    Orcanomore LT Journey

    Day 1 on LT
    first day over & getting inspiration from the forum ..while lying in bed feeling a little peckish & tummy rumbling! Hoping that my body is starting to digest the excess glycogen already! Had 3 shakes today & don't like the taste (which I think is the idea!) so am having to drink them quickly through a straw. The hardest times today is when I have come into contact with food, preparing meals for my family Found drinking the water was easier than expected. Dreading the next 2-3 days until ketosis kicks in..but hoping to keep on track & be inspired by others sharing their journey on here Weigh in at 13st1lb & looking forward to being in the 12's by the end of the week!

    Day 2 completed & delighted that it is over! Only felt hungry a few times and was surprised by that. Again, the hardest parts of the day were coming into contact with food when preparing meals for family ...longing to pop some of it in my mouth but I stayed strong & resisted..keep trying to focus on how pleased I will be when I step on the scales next Wednesday Couldn't resist stepping on my own scales & delighted to see the numbers going down! Had to cancel dinner date last night..but went to cinema instead. It wasn't too bad being at the cinema & not eating popcorn...my very considerate dh decided not to get some so as to help me resist temptation! So I just had a bottle of water. Couldn't be bothered to take my last shake after I got home ..so only had 2 shakes yesterday ..feel bad about this. Drinking water definitely helps and no headaches so far.

    Welcome Orc...

    Day 3 and you should be in ketosis. Its the toughest diet ever in my opinion. But the results are worth it.

    Im heading into week 5...and ive found the cravings for food dont really leave you.

    You've done 2 days...so u can do it. Stick with it.

    Day 3 over & am hoping that I will be in ketosis soon. This has definitely been the worst day so far, am feeling weak & no energy. I am thinking I must be depleting the last of my glycogen reserves! I decided that the best way of dealing with today was to get dh to sort out family meals & keep out of the kitchen! Fortunately it is the weekend & he is around to give support have decided to take it easy and have been reading lots of inspirational stuff on the forum here to get me through this day..it will be so worth it when I get to weigh in day

    Day 4 is just over now ..and although I don't really feel hungry, I still think about food & find it hard seeing family eating in front of me I don't feel as low energy wise as yesterday so am hoping ketosis has kicked in. I cooked a healthy fry up for brekkie for family & guest ..and then had my shake! Was in town today & just had a peppermint tea instead of my usual coffee & cake! But dinner was very challenging as we were all going out to the local pub for a treat ...I just sat & drank sparkling water & drooled while they all tucked into yummy food ..I found it really tough I have been thinking about this & wondering what I could do to make a similar situation easier next time..and I have decided that anytime that I am tempted to go off course I should look at some 'before' photos that I have on my phone & this should help get me through I really want to get to the end of day 7 & see an amazing result at weigh-in.

    Day 5 on Lt today & it is still very hard! Have started drinking green tea a couple per day ...hoping that it may help speed up metabolism..and sure it is a pleasant change from black coffee. Feeling very guilty because I gave into temptation yesterday & ate a small amount of protein so didn't have my 3rd shake. I weighed myself this am & have maintained same weight as yesterday..feel relieved that I haven't gained weight after not being 100%. I have tried to draw a line under it & start afresh today...but know that I have upset the ketosis & have started to feel hungry again..only myself to blame
    I started off today with great positivity & decided to purchase new accurate bathroom scales ..so that I can see if I just even lose 1/4 of a pound..to try & keep me motivated to do this 100%. I have had a bit of an upset tummy today..which is a bit of a welcome relief really as was feeling a bit constipated! (Sorry about tmi!) Now I have just gone & wrecked my day again & gave into temptation & eaten some more protein (small portion of chicken & ham) while preparing some food for the family!
    I know self-sabotage is why I keep failing on diets..but I really want to make a change in my behaviour & really want to kick my ass right now Still I am not ready to give up yet ..so I think I will only have 2 shakes today & hopefully limit the damage done.
    Off now to look at the photos of me that I hate looking at & that inspired me to do Lt in the first place ..I can do this..I can do this! I want to do this..it is my choice!

    Day 5 contd. ..finally day 5 is completed! Managed to resist eating more food & just had one shake. Read on this forum about mixing the chocolate shake with cooled peppermint tea & lots of I ce ...gave it a go and it was yummy...a nice change in flavour
    I am hoping that I will be back in full ketosis when I wake up tomorrow & won't feel hungry (tummy rumbling as I write!) and will have a 1000% day on Lt...only 2 days to go to first weigh in & I really want a good loss to keep my motivation I ordered ketostix today so that I can monitor the ketosis. I hope I can remain strong and get through this week, one day at a time.

    I personally dont think a little bit of chicken and ham will harm you that much as I have done similar in the past - I have even had a small amount of peanuts,almonds at times and stayed in Ketosis.
    I wouldnt recommend it as you get cravings for other things to 'see what I can get away with' which is never good on a TFR.
    I pretty much nobbled my 4/5 month run the last couple of weeks by just not doing the diet correctly at all but I have been back in the swing of things now for a few days and back in strong ketosis.
    If you keep at this diet you will see amazing weight losses, I have mucked about a bit since July and I have lost 5stone 2lb.
    Icemoose did CD (same thing really) and he lost 11stone in 20 weeks !!!!!
    You can lose lots and lots if you drink shakes and have at least 2 litres of water a day.

    You want to be 9 stone or 8 stone ? -on Lipo if you stick it, you will be !

    Start Weight - 25st 7lb
    Now - 20st 3lb

    Total So Far on VLCD's :- 5 Stone 4 lbs off
    Waist - 52" at a stretch - as of Oct 26th I am now 44" (Nov 4 managed to squeeze into 42" but a little bit tight still so will wait for now)
    December 1st 44" hanging, 42" now a good fit
    Shirt Size 5XL tight - 3XL (Most 3xls now fit apart from cheaper Asda George type jobbies though to be honest they are close) - still cant get into the 3XLs very well because of this darn belly!!!

    Mini Goal - to reach at least '19st 13lb' by Feb 29th (cmon!!)

    Day 6 on Lt is over! Started the day off positively...couldn't resist jumping on the scales first thing & am relieved to see numbers going in downwards direction. Was doing really well with drinking water & green tea & being 100% until cooking dinner for family again..when I gave into temptation..to eat a little bit of protein again Where is my willpower? Other amazing people on this forum have done Lt for months ..and I so admire them. So I skipped my middle shake again & just had my last choc shake made with peppermint tea again & have rushed off to bed so that I can get away from temptation! I am looking forward to my first weigh in tomorrow & am hoping it will help me keep on the right track from now on

    Some of us are not angels Orcanomore but we do our best
    5 months on Lipo is a long slog to be 100% all the time and I have faltered a few times over the months but I never give up, and that is the key dont just pack it all in as you ate a chip or something get yourself back on track and in ketosis as quickly as you can and then avoid avoid avoid as much as possible.
    If you can 100% all the time then good on you and you will succeed really quickly, people who haven't seen me for a few months now almost have a heart attack when they do.
    One of the girls from work saw me yesterday for the first time in months and almost had a fit, she couldn't believe it - honestly gob smacked that I had lost so much weight so quickly.
    I still have about 5 stone to go or so yet, you only have to lose a small amount really and you can nail that fast on this then make sure you do the refeed correctly when you do come off for good (to avoid putting on a stone in fluid etc) then just find a longer term diet that suits - I find locarb is the one for me.

    Start Weight - 25st 7lb
    Now - 20st 3lb

    Total So Far on VLCD's :- 5 Stone 4 lbs off
    Waist - 52" at a stretch - as of Oct 26th I am now 44" (Nov 4 managed to squeeze into 42" but a little bit tight still so will wait for now)

    Day 7 on Lt ..went for weigh in at lunch time and very pleased to be down 8lb. Thought weight loss would not have been so good with a couple of minor blips & having just consumed my first shake of the day an hour earlier! So very relieved. Will weigh myself at home tomorrow to see what my full week on Lt weight loss is ...and hoping for more On to week 2 and hoping to do better ..not giving up after that result
