    Ok guys i am starting my new years resolution early this year in a bid to enjoy my christmas in a way that does not revolve around food and thus make me feel fat, overfed and insecure during the holiday season. tomorrow i start my new diary in a bid to keep me on track as a means of a new healthy lifestyle, as i adapt a new lifestyle where i eat to keep myself energised, healthy and full, and not just for the sake of it.

    wish me luck x

    ughhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    i have a gastric tummy viral bug! so in the words of the doctor- jelly, mashed banana and dry toast for the next two days!

    just had four slices and a half of spelt toast and really really regret it. dont think ill be eating for the day! defo taking it easy over xmas. has one choc rich tea biscuit and regret it big time. ughhhhhh. :(


    ok so meds kicked in and was starved. had two slices of spelt bread and 2 and a half small boiled potatoes and a fork ful of chicken kiev like as in an inch! im so bad. shouldnt touch any of it. feeling ok its a catch 22 when i eat cos it can make me feel sick but then hunger can make me feel weak so ive stuck to plain foods pretty much.

    in total today reckon there was 750 for bread and butter and about 150/200 for potatoes so that with two cups of tea with some sugar prob in or around the 950 mark.


    feeling much better. tomorrow is bread soup and jelly! and no 7up free just water. gonna stick to doc orders but gonna try be healthy. the joys i actually miss my veg and prawns :(

    ok so think im over the bug except to make this bloody week work and to make my stomach even worse I got my time of month this week. i have pcos so this i dont know when i get it as they are irregular. anyway yeah. sick of bread and jelly. and today had a bar of choc and 4 digestives. but only had one bar and didnt tear into anything else. mom had gralic bread and pizza for dinner and i said no so im quite proud.

    anyway

    breakfast was two slices spelt bread and jelly 280cals

    lunch two small fruit scones no butter and fruit all picked out- 300

    dinner was three slices spelt bread and spread- 400

    4 digestive- 236

    bar- 295

    bite (as in bite) of cake

    coffee with sugar- 50

    3 fruit pastilles- 40


    around 1650!

    gonna stick to simple foods for the rest of the week. dont think choc was a smart move for the stomach and sick of bread as ive given it up and this week it was pretty much all i could stomach.

    gonna try for
    banana for brekkie
    soup for lunch
    chicken and veg and maybe some potato for dinner

    plain foods.

    feeling much better! finished meds on tuesday. now to get through this week successfully without binging on xmas day! has some sticky toffee pudding and 3 minstrels today! am couting this week out seeing as i wasnt allowed eat much veg and fruit and yoghurts and therefore made eating healthily quite difficult.



    new years resolution is to stop yoyoing and just cut the dairy, refined sugar and gluten out. i believe im 85% of the way there with it and that for the new year i will reach 100%.

    for the next four days my menu is

    organic natural yoghurt with bran, banana and flaxseed. small glass orange juice

    homemade veg soup

    king prawns and roasted vegtables.

    four complexes to be done this week, one each night.

    menu for christmas day is as follows

    yoghurt, bran and banana and flaxseed.


    christmas dinner

    i hate pudding and trifle.

    NO CHOCOLATE.

    hi losemenow :)
    your diary was an interesting read. maybe theres a few suggestions i can make...hope you don't mind..maybe instead of planning ahead so thoroughly and setting yourself such restrictive, harsh food targets, maybe concentrate on making healthy choices at each meal time. this needs to be a lifestyle change because once you lose the weight you will want to stay at that weight...its not just a case of eating celery until youre thin then being able to eat cake and biscuits again. im definitely sure you probably know this anyway though. just dont beat yourself up if you have one or two sweeties or a piece of chocolate occasionally. you're only human - we all crave sugar sometimes! take each day as it comes :) good luck xxx

    solid advice chick. thanks a million i know what your saying is very true! i will try and keep this in mind. i suppose ive come so far and am down to the last one and a half/ two stone of 7 that i am scared of going backwards. xxx

    today has been a good day.

    had a glass of orange juice for bk 115

    wanted something hot so resisted the sausage rolls and jambon that were on offer today at work and had a cully and sully chicken hot pot (gluten free) for lunch 332

    snacks all day- 100g dried dates- 272

    dinner- family has steak baguettes and chips so i had a small bit of peppered onions and mushrooms with sauce was made with no milk. but my own dinner was 9 king prawns, my own portion stirfry including mushrooms, onions, peppers and courgettes in balsamic vinegar. and a bit of brocolli

    all in all reckon today was under the 1000 mark

    oh i definitely understand how you dont want to go back where you came from but I think if you get the balance right then its completely achievable to maintain and even lose some more. glad today has been a positive day for you :) lets wish for another one tomorrow!
    and wow - i didnt realise you had lost so much weight so far - well done...gues i should have lookd at your signature underneath though haha
