I was very suprised when I got on the scales this morning to find I had lost 4lbs in my first week! I think it would have been more than that but I started Exante the week I was due my monthly, and I normally put on about 5lbs (in water retention) so the fact I have lost anything is amazing!!!!! Plus the fact that I am hypothyroid after having a total thyroidectomy 2 years back which has totally slowed my metabolism to a virtual stop I am even more amazed! To add to this I started on the Total but kind of went onto the working solution as found it too hard (again probably because of my monthly) So I will be back on the Total Solution in the next couple of days and hopefully I will be at my target weight in no time. This diet truly is fantastic!! Considering it took me 2 years to lose around 16 pounds through healthy eating alone before I think Exante is more than worth every single penny!!!
