    6 Months 'till the not-so-big day!

    Hi everyone, Im Kayleigh, I'm 25 and a nurse from Leeds I started Lighter Life today (group was last night) and am starting a diary to keep me focused (I hope haha)

    This is my THIRD time on the diet, first time I didn't get to two weeks, and the second I think I managed one week. I just felt sorry for myself, allowed myself to wallow and failed because of it. Well this time, it's different, I has to be. I'm not gonna focus on the diet all the time, instead I'm gonna focus on everything else around me, this is just a thing I am doing alongside my life, not MY life!

    Current weight is 129.2kg's, weigh in is on a monday and I have 6 months until I walk down the aisle and want 6 stone off, atleast! Wish me luck. Any advice and help would be so much appreciated! Day one hasn't been too bad, flirted between feeling positive and on control to 'oh god, what have I let myself in for' but I was miserable fat, so ot can't continue.

    Been to the gym tonight, took it easy, 20mons on the bike and 10 on the treadmill, nothing heavy, will continue light gym routine infill I get past the first couple of weeks!

    Nice to meet you all

    Ah that tiredness, terrible I was actually falling asleep at my desk on the 2nd day! It does pass though, it kinda helps cos you just want to go to bed early so no chance of snacking..

    I would describe as more weakness really. I'm drinking one of those broth things now, they're not bad really!

    Second day of lighter life. Not too bad, feeling hunger more, kind sicky/empty feeling and flitting thoughts of 'oh god what have I let myself in for", "I've set myself up for failure because I've failed every other time" and "I really really feel determined", infant, it's not even determination I feel it's just it, it's just no choice, which I've felt like before when I did we'll on Slimming World. Then of course, all the feeling of, we'll I should just do a normal diet but that quickly follows by "but that DOES NOT work for you Kayleigh, you don't stick to it, choice is too difficult etc... And it's not an option.

    Work was slightly stressful today, just a few things up in the air and some greyish areas that are clogging up my judgement and I need to work through. Automatically, a day like that would mean I would come home and eat something nice to appease myself, we'll I haven't got that at the minute, so that's hard. To the point that I worry my stress levels will increase and therefore anxiety kick in because I'm not comforting eating. I know comforting eating doesn't make it better but was masking it, which I know isn't good but means I have to DEAL with it now, which I'm a bit nervous about.

    I've definitely been irritable, but I'll pull through, it's not forever, I feel I little writing this but that's , it's an emotion that's fine to feel. In bed now, got work tomorrow and **** loads to get through and vets with Mila tomorrow night, so I'm off to sleep, plus, it's ludicrously cold. Lets see what day 3 brings.

    hey feeling cold on this diet is normal- especially when it it -5 outside !!! One thing I will say from experience is that if you can get through the first week it does get easier. Also you need to have yur head in the right place - else you will find that you keep restarting the first few days again and again... Stick with it and you will get support from everyone on here x

    Thanks Curvy, day three has been better during the day, tonight was a little struggle so I took myself off to the bath for 2 hours and sang along to karaoke songs on youtube haha! I'm just not paying any attention to my mind really, we'll trying not to. If I do have flickering thoughts of nervousness for what else I'm gonna feel, but instead of finding myself internally arguing about should I shouldn't I, like last time, I just shut myself up and think, head down, once it's one your done, won't be long, which Is a big mind shift from the last time I was on it.

    I guess I'm really lucky as well, my really close friend and colleague at work has been song it for 3 months and lost nearly 4 stone and she really supports me and I really support her, it helps that we're both psychiatric nurses too haha we CBT the chuff out of each other haha, our mantra is, practice what we preach, distraction, mindfulness and mind over mood!

    I just really can't wait for weigh in on Monday, i hope I lose loads and it spurs me on!

    It is so good to have someone to look to for inspiration, it makes it possible! My friend lost 6 stone but with Rosemary Connely and she is truely my inspiration too. Suddenly I became the fat friend lol but she is so supportive of me and wants me to be happy.

    Your nearly through the hardest bit, plain sailing from here.

    First week is by far the worst, stay strong!! I've also got about 5-6 months on this plan, day 18 so far, a bit annoyed as to how long it's going to take and how did it come to this, but oh well, such is life! We all make mistakes and the only way to learn is to try again.

    Would sticking a picture of a wedding dress help in the kitchen? It's a small practical reminder of what you are trying to aim for. May help those crooked thoughts, they do creep up on us all!

    I think in all honesty I wouldn't pay much attention to it. I have made a fat collage, and when I feel like I wanna eat, I try and look at inspirational quotes and stories, specially to do with lighter life. I'm struggling at the moment but about to have my last shake of the night, infant, I might have some porridge. I think I have felt down today because the weekend is ahead of me and usually that involves lots of food, social events including food etc... And this weekend it doesn't and The weekend after next and the weekend after next etc... But I just have to suck it up. That's the be all and end all.

    I just want to be thin, nothing else. Thin.

    Weekends can be a struggle to begin with, but I am actually enjoying getting up fresh and having full days to enjoy instead of having groggy head after too much wine!! There are benefits and pains to this plan, keep at it, it is definitely worth it!
