I lost 3.3kgs this time. My body took a while to recover from the brownies, plus I've been cheating with a bit on meat more often than I really should be. But the good news is that I;ve reached my 8% goal, so I'm into the next stage of the trial. My total loss so far is 11.2kgs.
There are still 4 more weeks to go of just the shakes and vegetables, so I'm hoping to get down to double digits.
I've being feeling a little bit faint this past week, when I stand up too fast, or stand for too long. My blood pressure has always been on the low side, so maybe it has dropped I bit more. I've also been feeling like my muscles, mainly in my lower half, are fatigued - slightly sore and heavy.
A few positives: my hair is growing quite quickly and is super soft and silky, my skin is free of acne, I've got a lot of energy, my clothes are super loose and clothes that didn't fit before fit perfectly now. It looks to me that the weight is coming off around my middle, which I'm super pleased with - I can't wait for the measurements come week 8.
I'm going to start exercising a bit this week - more walking and getting on the cross-trainer or stepper for a few minutes a day.
Another update next weight in.
