I have started back on ss after a year. Last time i lost a stone in 4 weeks which was brilliant but in the end i just couldn't face the shakes and soups and ended up only having one a day - which was not good. Any way this time i seem to be coping better. I think it's because i'm doing it while i'm at work and i'm distracted. However, i am concerned that i will get very sick again and ireally want to loose weight for my holiday and so that i will increase my likely hood of being able to conceive (we've been trying for 16 months). I was thinking that when i get weighed i may have a small, low carb meal on that night and then stick ridgedly to the ss again after that. I think it may help even though i know it's cheating a little. What do people think?
