    Here I am at 3.31am after doing quite a bit of soul searching - I am fed up with myself for not giving this diet my all. Dont get me wrong I have had good results so far but not as good as last time round and I know the reason is because I am not doing this 100%. As of now it is 100% all the way for me - I am fed up with little bits here and there, I need to get my big bum into gear and get exercising. I want to lose weight, I want to be skinny and I AM going to get there. So tomorrow is a new day - from now onwards its 100% for me all the way and some exercising at least 4 times per week. I get the feeling that its quite slack on here at the moment and I for one am going to make the step and get back to my previous achievements of 4-5lbs per week, and if I dont want saggy skin then I need to get exercising and toning. At the end of the day its up to me!! I have written out some daily challenge sheets for myself and this is it now. I am working towards my goal 24/7 instead of 22/7. Come on everyone we all know this is hard but we have made the decision to do this so lets get on and do it - I for one do not want to have to do any extra weeks of SS just because of a tiny piece of this or that.
    I am trying to think of it this way - one tiny blip could lead to another week of SS = £50 ( I have 4 tetras a day) - so what do I want that bit of choc or £50 to spend on myself when I am at goal- when you put it into perspective £50 is a hefty price for a blip - none of us would spend £50 on some chips etc so we need to start thinking logically about this.
    Hope this motivates some of you, we need to remember that every time we reach for a cheat how much it is going to cost us in lbs and £'s in the long run.

    So I am raising my glass of water and hope some of you do as well as here's to the new us!

    know exactly what you mean, and how you feel. I've joined the lent challenge as well no cheating for 46 days, when I think about the money I've wasted by not doing cd 100% I could cry :cry: I could have and should have been at goal a long time ago, but having a little taste of this and a little taste of that has stopped me aaarrgghhh. so like you I'm going to get my bum into gear and finally get to where I want to be.

    Hey there Tinkerbella, I know exactly where you are coming from as I have come to the same conclusion. I too have joined the Lent challange and am sticking to this 100%. Is going to be hard, but will be so worth it.

    All the best. Charlie xx

    Fantastic post Tinkerbella. Today is my first day on my first and last restart. I could kick myself for wasting the money I spent last time on CD as I have put back on most of the weight I lost. Well not just that money, I bought new clothes because of my loss and threw out the majority of my fat clothes...............so since putting back on, I have had to buy more fat clothes :eek: Am I made of bloody money?????

    Anyway, today is the first day of my slim journey and the last day of being fat!

    Well said tinkerbella. It's a lot of money to waste if not following 100% and I think it can make the diet MUCH harder. (btw I'm so tight, I couldn't allow myself to cheat because of the money side :eek:). Thanks for the motivational post!
