    Let me tell you a little about myself... for those that do not know me My name is mandi i'm 41years old & have two children my daughter Tegan who is 22yrs old & my son Marcus (Razorbladelove) who is 21yrs old. I have a wonderful husband who is 8 years younger than me & has supported me throughout....

    When i first went on a VLCD i began with LighterLife, i started my first on 28th October 2006 (The day before my 40th birthday, I hated the fact I’d reached 40 & not lost my weight) Starting weight of 16st 10lbs, 106 days later on 11th Feb 2007 I took a break from LL due to illness (not LL related) weighing 11st 8lbs, a total loss of 62lbs..
    On the 11th April 07 I returned to a VLCD but instead switched to CD, I re-gained a little bit of weight (10lbs) , so my new staring weight was 12st 4lbs., the lowest weight i reached was 11st 4lbs……I'd lost so much weight by going from a size 22/24 to a size 12/14 .

    But this year I’ve had a really tough year, my depression became so bad I had a break down & almost ended up in a nut house…lol. My daughter was diagnosed with crohns disease & repeatedly in & out of hospital, my way of coping was food!!!!!

    Unfortunately I have gained 42 pounds!!! :cry: :cry:

    My mental health is slowing improving so it's time to get my weight back in check.....

    Hi, I'm not doing CD, I'm doing a stint on W8, as I too did really well on LL but lost the plot a little in the past 6 months, so I know where you are coming from. I wish you all the best and hope you do as well as you did before. I look forward to reading about your progress, best of luck. :):):)

    Hi Mandi,

    Sorry to hear you've had such a tough year. When the kid's have a problem is hurts so much more, no wonder you have felt down.

    You are making a positive step now and I wish you loads of luck.

    I saw you on on inspiration slide show and you look fantastic!
