    annaphylactic Guess who's back...?

    Hi gang!

    Just thought I would get in touch - been a while. For those that haven't got a scooby who I am... well... I'm Anna... hi, nice to meet you! :D

    Well, things with me have been both eventful and non-eventful. Not been working for a while so been living at the gym/spa up the road from my house. Got a trainer who is slowly punishing me.

    My eating hasn't been ideal, but luckily my ridiculous gym obsession has curbed any major probs there with weight gain. I am probably half a stone heavier than I was when I came off LL in January. Those that remember me will know that I didn't do RTM, although I wished I had - but I wasn't at goal either - was more of a 'melt down' than a nice, refined finish to the journey.

    Anyway - am pretty happy that I have 'almost' stabilised my weight, and it's now time for the second big push. I won't be doing LL I don't think - I am all over the place for the next few months, so won't be able to do it properly - meetings etc - so is a bit pointless. I am about 12 stone ish now, and I want to get to around 10. I am off to a Slimming World meeting tomorrow, so will give that a go.

    When I first came off LL I tried various diets, but it was too soon I think... needed to get back to normality. So, here I am (albeit with a love of health and fitness... weird...), I feel ready now to get on with it.

    Anyway- just wanted to get in touch. Have been accepted for an interview at University, which is VERY exciting. I want to study Occupational Therapy, so fingers crossed I get through - interview on 9th July, so wish me luck!

    Am also a qualified ESL Teacher now after completing my course at the teacher training college in Buenos Aires... again, good times (and not a sniff of Davina!).

    Have kept in touch with Andy, Beki, Emma, Lubna etc through Bookface, but for those of you I've lost contact with - hope you are doing well and I will continue to check in every now and again - this really was my home for my time on LL, and still can't thank you all enough.

    So, for the time being - I am going to be popping over to the SW side of minimins... 5 stone down... 2 to go! :)

    ANNA! Lovely to 'see' you!
    Glad you are doing well! :)

    I've caught the fitness bug too, strange isn't it?

    Fingers crossed for your University application/interview, and all the best for SW!

    Don't be a stranger now!

    Great to see you back Anna. I remember you and your inspiring posts.

    Obviously, you didn't get on BB. I was watching the contestants going in wondering if one of them would be you.

    Good luck on SW. I did it for a few years and lost a fair amount of weight. I would recommend this diet to anyone if they thought LL was too extreme as it does work. I liked it but it's just not quick enough when you have 6st to loose.

    Take care and keep posting x x

    Oh absolutely... LL was perfect for me for losing the big chunk of weight - I would have lost motivation with the smaller losses. You're doing BRILLIANTLY Becks... wow - incredible! :)
