Just started CD SS - in week 2

Hi all, my name is Alexis (Lex for short)! I started CD SS on the 11/06 and lost 7lbs at my first weigh in on the 18/06. I had actually started on the Tuesday as I had a few packs and had already lost 3lbs but am taking my starting weight from my first 'official weigh in'. I lost 4 stone 3 years ago with LL starting at 15.4 and getting down to 11.4 and then met my boyfriend. After 3 years together we have just broken up :cry:and as he was a real couch potato who loved his weekend boozing and take-outs, I have managed to put 3 stone back on since we met. I am therefore now getting my life back and as we are no longer together it's the perfect time to lose the weight I've gained.

It makes me so miserable being this much overweight and as I love the outdoors, horse riding, walking my dog etc being overweight really doesn't fit in with the lifestyle I love and how I want to be.

So please wish me luck on my journey....... I will post after week 2 weigh in if not before :)

Hi Lexy
welcome to the board, its great, I'm a newbie and it's been brilliant so far, so supportive.

Secondly - are you me?! I lost 4.5 stone with LL, put all bar a stone of it back on, now here on CD to lose it all again! Even the weights are the same - went from 15'3 or something down to 11 something.

Anyway good luck and <wave> hello!

Hope you enjoy being here and good luck with CD.
