    It is really worth it?
    I just 'cheated' with some cottage cheese, celery and fat free thousand island dressing.

    The reason? I am still getting dizzy spells. I want to lose this last 11.5lbs so badly. I really do but I also want to be able to go running and cycling and have sex without feeling like I am utterly knackered and sick.

    I am sure it's because I'm not eating enough, which may be my inner fat person speaking but... I'm not so sure.

    I want to transfer to Slimming World once I am 'done' with this. At what point on the steps do you think will be the best? I understand that there's a likelihood of a small weight gain due to water and glycogen regain... how is it best to work to reduce the impact of this i.e. add carbs back slowly.

    Ramble much?

    sweetheart that is not cheating, that is having an aam or ss+ cheating is ramming a snickers down your gob or chomping your way through 6 bags of crisps
    you didnt do that, you made a reasonable choice to have something sensible
    I think you are doing fantastic, remember what this diet is to you may not be what it is to others, use it to get what You want from it, dont be too hard on yourself, you have lost alot so why not hop up to ss+ or 810
    best of luck

    I'm on 810. Sorry I should have explained. I've already had my 'limit' of food for today but I had a really passy-out dizzy spell and had some cottage cheese then thought, sod it and had a stick of celery and some more dressing.

    I suppose I am just very very very very scared that the weight loss I have experienced on CD (12st 1lbs down to 10st 9lbs) is temporary. I couldn't cope to see 11st on the scales again.

    ok i understand now, so did you not lose the 85 lb on cd?
    dont get too caught up with putting back on, at the moment you are still losing, or in ketosis, you will not unfortunately be losing that fast, but then the situation isnt as desperate as it was is it
    I know the desire to be at goal is so huge, but please just give it some time, dont panic and switch to something else just like that
    if you feel the need of a bit more aam or 810 type foods then go for it, you are not gonna gain , can you speak to your cdc about this, maybe another step up could help as sometimes putting more fuel in helps the fire burn better if you see what i mean
    all the best

    I went from 16st 8.5lbs to 10st 10lbs with Slimming World. I then put on and maintaned. I then decided that I wanted a jump start and started Cambridge at 12st 1lbs to get me down to target so I could maintain at my final weight instead of my heavier one.

    However, now I am scared that I have broken myself i.e. my metabolism or something.

    ahh yes I have that fear too, somehow that my metabolism has been messed up by all this up and downing... well way i see it if we can lose weight then our metabolic systems are working which is a good sign

    Thank you so much. I am feeling so desperate lately and this has really helped put things into perspective.

    I am tired and feeling really vulnreble and I think I am projecting this onto the 'diet'. I am impatient to get back to this 'normal life' I had a year ago yet terrifed at the same time.

    I wish I had someone to talk to but I am so scared of telling people in the real world about this 'diet' that I have effectively alienated my support network.

    I am going to split my meals into two seperate ones... I am going to think more positively in general and I am going to be grateful to you more than you could ever comprehend.
