Shazza's Optifast Weight Loss Success Story

S: 103kg C: 81kg G: 72kg BMI: 30.7 Loss: 22kg(21.36%)
Hi all, I have been scouring this site for just over a year now and finally decided that I could do with a bit of help and encouragement on my journey :D. I started doing Optifast on Tuesday of this week which is a medically approved program that consists of 3 shakes/Bars/Soups/Deserts a day with 1 tsp of oil along with 2 cups of allowed vegetables and salad. Along with the obvious Minimum 2 ltrs of water per day. I had done it before in 2009 for a period of about 10 weeks and lost over 35lbs (16kgs!!) and that was only doing it 60% with a meal once a week - usually not all that small either :eek: Excercise is just walking at least 30 minutes a day.

Well, was going great guns up until last night......... and I may as well be honest because it would be only cheating myself if I wasn't....... I had my vegetables followed by 1 chicken satay, 1/2 packet of crisps, 1 med packet of crisps, 1 large banana muffin, 3 white choc tim tam biscuits, followed by another 2 bites of a muffin in the fridge................. I was not even hungry!!! I am so angry at myself and really need to address the underlying issues as too why I do this...... I know, I have several. :8855: Anyway am not going to beat myself up about this, as guilt never did any good to anyone, but all I can do is learn and move on, I have some things that IceMoose has said printed out and keep them close at hand for times that I may need some 'inspiration', and such journals as FF&F's and Blonde Logic have been real role models for me on this new journey and they have convinced me through their words, that if they can do this, then so can I :p. I am addiment that this will be my only slip up and I will be doing the rest 100%...... no cheats, no licks (for a lifetime on the hips :wave_cry:) as those that have done it so successfully seemed to never have faultered.

I am sick of being the fat mum, and I will take charge of my life once and for all. I think it was Jenni who said, 'the more she looses physically, the more she gains emotionally' - that really stuck and I hope to be, how shall I say, a very emotionally deep person soon.

I will report in here quite often as I feel that I need to be accountable on a daily basis. I will be weighing in each Tuesday so wish me luck and positive thoughts please.:)
