This is going to be my year!
I am new to S&S but not new to VLCD's or dieting as a whole. Over the past three years I seem to have become a serial dieter without even realising. I started dieting aged 19 at 15st 13. My biggest success was on Cambridge where slowly but surely I got down to 12 and a half stone. I gave up Cambridge eventually as my head wasn't in it anymore and tried various diets including WW, SW and JUDDD. All of them I lost a couple of pounds on but lost interest after a month or so... With every diet I'm so raring to go at the start then I lose motivation rapidly. I really need to find a way round this!
So now here I am, aged 22, 14st 4.5lb as of this morning, with a wardrobe full of beautiful dresses all in a size 14 which are all too small for me :( I am determined to lose this weight once and for all. I don't want another year of no holidays and dreading summer because of my size. I don't go out much because I feel so huge, and I just want to be like any other normal 22 year old!!!
I ordered my first S&S packs this week, and was going to start on Monday but I'm considering starting tomorrow because I am just ready to get going now. Ordered some shakes, bars and food packs (quite excited to try these as never had anything like this on Cambridge).
My brother is getting married on 8th Feb, so my first goal is to lose a stone for the wedding. I have a gorgeous dress I've bought which fits but is a bit snug so will look good if I'm a bit lighter. Then my next goal is 12.7 which is the smallest I got to on Cambridge. I still felt massive at this size, but looking back on pictures from then I don't look bad at all. Then my next goal will be 11 stone (I've never been lower than a size 14 in my adult life so no idea how I will look at this weight?!) and then final goal is 10 stone.
Goal 1 - lose 1 stone by 8th February
Goal 2 - get to 12.7 stones
Goal 3 - get to 11 stones
Final goal - get to 10 stone :D
Breaking it down like this doesn't seem too daunting!
Wish me luck :)
