I was doing so well and now I've spent 2 weeks sabotaging it! It was the bloody scales that did it; I weighed myself and the thought process was "oh fab I've lost lots, that means I can go off and eat whatever the fuck I like."

I'm weighing myself in the morning and I know there will be tears. Any advice for how I turn it around? I'm so worried my motivation is all gone after 2 weeks of "one more day and I'll get back on it". Today was going to be the day but I've had a cornetto, a chocolate mini roll, a jammie dodger and a kinder bueno.

I'm practically in tears ffs. I've tried and failed so many times and I told myself this would be the last time. I have 2 young DC and I don't want to have a heart attack or end up with T2 diabetes. They deserve better!

Told you I was a twat.

try making ice lollies yourself, just fruit puree/coconutwater/bit of honey for example.
Or banana icecream, really just frozen bananas whizzed up with some almond milk or on own..
And I have found just freezing fruit(Esp banana) in slices is actually really nice and can be a sufficient replacement for ice lollie etc in the hot weather (live in tropics so am constantly craving ice cream etc!)

Hi Ivana, I'm in the same position! After years of going to and from WW, trying different diets etc, I'm finding low-carb is working and now I've done a few days of it, it's getting easier.

Do you weigh yourself every day? I try to do it every fortnight because when I did it every day and one day I happened to put on a pound, I'd be 'sod it, I'll have whatever I want today', but I'm finding that every fortnight I've either lost some weight or stayed the same and that's encouraging me on!

Just remember you did so well before, so you can do it again <waves pompoms>

Pickles, like the ice-cream recipes! Do you know if freezing over-ripe bananas is ok? I try to use them up in smoothies but a couple usually end up getting thrown out. If they're on the turn and I can freeze them, that would be much better

yes overripe is fine.. you can either just slice and freeze and eat ( I think they are yum like this)
or, ice cream recipe: freeze 4 ripe bananas (sliced) mix in processoer with 1/2 cup almond milk (or regular milk) , 1 tsp van essence and 2 tbsp maple syrup (or I use honey but this tends to freeze in chunks, I like that though!) yummy!

Thanks pickles, will give it a try smile

I weigh myself a couple of times a week tilly. Weighing doesnt do me any good though because the number on the scale is always an excuse for a carb binge!

I really need to work on weighing less, but I'm worried that without the scales I won't know if the diet is working or not until months have passed!

Banana ice lollies sound fab but bananas are really carby and definitely not allowed on bootcamp.

Yes the Icecreams sound very very carby. When I need an icecream treat I smash frozen rasberries into double cream. Very rich but super tasty. Not good on bootcamp but ok for bootcamp lite.

Uber bootcamp is 3 very strict bootcamp days. on the spreadsheet of fabulousness there is a tab with menus and shopping lists.

Basically 3 days of only 3 meals, no dairy (butter allowed) no snacking. I've found doing it helpful in the past. I;ve picked these three days because it's ramadan so partner is eating during the day then he is doing afternoon shift so is eating at work.

My biggest plan for this evening is dinner put small boy to bed, quick tidy, then study til 8:30 pm, then watch broadchurch (in Oz) and not have a glass of red wine

Thanks for the link hazchem. Uber camp sounds like it would be fab for a kick start. I'm a bit wary of it though because I really don't do hunger well...it tends to trigger massive carb binges!

I'm pleased to say that on day 4 of being back on track my splitting headache has gone...woo hoo!!

I have had a couple of handfuls of nuts though blush I'm struggling with what to eat for snacks other than cheese. I'm still needing a morning and afternoon snack but don't want egg because I eat eggs for breakfast, and too much cheese will slow down my weight loss.

I'm going to weigh myself on Tuesday to make sure what I'm doing is working, then I'm putting the scales away.

I've also been waking up with headaches and feel pretty shitty today.

I've had a couple of fat bombs as snacks. they are a bit weird/full on but at least it's break from nuts and cheese. Looking forward to just bootcamping tomorrow

Well despite a McDonald's on Sunday (burger, fries, mcflurry) I have lost 6 pounds in the last week!!!

I'm so motivated to carry on too smile
