    I was an LL client up until the end of November, stopped for Xmas, gained weight (doh!!) and tried SS-ing again........ However the will had left me!

    I rejoined SW just over a week ago as I have done this before and I know it works. Sadly and God knows why, my first weeks loss was half a measly pound. :sigh: I was gutted, totally. I have paid for a 12 week countdown, so I am still hanging in there, just about!! It just better improve this week or I am probably going to stop. My will isnt that strong!

    I do wonder, and perhaps you can advise me, with LL I drank 4 litres water a day, & I am drinking nowhere near this now. (I am a coffee addict tho) Should I up my water again?

    Hope to post lots with you guys. I am happy to be taking control again and I know SW works........

    I dont think you have to drink as much water as on CD because u dont go into ketosis. But waters always good for u anyways.

    Best of luck and hang in there

    What are the reasons for drinking so much water? I know one is to stop you feeling hungry but there must be a scientific reason for it? Anyway, I agree with Babs- it's good to keep hydrated but I don't think there's any reason to drink any more than you want to. I think after doing a diet like LL or CD your body needs to readjust a bit- and besides, half a pound off is still half a pound off! You're doing well!

    I find that SS on CD means i DO feel more thirsty. I know that to feel thirsty means your body is already dehydrated but sometimes i feel like i am choking with dryness and have to drink immediately

    I was told the water was to help liver function and thus helps the body metabolise its food etc. I think I will try drinking a little more and see if it helps my loss this week. My WI is on a Weds so fingers crossed!!

    Thanx for the welcome too!

    Hey Sarah, Are you making the most of your free food? Cos i found the more i ate of the free food the more weight i lost. Sounds weird, but if i didn't have very much to eat that week i'd lose virtually nothing or stay the same.
    As for the water heres a link to find out how much you 'should' be drinking for your current weight.

    I have started Sw again and was ill the 1st week and lost 7lbs only to eat properly the 2nd week to put on 4lbs. So i know how gutted you must be feeling. My class leader asked me if i was still motivated( and she wasn't kidding)..........lol. I was ready to give it all up there and then but have perservered this week and i'm gonna c how my weigh in goes on thurs. Hang in there and see how the next week goes. I'm sure you'll have a good loss this week.
