    I there, I'm Nicci and I have been lurking here for a few weeks. So I guess it's about time I surface and introduce myself.

    I'm a 42-year-old mother of one, i work in finance and have a fairly busy lifestyle. The pounds have crept on in the last five years, and my goal is 69kg (152lbs) which is what I was when my son was 6 months old... So can't blame my current weight on baby fat, lol.

    I'm on a total food replacement diet (Cambridge and Xtravaganza products) and I now have 14lbs left to my goal. I lost 20lbs on vlcd in May, took a break over summer with Atkins. And I managed to stay the same weight over summer!

    Today is day 11 on my second stint of vlcd, I'm looking forward to weigh in on Wednesday :)

    Hi Emma, and welcome. And what a good start you have had!

    I have no personal experience with how totm affects hunger, but from what I've read, it certainly can affect you. Hopefully someone else will chip in with more info.

    Wellspring, I'm back... After a super stressful year at work with lots of meetings over lunch and dinner, and skipping meals. Oh and a couple of excursions to a chocolate factory... I'm back. With 16kg (2.5 stone) to loose to get to my goal of 69kg... :(

    Started Cambridge and Xtravaganza VLCD on Tuesday, so this is the challenging day three.
