Life Changing CD

I started my CD journey on the 9th July 07 and omg what a ride i've been on since!! I thought i would share a bit of it with you all.
The reason i decided to do this diet was because my whole life i've battled with my weight problems, i've tried every diet out there only to end up heavier than when i started! but this time it was different, my health was suffering, i had terrible pains in my legs, my back ached all the time also we had been trying unsuccessfully to conceive for 3yrs. At 17st7lb the doctors said loosing weight would help our chances so that night i did my research it came down to 2 choices CD or Gastric band! I chose CD and i can honestly say it was the best decision i've ever made.
Everyday is different, i mean one day i feel i can do this diet forever and the next day it is the diet from hell, i moan it's not working and i could eat the entire fringe but the difference is i don't.
When i look how far i've come i have to pinch myself, I was a size 22 when i started and now i'm size 14/16 (16 getting loose!) I'm not anywhere near target but i will get there. I feel great and can't wait to begin life as a skinny and also to acheive my dream of becoming a mum :D
There is no point to this thread only to say thank you everyone for all your help and advise, to all the newby's stick at it and to anyone struggling you can do it :hug99:

Hi Hazel

I just want to say good luck with your journeys (losing weight and becoming a mum).

I was a very similar weight to you (17st 1lb) when I got diagnosed with PCOS when trying for my son and I lost weight on Atkins and then took prescribed herbal medicines - my story, in fact, is in December's issue of Mother and Baby Magazine. It can be a sad time trying for a baby but don't give up hope and your working so hard to make your dream come true, I'm sure it will happen.
