Saturday night blues

S: 18st12lb C: 16st8lb G: 11st0lb BMI: 37.4 Loss: 2st4lb(12.12%)
Hiya guys, hope everyones ok this evening :)
My fellas in work (nights) and my boys in bed so its just me and one of the cats sat here fighting the food craving. Evening is my worst time especially when im on my own. Ive just had my last shake of the day and im struggling. I dont know why im finding it so hard still. I know all the reasons why im doing this and during the day seems to be going ok but come the evening when the house is quiet and im used to sitting down to watch the telly with some choc i find it really hard. My hubby is being fab and i struggle more when hes not here.
On a different note im just wondering how long people are doing the tfr for? Im hoping to get through 8 weeks of 100% and then do refeed but ive read that youre supposed to do at least 14 weeks of tfr? Is this the minimum that youre supposed to do or can you do it for as long as you feel is right?

Hiya, sorry don't know about the 14 weeks thing, I wont be doing it that long! What I do know about is how hard it is sometimes (and this is the easiest diet I have ever done)I have been so grumpy tonight with my poor kids, hubby is very understanding as I have been ok a lot but he knows i'm bored and missing eating out/in so is treating me well tonight - he just made me a black coffee :)
It really is a day at a time, sometimes I have a bath and that knocks me out of it, then in the morning thats another day gone. Hugs, kisses and YOUVE LOST 9 LBS shout. xxxx

Thanks for replying

hiya and thanks for the reply..i didnt think anyone was around and i was slowly climbing the walls lol. I know what you mean about being grumpy with the family, but i cant complain because my hubby is wonderful and full of encouragement and tries his best to understand and support me. Im just having a 'down' day thats all...plus i was cooking a piece of lamb and the smell was driving me nuts lol x

Oh, I can totally empathise this evening. I'm only on day 5 and this is my first weekend without food. Was okay until about 5.30 this evening and have been craving ever since. It's been a VERY difficult evening :( I haven't caved though, and tomorrow is another day.

I'm not sure about the 14 week thing either. I don't think it has to be that long. I'm going to try my best to keep going until December (although goodness knows how!) to lose as much as I can, and then do a refeed a couple of weeks before Christmas, enjoy Christmas and then either have another bash at Lipotrim or rejoin Slimming World. If I manage to shift 5 stone by mid Dec I'll be happy and then lose the other 3 however I can. It feels like such a long slog right now :(

Well done on your first week's weight loss :) Hope you managed to get through this evening afterall. Sorry I wasn't about earlier. Was to busy sulking! lol

Hiya Jayne :)
Judging by your profile we are the same height and have a similar amount to lose so at least we can empathise and gee each other on eh! Ive not caved either although i have been upstairs and stared at the scales for a little while willing myself not to get on them (itl spoil the surprise of weigh-in on Monday lol)..psycho i know lol. I found the end of week one really hard too and spent a lot of time going to bed very early and having a sneaky cry when noone was looking but you WILL get through it and when you step on those scales on Monday you will thank your lucky stars that you didnt cave and itl give you the boost you need to do week 2. Its a good job weve got this forum to whinge on eh? or i think my hubby would consider divorce lol. Im on here most days at random times so if you need a whinge/weep/shout then come and find me and ill give you a cyber-shoulder/hug

Hi Louise :)

Oh you are so good not weighing. I can't help myself and jump on and off the flipping things at least twice a day! For me though that helps keep me motivated I think as at least then I can see that the suffering is worth it lol.

Definitely thank goodness for this forum as a place to come and have a moan, and even celebrate :) We need like minded people. My husband is as supportive as he can be, but as a man who has never had a weight problem, he doesn't really get it. I think you have to be this weight and be so desperate that you give up food, to truly understand and empathise.

Had a few private tears here this week too, but in a way, I think this is healthy as we are going to have to learn to deal with our emotions without food.

How are you feeling today? I'm okay so far. I felt terribly hungry last night, but today that's subsided thank goodness. I am also feeling very proud of myself this afternoon as I have made packed lunches ready for the children to take to school tomorrow. I didn't think I would be able to do that as any thought of food or being around it so far has just been pure torture so far. I can't say it was easy to do, but I did do it and it wasn't as bad as I expected. I also didn't even lick my fingers at the end! lol

Thanks for the offer of support. Here for you too if you need it xx
