    5 months to blast (my first) 5 stone!

    Hi all,

    I wanted to start a new diary so here it is!
    I am not new to mm or s&s!

    I have probably tried (and failed - gained more weight each time!!) every diet you can think of.

    Ironically, despite sadness with my weight - constantly gaining another stone every 6 months for the last two years, I am deliriously happy with the love of my life and we are getting married - IN 5 MONTHS!

    I have wanted to change my weight for as long as I can remember.
    I am absolutely sick of tired of being so heavy and miserable. None of my clothes fit, I'm completely anti-social, and my self esteem is absolutely shocking.

    I feel that a vlcd is the 'break' from food I really need at the minute, so hopefully i can work on my comfort/boredom eating.

    For the first time (on any diet) I am mentally prepared. Very focuses and really going to give it my all.

    First mini goal = 5 stone for my wedding! Can I do it? I hope so!!!

    Haha I've actually put 5 stone as my first mini goal not just because my wedding is in 5 months.,. But because 16 stone was the last time I remember my clothes fit with room to move!

    Still squashing myself into the same size clothes as 4 stone ago... So I really am talking desperate measures!!!


    My starting weight is 20st 10lb and I am a size 22. Just.
    22 still in my wardrobe - couldn't fasten up the 22 winter coats Ive been shopping for!

    Here's to progress! Hope to meet new diet pals along the way! And fill my diary with success!

    P.s this is day 2!!

I find it easy with my 5 month old daughter who constantly wants my attention so being in ketosis really is helping keep my energy levels up :-)

    You can definitely do that. I have lost just over 4 stone in 13 weeks and was almost the same starting weight to you. I'm hoping I will be in the 15's by the time 4 months rolls around.

    It's tough but it really does simplify all the nonsense around food. Get your head down for the first couple of weeks and it will start to feel like a habit.

    Good luck!

    Hi all!


    Day 3 and a little stick test proves to be a dark salmon so I think I am in ketosis? However I do still feel hungry and my energy levels are worse if anything.

    Another two random grumbles -

    1. my mouth is aching, don't know if this has anything to do with the diet or my body being shocked I'm not stuffing it 24/7... But yeah a constant ache almost all day long!

    2. I am only 1lb down on the scales! In three days! This is disheartening to me as I'm so big I was hoping to at least shift half a stone.

    Will try to ignore the numbers and focus on the fact that I'm on a vlcd it MUST come off!

    Thanks for the comments!

    Looking forward to day 4 tomorrow, really proud of myself and quite glad I didn't cave into the box of malteasers! (Wrapped them for my gran!)

    Hope I manage at work tomorrow - first day I'm not going to be eating at lunch.... In front of people! Eeeek! xxx

    Try to stay off the scales at least at first! Stick with it, you can do it!

    Step away from the scales. Weight fluctuates daily and can be disheartening if you dont see much movement each day. Dont weigh again until weigh day and if you're following the diet properly you should see a nice loss x

    Thanks ladies!


    Day 5 for me! Don't know wether to believe those ketostix or not but either way I am not and have not been hungry or thirsty today and it's 11:40am.... So must be in some sort of zone at least!!

    I'm so thankful we can have tea on this diet mind, especially when it's freezing out! x

    That's the right attitude to have, at least the stuff you ate was protein and not carbs x

    Yes, you'll be able to recover from that! Get busy, drink water and make a plan - include 5 packs or 4 packs and protein at regular intervals so you don't have to go more than say 2 hrs between packs. Then, if you can go longer, you'll feel good about it, and if you can't, you'll know you don't have more than a couple of hours till you can eat again. It's all about the mind - mine is a pain and keeps telling me to eat so I have to trick it lots

    Good luck!
    Week 1 (SW): -1 lb
