Well, here goes nothing... again!

I started CD early last year and only managed a pitiful 3 days on it and decided in November to give it a bash again after new year and get this extra weight shifted!

I spoke to a new CDC this morning and have an appointment tomorrow morning to get my packs and I can start on Wednesday!!!

PLUS!!! This CDC is cheaper than the last one, she charges £1.70/sachet!

I am so very excited this time and am absolutely determined to do it this time! I AM going to be the new me this summer!! yay!! :party0011::party0049::mermaid:

I will be back all the time for support and distractions!!

Thanks everyone!

Hi Dappy :) I think I found the pressure of being in a team too much last time so I might wait a couple of weeks before I join one this time lol!

Feeling good today, I'm going to only drink water all day tomorrow and cut back carbs today and tomorrow to avoid a bad withdrawal :s

Thanks Katycakes!

In truth, a lot has happened in the last year since I joined minimins and it has taken my focus away completely but the icing on the cake was my 29 yo brother taking his life just before Christmas.
It has shown me that life is too short and if I don't take a stand right now to lose this weight then when will I?
I don't want to die fat! I want to be healthy and thin, start getting regular cycles again and start a family! I dont want to be an overweight mummy. When (if) I get pregnant I'd like to see my bump when it starts NOT when it overtakes the fat!
I want to be able to walk into nice shops like Monsoon or Kew and see an outfit and not have to put it back because they dont have my size, it doesn't look right on me or because "I might be thin soon so I wont get much wear out of it".

I want to wear shorts in the summer and feel confidant about it and wear nice dresses out to dinner with my husband.

I don't think being thin will make me ultimately happy but it will make me considerably happier than I am now and will improve my quality of life tenfold!

I think, therefore I am - I think I can do this, therefore I can and I will :)

(sorry for the rant!!)

Aw, ChocolateCat, so sorry to hear about your brother. Sometimes things like that put it all in perspective and make us see how short life really is... and how important not to waste a minute of it. Big hugs.
