    Well no-one else has yet, so here goes...

    I have my first group tonight, so will be starting on packs tomorrow. I'll put all my shameful vital statistics on tomorrow night. I'm feeling really excited, but really nervous too. So if there's anyone else starting now, please join me!

    I'm easily drinking 3 litres of just water, anything else is on top. 1 x coffee in the morning, peppermint tea and water through the day and water flavours in fizzy water in the evening. For a change! I'm guessing the headache is the carb/sugar withdrawal? Though it could be my 2 kids being bored and rowdy! :grumble: Being awake at stupid o'clock every morning also doesn't help :\ But still very motivated :D

    Hi Ive got a terrible headache today too - think its carb withdrawl & im with you on the bored kids my 3 were very trying today!!
    Getting the water down is still hard - will try fizzy water with flavour - sounds good.
    Keep up the good work:D

    Hi guys, just a word of warning. Keep your eye on the fizzy water, check the lables on the bottles for sodium (salt) content. Some of them are really high and you can actually taste the salt. My LLC said it may not be very good if you are prone to water retention, or not drinking enough "normal" water.

    awww bless you i do feel for you having been here before and trying to start again! yeah have to say its still early days for me, im finding it easier than i thought, although i had such a strong urge / desire to eat proper food today but i didnt! i wish there were a few more differnt flavours available. I will do this but i know its gonna get harder not easier for me :(
