    so here i go again did the cd diet 4 years ago lost 4 stone and managed to keep it within a stone limit up and down for 3 years which was great i got married last year to my lovely partner of 12 years and i find my self 2 stone heavier now !!!!!! losing a stone is hard enough losing 2 stone feels impossible !!!!! so friday i started exante same kind of thing just im in a bit more control this time round im going to lose a bit more in hope that the stone i will gain and lose ( im realaistic )will mean i hopefully will stay at my lowest weight i got to last time :).... im going to be a bit more realistic this time i know i will eat when i go out on functions this time of year i will have a few to go to but stay true to the total diet inbetween these occasions xmas is round the corner and i will be eating my xmas dinner lets hope i can stay focused to the end cause the reason im doing this folkes well at the ripe age of 36 im am going abroad for the first time next year on my hols and i may not look great in a bikini but i sure as hell want the chance to put one on :)........day 3 is today i weighed myself which i shouldnt of and i have only lost 2lb so far last time i did this i was 4lb off by today was a bit gutted but i was heavier back then so maybe thats why will keep my weigh ins to once a week..... i must say that i was dreaming of food last night i remember doing this last time so crazy how your brain works when you sleep lol well wish me luck as i wish you all too xx

    why are the weekends the hardest on this diet it was the same last time i did this while at work in the week i feel fine i guess its cause im busy with work then running round after the kids when i get home so far i have cleared all the washing cooked the family dinner done all the housework today...... mmmm what to do next normally i woulde be watching tv with the munchies to hand i guess thats why i have gained 2 stone lol..... so writting on here and looking at all the posts has kept me busy for a while and given me some great motivation you have all done so well :) i just have to keep reminding myself i can do this i have done it before and even though its 4 stone i want to lose again its only 2 stone to be back where i got to before so thats my firsts goal get back to 11 1/2 stone :)

    Thats great, just had a read through your diary, i know what you mean about cooking for family, torture! It's getting easier each day though, and making me think more about what they eat too which can only be a good thing. Keep it up!

    2nd weekend on the diet been really busy today and feeling cold and tired now....... brought some cans of coke zero today while food shopping as my little treats i know they are allowed but if i count them as a treat im not looking for something else as a treat...............................the last time i did this diet was the winter too i forgot how cold i felt then i will have a coffee in a min to warm up im a cold arse anyway to be fair i get cold in the heat of summer i told mark i would be taking a hoody to turkey next year just in case and he rolled on the floor laughing at me how rude lol ............................ i got up this morning and actually felt slimmer i dont know why maybe it was the big wee i had first thing :)..... i have only lost 7lb so i know its not enough to really show at the moment but it felt really good to feel a little smaller.................... oh and can you believe my mum bless her heart has just brought round two big plates of baking cheese straws, cheese scones, fruit scones and lemon drizzle cake arhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh i just smiled and thanked her i said the kids would be pleased and mark of course but IM NOT i will be putting all that out of sight pretty soon once thay have all stopped picking at it.... my mum is an absolute darling and supporting me on this diet not telling me its stupid or not safe like a lot of people do, she just didnt think about how hard the smell of all those goodies would be too me :( ................................. time to get that coffee i think fingers are now frozen so thats enough from me for today

    didnt come on here yesterday was still feeling tired had such a busy weekend was in bed by 7.00 last night although i feel full of energy on this diet im sure i over did it this weekend at least the days went quick so i wasnt tempted by anything .................. so i have been thinking all day about the leaving meal im am going to on saturday i dont want to come off ts at the moment but im sure i will want a few drinks while im out with all the girls so my decision is i will have 2 shakes in the day then while im out a chicken salad to line my stomach and a few vodka and diet cokes i think this is my best option i will be dancing my arse off i expect as thats a norm for us lot so hopefully i will be able to work off some of the extra cals i have that night if i go straight back to ts the next day im hoping this wont do too much harm its only one night, i did say i wont be as strict this time im not missing out on the few nights out i have planned for the next few months......... so now that decesion has been made i can get on with this week i have to say so far its not been too bad today busy at work so just got on with it drank loads today too which is good as i really didnt drink much at all yesterday so back on the toilet again all day today the joys lol ..................... roll on friday for 2nd week wi fingers crossed for a good one roll on friday :)
