Hi everyone! Firstly I want to say how fantastic it has been reading fellow dieters diaries, we all have the same determination to reach our goal. It has been very inspiring & motivational reading, lots of ideas and help. Thank you!!
So I thought I would record my own diary so I could look back and see how I am doing too.
I put on weight, without really noticing until my clothes felt tighter and have sort of ignored it and just tried to cut down, which sort of 'got me by' for now kinda thing. But ...and I am embarrassed to say it really..but I stopped wanting to go out socially because I felt 'too big' and my clothes didn't look right, so any excuse and I would rather stay in!
This year I decided that enough is enough and there is only one person that can make the change...ME!!
I did the Dryathalon for Cancer Research for the whole of January so no alcohol at all, I weighed myself at the end and had lost 8lbs! Usually I would go back to my bad habits snacking and boozy weekends but not this year!! I decided this was the push I needed to stay focused and carry on. I had a boozy weekend once the Dryathalon had finished and had seen loads of stuff about Exante. So I started reading this forum, and everything else to do with it and that was it, placed my order and on Tuesday decided to make a start. I am an all or nothing girl, so I knew the TS was the right one for me.I don't eat Chocolate so after my initial order did my own selection order too.
Tuesday went easily and quickly, a bit headachey by evening, so drank lots of water and black tea, didn't feel too bad and had had a very low calorie day the day before to ease me into it.
Wednesday was another issue, I felt dreadful, mouth tasted awful, head fuzz like I have never had before. didn't sleep well and felt ill, but i knew this would be short lived. Determined, I went for a nap and woke up feeling ok not great.
Thursday the 'fuzz' was there but less and I started to feel a bit better, even felt like my body was changing shape...so early on?
Friday I felt great, friend came over I hadn't eaten all day, they wanted fish and chips for dinner but I refused to have it. they and the family had it...I even went to order it with them but I was happy eating my bar and didn't notice them wolfing dinner down! I felt so proud of myself. I then realised at midnight that I had only had one bar so made a sachet of thai soup up and had that. Yay! I felt so proud!
Today, I feel great, still got one of my three left to have before bed, I cannot wait for weigh in on Wednesday morning! I feel excited and really do hope my willpower keeps going.
Anyway, that's the story so far. its helped greatly to read other peoples posts!
I hope you are all doing well and having a great weekend xxx
