Hello thanks for reading! I've done Cambridge and slim&save before with success but the binger in me got the better of me lately and I an carrying more than I am comfortable with again! I did the London marathon in April and you'd think i would have lost weight training - but I managed to gain a lot instead. Since April I hve had a series of failed restarts. And then I was hit by a car in July which even 2.5 months on has left me in pain and unable to exercise. So I've started again on exante / slim and save (I have both packs but most are exante) I am too scared to record a start weight as I fear it may be 160 pounds so I haven't. I will have my first weigh in after 5.5 weeks on this diet on 31 October 2014. I edited this post at the start of October as it made my thread make more sense, and basically all the posts prior to end of September are just recording failed restarts so if you want to follow it maybe skip that bit!!! I have a few occasions where I have to drink for birthday outings. These are: Week 2.5 11th October Week 5.5 1st November Week 7 13th November I really really hope that doesn't ruin things. But I will stay focused and remember how much work it was to get the weigh off. My goal is to reach somewhere between 8st12 and 9st7 and then hopefully I'll be able to exercise again so can maintain around there. This is a weight where most my wardrobe fits!!
