no your not loopy
jusy all the emotions we get when trying something we have never done before

food is our everyday part of life and when you think you wont be having any its a shock to the brain

you`ll only fail if you let your brain win the battle
1st week is the hardest then it gets easier
for inspiration check out the before and after pics
i bet they to were scared at the begining but with support from here they got there

i remember writing near enough those same words in 2005.

i liekened it to i was going on this unknown journey, backpacking around the wrold.

diddnt know where my journey would take me, or where i would end up or even if i would like the place when i got there.

i was scared of going out of my comfort zone. my comfort was was food. to face weeks of not eating was terriffying. but i cut the whole big journey into little bus rides.

i was scared of failing. or rather scared of admitting i had failed..i would probably make another excuse instead of admit i had failed.

and i was scared of becoming thin and possibly attractive again. i was in my little bubble of feeling fat and frumpy.. and to take that bubble away was like OMG. will i still me me?

its perfectly normal, all these weird thoughts and feelings. its aknowledging that some thing big is about to change in your life. once you start losing weight many other things coincide with the weightloss. because you do 'change' in one way or another.

its an exciting time for you now. the journey is just beginning

as my oledmum used to say ' the world is your oyster.


Fed up of being fat
Im sure you will do great, just think about all the smaller size clothes and nice undies you will be buying not long from now, plus how much more confident you are going to feel going out with your mates on a night out ..... thats what I keep thinking about.

I did originally start the ss yesterday but as the day went on, especially after my shocking experience with the oriental soup, decided that rather than continue with ss (and having a feeling I would buckle and didnt want to tempt that) I have gone onto the 790 plan for now to get me started.
You will be fine....
We all get those scary moments...
I am scared of what sort of person I will be as I have always been fat.. I wonder if it will change my personality...
Just remember that you don't like being fat and keep thinking about how horrid you feel when you are fat, then try to imagine how comfortable you will feel when you are slim...
I was really scared for a few days running up to the "big day" last week. My whole life has, until now, revolved around food and wine. I felt like I was planning to end my life, that I was giving up everything that made me me :cry: I was bad tempered and irritable, and inside just terrified.

But I've done it, and a week on I'm beginning to realise that, actually, there is a lot more to life than food and wine. I still miss it, but it doesn't identify me any more. To be honest, I feel like I've been set free from the heavy burden of food.:bliss:
i know ill be ok after the 1st 2 weeks when i can have bars and flavouring but the 1st 2 weeks is going to be very hard for me having nothing to chew!
