So I did this diet about 4 years ago.
Here I am again.
I would like to lose 4 stone at least by September as we going on holiday in November.
I have given my self time to transfer from VLCD to normal eating for when we go away.

So last time I did total solutions.
I have decided to go with man plan this time.
Armed with lots of sparking water , I am ready to do this!

So it’s day one for me.
Breakfast porridge
Lunch. Shepherd pie ( I didn’t enjoy this at all and have 8 packs of it)
Dinner. Carbonara with 30 grams ham, 100 grams courgette, pouch water noodles

Today has not been to hard to be honest. I have looked through the extras and going to add Worcestershire sauces to the Shepard’s pie product.
I have only got enough meals for two weeks pretty much the same ones ( boring I know) but I wanted to be sure I can stick to it before buying more.

The water enhancers are Amazing, get some.

Day two ( sorry I didn’t write it yesterday)

Man plan. God I was hungry today. Still waiting for ketosis to kick in.
I been adding slim rice/ pasta to help bulk out my meals. ( no more than 2 a day)
I added courgette again to my evening meal and had 2 boiled eggs.
Hoping not to keep jumping on the scales but I am a serial weigher.
i know this will be worth it. I just got to stay on plan.
Reading lots of inspiration quotes today.
Got a massage booked for Wednesday night so looking forward to that treat.
Have started looking at smaller clothes I might want to wear once I drop few stone( yes looking already but you need to plan right😂🤣👌🙏🏻)
Will post again tomorrow xxx

So my post yesterday was super short. Got on scales today and it's saying the same as yesterday.
I did buy a dress that is 3 sizes smaller than my current size. It was in a sale .
So now I want to get in that dress .
I am going to up my fluids today. As I was out yesterday I only manages about 2 of the 4 litres I would normally have. Tomorrow is official weigh in day, super excited and scared all at the same time.
Today is going to be a great day.
Keep positive and true to your selfs on this diet.
If you need a bit extra have it but make sure it’s on the allowed extras.
This is such a tuff diet , so if you have to tweak it do.
I think that has helped me this week rather than feeling like you failed( because that’s when your to hard on your self for having extra boiled egg) just be like, well you know what that’s ok.

Thank you for all you kind and supportive words, this helps me no end. Xxxxxxx

The cold is hard but you get used to it tbh I layer up

Once I’d lost 2 stone I went from TS to flexi and lost a further 1.5 st. 800 calories is more manageable for me.

I maintained for 9 weeks, then got lazy, emotional and stressed and now need to shift 10lbs.

Would recommend electrolytes tablets, drinking warm bouillon and hot baths before bed are a treat
