    So....I started off really well. Did the attach phase and lost 12.5lb!!! 2nd week of cruise went really well too, I lost another 6.5lb wooooooo!!

    ....And then the day of the 3rd week started.. I got the flu :( I have been ill all week and not really sticking to the diet, and the scales showed it today ... +5.5 lb :eek::cry:

    Tomorrow I plan to jump right back on the 'diet wagon' but im panicking as im already back to craving foods I can't have just like before e.g. bread. I'm in need of some motivation to get me back on track :confused:

    Hope you're feeling better now. The weight gain could be water retention as a result of your flu. Try not to beat yourself up about it too much. Personally I'd get straight back into the PP/PV routine. I know someone on an earlier thread had fallen of the diet wagon and did 2x PP to jump start the diet again and it worked for them.

    Good luck :)

    Yes, I'm feeling better than before, just a bit guilty after todays weigh-in..I could almost hear the scales tutting at me! but that sounds like a good idea and hopefully should help lose any water that I have retained. Thank you!!

    Yep, I went off plan while I had a really awful cold, put on 2lbs, did a few PP days and they were off again! Whatever you do don't get into that, 'Oh well, I've cheated now so I may as well have some bread etc' and don't allow yourself to get into that nasty guilt-ridden thing...Just wake up tomorrow *if you're over your flu* and start again from scratch! You will get rid of that 5lbs and more... Just don't fall of the wagon x

    I had some carbs last week on one day when I was away working and gained a few pounds - it's gone again now though. I don't think you can lay down fat that quickly, I think it's water retention when it goes on that fast.

    Just do a couple of PPs and I bet it comes off :)

    as others have said - as soon as you feel better dust yourself down and carry on... you have done amazingly well in a short space of time - you will feel loads better once your back in the routine
