The forum is definately a great help especially in this first week, and it does sound like your other half is keeping you motivated which is half the battle. If anybody needs help there is always somebody around to help when you feel like chatting (which is great).
thanks for reply..its nice to know there is someone there.. just had a new experiance with mouthwash.. hope its ok.. it tastes naughty.. and nice... its licorace flavour in spain and with the water afterwards it feels like i am having a PERNOD.. this is great as long as its not stopping KETOSIS.. i only washed my mouth with it.. i didnt swallow it..

It is the same with me Breda, when I put on weight it goes straight to my face and I hate it sooo much as my face is the only thing I like about myself and when I do lose weight it starts with my face and I feel sooo superb. Looking in the mirror is nice for me again.

I nearly lost 4kg my first week and my whole family noticed it. I never used to put my hair up as I thought my face was massive but this week I did and I liked what I saw. All this because of 4kg's imagine how we will feel when we lose more. I cant wait.

Hi Breda and welcome to LT and this wonderful forum :)

Just check your mouthwash is one of the three brands allowed on LT! Otherwise steer clear, not matter (or especially!) how good it tastes...

Welcome Breda. This is the best forum out there and kept me going through last year, without it I'm sure I would have given up after about 8 weeks (all the time I was originally planning to stay on LT) There is always someone here to listen/offer advice/encourage and that is priceless in my eyes.

I'm sure you will be a gorgeous granny in no time.
