    Hi everyone,

    I did CD over 3 years ago and lost just over 3 stone and felt fantastic, But due to serious illness I had to stop. In and out of hospital people kept buying me boxes of chocolates and sweeties and I admit I scoffed the lot like a little piggy. I was very depressed finding out I had ovarian cancer and having to have major surgery, and not being able to have any more children. So like a lot of us do I turned to food for comfort. Then the weight started to creep back on. At first I blamed the HRT but honestly it was all the food i was stuffing in my mouth. Now I'm back to where I started?

    ?But now it's time to break the vicious cycle I'm on day 2 of SS and feeling positive that the weight will come off and stay off.

    Thankyou for the support it's nice to know other people understand how hard CD is. Had a horrible day yesterday went along to support my husband at a motorcross race at Manby and everyone was eating bacon sandwiches. But some how I managed to stay strong and stick to my water and CD.

    Well that was until we got home I was so tired from moving his bike and all his gear around and walking miles round the track I broke. I had to eat something I was reasonably good I had some chicken and a little bit of salad. I don't feel bad about it much but back on track today. I know I can do it.

    Well chicken salad is SS+ so you're still in plan :)

    Good luck to you, I can totally understand why you put the weight on in the first place, it must have been a horrible thing to have to go through. Well done for getting back on CD.
