total food replacementI am back on Total Food Replacement, and it has been a few weeks from my last post so I have a lot to update you with!

I had a 2 week break from Total food replacement (TFR) as recommended by NICE.  (UK Government Health Agency)

I have to be honest and say that I did find it emotionally hard for about 3-4 days, I think it is the thought of knowing that you are going back on TFR Diet again, but I got through it without doing too much damage.

I put on one pound in the 2 week break, which is OK, considering I had a few slip ups!

When I did have my slip ups, I have to say it was a bit of an anticlimax, the food didn’t taste anywhere near as good as I thought it would and after a couple of mouth fulls I was asking myself… “And I am eating this because???….”  I didn’t eat much, for 2 reasons, I got full quickly and I didn’t enjoy it.  So in a way that has really helped me get back into TFR as I realise I am not missing out on anything.

Someone posted in Secret Slimmers yesterday that they would rather feel a little bit hungry than really full.  That feel after a big dirty dinner is awful isn’t!

I have just completed my first week back on 100% the TFR and I lost 5.5 pounds.

In January 2012 I weighed 15stone 10 (I was actually 16st 10 in November 2011), so I have lost 3stone 3 pounds from I started in January (and 4stone 3 pounds from November.)

My weight loss results haven’t been outstanding, some weeks have been better than others, but I am feeling more excited about the second phase of my total food replacement journey, as I can really see the light at the end of the tunnel now.

The Secret Slimmers group is a real source of inspiration for me, even though I am supposed to be the one motivating and encouraging everyone else, I get so much out of the group I even struggle to put it into words how much it helps me and how highly I regard the members of the secret slimmers group.  They are amazing. So many people in there have bigger and better success stories and weight loss journeys that I do.  If you are a new you plan customer you can get into this group, so definitely request to join it, as the help you get in there is invaluable.  Just want to say a BIG THANKS to everyone in the group who has supported me over the last few months.

So I am feeling very determined to get some kick ass weight loss results in between now and June, so I focused on 100% Total Food Replacement and lots more moving, walking, yoga & pilates.  I am going on a big trip to the USA in June, and want to be looking as good as I can before I go there.

I would ideally love to lose 2.5 stone – I have 8 weeks to do that, I know it is a long shot, and it is more likely that I will lose 2 stone, but hey, I will still be happy if I lose 2 stone! Ideally I would love to see the 9stone bracket.

Full steam ahead! 🙂  Yeooo…. xx
