    Hello all!

    My name is Kylie and I'm a food-aholic! Did exante about 4 years ago and found this site so helpful at keeping me motivated so I'm back again! Didn't do a diary last time and only managed about 6 weeks so I'm hoping this time if I keep a diary going it will keep me motivated to succeed! Last time round I only had a few stone to lose... This time is a different story lol! Weight this morning and was 15.4 :-( wasn't a huge surprise but I can't believe that I've done this once before and let it all (plus a whole lot more!) creep back on!! This time round the things I will b doing differently to keep me on track short and long term are 1) keep a diary 2) acknowledge that this is a long term diet - it'll be at least Christmas before I'm at goal realistically (holidays, weddings etc meaning I won't be able to be 100% ts during those times) 3) plan for an exit strategy lol! I'm going to get down to about 10.5 using ts then hopefully lose another stone by going onto maybe something like 5:2 or slimming world... And will monitor my weight every week and make adjustments where necessary - I'm a classic oh well I've had a bad meal / day / week / month so it doesn't really matter lol! Then a year later I'm like "where did all this weight come from!!"

    So today, day one, how exciting! I have a headache and I'm hungry... Which is clearly all psychological as I usually don't eat until 1pm anyway and tend to have a bowl of cereal!! I'd forgotten just how nasty the bars are... Just had a double chocolate bar for lunch, am about a litre of water down, then will have a shake when I get in from work and a hot meal at dinner time with dh. So pleased there are more options now from exante - and hot meals too - I'm really hoping I like those more than the bars!

    Anyway, end of rambling for me now, looking forward to catching up on everyone else's diaries to keep me motivated ?

    So day 6 for me! Not had too bad a ride so far, last night was a bit different, Friday night would have usually been my reach for a glass of wine after a long week at work night, but I saved a chocolate shake instead lol!

    Hunger all gone now and I'm feeling really positive today, just had a BBQ next week cancelled so that's handy as I don't have to make excuses as to why I'm not eating / drinking. So I think I'm all clear until about the 12th July when we have a wedding and then a christening the next day.

    I do have weird "ooh I really fancy so and so" food thoughts, but when I sit and think about it I'm not hungry at all and then the craving goes away... This is a weird revaluation and one I'll keep in mind when I reach near where I want to be. Also think I'm going to keep a list of things which I fancy whilst doing this, I got the idea from another diary and think it will be good to look at at the end and see if I actually still want any of it.

    I've sort of decided in my mind I'm going to be on ts until early December time.

    Have spent a lot of time over the last week reading other peoples diaries and they have really inspired me to stay on track - it's so achievable!

    I'm a daily weigher, it's spurred me on this week, last Saturday I was 15st 7lb, and I'm now at 14st 10 which has massively motivated me! Official weigh in for week 1 is Monday morning, and then I think I may try to leave it a full week to see how it's going... I know the losses slow down from here!

    First mini goal is to get below 200lb which should happen in the next couple of weeks - yay!!

    Anyway, enough of my ramblings, I think I'm trying to put off the housework lol!!

    Ahhh thanks both :) don't think I've kept myself busy enough today as sneaky food thoughts keep popping up! Just having a browse through diaries whilst waiting for hubby to get home then going to take our baby (dog that is, maud, but don't tell her she's a dog, I think she actually does think she's my baby!) for a lovely long walk, hopefully the weather holds off, where has the lovely weekend we were forecast gone?

    Also keep thinking today I wish I'd started this is the new year, then is be nearly at goal now, but know that type of thinking isn't helpful, at least I have started!

    I've been reading both of your diaries on and off for the last week, both amazing! It's so funny, some of the things could have come directly from me too! I guess we all have the same struggles and thought processes! They have helped keep me right on track this week though so thank you!

Feet ache now lol, so DVD then off to bed for us, we'll sleep well, poor maud isn't even following me around the kitchen, she's flat out next to rob on the sofa! Looking forward to catching up on everyone's diaries tomorrow :) very good day indeed :)

    Omg! Had a dream last night I'd eaten a Big Mac and chips... Was so disappointed in myself, I can't even remember the last time I've had a Big Mac lol!! Was soooo chuffed with myself though when I realised it was a dream! Phew! ?

    STS this morning - even after all the walking last night - I think my body thinks I actually did eat the Big Mac lol!! I think it's time for weekly weigh ins after tomorrow's official week 1 weigh! 1st mini goal is to be under 200lb - should be 2 weeks - I also think that's the lowest I will have weighed for the last couple of years, whoop whoop!!

    Hope you got over your wobble. I had one last weekend and ended up eating a couple of salads. Not the end of the world so refused to stress about it.

    bob123 Well-Known Member

    Lol, well done cate, salads a good choice, I wobbled into a pack of ham whilst I was making hubbies sarnies for tomorrow! Could have been worse - a lot worse - said dear hubby was literally wafting chocolate chip cookies under my nose earlier - he's lucky he kept his hand lol! But I resisted after giving myself a talking to after ham-gate! Can't wait for week 1 weigh in tomorrow, then it's definitely onto weekly weighing for me... As others have said, I can quite easily talk myself into a reward or consolation depending on the numbers! Night all keep up the good work :)

    Oh, I'm always wobbling into packs of ham and slices of cheese. They are my go to cheats. Still, keeps me on the straight and narrow more or less!

    STS this morning... So 206lb, 14st10lb, 8lb off from last Monday and 11lb off in 9 days from my weigh on the Saturday. I know 8lb is a good loss, but I was kind of hoping for more as I have a lot to lose and others have had great week 1 losses.

    Oh well, onwards for another week, think I may do a bit of a countdown til my weekend off in July for a wedding and christening, may keep me sane!

    Also, if I'm tempted to weigh before next weekend please remind me to back away from the scales!!

    Had a couple of nightmares last night, I seen to remember last time I did this that I had them too :-(

    Oh well off to work in a bit for me, at least the week is more structured so I have less time to tease myself with food thoughts!

    Good luck everybody! :)

    That's a good loss Kylie so well done :D. Also a big thumbs up for resisting temptation & settling for a piece of ham which won't have done you any harm.

    Unusual food dreams come part & parcel for some of us it seems :eek:.

    Stay strong today cos I often find the 1st day of the second week can be when mind games start to appear regarding eating. Have a good day xx

    Thanks Susie - I think mine must have come early as it was definitely the trickiest night so far last night - if hubby had put 1 more biscuit under my nose I swear you would have seen a report on the 10 o'clock news - crazed dieting woman murders husband over a chocolate chip cookie!!

    Oooh meant to say, whilst brushing my hair this morning detected much less wobble in my arms! Lol, I hate my arms and that deffo cheered me up!

    Had half a shake when I got in from work, did some chores, now about to cook the hubby his dinner and some culinary delight (if only) for me!

    Very good day all in all, who knew work being so busy was such a blessing! X

    Well done on the 8lbs loss. I 'only' lost 8lbs in my first week too which I was a bit gutted about because when I did Lipotrim in 2011 I lost 12lbs in my first week and 7lbs in week 2. Only did 2lbs in week two this time round. It's definitely been slower this time. But keep in mind that 8lbs really is a good loss and don't be too disappointed.

    Thanks cate, I know I shouldn't be moaning about 8lb really!! Well I was naught this morning and did jump on the scales coz this STS nonsense was really bugging me, but the good news is I've shifted 1lb so hopefully they're back on the move again now! Will definitely maybe possibly try very hard now not to weigh til next Monday!

    Fab day today, long may it continue ?

    Ooh, something I've been meaning to ask... Is it possible to drink too much water? I think I'm getting through 5-6 litres a day... Is there such a thing as too much? Not having any other fluids though, tea or coffee etc.

    You can drink too much water so try to limit it to 4 litres. Thats plenty to flush the fat cells away ? x
  20. bob123

    bob123 Well-Known Member

    Thanks Susie, I wasn't sure but thought there would be an upper limit as it always says 2-4 litres, not 2 litres plus! Trying to reign it in a bit today, but am 2 litres down already...

    Day 10 going well, I've just been so happy and upbeat the last fee days, bags of energy, once been getting up at 6am which is completely unheard of for me! I'm almost disappointed that at some point I'll have to eat real food again and won't feel this good... Ketosis is amazing!! Maybe low carb-ing is the way forward post exante, but it still won't feel this good will it?

    Anyway, that's depressing me slightly lol, so will just keep thinking day by day and at the minute that feels awesome!!

    Hope everyone else is having good days too, just off to catch up on some diaries now ?
