    Ive decided to set myself a challenge, as I dont have a target of losing weight for a holiday, wedding birthday etc.

    My challenge is 100 day challenge.

    1. I will stick to CD only for 100 days (allowing for the aamw)

    2. I will walk for at least 30 minutes every day.

    3. I will try to be as positive as I can!

    I know I will have bad days, but if I have a challenge to stick to I will be so much stronger!!
    I will try to post every day to let you know how its going.

    Wish me luck!!

    I wish you luck. I got into the habit of walking last year everyday and it really is amazing in the summer. You'll love that. As for being positive all the time I'm not so sure. I think we need to be in touch with our feelings; this diet is difficult and I get down but it helps to be honest about that and come on here and get inspiration, motivation and support from everyone. I did a big moan last night as I was feeling very down but the response I got was amazing and it lifted me right up! So I'd suggest be real with your feelings. I'm sure we can do this though cos of all the support on here. x

    Well day 1 was great,just hope I can keep it up! Surprised myself a few times cause I wanted to eat, but just took time out and realised I wasnt hungry at all, its just a really bad habit of stuffing myself for the sake of it.
    Feel so much better to be in control for once instead of giving in.
    Am trying to keep myself busy, diversion is a great tool!!!
    Is anyone else doing cd but not telling family or friends? Only my husband knows, I cant bare the negative comments I know Id get from everyone else. I also live 250miles from family, so I cant wait to see them later in the year a good bit smaller than I am now!!

    Hi Ellie

    Yes, I'm doing this diet and my BF doesn't know. I said I was low carbing to see if it makes a differnce on how I feel, as some foods don'y agree with me...and thats all true anyway. I have a hyetias hernia and IBS so need to control what I eat anyway.

    My side of the family knows tho, and so will my BF in 5 weeks, when i Move in with him. But for now, its nice to keep it to myself with him, and when he see's the results and comments, it'll be all the difference. I'm not doing it for him tho, i'm doing it for me! xx

    good luck what a good challenge, i mtried not to tell anyone, but i have to have shakes whilst out with them so told mum, sis and friend, but wont tell my dad and stepmum, cos they will make comment, and they are also fat, so i think its jealousy, i told them last time and they critisised it no end. trying not to visit them for a few weeks aswell so when i go in they will be stuck for words.. now that would be nice xxx

    Claira.. i do find it hard to keep it quiet, but for now, I don't want ppl to comment either, esp "how are you getting on with it" and looking at me with that look of "have you lost any weight, lol". Rather do without any of that atm, lol. x
