    Smile Dream! Believe! Achieve!

    My constant procrastination has seen me restart plan multiple times, move from slim and save to exante to my own modified VLCD. Bounced from forum to forum, plan to plan which has all mentally drained my strength.

    I have got so big that I am nearly a recluse. Being a full time carer for my mum provides the perfect opportunity to make excuses not to leave the house, comfort eat when her condition gets worse and just feel terrible in general.

    I have always been a fit healthy runner but unfortunately suffered a terrible knee injury which literally immobilized me. I gained some weight which I successfully lost with CWP. I did not take maintenance very seriously and gained 30 lbs during that period. My mums condition got worse, I quit my job to care for her full time hence the emotional eating. I have binged! binged! Late night binges, early morning binges and with my emotional state led to a further 6 stone weight gain. I am so ashamed.

    I found several CWP Consultants but my procrastination + constant excuses led to failure. Excuses from there is no point... It will not work again.... I have bad stretch marks... No one cares if I stay unhealthy......I will start tomorrow.....etc You name the excuse, I used it.

    I had to sit and have a talk with myself (literally) and decide if I would prefer to remain unhealthy or believe in myself and get the happy me back.To be honest, I am scared of failure and the unknown right now but I think it is also part of my sub-conscious making excuses. This is why the accountability with CWP works for me. I chose to dedicate myself and do this. I have cut out negative people even friends with foodie issues until I lose at least a fair amount of weight. I cannot afford any distractions. I am working with the most amazing consultant who does not tolerate excuses. Love her

    So........... Tomorrow is day one of week one and will post daily but nothing to do with weight or how much I have lost. My diary right now will focus on my struggles and highs as I grow emotionally. Thus, I will post when I reach my goal with pictures for now my goal is to take it a day at a time and go to bed a winner. Join Me.

    Apologies for the long post and good luck to you all xx

    I can identify with your post as I have been going around in circles after gaining my weight back on and have started back on Lipotrim as that is the one I had most success with as I find the weekly weigh in helps me to be accountable and having a nice understanding/supportive consultant really helps.

    I look back now and see the importance of follow maintenance properly... unfortunately at the time due to emotional stress and not being in the right frame of mind at losing a loved one along with another family member being very ill I lost the plot...but we all do what we can to cope and mine was stuffing my emotions down with food.

    The main thing we are here now and hopefully a little wiser

    Good luck PP with your weight loss journey, you did well before and I am sure you will again.
    Love Mini xxx

    Today has been very interesting. I was consistent but had some chicken. I tried my best to remain 100% but had to sit for Father's Day meal with family. I used it as an opportunity to explain to my family about plan and as of now no more solids. Shockingly they were supportive. Wished me the best. I was so happy to see my mum feeling a little better today

    Regardless how supportive anyone is, I know have to work had to deal with my emotional eating.

    Hope you all are well and have a blessed evening xx

    B- Apple and cinnamon porridge
    L- Chilli soup + some chicken
    D- Maple porridge
    Water = 4 litres x

    I too am a carer for my disabled child and I think it makes a huge difference to your physical and emotional well-being. Each day can bring a new worry and a new reason to head for the biscuits, so I feel as though I am battling with my food demons every minute of every day. I am determined to see this through, even with all of the eating setbacks I suffer.
    Weight loss so far = 30 lbs BMI 27.1
