    HIya!

    I had a phase like this too.. my LLC said that she didnt like the packs but just chucked them down her so I have doen that from time to time.. when I missed a pack the other day I felt terrible physically and mentally the next day so don't do it!

    I also seem to alternate between really low and really high.. Almost like I feel so deprived and sorry for myself alternating with proud of myself and excited about my slim future.

    Remind yourself how well you've done, what a fab start and be nice to yourself.. this is hard but we'll all help each other get there!

    Drinking the water is the best and quickest way to speeding up weight loss.

    Why is it you don't want all your packs??? Could you make one of them into truffles?? crisps?? muffins??

    hiya,
    just thinking, would it help if you 'doubled' one of your shake taking times up? ie mix 2 together..

    Why is it you're struggling, is it coz you don't like them or your'e just not hungry??

    flirtys idea to cook one of the packs is a good one as then you can 'chew something!'

    your welcome :D

    yep def i reckon having two together may help... try it and see how you go...

    to make the crisps you mix the pack with water into a paste, not overly sure how thick it should be, then spread onto some parchment paper or a teflon sheet and pop in the microwave, you can also cook them in the oven..

    I'm more of a muffin queen, know how to make them!!

    put about 2 tablespoons of water into a rankin dish or thick based mug - add in the pack and mix it all up - should be quite thick - not quite as thick at a dough mixture but not as runny as a cake mixture! then pop in the microwave for about 1min 15 secs - may need a bit longer but keep a close eye on it... you might want to add a sweetner or some water flavouring to it - tis all trial and error really, i prefer mine with nothing added to it...

    take it out of the rankin dish or mug straight away other wize it goes rock hard!!

    Enjoy :D

    love

    I do, they're ok! Seem more flavoursome than the sweet packs, which, I thiunk, lose some of their flavour when cooked.
    have a go!

    My advice is you must have all your packs even if not hungry. I think of the packs as medicine to make me slim rather than food and that helps me get them down when I'm having a difficult day.
