    Hi babe, i think your targets should be more realistic, firstly what is your BMI? In my opinion its impossible to lose 28lbs in 28days.. let me explain..

    3,500 calories = 1lb

    According to what the person says above youll be eating 3,500calories less everyday... im 99% sure you dont eat 3,500cals a day which means youd have to starve for 28days to lose 28lbs, a realistic target is around 1-2lbs away but if you work hard you can lose a stone in a month, if you need any more help or advice just let me know :)

    day 1 mon 24th -14'7
    day 2 tues 25th -14'4
    day 3 wed 26th- 14'2

    breakfast

    egg white, orange juice and berry smoothie

    late morning

    half breast chicken, half pepper, half onion and curry sauce

    late afternoon

    half breast chicken, half pepper, half onion and curry sauce

    snack

    carrots

    dinner

    7 rice cakes

    overall im happy. so please continue to support me to make a go at it. its the kickstart i really need. christmas isnt generaly that bad for me usually because i dont have alot of christmas parties and i am not the biggest drinker.


    for those out there thinking that 28lbs is too high a target, i know. you see im an all or nothing girl, in short im addicted to food, and i find that i succeed way more when i keep to a healthy regime. in the new year im going to try and over come compulsive overeating but over the past few weeks ive felt so crap after all the junk i was eating that i decided i needed a kick start to put me in good spirits again. last new year, i was 13 and a half stone for my 21st and im determined to be that again for xmas, after that we'll just see but any more off will be much appreciated!


    p.s. if it works i will be recruiting people for the post xmas detox!!! ;)

    oh hunny i know. weekends are desperate. friday ur like oooh its the weekend lets do something and eat something tasty, same idea sat and same idea sun. but listen hey we all fall off the wagon so the main thing is that we just get right back up again!!! i nearly gave up this week but then i just looked in the mirror and saw not only the weight but how miserable i looked. so its about being happy and healthy!!!


    fortunately i dont drink much but much as i love healthy food im a choc/chip/icecream/pizzaholic! even as i type i crave chips. but no cos day four and i can already feel the end of the first week, my eyes are brighter, im not as tired, not bloated. im feeling pretty good. lost a half a pound yesterday, so happy out. just gonna keep going with it until christmas. have also made out a plan for christmas that while i will indulge on christmas day i plan to do my best to even it out. i dont wanna blow it all one one holiday. theres alot more to christmas than food! (although its a hefty part!!! :p)

    anyway day four and we're doing good so happy out.

    day 1 mon 24th -14'7
    day 2 tues 25th -14'4
    day 3 wed 26th- 14'2
    day 4 thur 27th- 14'1.5

    breakfast

    big smoothie- lots of berries, orange juice and 2 egg whites. yummy! 1 packet of mini honey flavoured rice cakes

    snack, well i had a hefty morning at college whichc ran way past lunch, so i had 3 packs of the rice cakes(mini single packs, not s in full packets!).i am annoyed cos i should have brought fruit in but i just think of what i could normally do under stress and that would have been, packet of crisps, chocolate and a scone with butter so hey baby steps! its all a learning curve!

    evening

    large plate of salmon in a tomatoe sauce and rice

    Its a big goal, and its hard to lose 1 pound every day. Avoid too much stress, because it can give a bad impact to your health. A 20 minute cardio and a light non-fat snack can help.

    no to be honest ive lost interest in the goal. its not important. i feel so much better because im eating things that agree with me. the weight will come off when its ready. im 14 stone 1.5 lbs and if i lost ten pounds between now and xmas id be happy. im just gonna keep going and see what happens.

    day 1 mon 24th -14'7
    day 2 tues 25th -14'4
    day 3 wed 26th- 14'2
    day 4 thur 27th- 14'1.5
    day 5 fri 28th- 14'1.5


    breakfast

    smoothie-in the mood for something sweet, filling and tasty to keep me going for the morning, so put in a low fat non dairy version of a favourite smoothie of mine called monkey business.

    orange juice,
    one banana
    teaspoon of peanut butter
    1 egg whites
    dash of honey
    some oats(just a small handful)

    snacks

    apple
    small bowl of oats throughout the day
    1 rye slice with a teaspoon of peanut butter

    dinner
    ok so went for dinner with my boyfriend right to a place called gourmet burger in dublin, now as you can guess from the name it specialises in burgers Now normally in a place like this id eat like a huge beef burger with a huge cheesy topping and sauce with a side of fries and it would be a bap. plus id dip the fries in like garlic mayo. Tonight i opted for a goats cheese and aubergine burger, with no bun and a side salad and some relish. i shared some chips with my boyfriend and i had no sauce. i drank a litre of water after and i walked for an hour uphill. so all in all i was happy with myself.



    thanks for the support eveyone!!!

    well its been an iffy week. very stressed out with final year, exhausted and have a face covered with eczema so not too happy. still managing to retain quite healthy though, have avoided wheat as much as possible and havent really touched dairy.

    had this morning an orange, banana, honey and spinach smoothie with a teaspoon of peanut butter

    thursday 4th december

    lunch at 3 was a mexican faghita wrap, a homemade back of crisps and a nutrigrain. not the best but it was the best of a bad college option. wil go to the supermarket tonight and stock up on fruit and veg so i can juice the hell out of it for the next week!

    dinner

    couldnt resist it- bag of microwave popcorn!

    exercise- 40 minute power walk. weights session. squats lunges and back presses.

    thanks for all the support. xxx

    ok so im an nearly half way through the 28 days and i am down over half a stone so i am a happy camper. yesterdays day was meh and im having a full breakfast with my bf before we go xmas shopping, but the biggest thing ive noticed is im only eating when im hungry. to be honest the 28lbs isnt important. i am doing a juice detox from tomorrow until next sat as a friend of mine does them regularly and finds the cleanse brilliant. i stocked up yesterday so im ready to roll.

    will do a weigh in tomorrow to start it off. but all in all im happy.

    happy xmas everyone. love jan. xxx

    today was sooooo nice. i had a the loveliest day with my bf and it didnt revolve around food! at 11 we did have a full brekkie but it was all grilled and no grease, then at 4 we split a sundae and a milkshake as we went xmas shopping and that was something i did as a kid with my dad every year and just thought hey why not.for dinner ill just have some soup if even cos im still stuffed. this past few weeks ive really been trying to battle compulsive overeating and im so glad to feel that im finally succeeding. my bf has been really supportive and i just feel as though ive come on so much. normally on treat days id literally eat a shop out of choc, ice cream and pizza, have a takeway, and just pig, but today i had a treat as in one treat and i dont feel hard done by in fact i enjoyed it more than any treat ive ever had. heres to minimins for all your love and support and heres to us slimmers for doing our best and what more for wanting to do it!


    happy christmas miniminners! love jan xxx
