Thanks Caroline - those first few weeks seem to take ages to pass by! I'm dying to get on the scales again and I only weighed on Sat!
I have the day off tomorrow so I'm going to crack on with all my Uni work - this week is going to fly so it will be WI day again before I know it! X
You are indeed, doing so well! Very inspiring! It's all coming back to me now..........that focus I once had and how I just couldn't wait to next weigh day!! Really want to get that back. Doing OK -- finished day 3 of SSing although I admit I ate a mint humbug on Friday after my swim! Just habit really. I forgot not to.
Will have to have tandoori chicken on Tuesday as going out with friends but hopefully that won't affect things too much. Onwards and downwards hopefully, just looking for the scales to move a couple of lbs at least!
What's a mint humbug among friends, F? I wouldn't worry about that - there are also worse things than tandoori chicken (is that the dry one?)!
Thanks, Caz - I'm spending the morning catching up on all the programmes I've recorded! Starting to watch Game of Thrones again in preparation for Season 3 which starts in April - can't wait for that!
I have a long day at Uni tomorrow - 9-5 with no breaks so not sure when I'll fit my bar in! The lecturers normally kick us out 10mins early so I might cut my bar into small chunks and just sneak a few between lectures! I can't even sneak them in lectures because my classes only have about 6 people in them!
Day 17 - I saw a girl's weight loss chart that she made on the Facebook group. She'd stuck motivational pictures on it and it looked great, so I'm thinking I might have a crack at one of those because I could pin it up somewhere and see it every day
I'm dying for 10am to get here - the Uni of Leicester is announcing whether the skeleton found under a car park is that of King Richard III. I'm stupidly excited about it! I'm certain it is him - I'm such a history/archaeology geek!

Hi Nefetari, I hope you don't mind me jumping in here, I only just registered but have been reading all your posts about your fantastic weight loss on the VLCD, namely Slim & Save. I started last Monday and up to Friday had lost 8lbs but then had a badish weekend - eeeeek! So, straight back on it today. I lost 5 stones in 5 months on LighterLife in 2006 but it gradually piled on again, especially last year! 2012 was a horrendous year for me, I lost my Mother and my self-employed hubby had no work and I comfort eated my way through it all! So, here we are in 2013 and I AM DETERMINED TO GET THIS FLAB OFF ONCE AND FOR ALL !! I know it's really stupid of me, but I was scared to jump on the scales this morning.....ridiculous eh? But, I actually feel thinner today, jeans are looser so I am going to be brave and weigh myself in the morning! Reading your posts and how well you are doing has really motivated me.....I LOATHE being so fat, LOATHE not being able to wear the clothes that I want to wear and LOATHE what all this flab is doing to my health! At 55, I HAVE to get rid of it. Up to now, I have been really healthy and seem to have 'got away with it'....but it won't last....it can't! So this is the year for me and the year I will lose this flab and get healthy and slim !!! ........ P.S.....I too am a history geek!! Do you watch 'Cold Case History' on tv? Brilliant - sooooo interesting! Possibly finding the skeletonon King Richard III under a car park is going to be facinating viewing tonight!!

The best thing to do is just get right back on it if you have a bad day/weekend/week/month!!! I always think if I had just carried straight on again, I'd be at goal by now!
We can all do this - we just have to keep plodding on
Feel free to keep posting on here - I often just talk to myself if Caz and night-owl aren't about! Xx
I know! I nearly cried - so emotional. What a loser haha!

I too have lost it (with Cambridge) and put it back on again when I packed up smoking so I can remember well how good it was to be slim and so want to be able to get back into my clothes as I got rid of all my bigger sizes but it is harder second time round, especially without the cigs!
Funny I was reading about Richard III just before I came on here. It is amazing. What really gets me is that they took the DNA from someone who can trace her family tree back to him and that's what proved it. Also amazing that he got so deeply buried over the years and had a car park built on top!
I love all that lineage stuff - I started tracing my family tree and got back to the 1800s but haven't had time to carry on.
Don't talk about remembering what it was like to be slim - I'm so disgusted that I've gained back the 7st I lost on Cambridge. Disgusting! I felt so great - why the hell did I let it go back on?!

I keep seeing photos of people's swede chips - I'm dying to try them! I'm so scared of putting anything other than the packs in my mouth though in case it affects my losses (when you have as much to lose as me, you don't want anything to slow down!) - I remember when I did Exante before and I had a tin of tuna every day - I lost more than I did on Cambridge doing that and it was more calories! Perhaps I'll try having the protein and veg meal at weekends (I've been feeling exhausted at work) and then sticking to packs during the week. That way, I can enjoy a treat but still remain in control (or feeling like I'm in control) during the week. Plus, I weigh on Sat mornings, so if the meal does affect my losses, I have 5 days to pick it up again before WI. I think I might start off with chicken/salmon and lettuce and cucumber - keep it simple! Only 4 days worth of Exante shakes left - if I have two a day, they'll be finished on Friday. Hoorah!
