    Hi all

    Im on day 11 of SS so it easy to understand how often recently I have been thinking about the diet, losing weight new clothes etc.

    Well it must have been on my mind because last night I had a dream or should I say nightmare. I had been dieting and was finally wearing slinky size 8 clothes and generally feeling fab UNTILL I popped onto the scales.

    No matter how many times I hopped on and off the scales they said the same that I weighed 18 stone - I couldnt understand if I was 18 stone exactly HOW I was fitting into size 8 clothes. My friends all decided that I was telling porkies and that I wasnt really a size 8 and was just sewing size 8 labels into my clothes.

    Well eventually I saw a doctor and had to have lots of tests - which involved my body basically being taken apart, weighed and tested. After being "put back together" the tests showed that the problem was with my right leg ..........for some reason the bone in my leg was different to the other bones in my body, it was heavier and it weighed an amazing 17 stone {meaning the rest of my body only weighed 14lbs lol}.
    There wasnt anything the doctors could do it was just a case of learning to live with it.

    At that point I woke up - how very bizzare, I must be well and truelly obsessed ..........

    Alot of dreams represent whats in our unconscious minds and can sometimes reveal your fears, ( i learned this in Psychology class, lol)

    In my first few weeks of CD i kept dreaming of eating something other than my food packs on the diet, like junk food and take aways and so ruining it completely. It would feel so real and i could feel the sadness and dissapointment in myself. But the worst was when i woke up because i wasn't sure if it had really happened and i still felt unhappy and guilty.

    I had this dream about 5-6 times and each time i thought it was real and i felt the same emotions. It kinda freaked me out, but after awhile i stopped having them, lol.

    I think this just expressed my fear of not being able to stick with the diet and also my fear of failure and perfectionism. I think it also showed how much i was craving take away, lol.

    Sweet dreams ;)

    I just thought it would be so cool to analyse your dream, but i dont think i can.

    Let me try ( i hope you dont mind )!!

    I think that the reason why you seemed to weigh more on the scales is probably that although on the outside you have lost weight you haven't accepted it and in your unconscious you still feel like a big person. I think alot of people feel this way when they lose alot of weight. It takes awhile to accept.

    Maybe your friends felt like you were telling porkies because they feel insecure about their own weight.

    I know that when you dream about your body it represents your concious identity and specific body parts only mean something if they are different. So your dream could repesent concerns about that particualr leg or maybe finding about about your leg bone being heavier is to do with balance in your life or standing up on your own 2 feet. Or maybe something to do with indendence or lacking courage.

    Also i think maybe seeing a doctor in your dream and having loads of test done represents your need for reassurance. Because even tho your friends said that they dont see anything different you still had to get it checked out by the doctor to be absolutely certain and follow his advice as he is a doctor and know what he is talking about. Also maybe him saying you should live with it means that deep deep down inside you know that this is all because you need to accept it for yourself.

    The reassurance thing relates to me because i have anxiety very bad and the only way i feel comfortable with accepting that i am not unwell is to have tests etc done. For example, i kept having bad chest pains for a few months and i was certain i had a weak heart due to taking weightloss pills containing some herb that was bad for you ( i didnt not know this at the time). Even tho the dr said i was ok i didnt belive him untill i made him let me have one of them ECGs. Then i felt fine and my chest pains went away. I still get chest pains now but only time to time due to anxiety or something i ate.

    Or your dream could just have benn a nightmare and not realted to anything else, lol.

    I hope you dont mind me trying to interpret your dream. I really enjoyed my psychology class and i have had to learn things about myself through psychotherapy/counselling to help with my depression and so it really interests me.

    If i have offended you in any way i am sorry. I know dreams are personal and i dont like to say things about people that aren't true. If you want me to delete the post then please let me know.

    Sorry again for going all Freudian on your dream, lol.

    xx :)

    I do not have any probs with you analyzing my dream in fact I thought it was quite fun - some of the things you said did ring true.

    I suffer from panic disorder too and since being on CD I havent had many attacks for some reason {was having 15 per day prior to CD}

    Ok Well I had another diet dream last night that I was told by my CDC that target weight was 22lbs and the entire dream was spent trying really hard to get to that weight and failing and restarting many many times - I did get there in the end but I was tiny and had to have my car adapted because my legs had shrunk and I couldnt reach the pedals !!

    Oh my god what is it with me and losing weight and my legs lol !!

    aww, i'm glad you didnt mind me analysing your dream. I was worried that you might be offened.

    I have generalised anxiety disorder as well as depression and i have had a few panic attacks, but its odd because i havent experienced much symptoms either since starting CD. I'm much more postive and feel better altogether. I hope you continue to have good effects from CD and no more panic attacks.

    I would love to analyse your other dream but i was meant to be in bed half an hour ago, i got a very early morning tmrw. So i will have a look at your dream tmrw, lol, this is fun, hehe.

    Hope you are doing well :) xx
