I got really fat...

Like...REALLY overweight for me.

I have never been small. I have always cycled back and forth between 11st and 12st7lb. For the keen-eyed people (anyone?) reading this, you will notice that, even at my lowest, my BMI is still not within 'healthy range' for my 5ft3in frame. I am muscular, or 'well-built' as my mother insisted on telling me when I was growing up, and I am quite happy at a comfortable size 12. So what happened!? Food, alcohol and depression happened!

I now buy a size 16; I take no joy in shopping; and I barely look at myself in the mirror anymore. I never leave the house, apart from going to work, and I just don't socialise. I am only 30 years old, and I am living like a 80 year-old hermit. This 👏 has 👏 got👏 to 👏 stop! I am wasting my youth and my life.

Today is DAY 1 of my weight-loss journey. My first hammer of choice is Cambridge Weight Plan. Once I have enough pounds of fat chiselled off, I will switch to a low sugar/high protein diet, which is ideal for people like me with poly-cystic ovarian syndrome.

I have two mini goals over the next 5 weeks. In 3 weeks, I am meeting friends that I have not seen in 2 years, and I want to be a stone lighter when I see them. Then, at the end of September, my husband and I are going to Paris for our anniversary. I want to be a stone and a half lighter for my trip. If I can hit these goals, then I think I will have the motivation to hit my overall goal of being 11st by Christmas.

Let's lose some weight beech!

Little Red -

There'll be some CD folk along later. Don't go far from a toilet this week!

I've just seen your post CD plan. We've got a few people here eating low carb or keto - so you'll have our company then.

Hey! Goodluck on your journey. I have a loooong way to go until I am at goal. I cant decide if I am going to do 1:1 CWP until goal or if I will switch before goal. After CWP, I think I am going to do WHOLE30 challenge and then a liberal version of paleo with the occasional dairy and grains depending on how well I tolerate them.

Intermittent fasting - there's some info on it on the new keto thread.

Hello Little Red! Well done for getting started. Cambridge diet is great for fast results. I’m sure you’ll get that stone off by the time of your reunion with your friends. I’m a couple of months in on Cambridge and lost a stone in week 1. When’s your first weigh in?
