    No more excuses - Prosecco's journey

    Hi all,

    I'm 32, married to lovely hubby and have a gorgeous 1 year old boy to run around after. I went on my first diet at 16 when I lost about a stone succesfully and since then have yo-yo'd between size 12 to 18 although I havent been in a size 12 for 8 years! I'm blooming well sick of being overweight and having had loads of stress over the years I have used these times as opportunities to make excuses to not do something about my weight. I have hopefully reached the point of no return and I am currently feeling so determined to tackle my weight issues. I have been stuck in limbo for the last couple of years beating myself up and trying to figure out where every diet has gone wrong, why they don't work for me and this has given me a real apathy towards seriously tackling my weight problem which has led to more half hearted attempts - you know the cycle Im sure. Recently I have been so fed up with myself, constantly avoiding photo oppotunities, rearranging my muffintops back into my jeans 50 million times a day and doing stupid things like asking the hairdresser to give me a cut that makes me slim that I have had enough! Only today and the future matters, I am going to try and forget about my 'failures', it was just never the right time before.

    So.... I stated Exante 5 days ago and have stuck to it 100% managing to succesfully get through my neices b'day party and New Years Eve (normally a big blow out night). Im defo in ketosis as hubby has started kissing me strangely . I have written down 15 goals which I will share at some point but for now I just need to get through each day.

    Anyway enough about me - I feel uncomfortably self indulgent posting this but having been a serial Minimims lurker for years its about time I put myself out there! Good luck to everyone starting their new eating regimes, I really hope we can all dig deep and get the courage, motivation and determination to achieve what we want this year.

    Feeling great this morning -day 6 and I have just weighed myself on the wii and have lost 11lbs so far which I am so pleased with! I have been pretty moody for the last 5 days and havent wanted to socialise or anything so its nice to feel more myself. Hopefully the headaches are over with now and I am drinking so much water so it must be helping. I defo feel like I have lost some too and I love that feeling, when I last joined SW (attempt no 3...4...5?) and lost 10lb it took about 8 weeks and I never really felt any different so this is very motivating.

    I have been thinking of reasons why I want to loose weight and a couple of things I have thought of today are that I am sick of always having red rims around my body where my bra and jeans cuddle me (!) me and also I hate looking at photos and the first thought is do I look fat, not how nice what a lovely momento of that moment.

    Anyway thats all for now, I will check in again with more progress (hopefully)

    Don't feel self indulgent posting. I think our main problem is we have to get out of the mindset of using food as our escape to reward, comfort or punish ourselves. Use these boards to thrash out your feelings, good and bad, best of luck..remember how strong you are, you got through New Year 100%, I would say most of us didn't (me included!!!)

    Thanks all. Today has been ok, I stuggled a bit this afternoon because I was shopping alot and think I over did it as I became really sluggish - more water I think next time. I am becoming an expert at where the nearest loo is when I am out already! Hope that I start feeling more energetic soon as I am planning on starting a couch to 5k running program from next week.

    Another reason to loose weight - the gorgeous sized 10 and 12 clothes I saw today in the sales - I really want to be there next year!

    Its brilliant that there are so many people buzzing around the forums again and positive for the new year, I love Minimims - thanks for always being there!

    Well its Day 7!!! Wow I cant believe it has come round so quickly, I feel good today although a bit bunged up - anyone had fibergel or senocot whilst doing a VLCD - will they interfere with ketosis do you think?

    Another reason I want to loose weight - Being able to buy kneehigh boots in whatever style I want and not just the stretchy pair that fit! Being able to run around after my son energetically and not in a slugglish half hearted manner because it makes me feel like an old woman! When I graduate next year I want to look slim and healthy in my graduation gown and look at the photos with pride not which ones shall I ditch because I look like a sack of spuds!

    Well done I take senokot but others recommend dulcolax pico pearls (tesco do them) they are nice and mild and keto friendly x

    Day 8 and first day back at work. I feel great today, I havent felt hungry for ages but did have mental cravings last night, hubby ate 2 WW Curries next to me and they smelt gorgeous!!! I like them even if Im not on a diet (which is always ha ha) anyhoo he also ate some jelly meerkats from M&S and they also smelt brilliant even though I'm not at all interested in them usually - Im more a choccy girl. When I sorted out my clothes for work yesterday I tried on a pair of grey trousers which I have never worn and could do them up for the first time ever, they are a bit tight but will be ok very soon! So Im saving them, I reckon they will be ok next week. I wondered also if my double chin was reducing when I looked in the mirror which was another positive.

    When I went on the Wii yesterday it said I had put on a pound which is just silliness so Im going to cut down the weighing because I dont think it is helpful every day.

    Reasons to hate being overweight - sanitary bins close to toilets and trying to avoid accidently touching them with your thighs. Being too hot and sweaty in summer and thighs rubbing together.
