    Hi everyone,:D
    I have approximately 5 stone/31kg to lose. I have put on this weight over the last 7 years, lost a bit put a bit more back on etc (I'm sure you all know how it goes !)
    Anyway I can't stand being fat any more!
    So here I am, I am doing slim fast, I have done SW in the past but I find being able to eat huge amounts doesn't retrain my eating habits.
    When I splurge I can still eat huge amounts and that's not beneficial in the long run.
    I NEED to be able to eat less but not have to deny myself things I like (occasionally). Does that make sense?
    When I was slim I ate whatever I wanted BUT I ate much smaller amounts than I do now.
    So my goal is to get back to eating less high fat/cal food and eating much smaller portions.
    Today is day one, wish me luck ;)
    Lookign forward to getting to know you all :D


    ps.I have lost 9kg in the last 4 months hence my ticker but I was off the wagon again LOL

    Hi!
    Well I have had a banana shake for brekky, I have clementines for my mid morning snack, shake for lunch, banana for afternoon snack and a salad with the meat from one chicken drumstick, a small bread roll for dinner! LOTS of water.... well 2 L :)
    I know the first week is always the hardest so I will do things to keep busy if I am tempted to raid the fridge!!

    Hi everyone,
    well, i had my weigh in on Wednesday, and i lost 12.6lbs!!!!
    my CDC has some really cool scales, and i lost 6.4lbs of fat and the rest was water.

    i have been away for the past 2 days, staying with friends and went out clubbing, i tell you, i cannot believe i managed to stick to water and 3 shakes everyday!

    this is really hard, and i am pretty certain that i am not going to stick to SS for the whole 12 weeks, but i am just taking each day as it comes.

    something i read has stuck in my mind, and has really helped me, so thought it would be nice to share.

    if i am wobbling i ask myself... 'is my desire to eat greater than my desire to be a size 14?' and at the moment the answer is no, so i dont!

    anyone got any tips on beating a horribly scratchy sore throat without sucking on a sweet??

    thanks x

    well done on your losses! :D

    gotta say those CDC scales sound cool!! :D

    Hope your throat is better soon - it's normal when starting a VLCD and will go ;)

    I did slimfast for a week before I could see my CDC :) was amazed at how much it had changed (for the better) hadn't done it for year.. like about 12 :p And I lost 6lb in a week so was chuffed! :D

    Look forward to seeing you around the board :)

    glycerine is good in warm water for your sore throat but not sure how it effects ketosis :/
