    Hi there.

    My first day was long. I work as a nanny so I have to cook for the children and it's the worst. But hey, we'll get there...

    Hi Sam

    I know what you mean about feeling sorry for yourself but it does pass because LL becomes your way of life for the time being.

    I think I was fortunate, I didn't have headaches in my first few days. I did feel hunger but it was over ridden by excitement - it was actually happening!

    The hunger pangs will also pass in a a few days!

    I think it is good to be around food and not try and avoid it - in that sense I carry on as normal. I still cook for my partner every night and I really enjoying it, especially all the smells! I go out for dinner (just drinking sparking water), I go to BBQ's and socialise whenever I can. I am learning that I can enjoy myself and life without food and alcohol!

    Good luck on your journey! It will be dropping off before you know it!

    Kat xx

    First day, both times, enlightened, energised, positive, eager, ready.

    This is such a short slice of time the sooner it was accepted and got on with the sooner I would be me again. And I am.

    I'm not saying it's always easy but you have to turn it around, give yourself a talking to and get on with it. Pat yourself on the back too. You have great will power to join the program to start with, there are thousands out there who haven't got the bottle!! You're already one step ahead.

    Well done on coming to the close of day one. Tomorrow is a new day. Onwards and downwards.

    I found my first day ok.
    I remember having to get used to going to the loo a lot which was annoying but even that gets better after a while.
    I found 3rd and 4th day the worst though (sorry i don't mean to scare you hun ;))
    I had a headache, was VERY irritable and tired. After first 4 days pass, it all gets sooo much better.
    As far as feeling sorry for yourself and being around food. Yes it is hard at first but like Kat said, LL soon becomes a way of life and you simply just go with the flow. Soon being around food would be much of a deal as you'll be in THE zone :D
    Here's to that day coming soon for you hun! :)

    i felt great my first day - soooo excited!
    the first shake i made was gross tho - hot vanilla and coffee really lumpy.
    the second at lunch was awful too - lumpy chocolate!

    i didn't care tho

    and i learnt how to make the shakes with ice and a blender!

    Hi Sam,

    Glad you had a good day...keep up the positive attitude and you will sail through.

    I was hungry the first few days and obsessed over food, but that soon passed and now I hardly give it a thought.

    Good luck.
