    You really have done great so far!! Bless Im sorry your feeling a bit pants today though about the diet. If you are finding it hard to get back into ss how about following the steps on this thread:

    www.minimins.com/cambridge-diet-forum/9160-stepping-you-way-into-sole-sourcing.html

    I think its such a fab post and if I ever do go completely off track and cant get back in the right frame of mind Im going to be using that step down myself.

    Hope you feel better about it all soon.

    Hi Joanne,

    I know exactly how you feel:cry:

    Tried to get back SSing myself so often and failed miserably. Took me ages to accept that I would be better off following 790...

    Now that I have I am back in the zone mentally again and taking it one day at a time.

    I worked down the steps to 790 has I had over done the carbs.

    Here is a very good post that Sassy76 wrote that has helped me.

    http://www.minimins.com/cambridge-diet-forum/9160-stepping-you-way-into-sole-sourcing.html


    You have had big weight loss on SSing and I would think you would still have good losses on 790!

    Here for you whatever diet you decide.:hug99:

    Love Mini xxx

    i would say give 790 plan a go, many have used this plan and it works for them, u have done really well so far and it would be a shame to undo all the good and hard work u have put in so far, u do still have good losses on 790 and most find it easier than struggling and sometimes failing on ss :D

    I'm not going to say don't give up as I think it has to be a personal choice and this is a hard diet when you are not in the right place. However, I would urge you to think carefully about whether something like 790 would be better and whether you are just going through a low period. You have done remarkably well and I would hate for you to undo your hard work!!

    Jo, please don't give up!!! Look at your ticker, look at yourself in the mirror, look how far you have come.

    I know it's hard, but you are so close to goal, closer than you think.

    Listen hun, I deffo think you should think about 790.....please don't give up totally, you have to do this for YOU, you will regret it if you don't jo, please have another think aobut it. DOnt put yourself under too much pressure, but don't eat crap either.

    I started a thread asking if anyone does aam continuously and there are quite a few who do...I know if times are hard for me then I'll do aam or 790. jo, please don't stop completely. THink why you were doing this in the beginning.

    Sorry if i sound like i'm going on and on, I just don't want you to regret stopping cd.

    Have a nice cup of coffee, relax and think...what will you eat if you come of cd??? if you think that you will go back to eating lots of junk then you have to continue with one of the cd plans...if you serioulsy think that you will eat healthily, I mean really healthy then go for it. I just don't want you to go back to eating junk, you have been through so much with this diet as we all have and I don't want all your struggling to be a waste of time.

    THINK JO XXX XXXX PLEASE XXXXX XX SJ XX

    Oh Jo (((hugs)))

    I have had some terrible down days and even down weeks on this diet where I feel I just cant cope any more. My losses have slowed right down as well, but this week I have finally had a realisation that although CD is the fastest way for me to lose weight, its still not going to come off over night and we have to work at it.

    Please make sure you are 100% happy with your decision, but most importantly, if you do decide you have had enough, just spend at least a few days (or longer if you can face it)working through each of the steps so that you dont pile on all the weight you have worked so hard to get off.

    I know how hard it is. We all do. I have certainly felt like giving up more than once. Just want you to know that Im here if you want a chat or to rant or whatever.

    lots of love

    I know ssing can be so hard if ur not in the right frame of mind, but u've done so well it would be a shame to quit now. Have u thought about the 790 plan, at least u will be able to eat something, i'm struggling with ss right now but i can't afford to give up, u hav'nt got much to lose, ur so close to goal. Give it some thought before u decide what to do, good luck.

    I think you need to do what is right for you but if you haven't tried upping the plans to 790 or 1000 even then why not give that a go first?

    I knew I wouldnt last longer than 4 or so weeks on SS but 790 is much much easier.

    Have a good long think about it all before making any decisions honey

    NEVER A TRUER WORD SPOKEN.....MISSTINY IS RIGHT JO, LOOK AT YOUR USER ID... IT'S NOW OR NEVER. well in misstiny:)

    Most of us have chosen cd as a last resort Jo, lets face it, it is quite a drastic change in lifestyle, most of us have tried other diets and have failed miserably, I myself personally think that me cutting food out is what is working for me up to now, I don't like cutting it out, I'd much rather go and stuff my face with all my favourite foods but that won't get the weight off. I don't really know what your eating habbits were like before you came on cd, but do you really want to go back there??

    Look how many replies you have on your thread hun, we are all here for you and if we can help in any way then you gotta let us know....you can have my tel. no. if you like, or my email address, it's here if you want it. I'm here for you, we all are. No doubt I will want to give up again myself, goodness knows I've felt like packing it in... like now, as my tummy is rumbling.:eek: I really hope you think again over this Jo. Like I've already said, if you can come of cd and eat healthy then that could be the way to go, but if you know that you would go back to your old eating habits then really Jo, you have to re consider.

    I hope you're feeling ok darlin.
    I pm'd you earlier, I hope you got it. xx sj xx

    There you go......dont ever tell yourself you want to give up before you've really given it another try. Telling yourself or even contemplating giving up will put your brain in a ''i cant do this'' mode and you will find it harder. Its funny how we can be our own enemis yet if you tell yourself you can....you become your own motivator.

    GOOD LUCK to you......sending you positive vibes.....:vibes:

    That is so true, I have to walk past several fast food places on the way home through Liverpool Street and I repeat over and over in my mind "you can do this, you can do this, you can do this" and strangely my mood lifts and I walk taller, powerful thing the mind!
