welcome welcome welcome, I only started last weekend but the results have been pretty awesome... erm, I obviously couldnt resist the lure of the scales or I wouldnt know I had lost 7lb already!
I started on Tuesday 12th too. Or I should say re-started. I did Exante almost a year ago and it converted me totally to VLCD's. I lost the weight - or most of it - that I wanted to lose but nearly a year has gone by blah, blah, blah and here I am again.
But that's just me. I know I'm just one of those people that will have to do this occasionally before things get totally out of hand. I am not a natural maintainer cos I love my food too much but if I can reduce quickly with a blast of Exante then that seems to suit me. But I so need to be in the right head space. It's taken me 5 months to get into the headspace I need to do this!
So sorry the gastric band didn't work out for you. Will look forward to hearing your progress. I am at the stage of wanting to eat the furniture... But I know it'll pass.
Hiya sorus and jo jo
thanks for ya comments..I love this site its so helpful.
TBH the band did work for me as it got me out of the wilderness of morbid obesity and sorted my dangerous blood pressure..But in the long term i just had an unlucky complication but it got me over the first hurdle..
Now is time for Exante..may the journey be not too bumpy lol xxxx
Welcome guys and good luck on exante get passed the first few days and you will be feeling great. This site is brilliant I could not do exante without it, even if I don't post a lot I'm always reading it
Hi! I'm also on day 4, well done for getting this far! Don't think I'm in ketosis yet as am still starving and, so far as I can tell, my breath it ok! Bring on the halitosis though.....
Jojo-p, I sneaked a peek today too and have lost 6lb , hurray for VLCDs!
the scales are now in the boot of my car as i nearly stood on them this afternoon...they were calling me from the bathroom!!! so i havent cracked yet lo.. suspense will be killing me by Monday though...but i am really gonna try and be strong..
great you have done so well though...both of you sneeky peepers!! lol xx
Welcome and good luck
i just noticed i had put the wrong start date on my details ...lol..i put march instead of april...just edited it..i must have been havin a real manic moment when i joined the site lmao xx
Well the weekend is here.. A real danger spot for me as i am a sociable creature who is normally out every friday and or saturday...
I took precautions and told all my friends that i will be off the party scene for the forseeable future as i was going on a diet..
Day 5 has arrived and i am definately in Ketosis as my mouth felt like a sewer when i woke up..Dont think i have every had a mouth like it even after a heavy night on the alcohol..
But Yippee!!!! still no hunger and not a sign of a headache...
I was wondering what the Boullion (dont even know if i spelt it right lol) thing is as i have all shakes so something savoury soon might be nice..Also if someone could tell me where i would find it ? supermarket etc? would be really helpful.
Still havent cracked and jumped on the scales which is amazing cos i really am an addict to the scales even on normal days.. Think that was due to my fear of putting on weight after my band was removed..as i had done quite well with it and didnt want to go backwards.
Anyway i am still feeling very positive that i might have just cracked the first week of TS ...
I dont know if it is a change in diet etc but i do feel very emotional today and its defo not TOTM for me...Coincidence or has anyone else had this in their first week? please let me know xx
Vent away hun, that's what ur diarys for hope you manage to get over the BBQ smells it's torture eh?
How much weight are u wanting to lose with exante?
I was sooooo close to getting the band fitted this time last year. I went for 2 consultations and sorted the loan to pay for it then my dad asked me not too. I'm glad he did tho coz I've read loads of bad things after having it.
Anyway I'm rambling now have a super weekend xx
thankyou clair i made it through the BBQ smell lol!!!!
its Day 6 and i an starting to feel quite normal...
Am still at the van till tomorrow morning so i am glad i bought enough packs with me
I only bought enough in the begining to last 2 weeks...
Did not want to waste money if i felt i could not stick with it. but i feel great and totally focused...
so have just ordered a months bumper pack woo hoo!!
i ordered the mixed one so i hope i like the soups and bars as much as the shakes...
I have been reading other peoples advice on here about spices etc for the soups so i think i should be ok..
where do i get the boullion stock stuff??? keep seeing it in peoples posts but have never heard of it before.
Anyway so far so good i just hope i feel like this in another weeks time.
Cant wait to weigh myself on tuesday..the suspense is absolutely killing me as i "feel" thinner if that makes sense lol xxxx
You can get it in supermarkets - tends to be the bigger shops. In among the stock cubes and gravy. The one I use is in a purple tin with an orange lid - Marigold Bouillion.
Well done on getting to day 6 and good luck for first WI
well done on making it as far as you have, i also was at the caravan this weekend and had bbqs all around, was so hard, especially as yesterday was day one for me lol
I got Bouillion in Asda think it was about £1.40, it doesnt taste too bad, it makes a nice change
