    Hey,

    Congrats on the wedding! I started the slimfast diet 6 days ago and have never tried a 'proper' diet before.

    I always hated the idea of shakes but something suddenly snapped and I decided I needed to do something major to lose weight in time for the summer. I was sooo hungry at first but yesterday and today I just don't feel hungry and have actually had to force a few snacks down me just because I need to eat. This is coming from someone who LOVES food and is always eating. I haven't had my first weigh - in yet but there are plenty of people on here who have lost weight with slimfast.

    I think 9 weeks is long enough to lose a stone, that's what, 7lb a month and less than 2lb a week - that's doable if you stick to slimfast I'm sure.

    Good luck xx

    PS forgot to say - the way I've been doing it is a shake for breakfast, a shake for lunch, a mid-afternoon 100cal snack and then a proper dinner with chicken and salad or potatoes or pasta (as long as its under 600cals). You can have up to 2 more 100cal snacks as well I think throughout the day.

    You can work it how you want though, I'm sure everyone does it differently.

    yep sure is and i am so loving this diet dosent feel like a diet at all make sure you drink plenty of water though i tend to drink more water a day before my weigh in weird i know but it makes me pee more thus weighing less and it also helps with the old constipation :)

    Peanuts yes of course I'll report back...I've made a diary thread so I'll put it on there.

    Bridetobe - Yes I think that sounds pretty much how slimfast want you to do it - I think you're allowed 3 snacks if you get hungry :)
