hey Amanda

I dont know what the answer is - the 'best' plan is SS, so its the only way to get close to it. good luck though.

hi hun, just be careful of working out too hard. i was doing the diet a couple of weeks ago ( ended up braking it, but back on track now) and i had been having good losses, so thought i would work out more. I already walk four miles a day (school run)= 500 cals, then gym cardio work out= 400 cals and then 30 min swim = around 350 cals, so was burning around 1250 cals, most days, i thought i must definatly loose weight when only eating less than 500 cals a day. I wasn't happy after all my efforts to find i had only dropped 4lb. My CDC siad that cos i was burning so many cals that my fat burning had slowed right down and that i either needed to eat a healthy low carb meal on my work out days or have another CD meal, or work out less. Good luck with whatever you deside hun, but hope this helps.
 

SO MUCH TO LOSE!

Must do it this time

Hey hun,

I did cd 2 years ago for the 1st time and worked out alot,5 days in the gym and 2 boxercise classes per week and this time round im not in the gym at all just walking 3 miles 4 times per wk and doing the wii fit and cardio workout and my losses are alot more this time round....go figure.
Hope you lose what you need to in time.

Thanks for all your replies!! Ive just got back from the gym...i do an hr n a half roughly of cardio work...was planning on going everyday this week but maybe thats not such a gd idea then lol!!

LeaPJ.....This is my first time at ascot too and im in the grandstand which is full of the posh lot lol!! Im kinda nervous but im sure itll be fun! I would of been on the ss for nearly 5 weeks by then but i admit im having that particular day off to drink...then straight back to stage 1 again on the saturday!! I know i shouldnt but im only 23 and i dont think i could stand being there without a drink in hand and let my hair down for once! Ive been so good so far ive had no slip ups whatsoever! Make sure u have a lovely day too hun :) x

I also have my weigh in tomorrow so ill be sure to let u know how close i am to losing that 11lbs lol...hopefully ive lost at least 4 this week and ill be happy :D x x x

Just be careful if you are in ketosis cos drinking too much can send you really loopy !! Don't want to be a kill joy but just wanted you to be aware ... Have a lovely time. Good luck with reaching your target. Sure you'll look fab whatever.

Had my weigh in last week and i lost 1 POUND!! i couldnt believe it ive worked so hard aswell but ah well i lost so much in the first three weeks i spose i cant be too greedy ay! Roll on this wednesday for crunch time :) I tried on my dress for ascot a size smaller than what i normally am and it fits perfect so despite a low loss i am over the moon about that woohoo!! x

Ack. Wish I'd seen this thread earlier.

You do need to be careful doing a lot of cardio on this diet. Strange things can happen on the scales ;)

Take it easy hun.

As for drinking, yep, you need more food. You need to take yourself out of ketosis (so add carbs), and don't want to drink on an empty stomach. You could ruin your day.

Have a fab time:clap: and remember that it's one day off. Don't let that roll into two. It's so easy. You have to be really focused to get back on it.

Very doable, but if you delay getting back on, you may find yourself really struggling. Just a warning.

Thanks KD...and yes strange things are happening because i dont seem to lose as much now as i did at first lol! I dont mind too much tho as ive lost inches and im getting fitter, makes me feel good too :)
Im going out again on the saturday but im all prepared with my three shakes a day to start again and im driving! My friends are going for a meal first and im skipping that bit! I have it all planned and im quite focused so fingers crossed!
Well done aswell on the 8 stone wow thats amazing and you are an inspiration! Im thinking about doing weightwatchers after ive reached my goal to maintain it? I hope its a good idea as i dont want to ruin all my hard work x x
