Veggie Debbie & loosing those last few pounds.


Silver Member
In order to help keep me on track to get to my target, decided to do a little diary :D . Never done one before in my life so this is a new thing for 2007. LOL

Will probably bore you all silly, but if it helps collect my thoughts and keeps me out of the cupboards then all the better.

Just a brief bit about me... started Cd beginning of Nov after trying to loose weight on and off for as long as can remember. Did well on WW a few years ago but sadly put a lot of it back on and just couldnt get back into it.

Several things finally gave me the kick up the backside to do something about my weight and stop messing about, but final straw was holiday we had in Cyprus in Sept. Felt SO miserable and massive :mad: , hadnt had a holiday for years and was so looking forward to it but just couldnt enjoy myself as my weight was so on my mind. Vowed never again!!

Considered re-joining WW but the thought of counting points and standing in queues to be weighed just really didnt appeal to me. Wanted to do something totally different.

Happened to hear about LL on another forum (to do with guinea pigs :) , i have quite a lot of them..all rescue piggers). Started chatting to lady about LL and gathered information from there. to be honest I had never heard of either LL or CD before then. :eek: .

Found a lovely CD councellor down the road from me, got in touch and started the CD path as you know. Been doing ok since started, with minor blip for Christmas & New Year but back on it now. Am nearly at target, and totally in the right place to get there. Hopefully will be there by Valentines Day, setting that as a mini goal date. :D .

Currently on 790 plan.

Am a veggie so my choices are quorn, tofu and cottage chesse on this plan. Plus my CD packs.

Thought i would put down my daily menus (though perhaps they wont be very interesting :eek: :eek: :p ) but it will help me to plan my days. :D

Officially started back on Sun 31 Dec after being weighed by my CDC.
