another week begins....

I have been on my diet for twelve days. I got weighed on Saturday and I have lost nine pounds. I am feeling very proud of myself! I am on a medically supervised VLCD ( very low calorie diet). The plan is called Lighterlife. I did a lot of research into it before I decided to do it. It is a big commitment and quite austere. The results are quick though and that is what you want when you have a lot to lose.
I am a serial bon viveur and now it is time to pay the fiddler. I do feel a lot better already, and look forward to a complete new wardrobe when I am too thin to fit into any of my current wardrobe.
Watch this space!
Off to Darlington for two busy days, and then my week three LighterLife class. Hopefully there will be lots of good news to report once again.

Gosh! that is an incredible weight loss. Well done to you for sticking to it, look forward to some before and after snaps. I must look into the Lighterlife, I have been dieting also, but not to much result. I am disadvantaged in that I am not as mobile as I was, and exercise other than walking is getting difficult, and walking is for short trips only. I remember the days when I used to be able to lose weight quicker than this, but that was when I was more able to be active.
Love Granny (*!*)

a serial bon viveur!! LOL
so THAT's what I am, now I know what to call myself. it sounds so much better when you put it that way.
good luck with it. and that's an amazing start. 9lbs. that's like giving birth, like 4 bags of sugar...
i think you are right to be austere to start, we need that instant gratification at first to get us going. well i do anyway.
good lass.
