    I'm coming back!

    Hi everyone

    I have ordered my boxes and am starting all over again on the 2nd of January.

    I had great success with the Cambridge diet a few years ago but have regained the 7 stone I lost. I do believe this is due to be stopping a stone from my goal weight though so I plan not to make the same mistake again.

    I took up with exante last year and loved it but fell pregnant and poorly (wasn't able to continue with pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy) so had to stop.

    I am super excited (going off food big time and feeling rough!) and can't wait! I am hoping to get nice and healthy to be able to start thinking about starting a family.

    PS It will really help if you drastically reduce carbohydrates and alcohol on the first of January. It makes the move to ketosis a little more bearable.
    Don't forget to drink lots of water too. It cures most things.

    Hi Everyone,

    Thanks for your kind words.

    As I had a big meal with my family for new years I didn't manage to reduce my carbs. I started before on Boxing day so it would appear I am not very good at that!

    So far I am doing / feeling ok. I have had a couple of hot drink mixes to get me through. With the most silly little bit in though but it makes me feel better.

    On the run up to this I was actually excited and feeling I was sick of food and couldn't wait. Naturally now the day is here the thoughts of "oh why don't you just do healthy eating, it'll take 3 times as long but its nicer" "Oh why don't you have a meal in the evening". Only natural I suppose.

    In the big picture its such a small amount of time to "suffer" to get the good stuff. If I am not at goal by summer I am going to be so cross with myself I think!

    x x x
    This is about my 3rd time round. I have done CD, exante, WW, SW....... Lost and gained the same 7st twice.

    Its back with a vengeance! Everything I hyped myself up about last week is slipping away......!

    I am being very positive and trying to block it all out!

    I have been thinking about waiting a whole month to weigh myself but now I am guessing I will need to see the scales moving to help me through!

    I'm the same, I keep thinking about healthy eating, in fact that is what I am doing now as I am not starting exante till next Sunday, however the healthy eating allows the option of 'just one' and this is where I fall down, I lost 3 1/2 stone with CD and stopped thinking I can manage it myself :0( and now here I am back to where I was, still messing around with WW or SW or whatever and I know I will never lose the weight on those diets. They just don't work for me!! I have to take the food out of the picture completely!!
    you can do it, good luck x x x

    So far so good. I have even managed to pop out for a drink with friends and have soda water!

    I arranged to meet for dinner on Saturday, I chose the harvester to give myself a fighting chance. I chose the chicken but asked for no chips and some green beans instead of peas. She completely ignored me and I didn't want to make a fuss so I donated my chips and got myself some lettuce from the salad bar. I even watched my friend eat her dessert. I honestly felt ok, empowered if anything
