2020 started on a terrible note with me losing my Mum. Months of depression led to me stuffing my face with all sorts of of junk. Of course, with the metabolism I have, it was only a matter of time before I messed up all my hard work.
So, here we are, 6lbs shy from where it all began in the first place. A part of me is embarrassed that I;m back at this weight, but the other half realized that life isn't a linear journey. Sometimes things do not go according to plan and it is how you handle the situation that really matters.
That being said, I finally started the One2One diet again today, 4th May 2021. For those that don't know much about the plan, you are basically replacing foods with meal replacement shakes, soups, smoothies and savory meals. This program forces the body into fat burning mode, since there are no carbs available for the body to use as energy. The program which comes in various stages, allows you to discipline yourself with the Sole Source stage for about 12 weeks before introducing normal foods gradually into your diet.
I find that doing this strict diet may be the kick in the butt I need to get my weight back in check. With the joint aches I've been experiencing, I daresay losing some kilos will turn the situation around.
The day started on a great note. I must say that being very busy with work also took my mind off food. Sipping green tea also helped with suppressing my appetite and I've had one meal so far.
Starting weight is 247lbs and the plan is to get to Onederland by September. Will be logging daily and posting my meals.
Today's meals are Cappuccino Shake, Original Porridge and Green Pesto Pasta.
Wish me luck.
