Surfhunny's Countdown to Florida
Hi everyone, after weeks of messing about with this diet, I'm going to be back on track after Thursday. I've had so much on my plate lately ( no pun intended) and I needed to get through these past few weeks with minimal amount of damage - which I have, so my last event is a Christening on Thursday.
So as of Friday morning - I AM BACK ON... THE CD WAGON. And I'll be sticking to SS 100%, with nothing to get in my way.
The reason for this new change of heart - I've just booked up to go to New York and Las Vegas with the girls in Nov. They're all gorgeous and slim and I really don't want to be the fat friend on the holiday photo's. So Operation Showgirl starts on Friday.
PS I have no intention of becoming a showgirl while I'm in Las Vegas, but it doesn't hurt to dream about having the body of a Vegas showgirl
- Rep Power
All the very best hun vegas is wonderful loved it there sooooo more.! x
good luck!!!!!! you can do it!
I'm itching to get started back on SS, I can't wait for Friday and I can't believe I'm wishing the week away. But I guess it's a good sign that I'm desperate to get started, hopefully it means I'll stick to it this time.
I've been looking at my photo's from the first time I went to New York and they've reminded my why I'm doing this and hopefully they'll keep me motivated. In fact I might stick a couple of them on here in case my motivation slips. Just a big fat reminder The last picture is me in 2008 to remind myself that I can do it. And I have done it before.
Right I've been for my dreaded weigh in and this is where I am:
14st exactly (196lbs)
So I have 31lbs to lose. Starting Friday.
Good luck, you can do it! You look fab in your last picture, you'll be there again in no time!
I've also been thinking how I'll maintain - probably get the last 5lbs off with WW so I can weigh in for free haha!!
Will pop back tomorrow to see how your first days getting on x
He he thats exactly what I was planning on doing but with SW. I know I can maintain my weight following SW - I did for years (but maintained it at 16st 8lbs - not exactly target weight lol).

So this is what I'm planning tomorrow:
Breakie - Chocolate shake
Lunch - Banana Shake
Tea - Tiramisu (made with vanilla shake, MAM and tsp coffee, num num).
And lots and lots of H2O all day long.
I'll test on Sat for ketones although I imagine I'll hit ketosis on Sunday, bring on the pink!!
surfhunny - good luck! go for it and just think of vegas. how you getting on today? i've had a crappy week (done okayish) but no TOM which was due and i feel bloated! good luck and although you look gorg enough in your pic, i am sure you can get to goal and feel better about yourself!
Yay It's Friday at last!! I'm so happy to finally be able to get started!!
So far so good. I've had choc mint shake for breakfast and 1.5l of water so far. And I'm feeling okay! I'm delaying my lunchtime shake because I'm not feeling hungry at the moment, so I'll save it for later.
This morning I've tidied the house and thrown away all the food that might tempt me. I came across a half full bag of Werthers choccies and I was soooo tempted to just have one, but I didn't , I was strong! I even went and put them in the outside bin so that I can't get them without the neighbours thinking I've taken up Dumpster Diving. That in itself has been an achievement.
I've made the conscious decision that I'm not going to let anything but Cambridge and water pass my lips. This is how I did it in Round 1. I've also been thinking a lot about why I was successful the first time round and not been able to repeat it since. Here's what I came up with:
The first time I did Cambridge I wanted to do it. I was excited to start and couldn't wait to see results. Every other time since I've felt like I needed to do it. The difference is very subtle in the wording, but I think the emphasis changes everything. This time round I want to do it. I want to get rid of the weight and see results. I don't need to, I could stay the weight I am, I'm not hugely fat, or unfit, my blood pressure is normal etc. So now the only reason to do this is because I want to!!
I can't believe it's taken me so long to come up with that. But it really was like a light going on in my head this morning
I'm really looking forward to my next weigh in instead of dreading it like I usually do.
One final thing I was thinking about was this: while I've been with my current CDC I've yo yo'd up and down at around the same weight that I am now. I'm not blaming her in the slightest, she has supported me and offered me countless idea's and different approaches to the diet, but she wasn't the one making me eat - that was all me!! So I'd really like to prove to her that I CAN DO THIS, and I can be a success story for her, instead of the whiney client who goes in, gets weighed and then sulks when the weight loss has been poor or non-existant!
Phew I really have done a lot of thinking this morning - I might have to go and have a lie down . I'll pop back later and let you know how the afternoon has gone. xxx
Ha ha that'll be 2 birds with 1 stone, and you'll be the best OH ever lol. I'm just going to have a quiet afternoon in, watching movies. It's not often I get time to do things like that so while I'm on day 1 I'm going to treat myself with movie men, not food!

Glad your first day is going well. I think this diet makes most people think - no time to think what can I put in my gob next...
I think a CD Legal thread would be great - I have my shakes either hot or cold maybe they'd be something new I could try
