Im not new to VLCD's by a long shot, first time i tried one was about 10 years ago with LighterLife! I lost 2 dress sizes, very fast but didn't stick to it and reach goal, ever since i have tried over and over again, never for longer than 3 weeks with different VLCD diet including slim and save roughly a year n half between eachother..... I guess i was never really ready and my selfsabotage is STRONG - i am such an all or nothing person and even thinking about cheating would make me feel guilty - silly moo.
I am now at my heaviest that I have weighed myself at (i have been bigger but i hid from the scales) currently 22st10lbs and I my Goal is 11st5lb by this time next summer.
I started on sunday just gone and have decided to weigh in every 3 weeks to record my progress as otherwise it messes with my head. I just want to focus one day a time and not think about how much is coming off and how fast. I know the diet works and as long as I keep going this time and dont give up if i 'cheat' and just be more loving of myself I will do it, the weight will fall off and I will reach my goal.
I just really dont want weight to be an issue anymore, holding me back from what i want to be doing - for example - HANDSTANDS! I have never done one and I really want to! I want to do yoga without my fat getting in the way of progress - eg not being able to cross my legs coz here is just too much thigh in the way.
I have never been a healthy weight, and I am done being the big girl. Looking forward to this journey, i know its gonna be emotional. I've been watching alot of videos on youtube that have really helped me get in a good mindset and face reality.
p.s. Lawrence B, a cambridge diet counsellor, has a great youtube page called dual dynamics. He is soo inspiring and so real and straight to the point. I love it - when i started on sunday i said i wasnt going to weigh myself for a good while - but after watching his videos I took his advice and stopped being silly. I have to be 100% real with myself, clear about what i want and committed to achieving it no matter what. I highly recommend his page if anyone wants a lil boost in motivation/focus.
so happy to be here - havent tried writing a diary before - muchos love to you all
