Nervous hello


Silver Member

I started CD today, after a few non-starts with LL and slim-fast. basically about two weeks in i lose my nerve and want to keep my flab. But this time ifeel different about it all. I am doing this for myself, my children and my husband. Before it was mainly for me. I spent a day last week running round soft play after my 2 year old, i ws shattered after 5mins. I want my girls to have a mum who can join in.

I need to lose 6stone to be i na healthy range, but that seems scary lol. thats the weight of my two younger girl combined :eek:

Working My Way to Thin!
Hi Misdee

Welcome to MiniMins, wish you all the luck with your weight loss journey

I am not doing same diet as you, but wishing you all the best, I am sure someone will be along soon who knows all about CD



Silver Member
thank you.

I feel good because I am finally taking this all in hand and doing soemthing, but so scared about what i will look like once the fat has gone. oh that sounds weird, but i have never been thin, have always been bigger than my siblings. but doing this now, my sisters are pregnant so i cant compare, which i think will be good for me (one is a size 10 after having 3 kids and eats everything).

Have had choc, strawberry and chick/mushroom soup today. not overl;y impressed and keep burping up strawberry shake, eurgh.

well, 1st shake of the day was lovely. cappachino, made with extra coffee and a sweetner tab. have also had a small coffee first thing and just finished my 1st 500ml of water of the day.

have a slight headache, so going to drink more water and maybe take a paracetamol later on.
welcome........ welcome..........!!!!!

Good luck - just take each day 1 at a time to get thru the 1st few :) .... Then it gets a little easier.

HI Misdee

I wish you all the best for your weightloss journey. You really really do deserve some good luck. I have just been reading your blog and what a stressful time for you. I hope everything works out well for you.

Take it easy and take it one day at a time.

All the best
