    Hi!

    I thought I would pop in and say hello to you guys.

    Last June I started teh cambridge diet and went from 21.7 stone to 13.2.....unfortunately in February I started feeling very ill and found out my iron level was very low.

    I came off CD then went on it, off, on etc etc etc

    Just tried to restart it but felt so very ill, I guess my body has had enough.

    I was never someone who sat with lots of junk food or ate all day. My weight has been a problem ALL my 27 years and with having M.E my activity levels are not high.

    Unfortunately I dislike a lot of food but do like things like Pasta and potatoes, fine if you are burning it off but I was not.

    Recently I have developed a very unhealthy attitude to food, scared of it and then would eat something and well, try and get rid of it if you get my drift!

    When I weighed myself recently I was in the 14 stones...apparently weight gain is to be expected if you come off CD completely.

    Beating myself up about it all, but something clicked tonight...which is why I am still up. I am a size 14/16 from a size 26/28 and yet I am still moaning! I need to appreciate what I have now and get on with it.

    So WW seems the best option, I can eat with my friends and family while losing weight.

    Feel this is right for me now so I hope to 'see' you all around!

    Thank you guys, well at the top of my height/weight healthy range I should be 11 stone something. At the moment I am medium/large 14 and I would be so happy to be a 12.

    I keep putting off buying new clothes but I have decided I have done well to get this far and I am off out tomorrow with money to burn.

    Already feeling so much better on WW!

    Hi Emma Louise, and welcome to WW

    I really admire that you could stick with a vlcd for 8months. That's amazing and shows that if you can do that, WW will be a total breeze.

    Well done on your loss so far.
