    Shelly Belly's Bridesmaid Blitz

    Hello you lovely lot!

    I'm Shelly and I have my sister's wedding at the end of summer (August 30th) for which I need to SHIFT this belly. I did Dukan a couple of years ago, and had great results, but I went through a period of stress and binge eating, followed by deciding to train for a marathon, and I lost all motivation for dieting.

    But now I'm back and 3 stone heavier. Summer is here and I'm miserable being this heavy again. I feel like I have really let myself down, and I have a wardrobe of beautiful clothes which don't fit me.

    So yesterday, I ate my last Easter egg and I am here and determined to do this.

    I don't have my statistics yet because I threw my scales out about 6 months ago in a fit of feminist rage (I'm prone to those), but I'm going to buy some more tonight. I think I'm around 12st 4lb, from weighing myself on a friend's scales a week or so ago, but I'm determined to get down to 10st (although anything under 10st 7lb would be lovely right now). Last time I did Dukan I went well under 9st, but I looked quite ill and gaunt, so I don't think I'll go that low.

    Really hope that you can cheer me along in this journey, and that I can be of some support to you

    Hi Shelly,welcome to the site! I find it really helps with the diet to be on here with others in the same boat, although it's very quiet at the moment. I just started 6 days ago although like you have done this before and lost over 3 stone. You obviously know what you have to do, personally I've found it really easy to get straight back into the routine and am looking like having a big first weeks loss when I weigh in tomorrow for the end of the first week. August gives you plenty of time to be a lovely slim bridesmaid! Hope it all goes well for you x

    Thank you so much for your lovely support -

    I just read your Diary, tryin again, and I know exactly what you mean about hiding away at the weekends, embarrassed about gaining back. I cannot wait to get back into my clothes. I was so confident and Gung Ho the first time around that I chucked a load of clothes away and now I have maybe 4 work outfits... oops! And I refuse to buy bigger clothes again. Not for long though!!

    Okay, I bought new scales last night. They had some regular ones, and then some Hello Kitty ones which were three times the price - obviously, I had to get those.

    So official starting weight is 12st 3.5lbs - let's do this!

    Hi Shelly, Like you, I have done this before but stopped as soon as I went on holiday (2 stone lighter). Since then I have come back and put on 3 :/ I have a holiday in 4 weeks, which I know I won't stick to the diet on, but I am at least aiming to get back on it once I return.

    Good Luck!

    Hey guys,

    I woke up and I thought I felt wildly hungry, but on closer inspection, it turned out that my abs were just sore from the Tae Bo workout DVD I did yesterday!
    I do love the way you feel so satisfied on this diet!

    Weighed myself this morning and down 0.75lb, which is a nice start in addition to the 0.5lbs yesterday.

    My mum has been doing Weight Watchers (with great success, but I know it's just not for me, I hate walking away from a meal knowing I am still hungry) and her coach has all these nice little ideas to keep you motivated (Including putting a glass stone in your shoe after you have lost a stone to remind you how far you've come - and make you walk a bit funny all day, I suppose). One of them is to keep a jar with pebbles or pegs or pennies or something in, one for each lb you've lost. So last night I scoured the house for buttons, and put all the "weight to lose" buttons in a little tin. This morning, now I'm a lb down, I put one button into the jar. It's supposed to serve as a reminder of how much progress has been achieved. But the poor guys is looking a bit lonely, so I'm hoping that I can add a few mates in soon

    Have a good day!!

    I have the tai bo DVDs too, I'd forgotten about those but might have to dig them out again as I loved them!

    i really like the button/pebble idea, don't think I have enough buttons though lol. Will have to have a rummage. Well done on your first 1lb, they'll be several more to add soon x

    Another lb down this morning!
    Slowly, but surely, I've found a mantra that's really working for me: "Never give up on a dream because of the time it will take to accomplish it, the time will pass anyway"
    The guys in my office are passing around a giant bar of chocolate and I'm not even tempted

    Tryin again, I am loving the Tae Bo - Do you have the Billy Blanks ones? Did 'abs and glutes' again this morning. It's a killer!
    Bonkers, I will probably do one of those too - I'm a total geek and I love me a bit of excel!

    Have a great day guys!

    Yes that's the one, I have a box set of 4 dvd's the abs and glutes absolutely kills. Trying to sit down or stand up afterwards is virtually impossible!

    Good Morning Guys!!
    I had a great weekend! Did a cool yoga class on Saturday and then on Sunday I did a 5km Holi run, which is a fun run where every km they have powdered paint clouds to run through! It was fantastic!

    On the weight side of things, I did 6 days of attack perfectly and lost 5lb in total! I started Cruise with a PV yesterday and had a yumbo salad for lunch... then... disaster struck...

    I went to a BBQ last night. I had thought it all out beforehand, I took my own lean burgers and my friend said she was also doing some chicken too, so I knew it would be fine. I had planned to stick to diet soft drinks and clear spirits (and not too many at that). When I got there the host asked me if I wanted a Mint Julip. I asked what it was and he said "oh, it's just whiskey and mint, it's very refreshing"... and I thought "well, that sounds perfect..."
    So Imagine my horror when we were in the kitchen and I watched him SPOON A MASSIVE SPOONFUL OF SUGAR onto the mint leaves... and I though "oh, I really should say something now..." and I imagined having to write this post... but I didn't want to rude or inconvenience the guy, so I just smiled and drank it. I also had some BBQ sauce and I know there was sugar in that too...

    So in short, the scales are up this morning and I'm feeling really annoyed for letting myself down. It's just a lb, and with focus and a PP day it should be gone in no time... but still! I have learnt my lesson. But for the record - Mint Julips are fantastic

    p.s 6ft5? Really? I feel so tiny (height not weight)
    Hehe! opps! that's a mistake - I wish I was that tall
