Like so many other posters, I struggle to stick to things and am therefore writing this post to (hopefully) be more accountable to myself.
As the subject line suggests, I am 10 weeks away from my wedding, and have just subscribed to Huel. I’m a bit nervous about listing numbers on here, but I know I’m overweight. I’m about 35lb (about 16kg) above a healthy weight for my height. I know there is no way I could reach that goal before the wedding (and I’m not about to try and compromise my health!) but I would love to knock a good chunk off that number and maybe start married life at around 20lb lighter - 2lb a week is a healthy loss and usually what I lose when I stick to a healthy eating plan.
I will post progress updates once a week(ish) and maybe photos when I’m further along.
Date of post: 13th May, 2019
Weeks to wedding: 10
Clothes size (14-16)
Target to lose: 35lb (16kg)
I am going to be initially replacing breakfast and dinner with a 3 scoop shake and having my normal lunch at work (can’t really be dealing with all the questions that will come with a shake - or the raised eyebrows if I decide to have a piece of cake one day).
I have just had my first shake for dinner and added some cinnamon and a banana. I have gone for the unsweetened and unflavoured version, as although I know all Huel is low sugar, I’d still rather not have refined sugar and sweeteners (I did really well in terms of health and fat-loss on a completely refined sugar-free food plan a few years back).
The shake was fine - kind of earthy and neutral. I have made the same one for my breakfast and put it in the fridge to thicken up. I think I’ll have to find an alternative to bananas to go in my evening shake as I don’t really want to be eating two bananas every day. Any tips welcomed!
Wish me luck!
