I'm going to be returning to the Cambridge Weight Plan in a few weeks time.
I lost over 10 stone with Cambridge around 3.5 years ago. I fell pregnant and had to come off the diet (I was 1 stone away from goal!) I had to stop the diet immediately, so I gorged and gorged, and yes I'm still gorging...My Son is 2 years old in a fortnight and i've got to a point where having my photo taken with him has become a big issue for me, as i'm back to where I was 3.5 years ago - complete avoidance of the harsh truth that I am a fatty and need to loose weight.
In all all honesty I have been feeling quite low about it, but spent most of my life fed up of being fat, unable to shop for nice clothes, lack of confidence...the list is endless.
I'll be honest, the year I spent doing the Cambridge plan was at times a real hard slog, yet on the flip of the coin, when I was loosing weight and throwing out bags of clothes that were like tents on my new figure, that feeling of happiness was just the ultimate prize. I found people looked at me differently too, I made a large group of friends and became more active - a confidence to do these things which I had not ever posessed before.
I tried to restart before but I just couldn't get my head into the zone. Luckily I am a determined so and so and plan to take control of my weight before it controls me. It's already beginning to take a hold on me and I just can't let it happen anymore. I miss my facial features and my feagure, so does my Husband.
I've been in touch with my local consultant and hope to start in mid February.
Here's hoping I can stick with it again and reach my goal.
