Default HopetoSkrink New Diary

Hi All.

I followed Dr C in September 2008, starting weigh 83.5 and reached my goal of 68Kg, but stupidly did not follow my re-feed! I kept the weight off until 2011 when the weight started to creep back and then I fell pregnant with my first little person, weighing in at 115kg. I was 97kg after my little man was born. This was followed by immigration, new job, new house, new country and in 2015 falling pregnant with my second little person. I was 97kg when I fell pregnant, and with the nutritionist help, only gained 10kg, of which most fell off after baby was born, but weighing in at 98kg again I had to do something. So September 2012 I began Cohen's again, but tried to not weigh my food as much so that I didn't get stressed out with the new baby ect. I would have a tiny bite of a chocolate, or a glass of wine here and there, and the weight did drop and by Christmas 2012 I was 87kg. Following that by July 2017 I was a 82kg, and have not really budged since. On Sunday I decided to go deviation free like my very 1st try at Cohens. I want to weigh 68kg by the 12th of January 2019. That will be my 37th birthday. I am hoping to be around 70kg on the 1st of January so I can start re-feed then. Ironically my start weight is 83.5kg which was my weight during my first successful attempt. I love the programme, and although I have tried 1000's of plans, etc this is the only one which works for me. I just need to stick to it. I read an article a few nights ago which says you have to have a big enough 'why' to see weight loss through, and mine cam two weeks ago when one of my sons friends told him he though I was fat....and my son said No, its just my moms jumper. I don't want him to have to ever deal with a comment like that again. I also want to be a great role model for my little girl and her association with food. I know my goal maybe a bit of a high ask, but I will give it my all. I don't want to waste another year of my life like this.
So wish me luck. I have got my measurements and my start weight, and I will try not weigh for as long as possible.

Hi Hope,
Good for you for going again. And yes, having a good "Why?" is paramount.

As you say, that is a tall ask (to be able to start Refeed on 1st Jan). Nothing wrong in having a goal, but it must be one you can control.

Now, you can control some things, inasmuch as you are dictating what you eat, but you really have little control over how quickly this might all happen. So, I do hope you aren't one who "must" meet that goal - those who think that way try to "push things along" (to their detriment) by eating even less when they see they won't meet their "goal".

May I suggest you instead stay as happy as you can, stick to your Plan rules, get good sleep, drink the water, and just LIVE for the next two months. It might be you CAN meet that goal - as those who are younger and those whose fat is "new" will shed it quicker - so, maybe !!

Good luck with it, Hope - and I hope to hear more from you,

Koh

Hi HopetoShrink,

I also did Cohens in 2008! This is my first time back since then and I also have about 15kg left to lose and would love to lose it by January but I am 56 and think a more reasonable timeline would be Feb/March for me.

Good luck and I hope you achieve your goal

Hi Hopetoshrink

Congratulations for taking the step in coming back here and setting goals. I only wish I had found Cohens so much earlier ie when my children were little as I am sure my life would have been more fun by joining in with my children rather than trying to hide and my photo albums would be so much bigger as for me, my self confidence was at my lowest point when I was the biggest.

And as for children, Cohens is easy adapable for families and a great way to teach children on clean eating, and less processed foods without them really knowing - which they will thank you for in the future.

Anyway, you will need to change shortly to "Iamshrining".

Have a good weekend
WB

Thanks so much everyone. I know my goal maybe slightly ambitious, and thanks you for making sure I am on the right path. I think I will, as you say, live the next two months as best I can see how far I can get and reassess my goal in January. I am in it for the long run now and will see this through for the final time. Today I will meal plan for the week. Aiming for chicken stir fry for dinners and tuna/cheese salads for lunch. Today so far I have had mozzarella and baby marrow. Rice cakes for breakfast, subway chicken salad with only good stuff and for dinner I will be having tuna cakes with veggies. Really looking forward to being in the 70ís. Really hope I can before the end of November. With you all well as we head into another week of healthier us!

... I reckon you can/will do that - and with luck, be well into the 70's by the end of November.

Are you one who stays off the scales, or do you check regularly? Dr Cohen says "Weigh monthly" and we respect his advice - but for some people, there might be a way that is better for them - see this link:-

You do what works best for you. Keep smiling, and feel the buzz as this path takes you to where you want to be.

Thank you so much for that Kohinoor, I needed to hear that. When I first did Chenís I only weighed every month but I had a consultant then. Now I am on my own, making me my worst enemy. So I feel I need to weigh myself just to keep me going. I know the program works and is the only programme which works for me so I just need to stick to it. Yesterday I read my new customer guide just to refresh my memory and already picked up a few oversights on my part. So have rectified these and I immediately saw a lose this morning, so am grateful for the scale as it confirms that no deviation is too small to make a difference. I really need to see this and process through for a final time👧👌. I have a few speed bumps coming up. I got through fireworks at my childrenís school deviation free last night. We have bonfire night at our house on Saturday with a BBQ going, and I am baking brownies, but my plan it to simply eat my food and have a coffee or Sprite Zero while everyone enjoys a glass of wine. Next week I am traveling for work for 2 days. I am planning to get some fat free yogurts for the two mornings and simply eat green salad and protein at both other meals. I miss have tongues s based on portion size and stay away from the win or G&T. I travelled a lot when I did this in 2008 so I know I can do this. I am hoping to see a bit more movement on the scales this week. I think I will try and wait to weigh until Sunday as this will make sure I stay good on Saturday. But if I need the affirmation I may need to step on on Friday. I hope you are all doing very well and feeling very motivated. Thank you again for the support.
