    Smile Starting next Monday (9th June)

    Hi all

    i have my meeting with my consultant on Saturday but I won't be starting until Monday as we have a party on Saturday and we are going out for a meal to a friends place on Sunday.

    I am so ready to do this but worried at the same time as I just don't like milk so even though I know the shakes are mixed up with milk I'm just worried I won't like them but I guess it's a means to an end.

    i am a stay at home mum but Monday is a hectic day because of activities, do you think I will be ok starting on the Monday due to how busy we are? I am thinking it could help with the distraction but with the low amount of calories I'm just concerned.

    Hmmm mum I know I had another question but I can't think what it was right now.

    Anyway looking forward ward to joining you all next week

    Hi Newme

    I started for the first time on Thursday last week and I really felt very daunted by it before i started. Just seems strange to go without food. Now that i've done a few days i'm getting into the swing of it. I'm not really missing food that much (surprisingly), but today i really missed a cold glass of diet coke and i don't normally drink that much of it but there are a few odd cravings creeping in.

    I would imagine you'd be alright on Monday, I definitely think that drinking a huge amount of water helps. Maybe double check with your consultant first though if you're worried.

    Lots of luck!

    Thanks Bintie,

    good luck with your weigh in, only a few more days to go

    yeah I will ask my consultant when I see her, it is very daunting as you say, but I have to try.

    what products did you go with? I'm thinking a variety at first to see what I like.

    Good luck Spammie we can support each other.

    thanks Sparkles. I am thinking of getting the Choc shakes and having them hot like hot Choc, it's winter here so should be good. I have heard the Choc mint is good, don't think I have seen anyone say they don't like that one.

    Bintie I just notice we are same height and start weight although I think I am 14st 7, will find out when consultant weighs me. I am wondering how long I will need to be on this diet to get to goal.

    Hi, onwards and downwards for all of us from here on!

    I was quite enthusiastic about the porridge - until I tried it, oh my word!! I could've cried as it was my first sachet and I just thought I'd thrown 48.00 down the drain as there was no way I could eat that for a week. Luckily everything else has been much better.

    I did find that mixing the shakes with chilled water using a handblender made them a million times better!

    I've no idea how long I can stick at it, hoping for a good result on thursday and hopefully that will spur me on. It's my husband's birthday today, I cooked him a lovely meal, took him to the pub for a cpl of pints, he's now scoffing a plate of cheese and biscuits with a chilled glass of wine whilst I continue to slurp water! AAARRRGGGGHHHHH!!!

    Still, I've got a Banana Shake so it's not all bad lol!

    Best of luck peeps, we CAN and WILL make a difference xxx

    Just think ladies - it's not forever! I set myself the target of sticking at it for 50 days and I am currently on day 36! Real food will still be there when we have finished, it just takes a lot of willpower and support to stick at it. Think about why you want to be slim and every time you feel like cheating, focus on why you want this so much. You can do it!!! Xx

    Well done bintie for having such strong willpower.!!! Yes we can all do this!!!! Is the porridge really thank rank? I've had a mixture of products. I'm really not a water person...set cret diet coke addict so I'm thinking I'm gonna be a nightmare!!!! Keep us updated with your result Thursday? You can and will stick to it!!!! Think how good you will feel at the end!!!

    I'm thinking of buying something in the size I'm aiming for...purely as motivation. What do you think? Or am I just being stupid? I was given some sticks to pee on (sorry for my choice of words) on day 3 and 4. Have you entered ketosis? Sorry for all my questions :/

    Xxxxx

    I might be weird, but if you use a bit less water and make the porridge a bit thicker it's quite nice!

    Hi, I thought the porridge was minging but everybody's tastes are different - give it a whirl, you might like it!

    I'm assuming I'm in ketosis,I wasn't given any 'pee sticks' but as I'm 5 days in and not hungry I assume so. I will check out with my consultant though as I'd like to know.

    I really miss diet coke too :-( still it's not forever - and as they say in Hot Fuzz - it's for the greater good :-) x
