    :rolleyes: .6 gone. At least more then half a pound, but sheesh - whats going on these last two weeks!! Ay yi yi!

    It was a great class tonight though. A lot of thought arose of it, and that is always good.

    I have had a funny couple of weeks, and this past weekend got very down. I was bloated, quite, and have been constipated fairly regularly. I think the cutting back water has not helped, and along with the cutting back water I have been drinking more coffee, which depletes the water, hence the constipation. But it got me feeling a bit down, and feeling so bloated made me feel fat. My first thought was, "You are gaining back all the weight you lost!" and I had a little moment of panic. Now that is an insane thought. I haven't eaten anything in 6 motnhs - how could I possibly gain weight!!?? But - still - there was that negative thought. I have not had many of them for some time now, so caught me out a bit. I didn't like it, and I need to shake it. Now.

    I gave a lot of thought to what KD and Icemoose said the other day. And that is I have got away from what I hated - don't hate what I am now - so have felt rather stagnated and comfortable.

    So. Now, my goal is still to get to 10 stone. I am getting confused and muddled up because of very many nice positive strokes from people. They all mean well, and I am grateful and love the positive attention - but I believe it has confused my mind, and given me a false sense of completion when they say how I look great now, and surely don;t have three more stone to lose. Before you all protect me, these comments are being made from a place of genuine support and care - not jealous people....so I am not worried by the comments themselves - just that I start thinking, Hmmm......maybe I AM close to done?? This alls tems from never having a true image of myself in my mind. Still.

    So - this week.....lots of water. Somethign to aim for again: 11 stone, a three stone goal, and lots of stoking that fire that needs to continue burning as strong now as it did when I lost my FIRST three stone. I am now going to lose my LAST three stone. That is my new goal.

    I feel better tonight. I am truly feeling I am ready for this diet to be over, but accept the fact that it is not. So - bellows at the ready, lets get that fire burning strong and bright again, and everyones wonderful comments will not be allowed to douse the flame.

    I am done with the diet only when I say I am done with the diet. Not anyone else - no matter how well-meaning their comments are.

    There. That's it!

    LET'S KEEP ROCKIN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    hi BL,

    im glad u had a good meeting and a loss, tho not as good as u hoped for this week. i completely understand where your coming from when u say the comments r confusing u as much as u know they r said with good meaning. iv never looked at it like that b4 but now u have explained i guess it does make sense. u have come a very long way, and the end is in sight but u can now see the distance u still have to travel which im thinking probably dont help, but i think thats cos uv been on your journey for so long. its your journey, u finish it when u want to finish it, this last 3 stone u want to lose, let it be the start of your new journey, just like when ppl go travelling, they start at a place, finish at a new place then they start from that new place to travel to another new place. BL, this is to wish u well on your new journey xxxx

    Hi BL

    Good for you girl. and so what if its a smaller loss, its still a loss. Good idea to up the water, I have been slack in that department too.

    I am attacking the next three weeks with as much gusto as I can manage, I will walk for a minimum of an hour a day and two if the weather is good. I will not put anything in my mouth that is not allowed there. And I will weigh 10st something for my best friends 40th.

    As you have been I have been "finished" in my head and I am not, I will get to that goal, I want to know what its going to feel like to get there. I revised my goal was going for 10st but now all I want is to be 68kgs (10st7) I know I can and I will and nothing is going to stop me not even me.

    Keep rocking Blonde!! The end is in sight for both of us.
