    Hi :)

    The good news is that my doctor signed my forms wooohooo!!! :D So I can now officially start CD in the next couple of days!!

    The really, really bad news is that she weighed me and I am significantly heavier than I thought I was :cry::cry::cry: 156kg (24.5stone!) to be exact :( :( :( I'm so upset and ashamed :(

    Paula!!

    OK so you weigh what you weigh!!!
    And???

    Ok it might have been a shock but just think this is the last time you will ever weigh that much....
    You are going to be slim!!!!

    Arm yourself with all the motivation you can.... Don't be ashamed of yourself! Be proud that you have taken control of your situation!!!

    Well done!!

    It won't be long before you are posting your amzing losses!!!

    Say goodbye to it now - that's the last time you will see that number!!! It's only a number and that number will get soooo much smaller so quickly and you too will be as excited as everyone else and feel so much better about yourself.
    Good luck with the start and can't wait to see you posting fab losses.

    Hey well done Paula for taking these steps! This diet, in my opinion, is brilliant and given that at times it can be hard, means that we all stick together and help each other. I am still getting to know people here as it's only my second week on the diet but I have to say that the people here have been 100% behind me and all of us behind each other.

    Go Girl!!

    I can't wait for that day Tilly! I'm just about over the shock of the weight now.. it was just unexpected. I mean, I thought it was around 22st and that would have been bad enough. Anyway, it's done now, and it can only get better from here. XX

    Absolutely fabulous welcome and good luck with your first week only advice i can offer is take it day by day dont look at the bigger picture dont think oh ive got X amount to loose i weigh this much look at it like id like to drop a dress size for such and such occasion find an event in the near future to aim for make realistic goals and work towards them it doesnt matter where you start its where you finish and how your going to feel when you get there that really matters best of luck x

    AbFab, it's not what you wanted to hear I know but you have heard it now and you know... and already you are taking steps to change it. Better to know the truth and work from there than to kid yourself... I have been too good at self-delusion for too long. You are setting out on a big journey so celebrate that... little steps, but every one leads you closer to your destination. You can do it, honey. Hugs.
