The Easter Challenge!!
So here's the plan... I've not done one properly before so I'm one starting it now.
THE EASTER CHALLENGE!!
Day 1 - 88 days from Easter Sunday - Starting weight: 13st6
88 days of 100% - NO cheating, NO excuses, NO alcohol, NO WEIGHING!!! (Argh)
Open to bets on how much we'll lose haha.
Wll take a starting photo tomorrow and then a photo after the 88 days and upload the comparison. It would be good to get a few of us doing the same so we can all compare at the end and post them in the 'Inspirational Pictures' thread! Us... Inspirational!!
Our reward? Sexy new figure and for me a Cadbury's creme egg Easter egg.
Anyone who wants to join please do, the more the merrier!! Actually really excited about this!
DAY 1/88 - DONE
Come say hello in my diary too if you like... http://www.minimins.com/slim-save-di...r-vlcd-28.html
Nice to see plenty of people are up for it!! Haha.
Well it's day 2 and I'm feeling good, not even hungry, I know tomorrow is usually when the headache comes but from then it's all systems go!!
Had 2 shakes, mac and cheese with cucumber then baked chicken with spices with a spinach, cucumber, spring onion and celery salad. I feel the making of a new career of a chef coming on!
Had plenty of water and green tea and just treating myself to a Dr Pepper Zero now. Anyone know where you can get multipack cans of them? £2 for a litre bottle from Morrisons seems a bit steep!
Anyway, DAY 2/88 - DONE!!
Only 86 to go!
I'm up for it :) I'm on day 6....
Well done hunny! I'm part way through day 3. Resisted temptation big time at work. There were subways galore then Pringles and chocolate brownies! I was wear they do it on purpose. I just had my shake and got in with it. Just eating a salmon and prawn salad now. I'm only part way through and full! Think ketosis may have kicked in. How you getting on?
Finished day 3 with mac and cheese with mange tout. Is it weird that I actually look forward to eating it? I think I may still order packs of it when I'm maintaining just for pleasure haha.
3 down, 85 to go!
7/88 .... Weigh day when I can drag myself out of bed!!

I had 4 packs and extra protein yesterday and boy was I full... I think ketosis is kicking in.
I am joining the gym again tomorrow, no choice as I walked past the owner and he said when you coming back haha so first thing that came into my mind was Monday ... I live in such a small place there is no hiding :)
Shopping today as will take my bar with me to have with a coffee! Good luck x
Hi there MissAmyMarie
Can I join you please! I'm now starting day five, and my start weight was 13st8.8lbs, so almost the same as you!
My target too is Easter!
Course you can join!! Are you weighing or waiting?
Make sure you let us know how you get on Katie! Good luck with the gym, I've started using my stepper and plan to get back into boxing when I get paid. I'm working today, booo!
Right I weighed and last sunday I was 14st 12...... now I am 14 stone 3 :D so a 9lb loss for me!
Can I join???? Please please??? I really HAVE to lose the weight by Easter as I have a holiday booked in California! I leave on good friday so I have 86 days and am on day 6/86! Start weight was 14.12 weigh day Tuesday. My goal is 3 stone or 42 lbs. this is exciting. Are you still weighing weekly?

You certainly can my dear! Even though I'm massively jealous of the fact you're going to CALI!!!

Honestly can't believe how fast the days are going! Day 4 already!
Had 2 shakes and just cooking some chicken to put with the soon becoming favourite salad (who'd have thought)
i posted a link in my diary which I think you should have a look at. It takes the things we think about food and puts them in different situations and makes you realise how silly we can all be. It's really good!

hiw are you ladies getting on?
I weighed myself this morning.....down 3lbs in 4 days. Bit disappointed as everyone else is doing so much better!!!
However today has been good too.....so here's hoping for a good loss when I weigh in after week!!
I'm weighing in properly on Wednesday as I'll have done 7 days then!!
Thats almost a pound a day which is amazing! Even if you stay at 3lbs loss and lose the same every week, by the end of the month you'll be a stone down. You shouldn't be disappointed, you've just lost 3 bags of sugar. Go and feel how heavy just one bag if sugar is!

I think you should weigh in Wednesday like you said but then try going longer without weighing. You'll see bigger numbers and feel better, guaranteed!
You're so right MissAmyMarie
I know I've done well......but when I've done WW and eaten and drank alcohol, I've lost 6lbs in first week.......and I'm comparing the two I guess!
I'm definitely not weighing myself till Wednesday now, and have decided I'm doing packs in the week, and protein only at weekends! I had too much protein today and am beating myself up for doing so, even though I know I've not gone anywhere near over the kcal allowance......just missed out on minerals and vitamins.
I need to re-order some food packs! I will do this! I will lose weight!!!!!!
