OOTN - last night

Mike and I went out for a meal last night with my friend and her boyfriend, its really great as the two guys get on so well so it always makes for a great night.



This was my outfit:



Fit & Flare Dress - Topshop
Black Shrug - New Look
Gold Belt - Primark
Gold Sequin shoes - New Look

I will let you into a little secret, usually when I go on a night out I feel I look awful but last night I actually felt nice for the first time in ages.  I have been on a calorie controlled diet for the past 2 weeks and I have lost 2lb in the 1st week and a 1lb in the second week. Its going to be slow going but my aim is to loose a 1lb a week that way I should keep it off. 
My diet is basic and easy to follow, basically I eat no more than 1200 calories a day.  It seems low but its achievable and I can still have little treats as long as they are under or around 100 calories and I don't go over 1200 a day. Plus I don't feel hungry and don't feel the need to be eating 24/7 like I used to be!

I would be interested to know if anyone has done this diet and how they found it.

I want to lost about 18lb by the end of May as I am going to Devon with two girlie friends in June and want to look really slim plus I have felt uncomfortable at the weight I was for far too long and finally had to do something about it.

  4. Gorgeous outfit and congrats with the weight loss. I lost allot of weight by counting calories, I just tried to stay below 2000 a day but I was allot bigger than you so it came off really fast at first now im smaller I dont really lose anything. Guess my body is used to it now. Id love to lose a cheeky little stone/half a stone x x
