Urgh, right now I'm starving!!! I could chew my own arm off. So I think the only thing to do is head off to bed with a glass of water. Very rock n roll on a Friday night huh?
Day 1 completed
Bring on Day 2.....
Well done for getting through Day 1! It'll be WI before you know it!
Hmmph I did a silly thing this morning . I got on the scales... and I've put on a lb. Now I know that's a true reading because although I got weighed on Wednesday I ate carbs at the Christening on Thursday, so I probably put on about 4lbs (my usual after carb consumption). But it doesn't make me feel any better that I've put on a lb since my official weigh in .
Anyway from now on I'm avoiding the scales like the plague, I know it does me no good to scale hop , I've said this before, if I've lost a decent amount my resolve weakens and I feel I need a treat. If I've only lost a tiny bit, then I feel miserable and cheat. So the scales are the enemy, for at least the next couple of weeks.
Right, moaning aside. I'm onto day 2. I haven't had any shakes yet, I can't decide what to have. But I have had my first litre of dreaded H2O! I try to drink as much as I can in the morning. For two reasons really:
1/ I'm really not keen water and like to get it over with asap.
2/ I refuse to be getting out of bed to go to the loo on a night!
I also tested this morning and I'm not yet in ketosis, but I didn't expect to be yet, it usually takes me about three days to get back into the pink, so I'll try again tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
Right I'm off to get my first shake, think I'll just stick my hand in the box and see what I pull out. And I'm going to try really hard not to think negative thoughts about the 1lb gain!!!
Operation Showgirl - Feeling Downright Fed Up!!
Boo I've had such a horrible day today, not weight or diet related at all luckily, but I have struggled to avoid food the way I'm feeling right now.
First I found out that my credit card has been used fraudulently, I've not managed to get to the bottom of it but the credit card company are investigating and fortunately I don't have to pay for the things I can't identify. I'm always really careful when I buy things on line so I have no idea how this has happened. Luckily not too much has been spent on it.
Then as I went out this afternoon I put the back windows down in my car to let some air in and only one went back up. The other one is stuck down. Renaults are renowned for this and I only had this very same window fixed for the very same problem last June.
So I'm really cross about that. I've been in touch with the garage who have been lovely about it (private garage - dealership not so lovely). It's just so inconvenient. My dad bless him, has fashioned a new window out of perspex and duct tape to tide me over until I can get it back in to the garage. So annoying. It's not just the expense it's the inconvenience of it all.
I've been off all week and had it happened last Sat all would be sorted now, with ease. But as I'm back at work, poor dad has to take it in on Wed so they can look at it, and see what happens from there. I might have to take it to Renault, which is a nightmare as it's miles away from where I live. I'll cross that bridge when I come to it though. My work are so inflexible when it comes to things like this, I won't be able to get time off to sort it.
Sorry for that rant but what a horrible day. What I really want is a massive curry and a big bottle of wine, what I will be having however is a chocolate shake and a litre of water. Joy! I think it's safe to say I'm feeling pretty miserable today. I just want to cry.
As of 11pm last night I am in the pink!!
My obsession with the scales also extends to ketostix. I did 2 last night, and 2 this morning. I don't think they're the most reliable method of telling ketosis. I had a feeeling last night I was in the pink because I had the heating and fire on and my feet were like blocks of ice - a familiar ketosis feeling. So I just had to check!! I aso went on the scales and yay movement at last....I have lost 2lbs!! I won't change tickers or anything til after my official weigh in though.
Today I won't have much chance to feel hungry or think about food because I've got it into my head to paint the kitchen cupboards. They're cream and starting to look a bit tired, so I got my Dad to take me to B&Q yesterday and I've got everything reeady, Handles are off the doors, doors are in a pile waiting to be painted. To be honest I'm going to see how this looks but I might end up buying new door fronts instead - I'm not the best at DIY and Dad usually has to bail me out.
Later on is going to be the test - my Gran is going to my Mum & Dad's for Mothers Day tea, and I'm going over too, but Gran really doesn't approve of CD. She can't get her head around the idea of it and thinks I'm anorexic. So she's going to expect me to eat... I've already told my Mum that I'm going to say I had a big dinner, but I know she won't believe me. Aaargh, never mind.
Keep up the good work. Have a fab week.
Keisha xx WK 1 -
I've survived the Mother's Day tea! It was okay until Mum brought out a giant chocolate cake she'd made - I love her cakes so I made my excuses and left.
Anyway Day 3 is almost over and Day 4 is usually my danger zone (Danger Day). It's the day where I usually get on the scales and either a: there's a good loss and I'm happy and carry on or b: there's not much movement at all and I'm miserable and cheat. SO tomorrow I'm avoiding the scales at all costs tomorrow.
So far the motivated me seems to be hanging around. I'm really glad about that because I've really struggled for the past few months so it's nice to be finding it easy for a change.
I'm back at work tomorrow which is also going to be a huge test because there's always tons of chocolates and biscuits in the staffroom. I'm sure I'll be fine though.
I'm soooo hungry today, I've had to have an SS+ day. I'm in ketosis, so I know I shouldn't feel hungry, but I've been starving since lunch time. I think it's because I'm back at work and it's been really hectic and busy, so I figure I'd probably burnt more calories than I'd consumed. So when I got home I had some cottage cheese to try and kill the hunger.
At first I thought it was because I was thirsty, because sometimes that feels like hunger, but now I daren't drink anymore, I've had over 4 litres. Oh well never mind, I've got one shake left to have, hopefully I'll be okay after that. If not I'm going to head off to bed with my book and try not to think about it.
Looks like I'm going to make it through Dangerous Day 4 without a problem though, I even went to the canteen at work with the girls and wasn't even tempted when they all bought a cake. I had a coffee and enjoyed it. So I'd say definitely progress being made there.
I really hope I can keep this up, because I'm actually enjoying being this in control.

In a lot of ways Day 1 is the hardest, so feel proud you've made it through Day 1!! You'll be in ketosis before you know it. I'm looking forward to weigh in on Wednesaday - I'll be very interested to see what the official scales have to say.
I think put on about 4lbs eating at the Christening on thursday, but right now my scales are showing a 1lb loss according to last weeks weigh in. Who knows, I can't second guess myself, and I'll just have to wait and see. Next week will be more more true reflection as I won't have extra 'food' weight to shift.
I've had real mixed feelings about today. In the first instance I'm actually really proud of myself, not only have I managed to resist a scone, but M&S sandwiches and a choc muffin. A medical rep came in today bringing with her bribery and corruption. First she went on a scone run at coffee time, then she brought out the sandwiches and muffins. I can't believe I watched everyone tuck into all that nice stuff, while I had my choclate tetra. I'm really, really pleased with myself.
However, the scales are refusing to budge, I know I'm obsessing but I can't stay off them, I go on every morning. Usually when I'm doing CD I find it reassuring to watch the lbs slip away, but my scales aren't moving. It's gutting, I've tried so hard this week, and I'd love to have a big loss to keep me motivated, but that's not to be.
I'm not sure how I'm going to explain this tiny loss to my CDC tomorrow night because I'm sure she'll think I've cheated, because she knows me so well, and the weeks where I've had poor losses I have actually cheated a bit. But this time I've given it 100% and no cheats. I'm feeling really disheartened because I so desperately wanted to do well.
Luckily I'm still feeling pretty motivated or I'm sure this would've set me back, but psychologically it's not doing me any favours!! At this rate it's going to take me til my holiday to even shift this weight.
