Freya's Weight Loss Diary
Thought I'd start a diary to record my journey to a healthy weight to help keep me on track with my new lifestyle!
I have lost about 75 pounds since Christmas, but the losses have really slowed down in the last month, so time to kick it up a notch! I started calorie counting and couch to 10k this week, and am really enjoying the exercise! I am using a free app on my phone that tells you when to run and walk, which I find really helpful as I don't have to think about how long I have left!
I started my new eating plan yesterday after all non-plan food was finished, but found I was really hungry between breakfast and lunch. So today I have changed things about a bit, and going to do my running before dinner rather than first thing in the morning, and had 50% more breakfast, cutting out my evening snack as I didn't really need it yesterday!
So far today I have had 60g cereal with 200ml skimmed milk and 200ml of orange juice for breakfast for 406 kcal. Waited until 10am to eat breakfast, and only just starting to think about lunch, so the change has worked so far!
I have also walked the dogs for 1hr30, but am not counting this as exercise as my heart rate wasn't up high enough for it too feel it counts!
I am trying for a big push to lose 4 stone for Christmas, so about 3lbs a week. I know it's ambitious but if I don't make it at least I tried! My dad is away travelling until then, and he was so worried about me at my biggest that I would love to be looking really different when he next sees me!
Off to heat up my soup for lunch, so another 260kcal!
