25th June – 1st July 2018
This week I have been trying to cut down on my food intake. When I set myself this challenge I knew it was going to be hard. All I kept thinking about was how hard it was for me last time in January 2016.
Back then I ate so little food. The food I did eat was protein, fruit and vegetables and very little of anything else. I remember I went from eating junk constantly to eating really healthy with a 5 hour break in-between each meal. I remember it was quite a major shock to my system. So much so that I was fit for nothing.
I spent most of my time in bed without the energy to get up. If I did get up I was so shaky. The hunger pains were so intense that I am sure they could hear the rumbles next door.
My life back then consisted of eating very little and sleeping a lot – I couldn’t physically do anything else.
Remembering what I went through then is very off putting now. Last time I did that out of desperation to lose weight and have more energy to keep up with the kids. However I have definitely got the energy to keep up with the kids now. I know I still have a lot of weight to lose but that desperation has gone.
I have this week though managed to cut down considerably. I don’t know how I have managed to do it because I thought my willpower was non existent. I have been eating mainly protein, fruit and veg and I haven’t found it as hard as I thought.
I have felt a little weak at times and on the very odd occasion shaky. It has however been nothing like it was before. I have even managed to exercise a few times this week too.
There has been one drawback though and that is I haven’t lost any weight at all – I just don’t get it. I know I am thinner though because I can feel it. It’s a good job I no longer concentrate on the scales!

Day 11 of detox
I am really proud of myself I have stuck to the diet for so long.
It is getting really boring though, I can’t wait to finish this detox, only 3 days left.
I am still a little shaky.

Day 9 of detox
I don’t mind so much what I am eating any more. I kind of have this attitude that it doesn’t matter what it tastes like going in, it’s what it does on the inside that counts. I don’t seem to crave sweet things any more either.
I did go to M&S food and it bothered me a little.
Still feeling shaky, I am amazed how I can survive for so long on so few calories it must be the quality and not the quantity that counts.

Day 4 of detox
I am still eating food I don’t like, but I am going to persevere with it in the hope that I do get to like it.
By late morning I got very giddy and shaky and I couldn’t shake it off, not even after lunch. I was so bad at lunch time that I cried my way through it. I just couldn’t cope any more.
Had to go to bed in the afternoon but I was really struggling. I got to the stage where I wanted to quit I thought I would tell Jenny the nutritionist so I called her.
She said that I am doing really well and to keep going and that what I am feeling is natural because at the minute all the glucose is coming out of my liver and the shakes are like me going through cold turkey. She said tomorrow would be better.
So I didn’t quit.
After dinner a was a little better.

Had to have a blood test today for the nutritionist its called a metabolic rate test. I went in the morning because I couldn’t eat before I had it.
I did however go for a walk first. Considering I didn’t eat before I went, I did alright. The hill is getting easier although I was a bit shaky.
I got very tired today.
