    Hi, I am new on here. Not yet ordered my first bumber pack - have to wait until Friday/payday for that but hoping to start on Sunday if the next day delivery promise works out!
    Will do weigh in and set goals properly on Sunday but I estimate I have about 4.5 stone to loose to get back to a healthy weight. Have been sneaking on this site as inspiration and am feeling really good about starting this due to all of your stories! Bring on Sunday - but must remember not to eat and drink too much on Saturday night for my last meal!!!

    Well, having discovered they don't deliver on Saturday's I mentioned this to my Mum this morning. She has some spare CD pounches going so she is going to give me 6 to keep me going Saturday and Sunday until my delivery on Monday - so, looks like I will be starting on Saturday! EEEEKK!!!!
    Am cutting down on carbs from today in preparation - first weigh in with Mother will be Saturday morning!
    Very excited in a very perverse way!:D

    How do you get the tickerfactory thing set up - also, anyone let me know how to set up the signature thing with mini goals on it? Have dreadful cold - can't sleep so thought I might as well start thinking properly about realistic mini targets!

    Well, packs ordered this morning - picked up Tony Furguson (?) packs from Mum last night (not CD as I had originally thought) so we are going to start together tomorrow - which gives me 3 days to get into the diet before going back to work. Will weigh in tomorrow morning and then the fun will start there!

    Well, day two is coming to an end - was really hungry this afternoon so ended up having my soup by 5pm which means nothing more now until delivery tomorrow - DOH!! lets just hope he comes to me first in the day!!!
    Got to say though, the house is spotless, I've dyed my hair, had umpteen "beauty" treatments and now just going to have to keep busy until bedtime - maybe an early night - am actually really quite tired - I take it this is normal due to the low cal intake but still got up at 6am as usual this morning.

    Oh my god - I felt sooooo ill last night. Not sure if it was the cold making one last ditch attempt to kill me off but was watching Got to Dance and my vision kind of went a bit blurry (but only for a few seconds) then my tummy started making all sorts of weird noises. I ended up having to pass the baby to the hubby and went to bed not quite sure if I was going to vomit or pass out. And the coughing didn't help at all! Anyway, managed to sleep right through until 5.37 when babes woke up for a feed and feeling a whole lot better although my tummy now feels like a lead weight!
    Hubby was really concerned last night and told me to eat something but I resisted - am really happy that I didn't cave as had a sneaky weigh in this morning (I know, really naughty as only done two days) and goodness me, this really works!!! If that isn't motivation to keep going, I don't know what is!
    Anyway, will just keep an eye on feeling dizzy and rest more today - maybe the 3 hours of housework took more out of me than I thought - now there is an idea! Has anyone actually got away with claiming to be too weak to do the housework for the first month!!!

    Well Day 6 has arrived and still going strong! Hardest part of the working day I have found so far is walking through Kings Cross station in the evening and then sitting on the train for an hour smelling all those BK meals, and the cornish pasties etc but so far I just recalculate weight losses and goals in my head to distract me and to remind myself that it is cos of eating things like that that I am having to be on this diet in the first place and it seems to work! Hopefully in a few weeks the smell won't bother me so much. Anyway, looking forward to the first weigh in on Sat morning!

    Week 1 weigh in this morning ----------
    7lb loss - woop woop!!!!!!!
    Thats just over 10% of the total amount I want to loose in just 1 week!

    Have got to admit though - last night was the worst night for me. Fridays always are as I am in the habit of opening the wine, having loads of pizza/pasta and garlic bread to welcome in the weekend etc. But stuck to my mushroom soup - had an extra can of coke though but as far as naughtiness went, that was it!
    Am so pleased with myself for finally getting past a Friday without an end of week binge!
    Wasn't a happy bunny though when the hubby brought out the cheese and port - was a right stroppy cow for about 20 minutes!

    300 mile roadtrip yesterday to visit family - we passed a lot of Burger Kings and I didn't want one! Rather an achievement for me as BK's and road trips go hand in hand in this family!
    Sat through Sunday lunch at Grandma's with my bar and a coke zero and completely ignored the biscuits at father in laws house. Got home and didn't even want my soup but hubby insisted I have a third pack so brought me a strawberry shake and a bouillon whilst I was feeding the baby when we got back - bless him!
    Another sneaky weigh in this morning and scales going down at the right rate to reach target for bibsies birthday in 9 weeks time so all is well in the household today!
    Oh, and apparently my 20 minute strop over the stilton and port in fact lasted more like 18 hours according to the hubby!!! Not that I am STILL going on about that!!!

    Day 14

    Woke up feeling fat this morning - looked in the mirror and low and behold, I am still fat!!!! LOL
    Bit bored of the whole thing today - I know I will get myself to snap out of it but by golly I would kill for some bread!
    Ah well, just got to focus on WI day tomorrow and hopefully that will spur me on - now just fixated on the fact that I am half way to AAM week - that quiche and chips recipe posted has my mouth watering!
    Got a bit of a headache - now that is either cos have actually done some work today instead of re-organising the piles of paper from one side of my desk to the other or because I haven't had as much water this morning as I usually do, well, guess going to have to drink more and see if that solves it.
    Still had 3 people offer me their seats on the Tube this week so still looking preggers - there will come a time I guess when I will want a seat but no one will offer me one!
    Heyho, onwards and upwards. maybe this next title review will keep me distracted until home time!
    Hope everyone else is staying strong and positive!

    You're doing just great, tbh I found the two week mark a bit of a struggle, but yesterday and today have been better again. Keep focused on what is motivating you. It takes more than a fortnight to get fat, it's going to take more than a fortnight to get slim. Can you treat yourself to something today that's not food related? You deserve to be kind to yourself through it.
