i originally joined this site in 2008 when I was doing lipotrim. I weighed 25.13st st the time. I have tried every single diet known to man - SW, WW, Rosemary Conley, all about w8, Cambridge plan, lighter life, lipotrim, Atkins... You name it I've tried it. And I've failed every single time.
well this time I'm going to succeed. I recently came back from holiday. I love holidays, however, there's a lot of things about holidays that makes me miserable... Having to pack massive clothes, case always being overweight, squashing in the seat on the plane then having the embarrassment of having to ask for a seatbelt extension, sweating, being terrified that the subbed won't hold my weight, feeling like everyone is watching me in the all inclusive restaurant.... Need I go on?! But this time one more thing got to me. One night there was karaoke on, now I can't sing to save my life but the entertainment guy asked me to get up and sing with him. Of course I said no, but it suddenly clicked that I wasn't saying no cos I couldn't sing or that I would make a fool out of myself... I was saying no because I couldn't stand anyone looking and saying look at that fat cow on stage, she's massive. It was at that point that I decided I had to make this work.
i came back off holiday on fri 24th cot and on sat 25th oct I made a start. I didn't want to wait until Monday because, well why?!
I weighed myself on the sat morning - 23.8st. Not as bad as 25.13st but still unbelievably wrong.
ive since been following the slimming world diet at home. I can't bring myself to go to a class but I seem to be able to find everything I need online. I have so far lost 12lb in 3 weeks. I'm very proud of myself. My 1st target is to be under 22 stone by Christmas. Then I want to be under 20 stone by end of March. I go on holiday in June next year and I'm hoping to see a huge difference.
Also, my friend gets married next year and is having her hen party in July. Part of it is quad biking which at the moment I am too heavy to do. I'm hoping to have lost enough weight to do this with ease.
having read the diaries on here, I love the motivation that is given and the stories shared.
i will try to update this diary each day if I can.
wish me luck
