    Well tomorrow is going to be my 4th restart on Cambridge. I know I need to lose weigh, I want fast results and I'm so very uncomfortable in this heat being this size but I am absolutely petrified of starting back tomorrow.

    I'm a self confessed comfort eater and feel that taking my crutch away tomorrow will leave me feeling quite empty. That sounds stupid doesn't it, but I'm not looking foward to not eating or drinking what I feel like anymore.

    Has anyone else felt so damn right aprehensive about this diet? Today I've been cramming anything and everything in my mouth possible to try and make up for not eating from tomorrow, which is bad. I've also put restarting off for a while, always calculating some excuse or another but I'm so desperate to restart.

    I'm also seeing my CDC again Thursday, soo will have a chat about this with her. Hopefully I'll be on day 2 by then!

    This all sounds contradictory I know but I'm just scared! Heeelp!

    Yup, I know its for a very short time but I dunno it just feel silly whay I'm scared. Food isn't my friend, I abuse it which has led me to be this size in the first place.

    Good luck on your restart! It might be easier if you ease into the diet by building up the shakes and cutting down the carbs. I know when I've restarted in the past I've binged on carbs and then given up by day 4. This time I had my last carb heavy meal a few days before and gradually cut them out of my diet. I've avoided the headaches and general unwell feeling I usually get and have managed 12 days without a cheat. I'm sure this is down to me easing in rather than binging.:):):)

    Good Luck with the diet. :)

    Oh my life!!

    I could have written that! Well apart from the cd diet but I have tried to start on a vlcd but have fallen off with a bumpety bump again after a measly 7 days (which I didn't follow 100%)

    I am so annoyed with myself I've been eating things that I am disgusted about, forcing myself to eat things just b'coz I know I'll be starting again & 'missing out'!!!!

    I am annoyed with the fact that I can't get my focus, my want or my drive to do this... I do want it as I don't want to be like this forever but nothing seems to drive me enough to do it for any length of time!

    If anyone happens to stumble upon my mojo could they send it back to me ASAP!

    Thanks. xx
