Into week 5 and still going strong

I can't believe that I am now into week 5 already!

Last week I had a week of adding a meal each night - this was harder than it seems - I found it quite difficult eating the four meal packs plus a 'meal' but of course managed it as its part of the regime. I have found that its an absolute must to drink the 2-3 litres of water as this really does seem to make the weight go faster.

So the all important news is that I am now 17lbs lighter - hooray for me :) I am now making myself not weigh myself too often as I was beginning to be o bit obsessed and doing it every morning.......

I wore a skirt yesterday that I bought last year - actually I ordered it and when it came it was too tight but I reallllllly liked it (!) so I kept it thinking 'I will get into that skirt" - crazy crazy woman - anyway it is now very comfortable; I need to keep wearing it otherwise it will be too big! I am writing this bog wearing a pink shirt I love and it's quite loose which is nice in this weather but, it's very low cut so it wouldn't be that great if I wore it out! Someone I hadn't seen for several weeks saw me today and said you could really see I have lost 'loads of weight" - I was really chuffed.

My next challenge will be on Saturday when I am going to a BBQ - I will be the sado with the shake - no only joking as I am so keen to keep on going - and I am feeling great - still no side effects.

New blog coming soon x

It's week 4 and I can have a meal a day - aaarh real food for a while :)

I am now at the start of week 4 and have lost 13lbs so far. I am so excited that I have had a great weight loss so am carrying on an looking forward to the next stone coming off!

It was a bit hard at the weekend as I went to my brother's and they all enjoyed a delicious chilli followed by a lovely French apple tart ad cream and lots of nice French bread and cheese while I had soups and shakes! However I made through and now it's week 4 and I can add a meal a day!

I can have 3oz of chicken, turkey, ham, tuna plus some other options and unlimited amounts from a list of vegetables, garlic, balsamic & tobasco! Tonight I had a huge slad of spinach, peppers, cucumber and mushrooms with two slices of ham - BLISS!

Looking forward to telling you I have lost more - I feel so much better, some of my clothes are looser and it's all great!

Third week!!!

Well I am in to week three now - and have lost 10lbs so far! I was a bit disappointed that I only lost three pounds last week, but am telling myself this is silly, as loosing 3lbs in the second week of a diet is still great and, if I can keep it at that rate I will get the losses I want by the time we go to Hydra in August!

The hardest time I have had was last Sunday afternoon, when we went to Alice's God daughter, Emilia's Christening as there was lots of lovely food and a fabulous ( as Alice and others told me) Christening cake - chocolate - which you know I adore - but I didn't succumb.

My clothes are much more comfortable and I am still really into the diet. A friend of mine is doing the lemon detox diet- which sounds much harder as you can only do it for a week at a time, as it comprises of a liquid made up of maple syrup, lemon juice and cayenne pepper ( you can have a small amount of fruit) - it sounds less sustainable than then one I am on.

I am off to my brothers next weekend which will be hard going especially as he likes a drink ( boo hoo!!) and doesn't have a microwave, so it will be only soup and milkshakes for two days.

Will keep you posted on my progress again soon - but so far so good - not fallen off the wagon at all.
