    So! Here we go again!!!

    Hiya all *waves*

    I'm not a newbie to the site, was on here a year or so ago (LMP) but I rejoined again.

    So, the story so far lol, I lost 8 stone about 3-4 years ago doing Lipotrim and exante. Long and short of it is, I gained 2 stone. Then got pregnant ? and here I am almost back to my starting weight. Baby's now 14 months and it's time I got myself sorted out.

    I've hit rock bottom again, even been looking at WLS abroad, my Dr won't agree to a gastric bypass so I'd have to fund it myself. Apparently they don't do it on the nhs in Fife
    I'm 100% sure it's a bypass I need. I just can't bring myself to get into 6k worth or debt for it just yet so thought oh sod it. I'll give exante one last try.
    I got my box of shakes yesterday and I'm gonna start on Monday. I'll go and get weighed at boots on Monday morning and take it from there. Really need to just get on with it. I feel disgusting and it's really beginning to play havoc with my moods.

    I'm only gonna post here tho or in 100% section. I canny have good thoughts or that atm.
    And please, no pussy footing around me. Tough love and honestly is what I need. Oh and a wee bit of bum whipping occasionally lol

    Looking forward to getting to "know" you all

    Clair xx

    Hi Clair! Welcome back, I'm sorry to hear that you've gained and are feeling unhappy with yourself but well done on returning to try again before making the big leap to surgery.
    I'm sure you'll at least be able to lose a decent amount that will help you reassess how you feel about a surgery.
    I need tough love too a lot of the time, I can reason my way off the diet all the time and then complain how someone should have stopped me. I have to stop myself! It's no one else's fault.
    Anyways! Haha I look forward to seeing your progress and hope you stay posting - good and bad! You can do it, just remember how good it is to see that big loss in the first week!

    Hi Clair.. You can do it.. This diet is tough as you know but its not as tough as being unhappy with yourself all the time.. You probably know that when your unhappy with your weight your either thinking about it all the time or blaming everything in your life on it. I have spent twenty years either hating myself, berating myself, planning what diet to do next ( normally to start on Monday ) and then failing again. This diet all be it hard has freed me from the internal endless voice. I dont know how old you are and am not going to ask but I can see by your post that you have a young child. Dont be like me and waste twenty years. X
    10th November Restart AGAIN
    Goal 1 ~ Get into Ketosis ~ DONE.
    Goal 2 ~ Get to first weigh in without giving up ~ DONE ~ -11lb
    Goal 3 ~ Get into the 13's

    Yeh, week one loss should be a decent one. I've spent the last few days eating every bleeding thing in sight lol
    I never try blame anyone when I mess up. My problem is when people say "oh it's ok. Start again the morra" I just need a kick up the behind and told straight lol

    Dreading weigh in.... But it's gotta be done eh?!
    Your right about the surgery too. Funny thing is when I lost the 8 stone before I'd hit rock bottom and was looking into banding, had the appointment for assessment booked then I heard about Lipotrim so thought I'll give it a try. First time in my life is ever managed to lose more then 7lbs haha. So I'm hoping that it'll be the same this time. Just gotta make sure I don't get pregnant afterwards again pmsl.

    How long you been on it? xx

    Hiya SuperNova.
    Yep, it's a vicious circle eh, eat get fed up eat coz your fed up get fed up coz you've ate blah blah boring hehe.
    I'm 31, and I can remember being fed up with being overweight since I was about 13 so I'm not too far behind you haha.
    That's why I'm on the edge of booking surgery. Kinda feels like that's the answer. I know for sure if I manage to lose this time and regain then that's my only option.
    I don't want Olivia growing up and seeing constant dieting and misery.

    Can only try my best eh?!

    How long have you been on it? xx

    Better to know now what you weigh then shy away from it lol. Life can get in the way majorly, but not going to have much of a life if don't shift the weight is my motto.

    I've been on Exante for 46 days now, not all 100%. I've set myself a 100 day challenge initially. Where I hope to lose 3st total, then decide how much longer I want/need to get to a comfortable weight.

    I did Exante a few months ago before my wedding but only started 5 weeks before the big day. So going for the finale this time round. Have broken it into smaller goals though instead and it makes it easier for me to cope with.

    19 stone exactly. OMG ?
    I knew it was gonna be bad but it's still made me mad at myself.
    But on a positive, it's still a stone lighter than my heaviest
    The only way is down now right?

    So I've made it to the afternoon already had 2 litres of water not feeling too bad at all. Hopefully this will last, don't remember having this feeling of determination in a long time.

    My goal is to get to 14 stone, that's my comfy weight, still classed as Over weight but to hell with it!!

    Baby's sleeping so I'll quickly get the house tidied up for the 3rd time today. I honestly don't know how I'm not skinny already. Oh wait I do..... Galaxy and coke ??

    Good that you managed to get on the scales & face up to reality Clair. As you say its all downwards from here.

    Keep posting regularly so that you can stay accountable to your self.

    Good luck this week, you will see a nice big loss once week one is under your belt.

    How often are you planning to weigh in ? x

    Why do we do that? Have a start date and binge on rubbish and make it harder for ourselves lol.
    I'm hoping for a good loss but sometimes my useless body only gives me 6lb or so!! I know that's still good but when you see the bigger people's normal losses (14lb+) you canny help being a wee bit envious hehe

    How you doing? x

    Hiya susie.
    Yeh it had to be done. Was in boots ages waiting for it to get a bit quieter before I hoped on just invade anyone caught a look lol
    Not sure how often I'm gonna weigh in yet, if I don't weigh there's a chance I'll think sod it and cheat but then if I do weigh and it's not what I expect (like 5 stone off every week haha) then the same. So I'll see how I'm feeling Monday.
    Probably best to weigh and see the first loss tho, maybe spur me on a bit. Then decide how often.

    How about you? The scales drive me insane xx

    Hi,

    well done for taking the leap and trying again, definately a good idea to try exante again as surgery sounds a little scary. Your story sounds similar to mine and probably a lot of others on here I suppose, but that's a good thing, having others who understand how your feeling. That first weigh in has got to be the worst but think how great it'll be next week and if you've done it before I bet you'll get back into the swing of it in no time. I've fallen off the wagon recently and now back on track and seeing the scales going down is better than all those things I like to eat.
    Weigh in wise I guess you've got to do what works for you, I have to control myself or I'd be weighing myself everyday

    hows the the rest of your day been?
