    Newbies 2014

    Hi All,

    I am starting SS+ tomorrow and am excited and a little scared. Have done many other diets including CWP (for 3 months, lost 1 stone), and would love some support and advice on how to get through the first few days at least!

    Have a lovely consultant who has been supportive and helpful, but I know its all down to willpower, and this time am a lot more determined!

    Looking forward to hearing from other newbies who are starting, and those who have succeeded! Cant wait to start shedding the pounds!!

    Good luck. Just keep drinking water and remember it gets easier and easier as the days go by. I'm now on week 11, I can honestly say its flown by. You'll be there in no time. Just keep focused and strong. Try and keep yourself busy the first week or 2.

    Hi Annie,

    Fellow newbie here - me and the other half started this morning. We have a holiday in 13 weeks, so we're hoping to shift quite a few pounds between now and then! From what I can gather, the keto flu will be the hardest thing to get past but if you've already done it once, you'll know all about that!!

    Fingers crossed for both of us!

    Hi Annie.
    I'm also starting today and feeling really motivated. I'm doing the SS+ too. Had the apple and cinnamon porridge this morning, but wasn't to keen. But drank a pint of water.

    Just starting day 3, not as hard as I thought it was going to be. Drinking loads. Peeing loads. Just the motivation of getting on those scales next Monday is getting me through. Good luck everyone, keep posting! X

    Well done!! I'm just finishing day 3 and I done an exercise DVD at home. I'm feeling hungry moody miserable grouchy tired and just generally unhappy what with being so hungry. It's just one thing I can't cope with very well. I'm hoping it starts to get easier soon!

    My OH was really cranky when he got home from work today (he'd only done one day!) so you're certainly not alone and I think it's just your body getting used to it.

    How did the exercise make you feel? We are going back to the gym tomorrow morning (we are cutting down to two mornings per week for the first two weeks to do our BodyPump class) so wondering how you managed with the exercise?

    Hope everyone has a great day! x

    How's everyone doing today? Day 4 and not too bad, resisting the urge to weigh myself, everyone on here is having such fantastic losses that I'm worried I'll be discouraged if mine don't match up!

    I'm so fighting that urge (I've only done one bloody day!) but my other half has "bet" that I can't go a fortnight without weighing myself and I can't do with him being smug, so I am resisting! Think of the massive number you'll get at the end of the week, rather than the little ones you'll get everyday, that's how I'm trying to think of it.

    Or you could just hide your scales.
