The biggest problem I find trying to lose weight is still having to cook for the kids :S
Had a piece of ham before cos I was feeling hungry. Going to eat protein for dinner.
so does optislim and optifast taste the same? are they the same consistency? i have tried optislim before but i forgot if it was watery or is it thick like optifast...
anyone know if optifast is on special anywhere?
Really dont know why I bother with this diet at all Just sat down and ate some Krakowurst and water crackers. Not going to lose weight this way
A random question for everyone, I've been reading your posts and getting motivated. I started on the shakes 2 days ago. Since then (TMI) I am gassy, and during the day can have the runs (no stomach cramps or anything involved).
I was wondering if this happens to other people or if I'm doing something wrong?
I'm taking optifast, and having veggies for dinner (from the list) and trying to drink my body weight in water.
Any ideas? Thanks
Best of luck
I was going to say increase your fibre too
I couldn't wait so i jumped on the scales this morning....1kg lost in 2 days!! Yay, considering I was already doing shakes and had been stuck for 2 weeks on the same weight...I am thrilled!! Yay for some support and getting serious about it.
I am now at pre pregnancy weight which is cool...but, the IVF weight must go.
I even got all motivated and unpacked my old clothes (i packed away when I was about 10 weeks preggy) and found a few cute outfits I can wear now...and very excitedly...all my old tops (I am very much a t shirt and jeans girl), I had forgot I had soooo many cute tshirts lol So, motivation is at an all time high!
I have my "dream outfit" laid out too that I should be able to wear in about 10 kg's time...it is still jeans and a t...but my Just Jeans Size 12 Jeans and my "digital angel" t shirt (yes, DH and I are both geeks lol) which I LOVE and also DH loved me in...might have to surprise him with it and wear it at easter (my goal).
Thanks again for everyone who is in this thread!! Inspiring, informative and supportive and friendly...is just what i need
I don't know if this has been mentioned in this thread yet but I would highly recommend the app 'my fitness pal'. It's a calorie and weight tracker and is super easy to use. If I ever feel like snacking on something between my shakes I put it into the all first to get an idea of how many calories it will be.
For example I was craving a Lindt chocolate ball.. Then I saw that one ball was about 80 calories and I put that shizz away O_O
