For all you newbies out there...

....I started 21 days ago and I just wanted to let you know that it's actually gone by VERY quickly and its been easier than i thought but If you're struggling here are some tips:

Distraction methods:

- bath
- nail painting and giving yourself a manicure / pedicure
- getting in to a proper moisturising routine, face and body
- going to www.damnyouautocorrect.com and easily whiling away an hour reading and laughing
- starting a blog
- YouTube - search for inspirational videos or just funny ones
- read a book you haven't started because you 'haven't had time'

WATER INTAKE. try the 3 litres a day and also note how amazing your skin and hair become.


This is so important. Like I say 21 days 100% for me and I'm just getting through each day at a time. Looking at the whole thing in front of me is mammoth so I can only take it step by step.

Each time I've had a craving I've thought 'why am I craving this?' is it because I'm hungry - no, is it because I'm craving food - not really, is it because I'm greedy! More than likely.

I then ask if I can get to my next shake and have 500mls water or distract myself with some of the above.

I'm treating myself with a back, head and neck massage and facial after I do 100% for 4 weeks.

I bought it on groupon.

Good luck to you all.

You can do it (especially if I have)

thank you! really need motivating now but had a family photo the other day and my mum has just shown it to me - i look awful! I'm going to look at it now everytime I want food!
Thanks for sharing your tips for getting through. I'm on day 2 atm ss+ and am feeling ok really. Struggling a bit with water as i don't really like it but trying my best. Have managed a litre so far as well as 3 or 4 coffees.

Please keep your posts coming, it is a great help.

Oh and good luck xx
Hey Chezza I am on day two of SS+ also. I am doing 4 packs +milk (so I can have coffee!!)

Not feeling too bad, less hungry than yesterday but had a headache for much of the day!

Good luck on your journey :)
Hi Tink.

I have not suffered with a headache but have felt a little fuzzy at times, but all in all so far so good.

Hope you acheive your goals and good luck with your first weigh in xx
