I've been a lurker on the forum for a while and finally decided to take the plunge into the Cambridge Weight plan. In the past 5 years, I have crept up from 9st 7lb and a size 10 to 14st 4lb and a size 16-18. At just under 5ft, my BMI is 39!
I met my consultant today (who was just lovely!) and I'm all set to go. Unfortunately, I under-estimated how difficult it would be and after a chocolate shake, a chicken and mushroom soup and 1 litre of water, I caved! I completely binged and at 5pm this evening after many tears, I ate:
4 slices of brown toast and lurpak
A Laughing cow cheese dipper
Salt and Vinegar Walkers
Talk about a binge!
After this (and more tears about caving!) my husband took some 'before' pictures for me in my underwear. I was completely embarrassed. In my head, I look much smaller than I do in the pictures. I guess that's part of the problem (that and never, ever looking in full length mirrors!)
Instead of thinking, 'I'll start again tomorrow', I decided to start again from that moment. I've drank another litre of water and haven't eaten anything since my binge. Normally, I would have had dinner by now, some more chocolate and probably another packet of crisps
Back on the wagon now and I don't intend to come off again. Onwards and upwards
