    Well here I am 6 years after it all started - the depressive episode which motored on to become bipolar disorder, anxiety, binge eating, benzo addiction, bulimia, OCD, you name it psychologically I got it! and in return I lost my professional career (5yrs at uni down the drain), my friends, my figure, my confidence, my self-esteem and what I considered my future. The bankruptcy was the icing on the cake.......except I probably ended up eating too much cake!
    Ive picked myself up, started retraining, financially i'm not good!, am eager to get out there and socialise but my weight holds me back, its almost if I can lose this 5 stone I will be back to my pre 2000 figure and I can forget this last 6 years....I can honestly say that when you have experienced the depths of hell you appreciate life and i'm eager to live every minute of what I have left so here goes, cambridge diet.......:p

    Hi tally,

    Your very welcome and good for you for picking yourself up and dusting yourself down and starting all over again.

    I can feel your fighting spirit jump off the page:)

    Education is never wasted, you can build on what you know and by the sound of things you have been through the mill.

    Everything we learn in life is never wasted. As we travel we meet other people and we find or are givien oppurtunities to use what we know, such is life.

    Best of luck on your diet journey and if you follow the diet 100% you will shift your five stone weight.

    Good luck with your weight loss journey.

    Like you say, you've lost so much, but now all you have to lose is weight!!

    You'll soon have that weight off and the past 6 years will be but a distant memory!

    Good Luck!!!
