Triple, THANK YOU for this it is totally what I need. So near & yet so far... that's it completely!!! If we can get a little group together we can encourage each other and keep our eyes on the goal... and we'll get there quicker! It feels like I have been struggling with these last pounds forever, partly because I am in the comfort zone of feeling slimmer and partly because, deep down, I am terrified of getting to target. How can you want something so badly and yet be terrified of it at the same time? Haven't quite worked that one out!!!

I have 9lbs to go and I promise to stop messing about and stick to 810 100% this week, because after weeks of 1lb or 1/2 or sts, I'd love to lose 3lbs and REALLY put a dent in it.

Shall we have a list?

Triple Trouble - 2.5lbs
Barnsie - 2lbs
Katycakes - 3lbs

Sounds like this post was made for me! LOL. I have been messing around with the same lbs for months now and lack the motivation to get the last few lbs off! Have WI every 2 weeks but weigh myself in between (of course!)......so I'll add myself to the list with 2lbs this week......not being on a team does make a difference, so here's hoping you'll help me get rid of the last few pesky lbs. :)

Triple Trouble - 2.5lbs
Barnsie - 2lbs
Katycakes - 3lbs
wannadrop - 3lbs
Minz - 2lbs

this was made for me too! I have been messing about for too long lose lb sts put on lb etc, my problem is I'm a constsant picker, when I'm making family meals etc . I've got to get my head back in gear and get rid of the last 9 or 10 lbs once and for all. problem is all my other cdc's clients have no prob I'm sure she thinks I'm eating more than I am. I just eat enough to knock me out of ketosis thus the slow weight loss.

Triple Trouble - 2.5lbs
Barnsie - 2lbs
Katycakes - 3lbs
wannadrop - 3lbs
Minz - 2lbs
trisha 2lbs

You would think the last few lbs would drop off. Is it just us messing around or is it actually the diet? LOL:p

I think for me, it's feeling better about myself and how I look so I've become a bit complacent about losing. I'm still getting people complimenting me on the loss and more importantly keeping it off, so whilst that's wonderful, it does take the pressure off losing.

Plus, I do think it's harder to lose as your body reaches it's right place, if you know what I mean?

Hi all good to see that we have a good group starting. I think the losses will slow but i also think that we can sometimes contribute to it my problem is i neglect the water now days i still manage to loose the average stone per month but I know I need a little boot up the bum to get me to the end I am getting married next year so its very important that i can reach goal and maintain that weight something which i have never seemed to be able to achieve. I think the last bit is probably the hardest it begins to feel like ive been on cd forever and that i havent experienced real food in such a long time! I am beginning the 810 plan next week can some of you who are on it or have done it share your experiences please did your losses slow did it make you feel more tempted to cheat any meal idea also welcome thanks in advance x

I agree... it's not the diet in my case, it's ME. If you mess with the rules, they won't work for you... stands to reason. Why do I mess? Complacent, bit scared of getting to goal, and a streak of I-know-better thinking, imagining I can bend the rules and get away with it. Obviously not!!! Today the scale edged down below 11st 7lbs, unofficial, but enough proof that CD works when you do it properly. That's me motivated again... I'm fed up with all the faffing about, gonna push on now & get there.

SOOOO glad this thread is here... it's a great way to stay focused. And we can kick each other into touch if someone wanders off the track too much... see you tomorrow guys!

LOL - I thought it was 324lbs! Still megga!

Good luck with the gardening - I did similar jungle management a few weeks back and have spent a lot of time admiring my handiwork since.....gardening, no matter how small a job, reaps such rewards. Am going to pop into the garden centre later with mum and no doubt will have a few more plants to fill in the newly weeded beds. Have a good one!

OK, the sun has disappeared now up here and I have come in for my choc bar lunch & more herb teas. Fingers are all stung with pulling up nettles & two hours has barely put a dent in it... but you're right, I WANT to get it done and I will. An hour or two a day would do it, just like with the CD it's one step at a time but it all adds up. The garden can be the 'new gym' for me! And the treat of a trip to garden centre is a good idea... have cleared a bit of flower garden which now has a good few gaps to fill!

Glad everyone is on track... Barnsie, your stats are amazing, my hero!
