Em's weight loss journey 2013
I've just completed my first week on the Cambridge Diet and thought I would start a diary on here to keep a track of things :)
I've been dieting and trying to lose weight on and off for most of my life and by Christmas 2011 had finally managed to reach my goal weight of 10st and was over the moon. But after a tough 2012 I have piled on the pounds again and find myself back at square one, which is extremely frustrating but whats done is done. Since Christmas I've been trying to get myself motivated to get back into healthy eating but it just wasn't working. So I decided to give the Cambridge Diet a go, even if to just give myself a bit of a kickstart. My start weight on Monday 25th Feb was 13st 12lbs, and my goal weight is 10st, so 54lbs to lose.
Week one was a bit up and down. Some good days, some bad days, some horrendous days. Some yummy shakes and some disgusting shakes. But I made it through 100% SS, 3 shakes a day and I have lost 7.5lbs when I weighed in this morning. Also did some quick measurements and I have lost some inches as well. I am really pleased, but just being at the start of a new week is quite daunting and I'm really really hoping these bad feelings go away soon because I'm starting to struggle a bit. Everyone seems to say they go after the first few days, but day 8 and I'm still not feeling right. I did a VLCD before and the horrible dizzy/headachey/nausea/hungry feelings never went away so I'm really really hoping its not the same again this time because that will make it really hard.
Here's to another 100% SS week :)
