Okay so i've had to abandon my previous diary cos I have no idea how to edit things on it as I go along, but big thanks to Beverly75 who replied on it and from what I can see has been doing a fabulous job (well done!) Quick update on what I've been doing so far. I officially started CWP 3rd October 2013 and in like two months I lost two stones which made a lot of people scream like 'what are you doing?!', suddenly the tight fit jeans became baggy and clothes I couldn't get into suddenly became my regular clothes.....it was like I got a whole new wardrobe without buying one, my suits became loose especially the skirts where I had to have a safety pin to tuck in the waist otherwise I risked it dropping from my waist. Last time I checked on the scales in 2013 it was reading 87kg....from my starting weight of 106kg. I felt better within myself, it was so crazy when a friend of mine sent me a picture of me in 2010 and when I compared it with a picture of me in 2014 it was like totally unrecognizable! Wow! Well fast forward the holidays and a couple of bad eating choices:sigh: and I noticed myself creeping up slowly on the scale, I wasn't surprised after all cheesecake isn't diet food [a weekly treat at best, but not an every day food], so I decided to arrest the weight and return to the one diet I know works for me- CWP. Today is Day 6 on the CWP and by now I'm sure i'm in ketosis....I'm not ready to pee on a stick to prove it but ah well all I know is that I carry on the plan and let my body figure out the rest. So here are my goals I plan on doing CWP SS 100% up until Good Thursday [the Thursday before Good Friday, I don't know if its actually called that] which will be about a month from when I started, Then give myself the Easter break off [with caution], Resume on the Tuesday after Easter Monday and carry on till June. From June I'm gonna start on the maintenance aspect cos I expect that by then I would be a good deal lighter....does that sound random? I have finally managed to clear out my fridge and my gas cylinder emptying itself last Tuesday was a clear cut sign I needed to start back on Wednesday, no gas means I can't cook which is more efficient than eating out, plus in 'streamlining' my life and pocket I'm giving my usual stores a wide berth, if I can't see it then most likely I can't be tempted. Plus the electricity being out has given me the chance to sort out the fridge without suffering frost bite so that's a plus. No physical temptation means its all in my head and I just have to chug down the shake, drink water and divert my attention. Oh and I'm still undecided on if I want the bars this time around, I think for me it was too much of a good thing, I kinda began eating them as a side dish instead of a main meal, I don't know, if I feel my will power won't hold it up then its best I just stick with le shakes. Will put up my progress as I get on in figures and in emotions, whatever it is I will record it for accountability's sake. It can only get better!
