Well I am back. Been AWOL from Minimins for near enough 2 years I think (bar the odd brief drop in!). But now I am back, and I am a woman on a mission!!!!
Who am I? Well I am a single mum, 32 and ENORMOUS. The most enormous I have ever been and now it is time to do something about it once and for all.
I joined Minimins in mid-2008 and found it invaluable. At the time I was doing Cambridge and made lots of lovely friends on here and lost a mahoosive 5 stone in 3 months. Then it all went horribly wrong - my mum got sick, we found out she was going to die, we lost her in 2010, and the last couple of years have been a horrendous mix of grief, depression and eating. I am so grateful to have my daughter, she has kept me going through everything.
I am finally in the right place to be able to do something about my weight. I've decided that TFR is the way forward for me as it is the only thing that really works (for me). I am off to meet a new Cambridge Consultant on Monday (have moved a few times since last time!), but am still undecided between Cambridge and Slim and Save. Like the personal contact that you get with being to be weighed each week! Makes me feel like I have something to aim for each week, and concerned that without that on Slim and Save I will lose focus and motivation quickly.
So some initial goals...
Stick to diet for 1 day/3 days/1 week/2 weeks etc
Drink lots of water
Make sure I see CDC every single week (if that is route I choose)
Be significantly slimmer before my August holiday
Keeping a diary/blog helped me so much last time when I lost the 5 stone. That is why I have started anew diary and want to up date it at the very least weekly!!!
