    Diet:
    CD SS+
    I was on CD for about 6 weeks back in April, lost about 15 pounds and was happy. I came off for 2 weeks, which lead into 2 months during which my eating habits were back to normal (junk for breakfast, junk for lunch and junk for dinner). After the 2 months I tried to get back on CD twice. Once I lasted until the 3rd evening, the second time until the 1st.

    I feel ready to go back on BUT I am afraid that I don't have the emotional skills to change my habits post CD. I fear that I will again put the weight back on. Once I am on CD I am on and do well but when I come off I go haywire regardless of the fact that I have good intentions. Also, this is my final year of school and it is a very stressful time.

    Any advice? Should I start back or should I not? My 18th is at the end of November but after that I think Christmas won't phase me.

    start back up and go for it... you need to work on your relationship with food... i had to do the same. and yes i worry about what happens when i get to goal... but ive come to learn that i have to eat in moderation!!... hopefully that will come to you too...

    During CD I thought it had come to me, but shortly into my break I realized it hadn't.

    I really, really want this but do worry about school stress and the cost of it (brother started college, dad made redundant).

    I love how I don't need to worry about food and can just not bother thinking about it on CD.

    My heart is saying do it but my head is saying don't!

    But for me there is nothing different.. I just don't know if I can factor it into life at the moment.

    there are loads of other diets... why do you say that you couldnt factor in anything else? (if you dont mind me asking)
    im not saying do this, but ive learnt alot about what i was putting into my mouth from taking xenical (dr prescribed double strength version of Ali)

    What I mean is that for me to lose weight successfully nothing works but CD but I don't know if I can factor CD in to life at the moment.

    School stress, money, fear of weight gain etc.

    I say go for it because I think you will learn from what happened when you put the weight back on. Good luck.
