Well it has been a roller coaster but today well 5 mins ago really I have just realised I have 5lb to go before I start up the plans omg:eek:

I have to say the hard times constipation runs hair loss dizzy hunger has all been the worst .Would I recomend it to anyone I most definatley would it has to be the best thing I have done on the weight loss journey every inconvenience has got a better plus and may even look into becoming a cdc .

Well 5lb to go I could be on ss+ next week and that seems sooooo scary .Will be taking it very slow ease myself back into food have been researching plans for maintaining for life so fingers crossed.I think I am about to venture into the really hard part of any diet so maybe some more tears to come .

Thank you to everyone for there support and for the laughs will be needing loads more of both.

if you are just starting on this journey get your head in the right place and get through the first week that first WI is the biggest motivation .Set yourself mini targets ones that you can get in just a week or 2 and ones that take 4 to 6 weeks that way you are always reaching a goal this so helped me .I hate to lose lol.

Have hopefully add a pic taken today if it works would like to post a before one too but dont know how will fiddle for a while may get there lol xxxxxxx
