    4 years to the day...

    and I am back to where I started from I am disgusted with myself especially as I am back to my heaviest again. I did CD 4 years ago and lost 8 1/2 stone in just under 6 months. I have spent the last 3 1/2 years going up and down - Totally my fault - back into my old eating habits, and spend years on a 'day before the diet' binge. So here I am again, desperate but determined to make it work this time. My knees are sore, my back aches and I don't have the energy for even basic housework, let alone all the things I should be doing, so something has to give. This Sunday (was the 27th) in 2010 I hit rock bottom and phoned a CDC in desperation, arranging an appointment for first thing the next day (28th) so today I started again this morning, hoping that the date link will inside me to get through the first few weeks and keep going. I still have a spreadsheet of my week by week losses from before so it will be interesting to see how it compares this time.

    I will be very grateful for any support as I go - I know last time this board was my lifeline, everyone was so generous with their support and encouragement.

    Hi there BessieB, I've also returned after a long spell away ( I lost 6.5st in 2012 )

    It's awfully sad we are both back here ( along with others ) but don't look at the negative, I focus on the point I'm back here as I know it works, and I know it works fast. Within weeks your knees will feel better and you will get the buzz back the fast results give us. Lots of us struggle with maintenance but lots still post here who crack it so lets crack this together once and for all !

    Hi AngelupNorth,

    Thanks for support :-) Your restart is a week before mine - when is your first weigh in? Im not actually seeing my consultant until wedneday but was able to start yesterday as I had a box of shakes stashed away. Day one gone , just trying to focus a day at a time and aiming for that first 100% week.

    Hope all goes well this week for you.

    Thanks love started a week today so weigh in is 12 noon.

    Once you get the 1st few days out of the way you will fly through it. By the time you see your CDC on Wed you may be in Ketosis and as you know things will get much easier.

    Each day in is a day closer to being back where we want to be :-)

    HI Willpowerwoman - thanks for asking - had a rubbish first week - do fine til lunch time then pick/nibble. Managed 7 lbs hover the week though so can't be too disappointed. Had a revelation moment on way back from weigh in yesterday - was thinking what I could eat for the day and still get away with for next weigh in. Suddenly this thought popped into my head saying "do you want to lose the F#### weight or not!" don't know where it came from but really drove home that I am only cheating myself. Managed all day yesterday on SS and again so far today - I know if I can crack the next few days I will be on my way so i am trying to hold that though!!

    How are you doing with your restart? how much do you have to lose - I am needing to shift between 8 1/2 and 10 stone depending on how things go as I get down to the lower end!

    Hey Bessie 7lbs is a great start! I have 5 more stone to loose. I'm on step 3 as I exercise so it's a bit slower but although I have the odd blip it is just that, a blip and still over all it's going well.x

    HI WPW, Yes I know 7 lbs is good but I am used to losing 13 or 14 in my first week - but can't blame the diet - this was down to me nibbling. Anyway onwards and downwards - since that voice yelled at me on Monday I have managed to be good as gold and am feeling thinner (in my head I know but its a good feeling). Another 4 off so far this week. Of for some exercise in a bit so that will make me feel good as well!

    Hope you and Angel up north are doing OK this week - its great to have people to chat to

    Bessie we all crave the big numbers as we feel we deserve them more than other diets & I fully understand. You may find you have a larger than average drop next week ? Keep up the great work.

    Day 18 for me & 3rd weigh in on Monday :-) still going strong and loving all the extra motivation & inspiration these pages create x x x

    Hi everyone, hope its ok to leave a message. I was on this last year and it worked great but then just slowly stopped. Back on it again but today is my first day , like you bessie i had some left over shakes in a box so using them until i can get to my consultant.
    it would be great if we can go on the journey together. I actually have quite good willpower , the thing that gets me most times is my b'friend can eat anything and stay skinny! If he's munching on something or eating dinner i look at him and think ok i will start properly from tomorrow.
    Im determined to think differently and actually remember how i felt last time when i lost albs in my first week and then every week just felt better and better and how those clothes felt on me. Have a holiday on 12th dec so i want to stick to it for that too.
    Hope your all well this morning <3

    Hi all

    I'm also back again!!! did Cambridge back in 2009 and lost 4 stone and now back with the 4 stone and more to loose!
    I'm going to class Tuesday night so will be starting on Wednesday! I want to loose about 10 stone!
    only thing I'm panicking about is I have a wedding in 2 weeks time and already put my food choices in, but feel like whenever I start won't be a good time so I just wanna get on it!

    Hi Ketty and Sam

    Good to have a couple more on board! Ketty hope first day back has gone ok- just finished my first 100% week so hopefully back on track now.

    hubby is sulking cos I just told him I didn't think it was very nice of him to get into bed next to me and start eating a crunchie so he's stormed off to the spare room. I really feel he is trying to sabotage me this time.

    Got it my weigh in first thing tomorrow so will discuss how to handle him with CDC.

    Ouch that is mean Bessie! Men are such funny things! Mine makes little comments like "you better do it properly this time" as I always start and end up stopping for one reason or another! Then in the next breath it's " well you will still have a treat once a week won't you, like a takeaway" or before when I did it "oh just have 1 sweet it won't hurt you" when he knows my weakness is sweets!
    I think sometimes men are secretly scared of us becoming thin and desirable! Or maybe they are just annoying!!!!
    Well don't for telling him off! Good luck for tomorrow's weigh in I bet you will do fab! How much you wanna loose?! I got a massive journey! But just wanna start now!!
