    Ooooook so here I am...again....overweight again...feeling hideous again!! Weighing in at 16.10 and on day 1 of a brand new me! Well that's the idea anyway, I've started and restarted more times than I care to remember but I can truly say that this is the 1st time I've felt this low about myself and the way I look so this time I'm determined to see results and stick to this!

    Saw my Cambridge counsellor yesterday and I'm armed with all my packs and ready to get going! 1 pack down 2 to go!

    Awww thanks! Yep, rise above it we will! I think once we start seeing the results it should spur us on to keep going!

    Ok so today wasn't particularly good, actually scrap that today wasn't good at all! Ate dinner with the kids and have no idea why...habit maybe...greed??! Well I do know that it wasn't hunger because I wasn't even hungry...?, I'm going to try not to get too caught up in the regret of my actions and move forward.

    I Lou, I am in a similar position - lost 6 stones and put it on again. Tried to get back onto the diet every week last year and failed each time but am now finally back in ketosis. I am trying not to dwell on my last miserable failure and am looking forward to get back into the size 12s I wore in 2012. You'll be feeling fab once you see the weight falling off!

    Hi Daisy Thanks for the encouragement! Well here goes day 1...feeling determined, going to have a sneaky weigh in to see the damage from yesterday....woken up with a little bit of a tummy ache, in the plus side I drank shedloads of water yesterday so at least I'm ok with that side of things, not all bad eh! 3 packs lets gooooo!

    Keep drinking the water, do you like black tea or coffee? I didn't but do now lol. Think I've just got use to it. Also green tea is good. Get through the first week and then your past the worst x

    Thanks Liz, I know I just need to get through these next few days to really feel in the zone, I'm going to have to really practice mind over matter! So far I don't feel too bad today although I haven't actually hit my danger time yet which is evenings but If I feel tempted I will just remind myself of how I felt yesterday after I'd eaten which was absolutely rotten! Seeing your stats and others on here really gives me motivation to keep going!

    Well it's done now, so either continue to beat yourself up or GET back on it tomorrow!!! I'm really fighting it this time I've just cooked my son curry and nan bread I was dribbling lol!!!

    I've had eggs either scrambled or omelette most nights as just need something to chew!! Also a hot choc mint drink in the evening is gd.

    Perhaps ur not quite ready to start again? You know war it's like u have to b in the right frame of mind to do this. Or just keep telling yourself it's not forever, do day by day xx

    Oh gawd I can't not be in the frame of mind to do this now, there's no choice in this matter...I've got to do it now! I'm going to draw yet another line under it and get back on it ASAP!

    Dribbling lol I can imagine, know that feeling only too well! At least your sticking to it and being sensible!

    Summer is only around the corner and I really don't want a repeat of last year, that's too depressing to even think about, hiding out on hot days and instead of enjoying the warm sun, struggling to cover up every ounce of cellulite on show lol gosh that thought is enough to keep the hunger at bay....

    How much weight have you lost so far and what weight are you hoping to get down to Vanessa? I think I'd be quite comfy at 12 stones and I haven't been that low since 2006, gosh nearly 10 years I've spent feeling crappy about myself...not good!

    Well I did this diet last yr and lost 2 stone in 6 weeks but this time I'm now in week 7 I think! I've lost 14lbs but had a few cheat days!

    I think we beat ourselves up when we cheat but u gotta remember we're in such low calories so it's good that we even made it this far! Right make a deal if u feel ur gonna cheat come on here and talk to me cos I'm gonna struggle at the weekend! We can support and moan together lol.

    I'd like to get to 11 but gonna get to 12'7 first!!! Baby steps xx

    Last weekend my tactic was to get out of bed as late as possible! I am seeing my CDC on Wednesday too but haven't yet had the guts to get on the scales.

    Hey Daisy, I'm sitting here laughing to myself because that is exactly my plan!! Defo going to try and get up as late as poss! I even let the kids stay up a little later than usual in the hope that they'd have a lie-in to allow me to have a lie-in!! Lol the things we have to do to make life a ill easier on this diet eh!

    How's it been going? So Wednesday is the day for us...! We've got 4 more full days until then to shed some lbs, I've not been too good so far but I'm hoping that I can redeem myself by then lol
