Day 6, 7 and Weigh In

Well Day 6 was nothing extraordinary, oh I did almot faint! Had a hot bath and when I got out felt really ill ... couldn't decide if I was going to throw up or faint first - made it to my bed and lied down for a while - really helped.

Day 7 was okay - still feeling quite hungry ... but it was also WEIGH DAY ... and I lost 12lbs woohoo, funnily enough hubby lost exactly the same - so we're both really happy.

Bought some boullion mix which was lovely, hopefully that'll help with the hunger! Also bought some water flavouring - which I'll try tomorrow now - too full after the Boullion and shake!

Bring on next week! :)

Day 5

Well the first weekend of the diet - it was a mixed day really - no sickness or headaches - but still quite a bit of hunger.

I think the realism of not being able to 'eat' for months is setting in, and I was so close to quitting :( But I made a list of all the reasons I started this diet in the first place which really helped.

Plus - I've made it through the worst days - it can only get easier from now on!

So - didn't cheat and made it through.

Day 4

A MUCH better day today. I took the day off work today because I couldn't bear another day at work feeling icky.

Woke up feeling okay had some water and then put my Choc Tetra in the blender with lots of ice and some water and wizzed it up - the result was a McDonalds milkshake - mmmmmmmm - didn't feel sick after it at all :) and it was really filling.

Felt hungry at lunch, but managed to wait until 1.20 until having a soup ... really going off the soups already, will stick to shakes next week I think.

Lazed about the house all day watching chick flicks - was great lol

Hubby was quit hungry but not as hungry as yesterday - so hopefully it will get easier from here on out!

Starberry shake whizzed up in the blender for dinner was lovely too :)

Can't wait for weigh in - the scales were down again today!

Bring it on!

Day 3

Well today was a really hard day! I had my tetra for breakfast and then felt sick :( emailed my councillor and she suggested that I have a break of about 30 mins after my water before having my Shake as my stomach might be over stretched.

Tried that and still felt ill, but it didn't last as long ... don't know if that's because of the new way of eating them, or just that my body is getting used to them!

Later on felt really hungry, but came home and had my Soup, and felt okay. Went to the Pub for the weekly quiz and both me and hubby stuck to water, I could have died for a Diet Coke :(

By the end of the quiz I was as hungry as I ever have been .. it was actually painful - decided to only do this diet for 3 months and then switch to Weight Watchers.

Went to bed starving, but at least this diet is not giving me insomnia, if anything I'm more tired.

Oh well - on to Day 4

Day 2

Today has been tough ... I expected it to be tough, but I secretly hoped I'd be different and would sail through lol

I had a headache when I woke up, which was okay - I can put up with headaches! Got to work and started my Tetra and water. Then felt really sick, but managed to force the rest of my Choc Tetra down and a litre of water along with 2 Nurofen.

About an hour or so later I felt fine, actually I felt good! By the time Lunch time came I was actually looking forward to my Tetra ... then 10 mins after I finish it I felt really sick again. Apparently it's quite common to feel sick straight off, there are so many nutrients and vitamins in the shakes that my body isn't used to - that it can make you feel sick. So tomorrow I will drink them a lot slower and hopefully I'll be okay.

I weighed myself this morning and was down 3lb! But I'm not getting too excited because my scales are tempremental things!

Anyway, hubby has gone to the pub so I'm going to watch crappy tv and look forward to my Chicken and Mushroom Soup.

Hoping Day 3 will be better!!!

Day 1

Well woke up excited this morning although a bit tired, didn't sleep too well.

Got to work and had 1.5 litres of water before 10.00! Had my first meal at 0930 - a Chocolate bliss Tetra Shake ... and it was lovely!! Really rich though, it lasted me about an hour.

Drinking water is the key - I hardly felt hungry at all this morning, and believe me I can feel hungry after a huge Sausage Baguette and a bottle of diet coke! I managed to wait to about 1.15 for my 2nd Tetra, which considering I was planning on having it at 1230 isn't too bad :)

My head feels kind of tight and I'm a bit lightheaded, but it's nothing too bad.

This evening I had Vegetable soup, which wasn't bad - not amazing, but definatly worth having again, maybe with a little more water as it was a touch powdery - but I'm just really happy I actually liked it, as I'm not really a soup person.

I feel really positive about this diet, I know it's only the first day, and I expect tomorrow to be really hard, but at the end of the day it's just food!

Feeling sleepy, probably due to the lack of sleep last night and the diet, so will sign off now and watch some TV before bed.

Yay me!!

Worries creeping in


Seeing my CDC at 2000 tonight ... am getting really scared that I won't be able to do this now. I've put so much hopes into this being the diet for me. I guess it's normal to be nervous, and I know I have to stick to it ... but still I'm getting really worried

This diet for me is going to be the answer to everything - so I have to make it work!! I have a LONG way to go and that is making my mind boggle too.

I know all the answers to my worries - one day at a time, break my weight down into mini goals, but at the end of the day I know I want to lose 9 stone ARGHHHH I'm driving myself mad lol
