LL HAS GIVEN ME BACK A LIFE

#1
Hi all
Just thought I would post a thread as I have followed every ones sucess stories and you have all been insperational, and have not really contributed anything myself. I started LL on 22/08/06 and found it hard at the begining but when I started to see the weight come off I started to believe I might be slim again. (a picture at my daughters wedding shocked me) I had been overweight for about 20 year (since the biths of my kids) over the years I put on weight till I reached more than 16 stone (I'm 5ft 3in) I was size 22 plus, if 22 would'nt fit I would'nt buy it. I am now 9st 5lbs I am going into management next week so whatever I lose this week will be a bonus, oh and I am now a size 10.
I now have my life back (and confidence) I have a horse who I had not rode for 6 year I am now out riding every spare moment and it is brill I feel like a kid again.
So to all you who are just starting LL or any other vlcd it works, take each day and week as it comes you will get there, I had tried all the diets and this is definatley the best.
So good luck to you all.
Oh and I done a 2 week all inclusive holiday in my 6 and 7th week of LL it is the first time I have lost weight and not come back a stone heavier, yeah it was hard but sooooooooooo worth it.:)

Skinny minnie keep going you are almost half way and the time flies I look back and it does't seem like six month since I started, you can do it, I got rid of a person I didn't like, I was always miserable and snappy with family but now I have got rid of that person and I am sooooooooooooo happy and I would say I am now a nice person (my family agree) and I can't stop looking in the mirror (I didn't even have a full length one before) now I love it, wish all my wall's were mirrored ha ha.
Wendy good luck the first few weeks are hard but it does get easier to the point it becomes habit (like eating and drinking did) YOU CAN DO IT.
Jane keep going you are doing well, don't compare your weight losses with other's all our bodies are different, I used to get dissapointed if I did'nt get a big weight loss and others did but I lost six pound this week after a few weeks of slow weight losses so it just show's you can get a big weight loss even when you are near your target, my bmi started at 40 it is now 23.1, good luck

I keep coming back to this thread to read about your success :) It's weird, but as I've not actually started yet, it all seems like some kind of strange dream, so its brilliant to read such a positive post. I know I can lose the weight on LL so to read the 'reality' is a real boost. Thank you!:D
