Hi everyone

Well this week was the worst ever...... I have really struggled this week :cry: . To start with it's almost TTOM and I have craved the big C (chocolate) :evil: all week and then the last 2 days pizza. I actually got so desperate yesterday that I was searching The Tony Ferguson (as this is the program I am doing) forum for pizza recipes and actually talking to the computer saying "how can that be pizza if there is no CHEESE" ahhhhhhhh.... Then I spent the last half of the week feeling really lethargic and my limbs feeling heavy.... The big C entered my head again but it was pushed out by a banana..... (why can't someone invent chocolate flavoured banana's????) :lol: . On Tuesday I went and had a blood test to check my iron levels (suffer from haemochromatosis) and almost passed out in the clinic (she kept digging the needle around in my arm and I started to feel sick, went white and broke out in a sweat. My head was spinning.... I always say "that needles are against my religion and I am allergic to pain" LOL!!!) She made me lie down and kept asking if I wanted a lolly as I had had to fast for the test. I kept saying no and in my head I was thinking NO LOLLY NOT ALLOWED IN THE PROGRAM....

Even after all of that I have stuck to the program 100% even though I was almost in tears last night wanting pizza so bad. But knowing I would prob only be able to eat 1 piece then hate myself and prob spend the night throwing up!!! The only thing that I had that I maybe shouldn't have is a 40g tub of the kraft philly lite spring onion and chive cheese...

For most of the week including yesterday I was sitting on 89kg. Then when I got onto the scales this morning to see I had lost 2kg (biggest loss since week 1 spec with TTOM looming) I was stoked.......

10kg gone WOOOO HOOOO :D :D to celebrate yesterday I decided that as I had almost lost 10kg I was going to dye my hair..... Chose a red colour (in hind sight maybe a little too bright :oops: ) so new me with new hair.... I just looked in the mirror yesterday after I had done it and went OOPS still had a bit of blonde left in it..... I described it to my best friend as ELMO red.

Well if you've gotten this far in my rant I hope that you all had a great week too!!!

Well I went to the doctor today to find out the results from my blood test...... My Iron levels are the best they have ever been........ I am so excited. I feel like a normal person.

While I was there I told her my total weight loss since starting TF (I saw her the first week I started and let her know). She was amazed. I then told her how I have been feeling lethargic and exhausted for the last week and she asked how many calories I have been consuming per day. I told her it was between 750 and 850 a day and she told me that was way too low considering I had a physical job and I had lost too much too quickly.

I am allowed to stay on one shake a day for the next week or so but I have to increase my calories to 1000 by the end of next week and then increase it to 1200 for a couple of weeks then to about 1300 a day. Calorie King recommends 1480 for my weight and height at the moment.....

I told her I didn't want to gain the weight back and she said that as long as I was sensible with my portions and also with my choices of foods then I would be fine. She also said that if I hit a plateau after a couple of months then to restart 2 shakes a day for 2 weeks to kick start again.

I know that what she is saying is correct as I have been fighting HUGE demons the past 4 days as I have felt exhausted and have just been craving "crap" because it was a old habit to eat it when I was tired......

I know that my results are going to look shocking now but "that's life" I CAN DO THIS MYSELF AND SUCCEED..... Well that is what I keep telling myself anyway.... :mrgreen:

Well guess I now have to get up off my butt and start dusting off the $900 elliptical trainer that I just had to have 2 years ago that has turned into a lovely ornament on my lounge room floor. I did not want to do exercise before on the plan as the calories were so low anyway and with my job and exercising I thought it may be "dangerous"..... so NO MORE EXCUSES.... :roll:

Big thank you to all the girls who have answered my questions and also offered support and congratulations you guys are wonderful and I think I am going to need all the help I can get .......

Thanks Holly

I said from the start of doing the Tony Ferguson Plan that when my doctor told me to stop I would. If I had not complained about the lethargic feeling she would prob have told me to keep going.....

I actually hit another goal tonight. I was talking to my best friend and filling her in on all of this when I told her my next goal was to fit into the bridesmaid dress I wore at her wedding 2 years ago in September. I actually got it zipped up though it was snug around my boobs..... WOOOO HOOOO

So far goal 1 - lose 5 kg COMPLETED
goal 2 - lose 10kg COMPLETED
goal 3 - fit into bridesmaid dress and have it zipped COMPLETED
goal 4 - fit into tatty jeans
goal 5 - fit into embroidered jeans
