So I thought I would keep a diary of my C9 journey to let you know what to expect from the plan so there are no nasty surprises!
Day 1 – Monday 26th June 2017
I woke up full of anticipation and excitement if I am being honest. I read the book and knew what to do but Sam had already got up for the Gym and left everything out ready for me, bless her.
Lets be honest, Having seen Sam take her Aloe I can’t say I was looking forward to it at all.
I all honesty , it wasn’t too bad but I can say that after taking the dose at Lunchtime it is certainly better cold than warm! Get it as cold as you can!
They say days 1 and 2 are the toughest. They are not wrong. All day at work I have been picking on free foods and following the plan. Normally I can go all day without eating but for some reason either the supplements are making me hungry or the fact I am picking on free food is making me hungry. Maybe I just should not eat at all?
Then I got home in the evening and, well I can’t lie, I feel shocking. Headache etc., but my sister tells me that it’s just the toxins coming out. Felling like I did, I am wondering how many toxins I had in my body, must have been a fair few.
Having taken my last lot of supplements and aloe I settled down with some free food (broccoli). Normally it is 10 or 11 before I am ready to go to sleep but tonight I am struggling at half 9!
Good nights sleep but still woke up with a headache and feeling a little sick but nowhere near like yesterday! As they day went on I really didn’t feel too bad. Had all the bits when directed, even just necked the Aloe Gel straight out where I normally have to psych myself up for it.
All in all a decent day. What I think has helped was the Shake (which are delicious!). I forgot it yesterday so didn’t have it at lunch time. I really think the affected me. The other thing was, I did a gym session last night and left feeling terrible. I never leave the gym feeling bad but yesterday was awful. The book you get with the pack does say 30 mins light exercise, but maybe doing a big gym session was not the right idea. 2 days in and I am starting to enjoy it (I think)
Woke up feeling great, Not sure if this was because I actually felt great or if it was because I knew I could eat a proper dinner this evening!
Sam shared her results this morning and she has done incredibly well. Just hope I can have half the success she had.
Having a meal in the evening was amazing and to be honest, I cant believe how much I actually appreciated it.
I am starting to think that eating more than just the shake during the day is not good for me and it seems to make me hungrier as the day goes on. Maybe I’ll try not eating during the day tomorrow and see if that helps at all.
So today started pretty badly. Went to work, lost my job! Some people are very short sighted and some just plain vindictive. Anyway. These people are not worth a discussion.
After these events I could quite happily have stuffed my face with comfort food but I didn’t. I am half way through this (almost) and not planning on giving up now.
What I am starting to notice is the feeling of being bloated has gone. My cloths are a little looser so things must be going right.
I went to the gym last night and I have lost around 2kg so far so it must be working.
I couldn’t honest get through this with the support of my amazing wife and my incredible Sister! Their support has been invaluable.
Lets hope tomorrow is a little better than today.
Days 5 & 6
I have rolled this into one as nothing really has happened. I switched things about a bit on day 5 as I got invited to a business lunch. Fortunately the restaurant did me a plain chicken breast with veg as opposed to the fancy stuffed chicken they served everyone else.
Saturday brought a trip to the cinema with Lucy and I sat there watching Despicable Me 3 with just a bottle of water!
It has been a tough week so far for lots of reasons but I do not think I could have coped with everything with out C9. I do feel good in myself. 3 days to go and I am less and less worried about the weight loss side of things as I can feel the positive effect it has had on me in general.
Game Day! Lucy and I went to watch the Sheffield Eagles. Again there was pie ‘n’ peas on offer but didn’t even think twice about it. I have reflected today on the last 7 days around all the times I could have quit or cheated in the last 7 days and I am so glad I didn’t, and I have come close!
2 days to go and I now know I will not be going back to what I was like pre C9.
Well today is my first day of starting the new business. Following the events of last week I decided that I was sick of working for people and that if I could replicate the success I had on my own, everything would be fine.
Even being at home more than usual, I was not once tempted, In fact the day went so fast I nearly forgot the shake at lunchtime. Even went to a breakfast networking event and didn’t have the food on offer. Just waited till I got home!
I have to say I do feel good
Starting this journey last week I was so looking forward to this day, but having got here, I have to say I am a little disappointed its over and apprehensive about what happens tomorrow.
Got to say that I do feel a little bloated today for some reason but I am really proud of what I have achieved.
Well this morning I have done my measurements and I am ecstatic! I have lost 10 Inches in measurements from my Chest, Waist, hips etc. and lost three quarters of a stone over all in 9 days. This is the best thing I have ever done. I don’t want to stop!
In conclusion, I don’t think anyone has done C9 and had the week I have had. Losing my job, and other issues but had I not been on this programme things could have been different in the way I have dealt with things. I honestly believe being on C9 helped me deal with the situations I faced.
I have to say special thanks to My amazing wife for all her support and my sister, Kate for all her encouragement. Thank you Both from the bottom of my heart.
I would honestly recommend this to anyone. It is more than about losing weight, it’s a complete re charge of your body and any potential weight loss is a bonus.
