so, finally got round to doing a diary. Just a quick update. I am a 55 year old female, whose daughter is getting married April 12th this year. I have done LT before and lost nearly two stone before low carbing. Managed to maintain until last year. Started Exante on the 9th of January and so far lost 16 pounds, so now weigh 11 stone. My aim is to get back to 9.10 and trying to lose what I can before the wedding. I have been 100 per cent and weight loss is steady so happy with that. I was doing Leslie Sampson's walking video, but had to stop this week due to having some problem with my hip, hopefully I will get back on track exercise wise next week. Today I am struggling, feeling low in mood, not sure why. I am suffering a lot today from hot flushes so maybe I am hormonal, but don't really know. Went to get a coke zero , unfortunately I think I am one of these people who really has to limit the coke zero so will need to be careful. Felt like eating real food at teatime and almost gagged when eating my pasta carbonara but know I will probably be ok tomorrow so trying to be strong. I am going to continue with TS for the next two weeks and then will re-feed due to going on holiday for a week. Not decided yet what to do when I get back, may do W.S due to the hen night being a week after I get back. Hopefully then will return to T.S until a few days before the wedding and then get back on T.S to lose the remainer of the weight. Hopefully my mood will improve tomorrow and will feel more positive. I really don't want to cave in at this point but really struggling.
