Diet Chef: Week 3 Updates

Image from Tumblr
I don't remember the last time I dared to wear a body con dress, but a few days ago, on a night out I went for it and you know what? It wasn't so bad. I haven't lost all the weight I want to, yet, nor am I happy with my body as it is, but I felt enough confidence to 'don the con' and in the words of Taylor Swift 'shake it off.' This new found confidence is thanks to Diet Chef and that's what this post is going to be about, my week 3 updates, progress and how I've found it.

Well, I'm down 8 and a half pounds, which is exciting and my friends have mentioned to me that they can see the weight loss on me, which is so encouraging. I've noticed changes in my body personally, too. The tops of my arms are less 'jiggly' and my stomach is flatter and doesn't bloat as much- winning! I'm also completely comfortable with the diet chef food portions now. My body doesn't ask for more and I don't get those late night cravings anymore, which were my main downfall. 

The weight loss has slowed down, but I had been expecting this, as you always tend to lose more at the start of your diet. I'm at the stage of losing about 2lbs or so a week, which is a nice, healthy amount. Every meal I eat, I feel satisfaction that I've stuck at this for 3 weeks. Watching my pile of Diet Chef foods depleat is exciting and also a little bit worrying. I know that with Diet Chef, my three meals a day are sorted for me... There is no chance of overeating or binging and I don't have to worry about making healthy choices. Diet Chef has become a safety blanket I'm not quite reading to give up, yet!

Next week is the end of my month trial of Diet Chef and it will also be the week I finally reveal my 'before' and 'after' shots- eek! Stay tuned!

Personal: On Love

I'm infatuated with the idea that I'm the protagonist of a great rom-com. Right about now, the cinema smiles to themselves and thinks 'she'll look at this in hindsight and laugh' when 30 minutes later, I'm enthralled in a love so great even the hardiest of cinema goers sheds a tear.

But life isn't a movie, my life isn't a movie and I'm not sure if my life was a movie, I'd want it to be a crap romantic comedy girls swoon over and boyfriends roll their eyes at, as they suffer through its entirety on 'date night.'

We don't know what happens after the credits roll. The characters and their love, all fabrications of a tired screen writer, paying the bills until he gets his big break, his 'Breakfast Club,' simply end. They fade to oblivion. It's us, the shaky viewers who leave the cinema, New found ideas of what love is and where we should find it, providing us with uinstable foundations for romance, like Bambi, negotiating the ice.

Me and my spindly Bambi legs will continue to frequent coffee shops until I meet my Prince charming, until a spilt coffee or a mutual interest in reading paths the way to my great love.

On second thoughts, maybe I should just buy a cat.

Outfit: Cucumber, Banana & Tofu Launch Party

IMG_3060
Last week I was fortunate enough to be invited along to the screening and launch party of Channel 4, E4 and 4od's new series' 'Cucumber' 'Banana' and 'Tofu.' I got to see the first episode of each of the series, meet some of the cast at the after party and even go to the very top floor of the Gherkin for the best views of London, cucumber inspired cocktail in hand. I have an interview video coming on my channel very soon, with some of the cast of 'Banana' and a mini vlog of the event- so stay tuned for that. This post, however, will be showing you what I wore on the evening, photographed by the lovely and talented Mr Ollie Ali, who I interviewed, previous on my blog.

Dress: Missguided
Coat: *Urban Code London
Boots: *Barratts
I wasn't brave enough to go cold turkey -quite literally- without my tights, as the UK is very chilly at the moment, however, I did wear a strappy dress and my faux fur coat over the top- just for good measure. I often get a lot of people wanting to stroke or hug me when I wear this coat, the attention is quite nice, actually!

Thank you to Ollie, for taking these photographs and stay tuned for more info about Cucumber, Banana and Tofu!
