Hi Everyone.

I have been overweight for as long as I can remember and have been on every single diet on this planet but always gave up.

Over the years I have gotten bigger and bigger and although believe it or not, I am not at my heaviest right now, I am pretty close.

I know the CD works, I have done it in the past but the longest run was for my first time when I lasted eight weeks. That was seven years ago and every time I have tried it since I didn't make it past the first week :eek:

I really want to do it this time. I'm off on holiday at the end of August and there will be a pool and beach etc and I do not want to stand at the sidelines again while the children and DH enjoy themselves. I want to be there with them having fun and not worrying so much about my weight or thinking that every single person is looking at me with disgust.

I know I will still be overweight come August, but the boost to my self esteem and the fact that a few stone really makes a difference will make things much easier for me.

So, here I am. I really really hope I can make it past day one. It's 4pm and so far so good (although the thought of throwing in the towel and starting again tomorrow has crossed my mind, which it ALWAYS does) this time I will stick it out.

I am going to start a diary on here in the hope that it will spur me on and keep me on track.

Oh will you look at me rambling on (there's a few minutes of your life you'll never get back eh? lol)

I reckon this place will really help keep me on track!

:)

Hi Felix and Fearless.

We aren't going abroad (taking small people abroad is way too much hassle lol) but we're off down country for a (flipping expensive!) week away.

The place has a pool and is on a beach and has lots of facilities gym and healthclub etc so I really want to avoid waddling around the place if I can!

Fearless, it is a great incentive indeed, right now the thought of getting my kit off is bringing me out into a cold sweat! There's nothing like fear to kick your ass into gear eh? lol

Sounds great!! I would love to get away somewhere :) my sister has just moved to Bournemouth so I hope me and my OH can go and visit over the summer (will be a very long drive from up north though!!)

How much have you got to lose? If you don't mind me asking of course!

I don't mind at all, you will see in my stats that I have tonnes to lose :eek:

My (possibly slightly optimistic) goal for the end of Aug is 55lbs which is probably about half of what I want to lose.

Eek!! lol

We used to live in the Toon (lol) so I have an idea of how far Bournemouth is, car travel can be fun though and it would be nice to just getaway, if you go I bet you would have a great time :)

I think you will get pretty close even if you don't hit 55lb! Sorry I can't see your stats cos I'm using this silly iPhone app haha.

Where abouts are you from? My OH is from Newcastle and I reckon it's far travelling from Leeds up there to visit his family never mind going from Newcastle to Bournemouth! Haha!

Another returner saying hi

Hullo there, I lost 8 stone on LL 4 years ago and have had a couple of short-lived attempts since (one for 10 weeks in 2009 and I barely lasted 2 weeks last year!) I'm almost at the end of my 9th week which is the longest I've been 100% since the first time around...so I wish you a similar success!
