Comments:

The eating thing is going ok but I am still dreading the weighing-in and measuring in 2 weeks time. Because I am so restricted in my movements … will I have lost some weight? Will I have lost an amount of weight that will have made all my efforts worth it?

Perhaps I am just too pessimistic, but I am so fearful of failing. I don’t want to spend the rest of my life 20 stone or even over.
