I'm buzzing right now! Just weighed myself and I've lost 8 pounds in 5 days! So so so happy :) losing weight is one of my 7 goals this month too (see my post here!) so I'm doing well!
I've been trying to lose weight for my holiday since May, and I started off great doing a low calorie diet but eventually I just plateaued and stopped losing weight :( so since Monday, I've been essentially on the Atkins diet, where I'm allowed no more than 6g of carbs a day.
When I first started this, I thought it would be really hard for me as I'm a vegetarian, and as meat is low in carbs, that's how most people vary what they eat on this diet. However, living off cheese omelettes (if you think I'm kidding, I'm not, that's practically all I've eaten this week!) isn't too bad, and now I've got used to it and my body is burning fat, I don't see the point in stopping :)
I go on holiday in 11 days, so hopefully I may be able to knock off another 10 pounds or even a stone before then which would be amazing!! I will keep you guys updated, and will probably add some before and after pictures in my next diet post if I feel confident enough to.
Thanks for reading!
DISCLAIMER: I'm aware that you should lose weight gradually, however I'm not losing a ridiculous amount of weight and other than being overweight I'm a healthy young woman, so my body can handle this :) I'm not a health professional or whatever so if you're planning on doing a low carb diet, you should consult your GP first, especially if you want to lose more than 20% of your body weight.
