New York or Bust
My Name is Nikki, im 44 and am a self confessed yoyo dieter. >.<
Im new to Exante, I just ordered the bonus pack of mixed goodies, plus a carbanara and a porridge to try them today, they arrive tomorrow, So tomorrow is my first day. Im Super excited, See ive done Lipotrim before really sucessfully, but i relapsed and put about 75% of my weight back on, through eating pretty much what i wanted once id got where i wanted to be and stayed there a few months. Im determinned that this year i will sort myself out and turn myself about , do it properly and stick to it.
I hate excercise, but ive bought a gym membership (gym is literally next door) and promised myself through this diet, monday to friday lunches i will go for 30 mins excercise each lunchtime, as i dont want to be "baggy" which was a problem i had last time i lost a lot of weight.
Im hoping that the shake and soup and bar choices you get with Exante will keep me going strong, and the fact that you can drink things other than black tea/coffee and water. (The hardest bit of lipotrim was all the water) I bought myself a box of bouillon (light salt) and a bottle of Asda Diet coke (as im not taking aspartame) and hope that they, plus my determination will see me through to the Ketosis. I know once im in Ketosis if i keep busy i will be ok.
I have a few goals/hurdles along the way
on 5th April im going for a long weekend in dublin, not sure how im going to handle this, any hints and tips would be welcome.
In July i will have to take a break from Exante for a few weeks whilst i go on my family holiday in spain
and lastly the big goal.... As incentive to keep to this diet, ive booked myself a week in New York shopping for the new me in September. Thats me goal to be at whats called a "Normal" weight.
Last time these forums were a godsend.. and kept me going.. im hoping that time time found they will be my sholder also
Hello..... and lets saddle up..... Nikki

Hey Nikki and welcome to the exante gang!
I'm so jealous that you're going to be off to New York, it is my dream to go there one day.
Are you hoping to stay on plan while you're in Ireland?
If you still want to have a meal out just make sure you stick to protein and veg.
Good luck with your weight loss x
Week 1) -8lb
Week 2) -5lb
Week 3) -3lb
Hi Nikki, welcome. I'm sure you'll do great since you've done this kind of diet before and you'll be "normal" weight in no time and be able to enjoy New York
good luck hon, hope you can manage until your packs arrive. If you can't, then just eat something like a piece of chicken or a boiled egg, just protein no carbs, and you should be fine.
Hope you're full up on your three first packs xxx
ultimate goal to eventually hit target and stay there!
I hope your delivery arrived
Ultimate Goal - To be able to look down and see my bikini line to shave it, and not have to do it from memory

2. Meal plan and write/log everything down.
3. If I fall off plan on my diet, don't wait until the next day to restart. Brush my teeth, and restart straight away.
4. Don't overeat. Only eat enough so that I could go for a decent walk straight after eating, even if I'm not.
5. Exercise for a minimum of 30 mins 5 times a week
6. Always, always weigh in on a Tuesday. Except when away on holiday
7. Only ever drink alcohol in social occasions - never alone.
