Cutting Down the Calories

Hey poppets,
its me, long time no post (few days)............................well it is winter time, xmas is coming up :)..........calories intakes coming up and then if that happens so would my weight. I am at a healthy weight for my age, slim NOT thin, not chubby not fat. I wish i was thinner though, doesnt everyone......I have tried cutting down the cals, never worked. THIS TIME I AM DETERRRRRRRRRRMINED!!!

Ok, so i won't completely stop with the sugar, junk, choco etc...but will cutdown...
What i am hoping to lose is min 5lbs and MAX 1st, i would love to lose a stone by feb 5th (My 13th bday), well that is just a not-completely-random-but-nearly-random date i would love to lose that amount but it is unlikely unless i go VERY determined! 5lbs i would love, 7 would be even better (half a stone), i won't use a weighing scale but i would notice, my cheekbones would come more out and the tummy will be slimmer. I have pretty thin legs and similar arms but i hate my face, it is quite round so any weight put on DOES show which i hate cause if i
suck in my cheeks i look fab x...

.i was thinking to myself earlier after reading a blogger do a blogpost on how she is an amateur  fashion model, my mum used to model and i would quite like to model. But i am confident but would feel better being thinner, u always hear those stories of 'how i was confident with my weight, so i started modelling but with all those size 00 models round me i felt uncomfortable so i started not eating' bla blah blah.........ok im not certain bout modelling but it looks fun :)....

My weight-loss program will hopefully involve more exercise and less cals:

Low cal,eg: cereal. Cereal are complex carbs, instead of instant energy they produce energy which comes out over the period of the morning so ur less likely to be hungry. The cereal i would chose is Weatabix, with its bland ewy flavour u can add stuf. I recomend Canderal Sugar. Canderal is a low cal , 2cals per teaspon, sugar which can be bought anywhere, it is a great substiture for sugar cause sugar is 20cals per teaspoon. I love having one or 2 teaspoons of canderal and some grapes with my weatabix, i recomend have 2 pieces of weatabix instead of one, it will fill u up. Other options i would eat would be fresh fruit saled or a boiled egg.

Jacket potatoes are always a good option, quite low cal, filling and energy giving. other options could be Sushi, we ca nget small boxes of sushi at my school but we pay with a swipe card (they give us one at beginning of year nd u swipe into school with it and buy food on it) but it is priced at £3.48 for a box of like 5 things. One of smoke salmon bagels are ok..Smaller portions are apealing to me, salads or soup is also a good option..

I recommend having a bigger dinner, ur more likely peckish in the evening after dinner if u have an early dinner, which is better cause food is more likely to digest properly, so have a more balenced dinner such as grilled chicken and chips with vegetables. Chicken or minastrone soup, small amount of pasta etc....Try and get protein in here as well....

Fruit & veg:
I love fruit, but too much mixed together can be too much sugar and put on weight. Try and have them for dessert or have a small fruit saled for lunch or breakky. Veg, not as big a fan of this but my mum does make a meaaaaaaaaaan veggi soup, my eldest sister used to be veggie till recently and she always cooked this and it is good! with a mixture of a bunch of yummy veg i usually hate such as Courgette (ewww, who tries to be a cucomber.) tastes good with the mixture.....I recommend celery and fennel, because these are NEGATIVE calories if u eat them fresh, with the coldness and vitamins in them they are negative calories meaning that ur fat cells and energy have to work to heat them up and store as energy, LOSING CALORIES just by eating, i wish that worked with McDonalds.........

Special K mini breaks are really good and low cal, fruit and veg duh, no cereal bars!! they are to high in sugar and fats, a naughty snack i love, i have a pack next to me now at 113 cals are Vimto Chewy Sweets, yummy!!!!

Chocolate & Junk:
Cutdown at these!!! have none at lunch, i only have one bit of chocolate usually, it recently has become a habit of only having my Advent Calender, today i had a Wreath, there small and yummy, i have mine after breakfast. Try and eat a lack of sweets, drumstick lollies r a fave of mine but they are not good for u!! and they r addictive, grrrrrrr. stay away from u binge foods, like ice-cream, many people i know LOVE mint choco icecream (ew-ish). stay away from it but if u crave it, frozen yougurt is a good sub. Junk food, try and limit it down to like One maccyd's a month or one tackaway a month, i personally LOVE chinease yum yum....

Alltogether i hopefully should lose weight, im gonna do more walking etc....exercise plans i dont really stick to but i will do a reg update. hopefully one a week, for u 2 see how im doing, feel free to join me on this weight loss adventure xxxxx

  1. If you are already slim I think one stone is a lot in my opinion and you're only 12 so you should be really careful! From the profile picture you look really pretty :) Just sayin though! xx
