    Ali's Diary x

    My name is Ali, I'm 24 and currently weigh 19st 13lbs (omg), my weight ballooned when I was in a long term relationship that had become a mentally abusive one. I was cut off from my friends and made to feel I wasn't good enough/pretty enough/intelligent enough/worth the time of day. There was so much more to it but I don't like going in to it, I just recognise its part of my problem.

    So I turned to food for comfort, it tasted good and gave me a slight amount of satisfaction, I now know I was trying to use food to make me feel better - it didn't work!

    I used to weigh between 10 and 11st, with hindsight I realise I was healthy and had a great figure. I want to be back there!

    I've got a holiday at the end of September to Orlando with my bf and can't wait, desperate not to be anything like the size I am now. Last time I went on a plane I was so squashed in the seats as the sides dug in to my hips. Not pleasant for 9 hours!

    I also have rheumatoid arthritis and I've no doubt my weight won't be helping that, flare ups hurt anyway, but carrying a bit extra beef certainly makes it more of a slog when you're struggling with joint pain and fatigue!

    My goal is to lose the best part of 10st, by the end of September I really hope to be a good way there. I want to feel comfortable in my own skin, I can't carry on like this.

    Today is day 1 of exante, I'm doing total solution, so far I've only had the chocolate milkshake, I made it in a blender and was really surprised by how nice it tasted! Thick and creamy, no lumps as I blitzed it for ages to be sure! I'm going to have a bar for lunch and soup for dinner.

    Right now I'm just excited to be getting started. I've been reading a lot of the diaries on here and have been impressed by the determination, and the support is overwhelming!

    Can't wait to be a few weeks/months in and seeing results :-)

    Well I've had a chocolate shake for breakfast and it was quite nice, looking forward to trying it hot.

    For lunch I had a toffee, nut and raisin bar - whilst it wasn't awful, it was flavourless, the only thing I could relate it to was cardboard! Still, I had it with a cup of black tea and felt quite full afterwards.

    As the day went on I did start to feel hungry, I think with it being a weekend and I was just at home I didn't have much distracting me like I do at work, y'know like doing all that work stuff!

    I had the chicken thai soup for my supper, it tasted just like chicken soup out of a tin. Which is ok if you like chicken soup but I'm not a huge fan, it wasn't unbearable but I'm hoping the other soups will be nicer!

    All in all day 1 hasn't been bad at all, will power has lasted despite my OH popping out to the spar and getting a sandwich and crisps cos he couldn't be bothered making a meal. Sandwiches and crisps are one of my weaknesses!

    Looking forward to day 2 :-)

    Thanks Laura! Really feeling determined to make a success of this, can only be of benefit!

    Have been keeping 2 bottles of water in the fridge and making a point of drinking them, got a supply of coke zero too for a bit of fizz too.

    Really enjoy reading all the experiences and seeing the support, fab!

    Hi and welcome to the forum

    Good luck on your weight loss journey..I am the same as you- got a holiday booked but desperate not to weight what I do now- for all the reasons like the seats, swimwear, hot weather, etc arrgh!

    The weight loss is fast and I'm sure you will have a great weight loss week one and that'll spur you on- and away from the sarnies and crisps- also my weakness!

    Day 3 of being on exante and still got hunger pangs though I'm making a point of having a drink when they come about.

    I was cutting back on a lot food before I started exante and had lost 5lbs, think this was mostly water, however I had a sneaky peak today and in total I've lost 9lbs!! I know there'll be a lot of water but what a boost!!!

    Hello Ali

    Good luck with the weigh in tomorrow. You have done brilliantly so far. 13lbs in 6 days well done

    Im also 24 and want to lose weight. I currently weigh 12st 6 pounds and wanting to get down to 10 stone hopefully by my 25th birthday in May. I also have a girly holiday booked to Zante in July/August so want to look hot in a bikini . Im currently on day 3 of TS where im having 3 shakes a day for a month or two depending how I get on and tbh im not feeling too bad. Cant wait to see the weight fall off and my self confidence to go up .

    Laura-Louise xx



    I may not be there yet, but I'm closer than I was yesterday

    Im also 24 and want to lose weight. I currently weigh 12st 6 pounds and wanting to get down to 10 stone hopefully by my 25th birthday in May. I also have a girly holiday booked to Zante in July/August so want to look hot in a bikini . Im currently on day 3 of TS where im having 3 shakes a day for a month or two depending how I get on and tbh im not feeling too bad. Cant wait to see the weight fall off and my self confidence to go up .

    Thanks Laura-Louise :-)

    I'd say you'll def manage your goal, the good thing about TS is it takes any confusion about what you can/can't eat. Simple to follow and has great results!

    Make sure you keep posting on how you're getting on :-) xx
