    I am currently:
    40 years old
    215 pounds
    5'1"
    Training for dragon boat competitions.

    Am heavier than the next heaviest person on the team by - wait for it - around 35 pounds (she trains for a weightlifting team as well as dragon boat, so she is pure muscle)

    It is harder for me to go to practice each week than I would care to admit, stand there in tight paddle clothes and look at the suntanned bikini clad shapes of the other team members. Luckily I am strong, but I know the captain would appreciate a few extra pounds off the boat! This is my fifth season and I have gained around 30pds since I started. What the? everyone else looses weight doing this sport.

    Have decided to start Cambridge, as we go to a world championship (club) in four months and I do not want to waddle into the boat at this size.

    I have spent the last week cutting out carbs and alcohol - this is also harder for me to do than I care to admit! Much of the dragon boat team is about the social time, and I am one hell of a social director - but that also means mucho vino. I did sneak a fish finger tonight, and two small chocolates.

    Starting VLCD sole source tomorrow. Need a tonne of support to get a trim, slim me to the world club champs. (I am stoked to be in a qualifying team for a world club championship at my age/weight) My before picture to the counsellor is me in my paddle shirt.

    Welcome to CD and to the forum

    Hope that you are coping well with the plan and are feeling motivated

    You should be in ketosis now and it should be starting to get easier... is this the case ?
