Wow I haven’t written on this blog in so so long so I definitely owe you lot an update!
I’m currently 10 stone 9.5lbs and the wedding is 4 weeks away today. I don’t think I’m going to manage to lose enough weight to be 9 stone 13lbs as I’m going to be honest with you I’ve hit a binging wall! Every time I don’t eat very much, I binge so much the next day and eat the calories I otherwise would have lost weight on. So unfair. It got so hard and I just felt like shit so then I concentrated on trying to just eat 1400 but I can only maintain on that amount, it is very hard to lose weight. I think that might be my basal metabolic rate, or around the 1500 mark so what is the point in me trying to lose weight on that? It would take months! No one can weight that long.
I’ve decided that eating 1200 calories is hell on earth, the majority of the time unless I feel ill or extremely bloated?
I don’t really have a recent picture of my body but maybe I’ll take one soon, there’s not much change- maybe a bit of weight loss off my stomach and my legs are more muscular because I’ve been walking so much! I have been walking 10,000-15,000 steps everyday.
Anyway, I will try and post more but I can’t promise it, my degree takes over my life and living with other people makes it harder to find time to be by myself.
I JUST HAD TO UPLOAD THIS. I cannot remember the last time I was this weight, it just has never happened. I have never seen this number on scales! I know I keep saying this but I truly mean it, it is amazing and I’m keeping on going!
This was some of my lunch, I had a huge bowl of this delicious frozen fruit from Tesco which is 90p for about 200 grams! I had 80g of it for only 72kcals and it takes me ages to eat and really fills me up- 10/10 I would recommend!
Here is a little tip I have for all you animal lovers out there to stop you from eating too much. Let your cat sit on you and you won’t be able to get up and go to the kitchen. Obviously you need to have a cat that likes to sit on your lap but it definitely works for me! I feel too guilty to get up when she’s comfortably sat on me.
I’d like to add as well that these flowery trousers I am wearing used to be too tight for me and I don’t know if you can see but they now fit me perfectly and may even be a bit loose! I love it.
Have a lovely day,

Good, happy with that!
Here is my update for 23/09/14. A pretty good day but then I drank alcohol. However, I was sick SO MUCH from the alcohol and so probably next to none of this is still in my body. I have realised that dieting and drinking alcohol just cannot go together and I’m as good as done with drinking. I don’t even like clubbing that much so I’m going to just find something else to do with my spare time- like a society or UNI WORK! I can’t believe I was sick and it was so much. It did kind of make me think ‘good’ though because it meant all the toxins and calories were no longer in my body.
This morning I noticed my flat mates looking at my stomach and I think I’ve definitely lost weight. They were looking at it with an almost concerned look on their face. I couldn’t be happier. I think the major factor that’s contributed to my weight loss is the swimming. I am currently 10st 10lb. I ALWAYS write 11 just in habit, how bad. I am no longer 11 and I never want to be again- wow that’s a pretty good feeling!
Anyway here is the update for 24/09/14:
Breakfast: Nectarine 70kcal.
Lunch: Cod fish fingers 150kcal, large carrot 54kcal, low fat houmous 90kcal, barbecue sauce 19kcal.
Dinner: Chilli con carne 150kcal, Brown rice 152kcal, barbecue sauce 21kcal.
Snacks: Bakewell tart 215kcal, Mango chunks 75kcal, club chocolate bar 118kcal. THEN 880kcal of white wine.
I swam 64 lengths in the mornng burning 402 calories and walked about 3 miles 182kcal.
So my overall intake for the day was 1992-584=1408kcal.
But, as I said, I was sick and I’m pretty sure all of my dinner and the wine came up. I feel so rough now though and am going back to bed.
