Well I've been going for 10 weeks now and I've lost a total of 16lbs. I'm so proud of myself for how well I've done. I feel so much better for losing the weight... my clothes are much looser and I've definitely got more energy (I've been having a massive spring clean/clear out!)
On the other hand I'm a tiny bit disappointed! I was aiming to lose 2lb a week so I should have lost 20lbs by now! I know 2lbs loss a week is a lot to ask for a 'sensible diet' like this one.

I seem to have lost my motivation and will-power a bit! I've struggled for the past couple of weeks and had more bad days than good. By a bad day I mean going over my calorie allowance by quite a lot. I think I'm disappointed with myself for not sticking to it 100% as I'm sure I would have lost the 20lb and maybe more if I had.
I just have to remind myself that I'm in it for the long run... this is not a quick fix diet, it's a new way of life for me. I definitely won't go back to my old eating habits! If I've had a bad day I just tell myself to draw a line under it and tomorrow is a new day and a new start.
But oh dear! Look what I've just eaten!!! Naughty Debra!
