    Take it one day at a time and try to keep your mind off food by doing other things - reading, puzzles, pampering yourself. Some days will be harder than others but once the first week is over it will be easier.
    You can do it.

    Good luck... Have you done any preparation..? Carb withdrawal... started glugging loads of water??? It really helps!

    Do's: Stay motivated
    Use us for all the support you need
    Make sure u follow all the rules
    Drink loads (I usually try about 3-4 litres)
    Think of the future

    Don't:Give up
    Eat/Nibble (It'll make things tougher)
    Feel that you are alone

    (By the way... I am on day 8 and the first week was a challenge... but worth every moment)

    You have probably imagined that'll be worse for the first week then it actualy is

    Hi Ettie,
    I noticed that you said you are a single mum.
    Hope you find time to check out our Lone Parents Lounge on the site. There are a lot of us on here who understand the extra difficulties as the only parent and trying to do things for yourself as well at the same time.

    It's a place to come and receive support, give support or just have a good old moan about things....:)

    thanks everyone....

    Well this morning I've had a pint of water & a black tea.... I'll wait for my first shake until after I've done the nursery / school run.

    Got a friend coming round for coffee too so must attempt to tidy alittle so she can sit somewhere! lol!

    Off to drink some more water!

    I keep thinking... the more you drink the mjore you shrink!

    Looking forward to getting to know you all -x-

    Definately drink loads and loads and loads. I prefer the water warm with flavourings it goes down easier but drink consistently throughout the day!

    Hi Ettie

    Good luck with your day 1. As everyone has said, get through this first week and you will sail through. Just think by following this diet to the letter you will only have approx 1 stone or less to lose by the time Christmas arrives!!!!!!!!!!

    You already seemed to have picked up on the most important factor of the diet and that is drink, drink, drink water and then drink some more.

    I look forward to reading how you are doing.

    Take Care

    Day one is drawing to a close... I've decided to blog my progress http://julieann.iblog.com

    Today has been ok & I'm pleased that I've managed to drink over 5 ltrs of water as I've never drunk any water before. I am missing my tea & coffe & found it hard to drink it black today.

    Anyways onwards & upwards....

    The first week is hard JulieAnn, no point in denying it, but it does get easier. I am struggling like crazy atm, I really want to eat again but am hanging in there for dear life.

    Keep posting, keep drinking and keep your chin up, you are doing great.
