    Hello!

    I don't know if anyone remembers me - I was a 2009 September Starter and received hugely valuable support from the amazing peeps on this forum as I lost 31lbs on LighterLife Total (and learned loads through CBT) between September and December.

    I moved to LLL, but then had to quit the diet a stone from my goal weight, as I had some medical stuff investigated close to Christmas 2009 (nothing medical to do with LighterLife though), with an eye to starting again in 2010 to lose the final stone.

    Over the last 10 months a stone has crept on, and with it misery, lack of confidence, and a general sense of losing control with my life.

    So about a month ago I quit smoking and, noticing that I was eating my way through nicotine withdrawal, pledged to get back in the LL saddle and get to my goal weight - and use some of that CBT wisdom to help me cultivate a positive mental attitude.

    So here I am again, nervous and lightheaded on day 2 of the plan, wanting to lose 27lbs. I'm hungry, woozy and running to the loo every hour because I'm drinking so much water! At least I've learned that I find it difficult getting into ketosis, so have taken Monday and Tuesday off work.

    Anyway, hello - and hello to any other returners. Here we go again! :wave_cry:

    Thanks so much 86 :) Realised after I posted that how negative it sounded. It's mainly because I didn't want to sound too *upbeat*. Truth is I've had a hell of a great time - Las Vegas, many cupcakes, etc. It's just a case of losing control and not having enough strategies under my belt.

    Hey Yoyo! Lovely to hear from you - sorry you've gained, too, but my LLC always says that weight loss is a journey and it's okay to not have it down pat all the time. You live and learn from your mistakes, etc.

    How are you getting through your first few days? Mine are a heady mix of watching crappy movies, snoozing, computer games and whining at my other half. :)
