    My first week was almost as easy as the second. No headaches, just felt a little faint a couple of times. My flask of herbal tea and water keep me going mainly.

    I wish you all the luck and hope your first week passes with as much ease as possible x

    aww happy bdayy hun!! :d
    yh the vanilla is kinda relii milkyy the choc one is slightly better...the veg soup is quite nyc and realyl filling espec if you put the soup in a cup then a bowl...:D
    and use a spoon so it kinda makes you think you are eating something rather then drinking the soup hun :d

    I cook my soup in a pan and add herbs and spices to make it feel like a meal. Really works for me :)

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!!!

    What a present to yourself. A promise to be the weight you want to be. Imagine what next years birthday will be like!:)

    There's a sticky that tells you what each pack tastes like. But it's a very personal thing. I had the soups every evening in my first week with no probs. Then just the thought of them made me want to hurl. I really stressed for 2 days at the thought of having to have them as I'd bought the bumper variety pack. Then I thought 'sod it' I'm not suffering by having something I don't like and ordered a bumper pack of shakes only. I'm much happier for making that decision.

    Happy Birthday !!!:birthday::bday:
    And like you and Isis both said.. what an amazing birthday pressie knowing that next year you will be the you .. you want to be.. phew lots 'yous' there hehe

    Good luck on this, the very first step of your journey ... fingers crossed that you will sail through your first week.. but try not to be down hearted if you don't.. a few of us had toughies.. and yuck days those first seven. I promise it does get easier, and this little group is so so important in getting each other through those times.. Good and bad! Giggles or Rant!

    It is sooo exciting though!! Imagine this time next year!

    I still get all jiggly opening my space packs.. I think its the magpie in me.. 'oohh shiny!'
    I have to say I was a little nervous of trying the different flavours for the first time, but hand on heart none are horrid. :sign0137:Using tips like adding spices herbs and coffee etc really is a great way of pepping them up.. and I am sure a lot of people will offer you some tips.. there is a thread on making the packs mmmm but no one loves it :( sob sob hehe

    Good luck today!!!

    xxxx
