    Hi Team LL

    I am posting my expereince over the last week. For about the first 4 weeks of the programme I struggled every week to stay abstinent. This week I have re-focused and I can see the benefits of sticking to the plan 100%%.:party0011:

    - I am doing what I signed up to do when I started the programme

    - exercising and sticking to the packs has resulted in a good weight loss this week - will be confirmed Monday WI

    - doing this is going to get me to my goal more quickly which is what I want

    - a 22lb loss to date is definitely reflected in the comfort of my clothes and enabline access to others that were off limits

    - luvvin the increased feeling of fitness that I am getting from setting a 10,000 steps a day challenge and getting used to walking

    - feel included now that if someone asks what exercise I do I can smugly contribute as someone who cares about their health

    - pleasing my DH - not because of losing weight but because I am sticking to something and seeing it through which makes me more positive and better to be around

    - daring to think ahead to January where a sun holiday is planned and luvvin the thought of not being so self-conscious on the beach

    - looking forward to have a healthier relationship with food when that arises

    I am sure that there are more things that I could add but for the moment these will do!! I recognise that I am on day 40 and have 60 to go so I am guaranteeing to make every effort to stay in this frame of mind at least until tomorrow!!
