    You can do it! go and have some water, phone someone, do a crossword, go into the minimins arcade, just occupy yourself! Have a pampering bath..
    You are doing well to be on day 5, the first couple of weeks are the hardest. Keep posting!:D:D

    Drink more water, hot or cold...though if im hungry and craving food I find hot water does take it away.
    Do stick with it though ....it really is worth it.

    Hi there. I thought day 3 was the hard day. I waited and waited to feel bad but I didnt. I thought I'd got away it...until the next day!
    Day 4 was the toughie for me. I nearly gave in but come about 7.30pm I thought there's not much of the day left I should just stick at it. That was nearly 4 weeks ago. I've not felt bad since then. I've actually coped fine.
    Please stick with it, you'd kick yourself if you gave up after doing so well for 5 days.
    Imagine in 9 days time you can chew again...CD bars-yum!
    Good luck and think positive.
    Ceri.

    Come on Princess Boo - you CAN do this! You've made it this far so stick with it, it's well worth it when you see the scales drop.

    Today is a new day, you're a little bit lighter than yesterday and that feeling is better than anything you could've eaten yesterday. Stay positive hun :D

    OMG - I have dreams that I have eaten stuff in the night and wake up unsure whether it was real or not too!! This diet certainly is crazy!!

    Stay strong chick and try not to think about food - as hard as it is. Go make yourself a warm drink and try drinking through a straw! Not only will it take you longer to drink, you somehow feel fuller/more satisfied and the whole time you are drinking it you won't be thinking about food.

    Don't fall off the wagon now when you are doing sooo well. It will so be worth it when you jump on the scales and see a fab result xx

    Hey Princess,

    I hope day 6 is going ok for you.

    I know it doesn't seem like it now but the longer you can stick this diet out the quieter the voice in your head demanding that you eat gets.

    I don't crave food half as often as I used to now - unless I can see/smell sausages :drool:.

    I used to think carbs were my kryptonite but noooooo I think it is sausages :sigh:

    Hey Judy,

    Yeah, I drink my shakes always warm and through a straw - so much more satisfying than gulping it down in one go. It seems to last forever and you get more flavour that way!!! Use the really small narrow straws not the big fat maccy d type ones. LOL!!! xx

    I struggle nearly EVERY day! You're not alone - we all know how hard it can be on this diet. But those scales are SOOOOOOOOOOO good to you if you stick with it - its worth it come weigh-in day! :)

    I've found it helps to "just be good TODAY" when the cravings hit. So when I'm driving home from work and I'm hungry and I have to drive passed a KFC, a Burger King AND a McDonalds (I really need to find an alternative route home...!! :eek:), I tell myself that no, I won't cave in and go through the drive-thru, I'll be good, just for today. Maybe tomorrow I'll be naughty. :D And that gets me through the cravings that day.

    As long as I'm good, just for today, everyday - I'll be OK!!!

    But seriously, one day at a time. Don't look too far ahead (except for when you're dreaming of the lovely summer dresses you'll be wearing NEXT summer!), just focus on getting through today, and congratulate yourself for every day done. Buy yourself something lovely to have when you've lost, say, a stone. Look forward to that, and KEEP DRINKING THE WATER!!!

    Stick with it, every time you fall offthe wagon it gets harder to get back on, in a few days you will really start to feel good, you will see the weight coming off and people will start noticing and you will have the reall feel good factor.

    DONT GIVE IN REMEMBER FOOD BAD WATER GOOD.
