All guns blazing!
Started CD AGAIN yesterday. I'm looking for the strength and motivation to see it through. After gaining so much weight in the last year, its time to sort it out once and for all. Physically I am good right now. But mentally, I am hoping I can keep my mind on track and stay 100%. I have 5 st to lose before my 40th birthday in March. I just hope I can keep this goal in mind.
Day 2 is over and I'm taking this one day at a time.
good luck and here s to much success
Thanks Skydragon. I wish you the same on your weightloss journey too.
Well, day 3 is almost over. I had a little tiredness today, but I was very busy so I must have burnt too much energy.
I thought I would explain why I've used the title 'All guns blazing". I'm approaching my weightloss from 3 different angles this time. Firstly, I'm religious so, I've requested help from above, secondly, I have been having counselling and hypnotherapy into my weight and eating issues. I had 3 sessions, today was the last one. Finally, I am also relying on looking at as many inspiring before and after pics as possible to keep me motivated.
I have started and stopped CWP so many times, and that alone can make it difficult to start again. The feeling that you have failed over and over again and that you will fail again, is very strong sometimes.
Anyway, I have been 100% today and I hope I've had enough water. I weighed myself this morning and I weighed 15st 3. That means I've lost 5lbs in 3 days. I hope I can lose enough to fit into the dress I plan to wear to my friend's wedding next week. I think another few lbs will make it a little more comfy.
Fingers crossed for another good day tomorrow.
think you ve employed good strategies for your weight loss plan, i personally think that the weight loss battle is first fought in your head, anything that brings you strength can only help. im sure that with successful cambridge dieting til the wedding you will feel increased confidence and have a perfectly fitting dress. keep on going jx
Thanks Skydragon. I hope you're right about the dress :-)
Well, day 4 almost over. As soon as I got up, I went to weigh myself and to my disappointment I saw 15.04 st. I was baffled. How did I manage to gain weight whilst doing it 100%??? Then I woke up properly to see it was 15.04 not 15.4. Basically 15st and 2lbs lost overnight. I was really chuffed!! Although, I was really weak and shaky today. I wonder if I'm anaemic again.
I fought the urge to end CWP with some of my daughters' garlic focaccia bread. I am having to throw a lot of food away now. Before now I would eat most if not all of the their leftovers. I eventually are a boiled egg and that suddenly made me feel better. My resolve bounced back up and gave me the strength to carry on. After eating the egg I realised I should have just had an extra CWP pack instead.
So I'm hoping to see 14st .....something on the scales tomorrow morning.
fingers cross for the 14 s always nice to see a barrier gone. you should def get your bloods checked if you ve had problems with anaemia in the past but it is possibly the effect of the diet i had those type of feelings in my first week but they d passed after the 1st week
Just read your diary and your doing great, The egg was a good choice if you needed something, it's all about choices and you made a very good one so well done. You will easily be at goal by your 40th in March. Hope your not as tired today. You will soon find a sudden burst of energy so hang on in there x x
Thanks Skydragon, I am feeling much better now. The dizziness is gone and I only feel weak if I'm exerting myself too much.

So the update is that I weighed this morning and it was 14 11.8
YAY!!! I do like the '11' but I'm taking it as 14st12. This means I'm close to losing 1 stone! Before I started CD I weighed 15st 10 on MY scales. That was a week ago today. So 12lbs in one week is amazing!
I confess I had another egg last night. It gave me a little of the comfort I get from actually eating. I know I shouldn't but it was that or the pasta the kids were eating which looked yummy! Everything looks yummy right now anyway. I still struggle everyday with the temptation to quit and eat. But I remind myself that if I do, I'll stay fat, I will stay unhappy and I will look like I look now at the weddings and at the Christmas do's. I won't want any pics taken and actually, I might completely avoid going to any of these events. I'm proud of myself for sticking to it this long, almost 100%.
Today I will try not to have the egg.
I will put up a list of reasons why I shouldn't stop, on the fridge, on my mirror, and in my car. I'm planning to stay on course over Christmas and the two weddings. I want to be prepared. Low carb meals only.
I am also ignoring everyone who wants to say anything negative about what I'm doing. I'll ask if I'm better off doing this or being obese and miserable? I have no patience for the 1lb 2lbs losses on other diets. I have no time to prepare the meals I have no self control to stop at one serving. Better I don't taste any food!
So. I'm going to be good today. I get weighed tomorrow and my CDC will be so proud! Maybe another 1lb off tomorrow morning?? Lets see.
Good luck to everyone else on their journey. X
12lb is amazing :-)
Good luck for the official weigh in tomorrow x x
Thanks. I am looking forward to it!
I cheated last night. I cooked one of my favourite dishes and tasted it. Then it was like a roller coaster. I ate too much. It was just beef and some spinach & tomato sauce but today I have put on 0.6 lbs! That'll teach me. Back 100% from now on!!
I did a 30 min workout last night in the hope that I would repair some of the damage. It was hard work!!
Anyway, I'm feeling positive this morning and looking forward to my 2 packs and porridge!
Have a good day guys x
the err is human to forgive is divine and forgiveness needs to be applied to ourselves sometimes, so onwards and downwards from now on, your doing really well just keep on going

hi skydragon ive just joined this forum, I was feeling really low before I read through a lot of these comments - I started on 7th October and in my first week lost 9lbs then for some bizarre reason lost 2lbs the following week I get weighed on a fri as this is when my CDC can do it and I don't get weighed until 5pm so by the time I am being weighed I would have drunk nearly 4litres of water. after my fri weigh in just gone I lost a further 6lbs but on sat whilst drving a long journey even tho I had a choc velvet with me I fell off ate some sandwiches then stayed off until last night im back on it today and was beating myself up but feel better after my second shake I am doing SS. any advice
first off have a look at your statistics there is 5%+ less of you in 3WEEKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it took a long time to get the weight on and it doesn t have to come off tomorrow,much as that is what we d like.

i love a binge and if i ve cheated; bits of ham have been popular, i think about what i would of eaten in the past, so im trying to get it all in perspective i suppose. a sandwich compared to what?
we are very good at being supportive to other but can be so cruel to ourselves so ask yourself if it was somebody else what advice would you give? apply that to you. some times we do need a kick up the backside but not always
hope that s not too rambly now get that water down ya, cause your worth it
