Right then - So I restarted Exante yesterday but first a bit of background.
I attempted Exante 2 years ago and managed to do it for about 3 weeks. I kept on losing until I stopped which was due to a). a friends BBQ and then b). a crazy night out a few days later. Your booze tolerance massively decreases doing this. Anyway, I swore I would never do it again and instead just maintain a healthier lifestyle (to which I didnt).
Last year I went on holiday and although I personally dont mind getting on the beach with however I looked, I felt as if I stood out a bit being the only fatty on the whole island. This year I am going again to the same place but this time with a bunch of lads who all regularly hit the gym and look sharp. Thats not my only motivation for doing this again, but it damn sure helps to use the future thought of standing next to these guys at the beach. I dont expect to tone up and I will still look big, but even losing 2 stone off my current weight will help massively!
The weekend just gone - contained my Birthday and it being BH, decided to go out on the Sunday which basically meant I was starting the diet on a hangover. Even worse than that I decided to also use Monday to stop smoking (I only really started last summer by excessive partying).
I'm now in day 2 of exante and no cigs. I'm feeling pretty hardcore right now but at the same time, good about myself. Although I came to work this morning and somebody put a large bar of Galaxy on my desk for my BDay last week. Ill just give it to my misses and kids
I can draw on my experience of doing this diet before so I fully know what to expect which is actually helping me feel great right now. Knowing that the first week is the toughest but with the biggest rewards!
