    Argh!!! I am fighting the urge to eat so badly now. I can't get my mind off chicken! I just want to eat chicken, chicken and more chicken!!!

    This happened last night too but I fought it off. Tonight it seems so much harder! I have gone to the fridge so many times and opened it. I have been about to grab cheese, peanut butter, yoghurt, anything but stopped myself only to go back again 10 minutes later.

    Why can I not get my mind off chicken? It's so pathetic :( I feel like a greedy fat pig :cry:

    No I haven't but I would feel like I had failed even if I did a SS+ day.

    I'm also worried it will start me on the slippery slope to cheating!!! x

    Stick with it hun, I know it doesn't seem like it but this feeling will pass, you'll come out the other side stronger and seriously proud of yourself. Allow yourself to crave it and feel the empowerment of resisting.

    SS+ isnt failing lol :)

    Its literally like another 130 odd calories but you could replace that by taking away a CD meal?

    Ive lost 38 pounds in 11 weeks now doing ss+ thats including 2 weeks of food'ing in Florida lol

    Unless its gonna push you over the edge in the land of proper food then yeah steer clear but it IS an option and its not cheating lol x

    Thank you Porgeous, I am trying so hard. I have made myself a mousse and it is setting in the fridge. Last night I had a mousse and then the craving passed so fingers crossed it will work again! A mousse in the evenings may have to become my craving beating tactic!

    I love looking at your two photos-it really reminds me that it can be done and the result is so worthwhile! x

    Thank you! Good tactic with the mousse, even now in maintenance I always have something later in the day around the time when I might normally have started picking at less wise choices. Think of it as a learning curve you are discovering when your vulnerable times are and finding ways to deal with them. It's not always easy but so worthwhile hun.

    Keep on keeping on xx

    Thanks guys!

    I am now filling up on water while I waiting for my mousse to set. I think I will get the bars next time because when I had them before, it was something to look forward to each day. I used to chop them up into little bits and eat them while watching a film like sweets. Good way to trick the mind! x
