    Hello. I ate a whole box of BBQ shapes last night. By myself. I woke up with a rotten stomach ache. My poor body doesn't deserve the abuse.

    So today I am doing better. I'm going to stop messing about and start looking after myself. Today.

    Breakfast: soy latte
    Lunch: super grain bread with tomato, cottage cheese & ham.

    starting weight today 74.1 kgs.
    short goal. 72. 5 kgs, ( that will be 10kgs from my starting point in Jan)
    end goal 60 kgs.
    move it, move it, marie

    Hi all - did my weigh in on Wednesday- 70.8kgs from 72kg last week.Yay! Getting closer to the 60's.

    Super Granny's post reminded me that I should do measurements as well as often I lose cm's not kg's - this can help with motivation if the kilos are slow to move.

    Have a great day!

    Sorry, just saw this now. Basically the first 3 days you eat 3 meals and 3 snacks. All have to be protein only for the first 3 days. Snacks and meals must be at least 1 hour apart but no more than 3 hours.

    After the first 3 days your body starts using up fat instead of carbs for energy. The following 3 days you eat minimal carbs (no breads, pasta, rice etc.) but other carbs are ok in small amounts. You still have 3 meals and 3 protein snacks. On the 7th day, you can eat whatever you want but the next day after your free day must be a protein only day.

    After the first week, you continue with 3 meals and 3 protein snacks with one free day a week and protein only day after your free day.

    There are 3 stages. It is really good and the only "diet" I've done where I don't feel hungry.

    My problem is not knowing what to eat or being motivated to do exercise, I know that but it's always a mental battle for me. Will power is not my strong point. I have lost 3-4kg in 3 days of protein.

    The only exercise they say is to do 30 minute walk everyday. Plus you're still allowed coffee, diet drinks etc on body trim.

    I have been so lately and stuffed up my last 2 weeks, but I'll join again and I think along with keeping up with the low carb, I might give this 5:2 a go. I'll make Monday my fast day.

    Just checking in. Lots of health stuff happening at the moment and I'm back in the city but I'm still chipping away. I weighed in this morning and am down 1kg from last week, I'm happy with that.

    Starting weight: 71kg
    Current weight: 70kg
    Goal Weight: 68kg

    Just for an idea of what I'm eating.
    Breakfast - two eggs scrambled with ham and cherry tomatoes.
    Morning tea - two vita wheats with cottage cheese and tuna.
    Lunch - minestrone soup.
    Afternoon tea - veggie sticks.
    Dinner - beef and veggie stew.

    Drinks through the day are water, tea, green tea, coffee and I have a coke zero too.

    Everything I've read about swimming has always said to be careful with your eating as swimming can make you ravenously hungry afterwards - so maybe make sure your still eating within your goals.

    A bit less than a kilo on average - My clothes feel looser for sure, and it's definitely doing something good as it's nearly fixed my (5cm) ab separation (down to <1 in 3 weeks!). Maybe I should start measuring myself - it's just that the numbers will make me feel like never leaving the house again =/ Doesn't help that DH is always teasing me about my current size (I have a 4mo ffs and have been pregnant / breastfeeding almost constantly now for 5 years!!). I doubt he could swim 2.5km in an hour either =P

    I'm not (I don't think) eating any more than I was, perhaps less even as I don't have time between getting home and having to run out of the door with one of the kids lol

    Thank you xox

    I would definitely do your measurements- I bet you've lost cm's!

    Interesting about swimming helping your muscle separation- I may have to give it a go!
