    .......I've cracked it.

    I lost 2 stone in 8 weeks in Feb/March and then hit the BIG 40 beginning of April and thought I was strong enough to come off plan for 2 days for a celebration. 4 weeks later and a 10lb gain I was still struggling to catch up with the wagon - but I think I've finally cracked it.

    I've changed my meal routine - simples!!!!

    For weeks I tried to get back on it as I was before - shake at 7.30am, bar at 1pm and then soup 6/7pm. I work 8am til 5pm and this worked well for me 1st time round. But since trying to restart I'd be starving by 11am and giving up by the time I got home as I found I was dreading the soups!!!

    I now take a bar to work for 10am and a soup for lunch at 1pm which I make up in a BIG soup mug like a cup a soup - a bit lumpy to start but my perseverance has paid off - got it down to a fine art now lol. I'm enjoying the soups again which is weird as I still don't fancy them in the evening (no idea what that's all about!!!!) For supper 6/7pm I make my shakes up in a smoothie maker with ice and it makes a pint of lovely, yummy thick shake.

    I am already in ketosis (day 3) and know I can do this as the hard part is over - WOOHOO!!! Just gotta be careful when food is back in the equation - 8 weeks of TS and it still beat me.:rolleyes:

    If you're struggling give it a try - it might work for you too xx

    Yay, really glad to hear you've found a routine that works for you, it makes it so much easier when you get in that zone! Good work getting back onto the packs too, I find that soooo hard when I've had a break.
    Hope you get a nice reward on the scales at the end of the week :)

    I've just jumped back in the wagon too - haven't been brave enough to weigh myself after 4 weeks of over indulgence! I've been splitting my packs over the past couple if days to get me over the hunger. 1/2 shake at 07:30, 1/2 bar at 11ish, 1/2 soup at 2ish, 1/2 soup at 5:30ish leaving 1/2 a pack and 1/2 a bar for the evening when the kids are in bed .... My worst time for nibbiling. I found the packs quite thick the first time round so I'm watering them down well. We just have to find a way that suits! Good luck!
