Hi everyone, I've had a few diaries on here but never really stuck at the vlcd. I did great at the beginning of last year and stuck to s&s 100% for 11 weeks and had great losses, I took a break and never got back on track. I've been faffing about with slim and save for the last 3 weeks now I managed a few days then ate then went back on the packs then ate etc, it hasn't all been bad as I have managed to lose 2 lbs a week in those 3 weeks making almost half a stone but I have to be 100% and get the weight down a bit quicker. I am going abroad to the Middle East either at the end of feb or beginning of march so I need to get at least a stone off by then as don't want to be all fat and frumpy and finding that no clothes fit me like before! I've been on plan today and I am normally fine until I get to day 3-4 but I will get through the barrier. Although I have been on s&s for the past 3 weeks as I haven't been 100% I'm taking today as day 1 with a starting weight of 12stone 8.4lbs. I am going to take starting weight pictures tomorrow so I can compare at the end as I never did that before.
