Hello my lovely Exante family, oh how I've missed you all :D
I've been maintaining on Atkins for a month or so but am coming back to use up my packs and hopefully lose a bit more.
I'm out tonight and the weekend may not be the best time to re-start, so I'm thinking probably Monday would be the best.
By starting a diary and making my big declaration I wont wimp out :rolleyes:
If I don't do it now I'll end up doing it just before Christmas and that's a bit pointless when I'm only planning a couple of weeks this time!

Well I can certainly pick my moments. As declared over the weekend I decided to restart today. Not only have I been awake most of the night with nightmares it's also TOTM!!
Oh well, I'm munching my choc orange bar at work. Can't get much worse can it?!!

Only half way through day 1 and I'm already feeling crap. Just had to have my banana shmousse as I was light headed and felt like I was gonna be sick. At the moment I don't feel like it's worth putting myself through this for the sake of a couple of weeks but having weighed this morning and gained almost 5lbs I have to do it.
Not a very contented Kitty :(

ohh hunny, not seen you around before so saying hello first :D

Remember why you wanted to start again and keep that focus in mind! It's the only thing keeping me going today after a shocking weigh in even though been 100% for 22 days (22 day today lol)

Hi DK i was over on Atkins did a week lost 5lbs went to visit relatives and the rest is history :rolleyes: Atkins is good although i was spending way too much money on it, so no choice but to leave. This is day 1 again for me on Exante as well, keep your chin up and think of the end result, easier said than done i know.

Thanks my lovelies. I actually feel better now, just glugged the old water and ignored my body yearning for a snack.
Think I'll give the bars a miss for a couple of days as I always have probs with bloating, it was just convenient this morning as I had to go into work.
I'm sure I'll get into ketosis quickly as I've been hovvering on the edge since being on Atkins :)

Morning all, went to bed hungry and it took a while to nod off but once I did I had a fab night's sleep. I love that about Exante - no rubbish in your body to keep you awake or feel guilty for eating!
I've got a bit of a headache but nothing serious and think I need more water today so I will try my hardest.
Strawberry shmousse for breakfast I think then maybe hot chocolate 'custard' for lunch.
Bring on the day :)

Hi there. I was on an (enforced) sabbatical from Exante too. It’s great to see a familiar name. I’ve got a delivery coming tomorrow & it’s the first time they’ve sent me an email about delivery time, imagine that now gets me excited. How sad of me. I’d a few packs left over, so I started on Saturday.
I’ll have to dig out the piece you wrote about the Stages of Exante to help inspire me. I had not too much difficulty the last time due to the encouragement from people like you who had no problem staying on the straight & narrow.

Hi Orlaie nice to see you back too, people tend to come and go on this diet quite rapidly lol.
Well day 3 for me and last night the dog breath arrived only to be joined this morning by a splitting headache. I can't believe I'm so happy to feel this bad lol.
I was absolutely 100% yesterday with plenty of water. I stayed off the fizzy water, coffee and bars and felt much better with no indigestion.
Right I'm off for a quick shower (working at home today) and maybe a quick naughty squizz on the scales :)
Happy Wednesday everyone, halfway to the weekend yippee.

Had my previous favourite pack this morning - victoria sponge cake raw mix aka vanilla shake mixed with a little water for the right consistency. My taste buds have changed as it wasn't as good as I remember it :(
Will have to endure my OH and his son eating take away tonight!
Maybe hot banana 'custard' for lunch :)
The scales were kind so I'm spurred on :)

My OH came back from the gym and asked me to go to the cafe with him. I said no way was I going to sit and watch him eat so he went on his own.
I've just checked out the stages of exante thread and although I'm at 13 (big K) I'm miserable and wondering why I'm putting myself through this again. It's so cold, my heating isn't working properly and I have to go to my sons college this evening for the talk on financing university. I hope my stomach doesn't rumble all the way through and I'm able to concentrate. This is important stuff and I need to take the info in! I can't even take anyone with me as it's limited to 1 person per student.
Sorry for the rant, I've got the grumps as I'm having trouble getting to sleep at night. I just lay there waiting for my bladder to fill up again!
I only have myself to blame, if I'd left the booze alone I may have actually lost some weight on Atkins and would be looking forwards to going out for dinner tomorrow night :(

My stomach growled all through the talk haha. Had to wrap my coat around me trying to muffle the sound!
It was all useful info but to 'work the system' to the full means I can't get married until his final year! I was a bit disappointed by that but my financial situation (not a penny from his Dad, don't get me started on the Thai bride situation lol) means I have to do what's best for his education. Part of the job for a Mum.
Anyway all this rambling.... it resulted in some vino plonko being consumed. I jumped on the scales and they're still showing a good loss but I'm fully aware that it won't show up for a few days. We're going out tonight and as I no longer have a wedding dress to buy I may have a working solution day :whistle:
