    Having had a scoot through all of your wonderful posts and storied I thought it might be an idea to have a little day by day account of my trials and tribulations of the re-starter

    I am on day one and have just ate my 3rd porridge of the day and finished my 2 lt bottle of water. I wont lie, I'm cold, tired and feel quite sick from all the water. Having said all those negative things i still feel strangely positive - like i'm waiting for something exciting - perhaps its the feeling of one day soon i will walk in a room and make my husband the proudest man in there. THAT my friends - is my biggest goal. I know i know - i should do this for me, and i some ways i am - but to see my hubbys face full of admiration (and lust!!) would be a dream come true. We have a "works xmas do" i have to attend every year with all his work buddies and i dread it every year. this year WILL be different. I want to walk in there and not feel second best to all the other WWAG (workman wives and girlfriends) and make the man i adore proud to show me off.

    So here's looking at day one kid.....:character00116::character00115::silly::chores016:

    Well...... I cant quite believe it! 7 lbs gone. I think i only did 8lbs the first time round. Its a big mental plus for me but i have to make sure that i dont get complacent - "oh if i eat now i can get it off in one day" my "day by day" attitude is really helping me and also my friend has started LL today so we can support each other through text and email. My husband and me set up some rewards for some mile stones - for the first 10 lbs i loose hell get me a non food surprise and for every 5 lbs after.... His support is appreciated more than he can imagine. Just had my first porridge of the day and now signing off to throw myself into work - to keep me distracted. Gotan oasis concert tonight so that should keep me away from temptation!!

    Afternoon update

    ....crashing. Energy fading fast - staring at the puter screen totally spaced out. Still no thought of eating (feel a bit queasy really) but what a difference a few hours make!! May try to weather the storm with a black coffee - but im scared i may pay for it with a caffeine crash later on......

    Well, my first real side affect kicked in today - major dizzy spells and lethargy you WOULDN'T believe. Of course as this is my second day i know its just the carbs making a booty call for me but it lasted a good 3 hours..... It would have been so easy to give in again but i have promised my self that every negative thought must be thought through and turned into a positive

    i.e. Im hungry = If i'm hungry im burning fat or calories which gets me closer to my goal/jeans/normal weight

    I can beleive how simple but effective this is!!

    I am now happily out the other side of the dreded carb crash and feel SO much better for it. Its changing my thought patterns ive always struggled with - i cant beleive its this simple - im sure this is a definite turning point for me.

    LOL Bring it on Carb Devil :) LOL!!

    If you can really give things thought before you do them and question, is it worth it? Your good head (not saying you have a bad one, lol) will win and keep you in control. Well done for using your good head :) xx

    Thanks Eternal - its just a matter of making yourself get into that mind set - if i b1tch and moan about every low point i'll never succeed - i just need to focus on the end goal

    Well - Went for my official weigh in today and i nearly fell off my chair - I've unofficially been doing CD for 7 days but re-registered with me CDC on monday. Since last wednesday -ive lost - a whopping 11lbs. I cant believe it. I'm so over the moon its unbeleiveable. 16.1 to 15.4 - just like that - boom. I went to an Oasis gig last night and i was so pround - i had nothing to drink (alcohol) and the smell of the chip vans were emence but i resisted that too. I think this time is going to be a real effort, I cant wait to get through the first official week.

    Hey laurenrosalind, Thanks! I see we have a similar journey. the day i get back into any of my 16/18 clothes i will pass out i swear. I know its not far away but so much has happened in betwee. I spoke to my CDC today and all i want is "normality" i want a normalrelationship with food, clothes and confidence. I'm so happy this time rounf i think i can really do it
