    day 1: started off ok. Am feeling unusually scared for some reason. I think because I want to lose this weight so badly and I'm scared it will all go wrong. Must think positive!

    Had 1 litre of water already, along with a choc tetra. Am not looking forward today, but at least I'm out doing home visits this afternoon (I'm a social worker) which should keep my mind off things. Will have to keep refusing the drinks and cakes people try to give me!

    Wishing you all happy, positive thoughts. Wish me luck on my road to ketosis!

    Well done on getting to the end of Day 1! I could have written your first post myself, I was terrified when I first started I think for similar reasons. Don't be afraid, believe in yourself, you can do it.

    well WI went well, I'm 6lbs down after only 5 days on the diet so really pleased with that! Also it totm so think I did good!

    Feeling quite down though and not quiet sure why, got a stinking headache, hubby is in Amsterdam and I got lots on with work and a 6 month old alone for 3 days.. oh wait I know why I'm feeling down! Must keep telling myself I must do this diet, it works, its quick and I deserve it!

    hoping for a better day tomorrow, Hubby comes home after all!

    hope you are all well and thanks Vic for the enthusiasm! it helps a lot

    well it's day 14 tomorrow and my 2nd weigh in. I'm feeling really down and wanting to eat something, anything!! I have been having chicken and green veg or salad most evenings this week but it just doesn't seem to be satisfying my food cravings. I've been thinking about WW or SW or even atkins, anything that allows me to eat but I know deep down those diets last a few weeks, lose a few pounds and then back to square one. I've started this now and I really want to lose around 3 stone but just not sure I can make it. Help! :(

    thanks MsJMC - well WI today and 5lb lost, I'm pretty pleased with that and know that on any other diet I would have stayed the same or even put on this week!

    Head down now and time to get back on track with a positive mental attitude!!! Also got bars now yum yum

    Happy slimming all
