    I'm through day 1 :)

    Everything is going well so far! The package arrived on time (and discreetly packaged, so no funny looks from colleagues, haha).

    I have tried the vanilla shake which I think is particularly nice, along with the chocolate orange bar and the veg soup. I have a method of getting the shake nice and un-lumpy using a fork and a sieve!

    I hope day 2 goes as well, I'm going to the gym as usual but I'm going to take it relatively easy.

    Day 2

    Day 2 is going OK, I've had a shake and a bar (which are both rather tasty). I dropped 6lbs overnight :)eek:) which I'm guessing is water weight! I am feeling a bit peckish now though, just having water water water!

    Tonight will be my first trip to the gym, and I'll have one of my packs before I go. Would I be able to add another pack / snack when I get back if I'm hungry? generally I'm not when I get back, but just in case...?

    Hope the rest of your week goes well. x

    Day 2 Part 2

    Good luck too, Blue! Let me know how you're getting on :) And thank you for the advice Joanne!

    I didn't need to have a snack / extra pack in the end. Today I walked to and from work (30 mins) and did 5 min rowing warmup, 15 mins walk/jog and 15 mins cycle with a full leg weight routine and I feel fine. I was hungry- but realised I was just dehydrated as I still had 1/2 bottle of water after spending 50 mins in the gym!

    :)

    Day 3

    Today I had a banana shake, which wasn't bad- it just didn't taste like much to me. Tonight I have a works outing to Nandos that has been in the planning for ages, so I have chosen to have a veggie burger with the side salad- it comes to just under 400 cals. So I'll still be within the calorie limit, but unfortunately I'll have to wait a bit longer for Ketosis... but it saves all the explaining of not going / not eating.

    I'll also be gymming it up tomorrow to make up for it! :D

    Day 4

    Today has been good so far - Thai Chicken soup (didn't really taste like much) split in 2 so I could have it in a mug. Then I had a chocolate orange bar (yum!) and later I will have a strawberry shake (not tried this flavour yet- vanilla is still winning) after gyming it up. Going to be 100% today after the planned 'off-plan' dinner yesterday. At the gym today it will be 40 mins of cardio and an arms session if all goes to plan! :)

    Day 6

    I have decided not to do the Total Solution all the time anymore as I'm working out far too much... Last night I had a funny turn at the gym! :(

    I'm going to switch to the working solution, just so I can actually work out! I still think the losses will be good still, maybe just not as fast :)

    I will keep you updated on how I'm doing- I had a peek this morning and I'm 11lbs down so far... :D

    Day 0 (Part 2)

    Lots of things seem to have taken over my life since I wrote all of this, a lot has happened that turned me upside down! I have successfully maintained that amazing week 1 loss though.


    So I’m back. I was inspired by coming across two boxes of soups and shakes in my spare room! I have enough for a couple of weeks I think (off to count it in a few!) Starting tomorrow I hope (I need to be in the right frame of mind, I need my determined hat on)! I look forward to conversing with you all again (and losing all of this excess jiggle…) :)

    Hi CP :D

    That is fantastic that you have maintained your original weighloss all this time !! :D

    How much exercise do you do at the gym ?
    Once or twice, when I initially started, I did feel a little light headed, which did pass...water seemed to help.
    But then, I am only aiming for 30mins exercise a day. Some days I do a bit more, some days, none :eek:

    I think if you are spending quite a bit of time at the gym, then 4 packs TS may be your answer.

    I do mix and match between TS and WS, depending what is going on in my life.

    Good luck
    Marge
    :D

    Day 1 (again, haha)

    Thanks Marge! :D

    I do about 45 mins cardio + weights about 3 times a week. Plus EA Sports Active 2 on the Wii on non gym days. Oh and I walk to and from work! Until I'm used to the diet I think I'll cut down on the cardio and focus on building muscle - then incorporate cardio as I feel up to it.

    So as a clean start today, it's day 1 again. The last day 1 will ever see if all goes to plan:p

    Day 1 - Eek

    I'm really motivated and in a better frame of mind today! :D Yipiee.

    I think it's partly because my friend just told me she's got engaged (eeeee!) and I don't want to look like a whale at her wedding! :eek:It's not going to be until next year, but it's still a along term goal to aim for. And my 2nd bumper pack arrived today, so I have plenty of supplies to do this!
