Weight loss update March

It's been 2 months since I did the 7 day Jason Vale Diet detox and I have incorporated certain changes which I want to share with you.

Firstly I am 5 feet 3 inches and ahemmm years old!!!! The highest I have ever weighed is 57 kgs ( bad bone crushing heart wrenching breakup )while the lowest grown up weight was 45 kgs ( I was brisk walking 3 times a week and gym-ing around once in two weeks and was in a really happy and positive state)
I weighed 54.8 kgs before starting the program
I started the program on Jan 2013 and I weighed 54.8  kgs
on completing the program I weighed 53.8 kgs. In February I weighed and my current weight on 1st March 2013 is 53. That means I have lost 1.8 kgs in 2 months. This is slow and steady weight loss plus I don't have a lot to lose in terms of weight . I just have to tone up a few areas.

The changes which I have incorporated
I start my day with 2 amla shots ( I can't stand lemon/lime water + honey or aloe vera)
Breakfast is light either a fruit/shake or roti + last nights cooked vegetables or lentils or single toast with little butter/ peanut butter
I have given up tea and coffee and maybe have it once a month.... ( I used to be a heavy black coffee drinker)
Lunch is home made
Snacks is roasted salted peanuts or the smallest bag of potato crisps
Dinner is home made + salads
I still have ice cream and chocolates but not everyday ( I used to eat chocolates everyday... yes every single day.... I even use a Belgium chocolate body scrub which I got in my January Vellvette box here. ) Yes I am crazy about chocolates (dark chocolates /nuts chocolates only )
I am a vegetarian and don't drink milk....(makes me sick) .... I can have ice cream, cheese or curd but little amount at a time
I get really tired after office ( 6 days working sob sob) so I don't feel like exercising that much. I exercise once in two weeks or if I am really lazy then maybe once a month. But then I exercise for 1 hour and usually to online fitness videos on you tube.But that doesn't mean I am not active. Every day I brisk walk 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening from my bus stop to home and once or twice I got down a couple of stops before my stop and walked home. Plus about twice a month during lunch break I walk for around 15 minutes with my office colleagues to go shopping.So I am moderately active.

Sometimes I do meditation or deep breathing in the morning.I never had any problem sleeping. I go to sleep at 11 or 12 and get up at 6.30 am (even on Sundays.....)

You have to modify any fitness/ well being program to suit you and rather than sticking with anything hard and fast try a couple of things and see what suits and gives you the most results plus is sustainable in the long run.
