    I put on 8LB. I wasnt gonna come back as so disgusted and ashamed of myself....

    Switched over to Atkins but couldnt control my overeating. Been mostly Atkins overeating but also Macdonalds and similar... I have 10 days worth of shakes in the cupboard so last night decided to come back before I do serious damage... Cleared all the food out so back on TFR for at least 10 days from today... probably longer...

    What a total mess up I am and feel so bloated..Gonna have to go through all the initial phase of TFR again now.. Just hope I have the will power :wave_cry:

    Nick it's only 8 lbs God don't beat yourself up about it
    it's prob 5 lbs of water you have done so well and Tfr is
    such self deprivation and the weight goes so quickly that it prob
    takes your mind and habbits time to catch up
    You've caught it in time and remember guilt is a wasted emotion
    that's my mantre ! X

    Hi Nick,
    I agree with Wamser and the good thing is you've realised and stopped yourself. You are aware that you have to make changes in your eating habbits. I can totally understand after weeks of not eating anything. I too am worried about what I'll be like coming off tfr.
    You'll have that 8lbs off in no time. Good for you posting. Wish you lots of luck, chin up.

    A lesson learnt in 1 week is a lot easier to turnaround than after a month or 2. You'll get back on your horse and ride that fecker all the way to slimtown. Most is probably water anyway.

    I'm starting refeed today after my weigh-in. I'm gonna be double careful now so at least your gain wasn't in vain ;)

    Nick, you've are doing so well, even with the gain. You realised you were going in the wrong direction and instead of ignoring that you turned around. You're not far off from where you were when you diverted off the track. You'll soon be back to where you need to be.

    Part of the skills for keeping this weight off for life is making big or small steps in the right direction. You have proved that you have learnt this skill because you turned around. Be proud you did that.

    Just keep going, keep drinking the shakes, keep doing what you did, you've lost loads not that much more to go.

    Good luck my dear =)

    dont worry about it youll have that off in no time it will probably only take a week. the other guys are right its probably mostly water. i know how you feel about losing that slim feeling especially when you wake up. i done really bad this week i ate 2 days in a row due to celebration and had a blip earlier on in the week but started again yesterday and have been 100% and am back in the right mind frame so you can do it its great youve realised and you know what you dont want to do next time and maybe you can refeed and do maintenance longer next time to help you wean off slower. i hope that helps

    Hi Nick! As everyone else says, it's fab and amazing that you stopped this in its tracks - you saw that it wasn't working and took the decision to go back to what works for you right away. That takes backbone.

    And you were brave enough to come here and say it, so the rest of us could learn from what happened to you. Most people who fall off the wagon just slink off into the sunset! Well done you.

    Best of luck with restarting TFR - it's really hard, I did after my holidays this year, but it's doable. And you'll go into refeed next time totally prepared. :)

    Ive fell off the wagon big style this afternoon. Only started this morning back on TFR and the "demons" just took over and ive had one almighty food binge.... and after all the lovely warm supportive comments. I feel like such a fool now after posting up my restart this morning only to spectacularly fail this afternoon... Im so depressed... I do plan on starting again, I have to, I just dont wanna post up a plan after this major fail again.... oh bloody heck!!

    Ok, sorry to be a meanie here but only 8lbs?!!!!

    8lbs in one week is a heck of a lot of weight to put on!!!!! Attitudes like this persons get you nowhere im afraid.

    You know where you went wrong and now its in your lap to do something about it. It really isnt easy going back to food, especially as we all think we have cracked our food habits whilst on tfr - its just not the case is it!

    If you really want to do it - you will :) You have done tfr before you know you can do it again. x

    Nick, before you started LT this last time you probably thought a lot about it and got your self in the right frame of mind before you started. Just sit down with a hot drink re-read some of your fantastic posts offering support to other people and get your mind settled. You need to feel calm and in control, make yourself a plan and then go for it! You have been a very consistent poster on this forum and have helped a lot of people and now you need to forgive yourself and start over. You know you can do this ! Good luck huni xx

    Now you deserve an ass-whooping. GET YOUR **** TOGETHER NICK !!

    Put an end to it right now, put up a photo of pre-TFR up on the fridge, get your arse to bed and start 100% tomorrow.

    See Nick this is the difference between being fat or thin. You had a blowout but instead of giving in and not coming back, you are getting back into it. I'm sure slim people do this, they have the indian curry then cut back the next day. So well done and great to have you back. xx

    Nick,
    It's not the end of the world, it's only 8lb.
    Bet you shift it in no time. It's probably mostly water anyhow.
    Please please stick with it, and good on you for having the guts to come back.
    Stay strong XX

    You can do this because you did it before and you've tried to get back on the wagon which is a very good sign. You're only human. If it helps I'll 'fess up to a mega binge weeks back when I scoffed 6 Exante bars - it may not sound loads, but those babies take some chewing and I had jawlock afterwards and I'd eaten to the point where I'd hurt my stomach (which is obviously not normal behaviour). I worked out that Exante has way way too many carbs for me and that's what triggered my almighty feast. It might be the same for you - if you have a sensitive trigger to carbs. Try and think back in case you fell into carb creep on Atkins - once you're into carb creep it's a real trap which can trigger all kinds of crazy insulin spikes and then it's a short journey from there to upending the sugarbowl into your waiting jaws to get a fix (I'm speaking for myself here btw!) but white bread has the same GI as sugar, so you see where I'm coming from.

    It's amazing how we love to whip ourselves over eating blips. I passed my driving test on the third attempt, I gave up smoking after (ooh about a hundred) attempts. The difference with eating is that we have to do it to survive and we're so emotionally bound up in the whole thing. Best of luck, keep trying and keep coming back, you're in the best hands here.

    yeah i think the carb creep is what happened to me, i like to think of myself as an Atkins guru as done it in the past.... when i blended LT to Atkins i thik i did it too quick and the effects of actually having food just consumed my thoughts, i was eating far too much and holding onto ketosis by a thread thinking i was safe and untouchable... but i wasnt. it spiralled outta control and now ive hit the pits bigtime with the old habits of sugar/carb binging to trhe extreme....

    you are so right about the having to eat to survive thing... i mean food is an addiction to me... if it was alcohol or drugs i could give up but with food you have to have a little bit of what you are addicted to each day to survive... Its like an recovering alcoholic having to drink to halves of cider a day... its messed up!

    anyways, the food purchased today has been consumed, the remainder is all wrapped up in a carrier bag ready to take over my Dads tomorrow (he will be happy!) and with all the best will in the world I have the plan to go TFR from now on.... (although i say that with a full belly).... Im making it public so it puts more pressure on me to have to report in tomorrow and either say yes i had a successfull day or no i had another failiure and of course i want to be able to come online and tell you all Im back onboard with day1 under my belt... Ill be back in 24 hours!!!

    xx Thanks all, be back on tomorrow night..
