    Post my old diary... have started a new one ,,,new start new diary

    Hi everyone
    I just saw the diary page and i thought it might be a good way to keep track of my own weight loss journey.
    I was banded 5 years ago and weighed 21st 7lb..i was desperate and it was a useful tool for a while.
    Jump forward 5 years and i am unbanded due to complications and after finding Exante i thought i would give it a try.
    No point doing any other diet than VCLD as my love affair with f**d would not allow me any success.
    I am 4 days in and have stuck to the rules rigidly ...I have an awful taste in my mouth and no hunger so i am hoping that i have found the elusive Ketosis.. Not sure what that is exactly but have read similar side effects such as bad breath can be a symptom...
    I had a very near meltdown last night which is why i am here writing this.
    I went surfing the net to distract myself and to try and find other Exante users.
    And Woo Hoo i found Minimins!!!
    What an inspirational site for all types of dieters...
    Anyway less waffle..i weighed in at 15st 5lb on tuesday 12th and am going to try my hardest to resist weighing in again till the 19th..
    Good luck and warm wishes to everyone !!

    Hi Valentine

    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

    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

    day 5 nearly over and so far so good..

    Except i have been dragged over to our caravan for the weekend.
    Now all i can smell is BBQ meat cooking from the caravan next door and i have to be honest it is gonna be a long evening i think...

    I have spent most of this afternoon having a good look round this forum and i cant believe what a lovely group of helpful people i stumbled across..especially when i was on day 3 and was close to cracking lol..

    So thank you to all of you that have wished me luck etc ..it really is very much appreciated...

    I grabbed a bottle of zero on the way here so i am sipping it now till i have my last shake of the day....mmmmm think it might have to be choccy made with hot water.... Have only used cold so far..

    I still havent told anyone that i am on Exante not friends or family..Only my fella knows and he is fully supportive as he hates seeing me miserable due to my weight..

    I was wondering how many others on Exante are as secretive about it as i am at the moment..

    I am not ashamed (I am the girl that had the band remember) but i really dont think i could deal with any snide or negative comments until i am a few weeks in and can tell people that the results are good etc etc.

    God.. why is it we go through life feeling S**t about being overweight and then when we do something about it we still stress ourselves out about other peoples attitude towards using a VLCD..

    if i was to say i was at WW or SW nobody would bat an eyelid... Your eating food etc etc but mention the dreaded VLCD it seems that your a loony...generally by the skinnies i might add..lol..

    I just see it as a tool to get to where i want to be and dont want to hear peoples judgemental and uneducated comments..

    Please tell me i am not the only one that feels this way..mind you saying that only a handful of my closest and dearest know i had a band...but that was cos i was sick of explaining it to people as it was a new concept when i had mine done..

    Anyway i think i am going to have a nice black coffee now and have another read of peoples diaries etc to keep my mind off the bbq smell lol...

    Thank you again everyone for making the last few days much more bearable
    xxxx sorry if im venting xxxx

    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
