Making the move


I am not new to the forum but I am new to CD. Well nearly. I started with LL on the 2nd Jan 07 and lost nearly 6 st and have been trying to maintain since 29th May.

I have had a gain of 1.5st and have spent a lot of time feeling guilty about things I eat.

Anyway I made a decision 6wks ago to go back onto LL on the 2nd Jan 08 for probably only 6wks to shift this gained weight and possibly a little bit more and then try and maintain it again.

Yesterday I discovered that a new CDC has set up in my area so I gave her a call and decided that I would give CD a chance if I could be accepted to SS with only a small amount to loose.

Anyway I have an appointment with her on the 7th Jan. I have some LL packs left so officially the diet starts on the 7th but I will already be SS from the 2nd Jan 08. I want to be back in my summer wardrobe in time for summer and this time I intend to stay in a size 10 not wander into the 12's!!!

I am now going to get to grips with the posts in the CD section and wish you all a merry xmas and a happy new year.

hi Joh117

well first of all congratulations on the 6st weight loss this yr!

good luck with loosing the 1.5st that you want to loose and thank you for your christmas wishes!

Hiya Jo

Both diets are absolutely great and work for weight loss so enjoy.

Talk over with your new CDC about a longer term weight maintenance strategy and how you can look to keep the weight off permanently this time.

Have a nice xmas and go for it in January.


I know where I have gone wrong and will discuss with the CDC. I need to put more time into preparing healthy food. I found it eaiser in the summer months and loved having salads etc.. I have been bad recently and what with all the social activities associated with xmas and my bday I find it hard to keep my adult self in check once I have had a drink. The thought of not having a drink is not a great thought though I dont drink much since completing LL. I still religiously drink 4 litres of water a day so there is a good habit I have kept up.

I seem to gain weight with just the slightest of unhealthy food and I guess its a case of fighting the demons and making the break from these as just a small amount causes my weight to fluctuate. I need to put a stop to binges and also with secret eating. Well I will get xmas out of the way and then start afresh in the new year and at least I will nip it in the bud before the 6st creeps back in.
