I have only just returned to this forum after almost a year off & I would love to join your challenge.
I have started an 8 week challenge to lose some kgs for my 20 year school reunion in Oct. but my ultimate goal is to get back to 55kgs (which I was before I had kids!) & I think that this may be achievable by December.
I am on the celebrityslim program which is very similar to TF & I actually had some great results with both programs about 2 years ago. I lost 8 kgs in 6 weeks on the program so it does work & I know that I have gained the weight back, but that was purely because I gorged myself stupid over the past 18 months! Not to mention that I stopped exercising completely!
There were a few other factors contributing to my weight gain too, which really came down to my emotional state & I am one to eat my emotions
We moved to another town where I knew no-one & then I lost my baby at 12 weeks gestation. Then a week after the baby I was hospitalised with an infection brought on by the surgery. I was just an emotional wreck & not having any family around me made it all the more harder to pull myself out of despair.
But now I am in a better place, mentally, & I feel soooo ready to tackle this weight issue once & for all! So bring it on girls! We can all do this!
Today was my first official day back on the CS program & so far so good. Nights are particulary difficult for me as that's when I pick at stuff that's bad for me!
I find that by making up a big bowl of diet jelly, it tends to keep these "pickings" at bay & on the TF program you can eat unlimited diet jelly so that may help you too with the late night binges. Also, if I'm craving chocolate, I will have a jarrah choc-o-lait. They aren't really "allowed" on the TF program, but I didn't follow it to the letter & I still managed a loss every week.
Just hang in there hun, it will get easier I promise. Just get through one day at a time or one meal at a time if that's easier & remember your 2litres of water, it really does help.
Good luck hun & here's to the challenge
