This is the best option for me
It is Day 2 for me. I was very tempted to start on the total solution route because I just want to get rid of this weight as soon as I possibly can. However, I do not want to just lose weight, I am horribly unfit (out of breath walking up stairs) and will do ANYTHING to avoid any form of exercise - getting in my car in preference to a short walk to the shops. I want this journey to include losing weight AND getting fit - I want to tone up those saggy old muscles of mine. I have spoken to my Doctor and friends who have had success on VLCD diets and concluded that the extra meal will go a long way to support my intentions. I want the meal replacement side of things because it will take many of my temptations out of my life and I can hopefully change bad habits and deal with my carb cravings.
I start at a weight of 16st 5lbs and a size 20. I want to lose 6st. I have spent the last 10 years growing in size due to inactivity and over eating - all fuelled by personal tragedy (a familiar story for many I imagine). My husband is truly the most wondrous man - I can not imagine there to be anyone better in this world - sadly because of my issues, which really centre wround my weight - I haven't enjoyed life as much as I should have and this has a knock on effect for my husband. So, this diet is for the both of us.
I have planned all the meals and booked all the exercise classes for the week. I will walk whenever I can - everything is in place ... It's just down to me to make it happen
