    Hi All
    I've done LL and CD a few time, lost weight and stupidly put it all back on again. I started LL again beginning of september last year lost 3 1/2 stone in 3 months. It was a struggle, was hoping the councelling they offer would help as I was successful losing the weight on it before, unfortunatley it did not work out that way the group meetings were not what I expected and people came and left, 1 meeting it was just me, which left me deflated, so I'd stop at the supermarket on the way home :cry::cry:.

    As it would never be what I needed, i had to decide what would be the most successful diet for me, CD has more convenient packs and mix a mousse, so decision made, called me CDC and started the next week, I've lost 8lb in 2 not very good weeks, but a lot better than they had been.

    I have just over 10 weeks until I go on holiday, so my plan is another 3 - 4 stone off before then, it will mean a steady 5lb a week weight loss needed, but I can do it, i've done it before just need to tackle each and every situation without food.

    Well first step is done, I'm on here, second is to head to the computer rather than the kitchen third is new wardrobe for my holiday :D:D:D

    I'm sure I'll be here most nights to keep me on the SS wagon :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Hi everyone, I started again on Tuesday so am only on day 3. I cant wait to get into ketosis cos the rumbling is deafening me! LOL! I gave up last time after losing about 3 stone (which all went back on again recently due to ill health) because I didnt drink enough water and had problems with the dreaded constipation. Eeugh! Not this time I am drinking about 6 pints of water a day so far. Good luck to everyone. It's good to know that we can all support and inspire each other when the going gets tough

    Evening
    Well lost 2lb, it wasn't a great weekend, but better than it had been, so thought it would be higher, this week will be better.

    I bought a McD's brekkie this morning :break_diet::cry:, got back in the car started drinking the coffee and came to my senses, I drank the coffee, but the rest is still in the car untouched - it looked and smelt soo good, but then i thought about my holiday and couldn't actually bring myself to eat it :D:D:D:D:D

    Hi
    I got through yesterday 100%, little blip today, but could have been a lot worse.

    Watched Supersize vs Superskinny, given me an extra kick up the butt :asskick:. Not that I want to be superskinny, but it has given me something to think about

    Right off to bed before the late night food demons appear

    Fingers crossed tomorrows weighin is 2lb, 3lb would be better because that'll get me into the next stone, but whatever i lose is good

    Will update tomorrow

    Ok, so I haven't been on for a while. I'm not doing too bad, it could be far worse, I am just over 4 half stone down since September, not as much as I wanted, but going in the right direction.

    Just under 3 weeks until my holiday and I'm really looking forward to it, not showing my body in a swimsuit, but hey only 3 people will know me - I hope

    Fingers crossed to 10 - 14lb off in the next 2 weeks.

    Better get to bed before I look aimlessly into the fridge for the 20th time this evening :)
