    HI ALL.

    So after a rather decadent Christmas, tomorrow is D DAY - CD restart day.

    I had managed to maintain my weight that i lost since July - then i let things slide and put on half a stone - then I lost it - then i put it on again and now I aim to lose it plus another 2 stone for good measure. :)

    Have had a couple of incidents recently to do with my size/weight and it has really made me think.

    The first one was i put on a pair of size 14 trousers that fit me about a month ago - they wouldnt do up. :( I suppose i had been kidding myself up until that point that i hadnt put on weight.
    The second was in an equestrian shop today. My friend and I went sales shopping and i wanted some waterproof over trousers for when i'm riding my horse. There were 2 pairs left both Extra Large. My friend tried them on and they were way too big - she was disappointed as she really liked them.
    I then tried them on and they fit. :( Size 16 and labelled an XL did not make my day.
    I was embarrased so of course made light of it and bought them saying how lucky i was to be fat.
    I am so sick of feeling like the 'fat' friend - things have got to change.

    I want to be a size 12 - a comfortable 12, not an only just 12 ;)
    I want a pair of long boots.

    So here we go again - for the last time. CD here I come!!!!

    Sorry about those moments Helen, but just think that's the last time they're gonna happen. You know come tomorrow exactly how quickly those size 14 trousers are gonna fit again, and those other trousers are gonna be too big!! Good luck for your restart honey ;)

    Hi Boofaloo sweetheart,

    I think we're all sick of being the fat friend. THE FAT FRIEND who isn't allowed to get down in the dumps about being overweight or not having any clothes to wear, instead we have to put up or "eat less, exercise more".

    Grrr..... I'm going off on to a rant and I have no right to, not on your diary.

    Good luck honey.

    WOW. Had a lovely New Year and am still on CD!!!

    Feeling ok - very hungry though. Will be glad when ketosis arrives. I am very tearful at the mo because i'm so hungry. How silly!!!! :D

    Am fed up with winter now. Went up to do the horse today and it was so windy and rainy and cold!! :( Have decided i need to get a house with some land so it makes things easier!!

    Feel like i'm struggling a bit now but going to get in the bath in a minute and try and keep busy.

    Happy new year everyone!!

    Hi Boofaloo

    I know what you mean, I'm feeling hungry too, which is a horrible feeling. I've started back on 1000 cals today, having put a bit back on over Christmas and after eating too much the last few weeks, tummy is feeling very empty this morning LOL.

    Just keep busy & your mind on other things, especially how (more) gorgeous you're going to be :)

    I walked to work instead of driving and only have a fleece to wear as my boobs have grown in 7 weeks and can't get my coat on!!!

    Stick to it, we can do it!!!

    Major disaster this morning and I am seriously not happy at all. :(
    Went to get a CD pack out of my cupboard only to find the everything swimming in water and the packs all soaking wet.
    My dishwasher has leaked and ruined everything in the cupboard that could be ruined. :( :(

    I have no money to buy anymore until hubby gets paid again which is the week after next so i am really not a happy bunny today.

    Stop reading now if you dont want to hear me rant!!!!

    I am so sick of things going t*ts up - I just get myself sorted out and then something comes along to mess things up.
    It feels like there is a conspiracy theory out there that doesnt want me to lose weight. There are so many obstacles and stumbling blocks - AAARGH I am feeling very sorry for myself.
    I phoned hubby up distraught and slightly annoyed as i am sure it's his fault (has to be - it cant be mine! ;)) and we ended up having a huge row!!

    One of my friends was on CD and i know she has a few packs left over so i will phone her in a minute and beg, borrow or steal some off her.

    I have the fire on and loads of packs on the fire guard drying them out!!

    I have salvaged a few and in reality things probably arent that bad - i had a soup for lunch which was a 'damaged' one. The powder was a bit clogged but not too bad and the soup tasted no different.

    I have about 5 days worth that i think can be saved.

    Ok just counted if i can save the 'wet' packs i have 9 days left.
