thank you for your reply. I didnt manage to do the face pack last night as I realised I had no money or petrol and couldnt find my switch card so was searching for ages and still didnt find it.So OH ended up getting me money out and putting petrol in my car by the time we were sorted it was 11pm so we went to bed.Should get some me time this afternoon. ill have a look out for the sleep therapy bubble bath although if I sleep any more there will be no day left lol.I am sleeping so much better than I have for a long time and feel more rested when I wake up its great .
Wow I am on day 20 almost three weeks since I last ate conventional food.
Cant say I havent been tempted but i have resisted.Feel really proud of myself.Weigh in tonight so feeling a little aprehensive.
I have been worrying last night.
I am due to go in for an operation on 24th June.I was worried whether I will have to stop LL before my op and after to help recovery.
I have a pre op assessment on 20th so will ask then but was wondering if anyone can tell me if they have had an op whilst on LL and what their experience was.
I will be having a Laparoscopy to remove my ovaries and seperate adhesions.If all goes well I will be in overnight.If there are any complications it may be an open wound which would require a few days in hospital.
I keep having nightmares that they make me eat two rounds of toast post op even though I keep telling them I dont eat bread lol.
Any advice would be usefull.
Kind regards Cathy

Well done Cathy!!
Well done hun, good luck whilst you are on holiday!
As for the op, discuss it with your surgeon prior to the op, will you need to be on conventinla food whilst you recover, if so I wouldnt worry too much about the toast. If you are plannoing on going straight back to packs and the only conventional food you will have is the toast, explain you are unable to eat bread and ask what te options are, could you take something in with you? Just a thought, not sure you can even do that nowadays lol so many rules etc. xx

It shouldnt be a problem taking my own food in might even take the porridge and ask for hot water.
Three days in work then a whole seven days just me and OH having some well deserved time relaxing.
Well done cathy! x hope ur op goes ok xx
The last two days have been difficult.
My sons ex got taken into hospital so the two littleones needed looking after.Plus the her new baby 8 days old.
I have been trying to support my son who works night shift.So with juggling my own job I have been collecting and dropping off children.
The baby is now with his mum in hospital as it was too much responsibilty looking after a little on as well as my own two grandsons.I have been cooking and looking after them in between going to work and running a small business i have hardly had anything to drink and almost ate chocolate today, but resisted.
The youngest is only 20 months so still a baby really he was upset at 1am this morning and wanted his daddy. We managed to settle him in our bed and he slept welluntill 6am.Needless to say neither myself or hubby slept.I was in work at 10am so dropped the 5 year old off at schhol came home did some washing.Changed the 20 month old then had to wake my son up to look after him so I could go to work.I am shattered but managed to get the afternoon off.So home now with youngest grandson just did his dinner and it smelt so nice.But resisted lol.
I need to up my drinking as only managing abiut 1 and a half litres.Off to school at 3pm and have promised a Mcdonalds to my grandson for being so good.
Hope to get a good night sleep tonight.
Hope the lack of water doesnt effect my weight loss too much.
Sorry for the long post hope everyone is ok.

Aw hun, you got a lot on your plate, water will defo make a difference. I upped mine this week as my losses havent been to good, lost 3lb and its my totm so convinced the water is the key.
Hope your sons partner recovers soon.
McD's ...ummmm lol xxx
Oh dear what a busy lady you have been, I know its the last thing on your mind at the minute but keep the water going. Well done for resisiting the temptations, you can do this... xxx
Im back from a lovely relaxing break.
The good news is I managed to stick to LL total well almost.
When we arrived on the other side of the water OH was looking for a particular bag which had Euros in for Motorway tolls,but he couldnt find the bag ........it then dawnwed on him it was the last bag to go in the car but it didnt get put in!!!!.Trying to think what else was in the bag and he realised my LL supplies for the week were in it.At first I was annoyed but then decided it wouldnt spoil my week and I would be good.So evening meal was planned a chicken fillet with salad.
Later that evening whilst unpacking I came across the bag and yes all my supplies were there.I was really pleased as I was not sure whether I could have resisted all the temptations.
So disaster avoided and the rest of the week worked very well.I had a bar at lunchtime whilst my OH had a light lunch out and in the evening i had a savoury paket whilst OH tucked into a home made dinner. The food smelled lovely but I kept thinking of where i want to be.
I feel really good that I have resisted and stayed abstinent.
My weigh in is on tuesday so hoping its a good one as not been weighed for two weeks.We did lots of walking every day and on Friday I had a lovely spa day .
hope you are all keeping well I will catch up on your diaries this weekend.
Well done for keeping to plan whilst away. Well deserved break after the crisis management of the days before.
Keep up the good work xx
i wouldnt have got this far without the encouragement from all you lovely ladies when i was feeling so low in the begining.
So a BIG thank you to you all.
Well I decided to measure myself this morning,my clothes are feeling looser.
I was really amazed at the inch loss in just under 5 weeks.
bust.....loss 3.5 inches
waist....loss 4.5 inches
I love this diet.
Onwards and downwards.
Whey hey ... the incredible shrinking woman lol
