Hi everyone, nice to see you call.
I just graduated from Round 1 and am ready for Round 2:
My weight in Feb: 69.5kg
My weight 6 weeks ago before Round 1: 65.5kg
My weight now: 59.4kg
Goal weight: 57.5kg (although I think I was about 56.5 when I got married so we'll see- I haven't been that weight for so long I have forgotten what it feels like).
I love cooking on weekends, so I made up lots of meals in bulk on the weekend: green chicken curries with zuchini and bamboo, red chicken curries with zuchini and spring onions, beef curry in the slow cooker, lentils (hmmmm... lots of curries this week). I plan to enjoy them at dinner time with my DH- I'll skip on the rice or noodles for now, but always have mini papadums and yoghurt and coriander.
I need to make a batch of green soup to eat for lunches.
Brekky for me is usually a couple of coffees and yoghurt with LSA or fibre on top.
My exercise today was walking around IKEA.
Good luck everyone!

Start weight: 82kg
Ultimate goal weight: 60-65kg
Goal weight for this challenge: 77kg
My aim is to implement healthy eating strategies and to motivate myself to do some exercise.
At this stage I have started having wraps for lunch and fruit and parking at but further away from work and walking the rest of the way.

Well first day has started well as they usually do, let's hope I can keep it up. I did 50 mins of cardio this morning and I have actually decided to give intermittent fasting a go (the 5:2 plan). So today is a 'fast' day where I eat 500 cals. Basically 5 days a week you eat normally, and 2 days a week you restrict calories to 500. I'll give it a go at least.

Colbie I have thought about doing that eating plan, will be really interested to see how you go, good luck.
I have started day 1 of the 6 week challenge by walking to the gym, doing an hour of cardio and weights and then walking home. It's about a 20 minute walk, pushing two kids in a pram so it should help with the calorie burning.
I am eating very low carb and have so far stuck to it on day 1.
Off to the dentist this afternoon, yuk

Okay here goes,
Overall goal: lose 10kg
6 week challenge goal: lose 3-4kg
Aim: to be back to pre-baby weight by the end of the 6 weeks. I still have another 7kg after that to be in the middle of my healthy bmi and back to what I was 3 years ago.
Plan: walk every day for 30 minutes building up to hour walks again over the 6 weeks Eat more fruit and veg, reduce sugar and try to get back to cleaner eating.

So I got through the first fast day and have just finished my allowed calories by demolishing a Thai green curry made with light coconut milk, green curry paste and LOADS of veggies. It was so good.
The good thing about this plan is knowing I can eat normally tomorrow so it's not too hard (so far!). Looking forward to my porridge in the morning
Hope everyone else is going well!

Can you give me an example of what you can eat? Breakfasts, lunches etc.. and when you say that you can eat normally tomorrow, is it still supposed to be healthy?

Colbie how many calories are you allowed on a normal day?
I eat rather low calorie anyway but the 5:2 plan sounds good. I pretty much eat the same thing everyday
Breakfast - small bowl of porridge with skim milk.
Lunch - 3 cruskits with avocado and tomato and lots of pepper! This is one of my fave foods so doesn't feel like a diet!
Dinner - 1 scrambled egg with baked beans and tomato.
Snacks are fruit or carrot sticks, sometimes a boiled egg.
I bought myself a special treat for dessert tonight, it was a small chocolate thing and I did a quick glance at the calories and thought yep that sounds good! Got home and read it properly and this small little chocolate was actually 5 servings! It was tiny! So I ate half of it with some strawberries and put the rest away. Before this diet I would eat a whole block in one go so it felt weird that this chocolate was so many servings!
