Im back!

Postby Vegetable » Mon Apr 09, 2007 10:10 am

Hey everyone :D
Since my little whinge about my ex recently, I disappeared for a few days and had a nice little pity party for myself (eating all sorts of cr*p, no exercise, just sat around eating and feeling sorry for myself really, those damn easter eggs! :twisted: ) anyway, two days ago I decided enough is enough and went to see my gp about my weight and eating, etc. Well, he has recommended that I try Optifast (3 shakes a day and salad) for 12 weeks. He said that a break from worrying about which "good" foods to eat and which "bad" ones not to should be a big weight off my shoulders, and he wants me to get out their are concentrate on LIFE rather than FOOD. ( lol that will be a hard one! :D ) He also said that the weightloss should be quite significant, and get me over this binging cycle Im stuck in ) So, today I am starting Optifast, just having my first shake now :)
Anyway, I hope you all had a lovely easter and didnt go spastic on the choccie like I did :D ! Ill be back on tonight to reply to posts, cos Im on the run atm, cant wait :D I missed you all! xxxxxxx

Best of luck with it all! It might be a good idea to take the focus OFF food for a while, and just take the shakes and not have to worry about it...

Thanks ppl :D
Im not sure how long I can keep up Optifast, even if its only a week or 2 to kickstart then that would be great :D I do looooove the way I eat though (WW Core plan) so Ill be relieved to go back to that in the near (or distant) future :D

Welcome back Amy. :D Good to see you back at it, and rearing to go. I have a sister doing optifast, and she says it suits her, so good luck with it.

Glad to see that you are getting on with things after your slip up. Life is too short to sit around and eat, feeling like it is the end of the world, it is there to be lived to the full.
