    just thought I'd introduce myself ... I'm starting the programme in just over a week and have been reading all your messages in order to fully appreciate what I've let myself in for!
    I'm just over 15st and the last size 12 that I wore was on my wedding day, seven and a half years ago! (and that was a bit if a squeeze :eek: ).
    I hope to get to know everyone better over the coming weeks ... you're truly an inspirational bunch of people!

    Welcome - you will find this site very supportive and full of information, i know I have.

    You've done the hard bit, signing up to LL. Its an exciting journey, not always easy but the results are worth it. If you can, start to cut back on the carbs and up your water intake before you start LL - it makes the transition so much easier. Then once you are in ketosis and have the wonderful feeling of being in control you will find it so much easier.

    good luck hun and look forward to hearing of your successes.

    Hello, I am sure that you wont regret your decision to start the lighterlife. Like you the last time I was a size 12 was on my wedding day 10 years ago!! I still can't quite beleive that I will be a size 12 again:eek: . You might already know but I started yesterdday and feel very positive. I think waiting helps you to prepare yourself for the 100days. If I was you I would certainly drinks litres of water and try and cut down on your carb intake. However enjoy your food. This was my intention but on Monday evening my husband rang up from his way home from work and really wanted to order a celebration curry as a good luck on the diet. I did eat it but did not have any rice. Now I am in day two and have woken up really happy that I am trying to sort my weight problem. i look forward to readin about your journey.

    There are loads of experienced LLers here so just yell if you have any questions.

    hiya

    well done for making that first huge step by joining ll. I found actually deciding to join the hardest part. I would also so cut down on carbs and start drinking water, I didn't in fact if anything I spent a week eating everything I was going to miss and had 3 days of misery detoxing. Im on day 6 and I honestly havent felt this motivated in years. Im not hungry and I have no guilt about what Im eating. 4 food packs done, so easy. This forum is fab it really helped me when I felt so awful, so if you need advice or support just yell.

    Thanks to everyone for the good advice - got a bit of a shock thismornimg though - the LLC has suggested that she starts the group a week earlier! Meal out for hubbies birthday will have to be cancelled and had not even thought about cutting down carbs yet! Still very excited though ... I DREAM about Lighterlife! help!
