Paul McKenna Will make you thin
My mum bought me the Paul McKenna "I can make you thin" book & cd this week.. I thought "that'll be a load of crap but hey ho why not"..
I've been trying it for about a week now and it seems to be doing good things.. I am a lot happier in myself and I am not eating as much as I had been. For instance, last night when out with work we went to a japanese restaraunt which I love. I ate most of my starter, most of my main course and was just full (not painfully full, but the full where I would normally go, I can eat more) and I stopped. The desert menu came and I ordered nothing. I didn't even feel wistful when everyone elses deserts came. I was full enough and didn't need any more.
I know this may seem like an odd thing to be proud of. But I didn't need desert so therefor didn't want it. I am hoping this goes on..
I would recomend it to people who have tried other diety things and not have them work.. Current Mood: chipper

i have lost 2 1/2 pounds since joining weight watchers..
|Saturday, August 27th, 2005|
Lost a pound. Not really sure how as I have cheated on the diet most of the week, think a whole tub of Ben and Jerries Icecream, Pizza, Kebab, big drinking sessions and Crackers and Cream Cheese!
Ti great though, I am now 9st 6lbs! Only 6lb left to goal!!!

a pound! a singular flimmin pound! wtf? actually 1.5 lbs
so am 13-04-08. Pap. I only started at 13-6 i appear to be getting nowhere very slowly indeed.
Have decided I am saving my 20ps and ignoring the scales from now on! I blatantly feel quite a bit thinner...nowt drastic - i just wobble a bit less and my jeans aren't quite so snug on the old thighs :P
Have been pretty good on the diet this week...although drunkenness did see me ordering fat coke in chambers to put jack daniels in. hm.
This week is gonna be a baddun i think - tonight is the Masters Family Cantonese at the Paradise and i flat out reeeeefuse to diet for it, since a)its git expensive and its not like i go more than once a year or something and b) i doubt ANYTHING is atkins friendly and i flat out refuse to be the awkward bugger who asks for the 'sauce on the side' or whatever. Have banned daves mother and sister from talking about diets also. I know they will like coz they are strange.
Saying that its normally nasty weeks when i think 'fuck i really screwed up' that i end up losing more weight hahaha.
fingers crossed anyway!

Well, I stuck to the diet and did the exercise, but lost no weight, I am still 9stone 7lbs... However, I do feel smaller in size and I have noticed my muscles are more defined so I suppose I my have toned up and added muscle mass while loosing fat. I was told this may happen... The loose skin is no better, I was hoping it might have started to shrink back by now, but no dice. This might be because I am still loosing weight and size though???

WEIGH DAY AGAIN!
weightwise i am back up to where started at 13-6 :( humpfff
I reckon this is probably coz i'm about due on me rags and plus the woman at the gym said you should always weigh yourself before, not after exercise like i did coz you're all 'puffy' and plus theres the huge amounts of water you drink when working out too.
Anyway i'm not disheartened coz i feel skinnier and a bit more toned in myself and a couple of people have commented that i look like ive lost weight (without me poking them with sharp sticks!)so i reckon keep up the good work!
This will be my second week on Phase 2: Ongoing Weight Loss, which is quite frankly a pain in the arse due to having to measure things more accurately than on induction (where you simply know what you can and cant eat) to determine your carb tolerence...canny coz can eat nuts n berries and more veggies now like!
Just have to get into the habit of keeping track!
HAve been very good on diet all week apart from when mehboob made me eat a cornetto which i threw straight up again after but i reckon the damage was done :(

what's the scores george dawes?
Another pound off! yay!
Not great but hey at least the needle is moving in the right direction!
Have been really good on diet for 2 weeks, but body stuffed itself with 2 slices of congealed pizza on sunday morning before my brain and willpower had woken up! nothing sorts you out like congealed pizza!
Otherwise i think i've pretty much sussed it! I've been trying out some tasty things and i dont even get the urge to cheat - am just trying to hypnotise myself into thinking that sugar will kill me lol! Doing ok off the beer too - am loving bacardi at the moment!
This weeks goal is: lose more than a goddam pound! i.e. go to the gym at least 4 times! (hardly went last week due to feeling like poo)

Well it's official, i have put on two pounds. Not really a surprise seeing as I have been utterly crap at the diet all week, cake, biscuits and pizza figuring high on my consumed food list. But still depressing. will have to take this onboard and be very very good for the next week. Tis gonna be difficult as I am off to yorkshire today and butter and crusty bread await me, but I will have to be strong and make myself resist... Well, not resist but not go mad I think that's the key. Yesterday and Tuesday I just gave up on the diet and shoveled as much crap down my neck as I could as I figured I was not gonna lose weight anyway. I need to think I can have it but one or two, not six! Current Mood: sad

I am finding it really hard to stick to my perscribed diet plan.. I am attempting to eat healthily etc but what with work/after work stuff fitting the plan around my day is very difficult.. have any of ye any solutions/ideas on how to fix this? Current Mood: cranky

how much do i love...
proper cream sodas!!!
double cream (could use elmea or something for a low fat version)
diet lemonade (i used fruits of the forest fizzy water stuff)
just finished my 2nd one....better use that cream before it goes off ...
Purchased some tofu which is marninading in sesame oil and soy sauce as I speak...but erm...what do i DO with it? Just stir fry it with veg n stuff?
Anyone got any recipes?
Having a bit of a crappy week on the diet... totally broke it on sat and sun while in yorkshire, real butter and steaks, also chocolate flapjacks! Now trying to be good but weighed myself this morning and am back up to 9.9 stone... Just hoping I can get back to 9.7 stone before official weigh day on sat...
Been managing to get to Gym three times a week though so that could also not be helping as building muscle will put on weight...
So close to goal now I just want it to be over and done with so I can eat pizza! However I know it won't be over, I will always have to be careful not to let myself scoff too much bad stuff... And I do get to eat pizza now and again... I just wanna go out and buy nice clothes that will fit me for more than a few months... I am also getting sick of people gushing about how much weight I have lost, like I haven't noticed myself, finding it hard to look them in the eye and seem happy about it. Maybe that is ungrateful and mean of me... Also getting sick of people telling me I shouldn't loose any more / should loose more / should exercise more / should eat what I want coz I have lost loads anyway and shouldn't worry about the odd slice of toast etc! Fuck off and let me get on wi it yer cunts!
Ahhh.... Better now!

was doing sooooo well - staying under 20 carbs a day and eating pretty healthily with it and stayed on the bacardi and diet coke all last night until dave informed me when he was buying his rounds he just got NORMAL COKE.
back on the wagon tomorrow. trying not to lose the motivation i had yesterday and plus the whole gym thing should give me a much needed kick up the arse dammit GOT TO GET SKINNY NEED NICE CLOTHES. In the meantime my hangover has been nicely stifled with a sausage and chips special and full fat coke!
update tomorrow with all my measurements etc from the gym....ugh wonder what the damage is!

Let's talk about salad baby!
Since it's all nice and warm and no one wants to eat hot food - salad is the way forward! What is everyone's favourite salad recipe?
Personally i think you can't beat the humble Nicose (which i am incidentally currently munching on for lunch coz i couldn't wait coz i'm starrrvin today!)
lettuce/spring onions/peppers/whatever you normally put in a plain salad
sliced boiled eggs
new potatos (obviously i left these out)
and french dressing (mine was olive oil, salad herbs, balsamic vinegar and dijon mustard)
MMMMMMMMM mmmm mmm and more mmmm
I also fancy attempting the following that i had at Zizzi last time i was there...very nice but i don't have all the ingredients and will need to go shopping:Insalata Tricolore
Baby mozzarella, spinach, avocado, red onion, cherry tomatoes and a pesto dressing

back on the wagon!
and i mean it this time!
Gym induction on saturday and hopefully they will do weekly/fortnightly review things too so that will keep me motivated.
I'm trying to motivate myself by putting aside some money...say a fiver...for every lb i lose which in 3 and a half stone time should give me £250 ish (will try and get dave to give me some too) and then blow it all on a london shopping trip once i am a size 12 and can fit into pretty camden market things :D
if anything can help me stick to it, its the promise of DRESSES :p

Well, got to 9st 9lbs last sat, and undeservingly have managed to stay that weight this week. So time for a big push, I have been shite with the diet and exercise for the past couple of weeks so I am starting my exercise programme from today! If anyone wants to I will be belly dancing tommrrow night, Also I wanna get to the gym so if anyone wants a swim or gym session this week let me know and I will join you!
|Wednesday, June 29th, 2005|
I've been so SHITE i really have...i know the exams were an excuse but now am in kinda post exam binge which is even worse and there's always something around the corner which i can't stick to my diet through but hell...feel like i've put on all the weight i lost in the last few months (which was only 5lbs or so anyway but i was still happy about it)
THIS....MONDAY...gonna start again. I know am going to see NIN but am sure i can stick to atkinsy stuff since london has a lot more choice of places to eat n stuff...am not going to be an arse about it though and will go wherever the gang want. Even if i cheat a little i will just be extra good in the next few days to get myself back on track.
Anyone up for gym/swim on monday night? May swim on sunday but i def will be too busy dying in a pool of vom on saturday!!
Linder says she wants to be a size 12 by xmas after she's had the baby and i don't think thats too much of an unrealistic goal for me either. About 3.5 stone and 2 dress sizes in 5 months? i reckon its do-able.
Need to get weighed and find out what the damage is i suppose...and i wonder if you can get willpower on ebay?
|Monday, June 20th, 2005|
bur first day back on diet after a good month or so of naughtiness...think i have put on a few pounds coz clothes are a bit tighter but exams were so bleeding stressful it was inevitable!
Since i don't bring my car to work anymore i can't use the scales at the chemists becuase i cant get there so fuck knows what i weigh! THinking about investing in some electric scales for my bedroom.
Didn't have time to make any lunch this morning so i thought id get a kebab from the chippy but they didnt have any grrrr! so had a smokey sausage and a slice of quiche with the crust pulled off...still starvin :(
Will be up for the gym n stuff from wednesday - housework tonight and motley crue tomorrow :D

Considering i gruffed like a mad woman for the week I was at my parents and my birthday weekend, weigh in was a surprise this week. I have only put on one pound for a week and a half of gruffing... Being extra good this week so i can get that rouge pound off though as it has put me back to ten stone, I so liked being nine stone and some pounds! Current Mood: surprised
