Day 15...22lb lost so far!!!
Well I was previously a WeMITTer some 4 1/2 years ago. All the way back then I lost 5 stone on Cambridge Diet, however I needed to lose about 12 stone. However 3 months in to my journey, my world fell apart with my mum being diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. The next few years were a bit messy, mum died Sept 2010, and it took a good couple of years after her death for me to be back in a position to finally do something about my weight. Needless to stay I have regained every ounce I lost plus a good stone more.
Anyway, so here I am again...
Currently weighing in about 25 stone. Most I have ever weighed Want to get 11 or 12 stone off eventually. But right now I would be happy just to get a few stone off and keep it off!!!!
I am off on holiday with my 5 year old and our friends in August. My friend Suze is a size 6/8 and I am currently a size 24/26. I do NOT want to be sitting anywhere near her in a swimsuit at this kind of size!!!! I will never be a size 8. I doubt I will ever get as low as a size 12, but I am going to give it a good try!!!! I NEED to be significantly smaller than I am right now. I also do not want to have to have an extension to my seat belt on the plane
CD worked for me before, but the fact I can't SS on it with such a high BMI anymore, I am going down the Slim and Save route. Sample pack just arrived...eeek! I know that TFR works for me. Yes I have regained all the weight I lost before, but it took me 2 years to regain all that weight, and I ate dreadfully through that whole period!!!! I kept most of the weight off for the first year with very little effort.
So that's it really. If I can get through the first week, I will be ok...

Welcome back, sorry you had such a hard time and I am so sorry for your loss. I think for many of us the mental health aspect plays a part in it too. Good luck with your diet because of the type of cancer I have there is lots of diets I am not allowed to do Cambridge being one so I totally get all about finding what is right for you. First few weeks is hard as your body mentally and physically adjusts but you have made the choice to do it and that is never easy. So just keep at it and let those little losses add up. I found the first weigh in really hard as I knew I was really big but had been too scared to get on the scales so getting through that and committing to losing is never easy. So good luck and hopefully you can get into a good place for your journey.
Thanks. I am in a much better place than I have been, which is why I feel ready to do this!
Welcome back! very sorry to hear of your loss.
Here's hoping 2013 is a better year for all of us x

No matter what is influencing me, it is still my hand
that puts the food into my mouth
Well. it's day 6 - already!!!! Happy Happy Caz. Keeping myself busy and topped up with water. Writing my blog, playing wii with my daughter, off to my dads later for coffee, which will be fine as he is very supportive of the diet I haven't weighed in at all yet - official weigh in is on Monday.
Looked back at my blog from last time, and discovered that last time I lost 36lb in the first 30 days!!!! And I know I wasn't 100% later in that month. Hoping I can replicate or even better that success this time (and more to the point, stick it out for much longer!
Day 7 and all is fab!!! Feel the best today that I have in what feels like ages!!! Been for a mice walk and now at soft play. Then a wall to town then back home. Total distance, 2 miles or there abouts!
