    Well here I am back to Cambridge! I did it last year and got to my lowest weight of 13.13 but stopped for my 30th and a holiday of a lifetime in November and never got back on and now I'm 2 stone heavier :(
    I have tried slimming world the last month and it was too slow I lost 8lbs
    Summer is creeping up and i want to feel good come May and June so decided to do sole source again!!

    Saw consultant this morning I weigh in at 15.12 :( but day one is complete and I'm feeling very positive!!
    Just need to down more water as only 2 litres done today

    Just been looking at river island online and it's spurring me on for nice summer clothes :)

    Hi, I have just started again today. I am on day 3. I would love to feel comfortable in the summer too. I hated last summer and just felt horrible and always kept jumpers on as did not want my arms on show when we were out anywhere so was always boiling. Could not stand another summer like that! Is Tuesday your weigh in day then?

    I am doing SS+. So I have about an extra 200 calories than you. 600ish total. I have done this diet before to and I lost 3 and a half stone last time. I am definately finiding it easier than before. Still got a long way to go though!

    You have made me crave costa hot chocolate now :).

    I started on Tuesday but I had my weigh in Monday evening. I find I need to drink water alot which helps.

    Oops sorry ?

    My consultant has told me to do some SS plus days if I need to so I won't feel guilty for eating some protein! I will keep them to days I really struggle.

    I really hope I last this time as I want to feel happy and comfortable this summer!

    Are u doing anything tomorro for valentines day?? We have a rare night out planned as actually have a babysitter so thinking cinema! And a drink so I don't eat but my OH has said nandos so I could actually have a chicken breast and salad leaves and I'll be happy with that x

    I did SS+ last time I did the diet and the losses were just as good as SS for me.

    Me and my hubbie have tomorrow off work so spending the day together but nothing food related. I am then babysitting for my sister in the evening so should be ok. Chicken breast and salad leaves will be fine to have out. When I was on the diet before I went out a few times. I am a vegetarian so its harder as can not have chicken breast when out but would just have salad leaves and cucumber haha, very exciting I know.

    I hope you have a nice evening out tomorrow :)
