Take care Hun and thanks for your post x x I will catch up with all your posts and diaries tonight x x
Hi just a quick update as I am having a lunch break whilst working from home today! It's day 31 for me today! Oh my god I cant believe that is a whole month done already! To re-cap I came back to CD as I had put on 23lb of the 7 stone I lost since Oct 11. I had lost 3.5 stone with SW and 3.5 stone with CD from Jan to beginning of May last year. I am so pleased having started back on CD on 2nd Jan to be here today and have lost 20lb of that weight in my first month! I have re looked at my goal as which was 12 stone last year and have changed this to 11stone as I think that I really did not address the issues why I put on weight and need to look at these! Also the new goal will get me comfortable in a size 12 instead of in-between a 12/14. I want to be able to go into any shop and buy a 12!I have a doctors appointment today to see how my blood pressure is so this will be helpful! I have not been on medication since I lost the weight last year and they have called me in for a check up! I am going to speak to the doctor today to see if I can be referred to see a counseller to address my issues with food and why I can lose weight but not maintain weight! I really need to get this addressed or I will be back on here every Jan!I would like to say in the month that I have been on here I have found your posts and comments on my diary to be so motivating and helpful THANKYOU to each and everyone who has commented! I hope that me commenting on each of your posts has helped also in some small way! I have found that reading others diaries and stories that this has been really helpful and its good to see that you are not alone in your battle against the demon weight loss journeys that I know I will be on the rest of my life unless I truely get this sorted!I have stepped up this week to SS+ which has been nice and I even went out for a small chicken and lettuce salad with my partner after my weigh in on Wed which was nice I felt part of the normal world! Even if I took a small pot of pickled red cabbage with me to add to my lettuce as the Harvest do not do this!As I mentioned earlier I have been really busy this week with work and feel that I have not read everyones posts or diaries and like to see how you are all doing, so I am going to make a big effort this weekend to catch up with you all!I hope that you have all had a good week this week? If you have not read some of the diaries and posts and this will motivate you to get back on track!Thanks again for all your continued support x x
Hello! That sounds really good as the weight falls off im getting a lot of anxiety about keeping it off and regular food in take again. Let me know how it goes with actually eating again as i think i might be tempted to indulge if i was to eat. How come youve got a new CDC?
I think putting more info on about going up the steps would really help people (or just me lol) to maybe understand what others might go through too?
Hi Theresa. Well done getting into the 11's!! Can't wait for that. I too switched to ss+ this week and it's been fantastic!! I feel so satisfied and all my thoughts of food have gone. It might take a bit longer but it just feels right! Looking forward to my weigh in on Monday
Did it last year and lost 4 1/2 stone but gained 28lb
Week 1- 4 20lb
Week 5 ?
This is why I need to address these issues!
I am hoping as I go up the steps that my brain will kick in and I can learn how to maintain my weight!
I will continue to post each day what I am eating and how I am doing I hope this will keep me motivated and may help you x
Take care x
Good luck for your weigh in on Monday Hun let me know how you do! X

Really enjoyed reading and answering everyones posts tonight! I popped into the 1000 maintenance forum tonight but there does not seem to be many people who post in here! I suppose that everyone's posts in the 100% and diaries forums until they go up up past the 810 step?
Well working tomorrow which is unusual for me as I have a transition presentation to do at an Epilepsy College in Surrey so better get some sleep! Take care x
Just found your diary, and really enjoying reading it <3
Well had a chilled out weekend! Day 32 & 33 done!
Enjoyed having a SS+! Meal this week so far! Had some nice green salads and cottage cheese, some chicken salads and an omelette which made a nice change!
Been 100% but have felt hungrier which does not really make sense? Hoping to have lost at least 3lb this week on Wed if possible?
Hope everyone has had a good weekend? I worked yesterday so only really had today off so the weekend seems to have flown by!
Hoping for a good week ahead! X
Have enjoyed reading your diary, how is it eating proper food again?! Lol, Im dreading it in a way as I think I will start fretting about even half a pound! x
