    Smile Lani's journey to size 8 jeans!

    Well, seeing as everyone's diaries really motivate me here's mine. After years of yoyo-ing I've decided enough is enough! I am 30 next year and I'll be darned if I'm going to be fat in all my pics. The icing on the cake was my mates wedding in the summer where I looked like a moose, to the point that my family and friends even commented on how much weight I had put on....nice.

    Anyway a bit about how I became a lump in the first place; an emotionally abusive relationship which crushed me and turned me into a shell of my former self (thankfully I've been out of that for 2.5 years and have a fab boy'f who loves me regardless of my size) a job which can be soul destroying (I work with sex offenders), and a very unsupportive family where weight loss is concerned...all slim, I'm the black sheep.

    AND now I find myself here, needing support from you guys to keep me on track. Some days the only thing that keeps me on this journey is seeing how amazing all of you are, and knowing that if I slip up it's not the end of the world and we're all in this together

    Good Luck hun...you can do it!!

    My friends and relatives think that I shouldn't do Exante because they think that it's unhealthy but I'm using their ignorant jibes as motivation to succeed in losing weight and getting the body that I want ;-)

    I know that feeling, i'm going up my mums tomorrow....i know she'll try and force feed me and make comments *sigh*, although when I was moaning on FB about being hungry yesterday she did say "you're doing great, keep going"...i nearly fell of my chair lol.

    It's no on else's business, as long as you are not starving yourself and are being as sensible as you can, thats the main thing :-)

    Aww bless her..at least she's trying to be supportive. My mums still a bit confused about how Exante works. She's been trying to get me to eat an extra bar today so I can get essential fatty acids from the seeds in it. I'm sure they'll both get there eventually lol

    My mum doesn't get it because she has always been slim, even when she had me she put on 5 lbs throughout the whole pregnancy...my exact weight. She was a ballet dancer for the royal festival ballet so has a tiny frame, I think she thinks I'm just greedy and that's how I got fat, but it wasn't that, I just turned to food when I was unhappy. I see my relationship with food is unhealthy, and I know that I'm breaking that cycle of needing food to make me feel better, and that's going to be the best outcome from this :-)

    Wow I wish I only put on 5lbs if I ever get pregnant lol My problem is that my thyroid makes me feel tired so I eat sugary things to give me some energy. Going low carb will hopefully fix things but I'm a slow loser so I think that I'm going to be here a while. Hope you're having a lovely day xx

    Yeah I know people who have thyroid issues, must be tough :-(

    I had drs this morning and because I've had hypoglycemia since a child (but no diabetes) it gets monintored. I am having some issues because of the diet with my blood sugar, but the dr has given me Metformin to see how I get on, it does actually cause weightloss on it's own apparently but the side effects can be unpleasant, plus the Dr doesn't want me losing more than 2 lbs a week or he'll pull the plug on them...so need to be a bit careful over the next few weeks to get the right balance.

    I'm in work feeling proper sorry for myslef, had blood taken, been poked and proded and had a flu jab and I have a full day of clients to see....arrrghhhhhh :-(
