    Hi,
    I`m starting on the slimfast diet tomorrow.....Monday 19/05.
    Ordered 2 months worth of supplies from boots online ( buy 2 get 1 free deal), hoping it will be here by tuesday, i have 2 days worth in my fridge.

    Unless there`s another way of doing this, i want to use this post as my personal account of my diet.

    I will be weighing my self on mon/weds & fri.
    Have got the wiifit, so until i feel comfortable with going outside to exercise, will be doing 30 mins a day on that.

    I now weigh 13.8 stone, and would like to get to at least 11 stone by christmas.
    I`m hoping by joining in on forums etc..i can get some motivation to sick to my diet at last.

    Thank you for your friendly comments, I will join the next month`s challenge.
    I have been looking through the site, it`s great to hear other people doing well, love the before and after pictures. Think i`m going to take some beofre pics and put them up in food cupboards.

    Todays food:
    B;porridge
    SN;none
    L;choc shake
    SN;5 strawberries
    D;pasta,bacon,veg&sauce thing(600)
    SN;apple

    Did feel like a snack mid morning, but was at work & thought it best to go with out rather than eat something naughty.

    Hiya
    If you feel like a snack you should have one. This diet isn't about depriving yourself (I never do!!!). You could take fruit or a healthy snack to work with you so you're not tempted by naughty things

    I`ve bought a maximuscle bottle to mix the shakes up with, does anybody else use something like this.... or should i use the blender? Thanks

    I use an electric whisk/blender thing which works great. No nasty lumps or anything. Don't know about the bottle but if it works for you then great.

    i also use a electric blender, otherwise they taste really powdery.

    I never feel headachy but I know people do sometimes when they haven't drunk enough water so increase your fluids and it will probably go away.

    I haven't done CD. There are quite a few differences between the two diets. It is more expensive but you do tend to lose more. I think people on CD start out on ss so only have shakes and no food or snacks but I may be wrong there. From what I've read CD concentrates around ketosis which isn't an aspect of SF. If you have a lot of questions about CD you could try a post in their threads because there are quite a few CDCs about who can help.

    Hi Buffydog

    I did CD and lost 3 stone quite easily, it is VERY different to SF though, it is very extreme but it DOES work but can be very hard going. It is virtually impossible to have a social life as you can't drink alcohol and only a tiny amount of food unless you are completely Sole Sourcing and then you have nothing but the shakes or bars.

    Give SF a try first as most people only go onto CD when they are really desperate, I know I was as nothing else worked for me as I needed very strict discipline and enjoyed not being allowed to eat food. When I got to the point where i had to start eating again I struggled like mad with control.

    Good luck with SF for now anyway :D

    i noticed its quite high fibre what your having, and SF is VERY high fibre, in my first week it took me 5 days to pass normally on the toilet but i lost 6lbs! bear with it, your body will adjust!if your not used to high fibre i recommend some coffee lol, although senokot works well but is more expensive!
