    Bet that got your attention didn't it! :D

    Well, today I went to my doctors for my first smear test. I'm 26 so it's my first and I have been putting it off for a year. Well putting it off is wrong, it's just one of those things where every month my period comes and I think about booking it and then before I know it my period is here again. But last week I decided that it was irresponsible to let it drift any longer so made an appointment.

    It was awful! Not the smear test itself, that all went as expected. But it was the appointment with the nurse that was awful!

    I haven't been to the doctors for a long while, 3 years since my last check up she reckoned.

    The nurse was like a proper old school matron and was soo rude! I came out feeling about a third of an inch tall. She completely interogated me in front off all the other nurses about my weight and just would not let it go. Asking why I was overweight, what I was doing about it, why I hadn't done anything about it since my last visit?! I said that I had tried and that my weight went up and down, maybe more often up than I would like. Her reply was 'Well I can't see that your weight has gone down at all in the last 3 years', leaving me feeling pretty pathetic. Then to top it off, as I was leaving, she called to me across the waiting room (full of people) and said make sure you give losing some of that weight some thought!

    If I wasn't so mortified I would have made a complaint there and then!

    Afterwards I sat in my car feeling very sorry for myself, not being able to decide whether to cry or hit things with anger. I wasn't even sure whether I was angry at her, or angry at myself for putting myself in the position where people like her can treat me like that.

    So here I am once again, trying to decide whether CD is the route to go down? I've been here before many a time and I have tried every diet going, but don't stick to anything for long that a week.

    My problem is that I go hell for leather the first week, but I set the bar too high and I can't keep it up. Then when I binge...I really binge!

    I have got to go into the town tonight where my CD is based and pick up a parcel from the Royal Mail depot. So seeing as I have to drive past her house, do I drop in? Her appointments are Monday and Thursday evenings. Or do I spend the weekend getting into Ketosis and then if I get there, go and see her on the Monday. Bearing in mind I have about a weeks worth of products in the cupboard and the amount of times I haven't made it past day 2 is getting embarrassing.

    I started writing this at 10am, but work got in the way. How rude! So I am now back from lunch and I popped to Tesco and grabbed some cans of coke zero, chicken breasts and cottage cheese to prepare myself! I'm 1 litre and 2 coffees down the hatch, what do I do guys?!

    I am so fed up of being like this. But I'm also so fed up failing that I've lost the motivation to even keep trying. :sigh:

    My weigh in this morning was 114.2kg (18stone).

    Me too babe, I've tried and failed loads of times. I'm starting CD for the 3rd time next week.
    Start it with me. We can spur eachother on. We can do it this time.

    I'm usually perfect for 2 weeks then fall off the wagon and never get back on. I'm scared too but I have to try :)

    Lets take it one day at a time. I start on the 27th. Check in with me on the 28th and I'll check on you. I think for both of us planning for a long period is not the way to go.

    Good luck whatever your decision :)

    I think with your choice of purchases you have decided!

    I would say go and see your cdc today cut down on the carbs over the w/e and start with the packs on monday!

    I had a similar experience with a nurse at my practise a few years ago, when I went for a smear and contraception review. She told me I was too old and too fat to be on the pill any more!
    I was only on the pill because I had had a bad experience with my previous contraception not through choice. She refused to give me another prescription and insisted I make an apt with a Dr to discuss alternative options!
    What ever it is that gives you the push to lose weight it is in the long run a good thing, you obviously want to or you would have jumped into a cream cake to make yourself feel better! It looks like this could be the right time.

    I wish you all the best for your journey and just remember when you are lovely and slim the nurse will still be a hurtful inconsiderate moo!

    Best Wishes
    Cheryl

    I like this very much! :) It's true.

    Yes, have tried SW before, did very well on it once, losing about 3 stone, but that crept back on again over a few years. I am actually in the middle of a countdown at the minute, week 5 of 12. My first week I lost 10lbs, following low carb and lots of free food. But then week 2 I gained, so wimped out of weigh in and told myself I'd lose it again for next weeks weigh in, but didn't and haven't been back!

    I'm always happy to have diet buddies! And I think you are completely right, I can't focus long term. I have so far to go that it just makes it feel impossible. At the minute I just want to get into the 16's again!

    Haha I just want to see the 17s at first! :)

    My downfall is when people say to me "oh you've done so well, you have to have a break sometimes, go on once night isn't going to hurt"

    And I think "no no, I can't" but all to easily I give in and agree yes I DO deserve a treat I have been so good, I'll start again tomorrow.

    Except I binge feel terrible, half heartedly start again the next day, then think one more day won't hurt and so on until I've gained back everything + a stone more.

    I know my patteren. I haven't come up with a way to make sure that doesn't happen again yet. I think everytime I'm tempted I need to sign into minimins on my phone and read until I've got my will power back! I didn't know about this place last time so I'm hoping it might be the difference I need.

    Socialising and peer pressure is definately where I go off track, and its unlikely I will spend the next 8 months in a cave in the wilderness so I need to keep telling myself noone else I know is as big as me and what do they know!

    I tell myself that when I am their size, then I will let myself have the same treats. Thing is, that I see my slim, active friends gorging on yummy things and feel jealous, but what I don't see is them eating a lot less than me for the rest of the week.

    Like the other day, I popped into a friends and they were having bacon sandwiches for dinner. Did I want one? Yes please! And I sat there eating the white bread, with butter and ketchup, bacon and fried egg sandwich wondering why if they can eat like this, I can't. But the thing is...they only had 1 sandwich, I would have had two and probably had another piece of bread and butter while the bacon was cooking!

    LOL! Ditto.
    I haven't quite grasped the concept that if its daily or hourly it doesn't count as a treat! Its just my eating habits.

    Well I did it! I went to see my CDC. Lucky I did too as she is on holiday next week, so it'll be a fortnight till my first weigh in.

    I didn't weigh, it was a flying visit. To be honest I don't think she expects to see me again, been here too many times before. I just grabbed my goodies, handed over my cash and flew off again.

    I've decided to do the 1000 plan. 2 shakes and a meal, that way I can still eat something! Not sure whether I will be able to maintain ketosis though? Anybody done the 1000 plan and stayed in ketosis? Need to do some research on what I am allowed, portion sizes etc.

    Today I have had 3 x cheesestrings, 100 grams of Tesco Piri Piri chicken and 100 grams of cottage cheese. Plus lots and lots of coffee, so I'm guessing 400mls of semi skimmed milk.

    3 x cheesestrings = 180kcals
    Piri Piri Chicken = 135kcals
    Cottage Cheese = 80 kcals

    Maple & Pecan Porridge = 143 kcals

    Semi skimmed milk = 200kcals

    It's a bit late in the day to be having another shake. But I guess that means that actually, although a little bit unorganised, I was 100%. Going to treat myself to a can of coke zero in a bit!

    I'm so pleased I didn't weigh with my CDC, because that means I don't know what I would of weighed so can't count down the lbs and get scale obsessed.

    Here's to kicking things off properly tomorrow!

    Morning, morning, morning!!!

    Day 2 and hoping that I won't suffer like I would on a CD SS day 2. I am so thirsty! I've just necked the best part of a litre and just tucking into my first coffee of the day. I can feel a headache brewing, so I am hoping lots of water will help it pass.

    I forgot to bring a porridge in with me...boo! But it's ok as I've got chicken and cottage cheese in the fridge at work. So that's lunch sorted. Will have a soup and porridge combo for tea or something.

    Here's hoping that everyone else had a fantastic day, it's nearly the weekend!

    The headache is staying away, not sure whether thats because I have been nibbling at the chicken and cottage cheese or because I've been drinking enough? Possibly a bit of both.

    So far:

    200gs of chicken - 270 kcals
    200gs of cottage cheese - 160 kcals
    200mls of semi-skimmed milk - 100kcals

    Planned for later:

    2 x CD Porridge - 288 kcals
    200mls semi-skimmed milk - 100kcals
    1 x Cheesestring - 69kcals

    Totalling 987 kcals - job well done I think! Just got to avoid the bottle of Pear Magners sat in my fridge nicely chilled!

    Do you think I am putting too many kcals into my milk? My coffee keeps me going through the day.

    OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!
    That is utterly disgusting.Right now the first thing you must do is call to complain and then write a letter of complaint.Overweight or not,no one deserves to be treated like that. It is absolutely appauling behavior.I speak from experience,although admittedly not as horrific as this.I made a complaint and the doctor called me back to apologise.
    What a horrible woman!! Please please make a complaint,she shouldn't be allowed to get away with this!
    Re your diet hun,you need to get in the zone,have a realistic goal to aim for and just go for it.Use all your strength that you have to get through it.I've had a sh*t few months/weeks and am proud that I have stuck to the diet 100%.You can do it you really can.But say to yourself it is the last time you will do it.Do it for yourself.You can do it.
