    hi

    today is my first day re-starting the CD, after reading soo many posts and blogs i decieded to join in with the threads and start my CD with MiniMins.

    i am going on holiday in july with a HUGE group of my girl friends and i am the only overweight person in the group (theres 19 booked so far) everyone is like size 8-14 maximum. i am a size 20/22 !!!
    i actually got infront of the camera on the weekend and wen i saw the pics i hated them (and to be honest wish i was so tempted to take my friends camera and erase them) of course becoz i am sooo much bigger than everyone!

    i do not want to hide on holiday and i kno i will not enjoy it the size i am! I WANT TO WEAR WHAT EVER I WANT !!!!! and not be restricted to what fits and is most 'slimming'!


    i want to be slim more than i want to eat!

    lotsa love and support to everyone doing this diet
    and congratulations to everyone re-starting ! we can be slim !

    Hi Tara,

    Good luck with your restart and you have good motivation there for your holiday in July and a couple of stone off between now and then will make a huge difference about how you feel both physically and mentally.

    It is good to have a before photo and to do your measurements from head to toe:) not forgetting the upper arms.

    I look forward to reading how you get on.

    Love Mini xxx

    Hey Tara

    Me and hubby are off to Malia on 3rd June. We've been before and absolutely love it.

    Hope you have a great time, and you should shift a good 3 - 3.5 stones by then!

    Hiya Tara... my goodness i could have wrote your first post....

    ok so.. you are in the right place girl!!!

    All i can say is this diet is sooooooooooooooooooo worth it!!!! I started april last year, aged 28, been overweight all my life (well as long as i can remember) had been on hols with my girlfriends the previous 3 years, all between size 10 and 14 and me a size 20 so have been there... but last year went a size 14/16 and it was truly amazing the difference....

    unfortunately i put the 4 stone i lost back on but as of yesterday i am back on track and am going on hols again in august and will get back to where i was and even more off.

    all i can say is it is sooooooooooooooooo well worth it... this diet is hard at times but the benefits far outweigh the hardship and it only really comes and goes!!!

    if you are looking for a buddy i'm here waving my hands and only tooo glad to buddy up with ya and we can do this together!!!!

    keep going girl its brill

    love

    Gen xxx

    Morning Tara .. you can do this ... you have a focus now ... one week at a time .. take photos, measurements, the works to motivate yourself the weeks when the scales are not being kind so you don't lose faith ... and you can be say (3lbs a week MIN ... in 14 weeks ... ) 42lbs down ... that's 3 stone - how fab would that be?? And that's a MINIMUM!!! You should really be more than that if you stick to SSing ...

    I actually went to Portugal for a week (week 5 of the VLCD) and I ss'd all the way... boy was it hard .. BUT I lost 6lbs that week which was worth each pizza/burger I didn't have!!! So I guess the question is how much do you want this???? Feel free to PM me whenever you want/need!!

    morning gen !!!!!!
    wow 8 lbs already - ur definately in ketosis now !
    i am putting off getting on the scale(hopefully till monday) just incase, if i dont see anything i dont know how i will respond to it......
    i am doing really good this morning tho thnx- its my third day too. i just got bak from swimming, i feel really good - i swam for half an hour knowing that i am most probably in ketosis and burning fat with each stroke.........

    i am weighing myself at home, coz of uni and work and the distance to my cdc i pick up my packs every two weeks on my way to london. how bout u ? do u go to a cdc weekly ?

    (off to uni now be bak in a couple hours)

    Well done on the swimming and day 3.... ok girl we are really going to do this and will be skinny mini's come our hols in the summer!!!!

    i have my official weigh in tonight with CDC and then every week. i'm putting away my own scales after weigh in cos i don't want to be hopping on and off them every day. i just know that i normally lose that amount in the first couple of days so just wanted to see it to inspire me!!!

    how are you feeling in yourself?? you feel positive??

    love

    Hello Tara.

    SOrry i havent posted sooner. meant to do it last night but got side tracked then was just too tired!!!

    Sounds like you are doing fantastic so far. You have a really good goal to aim for. I'm hoping to lose my weight for a big family holiday at the end of June. All the family is going and I want to be able to prance around in a bikini instead of hiding in my swimmin costume with a towel wrapped around me!!!

    Good luck and keep posting. We're all here to give you support and help!!!! x
