    Hola Everyone. I said hello a few posts ago whilst waiting for my delivery. Day 1 of TS yesterday and it was OK. 3 litres of water plus 4 packs (I was quite hungry).
    But.... woke up this morning with a raging headache and sickness. Feel awful but I don't work so I can stay in bed.
    I love this site and find your stories and support a real inspiration. Thank you.

    Thank you all. Will post Thurs after a quick sneaky WI on Thurs.

    Feeling a bit better, just had tomato soup, which was lovely. Roll on 6.00pm for next soup!

    Morning All!

    Devastation this morning - got on the scales for a quick peak and put on 6 kilos! I was inconsolable. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the scales had gone wrong and OH got out another set from the garage. We both weighed and low and behold lost 7.3lbs!!!! Tears turned to smiles. Managed to get old scales to work properly so now using 2 sets just in case!
    Not feeling hungry this morning, so going down to 3 packs. Don't like the bars much so ordered just soups for next month. Next mini goal is to get thru Day 4, as I always struggle on Day 4 and usually give in - NOT THIS TIME! Hope you are all doing OK.

    Just got the wobbles and ate 3 crab sticks only to look up on the internet and find they are high in carbs! How stupid. Anyway, feeling really hungry so having a bar with a coffee. Still on 4 packs a day but hope to cut down to 3 soon....

    Well done so far Karen! Stick with it and I'm sure you'll be so glad you did.
    I'm not doing the exante diet, but looking at the other people here who are it seems to work well!
    Good luck!

    Its good that your OH is supportive, mine is too although i doubt he will stop his beer for me - especially on a Friday! Tonights going to be make or break for me... Fridays are always our treat night, usually with a chinese and wine so i bet i will be pacing up and down at around 8pm. x

    Every day is treat day for us. Living the dream in Spain, not working, lots of wine, food, cakes, choc. That's why I am on this forum! I have really got to keep going on this as I have piled on the weight in the past 5 years here. I've gone from 80kilos to 116! Did LL some years back and dropped 4.5 stones. So I know this kind of diet really does work. It's just the first 2-3 weeks that is the killer. Trying not to weight til Monday and that is my first week done.

    Hi DnD! Well done you!:D So, now you have done it once, you can do it again and again.
    Weather here has only just turned. We were at 25c until beg of this week. Now it's chilly am and pm but days are still fairly nice blue skies.
    Only a little off today (I know I shouldn't weigh every day but....) still a little off better than a little on!
    Keep on going....how long do you expect to be on this? I guess you are on TS?

    Oooh much warmer than here then it's raining and bliming freezing. Wish I was over there now. I too had a tiny loss today about 0.5lbs so a bit disappointed wanted to hit 12 ideally by the end of the week, isn't looking likely now.

    I'm setting myself small goals so the big one isn't so daunting. I'm gonna stick with it 100% until Xmas then back on it after the new year. I reckon 3-4 months in total especially with having Xmas In the middle. Not sure really. The OH doesnt really agree with me being on this, I think the main reason is that I won't cook for him anymore. I'm sure I will be able to soon but don't want to risk it ATM. So what are your plans for today are you doing anything exciting?

    Hi - Funny, I was hoping for 12lb too this week. I am in this for at least 6 months! You can see from my stats I need to be!
    Sunday we usually go to our fav restaurant and have a wonderful 3 course lunch with loads of wine and coffee with Bailey's. Now you know why I am dieting!
    Anyway, did paperwork today and drank loads of water. Desperate for a soup but try to hold off until OH eats. He is really supportive, 5 years ago he married a slim woman and now......
    I must ask Starlight if she does AAM week or ever eats anything in between TS. Her results are awesome.

    That's my kinda Sunday ;) not long and we can do it again.... Maybe not every week but every now and again would be nice. I think when I am struggling which I'm sure I will at times I gonna throw myself a chicken breast in the oven. I don't want it to become a habit but if it keeps me on plan it will be worth it. I'm really proud of myself for sticking with it. Normally chuck the towel in and cheat before now. You should be proud of yourself too I bet it's hard having all that temptation around you. The big wi tomorrow!!!! Did you take your measurements too? Let me know how u get on.

    Hi Everyone - very happy as my loss for Week1 is 10.3 lbs. Feeling great, I have definitely got my MOJO back!

    Just sat with friends having coffee and they all had sticky buns - me, nada (that's Spanish for nothing!).

    Here's to a good Week 2. Good luck everyone. K
