    I don't want to stand on anyone's toes.

    But can I join you? I had a starter pack of Shake that Weight and didn't find it very good. I bought a tin of SF and I'm getting on with that much better. I'm not sole support, I have SF, made into a mousse with gelatine, and maybe a piece of toast for breakfast, meal bar for lunch and a low fat meal in the evening. And another shake made with warm milk to go to bed. I've not been on it a week and lost 4lbs.
    I'm a slowly does it dieter this time around and intend to keep the weight off when I lose it. I know I sound a bit half hearted about the way I am using SF and will understand if you don't want me

    Welcome!!
    This board is a bit quiet but there are a few of us doing SF. If your approach is working, then stick to it! As long as you are having at least 1200 calories a day, as any less than that is not good for you - unless you're doing a VLCD such as Cambridge etc.

    I've used SF in the past and kept the weight off until I needed medication and I've just ballooned! I'm hoping to lose a stone by Christmas!

    Keep us updated with how you're getting on!

    You are more than welcome round here The more the merrier!!

    Looks like the diet is working well so far, and if it is working stick with it. As Andrea said, make sure you are having your 1200 calories, and if it's more you can always lower it as the weight loss begins to slow

    Keep us in the loop with your progress xx

    This evening we have to go to a charity antiques auction. There will be a Buffet and bar. That's better than a sit down 'do' isn't it? I shall have a shake before I go, so that I don't get there feeling a could eat a horse between two bread vans. I'll have a healthy pick at the buffet... bit of chicken and stick to one glass of wine, or low cal mixer. I'm not a big drinker so won't be tempted.

    Thanks Tink, I did and it was delicious. Yes, we had a good time. Our daughter died in 2010 aged 32. She was autistic and epileptic and we had been her carers for all those years. The auction was to raise funds to research sudden death in epilepsy.We got a German lava vase dirt cheap, but lost out on a sliver card case

    The problem with autism is, that they look OK. Our daughter was beautiful with a figure to die for, but deeply autistic. One day we were coming home from a walk (she loved walking) and she was a little ahead of me and holding my husband's hand. I heard someone say... 'Look at that! he's old enough to be her father. Dirty old man'

    It is hard - my niece is coming up to 16 - she also has some other issues, so can not talk, which makes things very complicated. My brother is beginning to struggle more now as she is a grown woman, but also requires the support that a younger child would need! Some times it is tough, and it is often others comments which can cut deep, but you just have to ignore them and get on with looking after those important to you!!

    Makes weight loss less of a challenge when you think of the bigger picture sometimes xx
