I’m down 23pounds (10kg) on the 11th of May, 2015; Day 40
This is less than the anticipated 30 pounds loss because I was stealing food.
Let me confess, I just became a thief in my own house; The Fridge Raider.
By Day 14, I was going quite mad just thinking of drinking any more lemonade. I just couldn’t do it. It was even easier to just drink water.
So I started having fruits; one mango a day through out week 3. By the end of week 4, I was craving pepper and meat so I started sneaking to buy kidney Suya too (My sister will kill me for this but…).
I stole some groundnuts (just a handful) a few times and I think I stole a little bread the other day…
All my ”cheating” were in really small quantities because I felt really guilty and I wasn’t really hungry. I just felt tired and sleepy most of the time.
However, weight loss slowed, but I was able to perform better at work. I also resumed walking, short walks in the evenings to keep my metabolism up.
So, I was cheating 3 days a week and just lemonade for the other 4 days.
Either way, I’m proud of my achievements so far.
My goal is 70kg so I still have 14kg (30pounds) to lose before my 31st birthday, so I would be trying another diet or eating pattern called “Intermittent Fasting”
Yes, I am going to continue trying different ways to achieve this weight loss goal, and I am hoping that this time, you (chunky monkey) reading this, will join me!

wow! you have done well! really, if I could just do this much you have done. well, my excuses (and those are exactly what they are, EXCUSES!) are: lemons are seasonal (in all fairness, I have searched for them) and marple syrup is gold, just can’t get it plus lekki and abuja are far from where I stay. there! those are my excuses for not being able to do what you have done so I applaud you 🙂 you’ve really done well Red!
oh, by the way, anyway to help overcome my excuses? lol
