Hey, I am new to this so bear with me Firstly, a little bit about myself. i have underactive thyroid and have struggled with my weight as a result of this for years. The only diet I have ever done was WW and I lost 2 stone on it in 25 weeks, so slow weight loss. I then got to 14 stone and have stayed there for over 2 years. i go to the gym 3 times a week running 5 k atleast once a week, I eat healthily but nothing seems to work. I then recently had some external stress and it made me gain 1 stone in a week......even though I was eating the same stuff as usual I went to the doctors and my levels of levothyroxin went up. I am now on 100mcg everyday. So I have joined Cambridge in the hope I can boost my metabolism and finally get down to a healthy weight. It becomes really frustrating when you are eating health and excersising just to stay the same, so i can be disheartening and make you want to go on a massive binge...I mean, if you are going to be fat either way right?!
Today has gone well. I had a mint choc at 9am ( I usually eat breakfast with my son at 7am, but I wanted to try it later so I didnt starve of an evening) it was really tasty, i had this along with a peppermint tea and I felt full till 12ish. I have been sipping my 2.5litres of water throughout day. I have had 2 cups of balck tea also, which will probs take me to 3litres today.
For lunch i had the leek and potato soup, I had that at around 2 oclock. it was tasty, not amazing, but it was okay, id eat it again anyway.
I am now holding out till after 7.30ish for my dinner shake so once my son goes to bed I am not so hungry and cave.
How is everyone feeling atm? Is there any shakes, soups that you have hated? Do you think you can last the next 3 horrid days?it would be great to have a buddy during this for motivation and tips
