Hi I'm Lisa and new around here. I'm 36 and been overweight for most of my adult life tried most of the slimming clubs and did managed to lose 3 and 1/2 stone with WW but it all went back on and more. I've been reading lots of posts on here over the last few days and feel very inspired, so I have decided that the only way for me is a VLCD. I'm gonna start the CD on 28th Jan the only reason Im delaying the start is that I'm going away weekend of the 25th. I have my meeting with the CDC on the 24th so I'm ready to start on the monday after I get back. I've been looking at all your before and after photos and you all look fantastic! Hope I'm as successful.

Hi Lisa Marie!!! I am in a similar situation to you. I'm 32, lost about 3 1/2 stone with WW a few years back, before that was always overweight. It has crept back on mainly in the past 3 years so decided on a VLCD. Its my second week, having lost 7lbs last week. Seeing all the pics of people a few weeks/months into it is inspiration enough, but everyone is so nice and the messages are brilliant. (I am am completely addicted to visiting the site!!)I was advised to cut down on carbs for a couple of days before starting, which I did and I think it helped. I didn't really feel hungry in my first week, despite my OH having fish & chips on my first day!! I think I was so determined to see through Day 1 and succeed than to give in and scoff chips, I felt so chuffed with myself (which actually felt better than feeling sick from chip overload!!!)
Hi Lisa! Good luck with it, enjoy your weekend before you start! Its a great diet!

Thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I know I'm just gonna love this site, I'm addicted already lol. Reading all your tips and stories is really inspirational and I can't wait to start CD. I know it's gonna be a long hard slog but I'm determined to lose the weight this time I don't want to be obese anymore. I need to lose about 5.5 stone, that will take me to 9.5 stone but will set myself small goals along the way.

Once again thanks everyone :)
