    Hi all. I have been on and off CD for a number of months and have found it really easy to stick to until I eat just one little thing and then find I binge on everything for like a week!
    Yesterday I decided enough was enough and as I am getting married in 2 months time I am setting myself a super hard (but possible!) challenge.
    My aim is to lose 2 stone in 8 weeks!!
    I am going to put my absolute ALL into dieting as I ordered my dress 2 sizes too small and have prob lost nearly 1 size! eek!!!
    Who fancies joining me? Post your own targets and lets get skinny(er) in 8 weeks!!!!!!

    Hi Weddingbelle,
    I'll join you in an 8 week challenge. I've lost 18½ lb in the first 3 weeks, but starting from now, I would like to have a total of at least a 3 stone loss, so that is a minimum of 23½.
    Go for it and think of those wedding photos. I lost loads of weight on WW when I got married and I remember my WW consultant saying to me think of your photos and that is what kept me going.

    I'll also join - I lost 2.5 stone between 1st November and Xmas Eve and due to various reasons, I only started back on CS last week.

    I'm hopefully moving overseas to work mid April so I'd like to lose 2 stone by the end of March so that I can buy bikinis to take with me!

    ? I'm up for the 8 week challenge too, I've lost 1 stone in 4 weeks, would love another 2 stone off for when my dad arrives. Not seen him for 2 years, he won't recognise me ( hopefully!! ) ?

    Brilliant guys. Sounds like everyone's really motivated and we've all got things we want to look good for! It is definately achievable if we stay 100 per cent! I nearly cracked already today. My first night off work and I have a funeral to go to tomorrow. Can't sleep as I'm still in night mode. Luckily I have a very good friend who I was on the phone to when I said I was thinking of eating. She told me i'd be so disappointed with myself afterwards and to stay motivated and think of the outcome for the wedding. She is awesome!! I went downstairs and made a pint of water and a choccy shake and now have no more tummy rumbles or feelings of hunger. Believe it or not girls my scales now say 13 stone 6 already! They were what I weighed 13.13 on on monday! So happy I didn't go crazy. Im back to see my consultant next week as had 2 weeks worth of shakes left over from last time so using them up first. If I can drop half a stone in 3 days this is a very promising start! Good luck guys. Let me know how you're getting on xxxxxxxxx

    Hey guys. I am we'll up for this. Have a holiday booked for 11 weeks and desperate to lose at least two stone possibly three by then with regular exercise.

    Looking at all these amazing women who have already lost two stone in eight weeks makes me realise its completely achievable if we work hard with lots of will power.

    We will be skinny!!!!

    I've had quite a good couple of days in all honesty; no real headaches or hunger...but today I'm struggling. Really hope I'm on the cusp of Ketosis. My energy is 'up' but I'm feeling bit more dizziness and washed out. I did have a cup of boullion so hoping it will get me through this short lived grottiness!

    I think day 9 / 10 were my worst days for hunger but it definitely passes. Keep drinking the water !! I have drank so much water today I feel like I am positively floating.

    I make wedding cakes/birthday cakes for a living and have spent the day carving chocolate cakes for big 3D designs and I have chucked that much cake away today from the offcuts it is criminal lol - all in a good cause though. There was a time that I would have eaten the remainder but not any more. Am staying strong and focused so come next weigh in on Tuesay, fingers crossed I will have another decent loss.

    Thanks Katie. I see you have started today. Hope you have a great first week. Just remember to keep drinking the water as it really does help.

    Day 4 - in ketosis but it's going to be the first big test this weekend; we're out for dinner tonight for a birthday, and then to a friends for dinner tomorrow.... since I've kept this secret (whilst i get my self into the groove) I'm using the 'I've got a dodgy tummy' excuse for only having water/coffee.
    I hope it works.
    In other news somebody this morning said I was looking 'good' :)

    Hey can I join in? I'd like to lose 2stone in 8 weeks. SS most of the time and SS+ break for a week in the middle. We have a professional family photo session in April and I imagine how I will look on them if I lose 2 stone and that's what's keeping me going. I mean, what is 8 weeks in a lifetime? Nothing! I'm hoping to continue for another month after that too so get to all time goal which I've never reached before xx
