Changing my lifestyle!

Postby tanya » Tue Oct 09, 2007 7:10 pm

Hey guys. Figured i better start my own thread before Kate kicks my butt! :D
I have no idea what to say in here so i guess I'll just say a bit about myself..
I'm 22 and i was 107 at my heaviest last November. I managed to lose 4 kg doing the soup diet for a week in November and hated it lol. But it was good to get me started.
I did Tony Ferguson for 2 months in February and march and lost about 8 kg. I got down to 94.9 on it and then stopped coz it was so expensive and i kept being naughty on it.
I managed to stay at that weight until end of may for my engagement party and then after that kinda drifted off and did what i wanted.
Now I've decided that i want to change my lifestyle. Introducing exercise and better eating habits. I don't want to look at it as a diet because then i will fail like each other time.
I have always been overweight and was a 12-14 at my lightest. I started putting on weight when i was around 16 after losing my mum and then kept piling it on after losing my dad and going through severe depression and had a really bad time.
Anyway don't want to turn this into a sob story or anything but wanted to explain how i got to this. I just wish someone had pointed out to me that i was putting my health at risk by gaining so much weight..
I recently had my gallbladder out and I'm ready now to focus on losing my weight when im not to busy working lol.
Look forward to getting to know you all and following all your progress..
Phew that was allot longer than i expected and congrats to anyone that has made it to the end lol :D

Thanks for the replies guys its great to have more support :D
electrongirl i know what you mean about the soup. I lasted 4 and a half days and i stopped coz if i was to try and eat any more i would have just thrown it back up. Just the thought was almost enough lol.

The recipe was from this site kate. I'll find it and put it here so you can see what was in it. It was nice the first day or two and after that it was just sickening lol.
I went and did the food shopping today and was really good. No fudge or chocolate or my biggest downfall chips.
I found me a bargain tho and got some weight watchers chocolate cake bars for $1.50. They are yummo. so moist and chocolatey lol. ok thats enough teasing now!

Sacred Heart Memorial Hospital Diet
It has sometimes been called Diet Soup

It was used for Overweight patients to lose weight rapidly, usually prior to surgery.
ONE MAIN RULE FOR SUCCESS NO FRYING, SUGAR, BREAD OR ALCOHOL.
(A 10 litre cooking pot will be needed) This soup can be eaten whenever you are hungry
and can also be stored in the freezer.


2 cans Peeled Tomatoes
2 cans Sliced Green Beans
Full Bunch of Spring Onions
1 Bunch of Celery
2 Green Capsicums (optional)
1kg Carrots
2 cans of Rosella Tomato Condensed Soup

For extra flavour you may add Salt, Pepper, Chilli, Curry Powder, Parsley, Garlic, or any other Herbs and Spices.
Cut vegetables into medium pieces. Cover with water. Bring to boil then simmer
until the vegetables are tender.
Drink plenty of water, at least 6-8 glasses a day as well as any combination of the
following: coffee, tea, unsweetened fruit drinks and skim milk.

DAY 1 6-8 glasses of water
Eat any fruit NOT BANANA. Watermelon works well as its lower in calories. Eat only
fruit and Diet Soup today, (the more the better.) NOT ONE BITE OF ANYTHING
ELSE THOUGH.
DAY 2 6-8 glasses of water
Any vegetables and lots of Diet Soup. At the end of the day reward yourself with one
baked potato. (stay away from peas, corn and dried beans.)
DAY 3 6-8 glasses of water
Lots of Diet Soup, fruit and vegetables today. NO POTATO THOUGH.

IF YOU HAVE EATEN THE ABOVE FOR THREE DAYS AND YOU HAVE NOT
CHEATED YOU SHOULD HAVE LOST AROUND 2-3 KILOGRAMS.

DAY 4 6-8 glasses of water
Diet Soup, at least three bananas and as much skim milk as you want. Today your body
will need Potassium, Carbohydrates and Protein to lessen the craving for sweets.
DAY 5 6-8 glasses of water
12 Ounces of chicken or beef and up to 6 tomatoes or 1 can of peeled tomatoes.
Eat Diet Soup at least once today. (Remember the more you eat the more you lose.)
DAY 6 6-8 glasses of water
2 or 3 steaks of fish or beef and leafy green vegetables. NO POTATO.
DAY 7 6-8 glasses of water
Brown rice, vegetable juice, fruit juice and stuff yourself with Diet Soup.

IF YOU HAVE NOT CHEATED, YOU SHOULD HAVE LOST 4-8 KILOGRAMS.
IF YOU HAVE LOST MORE, STAY OFF THIS DIET FOR TWO DAYS BEFORE
RESUMING AGAIN. Go off the diet for 24 HOURS before drinking ANY alcohol.
