I'm new to exante, having successfully lost quite a bit on Cambridge about 6 yrs ago, I feel experienced in what to expect with this vlcd. I've been crap in the interim, plus had two children, so my weight is back up and now my priority.
My partner's really supportive, and has been reading some great stuff on kick starting your morning metabolism by drinking 1 of your 3L of water first thing in the morning, as 3 large glasses before I leave for work, so I'm hoping this might help get me off to a good start.
I've got some short and long term goals which I'll add as my signature once I've posted enough :-)
in the meantime, they're just:
Goal 1: get through a week
goal 2: lose half a stone
goal 3:get through 4 wks
Goal 4: lose a stone
goal 5: see the 12s
Starting weight 14st1lb I think. Last weighed last week and can't weigh until tomorrow so will update if different.
Wish me luck, I'll be on here for some support :-)))
Welcome and good on you for setting goals.
I'm sure it will certainly be helpful your experience from Cambridge and I hope that you get some good losses soon!
Hay I'm re starting tomorrow as well got a lot to lose. Wanna go back to my pre pregnancy weight 8st 7lbs don't mind 9st good luck for tomorrow xxxx
Hello!! Also starting (again) tomorrow... Official weigh in in the morning but I think I'm about 14st, maybe high 13s if I'm lucky!
Want to get down to under 11st really.

Lauren I lost nearly 6 stone on LL before too! Started exante today.
Hi Guys I'm on day 5 similar story lost 4 stone a few years ago on cambridge, became a counsellor and now im at my heaviest with all my weight back on plus half stone! we can do it :grouphugg:
At least we know what to expect!
might join your thread if that's ok as the board can be a bit quiet at times?
Keep going all of us!
Striver come on in, all welcome - I too prefer to pick up a thread where I know people are at a similar point :-))
so, so far now I'm on day 5 and see if any of this sounds familiar to yourselves:
1. Glad I did the shakes/bars bumper
2. Headache/feeling a bit under the weather is I think worse than I remember from wk 1 of Cambridge last time, but it could be age!
3. Finding it ok to stick to, I've had a couple of pieces of medallion bacon (no carbs, 65k protein) on 2 mornings as I just felt downright awful. This for me through.
4. Weigh in yesterday at the start of day 4 and I'd dropped from 14.0 to 13.6 3/4 (WW scales v accurate) so I am thrilled! Really motivated me to aim for 9-10lb for the week :-)))
5. I'm having a high protein meal of green pork chill tonight as I want to have some sort of social eating with my lovely OH :-)
how ow about everyone else then? Any nuggets you fancy sharing?
Not chicken nuggets lol!!!
i am keeping motivated and planning on incorporating a no carb meal in on one day of the weekend to keep me focused.
Hi Purple girl hope you are going strong. Sending positive thoughts x
Hi all! yes going ok thanks. I too am glad I didn't get the soups - yuck!! Only thing I don't like so far is the Berry Bar... but will survive!
Had dreadful headaches d2-d3, but I think ketosis has kicked in now and I don't feel toooo hungry.
Had a period on day 3 when I felt simply awful, realised I hadn't had anything for 17 hours. Had my shake then 3 hours later a bar but still felt awful, had to have another bar... Felt a bit bad but better than caving to non-exante food I suppose.
Am also drinking 1 can of coke zero on most days as a treat, beats the monotony of water!
Sneaky peak at the scales shows have gone from 13st 12.8lbs to 13.8lbs in 4 days! Very happy with that. And it might be psychological but my clothes do feel looser.
On night shifts all this week which is a challenge, so much naughty food around! Just. Say. No!!
Keep going everybody,
how is it going purplegirl? following your diary :-)
