    The Banana diaries

    I didn't really know if it was right to start a diary being a newbie, but my thinking is that it might help me as much as anyone else if I have somewhere to write down how I am getting on each day.

    Day 1 is today. Over the last few weeks I have tried a few days here and there of Exante and managed to stick to them, which I find absolutely amazing since I haven't managed to stick to any kind of diet over the last approx 4 years and have just piled and piled the pounds on. It is such a relief to find something that feels like it will work . I think the massive variety of products is the main reason why.

    I have tried LT previous and could only do a couple of weeks. It is so restrictive and the mere thought of some of the LT shakes makes me want to vomit.

    I am mostly going to be having bars and shakes, just being able to chew something really helps. I don't love the meals but again I love having the variety and the option to have something hot other than a soup so they will come in handy.

    I will post some pics at some point, I have only just joined so still getting to grips with how it all works.

    Would be great to chat to others along the way

    Having a double chocolate bar for breakfast. One thing I really love about the bars is that you don't have to have them all in one go. I have half around 0930 and half a little later on. Just keeps me going a little longer

    Hi bananboo & welcome to the forum. The diary will definitely help you stay on track & accountable to yourself. There are some useful insights on everyones diaries so well worth having a read of some of them.

    I usually take a bar to work with me & nibble at it during stops while travelling from one place to another. It lasts a good few hours that way & I don't end up feeling deprived.

    Hope your day goes well x

    Thanks for saying hello

    It is great advice to read the diaries that is pretty much what I am doing now (as well as working!). They are all very inspirational and it's nice reading about the different motivations and goals people have. More than anything it gives me hope and I haven't feel this motivated for such a long time.

    Hope your day goes well too! x

    Oh thanks good luck to you too!

    Well I managed to get through day 1 woohoo! I just had the shepherds pie for dinner and I really like it. Was a bit reluctant to try it as some people say it's horrible but I thought it was tasty. Well as far as diet food goes anyway ha.

    Spaghetti bols and chilli lush too. I like carbonara, when I make it 'right' but there seems to be less of that? I think that's probably just me n my imagination! X
