    Sometimes it takes your body a while to adjust, if you had a lot of carbs before starting it could just be taking a time to work out, keep it up, honestly it's worth all the pain and I'm sure you'll get a good loss next week. x

    Definitely fingers crossed, get drinking that water, thinking positive and if you think nothing's happening try your old clothes on or measure yourself you'll find things are moving after all!

    Hi

    I only lost 3.5lbs in my first week and I stuck to it 100% :eek:

    However, I have lost 4.5lbs this week so have managed 8lbs in 2 weeks.

    Keep with it...you will get there in the end.

    Just keep going, do it the way you want to.
    My cdc said i could grate a little cheese over one of my soups if i wanted to. I think it was the brocolli flavour.

    You've already lost a lot, and thats great!!

    Good luck

    She told me that i could do it occasionally but to use caution. I think she said the broccoli and cheese soups can be a bit bland (as im still yet to try most of the flavors) and its a tip to get round it, but it would have to be an occasional thing.

    Is there any flavors of shakes and soups you really dont like??
    Curious to know what people thinks are the worst flavors.

    well so far i have disliked the spicy tomato and the oriental chilli, and enjoy eating vegetable, potato and leek only, havnt tasted the rest (it all depends on individuals tastes)
    from day 1 i have had a shake in the morning and soups for luch and dinner (works well for me) cant wait till next week to taste the bars yummy!!!!
