    After a long time and a lot of saying i'll start tomorrow, this is the first day of my restart. It gets me so annoyed to think I could have been happy with myself by now if I'd just carried on with the diet in the first place.

    I'm the heaviest i've ever been - more than a stone heavier than when I started CD for the first time. I haven't been on here for a long time but I'm sure i'll recognise a few of you at least.

    I need to lose at least 7 stone, it's a really daunting thought but I know how quickly it can drop off. I need to do it as at the moment I don't feel like I really have a life, I don't want to go out. Except for going to work I hardly go out as I feel so self conscious, even going in to the bank I feel horrible.

    Sorry for the long post. Hello to everyone and i'm sure i'll be on here lots to distract myself and hear other peoples losses! :)

    Welcome back and best of luck with your restart.

    Try not to think of the 7 stone as it can be overwhelming...much easier to break it down into mini goals.

    Hi

    I feel exactly the same, in fact I could of wrote that word for word. Back in 2008, I surpassed my goal on CD by losing 7 stones and getting to the lowest weight that I have ever been in my adult life. Unfortunately, Im very ashmaed to say that it has all come back on again. Yes, all of it :eek:!! And I have kept saying "I'll restart tomorrow" but "tomorrow" never came, or I'll have my breakfast shake and then something will go wrong in the day and I'll start eating (emotional eating.)

    Hopefully, I will be re-starting tomorrow (Thursday 23 Sept) and my goal too is to lose 7 stones again. I keep thinking to myself I have done it once, I can do it again.

    So, best of luck on your restart. Hopefully I will get past my Day 1 of my restart tomorrow. Its gonna be hard, but Im sure both of us will get there.

    hello all you restarters :D

    im also a restarter and im really not bragging but hoping to inspire, iv just completed my first week on ss totally 100% and i lost 12lbs!!!
    i have 9 stone to lose having previously lost 3 which i gained back, i felt like a complete failure-but after a lot of soul searching i decided that iv not failed-iv only failed when i give up trying!
    i learnt a lesson each and every time iv picked up cambridge and 'failed' so this time i believe im stonger and far more capable of staying on plan!
    i hope this has helped in some way, and good luck to all of you!! xx
