Shmoo's LL diary..from the begining

I have always loved food, the problem is it's unhealthy to have such a fixation on it like I have over the last few years. I have secretly ate crisps and take outs for as long as I can remember, when I was younger and slimmer it didn't matter too much, but when I hit my 20's it all started to catch up with me. I have expanded into a size 20-22 recently and it's got me down in the dumps.
I have tried many slimming clubs, weight watchers, slimming world and Rosemary connoly. I have lost a few llbs on the plans but found that temptation was harder to avoid when I was constantly thinking about food and what I could eat. I found the plans quite confusing and often made slip ups because of it. Trying to make a life changing move was proving hard for me.
When I saw my old boss who had lost a massive amount of weight on LL, I kept it in my mind for a couple of months, flitting between yes and no to go ahead and do it. The biggest issue for me not being able to "eat" and not being in control.
When I made the choice to go and find out what LL was and met up with the councillor I realised I have not been in control for a long time of my eating and food is far from being a comfort which has always been my excuse.
I started LL on the 6th jan and am now 4 days in. The biggest problem I have found is not the physical hunger but emotional attachment I have to food. I often think , I deserve something nice to eat I've had a hard day, or let's have a treat and go out for a meal, but those ideas are out of the window and now I feel slightly alone!
Hopefully this is the beginning of my journey to change my attitude towards food, then maybe i can go out and feel good about my appearance one day! X

Good luck, shmoo, and welcome! Half the battle is starting to recognize emotional reasons for eating. Sounds like you're already quite self-aware, which will really help. LL can be difficult at times, but usually the difficulties are mainly in the mind, and your group will help you with strategies for overcoming them. Best of luck on your journey!

(by the way I was a size 22 when I started - or would have been if I'd actually bought the right size! Am now a size 12/14... You can do this!)

Shmoo, doing LL is life changing and by far the best weight loss program around! I'm absolutely convinced you will be successful. It looks like your head is in the right place. That's half the battle...
