    Kuromi's big journey diary

    I guys,

    Started LT Thursday last week and was told I was 11.13. A year ago I was 13stone but I felt I need help with some control and structure with quicker results than 1 stone in a year. So with this in mind I took the plunge.

    Day 1 fairly straight forward, no concerns.
    Day 2 weeing all day.
    Day 3 no real issues
    Day 4 had to watch family eating and drinking. Made it through with no cheating.
    Day 5 busy at work so no time to even think about anything other than my breath
    Day 6 busy again, this time armed with breath spray. Early night needed.


    So day 7 now called to a close and done with today's disaster diverted. I went into KFC and ordered.... Just water. I sat and watched my partner eat and didn't desire any.
    I also watched him eat 2 cheese burgers and acknowledged the smell was more appealing than the actual burger.
    Tomorrow is my official weigh in - here's hoping they confirm the 10 lbs I've lost according to my own scales.

    My partner has taken a sudden interest in my diet after spending days eating crisps, burgers, cakes, chilli and loads of alcohol next it me so is coming with me to tomorrow's check in to enquire and find out what might be suitable for him. Who knows, we may have another new slimmer on the LT train soon.

    Good luck everyone.

    Hi everyone, well the chemist told me I'd lost loads but didn't actually tell me their figure *facepalm*
    Either way I've finally cleared a spot where I can leave my scales so I should get as accurate figure as possible each day now rather than them being in a different place each day.

    On another note my other half has suddenly become so supportive he came with me and signed up too. He starts tomorrow as his task tonight is to eat up the last of the fresh stuff in the fridge before he starts in the morning. Here's hoping he can stick with it and at least now I haven't got to sit smelling all the food he's been cooking.

    Strange that they didn't give you a figure ! , what did your scales say ? I'm going tomorrow but don't want to weigh s my scales say no change but have only been on it since Monday. Am tempted to wait it out until next week for my first weigh in.......... don't want the disappointment of nothing if it hasn't kicked in properly yet. Great that your other half signed up ! mine doesn't need to he can eat all he wants but is being really supportive
    Donít wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now.

    When I weighed myself prior to going to the chemist on day 1 I got 11.11 and the chemist told me I was 11.13, which I suppose is about right with clothing. Yesterday however she didn't tell me my loss but the scales said 73.6kg. I thought it a little weird they didn't actually give more encouragement by talking about the loss. It was very much "stand on that, here's your shakes" kinda thing. I'm not too bothered as I have home scales but anyone who needed help and encouragement or doesn't have scales might have needed someone to say " oh you lost this much, Weldone" or something.

    Although I'm not feeling so hot today due to me having a period now for the first time in years, triggered by a VLCD, the good news is the crease in my back fat is disappearing. That must be a good sign that the fat IS going, as up to now I've not felt convinced. Monday will be telling when I put my uniform on, as it will have been 7 days since I last wore it, so I'll see if the trousers feel any loser.

    Had an awful night full of nightmares and also dreaming id cracked and eaten a huge bag of pitta chips. Woke up feeling quite low and being all menstrual isn't helping.

    Currently feeling pissed off with my scales as I get 3 different consecutive readings within seconds of each other without moving the damn thing. I have decided to go with whatever the middle reading says to get an average. Today I weighed in at 11.2, which is better than I expected being as I feel bloated and crampy. Normally I'd be turning to chocolate, crisps and bread when on a period, so this is going to be interesting to see how I fair without my comfort foods. Luckily I treated myself (again, this has been an expensive month) to a wheat bag bear on Thurs when I picked up my shakes. I'm going to have a bath, then microwave him and have a cuddle to ease the cramps. Now I know how lucky I am to not have to go through this each month. I do NOT miss periods.

    Went out tonight and nearly every other shop we passed was selling food. Whilst my OH who is on his second day was having problems with craving food from the smells I was okay until he started talking about it, then the thought of chips, hot dogs and other fatty foods actually made me feel so sick I had to sit down for a moment and regain my composure. I never thought I'd see that day where I turned my nose up at chip shop fish and chips, burgers or hot dogs.

    Day 11 and I'm 11.075. Just shy of 10 stone. Hopefully tomorrow morning will be nice to me and give me a good start to the week with a fresh start at tackling the 10 stone barrier. This is now officially the least I have weighed in about 7 years.

    Same weight again this morning, so Monday wasn't as sweet to me as I'd hoped, but on the plus side my work trousers were looser today. I can also comfortably do my belt up to the tightest notch. That's a nice confirmation that things are going in the right direction.

    On another note, I've had my new blender delivered so now can mix my shakes and water flavourings up and it's small enough that I might put it in my back pack to take to work to make up my drinks there too. My water flavourings came today too, and so far I've tried the cola and white wine flavours. Not bad for £3.33 each and making drinking that much easier that I've managed my 3 litres easily today I reckon (the loo trips would certainly imply so anyway).

    Have noticed bruising appearing on the top of my thigh. Quite an odd pattern as it's lots of little bruises clustered together and in such an odd place I can't think how I could have done it. On second thought, it might be from the knob on the cupboard under the sink. Must check the location when next in the kitchen. Either way, never had this before however it is noted as a side effect of VLCD so I'm not exactly worried.

    Still finding the nights I don't take sleeping tablets to be unsettled. Might take one tonight as this would be the 4th night without proper sleep otherwise and to be honest I like the sleep I get from the tablets as I generally tend to sleep through and don't dream yet wake up refreshed. Makes a nice change from all the weird dreams and nightmares I've been having recently.

    Still having a session of breakthrough bleeding, however I'm coping. Still getting some pains and cramps but just ignoring them and carrying on regardless.

    The OH has been complaining that this diet is making him smell bad. Now I've not seen anything on this, however I must admit that the first week I seemed to be sweating an awful lot, and even with deodorant I was getting very wet underarms, which is not a usual problem for me. Maybe that's a side effect of detoxing?

    2 more days til weigh in 2 and I'd would love to be a good 16lbs down from my starting weight. Here's hoping.

    11.025 today damn you 10 stone for evading me. Here's hoping for a drop overnight for my weigh in tomorrow. Went for a walk at lunch time today. Not exactly miles but enough for to build up a slight sweat which then made me freeze all afternoon. Praying that little bit of extra effort will push me over that threshold.

    Tried strawberry shake with a dash of lemon fresher powder tonight. Tasted really yummy. Decided to start making my shakes up with as much ice as possible as not only does that up my water intake but also I can't drink them as fast, so they last me longer.
    Turns out my new water flavours contain chicory root. I didn't realise it until I just read that it's a form of fibre. Well the good news is I'm not bunged up anymore. Would have been nice if I'd found this out before I put a healed teaspoon of fibre powder in my last drink. This should be interesting.

    After a whole night of dreams (nightmares?) revolving around my weigh in and me managing to fail so many times by eating or doing something stupid in these dreams, I woke up with a sense of dread. What if nothing had moved? What if they'd actually gone up? After lying awake for over an hour, I finally took the plunge this morning to go face the scales....

    10.1375

    Thank god. This is officially a first for me in many years. I have not been this light since about 2003 when I went on weight watchers. That's now left me just under 1.5 stone to go. So I think my plan is another week on LT then I can think about moving over to slim & save for the last 2 weeks assuming I can average about 7lbs a week as I see most people still loose on the refeed, so I have a few pounds to play with should I have a lower loss one week.

    Feeling relieved.

    good one Kuromi, its a great feeling breaking a milestone isn't it? I remember what I felt like when in managed to get in the 10s, I was like yay and woop-pe-do! My next milestone is to get to 10.5 which is where I get to last time on LT and I finished as it was my boyfriends birthday and we were going away. I didn't do the reefed properly and that was the start of the end really even after all the effort on LT.

    When I finish LT reefed I am going Primal/Paleo, like Atkins but less restrictive with the veg and fruit, low carbing definitely suits me, as much as I enjoy all the unmentionables especially in winter, my body hoovers them up and plonks them straight onto my thighs. Not a good look.

    I never knew that bruising was a side effect, it explains this bruise I've had on the top of my thigh for over a week now.
    Also I found that I was a little stinky around week 2/3 then it went. It was just coming out of my skin and I hated the smell but it disappeared soon enough so it must be the detox.
