    Hello Everyone, :)

    How are you all? So, after coming here for a long while, I have decided to finally go ahead and join and say a big hello to everyone, I'm hoping to get some motivation and support as have been reading all the success stories on here which are really inspirational, have also been reading the struggles and can totally relate.

    I am a Cambridge Dieter who has been crawling along behind the wagon for a month (amongst the wrappers of snickers, doritos and basically anything else that is bad for me) and am trying desperately to get back on. I did SS for 3 weeks and lost 7kgs (15lbs), dropped a dress size and let the moment go to my head and started to celebrate a little too early. Since then I have been on and off the CD but have finally settled on SS+ and feel a lot more comfortable having that small meal each evening. I've put back on 4kgs (8.8lbs) since I've let the moment go to my head, though considering all the bad things I have eaten, that is actually quite good.

    I'm originally from Australia and have been in London for 5 years, in which time I have gained 3 dress sizes, something that seemed to have happened when I wasn't looking.

    A wake up call came knocking recently when I realised it is 5 months to my wedding day, I don't want to be someone who looks back on their photos horrified, I'd like to walk down the aisle and feel beautiful, confident and happy about how I look. At the moment I can't remember the last time I didn't walk past a mirror and cringe. At the same time, I feel I lack will power and so often give in to the fat devil sitting on my shoulder.

    I hope being here and talking to you all will help, and I look forward to meeting everyone around the forum.

    Also, was wondering what people's wake up calls were? Mine was not only 3 extra dress sizes, but that moment the button and the hole didn't meet up in the middle in my favourite clothes store, and to top things off the next size up wasn't available! :(
