    Good luck.
    The first week is the hardest!
    As I am just re-experiencing!

    It's worth it! Set yourself a goal and think about it constantly!

    I have a stressful job, which I used to constantly use as an excuse to stuff my face! Make yourself a list of all the reasons why you want to do this. Now when I get stressed and am looking to escape my desk/my computer/my team - instead if running off to buy and eat a diet coke or bar of chocolate, I go hide on the toilet and read my list a couple of time! Keeps me from cheating!

    Good idea might have to try that one! I am worried i might faint or something but that's probably being a bit dramatic! Does feel like mind over matter..... The ready made shakes are better than the powdered stuff i think well so far! X

    I only have banana tetras!
    3 a day - everyday!

    Unfortunately I did experience a bout of fainting previously. I always carry a bottle of water with me, and sip it when I feel weak - workable moat of the time.

    You shouldnt faint, being overweight your body has more than enough supplies to keep you going! That faint/hungry feeling should disappear at about day 3 or 4 and you will find life so much easier. Just push through till then.

    I find short term goals really helpful like make it to 3 days, a week, 10 days, 2 weeks, a month. Dont look too far ahead or it gets daunting!

    Good luck!! xx

    keep drinking the water, it REALLY helps you not to feel hungry.

    once ketosis kicks in hungers not s much of a problem any more

    Gosh, where have you been all these years? LOL.

    Just read the posts on this forum, and the other VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet)forums, and all will be revealed.

    Not the easiest diets in the world, but they offer the fastest weight losses - if you stick to the plan most of the time. That's the hard part.
