    Hiyall...

    I just wanted to say, that if you're finding it tough going...if the not eating thing is driving you up the wall - if other people are wafting temptation your way and your breath smells and you only lost a 1lb this week...well - this is my 2nd long term attempt at a VLCD (with two short lived attempts in between) I whinged, I moaned, I went out for dinner, I made up excuses...I had a hard time too. I got fed up of everyone saying that I'd put it all back on and they'd told me so and then I thought...'You know what? I did it before. I can do this again. Do I want this enough to put myself throough all that again?' My mum saw me the day before I started and she said 'How long before you come off it this time?' And I said '5 months' back then I wasn;t sure...didn't even know if I could get through the first two weeks. Oh boy I fought and had to trick myself into it.

    But here I am at Day 115...I'm not too proud to say that I screwed up the first time. But that's never the be all and end all - you can keep doing this till you get it right.

    This is how happy I am today. It was taken at about 6.30pm - all I had had to eat all day was a peanut crunch and a billion cups of Earl Grey. Do I look unhealthy? Tired? Washed out? Wasted? Hungry?

    No...I look like ME!

    Keep going and whatever you do - be you.

    Thanks Carla...I think I'm a bit of a Sergeant Major 'Shut up and get on with it YOU'RE NOT HUNGRY! I DON'T CARE IF YOU ONLY LOST 1LB!' - but hey - that works for some people ;) There are plenty of lovely gentle people around for that kind of support!! - Gawd you're so skinny nowwwww...It's nice to have you there that couple of months ahead of me to give me something to aim for...

    Timsmom - I love your avatar - as a child my mum would buy me Mr Men books instead of sweets. Problem is now I have my own money I buy books as well as sweets ;) - stalk away all you like - I'm a performer, I love having an audience :)

    Elaine - that's lovely of you to say...thank you.

    Lil legs - darn right lady we can all do this! - if I can fall off the wagon 3 times and get right back on it, so can anyone. I'm a proud proud stubborn old cow and it took me ages to admit to Minimins I'd screwed right up - but hey - look at me know!
