Well guys one week down and 8 lb down also - yay me!!!!! I know it will go back drastically now but that's all right; I am back in the driving seat after so many months of wandering aimlessly in weight-gain land. I hope everyone else is having a good day, take care all.
Hi, lovely of you to pop in Katierose! Yes I'm using Dietimeals just now because they are cheaper than All About W8. I lost 3 stone on AAW8 last year and then put back on a stone and a half over the last 6 months. I am now at the end of week 1 and have lost 8 lb so far. On my first week with AAW8 I lost 6 lb so it compares favourably. I use water rather than milk for the Dietimeal porridge and shakes to keep the calories and carbs down, so I think it is a similar plan to AAW8, just cheaper. What plan are you on?

Your doing really well how much more do you want to lose.
Heaviest Weight : 23.0
Starting Weight : 18.7 January 13th 2014 Restart:
week 1:-18.0 -7 Pounds
Feb 22nd : 17.7 -14 Pounds in total
March 1st : 17.6
I have 4 stone to lose in total to get to goal. I have 1 stone to get back to where I was in February and then I'll plug away at the other 3 stone. I may stop earlier because I will be at a healthy BMi after the first 3 stone I think, but I fancy dropping the final stone just to see if I can fit into the clothes I wore at Uni. I still have a couple of pairs of jeans I keep for nostalgic reasons lol!
Well - half way to my restart mini goal now - yay me!!!! From Monday I'm going to have some real food - gradually introduce it during the week - then I have a weekend away and will be eating and drinking a bit. Following week straight back on plan for another 3 weeks. I think for me that this will be more manageable than just going for it hell for leather. If I felt the reduced hunger that other people say they get on a vlcd I would probably just keep going till I was at or close to goal - but I think I'll go mad if I don't know I can feel full at least a few days a month! Thank heavens I'm losing weight steadily, maybe not as fast as some others but a half lb bit every 2 or 3 days keeps me motivated.
Great Lass, glad you are feeling much better about tackling things again.
I am now back on track today and feeling much better in myself.
Funny how the mind seems to switch off and no matter what it doesn't want to switch back on again... very frustrating.
Keep it up and well done! ....

Thanks Emmaline - and I'm glad you're feeling more like the thing too! We may not be the two fasted at losing weight - but at least we have staying power lol. take care.
Well only 1 and a half lb this week. Not much from a vlcd, but at least it is in the right direction. I have started a modified add a meal week, partly because I just want to have semi-normal food for at least some of the month, but mainly because I'm interested to see how much more I would weigh if I was eating a 'normal' amount of carbs. As I do not intend staying low carb, I need to know how much below target I need to get to settle at target when I resume eating carbs. I know I have months until I really need to worry about this - but I do like to be prepared. I'm on the spectrum so I know enough about myself that this will worry me if I don't deal with it now. So my AAM week will be: yesterday I replaced my final shake with a cup of options hot chocolate. Very yummy! Today I replaced my breakfast porridge mealpack with an Oats so simple porridge sachet, even more yummy and has kept me fairly full all day, and will have my hot choccy again in a couple of hours. Tomorrow as well as those two replacements, I will replace my evening mealpack with a weightwatcher's frozen meal and the next day will have the same but also replace my lunch vlcd soup pack with a cup-a-soup. By then I should be able to see how much weight goes on with carbs, which I know is water-weight. I am taking a multi-vit to make sure I keep healthy with what is I know quite a low-calorie few days, and with the vits from the mealpacks it could be dodgy. This weekend I have a course which will be punctuated by yummy rich food. I will try to make as healthy a choice as I can, but I will enjoy the 'normal' eating and not having to think 'diet'. I refuse to feel guilty about what I eat - or drink this weekend, so if I start moaning on Monday how I have wrecked my diet please remind me that it is NOT wrecked. I made the decision to come off for a few days. I made it knowing it would mean a gain, and to stop moaning and just get on with the rest of my weightloss journey!
I hope everyone is having a great week.
Not sure where the last 8 months have gone - apart from on my hips that is! I am blaming a combination of things - Mum being ill, work being tougher than usual and trying to finish my degree. Now Mum is better, I have a lovely (if chatty) class and I have completed my degree. Having no excuses left I guess I better get going .
Well done that's great
