!

take care

Hiya

I know all about Last Supper Syndrome as have been a victim of it myself. I've just started reading "overcoming Binge Eating" by Christopher Fairburn and am finding that really helpful and inspiring, and half the book is self-help (CBT etc) so would recommend that. Also speak to your CDC - you could start on S3 and do that for a couple of weeks then gradually move down to SS, so you ease into it rather than feeling initially deprived of food

Morning,

It all went to pot. So, here I go again. I am even boring myself with starting, giving up, re-starting etc.
 
#13
At least you are not giving up ..............

One day it will click for you and off you'll go and there will be no stopping.

1st time round I did SS for 4months ... no cheating - my A-B via motorway. This time I'm half a stone off .. half a stone on ... but not giving up and turning back ... I'm still going to get to point B but via the scenic route!!! This week i've done really well and lost 5lb - so hope I'm on a dual carriageway!!!

Good luck!

Thanks for your words of support.

I cant believe how undecided I am. First thing this morning I was all for having branflakes and a banana a la weight watchers, thgen thought: no, today can be my new start.

I had a chocolate shake, and enjoyed it. Now, I am at work (shhh dont tell my boss!) and seriously considering giving up CD and going to WW. But then I think I can actually lose with CD, and with WW I would lose half a pound a week if I was lucky. So now I am back thinking of sticking with CD.

Now whilst I am having these to and fro thoughts, I havent eaten anything, so havent given up my SS re-start. But in my head, I might as well have eaten. I dont understand me.

So: I am torn between wanting to lose weight (quickly or not - just get there in the end) and wanting to eat. BUT I dont want to be out of control eating rubbish (which I have been in between 'diets').

You know, I think I have answered my own question (I knew there was a reason for me babbling on here!!). I want to lose weight. I need to lose weight. The only way I can do it is to use CD. I have tried and tried all sorts of diets, and given up due to lack of success quickly enough. Even if I can use CD to get me to lose SOME weight every week, that is surely better than messing about getting nowhere.

Plan: See me CDC this week and see how I go doing 790 or SS depending on how I am coping.

Thanks for letting me vent. It helps - honest. And if any of you are reading and feeling the same - please write it all down - I hope we can get through this together.

See - am much more positive at the end of typing this than I was at the beginning!

Take Care

I did exactly as you're doing .... for far too long for me to think about or write down! For some reason (maybe Dublin!!) this time it has clicked and I feel like I'll go all the way this time!! I really hope so - but if not, I'll get up dust myself off and start again - and again .... and again if needs be!!

Vent as often and as much as you want - that's what this site is all about.

790plan is also a good option and has nearly as good results but adds a meal to the equation. It helps lots of people - see how you feel.

Just had a read of your thread.... cheesecake!!

My favourite thing! I have cheesecake flavoured Cambridge shake by adding 1/4tsp of sunshine orange water flavouring to my vanilla shake! I make it up with lots of ice and drink with a straw.... hope this helps with the cravings.... it makes an excellent mousse too!

Beverly -

Thanks for your support, I am hoping to stick with it for GOOD this time. But even if I struggle with the journey, I hope to get to slimness eventually!

Todays plan............... take it one hour at a time and drink as much water as possible!

take care

ooooh I might try that!! Anything to fool me into thinking I am having a treat. Although I actually really like the chocolate and chocolate mint shakes.

Morning,

Yesterday went okay despite me eating some wafer thin chicken (which I dont even particuarly like).

Today am determined to SS completely. I am seeing me CDC tonight for more supplies.

This time next week I hope to be feeling better about myself and not feeling so much like a slug.

Onwards and downwards..................

me again!

I hope anybody reading this doesnt get too bored.

Am posting because I am having a will I/wont I wobble. I have had 2 shakes so far today and am no hungry - but I might be thirsty. I am feeling a bit light headed and wobbly and this would normally where I would crack and have something to eat to stop the low blood sugar feeling.

BUT I am not going to do that today. I will have another 500mls water and take it easy for 5 mins. I should feel better soon.

This weekend should be safe too. No plans involving food/drink/anything much really! I am going to do a major housework blitz tonight - how exciting on a Friday night. But OH is going out and I need to keep myself busy. Then I will reward myself with a lovely bubbly bath and a good book.

Or I may crash out and not have the energy to do any of that!

I cant wait until the moring when I can see the effect my willpower has had when I step on the scales.
