Shifting the excess

I expect i am like many women. Two small children, full-time work, no time to myself. Over the years i have halfheartedly tried different diets, and spent money too!! I am feeling the excess, i can't believe i have let it get this far. This is crunch time.

After reading the book i know i can do this and this will suit my lifestyle.

This is my journey - the highs and lows of shifting the massive amount of excess weight i make myself carry every day.

Second full week of 4:3

by croftmaclean on 31 May 2014, 05:10

So it is 3 weeks since i started this new WOL and my second week on 4:3 and i am already noticing the changes. Clothes are looser, not so tired, don't have to whip my bra off as soon as i come home. I am finding the fast days easy - just coffee in the morning, perhaps one coffee later on and water until dinner. Of course what is helping too is the weather has been great - everyone feels a little more fantastic when the sun shines! Happy with loosing another 2lb bringing my total to 8lb - now i need to try and get some more exercise in the routine.
Got in my first sea swim this week - sea was 10 degrees and it felt wonderful. Hoping to get another one in today. And this week I have averaged well over 10k steps a day - it was helped by being so busy at work with running the community shop.
Looking forward to the weekend and two free fast days - i can feel my stomach is small so i am not needing or wanting to eat so much. We are forecast good weather :)
Hope everyone else has a good weekend too :) :like:
