im on day FIVE today.

(using diane) and about a week on differin. before i started diane i noticed my skin breaking out...especially on my neck and forehead-which was a good sighn because it means its cleaning out all of my skin. since ive been on diane i havent had any side effects...hopefully i wont get any and i havent really noticed a big change YET, today is the first day ive started giving up all milk products, not sleeping on my face(even when its really really hard not too) and drainking heaps more water than i used too(which is kinda making me sick) so im going to buy spring water...because its chemical free. im not allowed rto put anything on my face at all and im only allowed to wash my face with water...thats irritating me the most because my skins getting dry...and i dont wear makeup anyway so that bits ok. ive taken before and after pictures and i think ill post on here every week and take new photos every week

cheers, emz!

Yeah...ido get a bit discouraged sometimes, but my skins looking somuch better so i just think about it clearing up and not how long it takes......i aslo think about where id be if i didnt go to the doctors and my skin would be so much worse...

DAY 21

wow, my first packets finished already, i rsead on another site that 3 months nearly clears it all up so im so excited, because i cxan see the difference. i was going to getmy haiir done after my acne cleared up but i decided to get it done now, and it makes me look so much better, i cant wait till it clears up. ive been doinmg an hour on my excersize bike and 30 min A day of either yoya/pilates or arobice,so im not putting on much weight from the tablet. athgletics season starts soon so ill be more active then anyway. im also changing my diet, ive been having oats for breaky and getting up earlier to go running(even thpough its to cold so i dont)but when summer comes aroungd i will. well thats all.....thre days aregoing so quickl~!!!

GOD...its been ages and ages!! i dont know my last post but its like Dec 30th today. i went to the doctors yesterday an got my prescription renewed(this is my 7th packet) and i got another one for differin even though i dont use it. anyway i cant believe how well my skins improved...i mean i didnt even realise untill i saw a pic of me a month before i went on diane an SHIT! i didnt know it was that bad. anyway im sooo happy with the results, oits not completely clear but i dont have an pimples just redness, so if it doesnt improve anymore thanb this ill be happy. its amazing how confident its mad me and i just cant believe my progress. i got my hair done last week so im having a really good week. im just focused on loosing weight now...all the weight the pill made me put on(it was 15kg at one stage but is currently 53kg) not to mention im a 10DD bra size wen i used to be a 10A!! anyway im eating really health an excersizing regularly, im also wrighing myself daily and keeping a food diary, my goal is to be 47kg. i think thats reasonable but itll be hard because thats what i weighed nearly a year ago!anyway i know i can do it
