    Has any gone being 100% SS - with no breaks or cheats at all? Apart from the obvious 12 week one's?

    I've read lots of your posts and some of you marvels appear to have been on CDC for months at a time! :eek: Amazing strength and determination! x

    Nah, once I get into a routine I'm pretty focused - tbh I was more concerned with the end result

    8 months straight. Not one blip, not one cheat till it sent me to the hospital. It looks/"sounds" harder than it really is once you get into a groove. If anyone has more weight to lose I would advise having their gallbladder out first and then there is no reason not to keep to CD for ages, as many months as need be.

    If anything I think losing on other plans and maintenance are far harder than the months on SS. For example, KD finishing 4 full years of maintenance is far more impressive than her finishing 6 full months of SS in my opinion.

    Hi Ladies --

    I SS'd without cheating for the 12 weeks of Foundation when I did LL in 2008. Then, I started doing the management (as I was within a 1/2 stone of my goal weight).

    I got to my goal weight --stayed there for about three months -- then stopped exercising and started to gain back. It took me about seven months to put back on 2 stone. And, then I got panicky. So, I tried LL life, but wasn't feeling. Went back on Minimins and started reading the various diet threads -- and decided that the CD diet seemed like a good option for me.

    So, I SS'd for the first week when I started back (trying to lose the 2 stone regain with CD). Then I moved up a plan -- because I want to lose weight and learn how to manage my food at the same time. I do think not doing the whole Management program was a mistake. And, this time I waited to add in exercise and I am going to try to not overdo it. I want my exercise to be at a level I can maintain: so I learn how much I can eat and still maintain my weight.

    I also think KD's managing for four years is much more impressive - than the SSing.

    But, as far as long-term SS goes -- there is woman who is on the Lighter Life forum called BlondeLogic who SS'd for well over a year and has been maintaining for about one year. She lost an amazing amount of weight and has been very inspirational and supportive of other dieters.
