Well done on your 10lbs hun and keep up the good work!

I've been doing CD for 5 weeks now and love it! I love cooking for the family still and dont ever get tempted by food....i do forget not to lick my fingers though sometimes so i mentally slap myself for that still! lol.

When the trousers feel loser and the weight keeps coming off, you will wonder (like i do) why you didnt do this before!

I am exactly the same, I will believe it when I see it. I plan on sticking to SS for at least 3 months, so 3 stone in 3 months?! Its hard to believe but I will be majorly impressed if I achieve it!!

Hiya Mrsessex

This is truly an unbelievable way of losing weight and gaining soooo much - in confidence that is!!

i wish i had done this years ago as i realise how long i have been feeling so crap with myself and now i feel so much better about myself and have some self worth. Took till i'm nearly 30 but i have done it!

The results are amazing - i lost 11lbs in the 1st week and have now lost 4 n half stones. When your trousers start feeling loose and getting (what my husband so kindly calls it) a 'baggy arse' (bless him!) its brilliant - also great excuse for new clothes. ALthough i have been bargain hunting on ebay and charity shops until i reach my goal!

Good luck and this is the best thing you will have ever done! xx:)

Awww thanks for the replies and inspiration :cool:

Im 32 years old and have only ever done ww before and since giving up smoking in '04 i have put on ..... 5 stone :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek: was slim up until then :confused: have been sooooooooo tempted at times to start smoking again :eek: but then STOP myself lol

I WILL do this and have so far no probs with the 'no food' thing as i want this SO badly. Need to get back to 11 stone and i'll be happy as larry (who ever he is )



Keep on trying

Mr Essex - since giving up the fags 5 months ago I have put on 2.5 stone - I smoked for 20 years and it was making me really ill so I thought it was the lesser of two weevils.

Now that I have got the smoking licked (although I did that with Zyban) its time to tackle the 8+ stone too many that I carry around with me.

I am hoping this diet will work - but realise the only person who is responsible for that is me - just like with the smoking. I have discovered this steely determination "sod em" approach since I gave up the dreaded weed - manly I think because so many people said I would never manage it I wanted to prove them wrong

As I have been at least 5 stone overweight most of my adult life I had always just accepted that I was big and couldnt loose weight. Having read all the lovely peoples comments/blogs/histories on here - I can see that anything is possible if you want it badly enough - so heres hoping you get your 76lb off as quickly as you would like


Keep on trying
