Well people do say that good comes out of bad and I think they may be right!

I had a very upsetting phone call from a close relative on Friday when out of the blue they dropped a bombshell on me which left me in a state of disbelief that they could treat me so badly.

The details don't matter but what does matter is that normally I would have thought - right what can I eat as I deserve something and would no doubt have opened a large bottle of wine and drank the lot and probably called for a chinese takeaway.

I am pleased however pleased to report that I did none of this but instead when I had stopped crying, I defiantly made my LT shake and thought no way will I let this destroy my getting slim campaign.

I consider that a real breakthrough and although I am still very upset with my family, I can take some comfort from my strength of will x

Sorry to hear that but you should be so proud to have stuck to your diet, it shows that your way of life has changed and you don't go straight for the food. Losing weight is OK, keeping it off is what is hard and that means changing the way you have come to think of food and how you use it. To not reach for the snack shows just how great you have done.

A big well done. You are dealing with emotions in a non food way. You are on your way to a new skinny life for sure.
Hope you are now feeling less sad about the event and very proud of your response to it. xx

Brilliant!!! well done,

That's the difference in the mindset of TFR.

Other diets that only reduce food intake would have us thinking what the hell its only such or such it won't hurt. Then we'd be off down the slippery slope.

I believe all the hard work you've put in previously came into play when your comfort eating mode was triggered and you wre able to call on the inner strength you've developed (that you maybe didn't realise you had) and found a different way to deal with those sudden and sad emotions.

Well done Lorraine !!!!!!
