Hello there, If you don't mind I am wallowing in a pity party at the moment and just to need vent somewhere. I am on WK 5 of SS. I am really struggling at the mo with SS. Every night a I have a tiny piece (no more than a mouthful) of DH dinner, but it is just not satisfying my craving. I am feeling so deprived at the moment, angry with myself for getting so overweight and angry with myself that I am putting myself through this diet because I am overweight. Its not even naughty food I am craving, just something nice like a ham salad sandwich will do. My family are incredibly supportive, but I fear I have become a bit of a food bore for them. I haven't seen my CDC for 2 weeks and am not due to see her until next Monday as she is on hols at the moment. I think this may be part of my problem. I am really finding it hard to remember the positives in this, in 5 weeks I have..... Lost 29 pounds (according to my scales, official WI on Mon) Lost over 17 inches off my body Can wear a 20/22 on top whereas I have been a 26 for over 5 years. I don't have any pain in my hip any more. None of my usual clothes fit me. I don't know whats the matter with me, I do know I don't want to stop this diet, but I am really struggling.:wave_cry: Motivate me people!!
