    Hi guys!!!!

    Well as the title says it's day one for me on TS!

    I've done cambridge n lost 8 stone n finnished over a year ago I put on a stone quite gradually n made the decision to restart a vlcd

    I have been planning to start for some months now n rather than being good and low carbing I have been ridiculous n eating loads n eating badly and gained another stone!

    So just got back last night from a few days away visiting familly and am ready to start

    I'm off work untill Monday so roughly enough time to get into ketosis although day 5 can often be my toughest n roughest!

    Been busy today until around 3 pm and since then just resting up. First shake around 2 pm chocolate didn't like it just downed it lol second shake just now was bannana it was ok and around 1 litre of water down

    Gonna have vanilla shake when little ones in bed gonna try it hot with some decaf coffee n get an early night!

    Planning to be very selfish over these next 4 days n sleep when I wanna sleep n do as little as poss but keep busy indoors to get through

    I always follow minimins n hope to get to know you all a little better

    Thanks for reading xx

    hiya hun , I am pretty sure I remember you from the CD board !! Good luck getting that little bit of weight off , it will be gone in no time :) exante is not as sweet as CD but I find the shakes much more filling and the soups and bars are LUSH :)

    Good luck. I am sure you will do well. I think Exante is brilliant, I started in March this year, on the last lap, a bit slow now but it's great.

    Day two for me still going strong no signs of breaking thank god! I will do it this time!! One shake down getting on with the water n coffee infront of the tv

    Lazy day! :)

    Tried vanilla shake hot with coffee n hated it this was last night btw it actually went down the sink! On a positive just had a vanilla shake (cold no coffee) n actually quite liked it!

    ATM I'm using just over a weeks worth of shakes given to me so by Monday i'l be ordering the bumper pack.... Although I've heard some bad things re the soups lol but we shall see!!!!

    Had a sneaky peak on the scales this morning all heading the right way :)

    I don't find the soups so bad, esp if you add some pepper. Not so keen on the veg one but then I'm not that keen on regular veg soup so that's not a big surprise!

    You seem very determined and you know what you're doing re. a vlcd so i'm sure the weight will be gone in no time. if you're unsure about the soups you can just order a bumber pack of shakes and bars/just shakes, i can't stand the soup so that's what i do, but i know others cant stand the shakes! It's such a lot of money to put into something you dont know if you'll like - they should do sample sachets! x

    Tried a strawberry shake and all I can say is ..... Weird! What a strange taste! Anyways two shakes down m 1.5 litres of water down getting the odd spell of hunger but it soon goes once I fill up with liquid.

    Thinking to go see a film tonight with OH as little one stays with nanny on Fridays only thing is I'd have to drive n don't know that I should as I'm getting the occasional dizzy spell n vagueness nothing out of the ordinary but just on my way into ketosis

    Anyway we shall see! Mentally I'm wanting food but just keep reminding myself of new years eve outfits n all the skinny minnies likely to be coming out with us lol

    the shakes are strange .. I was expecting something sweet like CD .. but you soon get used to them :) I have lost 8 stone and have 14lb to go ... I actually only have 7lb to my long term goal but I know I gain at least 7lb as soon as a carb passes my lips so going to allow for a little gain !!!

    I'm 5 foot 7 maximum weight for me should be 11 st 4 so that's the target is more like 10 st 7 but tbh dont feel bad from 12 st n below so we shall see I guess

    Well done shell. The first few days are so tough. But it will pass, the energy levels will pick up too, it's just your body getting used to a new way of functioning. It protests but gets used to it in time.

    Just focus on the results. It will be so worth it, take care.

    I'm actually on day 5 n back at work!! Yay me! When I'm busy it's ok so may well be in ketosis now i'l check in the morning!

    Wearing a pair of trousers that fit me rather loosely a couple of months back n now they are like a second skin! They look ok but feel horrid I've worn them to work in purpose as a constant reminder incase I feel like breaking the diet!

    It's lunch time now not going to tell collegues about the diet this time so no shake for me so gonna pop out n get a coffee.... It's only half hour lunch break so not too much time to kill

    Hope Everyones having a successful day
