I first came across Minimins by searching for reviews on the Exante diet. The feedback on here was so fantastic, off I went to the website and spent £100 on the bumper pack. I lasted a day. I knew the diet wouldn't work for me, and it would have been likely that I would have put on weight. Fortunately I was able to see all the products and got my money back
Anyway, so that was a couple of weeks ago, and I've since put on 2lb :O I lost 1 stone last year, and I'm just a couple of lbs away from having put it all back on. Gutted.
I desperately want to get down to 10st which is now 2.5stone to lose. I'm currently at a point in my life where I don't know what's happening from September onwards. I went for an interview last week for a PGCE placement, but I am waiting to hear whether I got in or not. I'm not getting my hopes up. However, I would love to uni a lot slimmer than I am now, which means I have to act fast. If I don't get in, I will be returning to my job which will involve weekly swimming lessons (I work at a school). I certainly don't want to be in that pool looking like this!
I've decided that if I keep a diary on here, it might help me keep focused. I just need to be honest with myself, and if I cheat I need to admit to it.
So I've opted for good old fashioned calorie counting, and desperately want to stay between 1000-1300. My main problem at the moment is sugar intake. I've decided to give up Aspartame, which means everything I consume now has calories in. Being a diet coke fiend for many years, I've never had to worry about including drink calories in my daily intake. It's taking a while to adjust! I'm on Day 3 now of being Aspartame free.
Basically that's my story.
The plan - 1000-1300cals + 45 mins of Zumba on the Wii.
Start Weight - 12st 7.2lb
