    Hi guys, I joined minimins ages ago but don't post, just read lots! I have been trying to get to grips with CD for so long it is embarassing.:eek: BUT, I have had enough. I have gained 4 stone in a year through comfort eating with depression, but am feeling better now. I am going to begin ss tomorrow, no excuses, no ifs and buts, no more stuffing my face like there is no tomorrow. Quite simply, I don't want to die early from some obesity related illness and leave my three daughters without a mum. I have to do this, I have to cure my addiction to food. I know that you are a supportive lot and there are so many success stories. When I read the blog by icemouse it made me cry and really think. I can and I will succeed at this. :)

    So tomorrow is the day huh? This time you have your head in the right place?

    Good

    So think about the things that went wrong before and what will you do to stop it happening again. Plan ahead. Think of the positives. Not just about how much longer you're going to live but the positives that you will find almost immediately.

    You know the first few days can be tough. Remember it gets better after that.

    Post lots and let us know how you're doing :)

    Wow what has taken you so long to post, once you post you wont be able to stop.....Everytime you feel low or that you are getting cravings come online and chat away. There is always someone around and as we are all in the same boat can sympathise with each other.
    I started at a huge 25st 5lbs and thought that it would take forever to get the weight off. But it is amazing and coming off quickly and steadily.

    We are all here with you hun, be strong and keep posting. If you like I am on msn you can find my addy in my profile or you can pm if you need to. I am online quite a bit.
    Dont feel alone, we all want to help......!

    Hi Lindy, tomorrow is my big day, or at least I think it is! am meeting a CDC for the first time.....am nervous but need to do it.....I too have battled with depression, and told myself it was stupid to diet when on medication,
    I have but on 3 stone in the past few years, it is the thing that is pulling me down....I am horrified if people I knew from a few years back, see me....what will they think....I truly think you can do it and will keep looking out for updates... its time for me to address this weight problem, am a little nervous, but like you, with this site and all the support it gives, I will give it ago....all the best to you:) Jay
