:sigh: So I got chubby... Hi there! I'm Sara, I'm 26 and I am a foodaholic. I have just started the sole source diet and now on my eighth day. I have gone through most of the unwelcome symptoms and had an afternoon nap on one of the days to black it all out. I actually liked that I felt so bad those first three days. It told me something was happening to my body and that I was detoxing. So the worse I felt physically the better I felt mentally! Very odd. I have tried quite a few diets but seemed to have fallen off. I feel really positive about this one though because it cuts you off completely from food so there's no real calorie counting or working out what you can and can't have. I have had real ups and downs and figured if I am really going to do this- I need to join something to help me. I read a lot of posts from people and different links and everyone on here seems amazingly supportive and lovely which is what I need to get involved with. I am currently between a size 16 and 18 dress and would ideally like to be a 12. I need to lose about 4 1/2 stone. I feel more motivated with this diet than any I have other done and look forward to reading about other peoples experiences. My first proper weigh in is Wednesday Morning where I will start to set up my weekly "figures" - hah! See what I did there? I look forward to chatting with you guys and feel free to check my diary whenever. I am going to have another look at other peoples now! Sara PS. Who else has a mouth AS DRY AS A DESERT??
