    good morning everyone, hope you are all well!!

    im now on my 2nd CD day and the water is going down nicely to keep my from being too hungry. thing is i drank 6.5 litres yesterday (basically drinking when i feel hungry) but im at work tomorrow 12 - 6pm behind a counter in a shop which is very busy and im not going to get the chance to drink so much or wee so much!

    i know i just have to try to drink as much as poss but im scared ill crack because ill feel ill if i dont drink and wee enough. i could tell my bosses what im doing and why i need to frequent the loo but nobody seems to get a minute so my chances of being let away are pretty slim......im worried...any advice???

    One of the first lessons you have to learn on this journey is that you have to be single minded and sometimes selfish. If it were me, I would have a private word with my manager, and tell them that for medical reasons, I had to drink a lot of water and therefore go to the loo more than usual. The exact reasons aren't really any of their business.
    You ARE losing weight for medical reasons, as your present weight is considered medically unhealthy, so it's not a lie.
    Remember, don't complain, don't explain.......

    Good luck Lizzie. I agree with Ann. Whenever I don't want to eat somewhere etc etc or have special requirements I never say I am on a VLCD. Use the "medical" reason and nobody likes to question it ! And it is true !

    Beautiful Picture Lizzie,

    Please stick with it and follow Ann's brilliant advice. Drink as much water as you can before your shift starts and try and pace yourself during your 6 hours. If the shop is busy, you can't eat. I know on the way home from work I get hungry and have the urge to stop and buy myself some crisps HOWEVER I physically have to tell myself that a I have x amount of shakes left and they will satisfy me when I get home.

    Don't do it to yourself, PLEASE do not. It's the chatterbox speaking, nothing more!
