    I've just restarted the LL diet this morning and I've done absolutely bugger all at work this morning except surfing the internet looking at weight loss forums and LL articles and reading the minimins forum to keep me going! It does totally consume me and I remember this happening last time. I've really got a lot of work to do today but the diet seems to take all my focus - anyone else find this?!:eek:

    I am totally obsessed with LL, I love it and I loathe it, but to me it is a means to an end. I want to feel Fit and attractive again, but more importantly I want to be healthy. I know what you mean about surfing minimins, I am beginning to wonder if I have a life outside this forum! :rolleyes: However, to me it is also a life saver because it keeps me entertained, supported and away from thoughts of food! Good luck with your weight loss journey Slimjanine and hippoellie , and everyone else looking for a way forward! Love, Angela x

    I'm already obsessed with LL and I've not even started yet :rotflmao: I think that its because I really do see it as a new start for me. I've been overweight for as long as I can remember and failed at every other diet I've tried. A couple of friends have done brilliantly well on LL and seeing their success has really inspired me that this is going to change my life.

    I want to be able to wear what I want, and shop where I want, to have more energy and not get out of breath all the time. I hate it that in the summer I get so hot and uncomfortable, I have constant back pain and I know its down to being overweight. Most of all, I want to like myself again!

    I've done so much research about LL, read up as much as I can so I know what to expect. I just want to get started now!

    I think I'm obsessed at the moment but luckily/unluckily I daren't go on the net at work as our pc's can be monitored so that's a bit of a downer.. but as I have to work that does help take my mind off the LL and the whole diet thing.

    I cant browse minimins at work cos I'd get sussed, we're a really small workforce. I came on here as soon as I got a chance tho. The thing thats so good about this site is that I can go on and on about LL and noone minds. There's only so much my nearest and dearest can take! :eek:

    LOL mine too - though hubby has just told me that when I offered him one of the chocolates my son made me last night out of the chocolate shake he was sorely tempted to take one and eat it as they looked really nice but then felt he should say no as he said 'you don't get to eat anything and I couldn't face taking it off you' ...... mind you he did tell me this as he was sat there with crackers and cheese --- swine :)

    A friend rang me just now and the first thing she asked was: "Are you excited about Wednesday"

    I am on week 9 of LL & still obsessed with minimins and anything LL.

    I think the support on here is fantastic & I feel like I have made a lot of new friends. I don't get any work done though and my hubby gets annoyed with me so am trying to ween myself off gradually and resolve to only go on during the week and only if absolutely necessary at weekends.:eek:

    Yup on here alot but not in work. I think in a way you have to be a bit obsessed to stick to it & its great to be among people who understand! Pleased I'm not the only one frustrated to start! Mind you its been great to have this time to get informed, to know people & to prepare emotionally & physically

    Janine I don't think I can think of a bigger compliment than that that you've had off Pixie - that must feel amazing.

    I'm looking forward to reading your blog when it's back on now!

    Pixie very well done on a 3 stone loss :)
