So after a few months of messing about with the same half a stone I've decided to give Slim & Save a go to get me back on track. Ive lost 4 stone in all, some on SW and some on WW. I love WW but seem to have fallen off the wagon a bit with it recently. I'm currently 14.7 (havent updated my stats - I like to see the weight I was pre Christmas!!) and hoping to get out of the 14's on my first week.
I've been TTC with OH for 18 months and have my first appointment at the fertility clinic next Thursday so my decision was pretty much made by that. I know I have PCOS which makes it harder to conceive and lose weight but not sure about anything else so with a bit of luck theyll be running some more tests soon. If we need IVF the criteria for my area is BMI 30 which for me is just under 14 stone. I'm sure theyll run the tests anyway while I get to goal but the closer I can be the better as last time I went to hospital for my PCOS my BMI was 37!! Just want to show them I'm serious about losing the weight.
So, I ordered the sample pack online which is coming tomorrow. I'm working 7-5 tomorrow so will be having my last day of 'normal' eating. I think I'm going to have a chicken salad and try to reduce my calories to about 1200 in preparation for Wednesday when I start. I'm only doing a week to start with as I did Cambridge once and was literally gipping at every meal so hoping S&S is nicer.
Just a few questions - you all talk about Ketosis. What is this? Sorry to sound daft but it was a snap decision so havent really researched much.
I'm doing the 4 packs a day to start but you all talk about having veg etc with your meal packs. Am I right in thinking you can have a certain amount of approved veg alongside the packs? Also, there is a lot of mention of carbs and the bars having different amounts. Do I have to count carbs or will the packs balance out to what I'm supposed to have?
God, I'm so unorganised. I havent a clue what I'm diving into here. I'm hoping it'll work for me and if it does I might stick to it until I get a couple of stone off.
I would really appreciate any advice you can give me.
