    'Diets are for losers' my weight loss journey

    I will begin by introducing myself. I'm 28 years-old and mummy to five young children including twins, (7), (5), (3), (2), (2). As you can imagine having five children in four years took it's toll on my body :-(

    As a teen I've never had a healthy relationship with food. As long as I can remember I have always been 'fat' and my younger sister has always been built like a string bean. Reality is I was never fat and I was never over weight! I was sporty, fit and healthy but i could never see it.

    When I started my weigh loss journey on March 2014 my post babies weigh in was 13st 13lbs. Now at that weight I was in size 14 trousers, 12 tops I have always weighed heavy. Lightest ever before children weighing in at 10st 6lb but was in size 8/10 comfortably.

    My journey began on the natural ketosis diet which was worth every single penny weight just fell off and if was so easy, real food, set portion sizes etc.

    On June 9th I began another, different diet journey, cambridge diet. That final push to get to my ultimate all time target of 10st. As much as natural ketosis was amazing I've began to get complacent and need that new look on things etc everything stripping back to basics.

    For me just 'healthy' eating doesn't work to lose only to maintain. My unhealthy relationship with food has involved anorexia and bulimia, left to my own competitive self I can feel myself slipping down the route I vow never to completely return. I need structure and the strictness.

    I've dusted the bike down and as you can imagine running after the children is so much exercise in itself. Once at 10st I will be joining our local 'fight fit' exercise classes......anyways ......welcome to my journey.

    well done!! how much do you have left to lose now following that 7lb weight loss ? I'd love to lose that in a week! :-)
    Summer 2013 - 12st
    March 2014 - 11st5lbs
    03/06 -
    10st6lbs (146 Pounds)
    June Weight loss - (3 Pounds) - but birthday and operation with 2 week recovery
    July Weight loss - (5 Pounds)
    August Weight loss - (5 Pounds)
    September Weight loss - (5 Pounds)
    ***********************************
    October 1st - New start point for Autumn weight loss challenge following 2 week holiday. Gained a pound on Oct 1st so amended september weight loss down to 5lbs from 6lbs. Still lost 18lbs overall since beginning of June :-)
    01/10 - 9st2lbs
    08/10 - 9st2lbs - STS - FFS!! Really worked hard. Annoying.
    16/10 - 9st4lbs - I'm not in denial - I genuinely don't get it!! All I can do is keep working hard and not have such a big blow out on Saturday
    24/10 -
    30/10 - Mini target of 8stone 9 - that would be an 7lb weight loss for October. My biggest in a month so far - but doable as week 1 I should have a good loss and not too many social plans this month.
    06/11 -
    13/11 -
    20/11 -
    27/11 - 2nd Mini target of 8stone 4 - that would leave only 4lbs for December
    04/12 -
    11/12 -
    18/12 -
    23/12 - 5 day weigh in and target of goal weight - 8stone 0lbs. GO ON CAT!!!!!!

    My personal goal is to get to pre baby weight (I was an 8/10) so I have 13lb to go :-/. But I'm planning on doing this first stage SS for the full 12 weeks even if I reach target before see how light I can indeed go lol x
