The impact of losing 13.5 kilos is amazing and I feel fantastic
No bloating, no sinus, no stomach pain – it makes me wonder what I had been eating that contributed to these symptoms as I certainly am not eating it now!
I am now on Day 40 of the TNH diet plan, having lost 13.5 Kilos in total and having exited at day 35 and moved to maintenance in the last 5 days. The impact of losing 13.5 kilos is amazing and I feel fantastic. No bloating, no sinus, no stomach pain – it makes me wonder what I had been eating that contributed to these symptoms as I certainly am not eating it now!
There was a point on the VLCD diet where my body had built up an immunity to the TNH drops and I did not lose anything for 10 days despite completing two ‘apple days’ to move things along. I found this VERY frustrating and in a major lapse on day 10, broke down and ate a hamburger!
I was very appreciative of Heather’s support during this time as she rightly stated that ‘no journey is without obstacles and setbacks are to be expected’. I felt she truly understood my struggle and understood that no-one who is 45 kilos overweight has a healthy or educated relationship with food.
Funnily enough it was this lapse that reinforced my desire to continue with the diet and healthy eating plan for my life as I could see how easily I could slip into the old carb & sugar addicted habits which have contributed to me being overweight in the first place.
The reason I am blogging this is because I want the reader to know that no matter how unhealthy and obese we are – or how many times we fail – it is how we get up and keep going that matters and I feel that this program has given me an excellent weight loss in a very short period but also a realistic support structure to work within.
I am looking forward to completing my ‘maintenance’ phase so that I can move onto another round of TNH drops and lose even more!
