    Hi

    I have been faffing around for ages and have developed a liking for chocolate cake since getting the implant in my arm and taking pill together!!

    I am heavier than I have ever been which is depressing the hell out of me!! :-(

    I am off to the docs to see if he'll remove the implant so I can get back to normal!!

    After that I am heading straight to Superdrug for my slimfast supplies to try!! It is a first for me and I am quite apprehensive as I love my grub!!! But at the same time I do not want to get any heavier!!

    Plan of attack:

    Slimfast regime, exercise including jogging, 30 day shred DVD and zumba DVD. Twice daily vibrostep sessions!!

    Will be on the forums daily for support and tips!!

    Btw I am 5ft 6ins and 15stone exactly (ouchy) and a size 18.

    Speak soon xxx Sarah :)

    Hi Sarah, good luck - I liek Slimfast, takes alot of hassle out of the day having to constantly calorie count.
    Are you getting the powder or ready made shakes? The shakes are £1 each at Asda, cheapest I've seen around so far. I gave up before cos of the hassle of making up powder shakes and washing the blender twice a day! xxx

    Hi rowanx

    I went to superdrug and bough the mix and some bars and some snacks. They were all on 3 for 2 and I spent £31.46.

    Then popped in to asda to see if they had the shaker bottle but the biggest loser 1 was £4.97 so I decided to use a big sports bottle that I have at home.

    Then I noticed the ready made shakes!! Bargain!! Bought 3 for now. That should keep me going for a while.

    Have you tried asda's own make? Lots cheaper!! Will try these out first.

    Are they filling? I love my food and I think it will be a shock to the system lol.

    I find the ready made shakes alot more filling than the powder ones - i used to blend in a banana with the powder ones, some people put ice in to bulk it up a bit x

    I've never had the ready made shakes, as I always found them to be very expensive compared to the powder.

    I think it might be a good idea to have a couple in the car/my handbag though as I got caught out when we went to the cinema and then an unplanned visit to burger king! I would have been fine had we just gone straight home after the film, but I was starving, so HAD to have a double bacon cheeseburger and fries lol x

    They are £1 at asda at the mo!! Asda's own are 88p not sure about tesco's own. When my stash runs out I'll be trying the cheaper version!! :)

    I've never liked burger king or maccy d's but I can't walk past a chippy without wanting something!! Where I live now there are no shops or takeaways so it's a tiny bit easier!!

    Start again today petal :)

    I will be getting up soon and having a ready made shake as I need to go buy a blender!!

    I might give the Asda ones a go for 88p why not!
    cant see them being much different. They are 1.69 in savers which is really dear, i nearly cried having to buy some from there lol.

    Lass I love the vanilla, the strawberry and banana are nice too. Im personally not a fan of the chocolate and I hate coffee so I have never tried the coffee flavoured one.

    I have only ever used the powdered shakes but I believe the smoothies are nice too.

    I was dubious before trying slimfast but it just tastes like a milkshake:)

    I tried Asdas own and was not impressed. The chocolate one was really malty and the vanilla one was just yukky.
    For the extra 12p I'll stick to Slimfast, plus Slimfast are thicker and I dont drink them as quick as with a straw.
    Was worth trying though to see xx

    My OH didn't like the choc one either when I gave him a sip of the ready made one. It was ok, would be fine for a last resort lol.

    I loved the strawberry powder one. And the banana one is luscious :) have vanilla to try but want to get the caffe latte one too!! I'm going shopping tonite so will need to stock up on ready made ones for work!!

    I think last time I combined a scoop of vanilla with a scoop of choc which made it more bearable.

    You could also combine vanilla with the strawberry or banana to make it a bit different x

    The cafe latte ones are lush, theyre my fav, but you can also add a bit of your coffee to a vanilla powder one and give a good shake xx
    the choc ones are a bit too rich i think. like a bit more bournville where as i like dairy milk :p
