    Hi Tara!!

    I wasn't able to start today as planned the package from Slim&Save arrived later then I expected. Im a returning VlCD-er It worked well for me before before I moved on (which I regret doing now) It's been about 17 months since I was last on it so I am really excited about starting it again. I will be tomorrow now 24th June! I will be starting a Diary again I have a package for 28 days so that is what I am aiming to stick to now.

    I left my goals quite large last time which is where I went wrong this time im aiming to shift a minimum of a stone!...As it's my first month back I am expecting this to be straight forward. Then towards the end of MY 28 days around the 21st day I hope to get another 28 days supply all going well I hope.

    How about you?

    I need to update my stats it's all very wrong atm hahah look forward to chatting to you hehhe xx

    Hey Sadia ???

    Today was good for me.... no nausea or headaches... lil hunger pangs between packs but just kept glugging away at the water and green tea. My pee is darker than i thought it should be for the amount of water im drinking (tmi??) Lol

    I weighed myself today on the boots machines.... i am almost 23 stone! Heaviest i have ever been.... 22 stone 10lb and im 48% body fat. BMI is 48... so i have a looong way to go. I want to weigh 11 st 5lbs, literally half of me now eeeeeek! I cannot remember weighing less than 17 stone... even in secondary school, im 28 y/o now.

    Ive decided to keep the weigh ins to a minimum and weigh myself every 3 weeks. Weigh ins mess with my head alot!! I dont want to think about how much im loosing and how fast etc... just want to take everyday as it comes and stay foccussed.

    Let me know how your firat day goes....... wooohooooooo lets do this!

    Muchos love

    Hi Tara!

    lol @ the pee! haha I'm glad you weren't as nauseated today!

    We can definitely do this just take it a step at a time.

    Weighing in every 3 weeks sounds like a good plan! I want to try and limit my weigh ins too as it messes with my head also lol. Iv'e decided once a week which is a big deal as I was on the scale every morning before..

    This time I just want to plough through, my motivation is xmas and being able to wear a pretty dress and going out to a few parties. Iv'e missed a lot of social time in the last decade?

    Iv'e just turned 29 on the 5th aha. So it's also a great motivation to make sure I'm slim before my 30th so I can really celebrate it feeling great!

    What's your motivation? you sound like you're in the best mind set, which is great! :D

    I've started a Diary, I'm going to go through a few now and then get myself to bed as it's late really excited to start.

    Chat soon

    Hay Hay Hay!

    Hows day 1 going Sadia ? Good motivation shuga, I've been missing alot of social time too most my life - not fun! Hopefully i'll be joining you this Christmas with the sparkly sexy christmas dress :)

    My main motivation is to do a handstand and cartwheel! i've never ever done either and i sooooo badly want to!

    This year i have a cousins wedding in August which i'd like to get off as much weight as possible before then and then going to cyprus to see the family at the end of september whom i havent seen in YEARS then bday in November and off to America to see my sister and nephew whom by then it would be over a year i havent seen...

    I've just had enough of lying to myself and being dillusional and just listening to what other people say and going with the flow not making any efoort or changes for myself to be happier.... anytime i complain about my weight or talk about doing something about it people are so nice about it and say things like but your so beautiful and you have a curvy hourglass shape so you still look good and sexy... all v sweet of em but it doesnt help me at all as i just think yea ok i guess and muddle on.
    BUT the other day i was scrolling through pics my mum took (she randomly takes pics when you dont know shes even there) and i saw one of me from behind - OMG i wanted to cry! i was massive, thighs, back, even my neck! jeeez do i really look like that, YES. And compared to the people on the street around me.... gosh.

    I just want to live my life to the full, stop self sabotaging behaivour and start being good to me and honest with myself.

    I would looove to do yoga, go dancing lessons like salsa and play basketball again and feel light on my feet. Oooo and wear heels and have my feet not ache after 5 mins!

    hmmm pretty hefty list....

    Where can i find your diary jelly bean ? would love to have a peak...

    So true Tara! I want to start as I mean to go on and yesterday I was just in the wrong frame of mind. Watching YouTube videos sounds like an awesome idea! I'm going to do the same.

    You sound like you've really got the right attitude I love it.

    Hey ladies,

    Sadia i so hear u... i find myself having lil but strong sabotaging thoughts to pop open the fridge n pop something in my mouth... finding that these occur when i spend too much time thinking about all the things i am going to do that ive never done and how much better my life will be... i think it overwhelms me.. fear of the unknown or not being ready to be happy or feeling like i will be miserable if this slim and healthy and happy image isnt a reality when im slim as now i have that illusion to hold onto and can blame myself for not being happy on my weight but what will i have to lie to myself about when i get to this dream weight...

    i find that just bringing myself back to the moment helps me. I know what i want, i know i want to do this diet and i know i want to be slim and healthy. So i just focus on getting through this moment anytime i feel a sudden sabotaging thought and not judge it or myself and keep it moving.

    How are you feeling today? Whats going on for you in your mind thats keeping you from feeling ready?

    Oo i dont have a diary. Might start one tonight or tomorrow. Will go look for urs now

    And hiiiii Amanda! Welcome! Hows your first few days going hun?

    Hi guys, I'll let you know a bit about myself.

    I'm 28, no kids, live with my boyfriend. I am on slim and save and have been on and off for about a year. I've been dieting but not putting my life on hold, I've been on 3 holidays, Christmas, countless birthdays and trips away in that time.
    I've started again as I am maid of honour for my best friend of 25 years in August and her hen party is July 19th and I don't want to worry about how I look in photos and feel confident in myself.
    So I started this diet at 17 stone last year, no idea how I got that to that but I feel it was a mix of bad job and bad relationship over the course of 10 years.
    I got down a month ago to 12.7 and then had a crazy month including 2 weeks all inclusive eating and drinking and got back to 13.1. I had a sneeky weigh this morning and I'm back to 12.9. I would love to shed a couple of stone before August.
    Anyways thanks for listening and how much have you guys got to loose? Xx

    Hey Dee haha I know two cherries!

    I know it's really weird were similar in ages and goals It must just be the loom of 30 haha well it is for me being 29 for the last few week feels weird im 1 year off 30 and no way am I doing it like this heck no!

    You've done awesome to get down to 12 stone!

    My overall goal for this year is 12 stone Im 17 now and iv'e been 12 before until I was 22 then I shot up to 15 within a year and since then it's just crept up and up over the last 5-6 years!!

    My life goal is to get to around 9 stone but iv never been that small in my entire adult life so have no idea if it would suit me! But initially 12 on this diet and the rest by other means Im just taking it in my stride only on day 2 now.

    If I can do this right up until end of November and get the next 4-5 stone off I will be one happy bunny :D
