Hello! I imagine I will be talking to myself on here for quite a while as I know the LL area tends to be less busy than other bits of Minimins, but I want to start a diary and am on LL so here I am! I'm a returner. After maintaining a six stone weight loss successfully for two years or so I let things go to pot by comfort eating and drinking my way through a very difficult situation at work. I managed to get the company to move me in the end (I was v scared at one time that by speaking up I would lose my job. I'm less courageous/willing to be forthright than I used to be as my husband no longer works due to ill health). Anyway, I now have a new job, and office, and manager, and feel empowered by making things change. Back to 'me' again. So now to lose the weight baggage (my 'cocoon') and get back to feeling full of energy and oomph again. It's week one, though I started back at group doing 5:2 four weeks ago, in order to get out of the binge cycle I was stuck in and get my head in the right place. First weigh in is tomorrow. I have stuck to plan 100% but am a little bunged up (!!!) so the loss might not be as big as it could be.
