    From Fat to Fabulous

    Hi All,

    Let me introduce myself. I am Kelly, aged 45 (46 next month but for nowI am most definitely only 45).Currentweight is 17st 10lb Ė say that really quickly because itís the heaviest I haveever been and boy am I feeling it.Height 5ft 4in.Basically I am aball Ė as wide as I am tall!

    I am going to start Exante TS on Monday 16thMarch Ė once Motherís Day is out of the way.Iíve already purchased about 6 weeks worth of food packets and amgetting rather excited about starting.Itís great reading about all your losses as itís certaining giving me a boostand I am actually looking forward to starting on those little packets of Ďdustí(Little Britain reference there).

    I lost 5st on lighterlife about 8/9 years ago but theyincreased the price whilst I was in the middle of it so I never carried on andmissed out the maintenance phase Ė thinking I was clever and that I could do italone.Obviously Iím not and I didnít!

    So why now I hear you ask?You did ask didnít you?Oh welleven if you didnít, Iím going to tell you!Well first and foremost is obviously my health.I have two children and I really would liketo live long enough to glory in all their achievements, to see them get marriedone day and to cuddle my grandchildren.I figure if I carry on the way I am Iíll be lucky to see them finishschool.

    My DD started secondary school last year and my DS is due tostart in September 2016.Letís be honesthere Ė kids are horrible!ĎYo Mammaíjokes are rife and I really donít want my poor kids having to be the butt of amillion jokes about how their Ďmamma is so fat she ......í (fill in whateverfat joke you want here).Now I donítaspire to being a MILF but hey I wouldnít mind getting to the point of aMICLAWTU (mother I can look at without throwing up).

    Iím also fed up with having to make fat jokes about myself Ėwhich I do because I have to get them in before anyone else says them becausethen I wonít be hurt by them.Do youknow what I mean?

    I want to run Ė yes run Ė up with stairs without having tohave a little sit down on the bed after to recover.I want to sit down at the end of the day andnot worry about the niggly little pain Iím getting in my left hip which Iescalate in my head to my bones crumbling into a pile of dust which means Iwill need a hip replacement, which means I will need surgery, which means I haveto have a general anaesthetic, which means I may DIE.I want to get a proper compliment aboutlooking nice rather than a half arsed back handed one along the lines ofĎYouíre a big girl but you always look nice.í (which of course means, if youwere skinny and looked like that youíd look crap).I want to look in the mirror and see thewhole of me rather than looking in the mirror and zoning in only on my eyes orhair because they are my good bits.Iwant to wear a pair of high heels without causing back ache, leg ache, footache and the heel to break.I want towear a pretty little summer dress.

    Anyway, you get it now.Iím ready for this.I know thisdiet works and the food packs means you donít actually have to sit thereworking out your calories, your points, your sins, your green or red days.How many times have I sat there surrounded bybooks working out this or that whilst eating a biscuit (or 10).With this diet you eat 3 packs, you drinklots of water Ė End Of.Done.Weight Gone. Yee Har!

    Iím going to cheat Ė ĎOh God,í I hear you groan, Ďwhy botherthen?íLet me explain.I, as part of a team at work, was awarded ameal out.This has been planned for amonth and we are going to a fancy restaurant in London at the end ofMarch.I could wait until that is done,but then itís my birthday mid April so do I wait until after that because Iknow we will go out for dinner then?NOI say, NO.If I do that then Iíve missed6 weeks worth of diet.So Iím going toaccept that there will be a couple of days where I do not keep to the dietcompletely and as I have already got that in my mind I know that those weeks Iwill not lose as much as can be expected.That said, there is no reason why if I make some careful choices Icannot enjoy those cheats without going stupid.

    So thatís me.Oh Ilike to talk Ė have you noticed that?Ihope you will all bear with me and my ramblings and I hope you will support mein my journey From Fat to Fabulous.

    Hi Kelly Wishing you lots of luck with your weight loss. Re the 'cheats'. I know some people do manage to have the occasional off plan day, and do just great, but personally I found weeks 3-4 the absolute hardest and just know if I had any sort of off plan moment, that'd be the end of me with this diet as I'd never get back into ketosis and the cravings would literally kill me lol. I'm at that point now (just had week 10 weigh in) and I'm just doing it. No, it's not easy, and I still pull on a lot of willpower, but it's definitely not as hard as it was in the first 6 weeks and most of the time, I'm not even thinking about it anymore. My birthday is at the end of April (I'll be 43), and as with other events in the last 10 weeks, they've been put on the back burner for me, or I've gone out, but I haven't eaten. I have sat and watched others eat, and dealt with the disapproval, but I haven't eaten or I haven't gone. I won't be celebrating my birthday with food. I'll save it for next year when I'm slim Or postpone a meal for once I'm off packs. I want this more right now. Anyhow, as I say, some people manage it better than I could - you may be one of those people. We all know ourselves the best, but I think sometimes it's also very easy to convince ourselves otherwise, as let's face it, food is our addiction.

    Anyhow, that's all in the distance for you and you can always see how things go. Enjoy your weekend, and then onto week 1 Good luck!

    Thanks Jayne for your reply. I know it's not ideal to go off plan at the time I have said but I have fully accepted what that means in terms of the diet and I figure if I choose wisely and stick to the plan at all other times it is still a hell of a lot less calories than I'm currently having. Have been reading your diary - you've done so well.
