Losing the baby fat
#1
Am going to go buy some tomorrow so probably will start Wednesday... My aim is to lose 1stone 2lbs by Valentines day, ending at 16 stone... making a total loss of 1 1/2 stone.

My plan:
Breakfast: SF with half a banana in
Dinner: SF with half a banana in PLUS 300 cals snack
Tea: Either a 500 cal meal OR 2 x 250 cal smaller meals
My aim is to be around 1300 cals a day.

Hopefully, fingers crossed, this will get me well in to weight loss head mode and then I will be able to go forth and lose the rest.
It's rhat initial getting started that I find hard... I can do it once I start seeing real results.

Hey Stephanie, just to bulk them up and make them more filling, plus gets a portion of fruit in. I don't find slimfast do anything for my hunger without a banana in so I'm more satisfied this way :) Be nosy all you like lol xx

____________________________________
Have just had 2 choccy ones together with a full banana in and can say am feeling stuffed here... I think might be more cals than I think though as I use semi skimmed, not skimmed milk, but still... I think what I'm having will be fine.

So day one all done - beans and potato (300 cals) + steamed pasta and veg meal and a milky way (500 cals) + 2choccy shakes and a banana (can't be more than 1400 cals tops I'd say).

I'm being faced with some tempation here though, there is a pizza in the oven! I will definitly not be having any though, but the smell is zero calories!

32 days to go.....................

Hi you are doing Fab. I have just started my Slim Fast diary today. Liked the idea of putting a Banana in with it. I always put ice in and use an electric blender. Good Luck for Valentines day, mind does not look like you need it , you seem very focused. We must keep that way.

Thanks Stig, good luck with your diet. Try the banana it really makes a difference I find :) The ice would be nice come the summer, good idea. I also read someone puts a spoon of coffee in the vanilla ones.

Have had steamed fish and rice and peas and 3 sticks of kit kat for my 500 calories.
I went shopping earlier and I wa a bit shaky.. I don't know if it was because I was out on 300 calories OR if it had anything to do with the fact I was sneezing yesterday and had a runny nose, I was also very hot so I am wondering if I am coming down with something, either way I'm sticking with this but I might have to swap my 300 and 500 cals round.
My husband said I was looking a bit thinner - whether he was just saying it though I odn't know, but I have lost a good few inches so far, but really, it's like a pea on a drum lol.

Yet to have, 2 shakes and a banana.

...30 days to go!


Am feeling a bit hungry tonight. i would go to bed but I have got to finish the washing.
Have been working out where I have to be for my BMI to drop, and If I can possibly get to 16 stone by Valentines day then my BMI will be in the start of the 35's ... from the 38's that's a good drop, at least heading in the right direction!

Am having a chicken Korma and rice today for my 300 calories, my mouth is burning though!!

Still to have: 500 cals, 2 shakes and a banana.


Was thinking last night how I would love to be 13 stone by mid June. That would mean losing 4 1/2 stone in 6 months, I wonder if that is possible or too ambitious? It would mean I could wear my old jeans and be fit enough to enjoy my daughters birthday and have my photo taken with her.

Hi again

Do you know I think it is possible to loose that weight in 6 months. Have you got your jeans hung up in the bedroom so you can see them every day. I do this with special clothes I want to fit into. I am going to put the shorts up today so I can see them. Five years since I got into them but hey gal we can do it.
