    Hi all

    I started back on LL yesterday after loosing 8 stone before and prob putting back on 4.5.

    I am struggling with it so bad, i never remember my first few days being as bad as this!!

    I have really bad headaches and am feeling very sick - does everyone feel like this?

    Hi Lauren,
    I am due to start on Saturday after previously doing LL. I stopped carbs on Saturday to prepare myself and my headache was horrible!! Hang in there - you know it works and that's why your back!

    I have just gone back on Lighter Life. I lost 4 stones 4 pounds first time round and now have 26 pounds to lose this time round ( I have had a baby in between). I just can't seem to concentrate as much this time. I started back a month ago but it went badly so this is my last chance to get it right. I know I can do it as I did it before. I just want to fit into my clothes again!! I need motivation to stay on track.

    I lost the weight in 2009 and kept it off for 6 months then fell pregnant. I did the diet initially to help me get pregnant and to be more healthy during pregnancy as I had a miscarriage. I am so glad I did. I put 2 stones back on and have lost one stone but would like to lose more this time round.

    How are you doing? do you feel good about the diet?

    That's amazing that you achieved your goal! I previously lost 3 stone on LL but didn't do RTM then went back to eating as normal so this time I am going to fully commit to completing the whole thing and changing afterwards. I feel good today, had a wobble last night but am due to start on Saturday and can't wait!! X

    Did you go back to "EATING AS NORMAL" Louise?
    Or did you back to eating as you used to?
    Just a thought - it's not necessarily the same thing ;)

    Hi, i am starting back tonight. I did LL 3 years ago and lost 6 stone and after doingh well the first year started eating rubbish again and doing no exercise. Back up to the same weight again. Understand where and how it went wrong and a blood test this week has made me rethink so here we go again....

    BMI is 40.6.

    hi, I started back the other week,lost 11lb in my first week, but then went completely off the rails !!!
    I have done a lot of sole searching and I think what I am afraid off is succeeding, I know that may not make sense, but being overweight gives me a barrier and an excuse to eat, whereas being slim I have to work at it, and dont have that barrier anymore.
    Back on the wagon today, and looking forward and taking it one day at a time.
    good luck everyone.

    Hi scarycat, I think we all relate to the barriers and excuses we use, sabotaging thoughts.
    Well done for getting back on the wagon, it seems tougher for returners, but stick with it, you know it works, speak to your LLC, she will help identify trigger points and help you through.
    Good luck
