    Hi All,

    I'm here to lose my excess weight and bare my inner soul! I am 35, mum of two, married and in need of finding 'me' again! I used to stand out but now I just fade into the background, and I want to shine again! In the past ten years I have gained, lost, gained, had two babies, stress binged...all the usual!

    I am at the point where I have to do something serious and lose my weight or risk not reaching old age! I had a health scare a few months ago with a breast lump and it's made me finally realise I have take control and get my weight to a healthier and more acceptable level! Plus waking up each day feeling sluggish and tired before I've even got out of bed is not right!:( Oh, and gallbladder and chest pain is horrible!

    Anyway, I found this site a fortnight ago and it's great, lots of inspirational 'real' people to spur me on and who have done marvellously
    in transforming their health, lives and bodies and I want a piece of that...

    I was at a starting weight of......*gulps* 19 stone 3lbs!!!:(:eek::sigh: but I calorie counted for two weeks losing 9lb which is good, but I need a 'quick' visual result to encourage me to stay on track, so LT is the path I have chosen to lose the rest I want to get rid of....plus they're are all lovely nutters on there so I will fit in nicely!:D

    So today at 18 stone 7lb and five foot seven inches, dress size 22-24, my life begins....and I want it downhill all the way! I am aiming for around 6/7 stones off as quickly as possible!

    Thanks Jing! You look so beautiful! I love your diary!:)

    Hi Nictastic! I have been here for a while actually, a few weeks of posting on LT, but only the LT plan since yesterday! So I'm already aware of Garry and his reputation, lol!:D

    Well Done on your first week!:)

    Anyway.....onto day two! I was great yesterday no problems...shakes were rather nice, but the soup, arrrrgh I was gagging!!!:D So that is being returned for shakes!

    I was fine until around 7pm and then I was sooo tired, so after putting the children to bed at 8pm I decided to post on the web for a while and then went to bed 9pm which is like dinnertime to me as I'm a night owl!

    My head was pounding all night, I was even aware of it whilst asleep...as daft as that sounds! I was almost seduced by the smell of toast but I never succumbed to it, thankfully!

    I want KETOSIS now!:)

    Ok, end of day two!

    No headache today but the arrival of my period, which may explain the excruciating headache last night?

    Loving the shakes, had chocolate for brekky, vanilla with a spoon of coffee for lunch and hot chocolate for evening meal....yum!

    I went to Weatherspoons pub today with my MIL, and watched her eat lunch and drink wine whilst I supped a lovely carbonated water....I told her I had " a bad tummy", as I don't want her to know yet! I lost over 4 stones a few years back and was down to 12 and a half stone from 17 stone and I was looking great and she said, she couldn't tell!:(:mad:....funny cause I and everybody else could! My SIL was also on SW with me and lost a couple of stones and she was same-ish start weight as me, and MIL gushed on about her being inspirational funnily enough! (We get on better now, me and the Monster OUTLAW, Cause I only see her about four times a year!):D Next time I see I should be visibly different!

    Anyway, it has been a great day, naughtily weighed myself and scales said I'd lost seven pounds since starting yesterday, but I expect that's water and due to my TOTM, I am not getting to over-excited!

    Hopefully Ketosis is imminent!:)

    Think I may be in Ketosis! Yessssssssss!:)

    I had a great night's sleep, and woke once to go to the loo......water, water, water!

    I could hear my stomach churning when I returned to bed and it wasn't period pain as I have no period pain as is usual during my TOTM!!:) Must be melting fat!:D

    I woke at 5.30-ish and I feel fab, all my housework is done and I'm raring to go!

    Ok, so now for my first shake of the day....

    Hi Kelly!

    Thanks, and yes I agree...everybody here is great and very helpful and supportive! I've actually been here for a few weeks now, but was originally calorie counting, lost ten pounds in two weeks doing my own plan and then moved onto LT this week, now on day three and have lost a further 8 pounds, so 18 lbs just over two weeks....I am delighted!:)

    Unfortunately I hate peppermint, so the tea is a no go for me, But I am having vanilla/coffee and choc/coffee which are lovely, will be returning the gruesome chicken soups to my pharmacy later this morning!

    Good Luck on your journey to slimdom!

    Hi Kelly!

    I returned my yukky soups and was chatting to the pharmacy assistant who said she hated all the shakes and only used the soups herself, so it's all a matter of taste and palate, I suppose!

    I don't like instant soup anyway, so maybe that's the thing with me!:)


    Jenny, Hello there!:wave_cry:

    It is great on here, the LTer's have been giving a good old chuckle for a couple of weeks now...I took lots of advice and read their posts and profiles/photos and decided LT was for me!

    I feel excellent today!

    Good Luck, you're doin fabby!:D

    Almost the end of day 3 and I am feeling really well! I ventured to Asda this evening and was salivating as I strolled past the fish counter and the rotisserie, but I haven't acted on it, but I am obsessing about the smell of cheese on toast with lashing of brown sauce!

    My jeans are feeling quite baggy, which is nice and really looking forward to weigh in on Tuesday!

    Thanks Porgeous!

    I really appreciate your comments, I am definately feeling inspired and I think I suit LT as taking food out the equation is actually easier for me to manage......Forbidden Fruit and all that! I feel I can really do this!

    I am still cooking for my hubby and kids, but they have very different tastebuds to me, so it has been easier than I thought....so hopefully onwards and downwards on scales!
