Woohoo I Did It!
Here we go day 2 of Exante Total Solution Plan and I survived day 1. Now yesterday I had decided that enough was enough and this was because I have been 13st exactly for a couple of weeks now and 13st something for a couple of months. I made the decision that I would opt to do Total Solution for one week (the last of the 4 before my birthday). I was getting fed up of being 13st something as it feels like I’ve been like that forever.
Give Yourself A Break
We are really bad actually at beating ourselves up. I have lost 35lbs and 58inches and it’s still not good enough. Stop right there Wardy and just read that again! 35lbs not 3 or 5 but 35lbs! And how many inches? 58 of the bloody things. Ok… I get the picture I’m stopping whining about it I’m a superhero I bloody well am; got the cape and everything. How much do I talk to myself? Does Gucci do a straightjacket? Or maybe a pink one?
Back In The Day
Anyway yes, I have done amazing and I will tell you why. I have been on a diet for most of my life. The first time I ever went on a diet was after the birth of my first son about 200 years ago. You know back in the Flinstones time – yabba dabba do and all that. Now back then I just counted calories did some workouts at home; if I remember rightly Beverley Callard exercise videos. I had a leotard and everything. So glad we didn’t do selfies back then.
However, as I think a lot of women will understand it gets harder and harder following each baby unless you are Victoria Beckham who somehow seems to spring back to a size zero; seriously don’t know how she does it. So basically since 1993, I’ve been dieting. I think I have tried every diet going, Rosemary Connolly, Weight Watchers, Slimming Word you name it I’ve done it. I won’t lie I lost weight with them but only about a stone then it would all go back on. I was just in some vicious cycle and spent most of the time angry, fed up and depressed. I just couldn’t do it and stick to it. I just carried on putting more and more weight on.
The Day I Took My Control Back Over What Went In My Mouth
Back in January, the first day at the clinic I was absolutely distraught when I saw myself in the first group photo. I was mortified and won’t lie I went to my room and cried. But the good thing was I knew I was there to change that and I did. I hope that a lot of you can relate to my story and from the feedback I have been getting you can and do. I think we all need to have that moment in time where something just clicks inside and you say to yourself enough is enough. That was my moment.
Anyway, I’m digressing here I was supposed to be talking about my first day on The Total Solution Plan. I think what I was supposed to be saying before was I have become so used to having the 4 Exante diet meal replacement shakes and meals a day that the thought of 3 just filled me with dread. Well, I did it yesterday for the first time and it was no way near enough as bad as I thought it would be. Which goes to prove what I said yesterday about the thought of something always tends to be worse than the actual thing.
My original plan was to have two bars chopped up into 6 pieces to have throughout the day and have a bar or a shake at night time. It turned out I had 3 bars instead all chopped into 3 pieces. And guess what I am still here! I didn’t pass out and I didn’t die and I actually slept well.
Now I know some people say just weigh yourself once a week. However, I know a lot of people don’t. I also know that weight fluctuates every day for some people more than others. So for this week, I think I will weigh myself every day and report back my findings.
Day 2 Of Exante Total Solution Plan
Now as I said at the start I have been 13st something since March/April so it feels like quite a while. Yesterday on day 1 I weighed myself and I was 13st exactly. This morning I weighed myself and I was 12st 12lbs! I had tears in my eyes, punched the air and let out a woo hoo. I know, I know it has only been one day but seeing the number 12 made me ecstatic in fact, I did a mini burlesque routine power strut around the bedroom, sidestepping all the clothes on the floor and magazines and books.
This for me has given me a huge boost. Did I say huge? I meant a fuck off MASSIVE boost. Sorry for swearing but I do have a bit of a potty mouth when I get excited. So I am all set today to knuckle down and will do exactly the same as I did yesterday and that is 3 bars cut up into 3 pieces. I would just like to point out at this point I still putting 1tbsp of MCT oil in my first coffee.
So anyone out there wants to join me for a week of Exante Total Solution Plan please do. I am even thinking ahead now about doing 3 weeks healthy and one week Total Solution but only when I get to goal.
Remember to keep an eye on your BMI because you can not do Total Solution if your BMI is under 30. I checked my BMI today online and I am now 31.88 so still classed as obese. That amazes me if I am honest because when I look in the mirror now I think I’m not that bad but I’m still classed as obese. so basically it says I have to be 10 st to be classed as a healthy weight which means I need to lose another 2 st. Wowzer well I don’t know if I want to go that mad but I’ll keep chipping away at it and see how I feel along the journey. If you want to check your BMI please click here.
