Hi Again Nat,
crikey poor you having to cook for everyone, it must be hard I dont know that I could resist as well as you do, yes its my first time on a diet of this sort, just had my last one for the day as o/h doesnt get home from work till 8ish so try and have it with him, ive had chocmint,strawberry,banana and choc so far and like them all, I tend to have a mouthfull of shake and then water to wash it down which seems to help, tried the chicken & mush soup last night but couldnt even do a couple of mouthfulls so had to throw it & have a different one, it was really chalky but then im not good with cuppa soup type things generally.
Im not sure how long Ill be able to stick it out for, hopefully the good losses will inspire me to keep going, I only want to lose a couple of stone max (although I do really need to lose more) but ive ordered my wedding dress (getting wed in april) and a couple of stone will need fair alteration and dont want to risk ruining it by doing too much.
Ill be happy with even a stone as ive never been tiny and would never want to be if im honest, im very lucky that i carry my weight evenly so I dont actually look that bad even though Im 5'2" and 14st 8lbs at the moment, will be very happy to get to low 13's if I can, Im going to try for at least a couple of weeks hopefully a month on s/s as I know I will get bored and frustrated, then maybe do 2 packs with a dinner at night so at least you have something to look forward to and keep you going but Ill see how long I can do, at the moment im trying to be positive. Last sept I was 15st10lbs and have farted about with ww & sw but soon got bored with both as Im not a lover of salad or veg, can do it in moderation but not everyday although I need mainly to cut the fizzy and chocolate out to be honest then would probably be ok, but I can see a massive difference from that weight to what I am now, so like I say even another stone I know would make another big difference to the way I look, so fingers crossed any loss is a bonus eh...
Good luck with getting through our next day, we can do this!!
Take care, Lizi x
