Hope your all ok?
My name is Tasha, but most people call me Mush.
Im 26 from gloucestershire and a care manager.
This has got to be my 3/4 time with cambridge. Im restarting for the final time and ill explain why.
My start weight this time is 17.6, but my heaviest was 19.7.
I started cambridge many moons ago with my mum and was successful, got down to 15.4 which was fantastic for me. Ive always been big. At school i was a larger girl probably weighing about 15 stone so i don't know what it is to be a healthy weight.
Due to doing the diet with my mum (we could so easily talk each other into being naughty), having no or little support from my ex and feeling like i was wasting my money i gave up. This happened on numerous occasions.
Im now with a partner who supports me and appreciates me for who i am, I've moved away from the family home and making a successful career for myself i feel I'm in a much more positive place to do this diet.
You really need to have the motivation to stick with this diet as I've learnt over the number of years I've done it, and i finally feel i have that motivation.
I have a few things spurring me on, and some goals along the way.
Firstly i want to show everyone who doubted me i can achieve my goals and be that person.
I want to be healthy.
I want my partner to be proud and confident to go out with me. Im not saying he isn't now, but its just how i feel.
Id like to have children in the next few years.
My brother is getting married next year and I'm a bridesmaid!
I have a strapping nephew, beautiful niece and another nephew on the way, i don't want to be the fat aunty any more.
I wanna wear the clothes i so desperately desire. Im quite alternative but feel i cant pull the look off currently.
I want to feel like me!!!
I have three main goals!
1. Get back to 15.4.
2. I have a pair of jeans size 16 and a top size 14.
3. To get to 10.7 which is my ideal weight.
Today is day one!
Ive had a ready made chocolate (my favourite), a lemon yoghurt bar (was ok but not great) and the rice pudding (not a massive fan if I'm honest). I also had some grilled chicken to get me back into the swing of the diet. I don't really want to do ss+ all the time but was advised for first week it might be a good idea. Ive also drank a 2litre bottle of water and 2 small 500ml bottles!!
I feel great at the moment. Not hungry, no head ache nothing. That doesn't mean it wont bite me in the bum tomorrow
Im going to document my journey, hopefully i can achieve my goal with the support on here and in my personal life. I have a fantastic cwpc and i love her to bits! She will keep me going
First weigh in is Thursday evening
Ill try to write something everyday to keep me focused!!!
Much love and support to all those who have read this. I know we can do it xxxxx
