    Two stone in 8 weeks for my Engagement Party ~ Can I do it?

    Hello

    On Saturday 25th January 2014 my b/friend comes home after working away and we will have not seen each other for six months, not only am I very excited about seeing him again but it is also the evening of our engagement party.
    When he left four months ago I weighed 16st stone 10 lbs... I now weigh 13st 8 lbs so I have lost just over three stone. I am currently a size 16/18 and would love to be a size 12/14 for our engagement party. I realise this would mean losing around another two stone... my goal being between 11st 10 and 11st 8.

    I have decided to keep a diary for the next 8 weeks for some motivation (I have been flagging after four months of weight loss,) some accountability (I have noticed my portion sizes have crept up slightly and the odd bag of crisps has reappeared on the menu) and to keep me focused. I don't want to lose sight of my hope and dreams of being a new, sexy and slim g/f for when I meet my lovely B/f. And he truly is a lovely guy.

    I plan to eat around 1000 cals a day, generally lowish carb (I don't eat bread, rice and pasta but have the odd potato) and exercise everyday. I'm not a gym bunny but I do walk 1 - 2 hours daily and also do fifteen minutes of toning exercise every day. I actually started last week but have had an indifferent week, I don't get weighed until Monday morning, hopefully two days of being uber-focused may see a pound or two move. It's also my totm so I feel bloated and lethargic lol... who would be a woman?


    Wish me luck...

    Very good luck!

    have you considered a vlcd to shift the weight quick? I found it easier than my own versions.

    Thanks Pheonyx ... At the beginning of the year I lost a lot of hair after finishing breastfeeding... and I know that the VLCD's can cause hair loss. I would rather take a slower route to lose my final two stone rather than lose any more hair lol, I already feel semi-bald compared to what I used to have. So I want to keep eating plenty of protein to ensure this doesn't happen. Thank you for the suggestion though, I have seen some of the VLCD results on here and they look amazing. x x

    I want you more than I want that food.

    Well I lost a pound this week, I knew it wasn't going to be the 3.5lbs per week that I need as I had a bit of an indifferent week (too many bags of crisps) up until Saturday... so now I really have to kick some dieting butt as my weight loss needed for the next 7 weigh-ins is: 3.8lbs a week yikes!

    I have around 30 pkts of Exante shakes and soups to use up from previous VLCD stint, so I think I will have a cple of days each week on Exante (600 cals) to help kick start my weight losses again.

    Today's menu:

    b/fast - Vanilla shake
    lunch - Tom soup
    tea - Choc shake
    snk - white coffee, herb teas
    Total - 660 cals max

    2 pints of water

    Exercise - 2 hr walk, 1 hr dance

    I want you more than I want that food.
    Start weight: 13st 8lbs

    Wk1? - 1lb (13st 7lbs)
    Wk2? - 3lb (13st 4lbs)

    Well done with the weight loss to date Pheonyx... 8lbs for your first week is fantastic... especially as you didn't weigh that much to start with. x x

    Today's menu:

    b/fast - Two slices of corned beef (150) Apple (50)
    lunch - Homemade ham and veg soup (300)
    tea - Ham salad (250 cals)
    snk - white coffee, herb teas, pure cranberry juice (150 cals)
    Total - 900 cals

    2 pints of water

    Exercise - 1 hr walk 1 hr dance

    I want you more than I want that food.

    Slim and save. I loved the results but needed to boost my calories to get a bit more exercise and strength as I'm off skiing in 10 days. I may return to it in the new year and try and drop another stone in 2 weeks, that's be fab!

    b/fast - shake
    lunch - shake
    tea - Soup
    snk - white coffee, herb teas,
    Total - 660 cals

So I want to keep eating plenty of protein to ensure this doesn't happen. Thank you for the suggestion though, I have seen some of the VLCD results on here and they look amazing. x x
    Hair loss is not as common as people think on VLCDs and usually only starts after you've been on them for months, so if you were doing it for only 1 month you should be fine. Also most VLCDs these days are higher in protein than what most of us would normally have in a day as they have discovered that protein us very important in weight loss. I've been on my VLCD for 2 months and honestly can say it's given me great results and I've not lost any hair.
