    Hi all, so today is my first day of TS. I've lined up all my packs for my first weeks menu! I'm excited but a bit nervous as it the first time I've done a vlcd. However I am feeling super motivated and have been reading all the threads on here which have given me the biggest boost of motivation ever so thank you! I've got about 3 stone to lose so fingers crossed. Had a chocolate shake mid morning and planning a soup late afternoon and another shake in the evening. Actually enjoyed the shake, surprisingly very creamy! So fingers crossed I can keep strong and stick to TS!x

    Hi

    I'm now on day 3 - first time on a VLCD as well. I'm sure times will get tougher but I'm suprised so far at how easy it is. Haven't tried the chocolate shake yet - the banana is nice and creamy too :)

    Good luck xxx

    Also new to the VLCD thing and day 4 for me - so nice to see there's someone else out there who seems to be excited about it as I am!

    I've now tried all the shakes, bars, and all but one of the soups, and have yet to come across anything that's offended me to the extent that I can't eat it - in fact, I actually really like the taste of all of them (though the soups are a little cloying after half a bowl) which is a good thing as it means there's actually a chance that I'll manage to keep to it. I think that was the thing I was most nervous about - what if I didn't actually like the taste of the TFR? Fortunately that's not an issue so now all I need to do is get on with it.

    I've not even felt hungry yet. Bonus.

    Hi all,

    I am starting tomorrow, am totally nervous as I know trying to stick to this at work will be hard, but fingers crossed. I want to lose 6 stone with exante and then another 1.5 stone with SW. I know SW works because have done it before but then I got pregnant and put on about 5 stone and after little ones was born have put on another 1.5stone eek! Sounds so bad when I write it down.

    But.... she is three now so cannot use the babyweight excuse any longer, it is shear lazyweight and I want to shift it.

    I was always planning to start tomorrow (packs arrived Friday) but my grandma died yesterday (she was 93 and it was in her sleep, sad but no unexpected) and the funeral is going to be the 16th. Obviously dreading it because it is a funeral, but also am feeling embarrassed what family who I havent seen for years will think. And this is one occassion I cant duck out of, so if I can lose 7lb by then I am hoping my confidence will be a bit better.

    Love this site so far, sparklygirl hope you dont mind jumping on your thread - hope we can do it!

    TTLT xxxx;)

    Thistimelasttime - really sorry to hear about your grandma - doesn't matter what age, it's always so sad when they pass away. I agree with Sparklygal - Day 1 was easy for me too - I'm now on Day 3 and still feel fine. Keep coming on here for the support - I think it's fabulous and I feel so welcome - we can all do this:)
