    Isabella's journey (taking the scenic route) to 9 stone

    Hi Everyone,

    I decided to start a new diary because I like reading other people's and I've realized I keep forgetting to log a couple of my food items each day and the calories will add up!

    9 months ago I was 13 st 5, now I'm 10st 13.5 and I'd love to be around 9 stone and a size 10.

    Oh also I have issues with binge-eating and find it very hard to get through a week without a binge and my calorie intake is usually quite high but I try to make up for it by exercising.

    Bella xx

    Hi Honey-J,

    I like your positive signature! is your goal 19th August for a special event?

    I've been losing the weight by Calorie Counting although I lost about half a stone with Slimming World to begin with. My weight had stayed around 12-13 stone for a few years until now so I'm feeling quite happy to finally be getting there but also a bit scared that I'll fall into binge mode and gain again (I can lose and put on weight quite quickly).

    I used a BMR calculator to work out the exact calories that I need per day and then deducted 500 cals per day for a 1lb loss week and 1000 cals for 2lb loss week!

    How are you getting on? Is the 5:2 going well?

So counting calories is all new to me , i start 5:2 tomorrow which I can't wait for now. 3 stones by August do you think I can do this?

    Im starting PT training on Monday exercising 3 evenings a week. Xx

    Definitely! It's really good to have something to work towards and Mexico sounds pretty exciting! Tbh if I ever go to New York I have every intention of eating my weight in doughnuts, pancakes and general junk too- I've never been to America but have family over there who say the portion sizes in restaurants are massive.

    If you set mini goals each week and do exercise that you love on your non-fasting days it should definitely be doable! Have you had personal training sessions before? I really like running so I just try to fit 15-40 mins in each day but I've got a new exercise bike so going to see if that helps my weight loss once I've put it up! (I have no DIY skills!).

    How's it going this week?

    Today's meals:

    Breakfast: (a bit weird!) - 310 cals
    Smoked salmon pate on wholemeal toast (protein + carb)- 180 cals
    Smoothie (2 of 5 a day) - 130 cals

    Lunch: 195 cals
    Carrot soup (1 of 5 a day so 3/5) - 117 cals
    Egg fried in Frylight spray (protein) - 78 cals
    Cinnamon tea (yum)

    Snack:
    red grapes - 69 cals (4 of my 5 a day)

    Dinner:
    (need to work out calories)Sweet chili tofu with egg noodles
    Stir fry veg (5/5 a day)

    Dessert: Apple- 45 cals + Cadbury Crunchie bar - 187 cals

    Yesterday I decided to bake and ended up eating 3 un-iced cupcakes- oops!! I still had my usual after dinner chocolate too! c la vie.

    Breakfast: Egg on toast with flora light
    Apple juice
    A banana
    An 0% Activia yoghurt

    Lunch: Smoked salmon on toast
    Cinnamon tea with honey

    will work it out in a minute but guestimate based on old Weight watchers points (60cal per point) = 630 cals so far

    Exercise: 5 mile run (est. 40 mins), walking- 25 mins so far, hopefully will go for an evening walk


    Honey-J, how are is the personal training going? do you have a diary?

    xx

    Ended up bingeing yesterday- had 3 iced cupcakes, a nesquik shake, a galaxy ripple, a crunchie, a few handfuls of marshmallows etc etc.!

    Today I've tried my best to avoid bingeing but still eaten a lot!

    Breakfast: Yoghurt and toast
    Lunch: Leak and potato soup. Smoked salmon & salad tortilla.
    Dinner: Haddock, oven chips, peas, carrots, broccoli

    Also went out for coffee and cake so had a skimmed milk cappuccino and a bit less than half of a piece of carrot cake- was yummy!

    This evening I've had cinnamon tea but will probably have some chocolate too.

    I ran for 32 mins, walked for an hour and popped into town so did a bit of exercise

    Hi Honey-J,

    That sounds like a good plan- how many calories do you have on feast days? I'm considering doing 5:2 to speed it up a bit. I've been quite bad for a week and binged 3 times! (the Very Hungry Caterpillar and I have a lot in common). Today I've been quite good, I've only really calculated a rough estimate of my calories using the old Weight Watchers points (pre-propoints).

    Today's food:
    Breakfast: Boiled egg on wholemeal toast. Glass of mango smoothie. 300 cals ish!
    Lunch: Smoked salmon (again!) on toast with a bowl of carrot soup. 300 cals (will work out exact cals in a min!)
    Snack: Red grapes and a cup of black coffee. (75 cals)
    Dinner: Four pieces of scampi with asparagus, carrots, broccoli (no carbs to leave room for pancake carb-fest) (need to check, think scampi= 240 cals + low cal veg).
    Dessert: Pancakes!!! (just about to make in a minute, we have nutella, cadbury's spread, syrup, sugar'n'lemons, ice cream, marshmallows, but I'm going to try to avoid having yet another binge. The pancakes will only be about 70 cals but a teaspoon of nutella is about 85cals!).

    How are you? did you have a nice weekend? Looking forward to reading your diary for inspiration!

    xx


    ps. ha, just noticed a typo- wrote 'via rather than vie' and had to go back and change it!!

    Wow, so jealous! 4lbs is brilliant. What do you usually eat on fast days?

    I'm definitely going to give 5:2 a try in a couple of weeks (it's my birthday a fortnight today so I'll probably start the day after!); I was thinking porridge, soup and salads for fast days? Also I was looking at the 5:2 site and it says that 500 cals for women is based on a quarter of the RDA 2000 cals per day but I'm thinking about doing 600 cals because my TDEE is closer to 2500.

    I have been weighing daily and recording it on Mondays but with so much binge-eating I've stayed the same for a week now, which is a feat in itself considering binge days are over 3000 calories. I'm really going to try to stick to 1400-1500 calories today and I'm hoping to go for a slightly longer run.

    How is your day going?

    Today's food
    Breakfast: Boiled egg with wholemeal toast and orange juice.
    Lunch: urrm well had a teaspoon of peanut butter and some smoothie
    Dinner: veg burger, bun, onion rings, salad (again!)
    Dessert: cherry pie (not my fault, someone handed it to me against my wishes and then it got eaten!)

    They were delicious! and massively high in calories once coated in chocolate and sugar- I planned to have two pancakes with a little bit of topping but ended up having five! so I had a 'stay-the-same' day yesterday, which is better than a full-on binge anyway! My major issue at the moment is with sweet food, I wish I could stop snacking and just stick to three meals and a dessert each day.

    How was your day diet-wise?
