    Hi everyone!

    I dont know whether any of you will remember me, but I did lighterlife last year and lost six stone, I had a blog Lisa's Lighterlife diet - iBlog, Do You? and used to post on the discovery health and leisure website. Well I am back, I am thoroughly disappointed with myself for putting nearly all my weight back on, but I am here and going again.

    I restarted last Tuesday and by Thursday had lost six pounds, but why is it SO much harder this time? I have unbeleivable cravings, cant stomach the packs and feel really miserable. I was so happy doing it last time:cry:

    Its weigh in tomorrow and I am sure I will feel more positive then put I have not been 100% abstinent and have chewed food and spat it out, will it affect my ketosis - its so hard :sigh:

    I am going to do it though, I need to somehow break through this feeling because I will be in a dress by my xmas party!

    Wish me luck!

    Hi Lisa,

    Your very welcome and well done on your weight loss.

    I would love to have a definitive answer for you as to why it is so hard second time around, all I know is that it just is.

    As they say the first time around is the Golden Time and I think myself this is so true as since I regained by weight it has been up and down and on and off since.:break_diet:

    I am back again today giving it my all, fingers crossed and :innocent0001: hopeful.

    Best of luck with your Christmas party dress, have you picked one out to wear:confused:

    Love Mini xxx

    This is my second time around to and I am now just into my 3rd week and I have to agree with you the first two weeks were a nightmare I felt really depressed but now I have got through this and having lost 16 lbs in my first two weeks I am now really positive about sticking to it at least for the next 9 weeks just in time for Christmas and the party season then I am going to join weight watchers to make sure I keep it off.
