    Hi Everyone

    I hope Santa was good to you. Ive had a wonderful time over Christmas, it was very busy but lots of fun!

    Unfortunately all my good intentions went out the window. I'm not beating myself up and I know where I went wrong. I let all those lovely strokes people have been giving me go to my head. I also had a few nights out with drink so justified my eating to line my tummy and to get over the hangover. One night out or one meal just snowballed. I havent been as bad as I could have been but I know I have gained weight. I dont want to go on about it becuase I enjoyed christmas and am 100% focused on reaching goal in feb some time. i have to say i have learnt so much about my eating habits and I was not as bad as I could have been and wasnt picking on things. It was mainly booze and dinners.

    I have my last foundation meeting tmrw night. So will be getting weighed then I will have a lcear number of how much I have to lose to get to goal. I am going on to developers and looking fwd to it but very nervous!!! I will be joining the valentines challenge as soon as I know the damage from my christmas lapse.

    So now my rebilious week is behind me and I am so glad to be back to LL. I missed you guys and I missed my soups!!

    Also just want to say to everyone who stuck to it over christmas well done!! Im proper proud of you all. Its a tough time to do any diet let alone a VLCD so well done!!!

    Love to you all!!

    Hi Emzski! Well done with getting back on the wagon straight away and for identifying how much you have already changed on your journey so far - physically and mentally!

    I too am hoping to reach goal some time in February - so we can support each other in this - the final countdown!

    Good luck at your final Foundation meeting - hope the damage isn't too bad... I've got mine on Tues, dreading it - but, like you say, I'm not beating myself up about it... I'm back on track and feeling great about getting through to RTM and being a LL success story and not a drop out :)

    Anna xx

    Welcome back on board Emski

    You'll be fine. Everyone who has comme onto MMs since Christmas and talked about lapsing is tuned in to their triggers and reasons for eating/drinking over the last week or so.
    I'm sure it's all to do with the awareness and we know ourselves so much better now than we did last year at this time.
    That can only be a good thing and empowering for the future.
    Good luck for 2009 everyone and that includes YOU if you arelurking and looking and trying to decide whether to do LL in the New Year or not.
    Come and join us - WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE?
    It will change your life - if you let it.

    Thanks everyone.

    I had a lovely christmas with my family, fun nights out with my friends and although I know ive gained some lbs well it was worth it. I know ill lose them again and I am seeing LL right thru to the end. After I reach goal im doing RTM. It would have been alot better for me to stick to it through christmas but as LS the world didnt end cause I ate.

    Im glad to be back on my shakes and water though. Gosh my body didnt like a lot of things I used to love. I have learnt loads from LL and I know I still have a long way to go so have even more to learn.

    My first goal of the new year is to get rid of whatever ive put on. Then its time to knuckle down and get to goal!! Come some point in feb Anna we will be there at goal and enbarking on RTM!!
