    Hi all,

    I have been lurking about here for a while and reading all your posts with growing interest. You are all doing so well, and seeing your losses and reading up about the diet has inspired me to give it a go too!

    I was doin w8 for a few months over the summer, and lost 16lbs but found it ridiculously hard to stick to - like most people I do like to eat every now and then!! So over the summer holidays I managed to put 7lbs of it back on, didn't mind too much as I thought it would come off again pretty quickly... it didn't!! So after a few weeks here and there trying weight watchers and slimming world etc etc, I decided to give this diet a go.

    I wasn't expecting much, and was really quite half-assed about it all... started last Monday (12th Oct) on a down day, did dd's on weds and fri, and pretty much ate what I wanted on tues and thurs. I was feeling all fat and lardy on fri night, looking up gyms in my area (that I'll pay a fortune to each month and never go...!!) and just whining about the unfairness of it all! So on Sat morning, i thought I'd get on the scales and see what the damage was......... only to find out that I'd lost 3 lbs!!!!!!

    Well I was gobsmacked!!! (Hence all the exclamation marks!) I am loving this way of eating, and the fact that it actually works amazes me! I do have a long way to go, and although I would like to lose the weight very quickly, I have finally accepted the fact that it's not going to happen overnight!

    So after all my rambling, I would just like to say thankyou to all of you for posting your diaries and thought etc on this diet. I am really hoping that this is going to be the one that helps me lose all this weight, and if it wasn't for you guys, I'd be back on meal replacements feeling pretty darn miserable!!

    Sorry for the essay, hope all this makes sense, and I'll now stop lurking and start talking!!

    Thank you!! You're all so friendly - it's great!! Have been on some other boards in the past, and people weren't quite so welcoming!

    Am on a down day tomorrow, so hopefully shouldn't be too difficult! Just the cold I have to contend with, really dislike tea and coffee so don't drink hot drinks other than hot chocolate and don't want to waste my calories on that.... hmmm maybe some hot squash????
