Thought I'd write a diary so that I can update daily (If I get time), hopefully keeping my motivation up.
I know LT works as I did it a few years ago. I lost over 4 stone and was over the moon. I maintained for a good while but then when I fell pregnant with my son I gained so much weight. I gained a stone in about a week which might sound crazy but I always gain really fast and it takes forever to lose it on a normal diet, think this is to do with how my body deals with insulin. my son is now 7 months old and I need to lose this weight now. I dont feel happy or confident how I look. When I was pregnant I didnt mind being big as I had an excuse, lol.
I have a lovely husband who hates LT. He really doesnt want me to go back on it but I need to for my happiness so I'm hoping he will be supportive even though he doesn't agree with it.
As of today I weigh 16 stone 1 lb. This the heaviest I have ever been in my life. I have a goal to be somewhere in the 11 stones however, I'm not looking at that, I'm looking at each lb gone as an achievement.
I'm a big saver, last time I did LT I saved £10 for every lb lost and spent it on a new wardrobe when I got to my goal. It was so nice to spend money on myself for a change as it usually goes on my daughters, hubby, house, etc etc. Im going to do the same this time. Last time I had over £500.
I'm doing 30 day squat and sit up challenge which requires you to start with a certain amount of sit up and squats and increase by 5 everyday. Day 1 is done. I decided to start with 50 although some people start with less or more. I am also walking to drop and collect kids from school, usually drive. Its about 10min walk to the school so thats 40 mins of walking a day.
I have had 1 shake so far today. I always mix it with 300ml of cold water and 6 chunks of ice and blend it. I hate the shaker that the chemist sell as it leaves bits in it yuk.
I get a little obsessed with the scales when I'm dieting so I will try my best to only weigh myself once a week but not sure if I will be able to stick to it. Maybe I'll will have a half way through the week weigh in
Looking forward to next Thursday when I weigh myself. I am using my scales as they are reliable and I will be using them after I finish LT, other scales may weigh me lighter or heavier so Im sticking to my scales. Pharmacist is ok with it.
