Well, I joined months ago for a 'Final Stand' and it just never really happened.. I blame the holiday season! But every year at this time I give something up.. this year I have given up.. FOOD!!! Ok, so not strictly true.. I will be giving up food that requires chewing, lol! So for the next 6 weeks or so I am going to be 100% Exante shakes.. hopefully at that point I will be able to just continue with it as I will be far from finished by then.. I have about 6 stone to lose. Currently on Day 3. Day 1 and 2 were ok, although I didn't feel very well so only had 2 shakes and not enough water.. more on track today! I enjoy having a vanilla or banana shake in the mornings with part boiling water, part cold water (to cool it), a sweetener and a huge heaped teaspoon of coffee!! Mid afternoon is whatever is next in my basket (I keep a week of shakes mixed and sorted into 3s in a basket in the kitchen) and in the evening it is another warm shake.. usually chocolate but I like all the flavours I have! Mainly I stick to peppermint tea, normal / sparkling water to drink, with the exception of the morning coffee, but when I have done this previously I do enjoy black coffee too now. Looking forward to being successful for longer this time (!) and I plan to introduce the 30 day shred once I have made it past the first week or two.. so, here goes!!!
