I hope you won't be insulted by me posting - I'm not in the same boat but saw no one else had replied yet and I just wanted to say I thought you are really brave. And obviously very committed to start before Christmas. I would never presume to tell someone what to do but are you sure about not seeing your family over Christmas? I'm sure they love you just as you.

Thank you xx
I'm not going out for xmas, me my husband and son will have a nice day at home. At least that way I won't be panicking for days worried about leaving the house.
I'm feeling a lot more positive today after a night of tossing and turning thinking about losing weight and looking at pics of big losses and reading people's stories.
I may be super over weight but that doesn't define me, at the moment though it's taken over my life and my 'me' is hidden away and I can't live like this anymore.
It's hard to admit my weight to strangers but I realise I have to be honest with myself about it. People will judge and I could list all the reasons why I am so fat but it means nothing in the long run. They aren't excuses but people will always just think I'm fat because I'm a slob or something. That certainly isn't true but what matters now is moving forward and taking it one meal at a time.
I hope people can support me here, I lost 50lb 2 years ago with the support on here.
Hi Lou, it's nice to see you back! I was wondering how you were doing. I'm sorry you're having a bad time - I know first hand what depression is like, and I hope you're getting plenty of support. I'm just emerging from what has been one of the lowest points of my life, following knee replacement surgery, and the lovely ladies on here have really helped me through it. Keep on posting and letting us know how you're getting on - you absolutely can do this, you've proved that before! xx

Oh I'm pleased you have hubby and son, I was just worried about you being alone. Sometimes Christmases with your very immediate family are the best :-)

Being mean about size seems to be one of the last things that's "acceptable" in society. Too thin, too fat - seems to be ok to say it. I think it's awful. You never know what's going on to drive that eating behaviour.
What diet plan do you follow? X
just wanted to say good luck with your goals hun. i am slowly loosing the weight and it effect how much i go out and see people but as i have almost lost a stone in 3 weeks its motivating me to do more and tell people about my weightloss to keep me on track. yesterday i fitted into a new pair of jeans which gave me more motivation. WE can do this hun I would like to looses 2 more lbs by Christmas day taking me to 23.7. have a lovely Christmas day with your hubby and son. I have a son too hes almost 3 take care. xxxx
Before I give any suggestions, may I ask what your plans are for Xmas and new year? Will you be eating lots? (You totally can and should, it's what Xmas is designed for hehe).
The only reason I ask is because I would suggest by starting to detox your cupboards. Get rid of every naughty food you have. Out of sight, out of mind.
If you cut out junk for 1 week I bet you'll lose 10lbs in your first week.
I am on holiday until 4th January, but I am
More that to help you and buddy you once I'm back. I started out needing to lose over 10 stones and I'm nearly at my half way point. So I understand how you feel.
Please don't be sad anymore. You're in the right place x
I was hungry by tea time so a big plate of quorn chilli and brown rice was devoured in no time!!
The nights are harder for me as I usually snack after tea but in the past I've had amazing losses by not eating after 7pm. So as its now 7:19 I'm not eating anything else!!
So, day one has been a success I'm very proud of myself
^^well done hun your tea sounds nice I love quorn mince. I TRY not to eat in the eves too, Just my chunky kit kat on a sun night as my treat. xxx
I love seeing his face when he's surprised and I've missed it the last couple of years. When we broke the news about santa to him before he started secondary school he started crying and hugged me and said he was so grateful that i'd got him most things he'd asked for over the years. He said he only ever asked santa for them as he knew they were too expensive for me to buy! That was a nice moment

Haven't felt this positive in such a long time.
