My 'Lose Weight or Die Trying' Cambridge Diary
The title is a bit over the top, but that is how i feel.
Hello, i'm Sarah. I am 35, fat and fed up. I did a VLCD a few years ago but regained. My own stupid fault!! I got complacent, thought i could just lose any few pounds again no problem. Wrong!! Every pound turned into ten, then a stone, then 2. I have now regained 4 stones and 10 pound in 5 years.
I will never give up trying to be slim again, ever. I don't believe in a namby pamby approach either....listen to your body cues etc! If i did that i would be twice the size. I will always choose cake over salad, i will always choose chips over mung beans and i will always love decadent food a little too much for my own liking. I have come to realise that i will always fight my weight. I have an underactive thyroid, am naturally lazy, and will always want the quickest, easiest way out. However, once i put my heart and soul into something i give it my all. So i am willing to give maximum input for maximum rewards.
Here's the thing, today was going to be my give it all day and i stumbled, i started reading about a different diet, one that seemed easier 'just count calories, limit yourself to 1200 calories a day and you will lose weight' yes i will do that i thought to myself....but i'll start tomorrow and so i stuffed myself with 3 biscuits, half a packet of Twix mix (they're new :) ) and half a bar of snickers. Then i woke from my sugar induced coma and though WTF did i just do!!! I know i am not going to religiously count calories, i wan't something easy to stick to, something i don't really have to give much thought too. I am not going to agonise about how many calories are in 100ml of semi skimmed milk and whether it has taken me over my limit. No, i need a guarantee that what i am sticking to will work...no thought or much preparation required.
SO.....rather than start again tomorrow and stuff myself stupid in last supper mentality, i start now!
After my binge episode, i cleared the entire kitchen of junk food, out went to remaining Twix mix, biscuits from the jar and crisps. Kids, TOUGH!! You will be healthier for it!
Today, as you already know i have had
3 Viennese Chocolate Biscuits, Half a bar of Snicker and half a packet of Twix Mix. (I ate it, so i will deal with the consequence)
Add to this i will resume with my diet
1 Slim and save Shake
1 Slim and Save Bar
1 Slim and Save Spaghetti Bolognese and Allowed Veg
1 Slim and Save Shake
Weight in this morning 14 stones and 10 pounds
Goal Weight 10 Stones (approx)
Good luck to those reading, starting or on their journey's already.
