    Well I have tried so hard to lose my weight and here I am again heading back to 20 stone.. I had very good results with a VLCD and have a cuboard full of Slim & Save products, I started with good intentions the 1st of January and then blew it, Calorie counting and adding treats in just does not work for me :(, I'm an "all or nothing " person . I really want to do this and will appreciate any support x So Day one for me, Am at work but will write more later

    Hi KatieRose it's so hard isn't it, I think most of us consider ourselves 'all or nothing' and when it goes a bit wrong it all goes out the window!! We really must be kinder to ourselves and forgive the odd blip that we are bound to have and then just soldier on

    Good luck on day one!

    Thank you ladies x I really find the support here so much help . I tend not to comment when I'm not doing well, I'm determined tho to stick with it this time. My weight stops me from doing lots of things I feel I have become a bit of a hermit and I avoid going out as I don't like my expanding clothes. I tried a VLCD 3 years ago and lost 3 stone in 3 months and then I kidded myself I looked ok so I stopped and since then put the 3 stone back on and just recently I could feel that I was going out of control more and more . My downfall has always been wine and then all the food I eat with it so I decided today enough was enough and I started this diary as I started to read some if the success stories and it gave me hope . So Day one done I'm pleased to say :) x

    Day Two :- am having a few wobbly moments so am reading as many diaries as possible to keep me on track and drinking water :) . For the first time ever last night I took some before photos in my underwear what a shock ! I have been in denial avoiding mirrors convincing myself because I put my make up on I look ok I never look at my full length profile as I don't recognise myself so hopefully this time I won't hide from the facts ! I look awful really overweight ( I am obviously) I'm being honest on here and will confess to thinking I look no bigger Than a size 16 who was I kidding ? Myself .. :-( anyway am getting thro day 2 and thank you to the ladies who have posted on my diary really helps x x

    I definitely did the denial thing too. One particularly stretchy dress had a lot to answer for. Annoyingly it works the other way too - only just starting to recognise the difference. I know the clothes are smaller but look in the mirror and don't feel very different.

    Won't be long before you get that lovely feeling of calm and the satisfaction of knowing that you are doing it. Keep reading to keep the wobbles at bay!!

    Day 4:- woo got through day 3 that was a tough one ! Don't feel as hungry today . At the moment I'm having 4 packs and veg altho I am going to vary and will have a protein meal at the weekends as that way it will seem like a treat .

    I find weekends harder too although saying that i'm at home today and not wobbling at all :) once you're in the zone there's no stopping you!!
  17. Clinquant

    Clinquant Gold Member

    Hurrah for the zone. I much prefer weekends as I can sort out my own routine and find it easier to distract myself with stuff I want to do. Plan something nice to do now.

    Day 5:- think I am in the zone as I don't feel hungry which is good however I had a porridge oatmeal pack I used to love them and I didnt really like it today :-( . I have quite a few too does anyone know how to make the cookies?
    Thank you to Pri x Lou x and clin x I will try having my packs later and I am planning on keeping myself busy . :)
    So am not dreading the weekend now :)

    You've done the first few - hardest - days! Brilliant!

    I am am finding this weekend a hard prospect mentally. I have no idea why I am feeling like this when other weekends have been fine! I wonder if it's just the change unsettles us after getting into a groove all week?

    Day 7 :- yesterday was hard but I did it .. Had protein instead of a pack for one of the meals and will be doing the same today . Have been reading as many diaries as I can to give me tips and I feel determined :) I tend to be a slower loser but that's ok I just have to keep going I tend to give up after a few weeks not this time tho .
    Hi to lulu hope you got through yesterday x

    Welcome and let me tell you. We have so much in common. I'm also very much all or nothing person which is why this diet works for me like no other.
    This forum is a complete life saver. We are all here for each other to support not judge, encourage not criticise.
    Good luck on your journey!
