So this is my first ever VLCD, in fact, it's my first ever diet. Having absolutely no will power or culinary skills I decided to take the easy option.
I've started my own diary but decided to share it with anyone else who wants to read it. Hopefully it will keep me motivated and maybe even give someone else the insipration that reading a few of these blogs gave me.
When I finally bit the bullet and weighed myself my eyes nearly popped out of my head! 14st7lbs, should have been prepared seeing as I have bulges popping out everywhere else.
I did a bit of research and came across Slim and Save. I ordered the 4 item, 28 day diet.
Day One I did really well. Stuck to drinking loads of water and green tea along with 2 shakes, a bar and the mushroom pasta with 100g of brocolli. The shakes for me are quite hard to drink, they taste nice enough but the slimy feeling they leave behind isn't very pleasing, hopefully I'll get used to this because I'm planning on living on 2 a day until the end of time (well, until I'm my goal weight at least). The mushroom pasta was lush, glad I was able to eat it along with veg because otherwise I may have dialled for a takeaway on the first day, the portions are small but I'm never going to get slim eating huge portions am I? Finally I had a lemon and white chocolate bar. Safe to say I won't be ordering them again.
So day one was over... I survived and didn't give up! I can't help keep wanting to weigh myself though, really should hide the scales until weigh in day.
Day two (today) is going well again, I don't feel as hungry today and find keeping myself preoccupied writing in my own personal diary and now on here will keep me from reaching for a bag of crisps. The macaroni cheese tasted good and kept me fuller for longer. Had the dark choc and coconut bar for desert which was lush.
It's my birthday in December and I'm hoping to have photos that I am not ashamed of this time round. I doubt I will have reached my goal weight of 9st7lbs by then but I'm hoping I'll at least be well on my way.
Well that's enough from today, I'm off to make my final shake, the Hazelnut one is supposed to taste quite nice so I may try that one. I'll let you know what I think tomorrow...
