    Hi everyone,

    I'm ordering my packs online, a returning VLCDer, have done this type of diet before with LighterLife, tried with Slim n Save too, i think i was more successful with Lighter Life because of the group meetings, but there is no way i can afford how expensive it is again! Jeeeeez it is pricey!

    anyone fancy meeting up once a week or once every two weeks for a chat, some support and sharing how its going in person? Its a fab time of year to meet in parks with our packs and water ;):D

    Hope to hear back from someone, I am determined to do this for myself this time and while i love minimins and reading up how everyone is doing, such a great source of distraction during hunger pangs and motivation......... i feel it would be great for me to add this in the mix, i'm working on being more sociable too. Would be soooo great to talk to people who are doing the same thing, going through similar things and dont judge for doing a TFR diet.

    fingers crossed

    Muchos love to everyone on their journeys

    Tara Mmmmmmmmwah!

    ooo..... p.s. i'm on day 3 today and going strong :) and I have half of my body weight to loose. Addicted to watching Lawrence B's dual dynamic vidoes on youtube, he's a cambridge diet counsellor and is sooo awesome!

    I'd love to join you but by the time I finish work on the days I'm in London I just want to get home to my family. If you ever do lunchtime meet ups though please let me know! (Am actually back on LL after false starts with Exante, Cambridge and SnS!) good luck btw, Tara. If you've got to day three you're almost at the easier bit!!

    I'm subscribing and if you get something organised I can see if it suits. Although I'm kind of insist aiming mode I promise no food talk. Probably going to aim for a couple of 100% weeks before my hols on 7 August anyway.

    When I'm in London I work at King's Cross (used to work in Bastwick St many years ago, just around the corner from Old St!) I love singing too but am without choir at the moment although I'm a COLC alumnus so sometimes sing with them when they need to boost numbers.

    Sing in a choir on a Thursday night. I forget sometimes that Old St is Hackney too. Not around much of next week as back at my Mum and Dads but maybe the week after at lunchtime or after work sometime? Send us a PM with when you are free and let's see what we can do.
  12. Hey guys,

    I'm also a returning VLCD'er. I lost my weight on LL - started at 22st 7, finished at 10st3. Since coming to uni last August I've managed to creep up 2 dress sizes, so back on packs today and signed up to the gym to try shift the majority before start of year 2 in September!

    I'm also interested in meeting up if you guys wanna go ahead. One thing I loved about LL and that kept me on track was the meetings, being able to chat with people in the same position.

    I live in Kingston, but it's pretty easy to get central. :)

  14. Hey guys,

    I'm currently on placement & starting a new part-time job next week. Talk about timing huh! Lol. I'll find out my hours for placement tomorrow, then I need to notify my employer of when I'm available & find out when they want me to start. If you guys go ahead and arrange to meet when suits you, if I can't make it then hopefully I'll be able to meet up with you both in a couple of weeks? :)

    I'm in London next Tuesday and Friday if anyone is around for a coffee at lunchtime near KX?
  17. Clinquant

    Clinquant Gold Member

    I could probably do either of those at the moment, only proviso would be if I had a second interview and Tuesday possibly better than Friday meeting wise but not impossible. Tara are you about then?

    Hope you are both doing OK. I'm in slightly full on crazy mode at the moment trying to finish all my stuff up for work. Only 14 working days to go. I'm away from 7 -12th and not back at work until 18th. Would be really good to meet sometime that week depending on when you are around. Let me know.

    I would love to meet up too, but that's the start of my two-week-and-a-bit break! Maybe we can meet up when I'm back in the office in early September? It was fab meeting you both and I do hope we can do it reasonably regularly. I've had various "epiphanies" in the past couple of weeks so need to update my diary! xx
