    I just had to start a new thread to tell the world that in 8 days I have lost a staggering 16lbs and 3" from my bust, waist and hips.

    I cannot believe it!!!!

    The downs have been all worthwhile.. but all your advice and support when I had those downs helped so much to lose this amount. I just need to remember that I'm never going to have another weight loss like it, and not be disheartened next week when it isn't as much.

    Thanks ladies.. I think it may have something to do with putting 5lbs on in the week before I started (I stuffed myself knowing I was doing starting last Wednesday), and about another 5lbs in the few weeks before that. With it being fresh weight, its probably come off easier.

    Lass321 - its called Lighter Life. You have 4 replacement foodpacks a day which contain approx 500 cals, drink plenty of water and are able to drink teas and black coffee.

    It has been quite difficult at times this week, and at points felt like giving up but I'm so glad I didn't!!

    Thanks again,
    C xx

    Thanks ladies.. I couldn't sleep last night because of the shock! I have to admit I led there thinking "this isn't healthy" and praying I don't collaspe or something silly.

    I really cannot believe it... going from 17.9lbs to 16.7lbs in a week is just amazing. I really do think its because it was fresh weight.. it was only May that I last saw this weight, so I put a lot on in the run up to it... 10lbs in the previous 3 to 4 weeks I'd say.. and 5lbs of that in the week before!!

    Well done everyone else.. this diet is almost a miracle but bloody hard work so everyone should be really proud of themselves for committing to it and losing.

    Good stuff! First weeks are 'big' because your body is mainly getting rid of the excess water it's accumulated during your 'eating' times. As it's losing that it's also getting rid of glycogen, a substance that's there to preserve energy from the sugars (carbs) you consume. Once that is gone you'll start burning your own fat ( ketosis )
    GOOD TIMES!!! :D

    I hope next week is a good amount too.. I've definitely been in ketosis since day 3 as I bought ketostix to check. I actually think I went into ketosis from day 1 as my hands were freezing, my mouth foul and had absolutely no hunger at all. I've been really lucky in that respect because since starting, the only time I've had real hunger pangs is just before I fall asleep and usually a mouthful of water gets rid of it!!

    I bet you are, this diet is amazing. It's literally life changing and the best thing I've ever done (althought he first time round was soooooo much easier!).

    I still look at all my pics and think WOW, but my daughter was worth every extra lb that will now fall off before my very eyes :D
