The Diet Diaries #2 A Day On The New You Plan

Yesterday was day two on The New You Plan, I won't lie it was bloody hard!!! I popped over to my parents, my mum had cooked up a Sunday roast which looked and smelt amazing! Especially the roast potatoes! I could have very easily said "sod it" I'll have some but I didn't. I sat down with everyone and ate my bowl of vegetable chilli. It was actually really nice, spicy and tasty. I'm so glad I didn't give in.
I thought I'd share what I ate today and how I've been feeling in regards to hunger. For a total food replacement programme, there really is a great range to choose from!
For breakfast I had the apple and cinnamon porridge, I much preferred it to the original oatmeal porridge. You can taste the cinnamon and it has little bits of apple. I will definitely purchase these if I continue on the New You Plan.

I ate lunch about 1pm and was feeling hungry at this point. I decided to have one of the meals and went for pasta carbonara. I do love my carbs so I was happy that there were real pasta pieces. I really enjoyed this,'it's probably my favourite meal so far. I loved that I was actually eating pasta (albeit a very small portion) and again I would buy this.

We went shopping with my mum this afternoon, around half four I began to feel hungry, as I was busy browsing I ignored it but soon felt starving and a little light headed. 
So I sat down and enjoyed the dark chocolate truffa bar and I mean REALLY enjoyed it! Things always taste so much better when you're hungry! In my books you can't beat a chocolate based 'meal' so these are going down pretty well!

As there was a shorter time period between the last two meals I didn't feel hungry. For the final meal I had a mushroom soup with freshly ground black pepper. I drank it out of a mug this eve instead of putting it in a bowl. It's a watery soup so I preferred drinking it of a mug.

Whilst we were out I weighed myself in Boots and as I expected I'm the heaviest I've ever been. It's pretty depressing but seeing how much I weighed has made me more determined. I'm pretty disgusted at my current weight, if I don't do something about it I will only get heavier.

If you fancy watching, here's a vlog of my first day on The New You Plan

The Diet Diaries #1 A Little Intro

My weight has been the bane of my life since I can remember, right now I'm the heaviest I've ever been and it's time for me to do something about it. In the past I've had failed and successful attempts when losing weight. This time I really want it to be a success, that's why I'm starting a series on my blog and YouTube channel. I think they will help me stay on track and hopefully, at some point be  helpful to others embarking on a weight loss journey. If you have any tips for staying motivated or you are blogging/vlogging your own weight loss, I would love to hear from you!
Today I started The New You Plan, a meal replacement programme, look out for a review soon! I filmed my first Diet Diaries video which explains my aims, including exercise. I would love you to pop over and subscribe to my channel if you're not already :) Starting and maintaining a diet/healthier lifestyle is never easy as there are old habits that need to be broken.

My Sunday Photo 17/5/15 Selfie Fail

If you follow me on Instagram or facebook, you may have already seen this blurry pic! We were in the lift at Wagamamas and I attempted to capture a family selfie, getting Eliot to look in the mirror was a bit of a challenge. And this was one of the (failed) results! Still a nice little memory in my opinion!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate comments and read all of them!
