restarting on wednesday, feeling very very nervous

:sigh:hi all

i have an appt with a CDC on monday evening and plan to start CD on weds as I have a work thing on tuesday and dont want to tell anyone I am on the diet until I have got through the first week at least.

I am feeling very very nervous about restarting

I lost 3 stones with CD last summer and went from 14,7 to 11,7

and have only put on about half a stone since but I am creeping towards that 12 stone mark and I dont want to go downt hat road, no way!

My final goal, I think is somwhere between 10 and 10,7 which is bmi 24-25 for me, so I would officially be healthy. So that is a potential loss of 1.5-2 stones (dont really know my weight at the moment as my scales like to trick me)

I think what is making me so nervous is the fact that many people were so negative last time, and also the fact that earlier this year i tried lighter life, My sis in law is a LL rep and gave me some packs, well i didnt make it past day 3 felt so crap and dizzy all the time.

I am so worried that will happen again and I wont be able to stick to it.

I dont want to be 12 stone anything, and I want all ym gorgeous size 12's that I bought to fit me again.

Any adivce, tips, kicks up the bottom gratefully recieved.

I am restarting on Tuesday after giving it up a few weeks ago (family problems and a holiday were my excuses to fail). I am nervous about it too but going to keep telling myself that I will never be a size 12 by Christmas if I dont do it ;)
good for you moo moo we can encourgae each other

i went today to see cdc and am starting weds as i have work lunch tomorrow and dont want anyone to know about the diet yet

i was less on her scales too so have 18 lbs to lose til goal (although that might change i guess
18lb isn't alot, some people on here have been loosing 14lb in the first week. Not me though, I like to take it slowly. I lost loads with LL two years ago, put a couple of stone back on. Started CD and am slowly but surley getting there. It's been a relief to have an excuse not to eat sometimes. You can do it. Good luck.
hi melh good luck and keep posting, we'll support each other.

14lbs in a week wow! Mind you with only 18 lbs to go and thinking it might not be that dramatic when i go next week. My cdc kinda hinted she expects me to start maintenance within the month though which is fantastic, might be nearly finished by xmas

I start tomorrow morning, 18lbs to go :D but main goal is to get through first week
Dear Gingernutlover (theres a hellavalot of carbs & cals in them),

Getting back on the diet is harder than starting the first time. I suggest that you focus initially on getting into Ketosis (ie; commiting to follow the diet for ONLY 3 days). By making that promise you have a visible & achievable target, after that you should have the incentive to continue to your goal. Let your counsellor know exactly how you're getting on, he/she should be very supportive. Its not luck it's determination to be where you want to be!
thanks, yes, you are right, one day at a time and knowing when i do get into ketosis i will feel much much better

my new cdc seems very supportive, she is a young mum like me and has said that if i feel the urge to eat, just phone her and she will talk me out of it. Some how knowing somone has made me that offer makes me feel more confident
