    On a diet - boooo

    I've just ordered my first meals, not sure how long they will take to arrive. I've never been on a real diet. I've always eaten like a horse and exercised to compensate. I had a baby last year and she's now 6 months, I weighed 2 weeks after birth and gained 7lbs. 6 months on its turned into 2 stone 7lbs. I'm really demotivated, having a baby is hard work but I also have the responsibility of being carer for my father in law. His wife died 1 weeks before my girl was born and he has Parkinson's disease. So it's been a very hectic 6 months and I've thought about everyone but myself.

    So I want something to get me back on track. I know this plan is a 'quick fix' but that is what I need.

    So here is my diary, to record my ups and downs. I hope to follow some of you for ideas and support.

    I'll post start weight once pack arrives.

    Hi Sarah, your pack should probably be with you by Tuesday. Bet you can't wait to get started, I was the same. What packs have you gone for? My tastes have changed so much. If you go off things you can always sell them or swap them on the slim and save swap shop. The first week is tough, very tough, but you can do it. Will be following your progress x

    I've gone for a whole mixture of everything. I'm not a fan or porridge, so I've chosen either the eggs or a shake for breakfast each day. Then the food packets for the 2nd meal, then cook a meal. Then also have a bar for each day. If it works and I like it then I will know what to order next time. If the bars arnt filling then I guess I could have a shake or meal when I order next time.
    I'm expecting the first week to be extremely hard, I'm excited but petrified. But worried about the portion sizes as I'm a big eater.

    Do you make the shakes with water or milk? I've always drank almond milk but I think I'll have to buy skimmed.

    P.S I have lots of frozen berries in the freezer, I know I can't have fruit on the plan. Might do a berry smoothie with low fat yogurt and almond milk for breakfast and lunch tomorrow. Get myself in diet mode.

    Oh no....what have I let myself in for. Just playing with the planner on their website. After a bar, shake, meal, I have 160 calories left. If I add 100g of chicken and some veg I'm already over 700.

    Hi Sarah, yeah you have to jig around with the planner to stay under. Chocolate and Coconut/Chocolate Praline are the lowest cals, Scrambled egg is high so I've never bothered with it. Oatmeal is lower, I quite llike porridge so I have that or oatmeal. Have a look at the lower cals meals. You get a fair bit of meat for 100g and the veg is all cooked weight too, swede is a good one. Some veg is lower than others. The first week you are going to be starving - no two ways about it, BUT after that you won't be hungry, so smaller portions will be enough.

    Thanks. I'm gonna need all the motivation and support I can get. Especially after nights like last night. I have such a good little girl, she's slept through the night since 4 weeks old and she was breastfed until 5 months. Last night was the first she woke and I'm exhausted, she was hot and hungry and in the end slept with us in our bed.

    Hopefully my pack will arrive tomorrow, can't wait to start. Even tempted to make a low carb healthy breakfast tomorrow morning so that if it arrives tomorrow is my first day.

    I've got a four year old who wakes very early and a 1 year old who still doesn't sleep through so I feel your pain. Spreading your food out across the day helps if you've been up a long time helps as do early nights!

    On a diet - boooo

    Day 1

    Weight = 199.5lbs Bmi = 29.5 = Overweight
    Size = 16

    So i've got up and had a low carb, healthy breakfast, an omlette. I'm just going to wait patiently for my order to arrive and hope it is around lunch and not towards the end of the day. My planned day.

    Breakfast - Omlette with mushroom and spinach
    Lunch - Chocolate Shake
    Dinner - Chilli Con Carne with broccoli
    Snack - Dark Chocolate Truffa

    Drinks - Water...Water....Water and black coffee. I need to buy some tea bags and make it more interesting.

    So thats my planned day, if my order doesnt arrive I may just try and last as long as I can.........I'll be starving.
    I've planned it to use water to make shake? Is that right? or should I be using milk?

    P.S my profile photo is my inspiration. I was a fab size 10/12 here 5ft9. I need to lose 2 and a half stone to reach this weight. My target loss it 3stone. I was happy here at that weight but was still classed as overweight, so by losing 3stone I will be 'normal'

    At the end of August my girl will be one and we are going to book a mini photoshoot for her. So my aim is to hit my target by then. Just over 5 months.

    So we are the same height and want to lose about the same! We can motivate each other I usually get an email telling me an hour time slot for my delivery, have you checked your emails? Good luck this week, I'll keep an eye on you!

    I don't think I can last that long, so that could be a good idea. I have some salad and chicken, so might have that. I'd probably just wait if I wasn't feeling so poorly today.
