    and reverting to WW for a while...

    my willpower is just at an alltime low ~ i think staying on CD is causing me to binge. On sunday i fell off the wagon, and everyday since i've made it to about 7:30pm at night, and then fall off again in spectacular style, consuming more kcals/fat/carbs than you'd need in a week :eek:

    Until i can sort this head of mine out, i'm back on ww... slower losses, but at least i'll still be going in the right direction, and it should hopefully put an end to binging.

    Still going to use the CD forum tho... so you's ain't rid of me yet! :p Hoping you guys will re-motivate me to get back into CD again soon. Right, no more talk from me about being off the wagon, i'm back on it, its just not the super-speed formula 1 style CD one... its the slow WW one that steadily chugs along... aww well, it'll still get me to the finish line one day.

    Hope everyone is doing well... :)

    I was having a nightmare with CD in the end so started adding the odd atkins style meal and still managed to stay in ketosis for over 2 weeks (until I drank a load of Rose!) if you are going to fall off the wagon why not try low carb/atkins and you might be able to keep hanging on along that bumpy road....ps I am back and focused and on Day 2 now.

    Thanks Karen, Sez, Prosecco & MsJMC...

    Prosecco ~ i looked into Atkins, but i don't think its for me... i miss carbs, and having a variety of food, at the minute. Ultimately, this is why i keep failing. I think any diet which makes certain food off limit is going to trigger me off on a binge. The more i can't have something, the more i want it, and i can't seem to gain any control over it, its like i become a robot and go off on an automatic feeding frenzy. I realise ww sets limits in regards to points, but at least i can have a little of what i fancy, in moderation. Nothing is off limits. So i think WW is the only route i can take until my mindset and willpower comes back to me ~ and at least i'll still be losing in the process, so its better than no diet at all... :)

    MsJMC ~ 7pm ish must be the evil hour for us! Good luck for today, hope it goes well...!! Let us know how you get on... :)

    Good luck! You can do well in a CD break if you keep a check on things & don't see it as an opportunity to eat anything & everything! Hmmm.... me thinks the girl speaks from experience! Keep us up to date on your progress.
