    Hi Everyone

    I did LL last year and did not complete, my daughter's wedding was in week 7, looking back I should not have started the programme when I did but I thought it was the right thing to do at the time. I was determined not to eat at the wedding:rolleyes: it just did'nt come off, I bowed to pressure from my family, my husband who all told me how odd it would be if I did not eat and stuck to sole source and eventually I gave in, it was the start of the end. I made a half hearted attempt to get back on track but felt like I had let myself and everyone else down in the group and so gave up. I found this website about 2 weeks ago and was toying with the idea of restarting LL, the benefits being the diet does work (I lost 2 stone 2 pounds, but have regained 1 stone) for me, the downside being, I did not like the councelling, felt I did not get anything out of it , LLC read from the notes in her pack each week and the dvd's were not my cup of tea although I do understand people get a lot from them, just not me. I did not always have the time to commit to 2 hour sessions per week. One of the largest contributing factors to me giving up LL last year was the feeling that I had let everyone down in the group by giving in at the wedding and eventually for good.

    I read my way through the LL forum and then started on the CD forum and I have now made up my mind to start this. I have found a CDC who sounds wonderful and I have spoken to her on the phone and made an appointment for next Saturday, I work Mon-Fri in London and I did toy with finding a CDC in London but really wanted to find one closer to home. She sounds perfect (Sue if you are reading these forum's at all I can't wait to meet you and start this thing). Please the biggest bonus, CD is much much cheaper, its 1:1 and it has more flavour, tetra blocks, I'm soooooo excited.

    I intend to start a thread which I will use like a diary to keep a check on myself, so feel free to comment but just wanted to say a big thanks to you all, you truly are inspirational and have had a big part to play in my decision to start.

    Thanks for the encouragement - Wobbly great, happy to have the support and give you some along the way too.

    When I've figured out hour to update my profile I will be setting mini goals and stuff and adding a ticker but I am currently 14st (5' 3") and am setting a target weight of 9st 7lbs. Hoping to get to goal mid September, how about you?
