Post-Christmas, Post Birthday -- the excuses are running out. A fresh start on Exante
Hi Everybody. It's good to be back on the forums.
As an ex-LighterLifer who spectacularly fell off the wagon to the tune of three stones, I'm hoping for a new me in the new year and a fresh start with Exante. Some of you will remember from my previous posts that I'm a guy in my twenties with Cerebral Palsy. For obvious reasons, I'm not very 'active' in a sports sense, but do need to lose weight to maximise the mobility that I do have.
I found that with living in London and haemorrhaging money on rent, I also couldn't keep up with LighterLife from a financial point of view. So, I was very excited to discover Exante, which as most of us know, is quite a bit cheaper.
I've ordered and had my first bumper pack delivered, and got started this morning. I weighed in at 16st 8lbs, and am hoping to see a big loss next week. I've found (from my extensive dieting history) that I have a will of iron for a good few weeks (let's say up to 10) and then something absolutely tiny will tip me off the bandwagon with disastrous results.
On LighterLife, I got down from 16st 10lbs to about 13st 10lbs in about 12 weeks, but as I am quite small framed, my ideal weight is actually round about 11st -- I still had a fair way to go. I'm hoping I can do it this time, with support from everyone on here.... It really does help. I'm currently off work recovering from fractures after a fall, so I have 8 weeks to sit around and watch the weight come off (hopefully).
I just have a couple of questions:
1. Does anybody on Total Solution bother with the food/milk as instructed on the Low Calorie Week?
2. How do I get a weight loss ticker set up?
3. When others have posted on my thread and I want to provide an update do I reply to last post? Or do I do something different?
Thanks to all, and keep losing! :D
Slight panic! (And big disappointment)
Just a quick post looking for some advice. And some calming responses :-)
Right. So. I'm a weigh-myself-every-day kind of chap, and I was stunned and APPALLED to see my weight increase after my initial loss. I know my second week isn't up yet, but this is more than mildly disconcerting, especially as I always had good losses on my second week in LL. I am drinking water practically by the gallon, and I feel I've stalled. Is this normal? HELP!!
All the best
