Getting My Shake On!

So I got fat. As in… piled on the chub. I creeped from 163lb up to 188lb! Ouch!!

As soon as I ate anything that was it I couldn’t stop. It didn’t help that I’d got myself in to a crappy relationship with a jealous control freak… who wanted to feed me up  (to match him/ensure I wouldn’t wander). I got myself in to a terrible habit of 2 share chocolate bars a day, no real meals just nasty snacks 24/7. The sickness came back too… sorry guys.

So I have taken drastic action and cut out food fullstop to try and reset my body a touch. Don’t panic kids… I’m not starving, I’ve gone back to Exante.

Recap time – Exante, 3 meal packs a day and 2 litres of water. That’s it. Nothing else shall pass my lips!

Week One – July 13th – 188lb

I managed Monday through Friday 100%. On the Saturday I went on a work holiday with food included. Saturday and Sunday I had two packs and a small meal.

I lost about 10lb

Week 2 – 20th July

This was the holiday. Monday to Friday was either 1 pack 2 low calorie low carb meals or 2 packs and one meal. It was so tough turning down cream tea and all paid for meals out twice a day!! I snuck my scales in my suitcase and I lost about 2lb… which isn’t to be laughed at I guess.

Week 3 – 27th July

This has been such a tough week. I was 100% Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday I was back to work and it was a clients birthday – he saved me snacks and cake etc. Which I ate of course. Three days in a row I pigged out. Friday I used up two veggie pies and chips from my freezer and vowed to get back on it Saturday.

Saturday – deserved its own paragraph!

I had a shake at lunch, then got invited out to Cardiff for the day. Off we went to the most amazing Waffle & Sundae House… and I had….

…. a diet coke!

That’s right, Saturday was the 100% on plan. So far Sunday has been the same.

I’m now back to 176lb – 12lb down in almost three weeks (2 if you discount my work week!)

And long may it continue – 3 more weeks and I’m away and will eat anything I want. Until then, Exante all the way!


Waffle Menu!

See you Monday for official weigh in!!!

Back To The Grind – 3 Days To Go

Well as weeks off work go, this has not been as I had intended. In fact, on a non-food level it’s been pretty pants/awesome. I seem to work in extremes – more fun that way.

So the good stuff!

  • I lost a second 4lbs – 8lbs in two weeks
  • I attended Pilates – initially thought it was sucky, but I didn’t half ache the next day so going to rebook as must be good
  • I did another Bokwa class – I’m keeping up, doing pretty good if you ask me
  • I passed Probation at work – 32 long hard weeks of not knowing if they’ll keep me on are finally over!!

The not so good stuff!

  • My nan got ambulanced to hospital – nearly died/conflicting meds, she’s totally fine now but we did have Fish&Chips to cheer up
  • The Grandfather-In-Law passed away – It was coming, just not quite like that. And not while I was out celebrating my loss that night! Felt bad being happy, and not being able to do anything. Followed with a cheer up Chinese – oops.
  • Other surprise commitments – visiting family, last minute Uni Day, etc meant less gym classes than hoped and less house improvements.

Oh well, foodwise I am happy. Regardless of any ups or downs I have stuck to plan – I even weighed my Chippy chips AND synned my Chinese at the full amount!! The scales are looking good for Tuesday and I finally saw that elusive 183lbs for the first time in 18months!!!
