    :cry:
    Sorry if this brings everyone down...
    I am climbing the walls tonight! I just want to give in and eat something. It's a combination of boredom and real hunger - I have had all three shakes already. I feel like crying!
    Help, please!

    Mmm, weekends are hard. My advice would be to have a hot drink, tea or coffee and then drink a big glass of water.

    See how you feel after. If you think you might crack, have another shake, but only if it's the difference between that and cracking.

    Head cravings don't always last too long. Don't cave my dear - you've done so, so well.

    Maybe try to distract yourself. I've been known to go to bed at 7 in the past if I'm really struggling. Do you like reading? Can you tuck up in bed and read a good book or magazine? Keep thinking about weighing yourself in the morning :) xxx

    Hey there
    I am having that kind of day too, and it's breaking me a bit! Am determined to do this but really struggled A LOT today and I am snappy and peed off because of it. Hubby suggested he'd prefer a 'rounder, happier' me than a smaller, grumpier one.

    Plod on with it, you'll only be furious with yourself if you don't. Take a bath, read a book, write some old friends or family a 'real' letter or even just write down all of the reasons why you are doing this.

    Be strong xxx

    Hey Ellie, I know how you feel. Can you do something to distract yourself, have a bath or watch a film? If you really need to eat something have an extra half a shake and see how you are with that, but if you can put that off for half an hour or an hour and see how you feel then perhaps the craving will go.

    This is the toughest part of the diet, but you can do it - you have done really well over the past 5 weeks - you just need to get this evening out of the way.

    Hope the feeling passes soon x

    You are all so lovely, thank you. I have tears in my eyes now...! I think going to bed with a magazine is the only answer, after a nice shower.
    I promise I won't be such a whingebag tomorrow xx

    What would you say to us if the roles were reversed?

    Try a cup of coffee? This might fill you a bit? Or just go to bed and have a good read? Hope you don't give into temptation as you are doing so well! Good luck!

    I won't give in, I promise! There is no food in my fridge or cupboards to cheat with!
    I know I would massively regret eating and I also know that if I started I wouldn't be able to stop...
    So, I will stay strong and pray that those scales say 12 stone something on Tuesday! xx
