I'm going away for work and pleasure til december. I still have 40 pounds to lose, and I always meant to practice maintaining until January. Thing is, I've been maintaining this past week- but not really- I've had a shake or flapjack for breakfast and lunch, then nice dinner also wine occasionally...... Anyway last week I bought 42 shakes and 42 fjs in order to continue in this way cause it works. BUT my plan was to go cold turkey and maintain, let my body tighten up, hair sort self out, extra nutrients etc. - and just see how I'm doing with normal life. It also seems a bit silly to carry LT half way around the world. AND might be hard to get it through customs. Shall I risk it or just try to exist without LT? Also - how will I manage without you all, my invaluable support forum friends?
