    No-one will remember me. I started my CD journey 2 years ago, reached my target after 3 months and kept it off for six months. Then discovered I was pregnant with my second child. Had my daughter in May this year, rejoined somewhat half-heartedly in August, lost just over a stone, but decided to come off it and what until I felt ready to do CD properly. Thus, set myself a target to rejoin on 1 January 2010. I am starting Friday and seeing my wonderful counsellor on Monday. Hoping to lose 2 stone to get back to pre-pregnancy weight, so plllleeeeaaasssseeeee ........ fill me with inspiration!

    Hi there! I did cd last year and lost 2 and a half stones, didnt do the programmes properly so here i am again!!! ( i havent got as much to lose this time- thank goodness) I find if i come on here when my motivation is low it does wonders and gives me the much needed will power. Good luck with your re-start

    Thanks Jules. I have less to lose than I did originally, so I too am very grateful for that. I found Minimins a total godsend last time, so many motivating stories. I found SS really easy last time since I work evenings so am not at home when the family are sitting down to dinner, am hoping for the same this time!

    I am now counting down the hours til I restart CD tomorrow. Am heading to friends with the kids to celebrate the NY "quietly", although alcohol will be consumed (not by the kids!!). Sitting here feeling the roll of fat around my jeans waistband, I actually cannot wait until tomorrow!

    Hi hun.

    In theory, I should remember you cos we were around at the same time in 2008. But forgive me, I don't. Old age, probably...;)

    Just wanted to wish you all the best for tomorrow. I shall also be restarting - for real this time! - tomorrow.

    Hope you have a fantastic evening and dare to believe, like me, that this is the last New Year's Eve that you and I shall be feeling those pesky rolls of fat! :D

    Hi fed up, I just find it difficult because of working a mixture of shifts, and that changes week to week, if you work permanent nights then i guess you will just be having your packs around the same time as you would have had your meals? My saviour at the mo is my bottle of water! I have actually taken a shift at work tonight ( where i am at present ) to distract me from all the partying and food!!!!!
