Hi all I was reading one of the threads that asked if anyone was going from 14 to 13 stone and thought I could join the group. I decided to weigh myself and to my surprise I wasn't 14 stone but 18.3 stone. I was astounded! 3 months ago I ruptured ligaments in my ankle and have been home on crutches. After much reflection I decided to order the exante packs immediately. I start day 1 tomorrow and do not plan to stop until I have lost the 6 stone. I must say I find the discussion and support very encouraging, except when there's talk about the intricate details of food. I know there's a calorie increase intermittently, but the detailed discussions about types of salad or the way the meats are cooked can create devastating memories in the conscientious abstainer. I want to circumvent any possibilities of failure, but although I find this community extremely supportive, I may drive myself potty visualising the food discussed. Maybe someone can help me rationalise this in my head. Maybe I won't be affected by it. Anyway I'm 18 stone going on 17. Bring on day 1.
