You may remember that last year, beginning in March, I attempted to get Fit By 40. Well, alas, I did not manage to rid myself of the three stone (42 pounds) of baby weight but did lose half of it by my 40th birthday in August. Sadly, I put on one stone (14 pounds) in the autumn. *sigh* This is the third autumn in a row that I've gained a stone. I think part of the problem is with my low Vitamin D levels. I get so tired in the autumn, as it gets harder and harder (to impossible) to make vitamin D from the sun, and I turn to sweets and chocolate for energy. But with January, I am feeling hopeful for spring. So now I am back on my quest to get lose weight and get healthy.
My Healthy Living Lucky Dip is in its fourth week. I have been following the Diet Chef programme for the past three weeks and am quite happy with the results. And I'm not the only one. Husband has been on the Diet Chef plan as well so I thought I would conduct a mini-interview so you can see how he is doing.Favourite part of Diet Chef: I really enjoy the breakfasts and dinners. I use the My Fitness Pal app to check exactly how many calories I consume. I normally get to eat more calories because I ride my bicycle to and from work on most days. Least Favourite part of Diet Chef: I miss eating sandwiches for lunch. I wish there was an option to just order breakfasts, dinners and snacks. Tips for anyone planning to order Diet Chef: Order for longer than just 28 days. There are so many choices, when it comes to ordering your meals. I now know which meals I love and which meals I am not bothered about eating again. Weight Loss: 6 pounds in three weeks.
I lost two pounds last week, which has given me an eight-pound weight loss from Diet Chef alone (12-pound total loss). My trousers are feeling looser and my tummy does not stick out as much as it did. I am a bit sad that I only have one week left of Diet Chef, as I am nervous that other weight loss regimes won't be as successful. But I will work hard this last week and hopefully the weight loss will continue.
