    Ok here goes
    I have my best friends wedding at the end of August and as part of a group of five women all similar ages and friends for the last five years I am THE FATTY :sigh:

    Wedding is a fiftys theme and I would love to be able to really get into it

    Also I am fifty in two years and time to stop and take charge of this constant battle with weight

    Hubby lost 8 stone on Exante last year so have decided if it works for him I am going to make it work for me

    BUT realistic and know I will need support hence I am on here !!!

    EACH JOURNEY STARTS WITH A SINGLE STEP and this is my first step

    Hi! Good Luck!!

    I started today and so far so good! Only issue is the amount of water I have to drink. I spend most of my day driving in the car and so I've had to take loads of loo breaks through out the day! lol!

    Think I may have to avoid water during the day and maximise my intake in the evening once I'm home!!

    Good Luck again!! (",)

    Hi all and thanks for the great welcome
    I have just over seven stone to loose but as long as I loose the bulk by August I will be happy :)

    as for Hubby he is doing ok put back on a bout a stone since he finished maintenance in November, but considering going back on as he was three stone off his goal but we had a holiday and then Christmas

    As for me just having my last shake
    have a banging headache
    and really cold :sigh:
    PLease tell me it gets better
    I just feel like curling up and going to sleep

    It definitely gets better, when depends on how long it takes you to get into ketosis, but it def will get better :) hang on in there, the first week is the hardest physically!

    banging headache already , hehe that usaly comes on day 2 or 3 , lets hope thats the last headache you will get . yes on vlcd you will feel cold more so .
    Thats why i hate doing them in winter , when i had my gas heater it was on so much .
    maybe 5 stone by August .
    As people say , everyday is different on the diet ... try not to think whats coming next and think of the pounds melting away to a new you .
    some people say first few weeks was easy then it got hard some say the other way so really its hard to say .
    your hubby done really well , i'm sure you will too , keep posting

    It does get better but be patient. It takes time for your body to adjust. Rest, have an early night, warm bath - anything except food which will make you feel better. Feeling cold is an early feature, but it goes.
    Wear an extra jumper, socks anything - this will pass. Tomorrow it will be better. Good luck
