I was so pleased with myself for being 63.5kg. Now I feel fat and unhealthy again. I am still 63.5kg most days, sometimes 64, but I feel that I need to lose a bit of fat around my middle. I can't even begin to remember now how terrible I must have felt at 80kgs! Our bodies and minds are so strange!
Anyway.....last night (Monday) on "Today Tonight" they had a re-cap of the "Kick Start Diet". Although I didn't know it at the time, that is the 7 day diet which started my weight loss in 2004. I actually found it on another site
When I first started counting points I was really careful with the food that I ate and I made sure that I made the best of my points total for the day, mainly eating healthy foods. Now I am not counting points as such, I just make sure my food is low in saturated fat and not too high in kilojoules. But too much sugar and more salty foods are creeping in and I think this is adding to my feeling of not being as healthy as I was.
So.......today I am starting the 7 day Kick Start "diet" again. I just want to clear my body of the not so good foods and start again. I want to then concentrate on eating properly again and getting my energy back.
I know I am still at my goal weight, but I have lost that feeling of health and vitality and I am going to get it back!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. It is now Friday. Day 4. Today is bananas and milk day. I have stuck to the last three days well and feel fine. Scales are dropping slightly and I am not feeling as fat around the middle as I was. The only exercise I have done is walking and today I jogged on my mini tramp. I don't think I could exercise too much with the such a lack of carbohydrates in my diet. When I was up to day 4 last time (in 2004) I had lost 2kilos. This time it is much slower as I don't have a lot of fat to lose. I am not really missing bread, but I know that the first slice of toast that I have next Tuesday morning will be heavenly!
Another P.S. I am in no way recommending this "diet" to anyone. I know it worked for me, and it was my own personal choice to try it, but everyone is different and I am sure some health complications may prevent this from being a wise choice for some people. As "they" say, always check with your Doctor first.
