Diet Day 5

The diet’s going well , I think .
I haven’t weighed myself yet as it’s only day 5 but I have noticed my double chin has gone down 😀

I feel less bloated . My stomach is still fatty lol but I don’t feel like a balloon all the time . I feel like I can breathe out without looking 8 months pregnant :/ haha !

I am still having a cup of tea / coffee though . Only one a day 🙂 (instead of 6-8)
I have substituted all sweets for fruit 😀
Tesco have an awesome selection ! I have found lemon golden raisins , which are my new fave thing !!
Also dried cherries 😀

I do find myself craving for a lot of veg too . Carrots , peas and sweetcorn mainly .
As I’m veggie I use quorn bits in with the veg . Today (and yesterday) I have had peas , sweetcorn and quorn bacon bits , in a bowl with a teeny pinch of salt 🙂 OMG !! So yummy !!

I’m also finding myself drinking a lot more water 🙂 I love my fizzy peach water but also apple and pear barley squash . Along with plain water too .
It’s best ice cold though as room temp , I find , is harder to drink :/

I have made plans to start the gym . Sadly, something has happened this week so I can’t make it . I have to book an induction but they only do them on a Monday . So I will be booking myself in for next Monday 🙂
I can’t wait to get going . I’m going with 2 friends so we can motivate one another .

Thanks to TeaTox , I actually have the energy to do something lol
I’m not needing to nap in the afternoons anymore 🙂 I can’t remember the last time I didn’t need a nap !! I feel great .

It helps my depression big time . I’m wanting to get up and do things !
I’m not just sitting around “bored” . I’m up and moving around . Watching programmes , making food , sitting in the garden , etc .

So there are many benefits of being on this diet 😀

Just 9 more days to go and I will post my before and after weight .
I’m only on the 14 days trial but I will be going onto the 28 day trial after this !

Let’s see if I can lose this 5.5 stone by August . I’m feeling positive 😀

TeaTox , Getting slim & helping my depression

As of tomorrow I am starting a diet.
I am sick to death of struggling with my weight day in day out .

I don’t eat a lot but I bloat !

I’ve tried just eating healthy and upping my daily meals to 3 a day instead of 1 but it makes me feel sick . I bloat and am in a lot of pain .
Since I started on my medication 3 years ago , I have put on 5.5 stone. It’s not helping my depression and it’s making me more and more lazy . I have next to no energy through it all and I hate photos of myself. I see myself as the fat blob in the corner.

We have a wedding in August so my aim is to drop 5.5 stone by then 🙂
Myself & Rob are hoping to be starting the gym next week . 2 hours for 5 days a week , every week after he finishes work.
We both want to lose weight and shape up to look good in the photos haha !
But also because of our health !

My anxiety prevents me from going out alone and I can’t ride a bike or go running because of my joint pains . But I am going to be working with someone in the gym so I can safely work out . My Doctor said it should be ok but no heavy weights or anything above my head because of my spine 🙂
I’m not looking to bulk up with muscle any way so will be avoiding that haha

I am starting the TeaTox diet first thing ! Fingers crossed it works , I have heard so much good about it 😀

I will be posting before and after photos too …. Even though I HATE my body 🙂
