On Day 5 Phase One India & Neris Idiot Proof Diet... Anyone doing the same diet???
My name is Jules and I started my diet on 6 August weighing 252lb... the heaviest I have ever weighed! I am determined to lose enough weight to fit into a pair of size 14 jeans... so not sure how much weight that will be! Currently in a size 20 jeans! [uk sizes]
I am 47, have a lovely family, consisting of hubby, two sons and two daughters, two grandchildren and 2 dogs and a horse!!
I currently work part time 21 hours and love my job. Although I may be changing soon and working 37 hours... more money less freetime...
My weight history is like this...
Child - chubby, big boned, taller than everyone else
Teen - tall, big boned, size 14 when I left school
1st wedding - dress size 14 - age 19 - quite happy
1st child - age 21 - dress size after birth 20 [took couple of years to get to size 16]
1st Divorce - decided to lose weight and be more attractive size 14 again
2nd marriage - age 29 weight 10stone 7lb dress size 12 - thinnest I have ever been
2nd child - age 30 after birth dress size 18
3rd child - age 31 after birth dress size 20
2nd divorce - slimmed down to size 12 /14 once again... [see a pattern here?]
3rd marriage - dress size 16 - very happy and comfortable with this man 2004
since then I have hovered between size 18 - 20 why is this I ask myself....
I look so out of shape it is awful to look in the mirror, I have folds of fat that I wish weren't there... I have always had big boobs but these are way to big! My tummy is huge, I look pregnant some of the time... I don't feel sexy or look sexy and I have to say this is affecting me more than I like to admit...
My hubby is chubby but he has started exercising more and is hoping to lose weight this way... he loves me and I love him and we are sort of made for each other in so many ways... the difference is I can't eat the amazing food he prepares as it is too fattening and rich for me... and he thinks I am rejecting him when I don't eat it... [this is where the fix is needed]
I have decided to do Neris and India's Idiot Proof Diet because it allows me to have many of the things we like to eat - just cuts back on the carbs...
So I am on day 5 of phase 1... so far I have lost about 4lb [I sneaked a peek at the scales this morning] weigh in day is Sunday morning!!
Phase 1 lasts two weeks or longer if you can manage it and have a lot of weigh to lose.... I plan to stay on phase 1 for 16 weeks taking me to the end of November... by then it would be great if my party dress for Christmas could be a size 16...
I really need a few online buddies to help me stay on target and get there... no matter what diet you are on I will happily offer my support to you...
If you are doing this diet it would be great - not essential...
Hope to hear from somebody soon
