well it's been the end of wk 1 on SS and I weighed myself yesterday. A 4lb loss. Was hoping for a bigger loss, but after everyones encouragement on here I've perked up. The hardest thing I've found is the cold and tiredness. My hot water bottle has never been so well used, and for feeling tired. I've been so spaced out, but yesterday was like something had lifted, I had a spring in my step and so much energy. I was a force to be reckond with. More of it, is what I say! The best thing about visiting my cdc was getting a wider variety of flavours. I only took a few last week to try them out, but needed a change by yesterday. Had the Toffee & walnut shake last night mmmmmmmmmmm I though I was having something naughty. Looking forward to my weigh-in next week now and being able to do some exercise. My cdc said no exercise until after the first 2 wks but I've had a trainer twice a week since Jan and am missing not doing anything. True I could just about walk upstairs last week as I was so tired, but if my energy levels continue this week I might start a bit earlier. Do you think that would be ok??
