    Don't stress too much about the scales! Weigh yourself one day a week in the morning time. Your weight will fluctuate during the day, never mind the week.
    Stick with the programme. Drink plenty of water. Try and take about three litres a day. 80% of the time you feel hungry it is actually water that your body is looking for.
    I find it most important to watch portion sizes. Simplest thing to do is to use a smaller plate or weigh things for the first week or two till you get used to seeing the portions. 35g of dry pasta is tiny!!!
    Good luck for your weigh in tomorrow!! Even if it is not what you expect, just keep going!!! Hop on here for help.

    Hi Mak

    Good luck with the diet and great news on your weight loss.

    I am on the Go Lower diet which is low GI as well as low GL and low carb..... what a mouthful and it has put my body into ketosis so I do not feel hungry. Although I do drink much more water now than before I started the diet.

    I also have all my food supplied so I don't have to worry about measuring out portions as it is all ready to stick in the microwave, very easy for someone like me who won't cook!

    As Irish Molly says, try to only weigh youself once a week and at the same time as those mid week weigh ins can fluctuate.

    Keep up the good work.

    Suzy, sounds like the Go Lower is going well for you, you have lost loads. Have you lost all your weight on that diet? How do you manage when you are going out, do you take a meal with you???

    Hi

    Yes all my weight has been lost thanks to Go Lower. When I go out for a meal I normally choose a chicken dish and some veg and maybe a prawn cocktail to start.

    That is pretty much what I would order before my diet except I would have bread with my starter and chips with the main and of course the biggest chocolate dessert going, now I just skip dessert and don't even miss it.

    Go Lower do supply a list of foods that are ideal when you are in different restaurants but as I am so fussy about food I just tend to stick to chicken.

    Glad to hear you are going to try to stick to weekely weigh ins.
