    I love my blueberry pancakes sometimes I have banana pancakes too yum!!

    The scales are dropping good so far I started 1st jan 13.7. Did 10 days on a vlcd and couldn't do anymore and I'd got down to 12.11. But when you eat you gain 4-7lbs back. So I went back up into the 13s again. But sneaky peaks and I'm back down into the 12s. Target has always been get to 10 stone again but I've tried for 8 years and never got there so I'm aiming for 10.7 as my size 8-10 clothes will fit. But if my body decides to drop to 10 then bonus :)

    Well I'm stuffed I enjoyed the turkey, salad and avacado for my evening meal that will keep me going until tomorrow.

    You must feel great being at your target and controlling it too

    Thank you.
    I'm really pleased and shocked at the scales how they are dropping so quickly that's 1 stone I've lost this year so far pretty pleased with myself and the results. Onwards to week 2 lets see some more pounds drop off.

    Does anyone know what the usual second week weight loss is ?
  7. miss vlcd38

    miss vlcd38 Well-Known Member

    ah ok well as long as my health improves im sure the weight will even its self out. ive not had any problem with my stomach since i started and i would suffer from really bad belly aches and the most awful wind for 7 hours so bad usually if i had eaten anything with gluten. since last monday ive felt absolutely fine, my periods not even caused me any bother either. main thing apart from wanting to get to target is i would like my thyroid to maybe heal or at worst stay the same and no get any worse.

    im going to leave it 6 months and then have another blood test to check my thyroid medication and would be lovely to have my dose lowered.

    the scales have dropped lots this week i got on them one day and i had dropped another 2lbs so thought ill not get on them tomorrow then 2 days later they are down another 2lbs i just stood there a bit shocked as ive never been able to lose weight when i eat food.
    i gained weight doing slimming world i had to give it up as i was getting fatter by sticking 100 percent to their plan. it was rapid weight gain too which isnt very good to feel your legs and stomach swelling everytimet you eat.

    Got to say i think this is definately my life long eating plan :) loving the food

    day 9

    well im feeling very good even though im on my period no pains in my stomach or nothing im feeling great.
    this morning i decided to try on my next size 12 jeans that i havent been able to fit into since around october. last week i couldnt get them up past top of my legs let along my bum and stomach and today omg im wearing them. they are snug but not to the point everything hangs over the top. rather pleased with myself for that achievement as i have been walking around in leggings and black trousers since my jeans wouldnt fit.

    i got on the scales today wasnt expecting any loss as i only weighed in yesterday but again the scales are still moving in the downward direction.

    eating plan today

    blueberry pancakes

    omlettee with prawns (4) courgette, spring onions, half a pepper served with a rocket salad and celery and cuecumber.

    steak with a big salad


    im really getting to grips with this healthy way of eating and enjoying all my food.

    I've had the lobster in the freezer for what seems llke forever but I do love it.

    As for the kangaroo the butchers in town sells it all crocodile bison alsorts so I decided to buy one a week and try it. So today it's the roo.

    Never tried it before so shall be interesting :).

    Plus it's all wild and paleo I plus they aren't grain fed as they are wild so I guess it's better for me.

    Hey, found your new diary!


    Glad to hear it's going so well, really pleased I switched from VLCD to this, it's so much more fun and I feel good about meals now and not deprived!

    Hope you get another good loss this week.

    I can't work out how much we are meant to lose each week, some say 1-2lbs a month, others are nothing and then in the Daily Mail they had a guy that lost 8stones in 5 months! I guess time will tell!

    Will be watching with interest how you do. How long have you been going Karate? I used to do Shotokan Karate years ago, got to brown belt lol.. would love to do it again but not fit enough yet.
  16. miss vlcd38

    miss vlcd38 Well-Known Member

    My boys used to do shotokan karate too

    I've been going 3 weeks and love it as they use some kick boxing stuff too.

    Weight loss can be slow at times but it does come off so better to assess losses per month.

    I'm not expecting any loss this week as I've lost 1 stone during this month so far

    Not posted for a while as I had a blip but the occasions are out of the way.

    Plus still having bf trouble which kicked off again at the weekend this I went out and drank some alcohol and danced.

    Anyway Monday back on plan not too much damage. I'm out this weekend to my friends 30th and I'm driving so just water for me. Would like a first week gush but what ever I lose is a bonus.
