Janes Diary

Hi Everyone

Just been reading through all the diaries and information and I feel like I’m in the same room as you all lol.
I’m Jane 36 and have been a yo yo diet all my life, never got to my goal however have tried very hard. I did LL 2 years ago to the day and lost 4 1/2 stone. I felt fabulous, I went on hols as planned and only put on 7 lbs ate for 2 weeks and got the weight off within the week. A week later the group was finishing as the counsellors were giving it up so guess what? So did I. So for the past 2 years I have been on ww,sw,cd and LL again. I have managed to maintain a 31/2 stone loss but I am so sick of been over weight now that this is my finally straw. So I have decided to take on Exante purely for the price and this forum is brilliant. I have been a member of minis for a number of years and loved looking around and chatting, very rarley posted but I intend to do a diary entry each day so at least I know I’m telling someone that can understand what my day is like. I started Monday just gone and I want to lose 3 stone by 1st September 2011. Then when I come back from my hols proceed with the diet until goal. So after waffling I will just say hi to everyone and I look forward to reading your blogs and info.
Good Luck

Jane :D

Hello Jane, welcome to our merry band and good luck. I'm also 36 and did LL a few years ago, I'm finding Exante works really well and it is so satisfying getting that weight to go away. Hope all goes well as you get started on the packs and that you're in ketosis very soon.
Good luck

Hi Jane
You sound pretty determined which is a great start. I'm new to Exante and to VLCD, this is the first, I'm 4 days in and can honestly say I've not found it too difficult so far although I am hungry tonight for the first time really.

Good luck, hope it all goes well and we can all help each other along.

Day 5

Hello folks

Hope everyone is well. :)
Day off work today and surprisingly been ok. I had a wee on a stick today and yes I’m in ketosis I’m glad because I had a Dr P zero last night and a coke zero today and was anxious it would kick me out. I had my first orange and choc bar from Extante today and quite liked it. I was working out some goals today to keep me motivated and worked out I would love to lose 40lbs in 12 weeks?? Possible?? If I was to judge what I lost 2 years ago on LL in 12 weeks then yes, but I’m 3 1/2 stone lighter now, not sure if that makes a difference. But need to aim for this l feel positive and motivated that I can do this, the sun is shining and I’m going to take my dog for a nice walk..
Bye for Now good luck everyone :D x
Day 6

Day 6
A CBA day today. I didn’t get any sleep last night, must be the diet because I never have any probs. Anyway Day 6 and doing ok. My new bars arrived today they are called Choc truffa and they are lovely. They are from a company called Key2weight.com, the company was set up by my ex LL leaders last year and they are lovely. Don’t fill you up as much as the extante bars but they are around 128 cals do the difference is about 50 cals and they give u a choc fix. They do have some good products on there like cottage pie and spag bol with real pasta. The company is a legit one and follows all the correct guide lines its just extante is cheaper for the bumper packs . I was suppose to go swimming today but haven’t had the energy so took dog for walk and relaxed all day. I’m defo still in ketosis after my few cheeky coke zeros and dr ps. So that’s my day, been craving today but only natural it’s been 6 days without any of my normal treats so just need to focus. Day 7 tomorrow, my whole day will be taken up with going to see the x factor auditions and you can’t take drink or food so a bonus will just take a bar. I’m looking forward to Monday for my weigh in. Good luck everyone

Hi Jane, you are doing really well. I am on day 1 (you replied on my diary) and have gone to bed before I eat my arm. Have kept busy all day, so just suffered a bit tonight and had a coke zero. I was surprised that they were allowed as I know how strict cd was when I did it years ago. I wish I was in your position at almost day 7 - it seems a long way off at the mo. On a positive I am at the end of day one and have had no food, which I have never managed will all the retries of cd, so that's a positive - I would always convince myself to add a meal and it always ended up being a disaster for me. Anyway, need to tell myself that this is temporary and remember how I gelt when I lost weight with cd. Hope you have a good day tomorrow, Caroline x

Day 7

What a day got up really early to go and see thex factor auditions so had a bar and coffee for brekkie. Drove to Manchester with BF and mother in law to meet 2 friends to find 1000s of people just qeueing up. My friend was near the end of the line and you could tell the heavens were about to open so me,BF and Mil took one look and said no way lol gave the tickets to my mate and drove home. What a waste of a sunday morning could of stayed in bed and watched hollyoakes lol anyway didnt pay for tickets so no money wasted. Last heard from my friend at 3pm and they had just opened the doors. The doors were suppose to open at 12pm. So thank goodness i didnt stay. Anyway diet today has been very straight forward Bf took his mum out for brekkie at supermarket so no smells in the house, I do have a fab BF supporting me all the way. So i have just cleaned up and washed clothes all day. Been on the laptop for a couple of hours playing games and on minis. Not feeling hungry, missing food but pushing along and trying to be as motivated as I can. Tomorrow is the big day, my first weigh in :eek: hope its good. Gonna have more of a look around the site then off to do some ironing. Hope everyone is ok and still going strong. :)

Until tomorrow :confused: xx


Doing it exante style :)

Day 8

Hi Moonie and everyone . Im happy with what I lost today. I had the day off work and went swimming and had a sauna pure bliss. Im feeling bored at mo with not eating so it is important that I keep myself busy. Im back at work tomorrow so wont be a problem. I have started to write down things i want to buy when im slimmer and the way I want to feel when I get to goal. Might sound a little silly but when i start questioning myself why im doing this i look at my lists and it helps. So Day 8 out of the way role on double numbers. Good luck everyone xxx
Day 9 & 10 has gone really fast. Im hoping the next few days will go as fast for my second wi lol. Going swimming tommorrow before work so hoping to drop a few pounds with the exercise :)
Good luck everyone xx
