    Howdy all........

    Crikey, where to start......

    Firstly I just wanted to thank you for your honesty and inspiring posts.......I have been toying with the idea of CD for a few weeks and finally took the plunge.....it took a few comments recently to give me a kick up the fat bottom and make me actually want to take control of my life and my weight....

    I've only really tried the odd diet once or twice in the past but always felt so despondent with losing 1/2 to 1lb a week after I had been extra 'good'.....so I kidded myself for a good many years that I was happy as I was and adopted a larger than life personality to make up for what I lacked in looks and body etc.....the comments recently hurt me alot and forced me to take a long hard look at myself and I knew that I have been a blinkin good actress and deep down I am incredibly unhappy with my weight.

    And so here starts the metamorphosis for me......

    My family (especially my mum) are really supportive of my decision, they only want what is best for me and what will make me genuinally happy......I'm not telling anyone at work what I'm doing just yet, (as that is where some of the hurtful comments have come from and I know they wouldn't have my best interests at heart).......so thanks to my awesome CDC for her brill idea (thank you Mandy if you read this!) I am now unofficially wheat and lactose intolerant....lol.....great excuse for the obligatory birthday cakes and endless biccies and milky coffees! :)

    So, I'm a day into this awesome journey and feeling incredibly positive and determined........so far so good (2 packs down and 4 litres of water gone)........

    I hope that I will stay just as determined and focused as I do right now many weeks down the line......I have a feeling I will with all the tremendous amount of support and inspiration around........

    So a huge massive hello from me.....Jules!

    Welcome Julesy. I think if you can get through the first week, then you should find it plain sailing.

    Best of luck and I hope your wheat and lactose intolerance is cured in 82lb's time.

    Thank you both so much for the lovely welcome!!!

    I have a pretty good feeling that in 82llbs time my wheat and lactose intolerance will be a thing of the past...hee hee....obviously not too much in the past...don't ever want to gorge myself on oodles of cakes and biccies again........

    Oh and wish me luck....day two will be tomorrow and I have a first aid exam at work in the afternoon.....should be interesting.....however, if I feel like I do now then no probs! :)

    Hi Julesy

    Welcome to CD and to Minis, your post rang so many bells with me, I too hadn't tried dieting that much in recent years and had tried the approach of being fat and happy until I had a major reality check!! You sound so positive and the support of your family will make all the difference.

    Good luck on your journey and keep us posted on how you are doing!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

    Frejja - I'm currently weighing in at 15.5 and am 5'3" small...so I'm hoping to lose 6 stone too! My ultimate goal is to be in my 10's by August for my cousins wedding......would love to wear a girly strapless dress and actually feel pretty!

    Becky - I have around 6 stone to lose and the thought of going down the slimming club route and losing 1/2lb a week is just horrific for me.....the stories that I read on here and just so inspiring and my CDC has her own incredible story too which is just amazing! Oh and just think Becky, you may have started at 20 stone but you will never ever be that again......!!! Well done you!

    Georgie - WOW WOW WOW!!!! You are so gorgeous!!!! How you look now is just how I would love to look too - your journey is amazing and you really are a strong and determined lady!

    My mum commented today that she has never known me so determined and excited about anything ever and i really truly am.
    I'm a nice person on the inside, I just want to be a nice person on the outside too....does that make sense?

    Thank you so much Lacey!

    I just keep thinking to myself that this strict restriction is only for such a short period of my life and then I can start to actually enjoy food and have a better relationship with it.....in the grand scheme of things, this is no time at all is it...especially when you consider how many more years ahead of us we will have of being healthy, happy and slim.......a little discomfort for a lifetime of happiness......
