welcome back and well done for re-starting. there are many of us here that are starting/in the middle of yet another weight loss journey... but this time it will be the last time... for us all! right?? xx
Re-starting a VLCD is always tougher - because the first time, the novelty of something 'new' is what carries us through the first few weeks. On the second/third time around this routine is no longer new and feels more punishing.
I'm re-starting PROPERLY this time, I lost a lot of weight back in 2008 - regained a large chunk due to various stresses and had been re-starting the VLCD for a couple of years unsuccessfully. My head wasn't in the right place.
I'm back this year - started on 1st Jan 2013 with a vengeance - I'm feeling positive and calm and confident that I will finish - which isn't something I've felt for a very, very long time.
SO success is down to you and I wish you all the strength and willpower in the world.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. ~Santayana.2013 Re-Start! - 1/1/2013 - 15st 8

welcome back and good luck with your second go on the S&S diet, sometimes life can get tough and get in the way of diets etc and so good on you for coming back and trying again, that in itself to me shows a real determination to make big changes, you can do it!. Em x
A year after I last started, I'm starting again
I've done lighter life a few years ago. Lost 5 stone. Managed to maintain for good few years and from last June I've managed to put on 3 stone!
Restarting feels scary but I'm ready. I've been toying with that idea for a while and I now think the right time has come.
The way I see it is we should see restarting as a blessing. We know what to expect and what to avoid. We are also (hopefully) equipped with the knowledge that we didn't have the first time round.
I know what went wrong last time and I kinda know why I put the weight back on.
Now it's just a question of investigating it further and learning a little bit more about ourselves.
Good luck to everyone!
