    Hi,( I have just copied this from my weekly weigh in thread!!)

    Well its day 83 today and my wiegh in showed no losses. I was expecting as the week after my period I retain water and the last time this happened I had put on 1lb.

    I felt, earlier, like going into the next stage as I feel happy with my body and weight BUT I feel differently now as we talked tonight about critical parent and rebellious child. I really identify with it and am mostly the rebellious child. I have got so much to learn and dreading the return to food.

    My LLC asked us what hunger actually feels like.....and my take on it is that I can't remember the last time that I felt hungry. Over the years my head and emotions have been ruling my eating habbit. I mainly fed to my emotions.
    I also fed to my stress levels and using rewards and treat constantly. I hope all of that can change when I return to conventional food.

    I am going to to a meditation course after lighterlife has finished as I can not turn to food all the time as all the weight will return and more!! I am worth more than that. I am going to be selfish and do it for me and be the nurturing parent!!

    I hope this makes sense to everyone.
    Thanks for taking the time to read this thread I hope it can help someone.

    You are doing incredibly well, I don't just mean the weight loss but the battle in your head is pretty much won!

    Its at least 80% about what goes on in our heads and because you recognise whats going on it means you really CAN go on and control it now. When the time is right to go back to food the knowledge you have gained will really help you to work it out.

    Can you imagine any other diet? most of us (me included) would just give up after a bad weeks loss even though we know deep down its the wrong thing, and undoes all the good we've done.... but not now, not here and not you!

    I went along to a yoga/relaxation class for a while and really enjoyed it but I don't like to be out too many evenings when hubby is away and I have to rely on babysitters, so until I am finished management I can't really go back. I could really feel it helped me though so I'd like to get back into it.

    Hopefully next week will show a nice loss for you!

    Stardreamer you must not dispair!

    I'm no expert but maybe you're body is now at the right weight and it just wants to stay there? I bet you will have lost some more at your next weigh in.

    Just sit tight...

    Thanks Mags, Slinkytobe and Bettyboo,
    I am sure that next week will be different. I haven't got long to go and can't wait to eat normally and sensibly again. I am already planning menus in my head. Thanks for your support!!

    Hi Hun

    Didn't realise you had a bad week? You're looking great and with such a small amount left to lose it won't be long!? As mags said you seem to have it pretty much sorted out in your head, i'm sure you'll be fine when you return to food....

    Put htat wedding dress back on hun and just tell yourself how fantastic you look....

    See you sunday xxx

    and if I've read your ticker correctly, your BMI is already 23, so those last few pounds (if you think you need to lose them) will be the hardest to lose of all... (as I oh so well know!)
