    Katie-x's Ketosis Journey....

    I thought that now I'm a whole 13 days in I'd have a go at keeping a diary to record my highlights and hopefully few lowlights!

    I've done vlcd's a few times in the past, my most successful being on LL when I went from 19st to being in the 14's - that was the first time that I did one and I was very focussed. Over the years since then my weight has gone back up and down to where I find myself today on this journey.

    Being honest I'm an all or nothing kind of girl, I can happily stick at these diets and not eat a bit of real food for months but then when I do 'cheat' I cheat big time and then that's it. I'm not the kind that can take a night off and have a chicken salad or a meal out with friends and then return to the diet the next day, though I really wish that I was.

    I've come to a point where I'm 45 years old and I've been overweight since I was 20 and I know that if I don't do anything about it now then the chances are that I never will and that would be such a waste. I love my life, am totally in love with my hubby of 25 yrs, adore my kids and grandchildren, really enjoy my work and the one thing in my life that constantly makes me miserable is my weight and I've lived with that for 25 years, totally crazy when you think about it!

    So I'm embracing this experience this time as a life changer, I never used to look to the future when I dieted but I am now, from daft things such as looking at clothes to wear in the next size down (& the one after) to visualising what it will feel like to go on holiday in June and be 5 or 6 stones lighter!

    So this is me in for the long haul, I'm hoping I'll have lots of good things to share over the coming months and that I'll also get to share the good times of friends on these boards, I know there will be the lows but I hope they'll be few and far between for us all.

    Onwards and downwards xx

    Getting to day 13 is great.

    Your story rang so many bells with me. Being all or nothing, falling off and not getting back on, losing weight and putting it back on and being unhappy about the weight! I could have wrote that myself!

    But like you say, now is the time to get to goal and stay there.

    I too am going on holiday in june and i am determind i am not going to be fat for another summer!!

    Good luck with your journey x

    Just back from taking the dog for a 2 mile walk, be a lot easier if I lived somewhere flat - I'll just have to think of the bonuses of the exercise!

    Am quite looking forward to my weigh in tomorrow, and if the figures aren't playing nicely I'm just going to keep telling myself that while my clothes are getting looser and people (who don't know I'm dieting) are saying I've lost weight then really the figures don't matter and they'll get lower in time - argghhhhh lol.

    I enjoyed your first post - could have been written by me too!

    I think all of us here have a similar story to tell - weight up and down all our lives.

    It is completely crazy, for sure. I'm a nurse and full well know the risks of obesity - so why on earth can't I address it???

    Lets share the journey together, and I know that 2014 is going to be THE year

    Hi Katie. Your post rang a lot of bells with me too, although not the bit about being able to stick at VLC diets for months on end - my record is 5 days! I've never really succeeded in losing weigh until exante. I had a bit of success with calorie counting and still use My Fitness Pal but couldn't stick to Weight Watchers or Slimming World. Also tried Dukan, Atkins and all sorts of other diets. I don't go off the rails big time in terms of time but I do in what I eat. If I go out for a meal I tend to have what I like rather than be sensible. When I went to Turkey last Summer I ate and drank well to excess. I suppose my difference is that I keep coming back and restarting and I intend to continue with exante until I reach my goal. I'm really pleased you've started a diary. Everyone on here is very supportive and it really helps. One thing I'll say to you is - If you do go off the rails don't stay away like some people do. Stay on the forum, even while you're off track and you'll be back again sooner.

    Darcy I agree that 2014 is going to be the year, let's do it

    Lynne it's like you saw into me when you wrote about leaving here if I go off the rails, that would normally be the first thing I'd do! I do have this total self sabotage streak going right through me, I go off the rails and then cut all ties with my former good side - I can't do that this time, this time should I break then I'll stay on the boards and get right back on the track.

    Susie I'm hoping the diary does help, if only as a support in an hour of need.

    Just out of bed after a lovely afternoon nap, I was shattered and so was hubby as he'd been on nights and only had 4 hrs sleep so we gave in and went for an hour, was great he stayed awake while I snored my way through a fabulous snooze. I think we've both decided to give the gym a miss tonight though as we are both drained, think it's an early night for me.

    Katie I think the body gradually gets use to the water. I could never drink water on its own but now I cant get enough. Have to have it warm though or else it gives me a belly ache.
    You will be surprised how many steps you do a day. Usually more than you expect. I'm so glad I got a pedometer because it spurs you on to try & do a few more by the end of the day.

    Well done on your loss! You sound very motivated - I did LL too and lost 8 stone but managed to put it all back on and tried without success to do it over and over again. Blamed many things like my original counsellor leaving, having a busy job but at the end of the day, the blame is on me. Anyway, I'm on Exante now - I would love to think I'll get down to being mini again but at the moment I'm content to focus on losing as much as I can towards spring with the idea to trying for a baby. I may not end up as small as I was at the end of LL but I'll be a lot healthier than I am now and more at peace with myself and I think that's what is motivating me. Good luck and I shall be reading your diary with interest!

    Thanks ladies

    Elle you can do it again, I think it's just a case of getting your head in the right place. Someone once said to me that while doing a vlcd you need to look at food as though it's fuel, eating just enough to keep you going, it's a necessity and not a luxury. That's how I'm looking at it, I'll use this as fuel for now and in the future I can have luxury food but in moderation.

    I've got two parties coming up in the next couple of weeks, an 18th and a 50th both are people very close to me so I couldn't miss them, my plan is to drive, drink coke zero or water and not eat (at one I'll have toothache as I don't want people there to know I'm doing this) and I'm looking ahead to their respective 21st and 60th when I'll still be a lot slimmer (I have to maintain this time!!!!!) when I can drink wine and enjoy the food lol.

    My big task I know is to not get to 13/14 stone and think to myself that I'm so slim compared to what I was and just give up, I know that this will be a battle for me. I really need to focus on the end result and not just what feels good midway. Having said that I will be stopping the diet in mid June as I'm going on holiday and I really don't plan to do a vlcd while I'm away, I'm happy to eat sensibly and count the calories but for those two weeks I'm definitely off it. But for now it's 2 weeks down, 22 weeks to go!

    Yes, you're definitely right - it's all about head space and those 'little voices'! I was talking to my husband last night and said to him to that for me, I do plan to eat occasionally at events - I have an evening with good friends coming up on Friday and then Chinese New Year at the end of the month. But I'm planning (certainly for Friday) to eat a very small amount and stick to protein and on Saturday not feel guilty that I've eaten but be able to move past it and just get back into the diet as if I hadn't broken it. I think for me, the all or nothing does work but I've got to learn that when I'm not on the diet and I do indulge, I've got to be able to reign it in and not go completely bonkers and stuff face hence allowing myself to eat on Exante occasionally (but I will need to plan ahead!). Does that make sense at all? I feel strong enough to do it and I'm hoping this will help me cope in the future.

    Your plans sound great - Coke Zero is such a life saver! Toothache is a great idea, I might pinch it for other upcoming occasions.
