Me, My Intro & My Weight Loss
Hi there, a quick intro to me. I did the Cambridge Diet back in 2006, I lost 4.5 stone in around 4 months. Felt brilliant for 2 years, became a CD Consultant and with a Christmas and a holiday quite close together put on a little, and then as you can guess, a little more. Another Christmas another holiday, and more gained. I still used the products all that time, but seemed to be in and out of the diet and have now gained too much back and want to give in a proper. A no mucking about go again.
PS I have never professed to know everything about VLCD, I think we are always learning and I'm always open to advice and suggestions from other dieters. I want to follow on here just like you and as a newbie :)
I still work in the Diet Industry with the KeeDiet and years on still have my lovely !! 2 stone to drop. I have so much going on this year that I really want to do this. I tend to do most of my eating in the evening, when tired, during the day I am perfect, always struggle with water but can control. I do believe however that my calorie intake is low and that I should lose weight, but because I'm not, I've decided to join a plan. After CD and now still using some KeeDiet products through the day I am not hungry and my calorie intake is low, possibly around 1000 - 1200 at most.
Working in the dieting environment is both helpful and difficult. I have chosen to come on here as I really want this to be about me and separate from my job. With VLCD diets I see and speak to people everyday that are experiencing great results and are really happy, and although I loved CD products, the KeeDiet ones are just as nice and I know I can do it if I only give myself the same support and advice :). So please don't judge me, I believe we all know what we should do, sometimes it's just difficult to carry that through :)
I have decided to follow the KeeDiet 800kcal Social Plan, 3 VLCD Total products and an evening meal of eg chicken and selection of permitted veggies. I decided on this one rather than the full VLCD as I'm older now, kids have grown and I do eat out more often and don't want to give that up.
So here's the start of my personal count down to drop 28lb, I'm happy to take it slower this time, happy to have a constant lose on my scales and realistic that with my low thyroid and age it makes it harder but not impossible ;)
So hope it's ok for me to be on here, if not I'm sure I'll get booted off :) but hoping not xx
