    Well I'm back, after 2 weeks of chocolate binging…and general food naughtiness! I hid away from MM and the scales but yesterday plucked up the courage to step on them scales and to my absolute surprise I had put on just 2lbs. I had built up this huge monster in my mind and expected to see anything between 7lb-14lbs, what I often don't do is weigh myself before the damage really has been done and I'm well as truly off track. I can handle 2lbs I can still see the light at the end of the tunnel, I'm focused and even booked in with my CDC for an extra long chat on Thursday to sort my head out.

    I'm just a whisker away from being in the 12's again…it's been a long time coming and I'm getting there no matter what!!!!!!!

    Besides, I've made myself sick of chocolate!!!! :eek::eek:

    So…what I'm trying to say is..even when you really don't want to get on those scales DO IT you might be pleasantly surprised!!

    Hope everyone else is recovering after Easter :eek: and well done to those who were 100% you deserve a pat on the back big time!! :) x

    I can identify with so much you are saying in this post...

    Well done for getting the courage to weigh and thankfully the damage was not too bad which goes to show how we can build things up in our own heads all out of proportion to reality.

    We are our own worst enemies at times.

    Good luck with starting back and all the best on your weight loss journey!

    I am exactly the same hun, been off CD for the whole weekend and been quite bad. Not with chocolate but wine and nice food bbqs etc. Been for my weigh in tonight and gained 2.5lb and no inches so not that bad at all!

    Now the weekends behind us and double bank holidays we can all get back on track! Good luck ladies xx

    Thanks for your support ladies! I had a good chat with my OH over the weekend, he has also struggled with his weight almost all his life swinging from skinny to fat many times and completely understands me.

    I realised something so obvious but it's really pushed me forward.. before I started this diet I was at my lowest, nothing fitted, I looked unhealthy, unhappy and lazy and then I found this wonder diet and dropped 3 stone quickly, I felt good, happy, healthy and attractive again and almost felt like I didn't need to diet anymore! but anyway on the weekend, we got chatting and I remembered when we first met and I was around 10 and a half stone and I'd put a few pounds on and my friends would often pinch my belly and let me know I had!! I felt so disgusted with myself that I'd go and vowed to never get so fat again :rolleyes: if only lol!! Well a few months past and I got up to 11 stone and joined weight watchers (I found my weigh in card recently I couldn't believe I ever weighed 11 stone) but gave up after a few weeks, then I made it to 13 stone and I was absolutely horrified that I had got so fat, then after a few failed diets I finally settled at around 15.7stone and stayed there for 3 years.

    What I started thinking is how did I ever get from the point that being 10 and a half stone meant I was embarrassingly overweight to getting well into the 16 stones before I had the motivation I needed..I just kept pushing the boundary further and further away.

    My lightbulb thought was that I need to remember that even at 13 stone 3lbs I am still fat, I haven't finished my journey by a longshot, Im still obese, I'm still unhealthy!

    I want to finish this chapter in my life, I've given too much thought to my belly and what I can eat next..theres more to life than food..I just need to find it! lol

    Hey Beth, nice to see you back I wondered where you had got too! I can so relate to this post, I'm currently the lowest weight that my OH has ever known me and 'head' wise this has posed somewhat of a problem, I feel really good, feel like I look good and am at a weight that I never had a problem being before, these thoughts firmly booted my head way out of the zone! I, like yourself, am having to educate myself that I am not at a healthy weight at all! I am 16 stone 7 lbs (don't know what it'll be after weigh in today!) and I am only 5 ft 1, my weight is way way off of being healthy and I know I have to keep going!

    Hope you are well and sending all my love.

    Emma

    omg that could be me!!! Exactly my problem, I feel fine so think I am fine - just because I felt so gross to begin with. But I'm not fine, I too am still obese and need to shift it! We can do it!

    I am exactly the same! I'm now lower than I have been in 3yrs and something in my head tries to sabotage my diet because I feel comfortable at this weight. Even though I know I'm a size 18 and really want to be a 14 by august. I think its because I can't remember what its like to be slim a part of me worries ill change x

    Thanks all for your lovely messages ((hugs)) well we all have to remember that we're getting there, there's been a few bumps (or easter eggs in my case) but we're well on our way to be happy and most importantly healthy! I get to see if I've managed to successfully completed my damage control tomorrow I'm hoping I get a stayed the same! Good luck everyone xx
