Now for someone who is 5’2, that’s a lot.
I wasn’t necessarily unhappy just lazy and I overate almost everyday.
After my first “no parents” holiday to Malia, where I was called a “whale” thanks douche face, I came home and decided I wanted to do something about my weight, mostly because I wanted to wear really nice clothes.
I want to point out that at the time plus size bloggers and fashion icons had not yet emerged so I figured if I wanted to wear bodycon dresses this is what I had to do.
I did some research about what channels I could take and I cam across across VLCD.
VLCD stands for Very Low Calorie Diet.
These diet plans restrict your calorie intake and get you into ketosis (where your body burns fat) quite quickly.
I joined my first VLCD class and the weight dropped off!
Now I weigh much less but I’ve recently put on a few stones and I’m looking to shift those for the summer so when Shake That Weight contacted me to try their plans I couldn’t think of a better time.
Shake That Weight is a VLCD that helps most people drop a few pounds quicker.
Now I say most people as this isn’t for everyone as with VLCD’s you have a shake or soup based diet for a few weeks OR you can have 3 shakes/soups with a healthy low calorie meal.
If you like your food and you’re a regular eater, this may not be for you but as I’m familiar with VLCD’s I don’t mind this.
For my two week plan I’m going to be having 3 shakes (I don’t like soups) with a healthy meal because I like food!
Shake That Weight also offer noodles packs, snacks and ready meals if you wish to tweak your plan and do what works for you.
I find this handy as recently I have been terrible with portion control.
The shakes come in some delicious sounding flavours which I like and you can have them with ice or water or milk depending on what works for you.
I am going to be using Shake That Weight to see if it works for me and if I will be able to drop some lbs.
My most important task here is keeping up with my water which is incredibly important with VLCD’s, for the plan I’ve chosen: Woman with Meal Plan it’s recommended that I get at least 2 litres per day to make sure I stay hydrated.
I tend to not like to weigh myself, I go by how my clothes fit, but I weighed myself today for this post and I weighed: 12st 2lbs
I’ll be back in two weeks to give you more of my opinion and to let you guys know how I got on but for the meantime if you want to know more, have a read of their brochure HERE.
Before changing your diet please speak to your doctor first. When I started on my first VLCD I had to get this signed off by my doctor so I would recommend doing the same.
