Weighed in at 12st 2lbs on Saturday, hoping to be 11st 12lbs on Friday 1st Feb which will leave me with 19lbs to lose to reach my goal of 10st 7lbs.
I'm aiming for 1lb a week and hope to be at my goal sometime in June.
I definitely believe that i can lose this 4lbs in my first week as we all know you can lose a lot of bloat and water weight when you stop eating rubbish.
I have flitted around with SW lately but i can't get my heart fully into it. The most i have lost on that plan is just under 21lbs but i have reached my lowest weight, and enjoyed losing weight the most with CC. I think it's that little bit of extra freedom that you have with CC (although i do love SW when i am in the right frame of mind for it).
I have issues with binge eating (i'm not talking a few bags of crisps...i'm talking 8lbs on in a week sort of bingeing), so i need to keep my calories high and weight loss slow to give me the greatest chance of success this time around. Once i get into it i lose weight great, i just struggle to keep it off, however this is something i am more mindful of this time so will hopefully manage it.
Anyway i have stuck to 1200 calories since Saturday and will do so for another 2 days, then i am considerably upping my calories to approx 1650 so that i am cutting out 1750 calories over the week (1/2lb loss), and i will be aiming to burn the other 1750 calories by exercise (another 1/2lb loss). I have bought a heart rate monitor to make sure that my calories burnt are as accurate as possible, and to safeguard my 1lb loss every week.
I can stay at 1200 calories for another 2 days, in fact i have been quite comfortable eating those calories but i think it's only because i know it is short term and it will be risky for me to do it any longer unless i want to start bingeing again at some point.
Anyway i am logging on MFP (which i loved the last time i CC'd) and will post my food for the last 4 days.
Looking forward to getting to know you all xxx
