What is wrong with me!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi there

Well yesterday was day 2 for me and everything was going great untill 8pm where I caved in and ordered a take away!!!! What the hell is wrong with me? I did the plan last year and had no problems what so ever, I'm finding it such a struggle 2nd time round. Needless to say Im feeling guilty as hell today.:sigh:

Don't beat yourself up, I had the same problem trying to get back on SS and restarted several times before I got back into the 'swing' of it. Just start again today and put yesterday behind you. You've done it before, you know you can do it. Once you get to day 3 and ketosis kicks in it will become easier.

Good luck x
Thank u thin, I could give myself a good wallop as today would have been day 3 for me and ketosis wouldnt have been far off! Right Im guna put it behind me and start afresh, the take away was vile anyway which makes it worse!!!!!!

Dont kick yourself about it!

Try again from today be 100% for 3 days, one your body goes into Ketosis its soo much easier to not cave in.

Ive been on it 10 days today and can say i have been 100%, ive nearly caved in 2 or 3 times but come on here and look at the inspirational pics and it keeps me going.

Good luck hun

You've already accepted me hun :)
Don't beat yourself up about it...we're all human!

Draw a line under it and carry on as normal and use this to think of how it made you feel to try and avoid it happening again.

Come on you can do it!!

Good luck with your CD journey and dont beat yourself up when you have off days
I was exactly the same getting into W8 the second time around.

Not sure why its harder - maybe because we know what to expect and don't want that horrible dip days 2 and 3?

This is day 9 for me and strangely, I have been really hungry today! Must have knocked myself out of ketosis or something. :eek:
Hi Jules75,

Did you watch that programme about the ladies who were put on that fitness programme riding the bicycles?
Anyway their trainer said that we have an inner CHIMP inside our brains who can become very dominent sometimes. We just need to learn how to control this chimp and stay in control.:confused: I am not sure if I have made any sense at all, I am sure someone will be able to add a little to this, as it may help you in some way.:D

You are human, whats done is done. You can do it, whenever you feel weak get on hear for inspiration, x x x x
LOL, nothing's wrong with you! You're human, that's all. Doing Cambridge is tough.

As others have said, just draw a line under it, and keep going as though it never happened. :hug99:

I've been giving the 'why is restarting so hard?' question some thought over the weekend, actually. This isn't my first restart - not by a long chalk :rolleyes: but I'm determined to make it my last.

But I think it's really tricky after the first time to get your head in the right place. The first time I did it, I was almost eighteen stones. :eek: Now I'm somewhere around the fourteen mark (will find out tomorrow how I'm doing) so that's still 4 stones down - so I haven't got the same motivation. I still feel so much thinner than I did back then that I still have this little voice in my head that says, "Actually, you know - why bother? You're not that fat really... Go and eat something!"

I've been drowning that little voice out with water all weekend - and so far it's working, thank God. The thing is, at fourteen stones, I'm still obese and a long way from a BMI of 25 - and that's the bit I'm trying to keep in mind now. It isn't quite so much about what I look like anymore, but how healthy I am.

Sigh. I'll get there - cos I'm gonna keep trying until I do!!


Xmas goal, here I come!
I know exactly where you are coming from. I have been there many times. I have found that unless I am absolutley and totally ready and completely determined to start the program, there is no point in starting. Take some time to think about how you feel. Is your attitude - "I really don't want to have to do this , but I know I have to so I will" or is your attitude - " I am so ready to do this and I really want to and am ready to do it!" If its the first one, then maybe you need some more time before you start. There is no point in wasting the $$$ and depressing yourself if you're not going to follow the program, you may just not be ready and that's okay, really. Sometimes you just have to wait. YOU WILL KNOW WHEN YOU ARE READY, AND ONLY THEN should you begin, because ahead of you will now be SUCCESS. I hope this helps you, I was where you are a few months back and it only led me to failure and depression. Now I am in the right frame of mind and I know I will succeed. and when you are ready, you too will succeed! Good luck and don't beat yourself up, you know you will do it, WHEN YOU ARE READY. :)
Good Luck starting again, so many of us have succumbed to temptation like this.
When I did Lighterlife in the past, I cracked up in front of the freshly baked cheese scones in M & S. I live on my own so I am not really sure now what I was doing in front of the silly scones anyway?!

Put it behind you, start again and soon you will be enjoying the sweet success of CD, all the best to you x
Thanks everyone, your advice is priceless!! Well yesterday went fine and ive just finished a nightshift and not a thing has passed my lips other than water and black coffee, and ofcourse my packs yesterday. I was sooooo dertermined that I would stick to the plan 100% when I started and really did believe that I was in the right frame of mind to do so so I have no idea what came over me when I gave in to temptation especially as I was so very near to being in ketosis however as advised I've drawn a line under it and im powering on!!! I know that once I'm over that first week things will get easier, Ive not got that much to lose compared to first time round so hopefully the time for me to start moving up the plans will come quickly. Once again, thank u for the great support

Well done for getting through the day. It's so hard and it must be especially hard if you are working shifts.

I have just finished my second week and the hardest part has been cooking dinner for the rest of my family, its funny because some days are fine and some I have to keep my glass of water next to me and I just keep glugging away.

Keep looking forward to getting into ketosis and you will do great. Its beyond my wildest dreams to get into the 14 somethings. I have started CD at over 20 stone I can't believe I ever let it get that bad so I am taking it a week at a time and as each week comes to a close I hope I have the willpower to order another weeks worth of supplies :)


Mad as a Hatter
Your story could have been my household on Friday night... I had been 100% for 2 days and then OH took DS1 & 2 to MacD's - great I missed that one, but then they wanted to go to play area outside the local pub - well one thing led to another and we were ordering chinese on the phone in the car on the way home - via the Offlicence.
I've eaten all weekend but been to see my CDC this morning for more supplies, and have pledged that I will do it for 7 days - that's all for now - 7 days and see how I get on.

Hope that you are doing ok today and are back on the CD wagon with avengence

Keep going I know how difficult it is.

I hav probably tried to re-start about 20 times (Really!!!)......

I did restart lighterlife and lasted 4 weeks then switched to cambridge and got a bit cocky so ended up at weight watchers last wednesday. I am re-starting cambridge in the morning and know how difficult it i sgoing to be.

Nut the thing is I struggle trying to do weight watchers so might as well go for it and not bother with food. I think I am ok but then I had a drink saturday night and eat crap yesterday!!!! Same old same old...

So bit between my teeth and back on it tomorrow and am determined to get the weight off..... I have re-set my goal weight right down to 10 stone 11 lbs. Would be ok at about 13 stone but thinking why stop there might as well go for it big time and would give me a total loss of 100 lbs, imagine that, I will be!!!!

Good luck and keep posting, wish I was on day 3 lol x x x


running strictly on fat!
I did the same thing last week - went to Chinesse place eat as much as you can (blame my bf for it) and stuffed myself silly. I had to adjust my points for rest of the week (WW) but it WORKED! and I am still on track. Don't deny yourself guilty pleasures (now and then) - it doesn't affect your goal in a longer run as long as you find the right balance. Good luck sweetie :)
I know I can which is the frustrating part!!! Ive been extremely good since then so Im focusing on my first weigh in and hoping I havent done too much damage
