    Will I get into the dress?!

    Hi, I've been on this forum for many years, with many diets, but this is my first ever diary. I thought it would be useful for me to keep me on track if I was accountable to a wider audience. Not sure if anyone will read this, but knowing it's on the internet is enough.

    So me... I started in January 14st exactly after a Christmas month eating too much. I knew my wedding dress was a size 14 and the dress ladies had said 'don't put on ANY weight' but in my wisdom I ate everything in sight!!

    Anyway, I did 2 weeks 100% TS and lost 1stone. Moved onto WS and since then my weigh my has STS. I went for my first dress fitting on Thursday and it was too tight :-( could blame TOTM or the meal I had the night before, but ultimately I was too big.

    So my plan is to 100% TS with the 100kcals extra. I'll do this until I lose another stone. Ideally, until my next fitting on the 4th March.

    So fingers crossed I can re find my determination and will power :-))

    Hi Alison, well done on your weight loss so far. You will look fabulous in your wedding dress, I bet they will be taking it in by the time your wedding day arrives.
    That rings so true with me too, someone saying 'don't put on any weight' for me is like a red rag to a bull and I am instantly looking for the biscuit tin! You can do this and you will, just think of your wedding day and that will keep you focused x

    Thank you! I do feel motivated, I know that it will be worth it when I can actually walk in the dress as I couldn't on Thursday.

    Good luck to you both too :-)

    Hi, my wedding is on the 14th April. After a weekend off the diet I feel all bloated and horrible, but that just shows how good the diet is.

    Yesterday I had a bar for breakfast/lunch, pasta carbonara and then another bar in the evening. I'm not planning on having two bars a day, but yesterday I needed something quick to eat in the morning.

    It's a bit wrong that I'm excited to start the diet again, mainly because I love food! But I know it works and soon I will see the results again.

    Morning Alison. I think there is a sort of safety net in following the diet because it is very clear cut what you can and can't have and no risk of too large portions. There are so many of you getting married in April!

    I know, it seems a popular month! The Easter holidays are my draw, means I can have a honeymoon outside of the summer, cost wise it's a little bit better.

    Been Ill today, I have a chest infection, luckily the antibiotics I have, have no instructions about food. So I'm sticking to 100% drinking hot water like it's going out of fashion!

    Thank you! To be honest it's helped with the first two awful days because I've had no appetite at all! I've had my three packs though

    Also being constantly cold must be good for my metabolism lol
