Hope You Are Sitting Down
I’m serious right this could actually make you fall over! It’s day 3 of the Exante diet total solution plan and I’ve only gone and ordered myself a bikini! Can you chuffing believe that? I think the last time I wore a bikini of any kind would have been pre-1993.
Now don’t get too excited because my version of a bikini might be completely different to yours. I’m not talking about bottoms the size of a teabag oh no no no… mine are more like the size of a very obese guinea pig but nevertheless a bikini it is. Now again don’t get too excited because I’m not going out in public in it but just in the garden to do a bit of sunbathing something else I’m not prone to doing.
As you can see it’s not too revealing but as I say I haven’t worn something like that for years. Oh, actually I tell a lie I wore a swimsuit in the fast fix clinic when I had to get into the Bod Pod to be assessed for my fat percentage. For those of you that don’t know I was assessed as being 51% fat so basically, I was a walking sausage!
New Found Confidence
It’s funny because the last time I was this size I would never have worn a bikini of any description because I thought I was so fat. But, I think because I’ve lost 37lbs and 58″ I’m feeling so good about myself and how I look now compared to back in January I don’t give a damn.
Get Out Of Your Comfort Zone
Well I got to thinking you see because I was looking at the weather app on my phone and it sounds like we are going to be getting several hot days the rest of the week (I’ll believe it when I see it) and I thought it would do me good to get some sun on my skin. Now I don’t have anything suitable to sunbathe in as it is not something I usually do. But, I thought why bloody not! I’ve worked my ass off this year and I got to thinking.. you know what I don’t care what anyone else thinks I’m going to get myself a bit of swimwear. Yes, I know its just for the garden but for me, this is such a huge big deal and I’m quite proud of myself for doing it.
I seem to make a habit of this of late, well I say of late I think I really mean the past five years. When something knocks me down I get back up but with knobsticks on! I either have a new radical haircut, tattoo, learn burlesque, so this years moment is a bikini. God knows what it will be if I lose another stone. Very possible a new tattoo or a synchronised swimming class.
This time last year I would be in jeans and a baggy top or leggings and a baggy top and to be honest, they just made me look even bigger but they were my security blanket. Some kind of protective wall you could hide behind. It is also funny because I wanted to lose weight to fit into a nice pair of size 12 jeans but now I’m shrinking I seem to be spending all my time in my gym clothes. But.. those jeans still very much remain my goal. I’d love to know what everyone else’s goals are and what is keeping you motivated. So please don’t be afraid to leave a comment below.
Day 3 Of The Exante Diet Total Solution Plan
So now you have got over the shock of me and how I’m going to be wearing my bikini this week I will get back to what I wanted to talk to you about and that is I have made it to day 3 of the Exante diet total solution plan and still be alive. In fact, I think I can hear a drum roll in the background somewhere in anticipation of today’s weight… it’s either that or my tinnitus has got louder! So with no further ado today I weighed in at 12st 12lb which is the same as yesterday and that is absolutely bloody fine. I had a horrible feeling I had dreamt of being 12st something so to see that 12 staring back at me this morning was a huge relief and still a fantastic feeling.
TOO MUCH INFORMATION ALERT (I need some Fibrogel) TOO MUCH INFORMATION ALERT
I’m still very much in shock that I have managed to stick to it for 2 days because as I said yesterday I thought 4 products a day was bad enough. On top of the 3 products, I have one tablespoon of C8 MCT oil in my coffee twice a day. I’m not suggesting that you use it I’m just saying that is what I have had as I want to be truthful at all times or what is the point.
You also have to remember that oil tends to have around 100 calories per tablespoon so I’ve had 200 calories of fat but a good fat. I’m fine with that as it has no carbs to it and it is a healthy oil. I personally do think it helps make me feel fuller and I think it helps with mental clarity. But that is just my personal opinion.
The way I ate the bars yesterday was slightly different. On the first day I split the 3 bars into 6 pieces, however, yesterday I split two bars into 3 pieces each and the last bar I split into 2. I think I might do it that way today.
Hot Stone Massage
Luckily for me, my daughter is studying to be a beauty therapist and this afternoon she needs my body to practice on for a hot stone massage at college. I have never had one before but I’m looking forward to it; I’ll let you know how it goes. Although she isn’t feeling well this morning so it might get postponed. Also if, and I mean if I feel brave enough this week I will take a photo of the bikini when it arrives not in the packet but on me.. Can’t believe I just said that what am I talking about I’ve twirled tassels on a stage it doesn’t get much braver than that; although if I did that now the tassels would probably just tickle my knees.
Thank you once again for all of your messages of support and your questions and I’m getting through them all I promise.
I would also like to thank the two very lovely ladies who have bought me a Ko-Fi on my blog this week -Thank You xxxx
