    Red face My 'Let's do this' Diary!

    Hi everyone!

    I guess we are all here for the same reason so I thought I would see if I could give as much support and encouragement here on Minimins as I have received on here and from my friends and family. Its such a hard road we are walking but its just that little bit easier with a friend to push you along (from the back, prodding you with a stick!)

    I gained weight as a child, so at 28 years old I have no idea how it feels to be slim and fit! All this time I though I was OK with being big (shocking right!) It's all I have ever known. This changed a bit when I lost 4st 3-4 years ago through just eating right and going to the gym. OMGosh! My eyes were opened! I still wasn't 'slim' but I was fitter and I looked and felt better. I didn't need the dreaded extended belt when I went on holiday, people didn't look at me as if I was a new species and I could shop in more than one shop! Since then I got married, had a baby and gained all and more weight than I had lost.

    I really miss the life I had started to enjoy back then and I feel as though I have lost that spark I used to have. THEN.... a friend of mine started Cambridge and lost a ridiculous amount of weight. I watched her confidence grow and I though.... I want that! So, I started Exante (because I can't afford Cambridge!).

    I was so shocked when I lost 11lb the first week. I mean OMGosh! The second week I had a week off from work and messed up for like 4 of the 7 days I was at home so I only lost a little over 1lb.

    Last week I lost 5lb and I feel really good. My only problem (only...really?) is that I seem to be eating more and more each day on WS so from tomorrow, I will be doing TS on weekdays and WS on weekends.

    My weigh in is on Wednesdays... may change it to Saturdays, what do you think?

    I hope someone finds this inspirational because I know that I certainly need a reassuring word now and again.

    So another day down! Yesssssss!!!

    Today was a good day. I had two shakes today, one was chocolate and the other was vanilla. I put 3 sweeteners and a teaspoon of coffee in the vanilla one and it was really nice! Kinda like a latte. I was planning to do TS today but my goodness was I hungry when I got home! I really don't know how everyone on TS does it! I mean I thought if I started with WS that I could ease myself in to TS but it seems that it has actually made it harder because now I actually look forward to having my mini (or not so mini lately) meal at the end of the day. I am going to try not to have a meal tomorrow, just an Exante product but if I can't I will make sure I limit what I am eating... I don't want another 1lb loss week. I think I will use one of my toddlers plates....
    Today I had chicken and cucumbers which was soooooo nice! I really am starting to enjoy healthier, simpler ways of eating. I love to see the colours on my plate and the new variety I am now getting. Strictly speaking, WS allows me to have three products and a small meal, but as I only have two products a day and a meal, I think it should even out right?


    On another note, the weather has been so great in London recently! I can't 'weight' to drop a few more lbs (STONES!!!) to be able to get into all the lovely summer dresses that will be coming out soon!! I am so looking forward to NOT being self-conscience this summer. I think I am aiming to lose at least 2 more stones by end of May. I hope that's not too ambitious. I feel that spark trying to ignite again ladies and gents...watch out world!!

    Wow the days have just flown past!

    The last few days have been so difficult. Its like I can see where I want to be but have no way of getting there. I haven't actually done that badly but I feel rotten. I have been snacking between meals with nuts which I know is a no-no. For the last two days I told myself that I need to do better but it's just so difficult once you have a piece of the forbidden fruit... in my case, food!

    So today I told myself 'come on girl!! Don't you want to fit into those lovely summer things that will be coming out soon?!!!' And it seems I don't because I caved in to nuts again! The only good thing and that I ate the last packet and they are from abroad so I won't be able to get anymore!

    So tomorrow, when I post an account of my day, I will be able to say that after a week or so, I will FINALLY have been able to have a TS day. I am sooooo ready to lose another stone again, no more floating on this same weight.

    I feel like such a failure this week, can't believe I wasted a whole week

    Goodness me!!

    I was so ready to give up yesterday. I even starting looking at other diet groups because I thought I was done with Exante. I thought I would put out a last desperate cry for support and I am so glad I did.

    I had a few really helpful replies that pulled me out of my self pity. I told myself that I need to get on with it and stop wasting the days. I am going to Turkey in May so i would like to lose another stone by then....hopefully!

    This forum is so fantastic! (Like you didn't know), I am just so grateful.

    One day at a time!!!

    Hi Nicy,

    Well done for not giving in! It can be really trying doing a diet like this! If you let your body go into ketosis then this should help with the overpowering hunger feeling and will help you be able to plod on a day at a time!

    Good luck on your journey and hope you have a good week :-) xx
