    Thanks very much! Still a long way to go but need to keep coming on here to get encouragement to keep going!

    When I started this diet I made sure I told everyone what I was doing. Because it is such a strict regime lots of people had their bit to say about it! That made me want to prove them wrong and the times when I have felt like giving in to food have been cancelled out by not wanting to be a failure in their eyes.

    I have also told myself that this hard but won't be forever. I know I should roughly loose a stone a month so in my head I have a realistic picture of when it will end - you don't get that on weight watchers!!

    One day at a time - take the good with the bad and the end result will be brilliant for all of us!

    So right! I've had a stab at WW about 20 times over the last 4 years, and still here I am a stone heavier than when I began..... Not because WW doesn't work but purely because you get so frustrated with the half pound off, then 1 pound on and so on!
    And to think you struggle that whole month to lose the sought after max loss of 8lbs!
    You can get that in a week with VLCD!
    Prove the non believers wrong..... You'll find they all have summit to say, even if they've never heard of it before lol
    Good for you x

    wow this is a great picture, you can see the big difference, I dont think you will roughly lose a stone a month, i think on the CD you should be a little more audacious, for instance im purely just on soul source and can honestly say i want to lose 3 stone in 2 months, i started at 17 stone and want to be 14 before the beginning of december, if halfway through i think im going to make it, then i go running, go to the gym or something. I think you are much more capable or losing more weight, and whilst its hard you should go for it now!

    Thanks for all the words of encouragement everyone! It makes such a massive difference to read your positive comments. I am officially in my fourth week now and can't believe I have lasted this long!

    Nazz I struggled so much in my first week and wanted to give up by the end of it! I kept coming on here though and reading people saying how much easier it got. I put my faith in that and I can tell you they are right! It is now a way of life and doesn't seem as much of a battle. I'm not saying there aren't moments when I want to eat what everyone else is but those times soon pass and the buzz of getting weighed soon becomes your new addiction. Keep at it and you won't regret it!!

    Have a good day everyone!! X

    Thanks for that. Im defo gonna stick to it coz i need to lose this weight.. Im leaving my shakes til afternoon times so there are not sooo spaced out and jus drinking tea and water in the morning. I tried freezin the mango shake yeaterday it was awful n not like icecream. Maybe the readymade shakes will turn out like icecream well iv heard it does.. Im so determined now so im not going to give up.. I hav to hide the scales aswell because i so do not want to weigh myslf every mornin coz i would do that lol.. Do u do ss or ss+? X

    Hi dancing! I think it's worth keeping a regular photo diary as sometimes you feel like you just aren't losing any!! It is good to look back and see that the hard work really is paying off! Good luck with your journey!

    Hi nazz! Good to here you are so determined. Just keep telling yourself this hard work won't be forever!!

    I do a mixture of SS and SS+. Some days I just have the shakes but when I'm at work I take some chicken and green salad so people don't pile too many questions on me!

    I feel it is working well so far. Not having a weigh in this week as have decided to have it every two weeks so I can see bigger chunks come off! I must admit I do weigh myself most days just to confirm I am going in the right direction!

    Hope your day is going well x

    Hi nazz! You just do whatever works best for you. Half way through your first week - well done! I hated my first week but now it just seems like a way of life! I now have to remind myself to have my shakes as I have no hunger at all!

    Have just done my weekly shop for the family and am going to cook them some lovely meals this weekend! Didn't feel strong enough before so my husband has done everything but now I feel I can face it. The changes in my body shape are better than any food!

    Carry on staying strong and weigh in day will be here before you know it! X
