    Hi everyone! Just found this forum and wanted to document my journey to give me a boost!
    Sooo I've had two children and my current baby is almost 5 months old. I used to be really slim in my 20s (approx 8 stone) and the i got a new job and had children and now I am at my heaviest for my adult life!
    I have decided to do Exante total solution because I know i shouldn't feel this way about the way i look and need to do something about it. i tried other ways but to remove food totally seems to be the best option to stop me cheating!!
    I've got a holiday in May and june when il need to wear a swimming costume. Now my friends wear bikinis- i don't do that- and i want to!
    i want to stop buying huge sizes so they are baggy over my stomach. I HATE IT!! i want to wear a vest top without layering it up so you can't see my post baby stomach flapping about!!I want to wear tops that don't cover my flappy arms!!

    So here is what I'm aiming for
    START WEIGHT at 5 FEB 2014 - 10st 10LB
    GOAL WEIGHT 8st 7LB

    Method- Exante total solution
    Weigh in days are every Wed morning! xxxxx

    Hello! Not bad thanks coming to end of day 4! Found Today a lot easier actually. Had much more energy. Cleaned the whole flat and looked after my 4 1/2 month old baby girl! Haven't really had hunger problems either, was only late evening when I was due my last shake. My fiancé had takeaway pizza for dinner so I left him and escaped with my shake to the bath! It just wasn't worth me sitting there! It's my favourite food too! I'm looking forward to weigh in day. I hope I'm not disappointed . Ideally id like a 7lb loss to kick me off. I do hope this happens! My partner said he thought my skin looked really healthy and I just generally looked well so that's made me happy :) xx

    Hi. You're doing great. Hope your first weigh in is a good one. I've just returned after a week off track so unfortunately have to get through the dreaded first 3 days yet again!

    Aw good luck with everything ! I know, I'm dreading certain days I need to come off the diet for special occasions!! I'm going shopping with my friends in a couple of weeks like a day out but I'm still going to abstain I think as I can cope with water while they eat! But a friends birthday at a restaurant I don't feel I can!!!I know my problem too at the moment is not drinking enough water. I need to drink minimum of 2 litres a day I've got to force myself! Xx

    I find it really difficult to drink enough water at this time of year. I'm fine when the weather is warm or hot but really struggle when it's cold, wet and dark!

    Ah bless u!! I know that feeling!! there was an offer on the food packs and I needed more so Ive bought those and also some orange water flavouring! Hoping that would help! They sent me white wine and elderflower free last time and just dont fancy that! I'm so tempted to jump in the scales all the time it's terrible . So tempted to see if I've lost anything but I know that it's no good to do that and I should wait till Wednesday!! Agh! I'm also scared I won't loose as much as I hope and be disheartened . I'd like to think I could loose 2 1/2 stone in 8-12 weeks on this! I also hope my key areas would go my big arms and stomach ( two babies and 2 c sections later) I don't wanna loose the weight and be left saggy xx

    Welcome, glad it's going so well for you - in some ways it's easier to just abstain even on special occasions as you can lose momentum and find it harder to restart. Hope you get a good loss on Wednesday :)

    I agree to the abstaining. Been thinking about week four when u add the 201calories. I don't like drinking milk but may use 201 calories worth in tea with a sweetner. As only drinking water now!

    My sense of smell has gone absolutely crazy!! Something smell lovely and other thing extremely horrid! Bizzare! Just has my last shake of the day and I'm now going bed! Didn't mange much water today about half a litre. Hopefully when my orange mix comes tommorow il be more inclined to drink as I know how bad it is that I'm not!!
    Really upset with my partner. Yest he left an empty pizza box lying around which I felt like he was rubbing it in. Today he took my little boy to mc Donald's so I decided to stay at home with my little boy to mc Donald which was fine but bought home a big bag of sweet and was eating them.
    Now I'm not hungry as such. It's more if foods there i can smell it and it's really like torture. Wish he was more considerate!! His answer was it's not me doing the diet. Thanks for that. Ensue a big argument . He eventually apologised. But support is needed for this!!

    Day 6 today. Wierd thing is I'm not hungry in the mornings or afternoons really. It's evening when I wish I could eat. Made my partner dinner and I was very jealous ! I can see myself eating much healthier tho once I come off exante. I used to eat a lot of takeaways and stuff but I feel so great without all the sugar and crap in my life I want enjoy my food and be healthy and I realise that can be possible!
    Got my delivery today for weeks 3 and 4. I'm very surprised as ordered on a Sunday and they delivered next day so really pleased. Tried my orange mix with sparkling water. Didn't really rate it. So think il keep so just water and force myself to drink more!
    So tommorow is day 7 and weigh in Wednesday morning. I really hope I won't be disappointed. I started last wed at 10st 10. My first goal is 10st 7 and second goal 10st! I can't wait to get into the 9a that will be such a boost for me!
    My friends having a meal out her birthday 3.5 weeks I would have been on total for. If hope there would be some kind of difference in how I look. I'd live to wear a sleeveless top. I hate my arms and always buy things to cover them up. But I can't wait for the day I can show them off. Maybe 3.5 weeks is too early but I know it will happen soon!
    I also find myself looking in the mirror a lot at my arms and tummy wishing for differences. I know sometimes u can see it but the tape measure shows u so I've ordered one ! I hate that I'm one of those now people. I need results NOW! Or I get stressed and give up. I'm trying to be positive and keep going!! X

    Day 7 today. I feel disheartened today. I'm worried I haven't lost much. I see everyone with their stones off in first week or 10 lbs and I don't think I'm anywhere near :/ tommorow will tell :/

    Don't get disheartened Star

    ...bear in mind that you have a LOT less to lose than some of us - so that might be reflected in your weekly losses :)

    You're doing great, and will soon be at target, no worries :D

    Thank you. I know any loss clearly shows success . Im just one of those people who want it now! Tommo will be interesting in the morning ! I hope I see a difference!
    I went out today and treated myself to a slender tone and slender tone arms package. I've wanted one for a while and been reading the reviews and they all say great stuff if used over an 8 week period or more. Well I thought it would help tone me up while I loose weight so I treated myself to one with some birthday money I got!
    My arms and my stomach are my two problem areas! I've got a huge bum too but luckily Kim kardashian has made it famous and ok to have a huge booty lol!
    Still only had one pack today. Not feeling hungry at all! X

    Hi CS, Darcy is right. Try not to get despondent. Its not only what the scales say but also the getting smaller that's rewarding. It wont be long till you notice your clothes getting looser.

    You will have to let us know how the slender tone works. I will keep my fingers crossed for WI tomorrow. I'm sure it will be ok :fingerscrossed:
