:DHi All!

I am Elle & I am very overweight- 16st 5 & 1/4 :cry:
I have never weighed this much in my life before and I feel like a heffalump!

The reason I am starting the CD is for 2 reasons......

:) I am 30 in Feb next year I want to look AMAZING and I want to look at the pictures and LIKE what I see for once without asking my friends to delete the pictures!

:) Me & my OH want to try for Children next year (after I have got V drunk on my 30th of course) so I figured the healthier I am the more chance of conceiving we will have!

At the moment I am embarassed about the way I look and dont like going out of the house to see people I havent seen for a while as I dont want them to go "oh my god look how much weight she has put on!"
This isnt the right way to live so I am doing something about it!

I have never been so determined about a diet and I am planning to do the SS for the 1st 4 weeks then see how I am getting on. My OH is in the RAF & is going away on Monday for 4 weeks so I have a clear month ahead of me and have pre-warned all my friends and family that I am doing it so they cant sabotage me!!;)

Blimey thats an epic post! Sorry!

I have been lurking here for the past week so I am already really inspired by you all but what are your top tips for me??!!

Good Luck Elle.

I was desperate to start and now I am on day 2 and I think that wanting it so bad has made it a bit easier... so far...

You will do it!!! can't wait to see the before and after pictures!

Hiya. My hubby is also forces (Army) and is currently away for 6 months. I haven't told him I am doing this so truly can't wait for him to come home on R&R and notice a difference in me.
I am on day 11 and so far so good, no side effects, no picking, no real hunger. I feel very determined to do this for so may different reasons, and I think this is why I am finding is so easy at the mo.
Good luck, I'm sure you'll find it a fabulous journey.

Hi All

Well here I am on Day 1 and so far so good. Had a Strawberry shake for Bkfast which was lovely and have had almost 1.5litres of water already. I actually feel better already for it!

My Man has left this morning on his month long detachment so thats me 100% till the 7th of August when he gets back! I will see where I am when he gets back and review it - although I would like to try and lose as much as possible and maybe stick to SS for 2 months?

Anyone managed this?!

Hope your all doing OK today?!:p

Hi Ellen,

Glad to hear your first day is going ok. You might feel a bit of a struggle when day 3-4 arrives but just remember why you are doing this.

I was on SS for 6 weeks before I had to stop but could have easily gone on. Some people have been SSing for months and months.

You'lle be absolutely fine and will get used to not eating. Just wait until ketosis kicks in and you'll be flying!!

Good luck :D
