    *hugs* sorry you are finding it hard hun - I think we all have times where we are our own worst enemy :(

    Have you tried putting pictures of yourself that you hate all around the kitchen? So that you are forced to think about every food decision you make?

    I internally tell myself off if I feel I am about to give in - I have spent the last 18 days thinking food is the enemy and it got me fat so I don't want/need it and so far I have not had anything but I won't say that I don't feel hungry or bored sometimes. I am really strict - I don't even have tea because I won't risk the milk (not sure how I have coped with that one) as it may lead to me just having a little of this or that and then I know I would be lost - I am almost seeing this as punishment for getting where I am so I have no sympathy for myself (I sound mad lol but it works for me)

    It is easy to feel down and eat and we have all done it and then you feel like crap afterwards and it just ends up happening again. Please don't feel bad that you are in this situation you are only human and we all find things hard at times and a diet like this does take a hell of a lot of willpower and drive and sometimes it can seem like we are never going to be allowed food again - but soon you will be a new you and you can wear beautiful clothes, feel good about yourself and eat anything you want in moderation without feeling bad about yourself - come on hun you can and WILL do this! One day at a time :)

    Hi Kelly, I just keep thinking 12 weeks is nothing, after years of being miserable (and desperate too) about my weight. Honestly must be 35+ years of sheer misery about my weight.
    If I could do 3 months here and get myself 'right' then bloomin heck got to be worth it.
    Try a count down maybe...one day at a time...if theres a slip so what, new day tomorrow.
    I just keep thinking...only 3 months!
    Good luck Kelly!

    Yep, I know exactly how that feels, Kelly.

    In 17 years of me trying to lose weight, I have managed to do it significantly exactly twice.

    Once when I was 22, and very highly motivated with great reasons to do it, and then again last year.

    Motivation is the key issue. I think you need to have a reason which will maintain your focus.

    I recently put almost 2st back on through general lazing about and eating the wrong things all the time, and I have arranged a meeting with some old friends at the end of September. The reason here is that I don't want them to see me at the weight I am at, so I've got until then to lose what I gained.

    For me, this makes me retain focus, so that when I'm buying chips for the rest of the family, making cheese on toast for supper, or buying the kids sweets, I am fully aware of the consequences of eating even one wrong thing throwing me off my plans, and therefore far less tempted.

    Short term goals are the best tool for me.

    Also, I like the idea of photos put up around you. I have around a dozen extremely unflattering pictures posted up by the side of my bed so that I am reminded of them every morning and every evening.

    Good luck!

    I have only managed to get my weight down once before when I was about 18 and it lasted until I was 21. I lost a bit for my wedding but I was around 14 stone for it so I didn't try that hard!

    You really really need to want it more than anything else in your life because otherwise the negative thoughts and self doubts creep in - I know I have had lots of them over the years!

    On a bad day it is so easy to feel sorry for ourselves because we are deprived of so much on a diet like this and that is hard physically and emotionally so it is easy to see why people do have bad days - it is really hard to keep having good ones but I am thinking by Christmas it should all be over and I can spend 2012 being happy and proud of myself and that thought gets me through.

    I also set time targets to have pack by and if I am hungry between those times it is tough - so I drink lots instead! It does help because I am always thinking 'oh I can't have anything it is not time yet' lol

    I am also an all or nothing type and I know if I even ate one thing I shouldn't I am likely to think 'Oh well, ruined that...I may as well eat now' Hence why I am so strict with myself because I know my internal voice will be making excuses for me and I can't listen to it ;)

    We all have our own way of dealing with each day but the most important thing to remember is you are here and you are trying your best and some days will be good and some will be bad but in the end you will get there :D

    Hi Kelly,
    I have messed about with diets for years, in fact since I had my kids and the youngest is now 29....:).. This is the first time I have really stuck to anything, my motivation is that we are going to visit our daughter in Australia end of October and from past experience there I would melt at the weight I was. Exante is wonderful, I find it easy ( well after the first week). You need some kind of motavation, if you haven't any events coming up how about promising yourself something really special for Christmas, even put money away for every pound you lose.
    As for the milk in tea, I have had milk in my tea ever since I started, maybe I would of lost more if I hadn't but I'm happy with 42lb in 11 weeks... Come on, give it a go, come on here regular, we'll all support you...:grouphugg:
