    LovelyLyds82 Weight Loss Journey............Xx

    Hi everyone I'm Lydia, im 32 and have a lot of weight to lose. I am scared and equally excited to start my journey on Saturday 1st November 2014. I will be blogging my thoughts and feelings to encourage myself and hopefully others too. My start weight is 23st 7 lbs and my goal weight is 13st. I would like to drop from a size 26 to a curvy 14. I have the support of my husband and our son. It may be a little silly starting this diet in Nov but I just need to start, it makes sense!!!

    I am starting cambridge diet SS and will stay on SS until I reach my goal. In total I have 6 dress sizes to get rid of and 10 1/2 stones to say goodbye to.

    My weight and size are affecting my health and family life and also my work. I am so looking forward to seeing my size, health and aspects of my life change.

    I will be back on Saturday my start date

    welldone to everyone who is winning their internal fight, I'm looking forward to joining you

    Much love and admiration
    Lyds Xx

    Hi lyds

    Welcome welcome :-)

    I'd say you sound pretty serious - you're starting on Saturday for a start! None of this wait till Monday nonsense! Well it was nonsense when I did it because I was constantly on this thought process of being "on and off" a diet. Now if I have an unhealthy day or an unhealthy breakfast or something I try and just see it as part of life but back to being healthy again afterwards. I don't even write off the day anymore :-)

    I wish you lots of success - some lovely folks on this forum.

    My lovely friend Moo started at 24st and is now down to 18 - she is doing amazingly! Her user name is Destamia.

    Also - there is a section called WEMITTS which is for folks with quite a lot to lose. I think regardless of size losing weight is a battle for everyone and takes determination and bloody hard work, but there are obviously some things that someone at my size is not going to be able to understand compared to someone starting in the 20stones etc. I've had a look through their diaries before and they are incredibly supportive. Definitely worth checking that section out too.

    What's involved in Cambridge ?

    Hi Cat,

    thanks so so much for your message!

    You are so right, I have always been a person to say I will start on Monday, the 1st, new year, lol I even said I will start next full moon and next clocks changing! Wow that is so embarrassing to write. I think the truth is I always wanted to mark the end of breaking a habit with something symbolic. Mark the end of a chapter. I do still feel like this but I can't put off starting anymore. There is always a reason to delay fighting the battles within and I want to stop the excuses etc. I suppose really I just need to grow up! Stop the self destructing thoughts and behaviour.

    You Sound like you are winning your personal battles, which must make you feel motivated and strong. I look forward to reading your updates

    thanks again for your message

    I bought myself a wish bracelet and I have it on now. Legend has it that you make a wish as you place on your wrist and when it wears through, your wish may come true. I wished to be the person I am meant to be, I wished to be the real Lyds, the Lyds without the self destruct button. I wonder when the bracelet will wear through. It was only a pound off ebay if you lovelies fancy giving it a go. It encourages me when I look at it. When ever I do something I now ask myself " will doing this get you to who you want to be or will it take you further away"

    MENTIONING FOOD........
    tomorrow is the last day of this Lydia. I have chosen to have my mums beef casserole as my last meal, it is my favourite food in the whole world. Not overly unhealthy and full of vegetables.

    I am strangly looking forward to drinking plenty of water as I know the more you drink the quicker you shrink, also it is good for my skin, bowel movements etc. I am aiming for 6 litres a day 2 morning, 2 afternoon, and 2 evening. I already drink a lot so this should be doable with a little effort, I'm hoping it will help with saggy skin too.

    My husband, Tim came home from work at 5pm, I showed him my new top and said its like a bloody tent. Bless him, his reply was " well I love you and I'd like to spend some time under the tent with you! " lol he is such a keeper. How on earth can he have a 23 1/2 St wife and be so kind? He is so supportive he really is. We were just in the kitchen chatting and I mentioned that I really don't think I should come off plan for Christmas. He suggested we just stay at home and apart from our sons gifts we should just treat it like another day and cook food I don't like, Ie fish or chicken. I don't think I should come off plan at all until goal around next April. It's going to be tough but I'd feel amazing if I did it and New Years resolution would be to keep going, not start. Oh I have so much on my mind!!! Xx

    OMG - 6litres is quite a lot ?! I drink about 3.5 a day but need an extra litre as I work out. But guess it can't do any harm ? Unless it dilutes salts etc ? I really have no idea though!

He is so supportive he really is. We were just in the kitchen chatting and I mentioned that I really don't think I should come off plan for Christmas. He suggested we just stay at home and apart from our sons gifts we should just treat it like another day and cook food I don't like, Ie fish or chicken. I don't think I should come off plan at all until goal around next April. It's going to be tough but I'd feel amazing if I did it and New Years resolution would be to keep going, not start. Oh I have so much on my mind!!! Xx

    THat would be an unbelievable achievement! I 've given Christmas some thought too. I think I'm going to eat whatever - but ONLY on Christmas day and Boxing day and STOP when I'm actually full!! Big challenge. Roast dinners are my absolute fave!!

    Hello Lydia,
    sneaking around and as a result I found your diary. Welcome to minimins and good luck on your journey. You seem to have everything for good start, desire and supportive husband. Not all of us the support we need on this long journey.
    I do not know what
    cambridge diet is and how it works but 6 l of water is huge amount. Im not the doctor but Im pretty sure I have read that too much water is not so good for you actually.
    This is just one article I found in internet for you
    http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/strange-but-true-drinking-too-much-water-can-kill/
    As I said I dont know what the diet is I still wish you to lose weight healthy way. =)
    Good luck and I will be reading how you doing =)

    Thank you very much for your messages and concern, what a lovely supportive place I have come to. Yes 6 litres does sound a lot doesn't it! I will give it a go and if I feel it's not working I will reduce to 4.

    Cambridge diet is is a very low calorie diet where you consume only cambridge food packs ( there are other levels to the weight loss plan where you do eat conventional food ) to help you maintain your weight loss you move up through the steps, slowly introducing food groups.

    The food on the plan is very nice. There are bars, shakes and soups to choose from. I do not drink tea or coffee so giving up those won't be a problem but I do like a glass of wine or two so Im hoping a glass of fizzy water will help, lol who am I kidding!

    I have removed all wine glasses from the house and will try to only buy food I don't like for the boys. I will cook them fish, chicken etc and pasta dishes they like but I don't. I will buy cheese and onion crisps and chocolate as they are not tempting to me.

    We are not an overly sociable little family, we are all very outgoing but seem to just prefer to be with each other in our little home with our dog. Having to watch the pennies, not a big extended family, and my weight probably contribute to this also. Well the other day I had 6 invites in one day but I have said no to all but one of them. You see I know they will all involve food and as I will be in the delicate first few days and getting into ketosis I feel I just need to hibernate. I told myself oh just go and start the diet another day but I've had to be sensible, especially as one of the invites was to a chocolate party!!!
    When I am in a stronger place and can get glammed up I will make an effort to go out more with myself and as a family. Summer pub lunches sound good lol

    i had a dream last night that I was going out and I really enjoyed getting ready. It was lovely feeling good about myself. I can't wait for this to be a reality. I also had a cold in my dream which I'm hoping isnt a sign haha

    Tonight we are going to my Mums house. I am not mentioning starting the diet to her on Saturday as she hates it when I diet (we will save the whys on that for another day)
    my husband Tim also has 9 days off work starting from 2pm today so he has said if I need to I can have a few duvet days to help me through. I am not addicted to food or eating in its worst form, I don't binge eat or make myself sick, I don't take laxatives etc but I make wrong food choices and I eat big portions. I get full quite quickly but it doesn't take long for me to eat again. I think it's a habit and a comfort and something I do when I am bored or at home a lot. I know I don't have a true addiction but I feel with this diet there is going to be some withdrawal and cold turkey and if I could sleep through some of this I know it can only help

    wow I have had a lot to say this morning!

    Chat soon
    thanks for being there
