My weightloss so far on Exante and what I did wrong 8th day
Finally I decided to keep a diary as I think it would be very helpful.:p I started reading here the moment I purchased my pack, extremely helpful, thank you all for the advice and love the support you give to eachother.
Before Christmas I've been doing Ketogenic Diet (something like Atkins) and was quite happy except that I had to limit myself to around 20-24g carbs/day all the time; I was a steady 57kg (I was still cheating from time to time) After Christmas plus my partner's birthday I saw that I went up to 62kg, gained 5kg in a few weeks:eek:. It's my fault I couldn't control the carbs, but everything is soo yummy, but I panicked - this is the highest weight that I've been in my whole life.
Since I was a child I was chubby and didn't feel comfortable about that. Only in high-school I decided to do something about it and did low calorie diet. Yepiii it worked!! But I always have to fight to keep my weight down.
In the past years I tried low calorie but it just wasn't working, that's why I decided for first low GI (not worked at all :confused:), Dukan (but found it difficult the first 5 days), saw Atkins and then discovered Ketogenic (that I felt comfortable with). Trouble is that the ketogenic one is a way of living and I love some more carbs.
To be honest choosing Exante was a thing of the moment, because I never thought I'd ever do a VLCD until now. When started my BMI was 24.8 and was afraid to go over 25 so went for a Bumper Pack especially that it was on sale.
I started on the 8th of January and while on the diet, started reading a lot of threads on here that really helped me stay strong. I saw a lot of inspirational stories so I thought if they can do it, I can do it too.
The first 2 days were very bad, had the Atkins flu (headache, shivering, mood change) but from third day I was in Ketosis :p - I used Ketosix from the beginning. I lost 2.7 kg till yesterday (didn't expect that). I even keep a word doc diary to see what I eat and what effects me.
Today I was following the plan and then chocolate monster hit me. I had some leftovers Atkins bars that I used for my Ketogenic diet and were working for that diet well. I had only 1/3 of the chocolate orange one (I weighed it) and it put me out of ketosis :cry:I can't believe it... Will never do that mistake again, gave it to my partner, but I'm soo upset on myself...How could I do such a thing???
Hopefully tomorrow the ketostix will show me different :sigh:
