    Aryathebrave's fighting the flab

    So here goes...

    A little background on me. I'm 37 (soon to be 38) and have never been able to call myself slim. Lost quite a bit of weight a few years back (was lovely to fit into size 12 for the first time) but put it all back one (and then some) during and after pregnancy.

    DD is now 18 months old and I am the heaviest I have ever been. I hate looking at myself in the mirror and decided enough is enough. I haven't got much time for exercising and due to foot injury can't do much cardio anyway. Hence the decision to try Exante. 4 week bumper pack arrived yesterday and it all looks a bit daunting... But I NEED TO DO IT! More for my daughter than even for myself. Wish me luck! The fight starts tomorrow...

    So porridge (well, most of it) down. Tasted weird and towards the end made me gag... Not good as still got 5 left! Having a cup of black coffee helped. Must be strong!

    So here I am, day 1 nearly done. It's not been too bad, apart form feeling light-headed and tired the whole day. Food-wise I've had:
    Porridge oats for brekkie (vile) and a cup of espresso
    Black Americano mid morning and 1/3 of a toffe&nut bar (edible)
    The rest of the bar for lunch plus a cup of bullion
    Spag bol with a splash of Tabasco and herbs for dinner (quite nice, actually)

    Drank loads of water (both fizzy and still) and had a cup of green tea at break time. Now I'm looking forward to having coke zero with loads of ice as an evening treat. Hope tomorrow's good too!

    Well done on getting your first day under your belt. Lots of water & drinks make it a bit easier to stick to plan.

    Hope tomorrow goes just as well xx

    So just had the curry for lunch with a splash of tabasco for extra kick. Really enjoyed it! So far, I'm finding the savoury meals more pleasant than the sweet (barring the yummy banana shake). Off to swap the rest of porridge and bars, methinks.

    So day 2 is almost done. I am proud of myself - still 100%, though caught myself salivating a few times today, especially when walking past TGI Friday's (and I don't even like their food that much)... I'm still feeling empty, tired and 'foggy' and find that the hardest time to get through is from 3-5 p.m., but I manage. Hubby is eating a late, lovely smelling dinner, daughter is in bed and I'm sat in front of the TV enjoying the Dr Pepper Zero with ice. Food eaten today:

    *Banana shake for breakfast (lovely) and a cup of espresso.
    *Cup of bouillon for mid-morning snack
    *Curry for lunch (really enjoyed that, especially with an extra splash of Tabasco)
    *Shepherd's pie for dinner (nice)
    * Lots and lots of water (fizzy and still)

    So all in all, quite a good day food wise. Here's to another OK one tomorrow!

    I had the shepherds pie most evenings on my first week I really liked it. I tend to have mostly eggs, bars and pancakes now. You're doing great, hope today is going well!

    Day three is the worst in my experience so get through today and it should start getting a bit easier.
