Restarting Struggle

Princess

2nd Time Lucky!

Hi all im sheepishly sticking my head round the minimins door :wave_cry:

At xmas I kinda stopped my SSing and a string of unfortunate events in the last couple months has stressed me out to the point of just ating normally. Now (April 2nd) Ive still not got back on track! I dont know why, well I do its cos Ive been off it so long. But I still have a good few packs left since I last seen my CDC just before xmas. Now Ive decided today is that day to get back on it and so far am fine, Tho going away to sainsburys soon so im a bit worried.
I havent been just eating for scotland and managed to not put on. I have been eating healthily and maintained the weight I was just before xmas.

So now its getting back on the rocky road and im finding it soooooo damn hard

Any advice on restarting would be great :)

Dear Princess,

Remember the Nike advert? (JUST DO IT!!) I keep saying this to myself because the first step is the hardest...however, if we can look back after a great weight loss, we can see just how trivial it actually was to start. All you have to do is start...Get going girl!

Also , noticed that you are in Art and Design? At glasgow or Edinburgh? I did my BA hons in Edinburgh and took foundation course at Leith School of Art ( my true alma mater!!!)

Ready, steady,.....Go!

texasmorning

ps look at the before and after pics again. Sure fire motivation.

Hello you!!!:D:D:D

You handed in evil project dissy thingie??

Mine went on Friday! yahoo!!!

Anyway, we be in the same boat - I re-started for the millionth time on Sat. I have my beloved sticker chart, a nice variation on stickers in my diary. You know my love of stickers!!

Anyway so my chart has a few bits on it, date, weight, what rations I've munched, how many steps I did and how much water I've had. Oh....and a place for a sticker for when I've been good.

Re-starts are evil and I'm forever falling down on day 3/4!! it's day 3 today so I am cleaning (so as to avoid writing another essay as well as eating) and in general not looking in cupboards or the fridge.

Restarts are difficult. I'm in tonight, only got 1 person to see at 6.30 so if you fancy hopping up for a chat, or to change packs or whatever I'm in!!:D:D:D

Good luck my little Debby-doo, I'm rootin' for ya!!

TexasMorning ty for the reply, made me feel better :)
I just found a thread posted in the CD section that kinda weens you back on SS which sounds good. Think I will give that a wee try! As its now 5pm and ive already had all my packs - hungry tummy :(
Drank a bucket load of water - I love my water tho :D

Oh yeah im into art and design but its just more of a self taught hobby. Im actually doing web Design and Developemnt in dundee. Which is a blast! not.

Yeah thats a good idea to go check out the before and afters! Thanks again! xxx

No mine isnt due for another fortnight, nightmare! Im wading my way thru it slowly but surely. Its such a hard time at uni just now cant concentrate on anything else! Friggin nightmare, if I knew it was gonna be this much stress I wouldnt have bothered lol :sigh:

Glad you got yours in though bet it was a MASSIVE relief!
You and your stickers eh, might have to get my own little reward chart :)

Well done for managing to eat healthy during your break, thats an achievment in stself!

As for the restarting? well I'm clocking up a few myself now and the only thing I can say is don't give up. If you have a fall, get back up and keep trying you will get there in the end.

Good luck

Hope your ok with your restart. I think it's one of the hardest things to do but I know it's worth it.

Do you have something to really focus on - an ultimate prize after you've lost all your weight?

I am goin on holiday so this is my focus for now - it's a big family one and i dont want to be the fatty by the swimming pool! Get something to focus on and then get addicted to this site or texting a friend etc when the going gets tough. We can do this it will just take that little bit extra something. Dig deep - you have it in you to be thin!
