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
