    I am pledging to re-start cambridge on 7 January 2008.... Just posted on another thread about it.

    I have faffed about for ever and ever with my weight and it has to come off next year, sick and tired of failing at diets (i have tried them all ). It is starting to affect my marriage I think (i.e. in the bedroom). i am the heaviest I have ever been in my life.

    Is anyone else lurking in the background wondering what to do. If you are join this thread as i will need all the help i can get as i have failed more times than i dare count at it....

    I have a wedding in July that i need to loose weight for, it is in ireland and we have booked it all. There is no way I am going the size I am. I need to loose at least 5 stone by then but 6 would be great. If I start on 7 January that will give me 26 weeks till the wedding. More than enough time (positive thinking needed)..

    I have things planned this weekend and next weekend and then christmas and new year (excuses i know) then i have nothing planned till the wedding. I know things will come up they always do, but I will learn to say NO!!!:)

    This sounds good to me. I lost most of the weight I wanted to a while back (17st 2 to 11st 7) then fell pregnant & put a fair bit back on (15st 9 after DD). DD was born in March & I have lost quite a bit (down to 12st 8 - most of it since Sept)

    So why do I need to lose the rest of it? Well I am Tracey B's CDC & as a lot of you will know she won the slimmer of the year competition & we are off to Vietnam at the end of April. So my target is to lose 2 1/2 to 3st by the end of March. Even though the focus will obviously be on Trace I do not want to be overweight when we go.

    oh me me me i would love to join you all. i contacted my cdc about restarting and have decided that i really don't think its a gud idea to start before xmas and she returns on the 3rd of jan so i will be restarting then. I lost 5 st last yr and have managed to regain 3 which i ma not happy about so ihave decided its my time to do this now and to get to my goal once and for all no more messing. I have tried ww and sw since cd but have failed miserably lol so i now i have to get bak to cd asap. So please can i join your challenge i look forward toposting and to getting to know you all better.

    love bee xx

    Count me in too. Been messing about this week and it's slowly dawning on me that a pre-Xmas start ain't the best idea for me. My head's not in the right place.

    Im in. This is just what I need after failing to restart CD again and again. I have only ever managed to stick to CD for just over a week before going away on holiday and failing to get back on the wagon. Needless to say that I have put back on all of the weight that I did lose. I will start on the 2nd of Jan.

    I'm in from 7th January. My head's not in the right place at the moment either because it's too close to Xmas. I'm managing a few days or part of days which is ok because I'm hoping it will help me maintain.

    I'm away at the Minimins meet in Newcastle the first weekend in January so I'll start when I get back :D

    Hi,
    Count me in, after a humiliating trip to Alton Towers this year (posted about it a little while back!) me and my girlfriends are going to go again next year and I will NOT be going the size that I am now!
    I will be starting on the 2nd as the children go back to school (and my baby starts school!) on the 3rd so less stress so less likely to cave in!

    Sally (oooh must update my ticker then too as it's about 50 stone out of date!)
