    Back to it...

    Back to it today. Hoping it will be 3rd time lucky. Feeling really motivated, and ready to take it on 100% this time.

    Failed last time because I started a new job 2 days after I'd started back and it's quite a physical job and so I caved and gave up, that was in November.

    Keeping fingers crossed this time

    It's been ok - my biggest 'problem' is that I thought there would be a decent level of tastes off the shakes, but no! Actually I'll rephrase that the chocolate shake which I had as a hot chocolate & fruits of forest shake were ok, I will stock up on Fruits of F next week defiantly, but the plain porridge was not the best at all, like sweetened powdery sawdust and leek& potato soup was like salty gritty leek taste.

    I think more shakes next week - I see why SS+ is hard now!


    Have you started today?

    Gero mint choc is lush infact most of shakes are, how muich water are you mixing them with? I always do at least 300mls water and whizzed in hand blender for a min makes it all frothy and lasts longer and then occasionally bung in micro to warm up. Choc orange is v nice warmed too but can taste a bit bitty cold.

    Hellooo


    I was going to get a normal blender (what I use for my homemade soups etc) but I am wondering if a hand whisk/blender would be easier & less bulky on the side in the kitchen. You just pour out the whisk cup as opposed to big glass jug.

    I'm going to Argos site lol. After I've had another pee, jeez I've been loads today!

    Yes I'm glad you said you put more water in coz I think they are too strong with the ML they recommend.

    My fab is choc orange. I just do shakes and bars nothing else. I'm to scared to lol I'm hoping to loose 3 st. I'm just under 12 now and want to get back to 9 ish.

    Today is my first day, just had a mint choc shake and it was really hard to get down, I just used tap water though and so it wasn't very cold. Have put a bottle on the fridge for tomorrow

    I've set myself a mini challenge of a stone and a half by march 8 th.

    How much are you both hoping to loose?

    Will catch you both tomorrow, my bed is shouting me

    Night ladies x

    If you do decide on a blender as in a big bulky thing the shakes are lush with 300mls of water and 7-8 ice cubes all blended up turns into a v v v v nice smoothie!!!

    Hope you get a good sleep Rachel and that tomorrow is a very nice easy day for you. ooooo in my opinion shakes with just tap water are a nono, i put mine in fridge for least 4hrs or freezer for 45mins before i have one unless im having it warm of course lol

    I've lost 87lbs so far and want to lose another 21 by my bday in 6wks then i'll have 12lbs to get to being overweight and then itll be about 2st more to get to healthy BMI

    Have you started today?

    Get yourself a Toffee and Walnut shake and mix a teaspoonful in with the Original Porridge -- it's really nice. Reminds me of Oats So Simple with Maple Syrup.
    Pass on all of the soups myself.
    Soon you will be able to have the bars (Malt Toffee is my fav) and that will expand your horizons dramatically so hang in there it gets better!

    I've kind of got myself stuck in a rut with the different flavours, I know what unlike and I don't dare try anything new. I think it's cos this diet is expensive and I don't want to waste anything.

    So far this morning I'm raring to go. Feel a bit light headed but other than that ok. Ill hold off on my first shake until about 11 ish. Got lots of jobs to do round the house to keep me busy. Tuesday and Wednesday are my only days off so I need to get over the worst of it by the time I go back to work.

    Hows everyone else doing this morning?

    Morning all,


    Funnily enough I spent the night having dreams where I was eating broken Bourbon biscuits (which I hate), and jam creams - and when I was getting weighed I hadn't lost anything - but in the dream I genuinely thought these were allowed on my diet.....how bizarre!

    My CDC told me Cappachino is nice hot, with an extra teaspoon of coffee so think I'll have a go of that for breakfast.

    I ideally have 3 stone to loose (well 5st if I had it in me to be thin & keep going for that long) I am 14st now and happy to get to 11st, 12 would even make me smile!

    I am doing SS+ 4 shakes/white tea & coffee - the harder one must be 3 shakes & black tea/coffee??

    I think I may go to the 3 shakes & a 200kcal meal next week - but I would think 4 shakes would drop the weight quicker?

    When & how do bars come into the plan? I could have done with a book explaining all this to me!

    Didn't you get a book? You can have the bars at 2 weeks I think. But only one a day and you have to have extra water to.

    I can't stand coffee...I seriously wish I did like it but however many times I have tried to like it I just can't lol

    ive got a mountain of ironing to do this morning...I might crawl under it and have a snooze lol
