Diet week 2

I weighed myself this week, and I had stayed the same:0( I know this is entirely my own fault, and not the fault of the diet I am following. I have been having more than my quota of skimmed milk for a start. I am allowed three quarters of a pint, and I love my milky coffee. I also have 150g pot of home made natural skimmed yoghurt as part of my milk allowance, but haven't been cutting my milk allowance down to half a pint! The other thing I have been doing is sucking on sugar free sweets, as my medication makes me very dry, but I didn't notice that they had fat in them, so that's another mistake.

I am going to show you what I ate last week, just this once, as I don't want to bore you. This was what my meals consisted of:
MONDAY

Breakfast

I had a slice of wholegrain bread, spread with brown sauce and topped by two turkey rashers, followed by half a grapefruit, but this could have been any piece of fruit really.
Lunch
Slice wholegrain toast, topped by two low fat sausages plus some baby plum tomatoes. (The diet called for a tin of tomatoes, but I don’t like them cooked). This was followed by an orange.
Dinner
Three low fat sausages, 175g new potatoes, plus unlimited other vegetables with low fat gravy. This was followed by one baked cooking apple and 150g low fat plain yoghurt.
Evening
Milky decaff frothy coffee and one piece of fruit.

TUESDAY

Breakfast
Slice of wholegrain bread, spread with brown sauce and topped by two turkey rashers. I also had some dry fried new potatoes left over from my portion last night. (Verified with Rosemary Conley site) This was followed by an orange.
Lunch
I
was out at a class so didn’t have anything, but I did have a grapefruit when I got back.
Dinner
Lentil and potato pie from the recipe book, with unlimited other vegetables, other than of course, potatoes. I also had one baked cooking apple with 150g low fat natural yoghurt.
Evening
Milky decaff frothy coffee and a piece of fruit.

The two weeks I have been on this diet are much stricter than the rest of the diet, so I will be introducing a much more varied menu. If I don't lose any more weight by next Monday, then I will stick to the kick start menus of the first two weeks. Sindie is doing much better than I am, but then she is half my age! My age counts against me when looking for big weight losses, as I can't excercise much, and it is harder to lose weight the older you are. As I am 65 now, that is counted as being old, even though I don't think it is!!

I will hopefully chart a weight loss next week:0)

Stick with it mum and I'm sure you'll see another weight loss next week!

I agree with Poo Sandie, stick with it. Much better to loose steadily if slowly than fast and put it all back.

Well, you eat more than me. I don't understand these diets, I have to admit.

I eat small bowl of rice crispies and half a glass of fresh fruit juice. Often don't eat a lunch. I have my dinner in the evening- no sweet, then a bowl of raw muesli later - no sugar. I admit to having a cake once or twice a week but that's it. Why am I not losing weight then?

I agree stick at it, if you really want to lose weight you will.
Good luck look forward to hearing how your weight lose goes.

I will definitely be sticking with it because I feel so much better for being on it! The thing is, I have been dieting for most of my adult life, and usually don't eat very much on my quest to lose weight. Apparently, that is the reason I wasn't losing it. My body was having too little food, and laid down fat cells becaue it thought it may be going into famine mode!! Once I started stuffing myself with all this food, the body felt happier and stopped laying thre fat cells down. I also think that the weight loss is being slowed down by the fact that I have never eaten cream, chocolate, biscuits etc., in abundance,because of my constant dieting, and if I had been eating those things, and suddenly gave them all up then there would be a reason for my weight to fall dramatically?

This is true Sandy at the gym we were told if you diet and don't eat enough your body stores it's fat as it does not know when it will get more so you dont loose weight. We were told to eat a breakfast, eat main meal at lunch and something lighter at dinner, it has worked for me I have not dieted but changed to these eating habits and since January have lost a stone.
