    uve had so so much going on and therefore shouldnt be so hard on urself. SSing is difficult without the added stuff. why dont u try 790 for this week and see what u think of it? u can still have a meal at the end of the day and u will be on track. i did mostly 790 in my first week and it helped loads! xxxxxxxx

    Hun, you have had a really tough time lately so these are all reasons stopping you getting your head in the right place. However you know it works, look at how well you have done so far. I think you should talk to your CDC about moving to 790. I am finding it really helps me at the mo where I am struglling not to pick at food.
    Dont give up completly you have got so far.

    Don't beat yourself up 7lbs is still a LOT of weight, maybe you should consider the 790 if you're really struggling. You have done so well and you do have willpower as you've come so far and you've poured your concerns out on here rather than just going completely off the rails and stopping the diet altogether!!!

    Big huggles whatever you decide but you have done so well and at the end of the day a loss is a loss even if it's not as much as you'd hoped for after 4 weeks!

    awwwwwl Linda, I really feel for you. Things haven't been easy have they?

    I really don't want you to give up - I know that you can do it hun. I've only lost 7lbs in the past 3 weeks so not much different to you BUT that is still half a stone in the right direction - we gotta remember that.

    I know you've said that you are an "all or nothing" person and 790 may be difficult for you but I am the same and have found 790 very manageable. I go over on the veg portion but I figure that isnt going to make a huge difference and its better than eating some chocolate. Why not just give it a try for a week? You may surprise yourself.

    Please feel free to pm if you want to chat

    Aww Linda. 790 does sound like a good option for you.

    When I saw the title of this thread I was reminded of a post I made long ago on the Cambridge forum.

    It was just thoughts, and although I approach things in a different way now, it served me well at the time. It was sent to someone else ages ago, and so you might not relate to some of it.

    Will paste it anyway

    Blimey! I talked a lot then. Haven't changed much eh :D

Karion ur reply was very helpful, thank u. Jodie ur right 7 lb loss is in the right direction, it['s just that i wanted to shift this weight as quickly as poss, still ... better a little slower than niot at all because if i quit now, it really will be the end of my weight loss journey. Thanks to all.

    aww Linda...

    Your willpower is in there somewhere. You just need to find it and give it a good telling off for leaving you to cope with this hard diet on your own.

    My losses have slowed recently too Linda, and as I said on my diary this morning, CD may be the fastest way but its still not going to just fall off. We've got to work at it.

    Hope you find the strength to stick with it Linda. Take it a day at a time.

    The 790 plan has almost the same weightloss speed. It's just some people prefer not to have food at all.

    You could do 790 for a while, then always drop back down to SS when you are ready.

    You could also have a good sulk;), eat a load, feel useless...but know you will do something...somewhen, put on a load of weight, then realise that doing nothing doesn't really help the situation.

    What do you reckon? Give 790 a go? It gets rave reviews ya know :D

    Just think of it this way - 7lbs is over 3 x 1kg bags of sugar!

    You have done really well.

    well done linda for doing so very well so far, 45lbs lost is a fantastic result. I also agree with what the others have said about you trying 790 and am so glad you have decided to do that as would hate to see you give up now

    Cool:cool: I don't blame you for sulking though. Bloomin' annoying when the scales and the head don't do what they are supposed to do!

    Nice one, good luck. I couldn't get back into SSing either, I tried for months. That little meal keeps me sane. :D
    Well, mostly lol.;)
