Since my once a week – sometimes twice a week visits to the gym weren’t exactly assisting me in losing weight I’ve had to resort to means I once deemed ludicrous. I’m on a low carb diet called the Tony Ferguson diet. Essentially it’s the Atkins diet but with some carbs still involved. I’ve only seriously been on it for a few days but I’m already experiencing the headaches, hunger pains and flatulence they said I was going to get.
I get to eat all the jelly and drink all the diet cordial I want but I don’t get to have bread and pasta and cheese while trying to lose the weight which is a HUGE loss to me.
Jeez, I’m boring myself now so to end, I’m just going to link to this cool Coca Cola ad in the vain of Grand Theft Auto:
P.S. I’m not allowed Coke or Coke Zero but I am allowed Sprite Zero. Cool.

Why don’t you keep yourself motivated and do a public bellychart on your weight loss like I was? Makes you scared to put on weight because people will know you’re being slack haha
How long are the headaches meant to continue for?
Where is this bellychart you speak of?
The headaches aren’t meant to last long and in fact I haven’t had one now since I wrote of it.
The farting however seems to start at 5pm and continue till the morning. I think it’s the sugar free lollies. 🙁
When I started on the Tony diet I kept dreaming of eating cream buns. I’ve been on it for a few weeks now. I’ve could have lost 2kgs maybe – I don’t get myself weighed anymore when I go and buy the packets because the scales never tell me that I have lost as much as my mind is telling me – and I’d much prefer to listen to my head! Clothes that were getting tight aren’t so tight anymore – that’s good enough for me! I’ll be down next Friday 16/2 – maybe we could go out to dinner or brekky on Saturday morning – Is there a Tony Ferguson restaurant in Brisbane? One more bit of news – my beautiful boy has been promoted to Corporal in Air Force Cadets (not that I noticed the extra strip – he had to tell me – DULP), and he was voted Reef Captain at School (similar to sports captain) – all this on the same day! He is now trying out for an Aerospace Bursery of $1000 – it helps with his studies? Only about 119 sleeps until I take off OS again – can’t wait. Gerry is also off OS this year – he is going to NZ with the School in June. Lucy isn’t going as she can’t quite commit herself to saving up 1/2 of the costs. Mick is very busy with his new job – seeing parts of NQ nobody really wants to see. Let me know how we can get together next week,
How much weight have you lost? To keep motivated I suggest you do get weighed each week as that seems to help me with my motivation. It is great to see the scales going down. I would love ro see a lovely slim abd healty Amy again. I have now lost 4.5kg and I honestly don’t feel hungry anymore. Don’t forget to buy those fat blasters from Coles. Naturapatha brand in the health food section. I think they also help. Love MUm
She is trying Lynne. She spent a good part of today in the kitchen preparing soups etc. for the week ahead. I must admit though I was taken aback when I found a perfectly useable bunch of shallots, their dark green tips missing, in the bin.
Again with the friggin shallots aka spring onions! Lets see you feel so superior the next time you are in the kitchen!
Mum, I lost 2kgs in the first week but I think that was helped by the fact that I’d had a lovely korean lunch minutes before I bought my first pack of TF shakes.
I’m enjoying the meals for dinner, but I have a hard time with the substitute sugars. It kind of leaves a fake aftertaste so I’m starting to think I’ll avoid the fakes all together. At least the jelly and chocolates are passable.
