    Thought i would start my own diary as it seems to keep everyone on track!!;) I am starting Shake that weight today :)

    Been on a total 'eat what i want' this week, as knew i was starting! So feel terrible now, but wow am i ready for this! I actually had butterflies last night with excitement of losing weight and feeling normal!

    At my current weight I suffer alot with my back, in fact i feel old! really old! It all just seems such an effort. I dont go out, as i dont want to be starred at by people.

    I noticed people had been making some goals, so thought i would do the same! My first goal is 2 stone off!:rolleyes:

    I've had my first shake.......chocolate, wow they taste soooo nice! Off out today, so will buy some water bottles, aim to drink minimum of 2L per day this week, increasing it next week!

    Does it sound weird if i said Im nervous? I dont want to fail this! Im a 33 year old single parent, and i want a life, and losing weight is the only way i will have the confidence to go out there and have one, as sad as that may sound!]]

    So here we go then!

    Hi Beth26,
    I loved reading your entry, it sounds so familiar, almost as though I wrote it myself. I'm 32, married with no kids yet but feel the same as you. I'm on my 5th day of shake that weight and am nervous still but also very much excited to be 'normal' ! My starting weight is 18st8lbs and my first goal is to get into the 17s. Then my next, into the 16s. My husband and I are doing it together although he's got less to lose. I hope your first day goes well and I hope we can keep in touch to share our journey! All the best, Nix

    Just made my son a fresh low fat cottage pie.......could actually feel myself crunching down on the mince.......obviously i didnt, but cant believe im at that stage on day bloody one! Been drinking the water and going to have a chocolate shake now (yum). I am currently decorating my bed room, so thats keeping my hands and mind busy, and can feel myself making lists of things to do so i just stay busy! Plus thought i am also burning calories doing this! I go to rosemary conley during the week for the exercise side, and will weigh as well, but i made the decision to not tell anyone else i am doing this. Mainly due to the fact i cant be bothered with explaining and justifying myself! In fact its only anyone reading this that knows...so ..shhhhh! Hope everyones having a calorie burning day! Going to check if i am in ketosis every day till that stick is purple!

    Ahh I know, food is torture! Day one to feel that way is completely normal.. I remind myself that those thoughts and 'feelings' are all a mind game! It's the mind we have to control, not the tummy. Are you doing TFR or are you having a light meal in the evening? Keeping busy is a great idea, I'm trying to do the same. Can't wait for the day that I don't think about it 24hrs a day. I've not told anyone either, ha ha.. For the same reasons as you. But getting out of 'occasions' is hard because I have to make up an excuse. I just want to keep busy and hit this hard for the 10 weeks I'm aiming for! But the shakes taste yummo, so at least we have that! :)

    Yeah the occasions thing is a nightmare.....hmmm....alcohol not so bad as you can say ur on antibiotics or something, but the great thing about these are its all about the no carbs, so you could just have some lean meat and salad? I would say one meal wont hurt, buts its a slippery slide after that one meal isnt it! I am doing TFR, i thought hard about having one light meal, but thought for at least as long as i can last i will have just shakes and water! I did cambridge a few years ago, and found after a couple of weeks you get out of the whole 'FOOD' world and you are able to kind of retrain yourself. Its just one day at a time, small steps, we will get there! We cant keep feeling like this, we deserve to feel good about ourselves! I have a image in my head of what i want to look like, the way i want to feel when i put on clothes. At the moment i look terrible, over weight, unhealthy and feeling old, I want that feeling of trying something on and it fitting, getting to the lower size, seeing those numbers on the scales getting lower and lower. I compare the image of how i want to be with a the food i crave and think to myself, what do i want!? So far the slimmer me image is winning! Hope that doesnt sound daft lol Are you having a meal or TFR? May I ask if you have something happening in 10 weeks that your aiming for? xx

    Of course, only a Halloween party which I'm so excited for! ;) But mainly because I did lipotrim TFR just before I got married, lost an amazing 3 stone in 8 weeks which gave me so much confidence etc, but if I'd had carried on a little more I would have lost all the weight I wanted to and retrained myself how to eat. Instead I went back to normal habits and put on everything and more over the last couple of years. So my first aim is 10 weeks (to beat my last one) then I will reset myself a new one. I'm going on holiday over Xmas and I don't want my weight to hold me back from doing all the things I've always wanted to do. I also want a baby soon but I want to be healthy and fit to be able to enjoy my pregnancy. And like you said, to just be able to walk into any shop, find my size right there and it fits perfectly! I've not had that since I was in my teens! Nothing tastes as good as that will feel ! I'm having a meal in the evenings at the moment. I'm being really good though so far, just veg and meat or fish, tiny portion, no fat, no carbs. Only shakes and water the rest of the day. So far, it's going well, but if I'm not satisfied with the weight loss in my first week then I'll go TFR. I'm in the zone at the moment so nothing can break me :) Life is to be lived, and you're right, we deserve it! This plan is cool tho, the flexibility, the price and the flavours, all brilliant. Nothing can stop us... But us. So we just have to suck it up and keep going.. But we can do it together! :)

    It sounds like we are both very simular in how we are thinking! You are so pretty btw.....and love your hair colour! Im a blonde! Will get photo up when i can. Talking of photos, have you taken any photos for your before pics? I did some yesterday.....should keep me even more motivated! I think i looked slimmer when i was 9 months pregnant! lol Oh and are you checking if you're in ketosis? I checked twice yesterday, haha, obviously wasn't in the morning, but by the evening i was.....which i think is so quick because i weigh so bloody much! I am hoping to go away in October, only Portsmouth, but still wanna feel nice! Wondering what i could lose by then!? But then i get worried i might put pressure on myself by analyzing what i will weigh, and that i panic! lol Its all an addiction and mind game i suppose!

    You're so right about the flexibility and the shakes. I am so delighted i like them! I loved Cambridge diet shakes, but these are even better! I tried Exante, and didnt like those! erghhh!

    Gonna go have a shake now.....thinking chocolate this morning! Don't think i quite drank 2 L yesterday, so will try and up my water intake today! So tempted to step on the scales hehe!

    Ah thank you ! ;) that's a lovely thing to say :) you're totally right, it's so easy to become obsessed! But hopefully that'll just spur us on. What day is your 'weigh' day? I'm on Tuesdays. Soooo tempted to stand on the scales but I don't want anything to spoil things. If I do and am disappointed, then that will mess with my head, and if its good then it'll spoil it for me on weigh day.. So I'm not.

    By October you'll probably be 2st down if not a bit more. How exciting!! I've checked today if I'm in ketosis but stick is showing only mildly, which is probably expected due to the fact I'm having a light meal in the evening I'm guessing??

    What I have noticed is that bloated fat and full feeling i had is gone, which is fab. No lethargic feelings or sluggishness. Makes me realise how bad I was being before. Can't wait to shift some weight so I can start some exercise too. Have a treadmill that's gathering dust! Hope ur having a good day x

    Yeah I'm not major dark purple yet, but it's getting darker! Everything you are saying to me is just like I'm saying it! Love how we so similar on this journey! I run up the stairs at my parents house today.... Although I'm prob only a little lighter, I just think we are not stuffing carbs in our body, bread is the worse for me, makes me feel breathless! Glad u did ur photos, b great to compare yourself! I'm having little waves of wanting to eat but keeping strong and remembering the feeling of slipping on a pair of smaller jeans! I seem to leave on the loo at mo! I painted my ceilings in my bedroom last night, and I think because I was balancing on a ladder I must of been clenching my bum cheeks with tension cause they hurt today! Another positive I thought haha! That may of been TMI! Sorry! Haha

    Strawberry shake for lunch and water!

    Have u noticed everything on telly is about food? Enough turned the radio on to hear about food again! Bloody stuff is following me everywhere lol

    Xxx

    Day 2!!

    Loving the shakes so much and so pleased about that! Let's face it, if you gotta live on something, you have to like it!! I'm feeling so happy today, not only because I'm losing weight, but the fact I have taken control and doing something about my life!! I get excited with the future! I admire the girls who like being big, but I have always felt this wasn't me!! I feel healthy and happy, and I need to hold on to this to keep going on the journey, as 9 st 2lbs is a lot to lose!

    I've been reading everyone diaries today, all from different brands, and feel like we are all on the same journey, just different lengths f this part, but in all, we are all trying to lose and keep the weight off! A battle which is bloody hard!!

    I'm back at work tomorrow so will have to use my shaker beaker to Mix the drink!! Hope it mixes well!

    I did my before picture before I started the shakes, but just done an extra one of me in the bath (clothed!!!) as I only just fit in it at moment, so not very enjoyable! Ands it's a bit like a canal crossing, high one side and low the other!! Lol looking forward to a comfortable bath, and maybe one day sharing it with someone!! Oooo cheeky ?

    Why not Beth, that day will come! Well done you! I have to say, I completely agree with you on the excitement, I feel exactly the same. And I know what you mean about the bath too lol, that's me too! Here's to a thinner more comfortable and healthy happy life! Today has been challenging being a Sunday, but I've done it and am so pleased. I can't wait to weigh in on Tuesday. The shaker is ok, but because I use the blender at home with ice, the shaker doesn't compare. But lucky they taste as good as they do because it's still yum. Good luck for tomorrow, another day closer to the new you xx

    Oh and yes, there's seems to be nothing but goody program's on TV, although... This may sound weird but I actually enjoy watching them more than ever! For some odd reason, because I can't have it, I like watching it.. And it doesn't bother me in the slightest.. Well, not yet anyway! Xx

    Wow I can't believe I'm on day 3! I'm sooo chuffed! I have felt full up all the time and have been keeping myself busy. oh I just want it to stay like this!!! I feel better, I'm sleeping better, I have energy, and i have a smile on my face because I have taken control! I still can't watch food on telly or anywhere actually! I have such a fear i might want to eat it and it might weaken me! Gotta beat that fat little devil on my shoulder! I have so much to lose!

    Hey Beth :) How was your day? Mine was good, reacting for my shake delivery so instead of cheating and eating I bought myself a couple of slim fast shakes until I get my shake delivery tomorrow, but hopefully they're not too different. So looking forward to my weigh in tomorrow. Day 3 down for you already! Work days are easy I've realised, I'm too busy to think about work. x
