I’m very excited. Start tomorrow..last of the family events here today. I’m forward planning and realistically only have 1 catered event in May to attend. And to be honest i will happily eat what ever carbs i want that day as its an Indian feast celebration.
This week has been a gentle introduction to the 800 diet. I have given up dilute squash cordial – which is huge for me as i raised i hadn’t drank plain water in years. So that’s me now drinking just water or tea / coffee with milk.
Ive also avoided bread apart from one breakfast before a 10k jog. I haven’t had any cereal and have monitored my fruit intake.
So I’m starting tomorrow and very excited.
I’m going to journal my food intake and my journey on here. .. all feedback gratefully recieved but please be nice. Otherwise i will cry.
Starting weight 13.8 or 192lb or 90kg if my maths is correct.
I’m 37 and female with polycystic ovaries BUT only borderline PCOS. I have fibroids as well. And anemia caused by my utterly ridiculously heavy periods. I had extremely heavy babies but thankfully no gest diabetes.
I liked being 12 stone but genuinely cant remember being lighter than that. And i was 12stone for like a month after being on weight watchers for 6 months.
So I’m taking this day by day. My husband works away and travels lots. I have to go easy on myself as i will just see it as failure and come off the diet completely if i go over 800 cals.
So I’m aiming for 800cals and going to have to gauge the carbs . I was going to try to do 20-30 and see how it went.
Thanks for all your help and feedback
