Jayne's Diary - Exante Total Plus. Started 2 Jan 2015
I'm in ketosis! Woohoo!
Such a relief to be back on track with weight loss. I haven't properly dieted in such a long time and my weight has reached an all time high! The most I've ever weighed before is 19st 13lb. I never quite managed to push that 20st barrier, and always stopped myself just before I got there. I faced the scales a couple of months ago though and saw I was just a touch over 20st, but for some reason just couldn't cut the addiction to food at that point. I suppose I knew in my mind that the New Year was just around the corner, and once again that is when I would give this dieting lark a really good try. The problem is, for me weight loss is easy enough, it's the keeping it off is the problem!
So, what's my motivation this time around? Mostly it's the fact that I'm almost 21 st! I am SO uncomfortable at this weight. Everything is such a huge effort. Just moving around is hard. I wake in the morning with aching muscles/joints and I know it's because my weight has crushed my body whilst I've slept. My quality of life has slipped dramatically and I can totally see how some people end up house ridden and unable to go anywhere. I cannot let that happen. I am almost 43 now, and it's time to get this sorted! In the past I've been super fit, healthy, etc. I'm going to get some (if not all) of that back.
Another huge motivation is that I am going abroad on holiday later this year, for the first time in 6 years. My husband and both of my children are slim and healthy and there is no way I can go like this! I would totally hold them all back on getting out and about. I want to be able to fit comfortably into the aeroplane seat. I want to feel confident in a swimsuit.
So, my mind is set. Whatever is supposed to click, has clicked and I am doing this! I have steely determination
Hello and welcome

well done on day 3! so much you wrote rang true with me! I am nearly back at my heaviest and although I'm not weighing til tomorrow when I start I reckon it's about 22st ...... god that hurt just writing it! so it's on the diet with a right royal kick up the bum tomorrow.....my first goal is to get back to where i was 6 yrs ago before I met my hubby and had kids, 17st.
hopefully i'll achieve that before my hubby's birthday in july.
i need to get "me" back so out with the slobbing about and greedy slovenly behaviour and in with "thinking" and taking care of me for a change, i want my kids and hubby to be proud of me and see me take care of myself...and I want to get to see my kids as adults and not die young, thst is the thought I need to keep me on track!
Glad its all going so well. One of the things on my list for 2015 is to make sure I have all of the packs so that I dont end up adding some protein instead which then leads to nibbling. Seems to be working so far x
Really Really likes to post!

Welcome Jayne, it sounds like you're in the right frame of mind for complete success! I will look forward to the journey with you. I restart tomorrow, we are similar heights, weights, age and goal in mind. We can do it! Good luck.
Hi Jayne, welcome and good luck xx
Hi Jayne - Good luck! We are all in this together. Hope you are finding it ok so far!
Susie - Yep, definitely eating all packs will help with avoiding nibbling on protein. Glad all going well for you
Angel - Hope restart has gone well. I shall check up on your diary next Good luck!
Weigh in tomorrow. Excited! I can definitely feel a small difference in my clothes and am feeling well overall. I ordered some more Exante stuff through the week - did the 100 items for £80 (or whatever it was) as was able to add in things like chocco balls, hazelnut shakes, carbonara, bars, etc. Anyhow, a lot of that stuff is for 3 meals a day as opposed to the 4 a day my first bumper box was for. So now I have the option of doing a 3 meal or 4 meal a day plan, which is good I like that I have a good variety of stuff here to choose from and think that will help. I don't like any of the soups, but do like pretty much everything else in the range. I did also buy a couple of tubs of the water flavouring, but more for having occasionally than all the time. Generally I'm quite happy with water, green tea and coffee. I do miss fizzy stuff though, so have bought some sparkling water, and the water flavouring was quite nice in that. I like fizzy water by itself too though So, so far, so good. 100% on track. Week 1 almost done
