3rd and final restart


Full Member
Turning 39 on Saturday made me think, Do i still want to be on this rollercoaster of dieting when im 40? I have a year to sort myself out , can i do it? who knows but this time (yes i say that everytime) i really am going to try.
My daughter brought me a mug with yummy scrummy mummy on it, i want to be that person not fat and 40 :cry:.
Also ive suffered with IBS for years now, i had resigned myself to the fact that i will have to put up with it but while on slim fast it eases, i know for most people they get constipated but for me it just about gets me on the "normal" path in the toilet department. This weekend ive not been on slim fast and boom back to the suffering , so that in its self should keep me on track shouldn't it, so why do i feel the urge to binge grrrrr i get so angry with myself :mad:.
So today is my new start, my final restart.
I'm going to take a leaf out of some of your books and start a daily journal on here and see if that helps.
I don't usually have a set weigh day but from now on i will be weighing in on Mondays and will be using this thread as my journal.
I had some photos taken yesterday, i will be using them as my before photos , they say the camera never lies and boy does it not, i had got clever covering up my flabby bits, clothes hide a multitude of lumps and bumps but seeing myself in just my undies has given my that kick where ive needed it for a long time.
I have just over 5 stone to lose to get to where i should and want to be, this time............ I WILL DO IT !

My ticker, hope ive done it right

I`ve just started SF too this week, having toilet troubles already...lol

I`ve always had trouble sticking to diets before but finding the online diary and especially this site very helpful, whenever my lot decide to have treats i just come on here and read all the success stories or just watch the screensaver...

Welcome and good luck x


soon to be minnie mouse
good luck ice and buffy i'm sure you'll be able to give each other motivation, keep posting and don't give up

Good job you don't work where i do, it's a nightmare if you have a sweet tooth, temptation is around you every day, biscuits, home made cakes and puddings, i would often have a spare pudding,lemon sponge and custard Mmmmm, it's a daily battle! :cry:good job my will power is at a high at the mo, long may it continue.

I get all excited about weigh in`s too..
So much so that i`ve started weighing everyday, probablly not a good idea, but i cant wait to see if i`ve lost any more.
When i go to peoples houses i`m always standing on their scales, just to check..........:scale:ADDICTED LOL
Lol i can imagine you sneaking into everyones bathrooms just to borrow their scales, thankfully i don't have that addiction yet.

Well i did as i said and no snacking at work.

Meal out today, i'm going to be sensible and no pigging out on pudding.
Good luck for tomorrow lizz.

Yesterday was a disaster day, started off so well then went all wrong.
Had my usual smoothie for brekkie and a shake at work for lunch. went out for dinner and that was it i was on the naughty road and stayed there all evening.
Anyway ive given myself a good talking to and im back on track this morning, hope it wont effect my weigh in to much tomorrow.
It might be difficult for me to get online the next few days due to work but i will try my hardest as it does help knowing i will be writing down all i eat everyday, but Monday i am working a double shift followed by an early tuesday, out tuesday night and an early again wednesday, i am going to be dead on my feet by my day off thursday.
i hope everyone reading this is doing well on their chosen diets, keep up the good work.
