    Hi everyone..
    I am starting Lighter Life on Monday the 6th (hopefully) or should I say restarting.
    I have done LL in 2006 and lost 4 stones in 3 months. I was on top of the world and stupidly I thought I can now manage on my own and failed to do the management stage.
    I of course put it all back on and then some so last year in June I decided to give it a go again. I was doing so well and then my circumstances changed suddenly that made me quit after a month.

    So... Here I am again giving LL another go. I am going to see my new LLC on Sunday and I'm hoping to start day after.
    I am really looking forward to it but at the same time I feel ashamed and embarrassed that it had taken me this long to sort myself out.
    In last year alone I tried 4 different diets, spent an absolute fortune and I'm still no slimmer or healthier.
    I can't begin to tell you how frustrated I am!

    LL works and that is a fact. You just have to stick to it, go to your group meetings and most importantly don't leave to cope with it on your own without doing RTM!

    I personally know I will definitely see this till the end this time.
    It's scary and like all of you newbies I need all of the encouragement and support I can get.
    I am sure though we can all help each other get to where we want to be!
    We deserve it and most of all we are worth the effort!!!
    Good luck
    M. X

    Ok, so I had my first LL meeting this afternoon.
    My LLC seems really lovely. Very helpful.
    She took all my stats, took pics etc. It took me right back to good old times when I first did it.
    I weigh more than what I though I did :( but hey I am not going to get depressed, it's not time for that!
    I got my foodpacks and I am officially ready to go!
    Starting tomorrow and I have my first group meeting in the evening. I am realy looking forward to meeting all the ladies and just getting on with it.
    Will post tomorrow after the meeting :)

    Hi magiclove, good luck on your journey with ll. im a bit like you and have tried various diets over the past, the most recent being sw, i know they work but since doing ll 2 years ago and losing 4 stone in 4 months im now too impatient to do normal diets!!!
    I have been back in touch with ll councillor and am joining tuesday 7th . Im going to start on foodpacks tomorow though as i have some left from a very half hearted attempt earlier this year(didnt even last a week!!).
    We can do this ! I would love to be 3 stone less by xmas time.
    Good luck for your first day tomorrow.

    Thanks Jo!
    Yes we CAN do it!! I really feel positive about this. It's time. Kinda a 'now or never' moment.
    I am soooo sick and tired of being fat and yo-yoing all the time. Enough is enough i'd say!
    Good luck to you too!

    Yes! I love the porridge. I'm also curious about the chilli con carne as it wasn't around when I did it before.
    We shall see.. ;)

    Ok. So it's my first day back on LL. I had my porridge for breakfast and I feel good so far. I may have a little bit of a problem later on in the day as I'm in meetings all day and to make things worse I'm being taken out for a business lunch. I don't know how I'm going to be able to wiggle out of that one?! :(
    I'm determined to stick to it though, have taken my packs with me and will try to have them somehow instead of the full blown lunch. Luckily it's me who's the boss there so I should be able to get away with not eating without offending anyone ;)
    Have my proper group meeting this evening and my medical.
    Exciting day! :D

    I'm on day 2 and I feel great! I had a slight headache last night so I had an early night and this morning I feel great. I'm slightly hungry but I'm sure I'll be fine as soon as I have my porridge at work.
    I had my first group meeting last night and it was great. A small group of 4 for now but I'm sure that will change (Xmas coming up lol).
    My LLC is lovely. So motivating. I probably shouldn't be saying this but she is so much more competent than my first one :S
    She made us all feel so positive and made us believe in ourselves and that we can do it!
    So we all commuted to losing 3 st by 15th Dec (100 days). That's 10 days after my birthday! If that's not a goal I don't know what is! ;)
    Roll on first WI!

    What a difference a day makes!
    I feel sooo much better today (minus the period pains).
    I'm having a pretty stressful day at work and normally I'd just go and buy some chocolate on my lunch break but instead of that I'm just trying to put my feet up and rest, read a little, maybe have a cup of tea. I always used to crave something sweet after my lunch which obviously is a no no so I'm starting to learn about my thought processes and how to cope with them.
    I can't wait for my first weigh in now..

    I don't mind it but I can see myself getting bored of it quickly.
    It's day 5 and I'm feeling really hungry today (thought you weren't supposed to feel hunger once in ketosis :(). Maybe it's because it's my day off and I have more time to think about it (i.e not eating)
    I'm looking forward to getting my bars now...

    Day 8 and I have my first weigh in tonight. Can't wait to find out how much I've lost! :D
    It's been challenging few days. I've been having bad headaches and yesterday I was feeling really sick. I kept wanting to throw up but obviously nothing came out. Today the sickness has gone but I've got a storming headache so not sure what's going on. I've been drinking plenty of water and ketostix has been nice and pink for days now. Maybe it's a combination of things. Stress at work and a bit of a situation with OH. I just need to learn how to take it easy and slow down.
    Here's to a good weigh in tonight ;) (having chocolate shake as we speak)
