    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

    I am sticking to this but it has been difficult. Lots of mind games on food for me. Am I hungry? ... not really BUT I have spent at least 10 years over eating so in my head it feels like I am very empty and I have a strong desire to "fill up".

    I am keeping in my mind the wonderful feeling I had when I woke up this morning which was positivity and pleasure that I have taken some steps in the right direction - so different to feeling regret about the previous day and wanting change.

    I have followed the diet and also went to two classes (spin and body pump) - the second class was spin and it was a bit strange because I could feel my muscles fluttering and a little weak from the body pump class before BUT I did get through it and tried to keep up and felt really good after.

    I really enjoyed the added meal - chicken with veg, soy sauce and chilli shoved in the oven to cook in a little clay pot

    so far - so good

    ha ha ... yes it is funny a lot of people say it's a killer but strangely for me I like it. I am sold on the calorie burning and I love the loud music - really motivating. I am just doing spin and body pump at the moment because high impact classes are out (for now) because although I have the all clear to exercise from my Dr - he has advised I can do as much as I can handle - I can not do high impact stuff yet because I have been inactive for so long that my joints and body can not support the work until I have been more active and lost some weight. I found this out the hard way when late last year I got into my head that I would get fit - starting with some walking .... walking can't hurt right? .....er wrong!!! I over did it (typical of me ) and ended up with stress fractures in both feet! totally down to being out of condition and carrying too much weight .... oh and walking in trainers ... yep ... I can be really stupid sometimes. All or nothing with me usually - If I am totally honest, I hate exercise - I have spent the last 10 years avoiding it but, it has to be part of my journey now, it can not be just about weight loss, I owe it to my body not just to lose weight but to also get as healthy as I possibly can. My body has been good to me considering how much I have neglected it. My eldest brother has just been diagnosed with Diabetes (amongst other things) it is a condition that I have not given enough thought to, and I am very aware that I am definitely following him down that route, this has made me look at my own behaviour.

    A good morning for me - I wake up feeling muscle ache in my shoulders and chest from my first body pump class - although a little unpleasant, it is a reminder that I am doing the right thing.

    I am "dealing" with the whole meal replacement thing. Breakfast was a shake with a big spoon of coffee. I have the rest of the meals lined up for today including a salmon fillet and veg for later (again it will be just shoved in the oven in the pot - nice and easy). I did walk past a fruit bowl in the house today and could smell its contents, and that was a little difficult because it is not something I would normally notice but today that fruit smelt good - I know I am really going to miss eating that but I am telling myself that it's not a NO to fruit for the rest of my life ... just for a few months

    No classes today (I plan to have 2 rest days a week) - I have booked all my classes for the next 7 days. I have booked classes for 5 of the 7 days, sometimes doing two classes in 1 day. I absolutely know I am going to have days where I just don't want to go to the gym and my sabotaging internal voice tries to talk me out of it by coming up with some bogus excuse for not going - I am going to do my best to ignore it.

    I did something I rarely do today - I looked at myself in my underwear in a full length mirror. Hmmm - not a great sight, which is why I usually avoid any reflection of myself because it will totally depress me and get me reaching for snacks to fuel my self pity. Today, I just stood and wondered how I had let this happen(?) No time to reflect - move on and make good I say - fingers crossed that there is an ok figure left and not too much damage after the weight loss.

    Mood today: really very positive, impatient and determined

    Exactly!! what is wrong with trainers? Well apparently, people often wear the wrong trainers which have been badly fitted and do not support the foot for the activity they are doing. For me, trainers + overweight + inactivity (meaning soft tissue in feet out of condition) = stress fractures!!

    I have two brothers - one overweight, the other who eats like a horse but has a physique which looks like he spends hours in the gym - he doesn't, he is just blessed. xxx

    Lol - yes indeed

    What's the deal with start next week? Have you a big event this weekend or are you working your way through the food left in the house?

    I am really hoping the positivity remains next week, so will gladly send those vibes to you - I just hope they are still there and I haven't slipped into "wretched mode" which often comes around the 2nd week of a diet for me. It happens when I suddenly start allowing negative thoughts to take over and I feel overwhelmed with just how much I need to do to achieve success - "so why carry on/bother?" but I'm ready for those feelings ... I am not going to let them ruin it all xxx

    Haha because my friends who encouraged me to do it with her, can only do it Monday, i was going to do it before but thought it's better to try support each other..... That's why it's that day.... And hopefully there will be no food in by then either hahahaha

    Well we will need to kick each other's butts next week then x x x
