    Nefertari's Final Fat Fighting Chance

    Hi everyone! It's good to be back on Minis!

    I'm a professional dieter - I've tried everything! I've never had good results because I can't stick to any plan. The only one I had any success with was a VLCD.

    A few years ago, I managed to lose 7st in 6 months but, guess what, I gained it all back in half that time. I let the success go to my head and I thought that because I was slim, I could start eating 'normally' again.

    Many curries and chocolates later and (and a lot of yo-yo dieting in between) and I'm back to have one final push at fighting the fat. I'm 30 in November and recently married. I'm going to be thinking about having children in the next couple of years. I don't want to be a fat, sweaty, out of breath mother! I also want to enjoy having a slimmer body for a couple of years before I experience pregnancy and it goes all funhouse mirror on me!

    Lately, I've been so close to saying "I'm fat. I'm always going to be fat. I might as well stop worrying about my weight." I don't want to give in like that! I am a young woman with many years ahead of me and I can win my weight battle right now if I focus on my goals.

    I'm 5 days in to Slim and Save and I've lost 12lbs so far. I really feel like I can do it this time!

    I hope you lovely people will be there to help me stay on track and reach my goal xxx

    Subscribed! Loving the new diary and the new you! With you every step of the way, you know that, because I know you will do this. Was there last time and I know what you can do when you put your mind to it. Remember loving the monthly photos and seeing you shrink before the camera. Remember them. You must do them again, they were such a brilliant visual incentive. I too will do this final push. I got so close before, and tired of being borderline OK when I would be much happier nearer to my goal, so here goes!

    You can do this! I'm like you and many others on here that struggle to keep it off- I'm 50 and luckily was always slim until my 40s although I was always on a diet and felt fat even tho i wasn't - then it went a bit crazy or else from all that dieting I'm not sure - anyway I've been going up and down 3 stone for last few years - time to get it off and keep it off!

    Hi! Yep I also gained my VLCD weight loss back, but am on day 7 of being back on track.... It's easy to think it's ok I can eat more now I'm thin! And I too had the convo with myself that maybe my body is just bigger and that's how I am. Bug that was denial talking. So unhappy at this weight (I don't actually know my weight as don't wanna weigh but I know it's loads!)
    I also had words from an uncle yesterday about how much weight I've gained which shocked me as I convinced myself i was covering it up!
    Anyways good luck and well done so far I will be keeping an eye x

    Yep definitely will take a look at that oct challenge. That's an awesome weight loss! What a motivation to keep going well done :-)

    I'm not going to weigh myself until Halloween!! Hoping to be 10stone or less by then.. So if oct challenge is weight based I may not be able to play!

    This place is so familiar, it's like coming home. Maybe we should buddy up with the others who come on here to promise to contact via email if we disappear. Thanks for saying hi, didn't get the pm, but the Minimins auto reply told me my inbox was full. When I don't feel fat I stray. When I realise I've hit my limit I come back here. I do like it here, I've done the run up to Christmas several times, but only truly successfully the first time. Did manage 3 stone 2 years ago which isn't to be sniffed at. Can't quite get my head around a proper vlcd at the mo, but expect I will if I come on here enough

    Also did S&S in 2012 and went from 16.9 to 13.10 in 13 weeks, then came off it maintained for 6 months then it crept back on. Got pregnant, lost the baby, put on weight.

    Now determined to get back to a healthy weight. Will attempt a low carb/S&s mix
