    Sheridan's Pre Wedding Blitz!

    So I've decided to do a diary here since I have found reading others really motivating and hope the addition of my own will continue me on the right path.

    This is my 4th attempt at Exante TS and I've never lasted longer than 10 days! But I'm determined this time to stick with it for 5 weeks - the time left until my wedding day!

    My starting weight is 14st 10lb which I found shocking, the highest I've ever been.

    I'm aiming to lose roughly a stone and a half but ideally want to get done to 13 stone minimum by my wedding day.

    So here I am on day 3/35 and going well do far. Managed to stay 100% since day 1 and want to keep it that way. The cravings haven't been too bad but psychologically I've been dying to eat some real food!

    But will persevere. Excited for Friday as that will be my WI day.

    Here's to losing!

    That is an achievable target if you are good! I managed to lose 2st in five weeks when I did LT with no cheats for the first three weeks and then just the very occasional, low carb cheat. Good luck with it and remember how much better you'll feel looking back at your wedding photos if you're two stone lighter.

    I'm doing OK - day 7 today so looking forward to weighing in tomorrow. But haven't been 100% so am not expecting a huge loss. I lost 12lbs my first week when I did LT but won't get anywhere near that this time. But it's not a race and this time I'm committed to the long haul. Just keep thinking every 1lb down is a step nearer to goal. Having said that, I'm aiming for an average of 3lbs a week. If I was looking to do 1lb a week I'd do WW or SW.

    I'm sure you will still achieve a good loss. and that's a good mindset to be in, aiming for the long haul. You are right though, I don't think it's worth doing a VLCD if you're only looking for very small losses on average! We're here to shift those stones and we can do it!

    Lol if losing weight was fun, we wouldn't be here! I am excited! It was a last minute thing! We decided in January this year that we finally would do it and it's come around very quick!

    In addition to Exante, I'm using body wraps to help firm up my saggy skin from having kids (ew!) as that's the most worrying for me about losing weight quickly on a diet like this

    Ugh. Feel so awful, headache and bad stomach pains. Just taking things slow and trying to relax but have two more packs to have and the thought of them is making me feel sick. Loooong evening ahead to get them down.

    Stuck to my guns and nurse some water for an hour before having my shakes (fairly late I might add!) and seemed to help my headache so maybe was dehydrated. Though felt much better as soon as the kids actually went to sleep! Lol.

    Start of day 4 and I feel slightly more energetic though can't tell if that is because of ketosis. Planning to start having my shakes a bit earlier, so that they don't all bundle up at night and put me off!

    In addition, getting good results from using my second body wrap, there is a noticeable difference in my pouch (ugh- mummy tummy!)

    So that's a plus here's to another 100% day, oh and revision for my exam :L
