    Soooooooo.....
    yesterday i made the decision to come off cambridge due to the fact that i "saw" myself for the first time.
    I was sick and tired over xmas being told that i had lost enough weight and it was time to stop. to get to bmi 24.9 i still needed to lose 1 stone and 1lb.
    however trying on a new bra in the shop, i "saw" myself in the flattering(!) light and full length mirror in the shop and i was shocked at how thin i was! i'm not saying that i'm underweight, but for my height and age, i think i have lost enough weight.
    had already booked my induction at the gym for tomorrow in order to tone and tighten some saggy areas, so i have decided that i will just use that alongside healthy eating for a while instead of trying to lose that extra stone.
    i am currently bmi 27.1, 5ft 7" and just about fitting into a size 12.

    the reason for the diary is really just somewhere to go and keep an eye on how i'm doing, and not just let it all go to pot! lol
    any comments welcomed

    Hi hon,

    Hate to be nosy but did you do the steps up to maintenance? Since you're saying 'yesterday I decided to come off'? You're having an awful lot of carbs if you just stopped SS/SS+ yesterday.. it can make you gain weight back if you don't do the steps up.

    Again, hate to be nosy but would hate to see you regain some of your weight due to this, if it is at all the case.

    Either way, well done on coming so far! :) And best of luck with maintenance.

    xxx

    I agree with Lostris, but since it sounds like you have decided to jump straight off?? be careful and be prepared for a glycogen/water gain.


    Looking at your menu. Hope you don't mind me commenting (you did say any comments welcome ;)), you may find that the high carb level leaves you hungry after a few days. Try and 'up' your protein a little to help :)

    Beans with the jacket spud rather than the bread. Nuts (almonds are great) instead of the twiglets - or half and half.

    Very best of luck with the maintenance :)

    Wow!! Ceekay & Lostris you have done an amazing job at losing the weight! How encouraging for those of us just starting off! and you too KD...maintaining in my opinion is one of the hardest things to accomplish after any weight loss! Well done! You are all amazing!

    thanks girls. i did intend to have more protein (and really wanted beans on my jacket spud) but lack of going shopping contributed to my menu choices lol
    have been to the gym today for my first session.....
    got an ex marine pe instructor, who doest like lack of effort, so seems good so far. was quite worn out when i came out.
    menu so far today...
    mini shreddies with skimmed milk
    wafer thin chicken
    banana
    cambridge bar

    Hiya,

    This is a rather quiet part of the forum heheh.

    How are you doing? Feeling okay about the ''real food'' you're having now?

    I myself am quite excited about getting to have real food again in... xx weeks so can't wait to get where you are.

    xx Lostris
