    To health and hapiness

    Hello! I want to lose 5 stone, and know that the only thing between me and my goal is me.

    I finally feel like I deserve to be happy and to look good, and not just have an acceptable figure, but a nice one that I'm proud of. I want to enjoy buying clothes, enjoy a chance to dress up, and not feel embarrassed for my boyfriend to be stuck with a woman like me. I want to look like the girlfriend he deserves to have, not the one he puts up with.

    So far the diet is going well (day 2), I'm starting to tolerate black tea and next Monday, when I'm fully in ketosis I plan to start swimming daily.

    Here we go!

    (Again, but shhh)
    "If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up!"

    Next goals:
    Get into size 12s (very nearly!)
    Get under 13 stone DONE!
    Get under 13 stone at the end of the day, fully clothed. DONE!
    12 week mark! DONE!

    First 12 weeks

    Week one DONE!

    I've been wide awake for an hour. I don't want to get up, cos there's nothing I can do without waking everyone else up, too dark to take a dog out and because I'm on day 3 now I wanted to take it easy to get into ketosis as smoothly as possible. I might try to sleep again.

    I actually don't feel hungry, fingers crossed I'm headed into the zone and it's not a fluke!

    hey there it does sound like your in the land of ketosis now. one thing you can end up with funny tastes in your mouth. its well worth investing in a mouth spray so you have something on the go for sorting your breath.

    one of the other girls was saying how if your multi tasting ie watching tele and doing a puzzle( im now addicted to just about every fb game going!) it really helps stop the cravings for food. and i ve found it pretty helpful.

    anyway have you all have a great fat busting day

    I can't give in to Candy Crush, I'll lose my life to it!

    So far today has mostly been dizzy and weak. I've stayed in bed for a lot of it, put some coat hooks up and scrubbed the yard but nothing else. I'm allowing myself a lazy day though because I won't have the opportunity when I'm at work tomorrow.

    My swimming costume arrived, it fits. It's quite flattering too, so the swimming will start as soon as ketosis kicks in. The thought of being in a swimming costume in public terrifies me, but not as much as the alternative does. Eep.

    your best to stick to bed when the Cambridge side effects are like that it will pass.

    good show on the swim suit i know all about that challenge, so waterbaby it soon will be. these steps will get you to where you want to do its one day at a time, i think the best thing is to break each challenge down so your not left looking at x amount of stones to get rid of. step one get through the first day, check step two the first week, then the first stone and so on.

    Good advice, so hard to stick to but so important! I'm aiming for one 'achievement' a day which might be putting up shelves or going swimming or something. Just hoping to keep busy and creating a sense of self worth.

    I learned two things today. One is that it's a useful thing to take the dogs out and put music on to take your mind off food. The other is that it's a really bad idea to walk downwind of the Chinese. Dog chose the spot right where the smell was strongest to do his business, so I had to stand there while he finished then pick it up, I was there ages!

    Today I built a flat pack wardrobe, shelving unit and computer desk all by myself. I'm really proud of myself!

    Uff. Up at half three for work, which is rubbish! I work from home, spent all of yesterday sorting out my office so I'd have a proper desk and chair set up (I usually work from the sofa) and plan to swap every 30 minutes between office chair and gym ball. I've only done one half an hour stint on the gym ball and I can already feel it's worked my muscles. The best thing is, it's on company time. That feels like a win

    I'm going a bit overboard with posting at the moment, I'm sure I'll ease off as I get into it, it's just constantly on my mind at the moment!

    I've been measuring my progress by the tape measure rather than the scales, mostly because I don't want to know my current weight! It's day 4, and I just caved and measured myself. I've lost 1 and a half - 2 inches off my waist already. I'm over the moon! It won't be long before I'm in my next size down jeans at this rate

    Hi,

    I'm on day 5 too. Good luck with the gym but would be careful as before this I went to the gym quite a bit but my CDC has told me not to go for a while as you don't have enough calories to burn. She said if I do just do walking or weights. Nothing to energetic. I'm going to wait until I go up to the next step before I go back.

    How you finding it? I struggled days 2,3 and 4 but feeling a lot better today. Still a few hunger pangs but the feeling ill part has gone.

    Well, I really hate myself now!

    I went to the pool, got in the changing room (communal!!) and then realised I forgot my costume. Then I found out the swimming pool changing rooms are unisex, but with individual cubicles like a toilet. I went home to get my costume, and had to stand in a queue to get back in. While in the queue, I noticed it was full. There were tons of men, and then I clocked the length of the walk from where you hang your towel to the steps, and there was a group of about 5-10 people standing in the pool by the steps just chatting. I imagined walking past them in my swimming costume and then felt myself start to cry, so just left. I just felt sick at the thought of going in!

    There are some women only sessions and some aquafit classes, I might do those instead until I've lost enough weight to feel brave in public.
