Operation Transformation! Sarah's CC'ing diary.
So I've decided to start this diary to track my progress and make myself accountable for every single thing I eat. I lost 3 stone about 2 years ago on a vlcd but put it back on slowly but surely and am back to 12 stone (I'm 5"1). I've yo'yo dieted for the past 2 years with very little success so Ive decided not to cut out any food group completely and stick to 1400 calories per day by using a calorie counting app on my phone. Tomorrow I'm joining a gym very close to where I live and my plan is to do 3 sessions of HIIT per week and 2/3 sessions of running on the treadmill or using the crosstrainer. I'm also starting to think about starting a family with my husband and so I would love to be at a relatively healthy weight if that happened. I wont always post what I eat on here as Im tracking it on my app but I'm going to lash down what I plan to eat today and also the rest of my goals. I really really hope I get to goal and don't give up as I've been feeling like a right old failure for the last year or so. I would be so proud of myself if I got to a healthy weight without completely starving myself of food and still being able to enjoy a treat - such as the odd (or often) glass of vino, chocolate, a sunday roast dinner which I am a complete sucker for.
B'fast: Protein bar (153 calories) and coffee with a small splash of low fat milk (14 calories) = 167 cals
Lunch: 130g of smoked salmon (190 cals) with 30g goats cheese (97 cals) and cherry tomatoes x 8 (24 cals) = 311 cals
Dinner: Prawns provencale: 100g prawns (60 cals) with low fat tomato sauce (87.5 cals) and 100g cooked basmati rice (141 cals) = 288 cals
Total: 766.5 cals (700 cals left over for snacks if am hungry - I know its bad to eat too little so will definitely eat more than what Ive planned).
Current weight: 12 stone
Goal weight: 9 stone
Weight to lose: 3 stone
Goal weightloss rate: 2 lbs per week
Time to get to goal: Hopefully 21 weeks (5 months - which takes me to the 24th of August 2014, just in time for our summer holiday :)
Exercise goals: 5-6 times per week with Sunday off (or if Monday has been crazy busy, take Monday off and do Sunday instead).
W.I. day: Saturday (or if travelling home for the weekend weigh in on Friday morning instead)
