    I really hope this is the last time I diet and its about time i learned to eat properly - for goodness sake i am 46. Was overweight as a child, the only one in family of eight. I got teased alot at school, at home and didn't have many friends. When i was 18 i went to college and discovered alcohol, men and partying and the weight fell off till i was about 29/30 when i married and then had two children. For the past 15 years I have been up and down from 9 to 12 stone using vlcd, weightwatchers, and many more. The vlcd worked well but ofcourse when I came off them i put the weight back on. For the past two years my weight has spirralled out of control - I was diagnosed about 18 months ago with rheumatoid arthritis, the lack of activity and steroids have helped towards the massive gain. I am now 14 and half stone, the half probably went on over Christmas as i did nothing but eat. I would like to go on another vlcd but unfortunately it doesn't mix with the drugs that i am on. I got diet chef about 3 months ago and just couldn't get myself sorted enough to start. I think i am in a better frame of mind, i am rested with a week off work and the weight is making the pain i have twice as bad so it is now a necessity to get rid of the flab.

    Hi there,

    Just ordered my first batch so will be starting in a couple of days when it arrives - hope you haven't found the first day too awful (and if you have, don't tell me!!)

    Hey there Mads,
    Good Luck!
    I have just started diet chef today after trying weight watchers, slimming world, and several VLCD's, I've lost 2 stone over the past year but seem to have slowed down massively, and started to get back into bad habits, breakfast and lunch so far, seems ok, I have friends who've done well on this so fingers crossed.

    Hi Dare-bee it was quite nice, don't feel so apprehensive today. It is nice food I didn't take the snacks either today or yesterday, saving them til i feel I really need them.

    I did pretty much the same, figured if I didn't stay up late I couldn't snack.
    How's today going for you? I definitely feel like I'm eating healthily, not all stodgy and bogged down from too much food. I nanny though and cooking for the children is driving me a tad mad...


    Keep smiling,
    Siobhan x

    Hi Mads x here to subscribe as I started diet chef today will also start my own diet chef diary on here I have been on mini s for a while and always found the support very helpful I do have a diary in the silver members and the quandary is to restart that or start afresh on here ?
    I want this to be the last time I diet as I have tried everything I got ill with shingles in August last year and the rest of 2012 was a downwards spiral :-( so here s to a great 2013 x

    Hello Katie i am now on day 5, well basically finished eating food for the day i did have a really large salad for lunch with my soup and a little couscous so hopefully not enough to make much of a difference to my calorie intake today. I too want this to be my last one. How are you getting on with diet chef?

    I am committed to four months as well, had a bit of a wobble this morning, woke up really hungry and the cereal didn't hit the spot. I had my snack early and then an apple but i was still yearning for something sweet so I ended up getting a bottle of diet coke. Also i started into doing a clear out and got my daughters rooms spotless.
    Re your own diary why not start one on here - i have started a private blog just to record food that i have eaten. To be truthful i am not sure, would you feel better if you think this is starting anew or a continuation of your previous diet. If the former start a new one.

    Thanks mads I will start my own diary on here as it is a new fresh start for me :) I also had a hungry moment this afternoon so occupied myself by dyeing my hair and then had veg and the tuna pasta meal for tea. I have liked everything I be tried so far and am making notes of what I really like so I know what to order next month . :)

    This is my 10th day and i did binge out today, was out of my normal environment was surrounded by lovely stuff and something just went i will eat this and this and this. Annoyed with myself and scared that i will not be ok tomorrow. The good thing is that i came on here, i wrote down everything i ate so that is a different thing than before. I will keep to this. I don't want to undo my good work, I will be 9.5 stone again.
