    Yvonne1989 Needs to stop eating!!

    What do I do? I'm on day 9 so far have done 100% SS. I really need some food, not even comfort food but just food.
    I have a 13 1/2 month old girl and for the last few days all she has done is cry and scream and throw temper tantrums :cry:I am at the end of my tether :cry:I am in the middle of leaving her dad and moving out but it's taking sooo long :cry:Normally at times like this I would open a bottle of wine and get a takeaway. No that I have no food or alcohol to rely on I am having to face up to my demons Im not liking it at all. I normally cope well but these days I have a constant headache with all her screaming and I am all on my own :cry:Today I had a shake at about 2 pm and have only just had another shake...I just have not time to make the shake, I cant do it when she's asleep as I use the blender. I have gone off the soups...I have about 3stone to loose, so I'll be on this for about another 9 weeks....I cant imagine being on it that long.
    Sorry for the rant. HELP :sign0009:
    Should I give in and eat dinner which is Chicken stir fry homemade with noodles? __________________

    Hi Yvonne :)

    Ok.....take a step back hun and breathe!!..xxx

    You have done 9 days on CD 100% and that is an amazing achievement under the circumstances you have described here. Major credit to you for that :D

    What you are feeling is "head hunger" because as you say, you would normally comfort/medicate yourself with food and drink, yeah? Me too and lots of us on here too believe me!

    I'm not going to say don't go and eat as that is ultimately your choice.

    What I will say is ....do you think you will feel any better if you do that?

    Imagine for a minute what you will feel afterwards if you give in under this stress at the mo?

    I understand how tired and weary you must be feeling and that's when we are most vulnerable to cave in. Are you too tired to go and write down all the reasons you want to lose weight and reinforce them again? If you are, I would say go off to the inspirational photos thread and distract yourself by loooking at some of the amazing success stories and then try and get some sleep.

    Hang in there sweetheart, you can do this.

    Don't give in! Ask yourself why you are dieting? Food will be there after the diet! You need to get yourself a shaker so you can mix when baby is asleep but do you at least have something with a lid that you could make do with tonight? Then have your shake and start sipping your water, put your feet up and watch something on telly or take your water to bed. The feeling will pass but just don't give in!

    Forgot to add hun, can you get in touch with your Health Visitor and ask for some support around this crying and tantrums? I think you need some extra support right now to get through your personal stuff...xxx

    Thank you for the reply. No i dont actually want to eat anything not real food and not even shakes/soups. I am soo stressed right now. I have a list of reasons why I am doing this, gonna look over them as soon as Mini-me is in bed.

    Isis and I posted at same time for you. At least you know you are not alone! Remember you CAN do this.

    I mix my shakes with Ice as thats the only way I can stomach it. So need a blender.
    The health visitor's are pretty ***** in this area...they will just refer me to a doc and I will be put on depression pills which I dont want.

    Can you not put the water for your shake in the freezer for 10 minutes then use that? It will be icy cold but ok not slushy. Don't look for excuses not to make it! You may prefer it with ice but remember you want to lose weight and if you have to sacrifice ice because DD is asleep then so be it.

    Well done!!! Get that list out as soon as you can and draw some strength from it again. If you have only had 2 shakes today then I would say really try and have your 3rd so that you are getting all your nutrients. You need to be firing on all cyclinders don't you?:) Keep the water up as well as that will help stave off headaches,

    You're doing this.....xxx :)

    Lol the only thing that would stop the headaches is if she stopped screaming!!
    I will just make up some soup as thats easier.
    Thanks you guys Im feeling abit better just needed to get ot off my chest.
    I like the shakes with ice as it just tastes abit nicer. My plan is to have 2 shakes in the day and soup at night.

    Have your soup then and take yourself off to bed with your water. That's what I'm going to do. Then get your sleep. You need your energy. You did the right thing coming on here instead of giving in. Well done!
