Well the diet started on Monday and so far we are still on track :)
A while back I said I had a fair bit of weight to loose but I hadn't expected it to be so much when I stepped on those scales Monday morning! Its a good job I didn't faint with shock because at this weight I doubt Matt would have been able to drag me to safety let alone pick me up!! ha!
I don't just have a few pounds here and there to loose, I am setting my sights on 5 stone....wow! A few years back I lost close to 3 stone so I know a little of what I am letting myself in for. Even losing 5 stone wouldn't be enough weight in the eyes of the NHS for me to be 'normal' but at only 5foot 1inch I am fighting a losing battle to ever be 'normal'. My perfect body will be a little slimmer, still curvy and of course still have chubby cheeks!
How do I plan to loose the weight? It may not work for most people but I have entered the world of 'very low calorie restricted dieting'. When I lost that extra 3 stone in 2009 I did it through the same method, I saw a surgeon and weight management professional hoping for a gastric band but now I look back and I am glad they said I wasn't ready. They did however show me an alternative route, I eat the same amount I would if I had a band/bypass but without the risks of surgery. You really have to mentally prepare yourself for this one, it is not easy but if you want results then this is a guaranteed plan!
Quick weight loss often results is quick weight gain, very true! That is exactly what happened last time, I admit I lost my first stone in 2 weeks! Then as soon as I fell off I went straight back into my old eating habits, this time I have a plan in place for when I loose the weight, people around me to help and guide me, I have educated myself on how weight loss works and why I gained the weight back.
I do have a couple of 'before' pictures but I am not sure I will post them just yet, maybe when a little slimmer I will feel more confident to show you a comparison. I will also be updating weekly to let you all know how much weight I have lost :D

I saw this picture and chuckled so I thought I would pop it here, I couldn't have 2 posts in a row with no pictures! Plus it reminds me of my friend Keri that you can usually find crying over how 'fat' she is whilst eating a cake to cheer herself up :) btw - if Keri is fat I must be the earth haha!
If anyone would like to know anymore information on low calorie dieting please send me a message or pop a note in the comments, I am happy to share my daily diet plan if you like or advice on how to curb cravings!
Hope all of you who are dieting/eating healthy are doing really well and looking forward to showing off those summers bodies!
