    Serialslimmer's journey back to bohemian slenderness

    Further to Jayne's recent suggestion I've decided to start my own diary. I am superstitious so have previously avoided doing so - I was hoping Greeneyedgirl's diary would continue to 'bring me luck'. However I don't want to hog her territory indefinitely so here I am.

    I already knew from long personal experience that getting back into TS after a break - for any reason, including health issues - would be hard. And so it is proving. I'm craving again in a moderate manner. I yearn for the taste of ordinary food. Last night I thought, boy, could I go for a salad roll. I am vegetarian so my choices of protein nibble are limited. I didn't have the salad roll. I couldn't anyway because I had neither roll nor salad in the house! I did, however, have a loaf in the freezer.

    Right now I am making a tiny low-carb loaf in my breadmaker. There are tons of good recipes online for low-carb breads and rolls. If I get desperate for a slice of toast tonight I'll make it low-carb.

    Keep up the good work, girls! Exante is a great diet and TS is not the only way to lose weight. I just prefer it because it's the fastest LOL.

    The bread and break maker! sounds like heaven. Can't beat a hot bread roll. Yummm.
    I held out til 6 for my second pack. Think I was starving today because I had more coffee than normal so I'll learn that lesson (hopefully!).

    Have a good evening!

    Hello gals! Welcome and thanks for posting.

    Well the good luck seems to be kicking in already because despite my wee slips I've lost 2lbs. Ha Ha. The benevolent Universe really does have a good sense of humour. I'm chuffed because when you add carbs even in a small amount the crazy amount of water your body holds onto makes the scales go nuts. I've reduced calories by a few hundred from my sick-bed 1200 so that probably helped. Not complaining!

    Now I must get back into the swim of things. I can't deny, however, that I am feeling much hungrier these days. The body jumps for joy when we eat a bit more - it thinks the larder is full again and starvation no longer the norm.

    Green I'll stay on your diary thread, don't you worry about that. Hope you are well in the 14s today xx

    Just seen Green's fantastic WI result. Go, Girl! RIGHT.

    This has made me decide to shake myself good and proper and aim for a 3lb loss next week. Do-able if I somehow manage to add exercise which is not easy with limited mobility. Maybe I can sit, bob up and down and wave my arms around madly? LOL.

    The good weather is making me feel sad, stuck indoors as I am. But the sunshine streaming through my bedroom window is cheering.

    Hey Lady! Thank you for joining my diary thread.

    I just had a lovely cleansing shower and yet again thought to myself, aargggh I want my slim body back. I'm huge - a real heifer; I WANT and need to lose this regain. I know everyone here will understand - we've all been in this situation at some time or another. Indeed, many times.

    GRRRR fat I hate you! LOL. But I don't hate ME any more. Self-loathing does only harm x

    Had a good day so far. I'm very tired mind you. Not sleepy so much as lacking energy. Of course carrying so much extra weight is bound to make a person tired! I'm looking forward to the wee boost of proper ketosis.
