    Starting CD first time step2!

    I'm going to use this as
    My diary as I've not told friends I'm doing this or even my partner! They know I'm on a diet though...

    I've been excited about it!!

    So I've woken up this morning knowing I can't eat until this evening and already thinking about food because I know I can't eat it lol, even the quick banana I grab before work or sugar in my coffee!

    The coffee is bitter I usually have 2 sugars but I remind why it's bitter why I can't have sugar! I ran out of red milk so just a drop of green I've used!

    Taking my porridge to have at work...getting my nails done by my consultant today at my lunch break, so I'm not surrounded by people eating and take my mind off food hopefully...plus a bit of exercise as it's a walk! Won't drive.

    I work with mostly men and they are worse than women with chocolate treats and cakes etc! So it will be hard!!!!

    (I am female)

    So this is my journey, my diary. My start.

    Bored at work.

    There is fresh homemade banana bread, muffins chocolate flakes cakes etc in the kitchen and I'm finding it very hard to ignore them and
    Stuff I've just had a black coffee which is rank.

    Just got to keep reminding myself why I'm doing this!!!

    It's harder than I thought, had my porridge - maple and pecan was ok not very much of it though haha.

    Feel moody and headachey and cold wtf is wrong with me! God damn !

    Keep at it ginzah, the cold / headaches are you getting into ketosis, you should be in ketosis and feeling better by day 3/4. Keep focussing on your week one weigh in, if u stick to it like u r doing it will be worth it. How much do you want to loose in total?

    Hi!

    My goal at the moment is 5 stone! feels like a lifetime away!

    I've drank some water today will keep drinking too. Just had my dinner:

    275g quorn mince
    10g mushroom slices
    20g courgette slices
    20g green pepper slices
    Few pinches of chilli/garlic powder
    2 sprays low cal spray
    Salt
    Pepper

    I hope it's ok and in allowances!

    Was quite nice!

    Had my potato and leek soup at lunch was satisfying!

    Can't shift headache so going to have my last shake in a bit as I'm an evening eater thought i would save something sweet to enjoy lol.

    Having a raspberry green tea now mmmmm

    I just got to think why I'm doing this feel so ridiculous that I'm finding it hard! Makes you realise what you pick at and stuff already!

    I did have a tiny nibble corner of banana bread earlier I couldn't help it BUT it literally was a tiny tear from corner just to get a taste my god it was lovely why couldn't it be rank! Feel so guilty.

    Just had my vanilla shake, feel quite full and feel as if i would pick food ight now.

    headache is literally doing my head in, so am in bed now with bottle of water, going to settle down and watch some tv series' hopefully have an early night, work and drop daughter off early in AM!

    I feel quite positive.

    It's funny - my mum was doing her lunch for tomorrow...she had pasta draining usually i wouldn't think twice at just picking at it. I had to stop myself!

    I found cooking my own dinner this evening to make me want it more and as i was cooking it, made me less hungry...does that make sense?


    hmmmm anyway. bed time I am using this as my little diary, but feel free to post anyone. this forum does seem quite lonely and empty haha.

    roll on mid week weigh in my consultant wants to do and friday to give me the extra motivation, i so hope any loss! I do give up easily. why, why food? i didnt do drugs except smoke a bit of weed growing up and cut it out straight away when i couldn't be bothered any more. why is food my addict, my comfort, my happiness. bleugh.

    need to think of it as the enemy, think of it as bad drugs. food is bad drugs to me now! :P

    HI Ginzeh
    I am reasonably new to all this and also started on step 2- started at the beginning on August. I am so glad I did! I haven't had a weigh in officially for 2 weeks as my rep has been on holiday but I'm quite excited but a little nervous! Good luck with your mission!

    Hi!

    I see youve had a 1st 6lb loss since beginning of august? well done!
    i'm nervous about my first weigh in, I so hope it will work for me too! lol.

    Only naughty things ive done is had garlic in my spice mix with my food (ive read so many contradictory things regarding garlic)

    you got any tips etc?

    At least you're at a better weight than me starting off also!

    good luck xxxx thanks for writing to me!

    i had my dinner - it was lush! took a total of 10 minutes to prep and cook! the water from the prawns made a nice little soup with the spices too

    I was a little under for protein though - box of prawns said 300g i got 200g so was 50g off :/ ah well.

    Bit worried as the damn 5 spice also had garlic in and read so many yes and no's wether its an allowed food or not and even recipes have it in! must ask my consultant!

    I have been wondering drinks too. if anyone reads this do you know if no added sugar robinsons orange squash is allowed?? that was all i drank before this, waters a bit boring and green tea etc makes my mouth even dryer!

    finding it hard to sleep although i am tired and my tummy keeps grumbling i dont exactly feel hungry though, making all sorts of noises!

    just keep worrying if this will work for me. :/ anxiety +++

    i've had 4x 750ml water today and 2 milky teas 1 coffee they werent all drunk though,

    had my last shake at 8ish - was butterscotch! was rather delish!

    going to try and sleep now ;/ been in bed since 8.30.

    So, had my milky coffee this morning, maple and pecan porridge and my chicken and mushroom soup - rather lush!

    I got weighed early - my consultant wanted to spur me on with motivation and I have lot 4lbs since Monday!! (2 days)

    I found out I cant have Robinsons sugar free squash so bought sunshine orange water flavouring - tastes funny but a bit better than plain water I suppose and counts towards my daily water intake

    Can't believe lost 4 of these!!


    My consultant has them and she has a "stone" suit which she said she'll put on me once I reach a loss of a stone!

    I have no idea where the 4 big limos of fat have gone!! Probably my brain haha.

    I just hope it hasn't gone from my boobies!!! Ive warned parents to start setting money aside for the boob job as they've said they'll pay for surgery after weight loss if I need any tweeks!

    Felt really cold a bit crappy on and off today so worked from home, had the
    Coffee shake this morning it was very nice! May have that every morning instead of porridge, not into porridge flavours that much! Trying normal porridge tomorrow!!

    Had strawberry Milkshake last night that was really nice! Creamy!

    I had the spicy oriental soup for lunch! Oh that was yummy!

    This evening I had 2 chicken breast aparagas courgette and mushroom again, soo nice with chilli

    Tomorrow having fish!

    Bought some new digital scales today 12 in Sainsburys, I feel bad as the quantity seemed less on these than the other scales I had so hope I haven't been going over other than today!!

    Had a horrible sleep last night kept waking up for a wee and acidy stuff kept coming up and made me a bit sick maybe the sunshine orange powder stuff? Tastes like medicine :/ don't really like it, wasted 7.50

    Getting weighed again tomorrow to motivate me over the weekend consultant said, feeling worried and excited!! Going to stock up my supplies also

    Chilling in bed now candles and netflix. Heaven! Have sat-wed off, have a few days rest from work! Ok split shifts!

    My work shifts are somewhat horrific but it's I.T so usually horrid hours!

    Sleepy time.

    Haven't bought lots of treats in!

    One of the IT managers bought in doughnuts yesterday as received an email I don't like them anyway lol gully Krispy cremes and programming manager bought lots of cakes for our team as we've been working on a few
    Things for her!

    My
    Manager sent an email around banning cakes etc
    As I'm on a diet and my senior supposedly is haha! Meant are definetly worse at eating crap!!!
