Am heading to Royal Ascot in two weeks and just ordered a dress online - never been before as essentially have been pregnant for last 8 years (4 kids). DH always goes with work and this year we promised each other that he would get a ticket for me and that I would find the childcare.
So new size 14 dress arrives today. I love it, except it doesn't fit well - basically I am a size 13 and will send it back tomorrow to exchange for a size 12.
So I have 2 weeks to drop a dress size.
Am going to drink lots of water, eat small, regular meals that are protein based, no booze and move lots.
Today I had:
Hot lemon water
Buckwheat groats (soaked), almond milk, berries smoothie
Cup of tea
3x white coffee (skimmed milk - can't do black)
Small handful of cashews
Slices of red pepper, houmous, pumpkin seeds, prawns
Banana & egg "pancake" (kids tea dessert!)
Savoy cabbage stir fry & 2 fried eggs (in small amount of olive oil)
More egg than I would usually eat!
What do you reckon my chances are?
I need to lose a dress size in 2-3 weeks too but I think you will struggle on that food plan. I would be very unsatisfied with that diet which would lead me to cheat.
