    Been reading through this forum for a while and decided to bite the bullet and go back to LL. I first started in 2005 , but 7 weeks in I discovered I was pregnant :) and stopped. I was so focused and I know I wold have continued had I not fallen pregnant, so after my daughter was born I decided to return, I lasted 2 weeks , hated every minute etc and had suspected gallstones, I stopped immediatley even though I didnt need too, I used the excuse. I then fell for my 2nd child.

    Now here I am 3 years on and I am fatter than ever, I really want to loose this weight once and for all and have decided to return to LL. My resolve feels stronger thatn 2nd time round but I am terrified, scared of failing again, scared that I will be fat forever, dreading the foodpacks.... knowing that this time no excuses barred I have to do it. I feel enormous pressure ( from myself) and I dont know if I can suceed.

    I guess Im not looking for answers, just that others may have felt like this, but managed to suceed. I know on the surface I am quite a determined strong person but not when it comes to food. Im almost scared to suceed.....

    Any words of wisdom would be lovely, and I will keep posting and trying to help where I can

    well done to u for comimg back! thats the first step and u made it. u obviously want to do this for yourself, u come across as a very strong will woman who knows she can do it! u have all us guys with u, not behind u but right there by your side for the good and the bad, if u need to share your thoughts and experience or if u just want a moan or a chat. we all know how u feel and we r all there for each other :)

    its scarry but it is also an answer to weight loss where other answers have failed. u got to week 7 b4 and would have sticked with it but for your wonderful pregnancy. the 2nd time wasnt as successful, maybe u wasnt so focused or something? u seem ready this time, and i wish u every success. come on, u CAN do this!! x

    Hi there

    I'm a returning LL candidate and having been on Foundation for 5 days now, I know how you are feeling! It's a scary world, shutting yourself off from food, normality, etc - especially when you have kids - I have 2 and hate the thought of them knowing and seeing me taking "powdered" food to survive - but hey, Happy Mum = happy kids in my opinion! So if you can psyche yourself up and get motivated to go along to a class and start, you'll be doing the right thing. You are obviously determined and have had a few false starts with pregnancies etc, but you know deep down you want to get that body back - so in the words of Nike "Just do it" - sounds a bit brutal, but sometimes it just has to be that way. don't know if I'm being of any help here, but am hoping that you will keep logging in and getting inspiration from whoever or wherever you can - also logging in will keep you occupied and away from the kitchen!!

    So good luck - let me know when you get going - it's hard but once you get started and find that the foodpacks are actually quite reasonable, you'll be fine. There are ways of taking them to disguise the taste too if you really are anti-foodpack flavours. i've just started to use a Vanilla one in a cup of black coffee (half and half) and it's like a Latte - so if that suits, you'll love that.

    Keep in touch and GOOD LUCK GIRL - you CAN do this. Thousands more have too!
