Scotsmist diary - from 1 jan 2010

Life is not a Rehersal!

Decided to keep a diary...didnt do this on LT last time, but I did on refeed and Maintenance and it does help to remember how you felt, etc..and I am sure it will help others as well who are thinking on embarking on LT.

Day 1 - 1st January

First day has gone incredibly well....it helped that I got up really late after all the celebrations last night.

I made my first shake of 16 icecubes crushed, around 450ml of water and the choc shake....luvly..Oh, I must admit I did enjoy it and have missed my choc shake!

Second shake was soup and for the first time I had it in a bowl, rather than a mug, which meant I could have around 500ml water....I boil kettle, then I have a RONDO which is like a chopper and fill that with 500ml water, pour in the soup, blitz for around 10-15 secs...and it is all smooth...then I pop it in the micro for around 20secs....I know others hate the soup but I must admit to liking it, but I think it is the fact it is well whisked and no lumps at all.
Lastly I had my choc one again, made exactly the same way as my first...

I have drank around 3ltrs of water, but didnt fancy any coffee or tea today.

I feel very motivated, and totally and utterly relieved to be back on LT. I am looking forward to my first WI and hoping to just get down to 11st something!!!

I am NOT craving any food at all, and yet made my husband a lovely Turkish meal tonight but it didnt bother me in the slightest that I wasnt eating.

I have had a headache all day today, but nothing that couldnt be ignored. I didnt take any medication, I just kept drinking water......

To bed and I feel so pleased that I got Day 1 over with, but I wasnt dreading it anyway!

Day 2

When I woke this morning I didnt have that feeling of dread that I have started feeling. The past few weeks the first thing I thought about was my weight and my body and how much I hated it. Today, I got up and just felt good that I was not feeling bloated and that I was doing something positive about my situation....And, the best thing is I know this will increase as the weeks go on!!

Have had my first shake and nearly a litre and a half of water today and it is just 2:30pm so I should be able to get around 4 litres in today no problem.

No headache today!! YIPPEEE.....

Rest of the day has been good...no major problems or cravings at all...only sign I have is that my breath is starting to get that metallic taste,,so maybe I am getting into ketosis sooner???? Can cope with this though.

First time I have felt hungry and it is past 11pm, so that isnt too bad really.

Day 2 down,,yippee!!

Day 3

Last night when I went to bed I had a bit of a panic attack and was struggling to breathe...not sure why and then my mind started to question why I was putting myself through this again! But, this morning, I was fine; I think I just got a bit scared.

Today has been great. Dont quite understand why I am not feeling hungry, dont have any headaches, or lightheadeness...all that I suffered with last time! I just feel as though I am getting on with it and needs must sort of attitude.

OH and I went for a walk today as well and I felt ok; a little cold, but it is white here from the snow, so it was to be expected.

Nothing to report; Just pleased that Day 3 is almost finished and I go back to work tomorrow and I find it so much easier when I am working anyway.

Not sure if in ketosis, but it will happen when it happens....the metalic breath hasnt been bad either today????? strange.

Anyway, here's to Day 4 and the count down for WI day on Thursday.

Hi Chelly

Thanks...I dont know cause I never knew when I was in ketosis the last time..to be honest, I never really worried about it as the diet will get me in to ketosis when it does and I just know if I stick to the rules I will be there! Whenever that is.....

My GP has increased my thyroid medication too, so maybe this will help!!!! haha....but, I am just loving LT...cant believe I am saying this. I am sure there will be hard times ahead, but I am so so excited and determined.

I am arranging up to 3 reunions, all over the same weekend around March I reckon and to be honest, this is really spurring me on because some of them I havent seen in 20 yrs and in those days I was around size 18/20 (but squeezing into 14s..haha)..most havent seen me at all with the weight I have already lost, so it really is giving me one BIG INCENTIVE!!! I want it to just speed along now!!

I am sure you will do well too....once you get started and you realise how happy you felt with the weight loss last time.

You have such a hard task with the deli, but you know you can do it!! I have changed my routine too....had my first shake after 1pm and then will have soup around 7pm and then shake around 10pm..as I find evening the worst and with not goin to the gym at the minute with hubby still a bit poorly!

At least you have done it and as each day passes it gets easier!

How do you last till 1pm for your first shake, i get a headache if i wait longer than 11am. I have 2nd at 2.30-3pm and last one anytime between 7-8pm depending on headache telling me not to wait any longer.

I did feel a little hungry today I must admit....I used to have my first at around 7:20am so it might take a bit of getting used to.

I suppose working helped as I had so much to do with today being my first day back.

I probably will keep doing that because once I start going to the gym after work I will have a shake right before the gym which is usually around 6pm, so it just helps.

I drink lots of water, so not sure if this helps, but wish I could answer the question...just seem to manage for some reason :)

hahahaha - talk about bacon butties! I was on the train this morning...and this guy was finishing off a bacon buttie or sausage buttie, wasnt sure what...oh, the smell!!!!
Then he finished it and I thought PHEW!...then,,,,NOW WAIT FOR IT.....he brought out another one that was in his pocket and it was steaming hot and this was a bacon buttie!! hahaha...AND I was sat right opposite him...oh, the smell!! And I dont even eat bacon, but it did smell nice......hahahahhhahaha

oh it's not fair is it? lol I had to cook my son a bacon sandwich yesterday, luckily he ate the lot quite quickly(for a 4yr old) and didn't leave any for me to drool over, that's my boy!

I have had to go in to chip shop for son and do him the bacon buttie in the last 2 days, it can't get any worse. The only thing that would drive me crazy now would be to have to watch someone eat chinese or a curry and that WILL NOT happen!

I know..it is the smells more than anything, but I know last time I loved smelling food and it was as though I had actually eaten it!! I think a lot have experienced the same thing!!

Day 4
Well almost done!!! YIPPEEEE......
I couldnt sleep at all last night...grrrrrr.....was still awake at 3pm and was suppose to be up at 6:30am!!! Never usually struggle with sleeping, hoping it was just because today was work day!!!!

Apart from feeling a little tired today, I have been fine.

I feel no bloated feeling whatsoever and even felt quite good wearing my black cords today...I tried these on last week and they were tight and I had a muffin top, but that wasnt the case today!

I was peeling an satsuma for my OH and nearly put a segment in my mouth, just out of habit, but luckily I didnt!

No headache; but breath is more metallicy today, other than that, all plain sailing.

I just feel that I want to crack this and is short a time as possible.

I also sent the application to the ED course today, so hopefully by this week I will know whether I have been accepted, which will be brill if so!

Bring on Day 5 and almost D Day!!!! Cant believe how fast it has gone.
