    I start Lighter Life on Sunday and am REALLY REALLY excited. I am 5'8'' and have 6 stone to lose... I have never been slim and am just sooooooo psyched up to finding the whole new me.

    Hello to everyone else here on Minimins! Look forward to sharing my/your journeys!

    Good luck!!
    I stated LL 5 weeks ago and have lost 2st 2lbs so far!! It's great!
    The first few days will be the hardest - I had a killer headache but it soon went when I stepped on those scales and saw I had dropped 13lbs!!
    I've got roughly 1st 12lbs to lose now - so 4st in total, the time has flown by!!

    Hi Annaphylatic

    I am doing CD not lighterlife but if you want a virtual running partner, I am also around 5.8 and need to lose 5-6 stone

    it is exciting!

    I would say that my first 2 days were the hardest...I hadn't realised just how many times and for what reasons I reached for food, and I felt very hungry.

    But as soon as ketosis has kicked in it feels quite easy, I have no hunger at all and doing shakes is one less thing I have to think about

    Good luck:)

    Hi Annaphylatic
    great name - are you severely allergic to diets? lol x
    You are starting in a positive frame of mind , so methinks you are going to do amazing on lighterlife and find the happier slimmer you!:party0049:
    So many people see diets as a prison sentance - I see it as a release from prison as I live a much freer life as a slim person!
    Good luck for Sunday and next week

    Thank you all for the supportive comments! I have just made it to the end of day one - not particularly enamoured with the flavours, but I am sure I will get used to them. :)

    Angie-bum - yeah, definitely good to have someone to work with that has similar weight to lose and height. How many weeks have you been on it?

    Thanks again, it means a lot to have the support on here - I think I am going to find it harder than I first thought, but the end result is worth it, so I will just grin and bear it :D After all, this isn't about things tasting nice, it is about changing my life... :)
