HI everyone! My name is Ally and today I'm starting CS. I've never done this kind of diet before - I've had success with CSIRO previously but I'm looking for a quick kick-start then I'll probably swap over to CSIRO around Christmas time.
I have 2 young children who I'm doing this for. I've always had a horrible relationship with food and I've decided that its time to get it right so my kids grow up with a good relationship with food. I am also scared of getting diabetes since I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with my first child.
I have to get some batteries for my scales today, but I think I'm somewhere between 110kg and 120kg. The other day I had a wakeup call when I had to buy a size 24 skirt. Wow - that hurt. I'm not so worried about numbers of kg's but about cm's that I lose. My ultimate goal is to fit into a size 12 again - but for now I'd love to get into a size 18 by Christmas. Not sure if thats going to happen since Christmas is only 6 weeks away - but I can try, right?
I want to use this forum daily for support, advice and encouragement. My husband is very supportive but I dont want to tell my family about this diet. Too many times have I tried and failed that I dont want to hear the 'I-told-you-so' anymore.
