    im half way through week 10 and am getting soooo bored...

    i really want to make it to week 12 at least as i set this as my intial goal (3.5 stone in 12 wks to make me 10,7).

    BUT i am so desperate to eat again.

    is anyone else thinking of when to end CD/SS and do a diff diet to lose the rest and/ or maintain?

    aaarrgghhhh bored bored bored... and cold and hungry lol :cry:

    If you're feeling like you are starting to struggle - why dont you move up the plans to either SS+ or 810????
    I'm now doing SS+ and have been since last week and finding it luvly - I'm just doing the 4pks plus milk but am really looking forward to eating again.....

    i've done the ss+, 810 and now on 1000plan. No weight loss on the 1000, but have lost 4" over 2 weeks. Don't ditch the cd just yet.

    Just to echo what others have said, why not give one of the plans a whirl no need to necessarily switch to a different diet.

    I agree, move up through the diet first. I plan to follow a low carb diet when i finnish to keep control of my weight as suagar and flour are real triggers of mine.
    keep going though hun, you are doing well!

    hi cd08. I've been busy for a couple of days so only just catching up on a few posts. Checking in to see how you are doing.

    There is a big difference in the mindset of those on LL and those on CD ... those on LL who are supporting a person who posts something like yours rally behind and encourage people to keep going, look how far you have got, remember to look at the end goal, remember how you will feel when you achieve it. Remind you why you chose to do a vlcd etc etc. Those on CD seem to offer the option of moving up a plan when they post their support and encouragement.

    I find this interesting and I find it even more interesting that those on LL can dig deep and continue through this period without having to introduce food.

    Yes, of course you can move up the plans temporarily, permanently, whatever ... but just be aware it isn't the only answer to the situation.

    You have done sooooo well

    Yes, I've noticed that difference too Dancing and it is interesting. My thoughts are that it may stem from the outset. When you do LL you make a committment to abstain for 100 days, there is no such committment with CD and so in some way can feel never ending. The psychology of LL may be different because you have made that promise you should stick with it. The reason why I always offer plans as an alternative is because I worry that getting into a cycle of SSing, cheating, feeling guilty for cheating, trying again, cheating etc etc is such a negative place. If you give yourself permission to eat by doing a plan you remove that element of negativity and can feel good about yourself and feel like you are succeeding. Am I making any sense, think I may be waffling!

    no, I understand what you mean and it is about the psychology. I understand the theory and it is one I've had to adopt myself while on CD. But I wonder if somehow we can capture the psychology of LL even though we aren't on it. People on LL "cheat" too .... but there isn't the same degree of guilt that comes from it. People realise it is a learning process and, I'm going back to something I posted a couple of months ago, I wonder if there is something really vital about the group mentality (by that I mean on the forum). We all know about the strength of peer pressure and it can be a really positive tool, not necessarily a negative one.

    I'm at risk of waffling ... I'll let people read into this as they wish rather than trying to explain it tonight.

    This site is full of people, like me who have done so well on CD (or equivalent) but perhaps have concentrated too much on the negative aspects of the diet rather than the positives: feeling cold, getting fed up, craving food, etc and have slowly stoppped the diet, perhaps thinking that it wouldn't have the inevitable consequences. Only, to kick themselves when they put on the weight and wish that they had stuck at it because now they have to go back to the beginning instead of being in maintenance etc.

    Somewhere on here Icemoose has written a brilliant article about the differences in approach we have: there are those that see diets as prison, and are always looking for an escape, and others that see it as a means to an end (he puts it so much better than that), and we have to get the mindset right, stop seeing a diet as a punishment and see it for what it is; the means to freeing ourselves from the prison which we have created for ourselves by being overweight.

    If we could bottle the enthusiasm, commitment and motivation that we have on day 1 we could easily get through any diet. But in truth, it's difficult to be that keen when what we really want is to eat like pigs but be slim and beautiful. The choice therefore is ours, short, sharp shock, or a lifetime of misery? I know which one I prefer, but it doesn't mean that this process is any easier for it.

    In short, stick to the plan, and don't be like me, who now has to re-lose the weight all over again because I gave in too easily.

    cambridge*diet*08 Please dont give up, you have come so far hunny, look at what you have achieved? This diet is the best diet out there, and the losses are great, i did atkins and yes i lost but made me so ill with all that fat! Was awfull...

    If you want to eat hunny, why not try adding a meal bit of chicken every night with a pack used as a sauce? i have chicken breast, with chicken and mushroom pack made thick.. i ts gorgous then have a bar later on.... ?

    please dont give up though, think about it hard, in 3 months you will be at goal stone a month maybe more..

    BUT what eve you decide, i wish you luck.... xxxx

    ok i feel soooo much better today...

    am going to continue ss'ing until week 12 (2.5 weeks more). I will then re-assess how i feel and consider moving up the plans or continue ss'ing til BMI 25.

    so heres to a fresh week... the weekends always make me feel a bit demotivated. week days are so much easier for me.

    thanks ladies for all your replies, i guess i was just having a whinge lol xxx

    i wish i was losing weight at your rate but im losing 4 or 3 or 2 and even one a week....all i can say is how many diets do we get bored on and then quit and become fatter... this diet gives us everything we need and is doing magic on your body.. dr atkins died fat WHAT DOES THAT TELL YOU HUN..my personal advice would be to up the plan to 790 or 1000 cals a day or go on a green and red diet which wont give you results like this..as your getting smaller your mind is playing tricks telling you ohhh ONE LITTLE NIBBLE WONT HURT.. but we all no different..hold on hun and eat your tasty meals when your slim and happy on both sides of your body xxx

    thanks hotty, i know everyone is right and i need to stick with it.
    i agree about my mind playing tricks. i was whingeing on a sunday when i would normally be stuffing my face with a big roast dinner. i guess old habits are dying hard and thats what i wanted to do yesterday when i posted this.
    weekdays are easier for me as i am home alone and no plans for going out and socialising... just me and my shakes! just how i like it... for now!!!!!

    yippee dancing is back with me. the support works both ways and you have provided me with some sound advice on more than a few of my whinges, sorry i mean posts!

    glad you are back with me! hope those kittys are behaving themselves... xxxx
