    heya guys!!! today is day 3 of this wonderful jounery that i am on. Moving back to a fit and healthy me. 2010 was a very hard year for me with some very serious health issues... nonetheless i am still here and very happy to be soo. Recovery has been taking much longer than i thought it would. I guess i had to accept that i wasnt 28 but 38 and i should couldnt just run out of my hospital bed and back to work ..like an idiot..lol!!! anyway i have done a lot of work along the way and given up a lot of thing that were not helping me get back to my best..
    1. coffee - quit :happy096:
    2. ciggs - quit :happy096:
    3. toxic relationships - quit :happy096:
    4 . stressful job - quit :happy096:


    so now that leaves me with this year challenges ....

    5. kick sugar - in progress
    6. lose this weight - in progress

    from my experience with my other success ...i know that getting your mind in the right pace is vital and also for me having people who i can have as support around me.

    So many of you are such inspirations for me and it seems for everyone else on the pages...

    i know that people always say that but thank you for being brave enough to put your self out there when it was hardest to do so. thank you so much!!

    i am commited to this. Thank you to all of you for your encouragement so far!!!

    3 extra bars isnt good. The bars have more carbs in them than the shakes so it really isnt recommended to have more than one a day. If you have to have something you would be better off having some chicken or tuna or the like which will at least not affect your ketosis.

    On Total solution (TS) its 3 packs a day or 2 packs and a bar. Like Joanne explained the bars are higher carb so will affect your ketosis if you have more then one :(

    Exante do other plans where you can add a meal AS WELL as your packs, working and simple solution. There is more info on the website.

    Hope this helps :)
