    New me

    Hi well I am back again, I have tried the Cambridge a few times but keep quitting and not seeing it through
    I have just got back off a 2 night cruise and felt disgusting and awful!! All because I eat too much and keep bingeing I have serious issues with food and believe it is an eating disorder! I over eat all the time so I am determined to do this this time for me, for my relationship and for my 2 boys!

    What I wish I could have done on the cruise -

    Wore a bikini
    Wore an amazing dress at formal night not just a skirt and top that I didn't love
    Felt confident walking around the ship instead of worrying people for looking at me!
    Gone swimming and in the hot tub
    Used the spa!
    Walked without my thighs rubbing together

    I have decided to be strict and for just 4 months I could lose atleast 5 stone if I stick at this!!
    I need this to be quick so I can enjoy life again!

    I figure I give myself a year to lose weight and be slim and see what it actually feels like to be slim as I've never been slim wear nice clothes and surly once I'm there I won't want to go back to how I am!?

    Well I will write my feelings here and take it day by day and would love support to keep me going

    Here we go I know this won't be easy but surly will be worth it!!

    Just back from a 14 night med cruise on independance of the seas! Loved it so much and planning next one already but this time I will be happy with my weight and will wear all the pretty clothes I want to!

    Good luck. I am also doing ss as it's all or nothing for me! I find it easier in the nice weather as I don't really have an appetite so just get into a routine of shakes

    Oh amazing!! I've done 4 nights on that ship a few years ago, wow the food on there is amazing!!!
    But I agree I want to feel happy and wear gorgeous clothes I want to book a longer one for next year or year after where I'm looking and feeling my best!

    All or nothing works for me too and I need to see quick results I just need to keep the weight off!
    I'm just worried about picnics in the summer but I'm in the mindset that feeling and looking good is better than food but I'm only on day one so I know I could struggle soon!!

    Day 2 coming up here we go!!

    I weighed in with consultant at 16.13 can't wait to see the scales next week!
    I'm at ascot Saturday for the day which will be tricky as you take a picnic in and our friends always have lovely m&s food I'm gonna try hard to stick to water and shakes but if I struggle I will take a small chicken salad so I can eat but not cheat. I'll be in ketosis by then tho so hope it won't kick me out :-/

    Well here's to day 2 off we go xx

    Yay day 5 here I come!! Gonna be kept busy today so should be an easier day I struggle more when I'm working as I work from home and just sat at a desk so mind easily drifts to food but again no cheating yesterday

    I did have 2 shakes and a bar as had a couple left over from when I last did Cambridge so will ask for a few on Monday to keep me going even tho consultant said no to them until week 3.

    I've never tested for ketosis before and wish I hadn't bothered day 5 and still says I'm not in ketosis so I don't get it as not cheated at all!!

    Well I'm feeling good and not hungry so let's have you day 5!!
