    I thought I better start keeping a diary of my weight loss and other stuff, I am not sure if anyone will read it, but if you are welcome to my ramblings!

    My reasons why I decided to diet might seem a little strange well they do to me, I go every year with my two best friends to Whitby to the Goth weekend and this year was no different but I felt awful and it wasn't just the fact that I was in a corset, I felt sluggish and really unhappy deep down, but on the outside I was my usual happy bouncy self, every time I got on the scales my weight was more than it was the time before and I was eating hardly anything! ok I do have a wonky thyriod but even the tabs for that didn't seem to help!
    I had a migraine on the day we left and felt throughly awful, when I got home I cried this is something I never do, my poor OH didn't know what the hell was going on and neither did I!
    The next day I was so ill with a chest infection that had appeared over night I really felt so not myself, it was during the night that I woke up and came on to the pc and for some unknown reason, I typed diet into the search! and up came this fab forum and I spent around 4 hours reading stories and even crying at the before and after pics.
    It was now Friday 7th November a week before my 43rd birthday and I knew I had to do something about the weight, but what diet to go on so I spent a whole day researching various diets, I looked at Weight watchers and slimming world, they got ruled out because of the amount of food - I am not a big eater - I looked at the Cambridge diet - but no food at all and no tea with milk, so I came on here and saw w8 and thought that sounds good, so I emailed my local consultant and she rang me the next day and we had a long chat. In the meantime I spoke to my best friends and told them what I was going to do, they thought I was totally mad but will suppport me 100%.
    The date was set for me to start W8 the day after my birthday, my consultant came round the day before my birthday and told me everything in detail and that she was only a call or text away if I needed anything.
    The day of my birthday arrived and I went out with my friends and we sort of had a farewell drink to the old me
    I started W8 on 15th November, the first two three day were tough and I mean tough, but all I kept saying to myself is that I can do this, and before I knew it was the end of my first week and to my honest shock I had lost just over 5 pounds, my lovely consultant said that if I wanted to eat just eat at weekends so I did, and believe me food tasted so amazing, and well cherry tomatoes well they are better than choclate!
    This week I really didn't think I had lost that much much I had lost another 3 and half pounds, I have weighed myself this morning and I have lost another couple of pounds, and I am sure I am finding this too easy
    I have also bought myself a wii fit and I love it! its so much fun and I am sure that helps
    Well thanks for reading my long entry and no doubt I will write more about me in it shortly

    Yay well done you! Is W8 a meal replacement programme then? I know what you mean about eating loads being the reason you avoided SW - its the reason I joined!!! Loads of food - just what I need, I'm a very greedy girl!
    I'll follow your diary with interest.

    Just loving this diet

    Just had a quick go on my wii fit, as I had not been on since Friday due to having new sofas and our room being totally upside down.
    With the wii fit you can do a body test where it measures your weight and your bmi, I always do one at the start and one at the end lol, and this time when I got on it told me I had lost 2lbs so thats now 10.5 lbs I have lost since 15th November, I am still in shock, not weighed this for nearly two years, thinking I better start looking on good old ebay for some smaller clothes!
    And to top it all I feel the best I have felt in ages, and my skin looks so good and the dark rings that I used to have round my eyes have almost gone
    Ok I am off for a long hot shower and then a read before bed

    Had to put some different trousers on for work this morning, as mine were erm a bit big - oh that makes such a change from to tight - and I thought emergency black trousers lol - they are called this as they have only been worn once and they were oh so tight, so I got them out of the drawer pulled them on thinking eek these are going to be tight bracing myself to breathe in when doing the button up and I needn't have worried as they were fine, and they are dare I say it a bit big! I also had to tighten my bra up as well lol.:eek:
    Just before I went to Whitby I sold all my clothes that I had not worn for a while - I am so wishing I didn't now but its a good excuse to buy more as I love ebay lol
    Saw an old work colleague as well today, and she commented on how good I looked and she even asked me if I had lost weight, she said my skin looked amazing - odd you might think but when I tell you shes a beauty consultant in Boots - I can tell you I was chuffed to bits
    Loving my wii fit just done another 30 mins on the step class, decided only to do the body test every other day, mind you I love going on the scales now as everytime I get on I have lost a little bit more and its so much better then feel so annoyed with myself when I used to go on and the weight was going up
    Off for my usual long hot shower and then think I might read for a bit

    Had a yukky week as had a migraine again on Wednesday so had to come home from work yet again!
    Was in to day at 8.30 but I spent all day walking up and down the store handing out leaflets to customers and I will be doing the same again tomorrow so at least I will be keeping fit.
    No weigh in tomorrow as I have to work late, so it a double weigh in for next week!

    Yippee I have lost a Stone

    Still can't quite believe it, I have just weighed myself on my wii of course and I have now lost a stone and a bit :eek:
    I had no weigh in with my consultant this week as I had to work late on Thursday and Friday and I am sure that giving leaflets out at work has pushed it that extra bit, I must have spent at least five hours on each day walking back and forwards in the store.
    My work trousers that a few weeks ago I couldn't get in are now getting a bit big, I was hoping that they were going to cover me until the end of the month at least.
    A couple of people at work have started to say that they can tell I have lost weight, they are all really nice and always ask what shake etc I have for dinner and ask to smell and a couple have asked for a taste as well!
    I haven't seen my two best friends since the day before my birthday and am not seeing them until the 19th, I wonder what their reaction will be as they will tell me straight away what they think.
    Even I am beginning to tell myself, as my face looks thinner especially my cheeks and I can't believe how well I feel I am sure its not normal lol
