    Day one and needing lots of support and motivation......

    I've done VLCDs a few times and the most I ever lost was 6 1/2 stone. I've struggled to maintain over the years and had to go back on these diets to get me back on track. But this year has been a bad year and I'm now the heaviest I've ever been.


    I've had a couple of failed attempts. I think this is because I've found it rather soul destroying trying to reach the same old milestones that I've passed many times before.


    But here I am, day one (again) and needing lots of motivation! Fingers crossed ..........

    11/02/14 - 18st 8lb
    14/02/14 - 18st 2.5lb (not 100% so not in ketosis yet) = 5.5 lb
    21/02/14 - 17st11lb (hoped for more due to ketosis) = 5.5 lb
    28/02/14 - 17st 5.5lb = 5.5 lb
    07/03/14 - 17st 1.5lb = 4.0 lb
    14/03/14 - 16st 13lb = 2.5 lb (Perhaps didn't drink enough??)
    21/03/14 - 16st 8.5lb = 4.5 lb
    28/03/14 - 16st 5.0 lb = 3.5 lb
    04/04/14 - 16st 2.5 lb = 2.5 lb

    total so far = 2st 5.5 lb

    Goal 1 = Get into ketosis! (Done 21/2)
    Goal 2 = Get into 16's (stones, sadly not clothes) (Done 14/3)
    Goal 3 = Monthly challenge: 14lb in 4 weeks from 14/3....
    Goal 4 = 15 stone by 10th May (holiday and friend's wedding)

    Good Luck Allie, I've found tv box sets are my saviour - I wrap myself up in a blanket in bed and get lost in hours of tv. By being upstairs I'm also well away from the fridge!

    Hi Allie. Good luck with your journey. I find that having a diary and following everyone else's not only holds me to account but also motivates me and inspires me. Everyone is very supportive. I spent a lot of time just reading through people's diaries when I first started. It stopped me eating and inspired me at the same time!

    Hi Lynne,

    Thank you for that! I broke yesterday (ate a small rebellious bowl of cereal). It didn't help that I was using old packs that I had left over, and not particularly ones that I fancied. I got my new delivery yesterday so have started with more conviction today.

    I just have lacked the determination one needs to get into ketosis.

    But I agree it's really nice having access to other people who are going through it too!

    I suspect I have lost some weight (because I haven't eaten a lot of calories), but weigh day is Friday (hopefully I'll actually have got myself into ketosis by then)!

    :-)

    Keep at it

    Believe me, I know how hard it is - but starting and stopping just prolongs the agony

    .....get past the first 3-4 days, then it gets MUCH easier

    Start a diary - really great for keeping yourself accountable

    ....and read other diaries for motivation and support

    I've been TS 100% since January 1st, and no way could I have done it without the support of the others here - and using my diary for rambling on when I've been tempted by the food demons

    I've done it before, so I can do it again. In 3 days time I WILL be in ketosis!! Thanks again xxx




    11/02/14 - 18st 8lb
    14/02/14 - 18st 2.5lb (not 100% so not in ketosis yet) = 5.5 lb
    21/02/14 - 17st11lb (hoped for more due to ketosis) = 5.5 lb
    28/02/14 - 17st 5.5lb = 5.5 lb
    07/03/14 - 17st 1.5lb = 4.0 lb
    14/03/14 - 16st 13lb = 2.5 lb (Perhaps didn't drink enough??)
    21/03/14 - 16st 8.5lb = 4.5 lb
    28/03/14 - 16st 5.0 lb = 3.5 lb
    04/04/14 - 16st 2.5 lb = 2.5 lb

    total so far = 2st 5.5 lb

    Goal 1 = Get into ketosis! (Done 21/2)
    Goal 2 = Get into 16's (stones, sadly not clothes) (Done 14/3)
    Goal 3 = Monthly challenge: 14lb in 4 weeks from 14/3....
    Goal 4 = 15 stone by 10th May (holiday and friend's wedding)
