    I've had loads of attempts of restart (with only my will power to battle with not a life changing new baby) but on day 3 now and for some reason it just all clicked when i saw CDC on Wed. Even went to a party last night and avoided all food and alcohol.
    Good luck.

    Hey Naomi
    Ive just done my first week, saw my cdc this morning and have lost 13lbs.
    I am over the moon with this!
    That is my inspiration to carry on, along with all the help and support on here.
    Many have said on here, and it is so true "Food will always be there, but lose weight now, and the fat wont be".
    I hope that you can get on track and I wish you all the best

    Hi Naomi, Good luck with your restart. Congratulations on your baby. The first week is always the hardest, but once you get through that it does get easier. x

    AARRRGGGGGGHHHHHH:mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:
    I didnt get through my 1st day back on the diet yesterday. I started the week eatting bars though which have made it difficult to get into ketosis for me, so i think i have to go back to basics and give them a miss until the beginning of week three. I am so tired of cracking:sigh::sigh::sigh::sigh::sigh:

    Hi naomi1611

    Please don't be so hard on yourself, you'll get there. I can only imagine it must be harder after having a baby. Perhaps those with experience can comment on that.

    Have you tried easing yourself into the diet? Before I started my diet I tried cutting back on the things I was eating, especially carbs (biscuit, cake, rice). I wasn't as successful as I had hoped but the day before the diet I managed to exist quite happily on soup. I am sure the small changes I made before hand helped a lot.

    My CDC doesn't recommend the bars until after two weeks on the diet. Though I suspect if you can do without them for much longer then that might be better as each bar is up to 172kcals.

    How many bars do you have a day? According to the literature only one bar a day should be consumed.

    Another thing to consider is that you may actually need to eat more food. I don't know how old your baby is and how you are feeding the baby. Have you considered trying one of the higher steps of CD? You could start at Step 5 for instance and gradually work your way back to Step 1 A or B.

    Anyway, I hope it all works out for you. If you've done it before it is highly likely that you will be able to do it again.

    Hi Bee
    Thank you for the words of encouragement. I was eatting 1 bar a day, but today i havent had any and the day seems to be going smoothly with no thoughts of eatting anything:D I am going to get on the wii fit for a bit with the kids, am getting weighed tomorrow and although i have had a really bad week i hope to have lost at least 1lb as something is better than nothing.

    Hi Naomi We all know this diet works it is just getting our brain focused and believing in ourselves to do it. Just think how you felt when you lost it the first time and keep drinking the water. Don't know if this will help but when I have my bar and black coffee at lunch time I say to myself "that jacket pototoe was huge but lovely" it works xx
