So 12 days on from my last post I am Imodium free and in a state of sweaty euphoria having just completed the dreaded w5r3. Thank you to this forum and particularly to Cloudchaser for the inspirational Finding Nemo mantra "Just keep swimming, just keep swimming"- it worked (especially in the rain earlier this week!) and I'm now adopting it for life in general... Seriously all the positive comments were brilliant and so true. I shocked myself by actually enjoying it (well the sun was shining in a blue sky with fluffy white clouds and the endorphins were kicking in) and am now actually looking forward to W6!! So to anyone dreading this milestone, you really can do it - the programme works.
