    Today is my first day restarting CD. To cut a long story short I’ve been messing around for what seems like ages & ages, flitting between different diets CD, LL, WW, SF but not ever sticking around long enough to make any serious lasting change.

    I have a blue ‘goal’ dress that I bought at xmas time while feeling totally depressed trawling round the shops trying desperately to find a couple of outfits for xmas dos. Three months on & with only yo-yoing the same 10lb to my name, I have moved the dress from out the back of the wardrobe & hung it up on my bedroom door so I can see it every day!!

    I really really want to kick myself into gear as I have a hen weekend in 8 weeks time & friends wedding in 16 weeks. Both with old school friends I don’t see very often - not that it should matter but they are all still slim Jims & I’m much bigger than I was at school. :cry:

    I have 4 stone to loose so may not be enough time to get in the dress – but I know if I don’t stick to this today & every day from now, I will be sitting there in 16wks time still frumpy & fugly wishing I had just tried that little bit harder…

    Haha..now off to find me some Rocky theme tune music!!:eek::eek:

    you can do it you could easily lose 2 and a half stone before the hen night and maybe even have the four stone of before the wedding. CD do say one stone a month and a bit more in your first.

    Best of luck

    Life passes by quickly, doesn't it? I accept that I have faffed about with a CD re-start but, like you, I have come to the motivational point again where I am ready to do it.
    Try that dress on regularly and let the goal move closer. Good luck.
