Telford Buddy?

Hello Missloco

I'm in Telford :) but not much use to you as a buddy as I'm now a CDC and so no longer actually doing the diet, but happy to give you any support you want/need.

Myfi and MammaCaz are both local (ish) although not actually in Telford if you want to give them a shout.

Take care

I'm looking to start exercising again but finding it hard. Could i ask how much you have lost and in how long. I am finding the last 21 pounds a struggle i keep stopping and starting, but i need to get on with it. I just crave carbs

I lost 3 stone in 3 months, but I did stick to it rigidly, I got to my goal last April and so have now maintained for a year which I'm thrilled about.

Are you still SSing? It can get very hard when you get closer to the end as it's difficult to hang onto the motivation you had at the beginning, but you just need to stick with it and know that if you do it won't take much longer to shift that last bit. Great idea if you can get involved with a challenge & have a buddy to support you.

All the best

I have not done ss i have been on the 790 plan and lost 15 pounds in 5 weeks.

I need to ss source but can't get in the right frame of mind. I guess i just need to plunge into before my holiday. Has the weight stayed off? My biggest concern is it coming back. Did you exercise also?
No I didn't exercise at all whilst I was SSing, and don't do loads now but am trying to do more and have recently joined a gym. I've managed to keep the weight off, apart from a few pounds that go off & on through eating carefully, occasional CD packs & now exercise too.

Your counsellor will help you when you get to maintenance about the best ways of keeping the weight off and are there quite a few of us on the forum that have kept our weight off - so it can be done :)

It's just about finding that motivation again and getting back into it, try and use your holiday and think about how great you'll feel when you get to goal and how good you'll look in your brand new holiday clothes.

I am in Madeley.

My brother started the diet 23 and half stones st the beginning of February. He is now 18.7 stones. The diet definetly works you just need to stick at it and stay motivated. ( i have lapsed the last few weeks but trying to regain focus)

My CDC is Jan aka MadamDotty on this forum.
She is great and very supportive and made me carry on during the times I wanted to quit. Short of giving the packs away for free (hehe) I think she is how all CDC's should be. And everyone on here can see she is supportive to all and a nice person. Ill be passing her details on to fat friends who are interested in losing weight (most of my friends are the annoying eat pies and drink copius amounts of booze and still lose weight type of people). Will have to work out a commission deal with her (only jkin lol) ! :)
Mine it Katie Price she was Cambridge slimmer of the year 2006 and i have to say she is absolutley fantastic and so supportive, i couldn't do this without her.

Speaking about Telford anybody know of any jobs going locally withing a service delivery/ customer support environment?
Hiya Kaz

It's great having a few Telford peeps on here :) I'm just up the road from you in Shawbirch, just off the Shawbirch roundabout, I'll wave to you :D

thank you for you lovely words myfi and for being a great client too :D

My counsellor was Katie too, what a very inspirational lady she is that's for sure.

Lovely to meet you all - hope you all come along to the next Birmingham meet, the last one was fab :D
