Hi everyone,
I am new to cambridge and have been doing really well completed day 9 and was really on a high as I was really 'in the zone' and not wanting to cheat at all. Lost 9lbs and was delighted....
then.....we had a bbq last night (hubby organised it and I had dreaded it all week) there was food and drink galore and it went on til 1am, during this time I really struggled as normally I am a party animal and I sat all night with a fizzy water but picked and picked and picked:cry:ate about two spoons of nuts, a few crisps, two cookies:sigh: and far too much chicken and fish. I am so disappointed with myself and feel it has really set me back, today I am struggling a lot craving all the left overs and everything else in the fridge.
Am so angry with myself, how long will it take me to get back in ketosis and will I put weight on do you think because of this slip?
Have not strayed at all today but it has been hard.
Any advice to encourage me would be greatly appreciated:cry:

Don't panic - it probably hasn't set you back as far as you think. The nuts, fish and chicken won't have affected ketosis much, so that only leaves the carb calories in the crisps and the cookies - maybe 500 carb calories, thereabouts? So once those 500 calories are burned back off, you'll be back in ketosis. Given that most of us need at least 1,800 calories a day simply for lying around and breathing :D, you might even have burned those 500 calories off already and could be back in ketosis.

It's all a learning curve, so don't give yourself too hard a time. Turn it around instead - just think what you ordinarily would have eaten at a bash like that - and how much less you ate last night! Give yourself a pat on the back for being so restrained!

{{{hugs}}}

Thank you Lily, what a great reply, have been on a 'downer' all day so the fact you reckon I will be back in ketosis soon has made me feel a lot better x
