    ok so with christmas being five weeks away and having successfully done ten days into my 28 day challenge to cut out refined sugar from my diet and as a result beating off cravings, im moving onto the next challenge- carbs.

    ive dramatically cut down on carbs over the past few weeks and replaced them with vegtables and fruit and ive decided to start a 28 day detox off them tomorrow. this i find im less lethargic, have more energy and im no longer getting sick as much. my stomach is flatter and my skin is glowing. :D

    so as off tomorrow i am off

    pasta-
    bread- allergies to gluten anway

    crisps
    rice
    potatoes

    wish me luck!

    im on a roll :D

    really good actually ive stuck to it reasonably well. gonna try super hard this week. given that ive cut out refined suar and cut down on carbs hugely i feel great. i have a gluten intolerance as it is so its great to not be eating stuff that doesnt agree with me. to be fair im not so strict that like i wont have fish if its got breadcrumbs on it, or i cant have soup if it has potato in it. like ive cut down hugely but im not unrealistic. and i dont beat myself up for slips. like im going for dinner sat night with family and to be fair while i do make healthier choices, if i have some steak or fish sat night, ill have a small bit of potato too. im trying to make a lifestyle change overall. i wanna be 12 stone for xmas and new year so i can start 2010 at the right end of the weightloss game! even xmas ill allow myself some potatoes at dinner but im not ruining all my hard work and making myself sick by eating too much crap. i feel great and last xmas i ate so much i just was ill. ill enjoy my dinner. but im not gonna tuck into the chocs and crisps. ive come too far! :D
