Abz' Diary - Maid of Honour

    Well i'm a maid of honour in five weeks time and i need to skinnify!! i'm already the biggest bridesmaid by quite a long shot but am quite happy in the fact that i can look good. i have one problem... boob size!!

    my best friend, who seems to have far more faith in me than me myself bought the dresses. when i tried it on the sizes were skewed, especially for bust size, but she decided i could fit into it. that was a month ago. i now fit fine into the top, in fact it looks really nice, except for the boobs, which, quite frankly, look pretty pornographic. so that's my goal. i want to be a non porn maid of honour. in five weeks. so i would like to lose about nine lbs in that time. am finishing off a detox in which i have so far lost 5.5lbs in 11 days so need to ease into something so i don't gain all that back. am thinking of giving juddd a try, starting on a down day from tomorrow.

    wish me luck guys!!

    Good luck Abz, but don't get too hung up about your boob size. Mine actually got bigger as I lost the weight but I know that doesn't happen to everyone. I'm sure that the bride was well aware of them when she decided on the dresses so she must be ok with it and if you feel a bit on display ask for a cover-up of some description. 9lb is a totally realistic amount to lose so I'm sure you can do it.

    well it's the end of my first day of the month and all has gone to plan. it's the last day of my detox tomorrow and since it's so low calorie i'm also going to use it as the first day of my juddding experiment. it is an experiment many seem to have tried and failed but i can't resist giving it a shot...

    i am expecting to pub on a lb or two to begin with since i've been following such a strict regime but would like to have lost at least a lb by the end of the week.

    watch this space... and wish me luck. cross everything, rub your four leaf clovers, whatever it takes.

    well it's getting towards the end of day one of my juddd experiment, and the final day of my detox and i'm starving!! only to be expected though. and i'm looking forward to a nice lunch tomorrow. perhaps a small panini at work. that will be my treat. am also going to the cinema so might get a couple of fizzy cola bottles. i'm going to have to be restrained i know, but the point of this is that you counteract anything you eat on an up day with insanely low cal counts on a down day. like i say. it's experimental. let's see how it goes. for now i just need to not eat!! aaargh.

    Well I am going to try to have a 'down' day tomorrow and see how it goes. I don't go out on a Tuesday night so I guess it will be easier

    500 cals is so hard to stick to!! i have basically eaten a few bits of fruit and a carrot at work. and an egg for brekkie. and now have had a teeny weeny squeeny ww shepherds pie and an apple for my tea and that's it. my stomach is in rebellion!!

    i have managed to drink plenty of water today though. so that's good. so my weigh in tomorrow is the end of my detox nightmare, ha. although i have just broken it with that shepherd's pie, my only indescretion for the entire 11 day experience but i wasn't sure how to get through today otherwise... so i'm counting it as having made it. i didn't sleep last night and didn't drink any caffeine today even though i was making fresh coffee for others so i call that an achievement :D

    hopefully tomorrow morning will let me know i've lost half a stone. then i can start counting towards 15. haven't been 15.5 stone in about a year, ha.

    well i've gotten over the hunger. my stomach has accepted that that is all it's getting. i'm still getting the urge to eat but then i've been resisting that for a couple of weeks now, ha.

    i think the best idea is for me to go to bed. tomorrow is an up day, woohoo!! still want my egg for brekkie. i am thinking of getting a panini (how many times have i mentioned this panini in the last couple of days ha, have been dying for one for weeks!!) but they do bikini paninis which are low fat, roast veg and low fat mozz, that kind of thing, so i'll get one of those i think. and then a couple of fizzy cola bottle sweeties (again with the mentioning) when we go to see INDIANA JONES at the cinema tomorrow night. the johnson uddd site suggests 2161 as my limit for an up day so if i eat sensibly the rest of the day i don't think i'll come close to hitting that!! plus, i want my average calorie intake to be lower than 1600 a day. i want to lose more than a lb a week. but here's hoping the experiment works!!

    wish me luck. hopefully i won't eat myself into a chocolate induced state of exstasy. part of this experiment is for me to be able to have a little bit of something and not think of it as 'bad' food. otherwise i'll never be able to eat healthily. so i'm hoping i'll be able to restrict myself on up days... here's hoping. of course i could fall flat on my arse...

    hey linzi. well so far so good. i still wanted a hard boiled egg for brekkie so i had that. i'm now having a roast veg and low fat mozzerella panini for lunch. when i was in the panini shop the smells were amazing. they do fantastic french bread pizzas and muffins and flapjack and all sorts but i managed to stick to what i'd decided i'd have. damage limitation as i want to have a few sweeties tonight at the cinema :)

    it is a strange feeling being able to have 'what i want' but i still need to watch myself. i know myself too well. it's a strange feeling though, that's for sure. no clue what i'm going to have for tea but i'll think of something :) knowing me it will end up being chicken and mushroom and boiled rice from the chinese. then i'll have had all three things i was craving whilst on detox and hopefully won't want them again for a while!!

    how are you doing today linzi?

    Sounds like you've got the right mindset for doing it too which is half the battle!
    I have to leave 5 hours between meals & had my baby girls swiming lesson today so got major shakes after swimming til I had lunch! Was soooooooooo tempted by some french bread but resisted!

    Just take it slowly and don't go mad. It will be a shock to your system so introduce food groups slowly

    oh good. i've had two portions today. i must be extra healthy... i'd forgotten how dangerous i was around crisps. still. i could have been much worse. so far an egg, an apple, a roast veg and low fat mozz panini and two bags of crisps. i have a salad lined up for tea so that's good and a sweetie or two at the cinema. far more indulgent than i meant to be but it is my first day on a non strict regime in quite some time. at least i haven't gone completely mental. i mean, those pizzas and muffins and flapjacks at lunchtime looked lovely!!

    well i went mad with the pick n mix but we all knew i would right? ha. as a result i didn't want any dinner, hardly healthy but at least i didn't eat anyways. and i've been put off pick and mix for a while. it wasn't as nice as i'd hoped, despite two weeks of craving.

    second down day today. i have brought in some cup a soups which should help with the feeling like i'm eating meals kind of thing. meant to get some ryvita but haven't had chance. will get those for next time.

    wish me luck. i'm going to be hungry all day again :(
