The reasons i am on lighter life
They say life begins at 40. I turned 40 a few weeks ago and got engaged to a wonderful and supportive man.
I will not be a fat bride this time lol
I have 2 wonderful grandchildren that i want to be able to run around in the park with.
People tell me that i am a glamorous granny but i don't feel it.
My partner is very fit and cycles every day. My bike has sat in the spare room for 3 years and has never touched the road yet.
I want to have the energy to do every day stuff without feeling sluggish and making excuse not to do them as i'm tired.
I have a skin disease which is exasperated by being overweight and causes me so much pain nearly every day.
I never want to have to shop in Evans and pay stupid prices for clothes ever again.....how can they get away with it!!!!!
These are the main reasons but i may come back with more!

Yay, you're doing really really well. Congratulations on the ankle bones!

Got a pounding headache this morning but i think it's just cause i've just finished nightshift.
A couple of people at work said they noticed my weightloss......sure they were just being kind! unless they were looking at my ankles lol
How mental is this......i needed to move my belt up a notch
Feeling a bit flat today.
Pi**ed off with myself for giving my other half the silent treatment last night just because he was sitting down to chicken kiev!
I felt so sorry for myself and had to go to my room and sob for an hour. I think it just dawned on me that i won't be eating food again for a long time....just sunk in.
Think i was grieving to be honest for my loss (food)
I wasn't hungry but so wanted to feel it in my mouth, taste the lovely flavour and feel that bursting out of my skin feeling.
I went off to work bout 9.30 and never apologised to the OH. I was too ashamed to tell him what was upsetting me.
Came in from work at 8 this morning and still couldn't discuss my feelings, that's just me, keep it all in.
I am sitting in a tired emotional state trying to get my head round this no food thing. I will not give in, that would be so easy to do and i would never be able to forgive myself.
I discussed my weight loss plan with my work colleagues, some are concerned and others give me encouragement so i think that is keeping me going too. I would hate to say that i gave up.....not an option.
So, gonna spend some time reading some more threads on here and try and snap out of this.
One year down the line i will be reading this and will have a chuckle to my slim self!
you have done amazing, nearly 4st in just over 2 months, what an achievment, well done.
I really don't think i will give in. i am finding this hard but it won't be as hard as giving up.
Had a pop in on Thurs night, day 10 and had lost another 4lb so pretty pleased with that. Can't believe that is a whole stone off in less than 2 weeks
Visited my future father in law last night and he remarked on how well i was looking....i blushed. We hadn't seen him since before our holiday in crete so i just said it must be the suntan! Can't believe that was only 5 weeks ago when we were sunning ourselves.
One month today since we got engaged too....how time flies
i visited my 18yr old daughter today, she also noticed that i looked different, said my hair and skin were looking fab. Made me smile and think it is all worth it.
Yip, feeling pretty good today and looking forward to weigh in tomorrow night. not looking for a huge loss but is still good to know how everyone else is getting on.
Well done Sunshine for loosing that first stone so quickly- amazing!
You must feel great with all those complements too- you posts are a real tonic to read and hope you don't mind me adding to your diary!
Congratulations. X jenny
Thanx jen, it does feel really nice to have people compliment me even though i don't really notice that much of a difference myself yet.
Don't mind you adding at all, glad you find them a tonic....i just say it as it is lol
Good luck with your weight loss journey, you're not doing so bad yourself, keep it up x
Had a couple of yuck feeling days, thankfully it has been my days off. Only managed to do 3 packs both days, just couldn't face any more. Also struggling with the water, only managed 2 ltrs max.
doubting myself, can i do this for the long haul....i hope so.
I haven't cheated but the temptation has been there. I have started to resent my partner for eating....what a b**ch!
I have been sleeping quite a lot also, haven't been out the door, just don't have the energy or motivation at the mo.
Need to shake these feelings off pretty soon. off to work soon, hopefully that will help keep me going.
Guess i am just feeling sorry for myself!!!!!! after all, i am the only one in the world that is going through this!
3rd weigh in tonight and i feel really nervous.
I have abstained for 3 weeks now but i feel soooo heavy today. I will be so gutted if i haven't lost.
I guess, there's no point in worrying about it but it is hard. I'm doubting myself all the time and really feel deep down that this weightloss programme won't work for me, i will be the exception to the rule.
Will be back later to update!
