    Hiya!

    This seems to be a common occurance on week 3

    Think of the frame of mind you were in when you began LT and get that feeling back..

    Think of the reasons your doing this and think of how you will look and feel when you reach goal!


    make yourself a nice strong black coffee, pamper yourself?

    Check out some online clothes shops and find an outfit that you want to fit into at goal!

    You can do it, hang in there xxxx

    Hi Acom

    Yes, this seems to be the norm for a lot of people. I had a little blip in my 3rd week...and to tell you the truth it wasnt nice and I didnt enjoy the horrid feelings of total failure.

    Just think how you are feeling now and how much weight you have lost to date! You keep going as you are and that will just about double in another 4 weeks...if you go and binge, well, you could be back to square one. NOt that you will put masses of weight on, BUT, this could be the slippery slope for you and you could end up just giving up LT..now, that would be sad and a waste of your effort the past few weeks.

    Like Chelly said, think of the reasons why you are doing LT? What drove you to LT in the first place? You must have thought about it and knew it was quite a difficult diet with no food whatsoever......just think, if you carry on and be 100% committed, you will be at your goal in no time at all.

    All that Chelly has mentioned will help you.....but just try and be positive and also remember food isnt out of your life forever. Think of this time as a food holiday and enjoy not having to worry about what to eat.

    I do hope you dont give in and you really remain strong. The feelings of getting fit/healthy and thinner is next to none and it makes up for the weeks of not eating!!!!

    Also, look at other people's tickers and see how much they have lost...it can be done! Plus, look at the inspirational slide show! Truely inspirational and that could be you soon.

    Take care

    Good to hear! My hubby is a great support too, and I think that is so important...mine calls me his skinny woman and every time he cuddles me now says I am disappearing..he congratulates me every day....it is so nice.

    You will get there,,,I think the fact you have said it out right that you were struggling.....accountablility is so important. There have been many times I have posted as I have been really upset and told the forum and to be sent a barrage of good wishes, etc...it just makes you want to go on.

    We are all in the same boat, just at different stages of our LT journey. Those who are further on, can remember how it felt at the beginning and the newbies are able to understand exactly what you are going through...just take all the advice, etc you can get.

    I am pleased for you, and you will waken up tomorrow feeling rather smug with yourself that you havent given in.....and your next WI will be a good one and you will be willing for the next one and the next one.

    Have a good evening!!!

    Hi, great that you have such lovely support - as the girls say it does seem to be quite common on week 3 to feel like having a blip.

    Think of your total weight loss so far... think of what you can achieve. It really can be done! I mean, look at your ticker and your fab result so far, that is really impressive, you are over a third of your way to goal :):) keep going and you can get there!

    well done you for resisting. I bet you are so glad you did now. When I got to week 3 I didnt know about this site. I remember going to the chemist and saying I can't do this any more and she reminded me how I felt at the beginning and how well I had done, and to stick it out for 1 more week. Im so glad I did because I never looked back. This diet is the best. The people on here are too, the support you received when you posted your feelings is very good in helping you through the low points. Stay strong. :)

    Welcome from me too, i find that going through clothes really helps to discover outfits that havnt fitted for some time and actually discovering clothes other than jeans, t shirts and trackie bottoms!!! also a bit of online shopping helps!!!!!:rolleyes:
