I'm not as good at posting as I'd hoped but actually in some ways this shows I'm getting used to the plan and it is becoming part of the daily life. I lost 2 pounds, then four pounds so six in the last couple of weeks and 17.5 in total, 3 more to go and I'll have lost just over a stone and a half! Am really pleased with that and determined this time. Got to keep going! Had a test yesterday when we went out with friends, managed to stick to sparkling water and a coffee though and very proud of myself however tempted I was! Going on holiday in two weeks and I can't wait! I have a work lunch on Friday but I've told them I'm doing the plan so they can eat around me. I have decided though that I won't stick 100% to the plan when away, I prefer to plan so at least then I won't beat myself up about it. This is a long term lifestyle change for me not just a quick fix and I have to make my own decisions about when is the right time to eat, or not. Life is for living, and I want to live it thinner, but if I have one week of salads/food, will try and stay away from carbs, then so be it. I will be straight back on the plan. Hoping to lose at least 3/4 pounds over the next week and same the week after.
