Thought I would start a diary to help me log my progress and hopefully get to know some of you :-)
I originally started Exante in March 2012 at 22st 4lbs , I did amazingly well and lost 10st reaching 12st 5lbs around November 2012. I felt wonderful although I still had a little more to lose. However in January 2013 I found out I was expecting a baby, I didn't get chance to form any non-Exante diet habits and as a side affect during pregnancy I suffered with low blood sugar and low blood pressure. I started needing to eat regularly and my body craved sugar if I didn't eat something I would faint. I did eventually get this in control but sadly I had put back on a huge amount of weight.
So here I am again knowing I can do this and with no more baby plans (husband is taking care of that one thankfully) I have no reason not to maintain at the end of this part of my journey.
I started again 01/01/2014 at 18st8lbs my last weigh in was 31/01/2014 and I was 16st10.4lbs, so my loss so far is 25.6lbs, I am very pleased with this!
This last week I had 3 meals out for various celebrations, I did eat at 2 but chose chicken and salad, the other 1 I abstained, my only vice was a slice of birthday cake. I have been 100% TS since Saturday and not weighing till Friday in the hope I haven't caused any damage.
Anyway I look forward to getting to know you all and best of luck on all your journeys. x
