Mission Slim-possible! (Shivie's Journey)

    Shivie On a mission!

    Hi all you super-slimmers out there!

    Yet again I am back to try a third time to lose the weight and get my mojo back! Hope the "third time lucky" rule will apply!

    I've been unspeakably baaaaaad food-wise since Easter. The Easter bunny made me do it...he did, he did! :eek:

    My weaknesses are (and probably always will be, but in moderation in future and only on special occasions not EVERY FLIPPING DAY!):

    - Creamy pasta dishes
    - Fish & chips
    - Cup cakes (the Tesco ones)
    - Pizza & garlic bread

    So I have a plan and if I can stick to it and check in here each day for the amazing support I should be okay.

    I'm going to do a master cleanse for the next 3 days (i.e the lemon, cayenne & maple syrrup one) to try and lose 5lbs
    Then it's back to the Slim & Save plan.

    My friend's wedding is coming up on June 2nd and if I could lose a stone at least by then I'd be very happy.

    I got down to 136lbs for a wedding last October and felt absolutely AMAZING so I know IT'S MORE THAN POSSIBLE.

    I am going on hols (just a "staycation"!) the last week of June and have previously ALWAYS been the fattest one in the group
    and totally self-conscious about it so I would LOVE if this time was different so I could just relax and enjoy being on holiday.

    So here goes, once again, and may this be THE time I can MAKE IT HAPPEN!

    Much love & support to you all. Any words of encouragement will be greatly appreciated, thanks! x

    Ahhhhhhhhhh! Why can't I be stronger than this???! Caved due to a severe carb withdrawl and am so so annoyed with myself.
    I SUCK!! I KNOW if I can just complete one day and not cave that I am going to be grand.
    Have to get rid of the greedy demon constantly whispering in my ear. Anyone any good at exorcisms???!!!

    You don't suck hun! Ive been there and it does kinda feel sucky il admit but feel proud that you want this and let the other stuff go (easier said than done as I'm hard on myself too). C'mon fresh start! Regarding the demons? I'm trying the gym tonight. Fingers crossed it works! X

    Thanks Sia! A couple of the others mentioned that chromium tablets reduce the carb cravings so I might give them a go to get through even the first week.
    You're doing great judging by your stats...go you!! Happy gyming! x

    Come on lovely!!! You can do it!!!

    Get yourself some chromium tabs and settle back into things.... Dont be too hard on yourself babe!!!

    You can do it!! X

    Thanks for your unwavering faith in me Dee! Got the chromium after work yesterday and started them last night.
    Took one as soon as I got to work this morning as the cravings usually kick in as soon as I get off the bus
    and get the smell of breakfast fry-ups wafting from the local cafes!
    It really does seem to make a difference, this quickly, and I'm only two tablets in!
    Just gotta stay busy until I'm safely over lunch hour and then I'll be well on my way to conquering the day!
    Love & strength to you all xx

    Well I'm more than halfway through lunch hour and haven't caved yaaaayyy!!
    I even went up to the bottle bank at the local Tesco with a load of jars & bottles from work
    and sailed right past the door near where those devilish cup-cakes are usually calling to me!
    I've got an un-put-down-able book and plenty of house work to keep me busy for the weekend
    so if I can just make it to the end of today I'm sorted and back in the zone!
    Praaaayyyyy forrrrr meeeeeeeee......x

    Right it's officially the weekend!! Just leaving work and so chuffed that I've made it through without caving.
    I'm confident I can make it through the weekend now.
    Will keep busy busy busy and hopefully report back on Monday morning here in top form!
    Have a great weekend girlies and stay strong xx

    With a bang! Thanks for your unwavering support & (not-so)-gentle persuasiveness, really needed that
    to get my ar*e in gear once and for all.
    I'd love to be at 154lbs by the wedding so 8lbs in 13 days is the challenge. Is it possible??!! We'll have to wait and see!
    Then I'd only have 18lbs left to go and am pretty sure I could get half that off by holiday on 23rd June.
    Oooooh the excitement!!

    Hope everyone else is having a majorly positive day....xx
