    week 2 was rocky to say the least, struggled badly in the evenings and kept picking at food, managed to somehow lose another 2.5 pounds (even tho was totm) so thats 10 pounds gone so far!!! gave myself a stern talking to on monday nigt and the past three days have been good.
    My boyfriend proposed on Sunday night...very sparkly ring lol... so thats really given me something to aim towards, want to get married next year so we can start a family and I want to be a down to a size 10 with a normal BMI , currently im in 16's now, so i have a long way to go and my PCOS doesnt help much when it comes to losing weight!!
    anyone reading please feel free to leave any comments or thoughts!!
    well here go's week 3...

    This will really spur you on now. One of my biggest regrets is not loosing more before I got married.
    I also have pcos and the weight is slow to come off but it does come off with this diet.
    Good luck and keep us posted on how you do?

    You're welcome for the encouragement that's what we're all here for :) . That's good that you've kept the weight off it is a concern of mine when I finally get it off. Well August 2011 or 2012 gives you plenty of time, have you got a set amount you want to lose?

    yep im aiming to lose 65.5 pound in total to reach 10 stone, very daunting when I think of it in pounds but has to be done! I was eating lots of fruit, veg and meats since getting home and ive been walking alot so thats what stopped me gaining but my resolve was starting to slip the last two weeks so im glad im back on cd's and therefore back in control :)!
    You've had amazing loses so far, well done!!!!!xx

    It's great that you are taking action now, rather than letting things slip. I'm sure you will do well. :)

    went for a walk dis morning, im maken the most of the nice weather before the rain and misery of winter decends on ireland :), then il be joining the local gym which im very excited about, im slowly developing an exercise addiction haha hopefully by the end of my cd journey it'll have replaced my food addiction...anyway thats enough of my rambling, here's hoping for a brilliant day 3!!!xx

    I'm glad it's going good.

    I find that adding extra water to some of them is a good idea, especially a hot cappuccino. ;)

    Make sure you stick to moderate resistance/weight training at the gym. A certain amount of cardio/aerobic training will most likely slow down your losses.
