I have spent the last week or two browsing, asking questions and slowly becoming more active on this board.

I have found the posts by many of you, answers to my questions, your support for each other and the general atmosphere on this LighterLife board amazing.

I know I am a while away from joining you all in understanding what you are going through - but all I can say is that I hope you all stick around long enough for me to share my story with you, for me to be supportive and understanding to yourselves and to join you bunch of merry losers ;)

All of your stories are inspirational to myself and I'm sure many like me. I have spent days reading your personal blogs and looking at your pictures - and each one I see or read invigorates my desire to head into this journey with 100%.

So, really, to you all I'd like to say thank you.

Flattery will get you everywhere !!

Hi Em
I know you've got to wait a while before you start in Jan, but your attitude will see you through. I see that you have started to think about the issues you said you didn't want to address yet.
By the time you start LL your head will be in the right place.
This is so much more than a diet .
Prepare to be amazed by yourself.
Everyone on here will continue to be supportive, you can be sure of that.
You'll do it. You've got the right attitude.
Good luck xxx:girlpower:

Em, I am only on my third week of CD, I too was inspired by the fantastic weighlosses and the support out there. If it wasnt for this site I would have given up by Day 3!
I post everyday usually around tea time and later on in the evening when my fingers want to roam in the fridge and cupboards.

Good Luck


Guess who's back...?

Hi Em!! I am so happy you found this forum - it really is a place that has become my virtual home over the last few months - and I am not going anywhere - I have about another three months to go on abstinence and then RTM etc... so if you ever need an ear to bend, I'd be more than happy to assist.

You do seem really fired up for starting and I have no doubt that you will do brilliantly :)

I totally agree, I am a newbie and have been on LL 5 days and the support is invaluable. I hope that I can be of as much help and tlc as everyone on here has already been to me!

I am sure you will do fantastically well- you are obviously ready for this and determination is the majority of the battle!
