Julie's Diary - a journey to slim
Here for motivation and to help others on their journey. I'm heading for mid forties, 5'1" weighing in at just over 156lb. I've been here before. I reached goal 124lb in December 2010 and I maintained really well to late 2012. The weight creeped on little by little. It happened in stages, 9 1/2 stone, 10stone, suddenly I hit 11stone and that awful feeling of self disgust returned. I tried dieting. I lost 3/4 lb several times only to put it back on after one night out.
So I'm back. I started on Wednesday morning and I'm determined to slip into size10 skinnys by mid august. I can still feel the joy of being slim, the confidence, the looks :) and that's what I'm keeping in my sight.
So all went well day one and day two. Day three I melted, I'm on a difficult project at work and I just got so overwhelmed I broke into tears and cried for the afternoon. Worse worse my boss insisted on lunch, day three terror, there was no escape. I opted for a salad and ate the chicken only. Feel so annoyed but I'm letting it go, I drank some extra water and I am keeping focussed.
Then yesterday the headache came with a vengeance for the rest of the day. I realise now it's the breakthrough to ketosis, but yesterday was not good.
Day 4 a new day, I've slept till late and I feel great, a sneaky WI tells me I'm down 4lb so this is good. Lots of water, 100%, determination, here I come skinnys xxx
