Hi all I'm finding it extremely hard to find much support for anyone not doing SS/SS+/810. It's so quiet on this part of the board, so thought I'd start a new diary here, which is also a good way of me keeping a food diary each day. This may well bore you to tears, but looking through this board it has helped me find a few recipe ideas etc. So, I have been on 810 for 9 weeks, lost 2 stone, and now moved up to step 3 for the last two weeks because I just couldn't do it anymore. I needed to feel like a real person again, and wanted to start going to the gym seriously, and get a personal trainer etc. I can't tell you how much happier I have been in the last two weeks being able to eat real food! Still have 1 stone to lose, but I'm happy to do that more slowly, as I can get back in all my pre-pregnancy clothes, I just need to tone up all my tummy area which means being in the gym more (I hate exercise but I know that's the only way I maintain weight loss and can tone) So plan for today: Breakfast: CD porridge with skimmed milk 200 Snack: Banana 120 Lunch: Tetra + low fat yoghurt 240 Snack: Costa skinny latte 90 Dinner: CD recipe for pasta with broccoli and sun blushed tomatoes 345 Total - 995!
