So my 3 week challenge completed yesterday. Total weight loss for my 3 weeks was......'drum roll please' ......half a stone!!!...which I have to say I'm pretty pleased about. Yes I would of loved to lose a full stone but I think my hectic lifestyle last week hindered me to be honest.
Some days I would literally have to skip anything in the morning so ended up only having one shake and then a meal in the evening...so not following it fully last week may have been the reason my weight loss ground to a halt.....compared to the other weeks where I was strict and followed it to the book...and weight loss was achieved.
So does it work???......well yes, its hard going, no question and it takes a bit of getting used to, but if you do stick to the plan then that goal of losing a stone is very much an option. The shakes taste fine and iv actually got used the the 800 calorie limit..... I would say you do need to be a lover of veg as that was a saving grace for me when I was feeling really hungry.
So what now going forward?.....well I'm carrying on with the shakes for another week.....but strict this time.....to see if I can perhaps shift that other half stone, plus I'm going to stick with the healthy eating after that......its definitely changed the way I eat.and the way I look at food......plus I really want to hit my goal of that extra half stone. (I will keep you posted on how I get on). I also think the pressure of having to update on here has helped......its given me something to prove to other people that yes.... I can do it!!.
Was I sceptical at first about this diet?...well yes.....but I think as a short term kick start to losing weight this plan is ideal.....but you have to be prepared to change your diet for the long-term afterwards.
Id like to say a huge thank you to Slimavite for letting me do this challenge...and heres hoping i can 'high five' you with another half stone shortly!!
