I'm coming here in search of a lifestyle change that will get me to my goal wedding weight - I'm getting married to my best friend and love of my life on 29th July this year and I want to lose at least 3st 5lbs by that time.
I've been on VLCDs and TFR diets in the past and I'm sick of the roller-coaster ride that they put me on. I've realised that avoiding food is not the answer and I need to change my attitude towards food. I started off in January 2013 at 21st 4lbs and lost 5st on VLCDs/TFR diets. I'm now 17st 12lbs and want to be 14st 7lbs on my wedding day, my lowest ever adult weight. I did a VLCD a few years ago and lost 7st to get to 14st 11lbs but gained it all back. I'm aiming to beat that and keep it off!
I've 'tried' SW before - I say 'tried' because I never gave it a proper shot. I 'tried' it back when it was green and red days, and I've 'tried' EE but I really didn't bother following it properly. Needless to say, I didn't see any results and never last a full week. This time, I'm determined to give it a proper shot. I'm running out of time and I'm sick of failing!
Anyway, wish me luck - I'll be doing SW at home as I work shifts so can't make a group. By the way, I have noticed that whenever I start a thread on here, it dies a death and I end up talking to myself so please don't be strangers - do pop in to say hello!
