Hi :waves: My name is Shrinking Alice and I am fat. Yes, I am. Im not ashamed to say it, because I have to say it to change it. I have made a dint into my fat suit using VLCD diet but now I have to make a change due to my medical condition. I have chosen Slimming World to lose the rest of my weight and keep on shrinking. I started losing weight on 4th October 2013, at 23st 11lbs! From then until 31st Dec 2013 I lost 5 stone. in 3 months v.cool! I then got the news that I had to stop doing any VLCD and start eating 'real' food again as I have a chronic pain condition with degenerative disease of the spine and this means HIGH dose painkillers which have now gone up so high that I must eat regularly and sensibly. It was a blow at first and I "rebelled" and I have gained 1 stone back! in 12 days!! Not cool! So Slimming World here I come. I will be joining a group on Tuesday morning and restarting losing weight. I have been planning what to eat, when to eat and how to manage everything. Ive started organising a food/recipe/meal planner folder and its really getting me in the mood for actually eating healthy food and following SW for as long as it takes Hope to make new friends and maybe inspire people as I had been doing with VLCDieting. I USE OTHER SITES!!! And I use the same name on them if you want to find me!
