I too ate for comfort, it became especially bad when my mum died nearly 8 years ago, she was the only person I could really talk to so I just sat and ate, anything and everything.
Well I am so fed up with sitting on the sidelines while my dh and ds`s have fun swimming and going on fair rides etc, I have put my foot down I want to live longer than my mum (age 51).
Im sure you will do fantastically with your weight loss, and I will be with you every step of the way..
Hi there Yorkie,
I think you are amazing anyway doing this so soon after everything you've been through. It's a new year and it's best to just look to the future. Don't worry about being the heaviest ever. Now that you have decided to do this you won't be this weight for long.
If I ever need inspiration go to Icemoose's blog he's been on a long journey. Even though it was the Cambridge diet I think they are very similar. I think you may find it at MyLighterLife . Correct me if I'm wrong Icemoose.
so far so good
had a choccie shake for breakfast
thai chilli soup for lunch
mushroom soup for tea
and I'm planning a hot shake this evening. First two were fine, not so keen on the mushroom but it was ok.
You'll find this site a huge help.
How you are able to pick yourself up after the twelve months that you have just had leaves me completely humble. What an incredible woman you are!
Lighterlife as you already know is fast and the results are dramatic! It creates little washing-up and is easy on the kitchen! Just think of all that extra time you'll have to clear up after your beautiful girls!
All the best for the next few days - I can remember how it dragged at the start, but the finish line is well within my sights now. You'll be there before you know it.
thanks for all the encouragement.
Yes it is true I have had a rough old year. My whole world fell apart, but now it is time for me to get things how I want them to be.
First of all it's LL, then tomorrow work is starting on my garden to make it more useable for my girls. Then in April I am having a loft extension. Once that is done I will have room for a craft room just for me. I am already finding crafting to be something to keep me going when in the past I would sit and eat for the sake of it in the evenings.
Just ignore people like that. It was probably left by someone who has never had a weight problem in their life so how would they possibly know how you feel.
I was told the same by a girl in our class (You dont look overweight!) I have 5 1/2 stone to loose so I know I am overweight.
And what sort of an example are we creating for our kids if we sit and stuff our faces. We are trying to encourage our kids to be fit and healthy and surely loosing the weight and been active and healthy is the best example you can set them for their journey into adulthood
I am on day 11 of lighterlife and so far I feel fantastic. My clothes are feeling loose and people have already commented on have I lost weight!
You go girl and ignore small minded people who really dont know what they are talking about
