I am just a big failure... I am my worst enemy :(


Silver Member
Hello everyone :cry:

Well, I'm back, after ruining all my efforts and deserting Minimins out of shame :( . It took me a week to find the courage to come back on here, and this for several reasons:

1) I am ashamed because I have wasted everyone's time: all these lovely people who took the time to write to me and to give me advice :(

2) I am ashamed because I met lovely people on here: rach1974, loved-up (to name but a few) etc, and I left the forum without any explanations, and it was so rude, and the reaction of a coward :cry: And for this I am sorry too girls, if you are still on Minimins :cry:

3) I am ashamed because I disgust myself: so little self esteem and self control :(. And I know I am not the first person to fell off the wagon, but I have received so much love and help from everyone, on Minimins and in real life :(

I want to start from the beginning again, having stupidly gain back all the weight I had lost last year :cry:

Oh my, you know what made me realise that I had to come back here and get myself motivated to lose weight? Well, a year ago, I was so happy, so much thinner, so excited and full of hope :(

So if you want me back, I'd be really happy :wave_cry:

I still want to do CD as, for some reason, this is the only diet that has ever worked for me. Even the weight gain was not caused by stopping the diet, as I stopped quite a while ago and did not put the weight back on immediately, as I was eating very sensibly. I then had some little problems and I ate like there was no tomorrow :break_diet: . But I believe this is te best diet for me. I have to say my CDC has been fantastic and so understanding, as she was texting me and emailing me even when I was not doing the diet: and I feel like I don't deserve such kindness, because I always ruin everything :(

You will probably think while reading this message that I am in a terrible state of mind, depressive, etc, but I actually am not. I am happy, the srping's back, I've lots of project, I am so happy with my boyfriend, etc: so go figure :rolleyes:

As usual, I think I will be writing quite a lot. For some strange reason, writing about what I feel and having people read about this really helps me :) . And Minimins is so great for this :)

Speak to you later, I will start browsing the forum again, especially the inspiration threads :)

Thank you for reading.

Thanks Chompster, it is really nice of you :)

I've started reading some stories, and it really helps with motivating me :)

Tomorrow, I clean the cupboards of all the junk (and the boyfriend will have to hide his junkfood :D )

Hi Elie, how are you? Well done for drawing a line under the bad times and getting on track. Good luck with your weightloss x

Hello girls!

Yep I'm fine, thanks :D

This is what's great with me, I never stay depressed for too long :D

I have not been eating any carbs at all for 3 days now, and I'm holding on: it should help the transition to CD :D

More news to come!



Gold Member
I remember you :) It's hard coming back, I did it myself in January...

All the best for your restart, we'll do it this time :D xxxxxx
Dont look at it as failure or something to be ashamed of, see it as guidance as what not to do.

Get back on it with more determination and motivation, to achieve all your goals, be positive.

There is no point going back on where you went wrong, its done, its over.

Most of all, dont torture yourself over it, tomorrow is another day.
Hi I'm new here so don't know you from last year but what has happened is in the past, you have come back on here for help and support and I'm sure that is what you will get.
I look forward to chatting and congratulating you on all your wight loss you have to come.

Nic xx

Aww guys, you're all so nice :D

I'm holding onto the "no carb" pre diet at the moment, although I have to confess that this is REALLY hard :8855:

At least, now I know how quickly and efficiently CD works, so I will fight even harder :D

I don't know if I'll weigh myself this month though... It's incredibly tempting, but I'm a scale hopper :confused:. I think I'll wait for at least a fortnight and then see how much I have lost :)

It's all about trusting myself :D

Good night everyone :)

Hi Elie glad your feeling better, also i think the pre CD low carb is a very good idea as it makes it that bit easier when starting CD. x
Elie darling...

You haven't done anything wrong, you've just hit a bump in the road.

I'm so glad you found the courage to come back, and I will be with you each and every step of the way.

much love to you



Silver Member
Thanks Rach, and hello everyone!:D

the "no carb" preparation is going fine, although I am dreaming of pasta now ;)

I'm trying to get busy with things around the flat to avoid thinking about food!!!!

Hope you're all ok.
I dont think we've met before but didnt want to read and run. I dont think you ave ny reason to be ashamed tho i can really understand why you do cos i feel like that sometimes, just that feeling of not liking yourself, having no self control and undoing all your own hard work, have been there and still 'visit' sometimes.

but the fact that you are feeling good now is fantastic, go with that feeling, have a fresh start, we are all entitled to that. No it isnt going to be easy, anything worthwhile often isnt, but you can do this, you've done it before. the only way to guarantee failure is not to even try.

so a big welcome back, and please feel good about yourself again, cos we are all worth it
