Right, so I've not been on for a bit. Basically the weekend before last I was away for the weekend planning my wedding, including cake tasting etc, so I drew a line under all that and started from scratch on 9th of July. I decided to go with the 800 calorie a day Man Plan just because emotionally it made me feel better.
I am flipping DELIGHTED so far! I'm nicely settled into ketosis now, on the first shade of pink on my box of keto sticks consistently. I have totally lost my appetite but feel alert, awake, in fact less tired than I have in a long time. I've managed to cut my caffeine intake right down to maybe two cups of coffee a day as opposed to eight-ten cups.
Best of all though, so far I have lost 11 pounds and an inch and a half off my waist! I can now just about get into my wedding dress, so it will definitely fit me beautifully before the big day!
Some days I have four packs but some days I just have three, because honestly I feel stuffed and don't want to eat a fourth. It's such a good feeling. The first maybe, 5 days I looked at the teensy portions and felt deprived, but now I have one and feel satisfied and content. I admit, I am missing vegetables, so last night I treated myself to a handful of spinach in my spaghetti bolognese pack.
I feel so motivated right now. I hope it keeps up, because now I've got through the first hump, this feels easy.
