I've never actually considered doing a diet like the one on the NHS website. The kind with plans, counting and more gradual changes to the diet. I've generally dealt with extremes. Like eating one small meal a day or not eating at all. I'd feel great because I could actually feel something different. I'd feel like I was making progress. I didn't like the idea of making minute changes, not feeling any different and not knowing if I was actually doing anything. But I'd give up the diet eventually after giving it everything I had got. So I was going from the extreme of feeling bad because I'd not eaten anything to the feeling of bad because I'd given up and I'd stop making progress. You've probably heard this story before. Well, today I thought it would be best to find the middle-ground, even if it goes against my all-or-nothing attitude.
My one worry is Cola. I'm addicted to it. It adds light to my day. I haven't been able to go without it for over a week in my other attempts at dieting and it's my one big worry of relapse in this new one. As determined as I am to make the necessary changes, I struggle to imagine a diet without Coke.
Another minor worry is that I won't be able to see any notable changes with this diet. 2lbs isn't that much to lose every week.
So here goes nothing. I'm gonna try to follow the plan as well as I can. Although I doubt I'll have much say on what meals I have since I'm not the only one in this household.
