Cruising and eating

Well my aim after reaching my goal was to go a bit further. I haven't achieved that mainly because I thought I could do it on my own as I now knew what foods to eat and when.

I think the trouble with that is that you are not changing your foods as much as you should.

Variety is the spice of life is an old saying and maybe that is true.

I should have stuck to a new 2 week plan but my excuse was that

I had been busy packing and organising my husband and myself for our next adventure which is a 104 day cruise around the world.

Now a cruise is hard on a diet at any time so this will really test me. I will be really happy if after the holiday I am still at my goal weight which I have been able to maintain now for some time.Highly unlikely, although I will still be quite pleased if I only gain 5 or 6lbs as that will be easy to shed when we return.

Anyone else who has tried this great way of shedding the pounds,losing the flab or are just still thinking. Have a try the only thing you have to lose is pounds of fat and the price is great as it is a once only fee and your whole family can join in.

New Year--- New Me

Sorry That I have been a bit slow in keeping up to date.Time has got away from me but although I still haven't quite reached my target of 90kg/198lb.
 I am closing in though now weighing in at 93kg/205lb.

Considering Xmas & New Year parties,camping trip and families visiting I am still very pleased that I took action with this plan and changed my eating habits,I hope for ever.

I am looking forward to the New Year to reach my goal and then maybe a bit more.

I didn't really think that I could lose this amount of weight so easily with foods that I enjoy eating. I have given up on so many other so called diets.

My hubby is also pleased as he has dropped nearly 20kg/44lb in the same time frame.

One of the extra benefits of the Strip That Fat program is that it does not cost any extra for your family to join you in your weight loss program as they can follow your plan also.
Nearly there!!! with Strip That Fat

Staying on Track

After finishing the first 14 day program I printed a new diet out but more to my husbands food preferences.
I didn't follow and substituted her and there.
 As a result of this I only lost another 2.4 lbs in that 2 weeks.

Total for 4 weeks is now 15.4lbs.

The next week I had to go on a 5 day trip, oops I thought I would mess everything up.

Although I didn't follow exactly the plan, I was careful with the food and kept up with eating 5 times per day.
Even at the party we attended I didn't over indulge and as a result over the next 2 weeks I had lost more for a total loss now of 19.8 lbs.

The weight loss has slowed down but I am still going and after 8 weeks my total is 22 lbs.

I am very proud of this and I still don't feel that I am being deprived of any food.
Just do it and keep going.

This photo is after 8 weeks, halfway to my goal.

Days 8 ---- Day 14


Well, my cheat meal was very nice, but I couldn't eat it all.
Rack of Lamb with Soy/honey and roast potatoes, pumpkin, carrot,onions and sweet potato.
Luckily No.2 son called in for a visit and finished off both mine and my husbands servings.

I have been very lucky in the first week of diet as I have had no visitors to distract me from my goal.Today I actually missed meal 3 of the day, I lost track of time.
Instead I then had 2 snacks during the afternoon to get back on track.

Phone call from No. 3 son letting me know that he would arrive this afternoon with his girlfriend to stay a couple of days.

I had my meal first, then cooked for everyone else which was fine.


Breakfast was a wrap with ( eggs, any unprocessed meat, any veggies, any cheese )
No problems with visitors, they had eggs, etc as well.

Now that large meal should keep me going all day, but if I miss the next one I will be looking for more at meal 3, so as I had to go out for an appointment this morning, I just took along my next snack in case I was held up for too long.
Home in time for Meal 3 which was Steak with sweet potatoes.
Meal 4. I had Chocolate pudding & nuts.
Luckily Meal 5 was only cottage cheese w/ nuts & berries as I felt that I had eaten way too much today.
My son prepared Dinner for everyone else.

Another visitor called in tonight, my husband had a drink with him, but this was the first night that I missed out on my daily tipple.I didn't think that I would enjoy my glass with the meal that I was having.

DAY 10

I went with the menu as planned today apart from swapping Fruit meal. Peach,Plums or Nectarines not in season, I substituted an Apple.
I will weigh myself again tomorrow morning.

DAY 11
I weighed in.My reading was 11lbs lost,but my hubby said closer to 10.I'll go with 10lbs in 10 days.I am pleased with that.
Housework Today.
Vacuumed & cleaned the bathrooms.

DAY 12
Saturday today.I am going to watch football this afternoon, so I will make sure I have had my meals before I go.
Those Hot Dogs & chips might be tempting.
Home now, my team lost but they get another chance at the finals next week.
No problems with the food at footy and I resisted my usual Rum & Coke so as I could still have wine with dinner.

DAY 13

Today is my birthday, now 61. Keeping low key,have been invited out, but staying in instead.
Nearly finished the first 14 day meal plan, it has been the easiest diet that I have ever tried.
DAY 14

These 14 days have gone by so quickly and I didn't really feel like I was on a diet at all.
I have weighed in and the total overall weight that I have lost in the 14days is 13lbs.

That loss was with hardly any extra exercise except maybe walking a bit further than usual
