Hi all, I'm so happy today, I've been on the 17dd for 7 days now (a whole week) and have just weighed myself.
7 days ago when I started I was 126.3kgs, after this mornings weigh in 124 kgs. 2.3 kgs (5 pounds). My goal is to get to 85 kgs, 39 kgs (89 pounds) to go. I am so determined to do this & learn to keep it off.
Im not finding the diet too hard, as I noticed I'm not hungry as I normally would be, getting those 8 cups of water seem to be one thing that I've found difficult. Food I'm loving, fresh snapper, salmon, chicken breast are great, where I'm from Turkey isn't readily available, but in saying that my local butcher has turkey drumsticks, so I got a few of those last week. I was so amazed at how big they are, I was able to have 3 meals out of the 1 drumstick. I've also noticed because I'm not eating as much, what a huge savings on the food bill. I buy all my fresh veg and fruit for the week, I bag up stuff for my steamed veg or stir frys, bang it in the freezer for when I need, I do the same with my meat too. Break them down into meal portions.
One thing I must say I'm not enjoying and its the egg whites, I had scrambled 1 day, not great. I tried making an omelette one time, still not great. I don't mind boiled and take the yolk out, then add to a salad. But other than that, Im trying to adjust.
Anyway, I'm loving the journey and can't wait to be a fitter, sexier, healthier me.
Good luck to all, til my next blog.
Ps...there are some great recipe ideas on here too that I'm enjoying.
