    Good morning everyone :) just been Reading some of your weight loss diaries...what an inspiration!!! So here I go and I'll attempt to do the same.

    I'm lea, 28 years old and have been overweight FOREVER!! I've always been on a diet...tried weightwatchers, slimming world and simple old healthy eating. It's worked in the past but I'm impatient and want results NOW!

    I've done CD earlier in the year and lost 21lbs in a month but then I went to Glastonbury and went to weddings and just generally had a good summer! I couldn't afford the diet any more and thought I could diet on my own...big mistake....back to square one!

    My biggest weight ever was 15 stone 9 and I lost some weight myself before I decided I wanted bigger losses...so here I am!

    Reasons for doing this......
    I've had a rly crap cpl of years and this year should have been my year but didn't really end up being!! I've had depression and think one of the reasons was cos I got so unhappy with my weight....and cos I hated the way I looked I stopped going out, I didn't want ppl to see me...then being so bored and lonely made me worse! I feel much better now but the pounds started creeping back on so I know it's time to return onto the best diet EVER and get back all those happy feelings.

    Today I start a new job.until Friday I was a dietetic assistant....helping ppl lose weight can u believe? But it meant talking about food all day every day and eating with dietitians all the time. I found myself scared to tell them I was doing CD so gave in all the time! Had to get out of there and so I have!! Today I start as a support worker for ppl with learning disabilities! Know I'm gonna love it and think I'm gonna do rly well on the diet cos I'll be more busy and active every day!

    So here I go....day one.
    Weight 14 stone 7

    Dress size 16 bottoms
    (extremely snug and rly I should be thinking of biting the bullet and buying 18s but I I refuse!)
    Size 16 top
    Gotta do it this time cos my fiancé is paying....he saw how much happier I was when I was shedding the pounds ...do need to make him proud!

    Only prob is, cos I've put off starting, I'm getting weighed THURSDAY so only have 3 days but after that I b more regular.

    SS here I come....good luck everyone and thank you for your inspirations!! X

    Well day 3 almost over!!!
    Ive managed and so far really feel fine :)
    I've even been to zumba tonight, I go every week but feel like I had loads more energy tonight...prob cos usually when I go I'm bloated n av stuffed my face with crap beforehand kidding myself I need the extra energy!

    So my first proper exercise since starting ss and I feel ok...slightly more light headed than usual but I did it!! And I get weighed in the morning but as I've only done 3 days I ain't holding my breath

    At least I've proved to myself I CAN get back on the wagon, and know that next week I'm gonna have a big loss no matter what!!

    Keep you posted :) xxx

    Good morning day 4 I've not been looking forward to seeing u!!!
    I remember when I did this last time day 4 was my worst day....headaches, dizziness etc. But today I'm going to be positive especially as Im off to see my CDC in TWO HOURS!!
    I don't know what the outcome will be. I was SUPPOSED to start last Friday but gave it up as a bad job and started Monday. Aw well.

    Problem is, cos I'm getting weighed soon I'm scared to drink too much water this morning but I'm thirsty....how pathetic!!

    What do others do? Anyone have any strange little weigh day rituals? :)

    Wooohoooooooo
    Lost SIX pounds this week :) I can't believe it!! RESULT!!

    Was also talking to my CDC about how I can become a consultant. Have to have a BMI of 28 so she said I got bout a stone and a half to go. Gonna try and get that off before January....imagine how many people go on diets in January....
    It's a big incentive to do well over Xmas :)

    I loved my last support work job but this one just felt wrong as soon as I walked in....I didn't feel right in there. I've actually left already cos it wasn't for me. I have enough part time work to tide me over til after Xmas so just looking for something full time now. I'm reporting the place to the authorities cos I actually think they need a serious inspection and talking to. I'm not afraid of hard work....i'll get ma hands dirty and do anything I have to...but some of the things i saw in the home made me not wanna be a part of it.

    Looking for more support work tho if u hear anything ;-) haha xx

    Oh that's a shame and yes report them. If you find the right place it's the best job isn't it?!
    I get to take my guys skating, swimming, cinima, meals all sorts, not like work at all!

    Ha, as for a job... Where are you? If your near ascot way there's loads of work!
