    Hello, I'm new around here. I think I shall be spending an awful lot of time on here in the next few months and so I am asking for your help and support in advance.

    So anyway, an introduction. :wave_cry:

    I'm 28 years old and have four cats :D, a horse, a labrador and a husband. I'm always freezing cold (and have a slight twilight obsession hence the username for those of you that have read the books) and if I remember correctly, I shall be even more cold soon.

    I lost weight with CD in 2007 and found the whole process very empowering and went from shrinking wallflower to a confident person for the first time in my life. I got married wearing a size 10 dress and felt beautiful and worthy of marrying my handsome husband.

    I maintained for 18months ish by going to the the gym, running, riding my horse and being reasonably careful with what I was eating.

    And then it all went wrong....:break_diet:

    I got a new job, moved house, started working 100 hours a week (not joking), was tired, skint, stressed, my husband got his dream job 150miles away. So I turned to haagen dazs and kettle chips (not together I may add)....... :rolleyes:

    So, here I am. Three and a half stones heavier than my happy weight. I hate feeling this way; no clothes seem to fit right or look nice, my face looks bloated and spotty, I'm permanently exhausted and I feel uncomfy and smothered by this horrid fat that is engulfing me. :( The other day at work someone said something about me being a 'bigger girl' and that just doesn't feel like me.

    I now have a much better job (good working hours for a change) and my husband and I are living in our dream house in the countryside. So mentally, now I'm in as good a place as any to start my second(and final) CD journey.

    Is anyone else starting now? I go to meet my CDC tomorrow so officially start on wednesday. Get in touch and we can support each other.

    yay, so many nice people on here.

    I can't wait to get started, just wish I could fast forwards into ketosis. Last time I felt ok on day 1 and 2 as I kept busy, day 3 I felt horrid and headachey and bleurgh. And day 4 I woke up before my alarm clock raring to go, full of energy.

    I am working on friday (will be my day 3) so will be busy all day, and then I plan on being on here lots in the evening, and then have an early night when the temptation starts!

    Last time, once I got into ketosis I was flying. I felt kind of euphoric, full of energy, loved the compliments and enjoyed going shopping for new skinny clothes.

    I remember staying the same for a couple of weeks after losing 2 stone (after about 6weeks) but I stuck with it and eventually the scales reflected what my tape measure was telling me.

    I'm so excited! You are all such a nice supportive bunch, and also really inspiring. Three cheers for minimins!
