Hello Slim n Savers!!
I've been doing Slim and Save for a week now and loving it, but decided to start this diary to keep me going in the right direction!!
A little about myself...
I lost 3 stone on the Cambridge diet a couple of years ago before my wedding and felt great... but slowly the weight crept back on and I was back to my starting point.
Really annoyed with myself and decided to start a healthy eating regime to lose weight. It came off sooooooooooooooooooooooo slowly, and then stopped coming off altogether... Which I then realised was because I was pregnant!!
I then had a massive malteasers craze!! I'm really not sure why!! Mad! I put on 4 stone during pregnancy and had a little 6 pound baby!
I lost a little bit of the weight but got stuck a stone over my pre-preggy weight. It just wouldn't budge!! Grr!
So I decided to go back onto the Cambridge diet-but then stumbled across this minimins forum and discovered slim and save.
Only my husband and my best friend know I'm doing this diet at the moment. I will eventually tell people but really would like to at least get a stone out the way and be fully in this diet past any side effects before telling people. I found with the Cambridge diet that a lot of people who didn't understand had a negative view of it and couldn't help but give their opinions. Many found it crazy, but if you've never struggled with your weight then I guess you would find a vlcd crazy.
I'd like another baby maybe next year or the year after but really would like to be down at my target weight before we start trying!!
So here goes:
Starting Weight: 13st,7lbs - 1st September 2013.
Will aim to get as much off as possible in these next 12 weeks.
Target Weight: 9st 3lbs - but really 9st 7lb but am aiming lower so that the 4lbs I gain on the refeed programme will take me to my happy target and then hopefully I can maintain from 9st,7lb.
I'm 5'4" so I should theoretically be anything between 8st -10st ish.
September 14lb loss challenge
To be close to 10 stone by Christmas
To get into the 12's
To get into the 11's

To get into my size 10 Next jeans that I've only worn once!!
Wish me luck!!
