    If I want it bad enough, I will do it.......

    Hey guys.

    This is prob my 4th diary over the years but I'm determined it will be the last.

    Started and restarted many times over the last couple of years. Each failure has seen me get a little bigger each time and today I find myself at 16 stone 5 lbs. Saw pics of myself the other day and can't hide from the fact that I am so wide! I could cope with the tummy out the front but the width of me has made me say enough!

    I am a pig. Once i start eating i cant stop im either v v good or v v bad.I have a couple of mini targets along the way. 8 weeks tomorrow I go on holiday. Came back from the same place in Spain 2 weeks ago. We have friends that live there and I would love to go out again and have them all say on god you've lost weight.

    2nd target is to lose a considerable amount by Nov. For the last 2 years I have applied for my dream job as cabin crew. Seems ridiculous I know, me cabin crew. It takes so much guts to walk into the assessment rooms with all the skinny Minnies but I make myself do it. Why don't I lose the weight first! I normally get down to 15 Stone by interviews which is not low enough. However I always do really well on the day, get thru to the final stages and when they only take a couple on its never me. I can't blame them, I wouldn't take on someone who wouldn't do the uniform justice so if I want it bad enough this year I need to sort the weight out.

    I hope you will all help me on my journey and if there's anything i can do for you just ask

    And thank you to bob123 for encouraging me to take this step

    Hi Missmoss

    definitely lets do this together.

    i will be doing this with coke zero's and the odd cup of tea with skimmed milk. i know you're not supposed to, but it's the only chance i have to stick to it. Water will be very hard too, I will really have to push myself to do it

    Well done on day 1! You will do it this time I can feel it :-)

    Naughty on the water intake though, you really should try - fill up bottles then put them in the fridge - it's always nicer cold and you know exactly how much you've been drinking - I deffo notice a smaller loss when I've not been drinking enough so get it down ya! :-)

    Well done on day 1!!!! These first few days are the hardest but so worth it once you get on those scales. I'm with you on needing to drink more today, I always fill some bottles and put them in the fridge the night before, much easier to drink ice cold. I'm normally ok with my water intake but been out and about so keep forgetting. Have you done vlcd before? Wishing you an easy day 2!! Keep going xxx
