Pheonix's Diary

Just somewhere I can dump some info, thoughts and frustrations

feel free to ignore it, read it or comment :D

restarting today Jan 2nd after a December break and have gained 5lb over december , could have been much worse but i have been jumping on and off plan

Im now 17lb down on start weight , as Ive been on and off plan since August

But this is the home stretch and plan to lose about 35lbs between now and my Easter holiday April 7th

Im doing 4 packs a day , with veg , I use the meals and occasionally bars but not the shakes , they dont really do it for me , so selling them to fund my next order of meals , bit of a waste but i guess until you start you dont know what is going to work for you

i need to chew and feel like Ive actually had a meal , or at the very least a snack and all the shakes do is make me crave a proper meal

looking forward to adding the chilli to my next order , have enough packs for 7 days at the moment

So day one , ravishingly hungry since the minute I woke up , had a terrible night last night , with a friends 3 children sleeping over and taking it in turns to keep me awake , so feel awful , not the start i really wanted

luckily im not working today, im a childminder , first one comes back tomoro , next one wed, next one thurs and the last one friday , so im being well and truly eased back into work , my 5 year old starts back tomoro

wanted to get so much done today as ive been away alot over xmas and new year seeing family and friends , carpets need shampooing , wanted the clear the garage and put some stuff on ebay but have no energy today now , so ill have to distract myself in other ways , hence the diary :D

i know alot of you are starting today or in the next week , so good luck to everyone , i try to log on every day and give encouragement to others , also a good distraction and often a source of great inspiration and motivation too

Just ate first pack of the day , spag bol , at least the hunger has gone , for now :D

Thankyou Bea and good luck to you too

I do think you can feel better after just one day , actually will feel good to stop shovelling xmas junk food and leftover chocolate into me and watching the scales go down instead of up :)

Feeling great in 2012!
Good luck Phoenix. I should have about the same amount as you to lose when I start back and want to be done by Easter too :).

I'm hoping to lose the Xmas bloater feeling after a couple of days or so - I think the whole lot has gone on my stomach! :eek: I was needing to wear a belt with my work trousers before Xmas (size down still too tight round the arse! :)) but at this rate I'll be lucky to get them done up! :eek:

same amount to lose in the same amount of time eh ?

Interesting , I feel a little competition coming on lol

Mind you I know from experience you are way more disciplined than me so would no doubt thrash me ;)

most of my weight is on my stomach, its the thing i hate the most:cry:

But I'm a really slooow loser Phoenix so I'm not overly optimistic of beating you :). Also, I get a bit less disciplined as I start to get closer to goal (if last time is anything to go by) so not sure whether I will be quite as disciplined on the home straight. Still, as long as it comes off.

I hate my stomach, thighs, arse, boobs ...... Still, with 2.5 - 3 stone to go the horrible bits should be a bit less horrible by the end of it I hope.

Well done on completing day 1, better to have had another pack than raid the fridge!

Hope today is a good one for you!

1 extra pack is like 130 calories. Hardly enough to be worried about. Good luck today xx
