    Boot Camp Diet

    Thanks mistysj - I definitely need more of those in place of "food hugs" xoxo

    Boot Camp Diet

    I am trying this Daisy, I've gone seriously off the rails recently. My Dad died and wine and chocolate have become staple foods for the last 2 months I'm ashamed to say. I need a kick in the rear and hope this will help me get back on track.

    What makes someone a veteran?

    Cool, I'm a vet! I'm 14 months out and have lost 40kg or 88lbs. My hair is still thin although it is growing back in Patches, and I'vefallen off the wagon somewhat recently- been going through some hectic emotional family stuff and NOT eating how I should. However, I've not put on- just stayed the same. I need to lose about 10 more kgs to be at my desired goal, and I really think I'll do it. I'm exercising which is good but finding it hard to channel the emotional stuff into non- food based outlets just at the moment. Anyone else battling a bit like me? Sent from my iPad using VST

    How is your water tasting now?

    I've gone off Water big- time since surgery. It has to be flavored for me to drink otherwise I'm nauseated. The least offensive chemical-free version for me is water that has steeped overnight with cucumber, mint leaves, lemongrass and lime. I don't do this a lot (I admit to too many diet cordials!) but it is very refreshing when I do. Sent from my iPad using VST
  6. I had an appointment with my gynecologist where she discussed the risk factors with fertility-related cancers ( which run in my family) and she used the words "morbidly obese" in relation to me. She basically said that my weight greatly affected the chances of me going the same way. She was quite straightforward and unflinching as well as being entirely professional. It was a sobering wake- up call for me and I've never looked back. Sent from my iPad using VST

    Oh, the shame.

    Hanging my head and admitting I had ice- cream and choccies today too! However it was NOTHING like the oceans of junk I used to eat. Back on the wagon! Tally Ho! Sent from my iPad using VST
  12. You look fab but you are obviously young with lovely springy skin. I'm a darn sight older and my WL has meant I have a "wattle" neck, my naso- labial folds ( the lines running from edge of nose to edge of mouth) are WAY droopier, and even my eyelids seem saggier. My older and less collagen and youthful- plumping- goodies skin will not snap back anywhere near as well as yours has sadly. That said, I would not trade this for my old bum and jiggly bits in a million years! Sent from my iPad using VST
