Unworthy to be called a WeMITT!?

#1
Hi Ya

I came on here a while ago and was going to do the world and all. I thought that CD was a brilliant idea and contacted 2 counsellors in the NI area. Neither counsellor got back to me until over a month after I called and when I had no money. My idea was that since I was moving to a new appartment that I just wouldnt buy food in at all. I would have the cupboards bare and just have my shakes or soups or whatever. But of course the calls came when I had already bought in food and stuff as well as having no money. The crux of the matter is that I have only lost 2lbs in the last month and a half. I am just feeling deflated and demotivated. I have been watching what I eat and dont have biscuits in the house at all (apart from ones my fiance likes but I dont like). I would love to do CD but I feel that if thats what the counsellors treated me like before I start then what will they be like when Im on the thing.

I guess Im just looking advice, motivation etc. I havent even felt like I belonged to the site or was worthy of posting for the last while. I have been reading other peoples posts but I guess I just need to break my silence and take it on the chin. I know that I sound like Im makin excuses because thats what Im telling myself. 'shut up claire, ur makin excuses' 'shut up claire our a fat lump and a greedy one at that' but I really truely have been making an affort when I analyse it. Switching sandwiches for salads and not snacking, drinking more water. I must admit though that this goes out the window when i go home for the weekend because my mum treats me like I havent ate a bite the whole time I have been away and keeps telling me that I must be starving myself because I have lost weight and Im like 'yeah mum I probably lost an ounce this week but your gonna be sure that I have put a couple of lbs on to replace it before I leave' lol.

Im actually sounding a bit mad arent I?

Stop analising the situation, the cd rang you (all be it a bit later than you would have liked) if you still want to give it a go try to find the money from somewhere (even if you have to save for a couple of weeks) it doesn't cost much more than a food shop, and then make sure you stick to it, it will help you feel good about yourself.

Good luck

Sweetheart, stop beating yourself up! You have lost weight ok its 2lb but thats still 2lb in the right direction, and without the benefits of vlcd, and the comfort of ketosis! I know that it seems like a lot of money to begin with but it actually saves you money in the longrun, so could you maybe get the money together over the next week or two?
Maybe your councellors were just on hols or something and once you are a customer you will probably find them more attentive, or can you find if there are any other cdcs near you (there are new cdcs qualifying all the time so maybe a new one will have set up business nearby recently) Whatever you decide to do whatever eating plan or diet, you are not a failure you want to address your weight issues and you are here taking the first steps, you will be just fine, try to give yourself a bit more credit hun, you are worth it!!!!!

Keep posting and don't be a stranger to the site (getting the right support is half the battle you know)!

Hi ya

Thanks guys for the support. I really need to do this because Im getting married next year!! I really want to show those ppl who have always seen me as chubby bubbly tubby claire, that Im a person and not just there for their entertainment. Why is it that people expect fat ppl to be the life and soul and to keep others entertained. Why dont we have a license to be 'not in the mood' once in a while?

Anyways thank you for your help because you have helped me! :) Now all I have to do is find the number of the nearest CDC again and get on the wagon.
