    I'm not asking for me but for my sister!

    She has been CDing for 5weeks and lost almost 2st but this week so has been away and just eaten/drank normally.

    She is straight back on it on Monday and expecting a gain obviously but will she loose quite a bit like you do on your first week?

    Also if you have a small blip(say a sandwhich or choc bar not a full meal out or anything) at the begining of your week can you put weight on by the end of the week,this is just a disagreement we are having at the moment.I think yes you can she thinks by the end of the week as longa s it was a one off yo'd still loose somthing...who's right LOL

    Thanks sonya x

    I don't think there is a right or wrong answer to this but it depends on the individual... some people 'get away' with it others don't :mad: :mad: :mad:

    On the taking a week off.... i would absolutely and utterly try to deter anyone from taking even a minute 'off' this diet cos it is soooooooooooooo hard to get back on!!!

    Well done to your sister for losing the 2 stone but I'll be very interested to see how easy she finds it to get back on it on Monday.... it sounds easy to do but actually doing it is nearly impossible for some... and then some people do it with relative ease!!!

    How are you getting on???

    Personally, if I take a week off it turns into a couple of months...

    Most people find it very hard to get back on track after taking time off especially me.
    My week off has been now 5 months and i am restarting agin for the 5th time.
    The excitement of starting Cd and not knowing what to expect and looking forward to seeing changes so fast on the diet,is sometimes lost when u restart SSing again after a break, but everyone is different.
    Hope ur sis gets back on with no probs at all, she is lucky she has a caring sister like u.
    Take care x

    My few days off were last Summer and I'm still trying to get back into it properly. But I'm still 3 st less than i was when I started the diet
