    Hi there

    i have spent the last couple of hours indulging in your diary - which is absolutely fabulous - I've laughed with you, cheered for you, felt sad with you and been absolutely amazed at your journey. many people have already said you are inspirational - I think you're more than that - you're honest, you're real and if I can follow in your footsteps - however scenic the route - I'll be one very happy woman.

    really thank you for sharing - I've enjoyed our time together

    Love Vee x

    Aww Vee, that's the loveliest post ever!
    It never fails to amaze me that people would wade through pages worth of my waffle, but I'm immensely flattered that you did, and so pleased that it might have given you the hope that it can be done.
    As you now know, I am just as flawed (if not more so) than most people, and there's nothing special about me or my determination/mindset when it comes to dieting. I don't mean that to be self-deprecating...I just mean that if I can do it after 11 years of a relationship with food that could probably be described as 'disordered' then anyone can

    Good luck with your own journey... I hope it's not quite as scenic as mine, but whatever happens just don't stop trying... because you never fail until you give up altogether! (and that's something I need to keep in mind when it comes to maintenence as well!)

    I hope to carry on updating regularly so there'll be more of my story still to come. In fact this is where it all begins I suppose!
    Pop in anytime and let me know how you're doing
    xx

    Happy-ish to report a STS this week.
    Happy, because I've hit 850 calories every day, and I haven't gained (coming up from 650-750 the previous week)
    The 'ish' is because I'm worried that increasing by much more may cause a gain My plan is to stick with 850 for this week but throw in about three 1000 calorie days....and then this time next week I'm stating JUDD/Intermittent Fasting because all the Christmas social stuff is kicking off...

    Can't tell you how nervous I am about taking the plunge, but I have to get myself back to a normal calorie level and a normal social life at some point...I just hope it doesn't all go t!ts up on me!

    Lol, careful Stapo...or I'll get big-headed!
    Just popping in to report a small loss this week, taking me to 10st exactly. I've been a bit daft this week though, as I've been daily weighing (something I never normally do) and I saw 9st 12.5lbs on a couple of days, so 10st feels like an anti-climax when it shouldn't!
    Anyway, as planned, I'm now making the transition to intermittent fasting/Judd, and I've just completed my first up/down weekend. It feels strange to be allowed up to 1700-2000 calories every other day, and I must admit that I've been very anxious about the potential weight gain, but I know I need to give it a chance...especially over the Christmas period, as a way of managing social events without going bonkers (as I keep saying, lol).
    My plan is to enjoy my up days in a healthy way, enjoy social events in whatever way I like, and get through the down days as if I was still on a VLCD I plan to weigh in on Wednesday morning when I will have done 2 ups and 2 down days, then it's my works do, followed by another down day.
    I'll weigh in officially on Friday morning as I'm then going away for the weekend which I'm planning as an intermediate day, an up day, and then a down/intermediate day on Sunday. Hopefully that should be enough for me to maintain...most people trying to lose weight do three downs and four ups every week, but I only want to maintain.
    What's against me is the fact that I'm coming from 15 months on a VLCD and I have no idea what my metabolism is like as a result!

    Anyway, that's enough analysis....sorry if I'm repeating myself but I'm on my tablet and can't scroll up to see what I said last time!

    Ps, the tablet is my new Samsung Note 10.1 that I treated myself to as a reward for getting to goal I took half of the money from some money that I got ages ago from cashing in some old jewellery of my mum's (not her nice stuff..just things don't have an emotional connection to).
    Sadly my mum and dad died 8 & 7 years ago respectively so they never got to see me at goal weight I know they would've been proud though....my brother reminded me the other day about when I did slimming world years ago. I was doing well at the time and whenever I used to surpass another milestone my dad would go into the pantry and drag out bags of potatoes to demonstrate how much weight I was losing....bless him I'd forgotten all about it, but it made me smile now I can say that I've finally done it....

    Thank you everyone
    Just a quick update as I now have another diary full of my self indulgent ramblings in the JUDD section.

    The main news is that I've now been maintaining (loosely) for over two months now. Christmas was a challenge, partly because of all the social occasions, and partly because food was (and still is) still such a novelty. The result was that I ended up 6/7lbs over my goal weight, but I resisted the urge to do anything drastic about it and stuck with my plan to try JUDD (up days down days).
    It seems to be working though - I'm now back down to 10st 6lbs, which is just 1lb away from my original goal, and I'm really enjoying being able to eat 'proper' food again. On the negative side I'm struggling to eat mindfully and not obsess about food, and I know I'm nowhere near having an intuitive attitude to hunger. I tend to work on how many carlories I have to "spend" that day, and try to cram as much as I can into that allowance (whether that happens to be 500 or 2000).
    In time, I'm hoping the novelty of being able to have cake/chocolate etc will wear off, and I'll be able to end the day without using every last calorie available to me!! I'm sure this is all a kneejerk reaction to living on so few calories for so long. And also because I don't yet trust myself not to count calories - I've never ever tried to maintain before so I actually have no idea what a normal amount of food would be! I've always been bingeing or dieting, so I need to get some regular meals and snacks established before I let go of the reins and stop weighing/measuring/calorie counting.

    Anyway, I hope this doesn't depress anyone into thinking that Exante will turn you into a calorie obsessed fruit loop like me! Maintaining is great actually - it's lovely to feel that acheivement of getting to goal, and I had so many lovely compliments over Christmas. In fact a few people I hadn't seen in a while actually didn't recognise me!
    I still don't think my head has caught up with my body yet, but occasionally something will happen that makes me realise that I actually am 'average'. Like the other week, I was at work (hospital) and a patient was being wheeled through the ward in her bed so I had to squeeze into a corner to make way. She was laughing with me as she went past and said "it's a good job you're nice and slim!"......that completely stopped me in my tracks!! I thought "who, me?"...but I did walk away with a smile on my face. The funny thing is that she'll never know the significance of that throwaway comment
