Cait's Diet Diary


Full Member
Alright, I am a bit of a newbie so advise at will. ;)

Firstly, I weigh about 11 1/2 st., I will post my first "official" weight tomorrow.

Secondly, I want to weigh about 9st.

Thirdly, I need to find a way to get there so I am currently going to "experiment" with different diets/ways of eating/whatever to get there.

Fourthly, I am going to try and post here everyday just for an update at least.

Fifthly, I am open to any advice, comments or opinions on my diet.......... so long as it is constructive, please don't be mean!!! :p I need all the help I can get.

Welcome Cait!

Hi Cait,

Delighted to see you do a diary as it really does help to keep the focus.

I would love to be 9 stone myself by Christmas, but I will settle for 10:)

Good luck with your weight loss journey and if you need any help be sure to ask.

Love Mini xxx
Thanks for the welcome Roch and Mini!

Roch--- I think that my BMI is 27, but I'll weigh myself when I get up and post a true reading for a fresh start. :)

Oh dear! So many posts already and I have only been here a day. I suppose that tells a bit about me............. I am a horrible procrastinator when it comes to doing my work!
HI Cait!

What kind of diets have you done in the past? Any been successful?
I am a firm believer of finding the right diet to suit your life style so experimenting with a few sounds good!! I have been on loads of diets but am now on CD. I find the results fantastic and keep me motivated and the plan although hard is just the best thing i've ever done.

keep us updated and keep posting. I look forward to reading about your experiments!! :)
Thx Helen and Roch! :)

Okay; here are my stats:

Name: Cait
Age: 23
Height: 5'5"
Weight: 11st.8lbs
BMI: 27
Diet type: Experimenting.
Diets tried in the past: WW mainly and calorie counting.
Goal weight: 9st

I have been a bit overweight for most of my life and my mom took me to a nutritionist when I was 13, but it has always been a struggle. I want to lose about 2st.8lbs so that I can finally be slim like every other 20-something girl wants to be. My goal is to go somewhere hot this summer and wear a bikini (cos I'm also planning on getting a boob job this March!! I can't wait, I have always been very small-busted).

So, that is my story....................
Let the weight loss begin!!!!!!
Just testing out my tracker! They are so cool. :)
Heehee!! I lost a 1/2 lb yesterday!

I ate probably about 1200 kcalories and drank lots of water.

My nutrition is atrocious, though, I will admit that I had a bigggg chocolate bar included in that 1200cal and that can't be good. :eek: :p :eek:
Ahh...big chocolate bar...*sighs wistfully*

Well done on the half pound- and good luck with the experiment!
Ummmm, I am not so sure about the all-chocolate diet.

I came home today feeling really low, tired and I had a tummyache. Then, I started talking to my mom and just started to throw a complete pity party about my weight and some other issues I have........I bawled. :(
On the bright side I have lost another 1/2lb. On the downside I feel like cr*p.
I think I'll maybe eat some raw fish tomorrow and just get some healthy energy into my suger-ridden body.
Oh yeah, maybe I should also stop drinking the red bull every morning on drive to school......... that stuff seriously gives me the shakes.......but I feel like I need it at 6:30am.........
What about trying the GI diet as it helps stabilise your blood sugars and should help with feelings of lethargy etc.

Well done on losing though - wish they did do a 'healthy' chocolate diet. I'd be on that in a flash!!!
WOW - Chocolate thats good for you!! :) Problem is it's dark chocolate and i'm not a fan. I like my dairy milk too much!!
Might get some for my mum as a christams present though - wonder if they ship it?
Ok, so I decided to give Cambridge a go. I will be starting on or about Tuesday of next week, so I will be sure to give a thorough update then, until then I am going to try and lesser the fats, sugars and starches like they recommend.
And hopefully keep the calories to under 1600!!
Keeping accountable:
Alright, my weight has been up and down the past couple weeks. So I am down now 1.5 but that is still up 2 from where I started! Hopefully it is just water weight which will get duly passed through my system (esp. once I start cd!!). :)
Keeping accountable:
Down total of 2lbs.
I start Cambridge in T-36 hrs.
I WILL NOT have a binge-out before I begin.

Not down anything more.
But..........I start Cambridge tomorrow so I am sure to lose more weight soon!............ :)
I made it!!!!!!!!!
I had 4 tootsie roll chocolate shakes (meaning I added orange and vanilla extracts) and it wasn't half bad and I drank allllllllll the water and I managed.
I got a bit tired today adn took a nap (which helped take my mind off of food) and so far so good......................
