    ....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.

    TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME.

    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)

    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

    Best get on it asap!

    I'm also treating myself to a new tattoo when I get to my goal weight :)
