How do u handle meals out?
Only started today and already being invited out for dinners etc x
Re: How do u handle meals out?
This is an ongoing dilemma for me, but if you want to eat whilst out then you can do a WS day and have a keto friendly meal (steak and salad, etc but be careful with sauces). You will still lose weight with the odd WS day, but probably slightly slower than 100% TS.
Sadly, alcohol should really be avoided when doing TFR and in ketosis - there's a sticky thread all about this that is worth a look if you haven't seen it already.
Sometimes I wonder about just telling myself and those close to me that I won't be having food for a few months until I reach goal. I mean, what's a few months (given my years of yo to dieting previously), and you can still do sober, non-food related fun (albeit you might have to be a bit more creative!). I've never actually done this, but the reality then is that I never do anymore that 2 weeks 100% TS before having to WS here and there for meals out, etc. Sorry this is a bit rambling, but I'm currently asking myself these questions... Of course I still want and need a social life, but do I want to lose the weight enough to have a quiet-ish 12 weeks and shed 3 stones potentially? I'd almost be at target! The answer seems obvious, but this is a tough call to make...
Would be interested to hear other's thoughts.
Weight loss journey started a few years ago at 18st 2lbs. Lost 4st 3lbs through calorie counting and exercise. Started EXANTE 05/07/11 for a boost weighing in at 13st 13lbs and lost 17lbs but struggled to get back on the TFR wagon after a holiday. Messed about with Slimming World in 2012 and yo-yo'd for a bit.
Re-started SW August 2013 at 13st 10lbs. I will fit into that dress!! Boosting with Exante until Xmas.
Week 1 loss: 8lbs
Week 2 loss: 3lbs (snuck back into the 12s!)
Week 3 loss: 3lbs - 1 stone gone - woohoo - now 12st 10lbs _________________________________________ Mini Goal: Get under 13 stone and see the 12s again
Mini Goal: Get to BMI under 30 (out of the obese category and into the over-weight category) = get under 12 stone Long-term Goal: Get to BMI under 25 and a healthy weight = get to 9.5 stone. Be gorgeous on my wedding day in April 2014
