hey lori welcome to the LT family, it is tough and it does get better. But we have all had some bumps or near bumps on the road, just stay strong, keep water beside you at all times and if you feel a bit wobbly come on here and we will try and help you get sorted!

Hi Lori
I'm new to this as well - on day five. It's not easy but reading how well everyone else on here does makes me know it's worth it. I got weighed today because of bank holiday and I've lost 6lbs already. Loads of people have laughed at me when I've told them I'm on a total food replacement diet... they'll be laughing on the other side of their (mostly fat) faces soon!!!!! Stick with it.

;)Hang in there, the first WI will be all you need to keep you going so just think of that!

:DThis site is great for keeping you going. If I ever feel down I just pop on here and read what everyone is up too and it makes me even more determined to carry on! I've been really grumpy today - OH got most of it in neck - but after 20 minutes on here I feel much better.

:)Just take the good advice offered about drinking lots of water and coming on here when you feel weak and you'll soon be buying clothes the next size down.

:scale:Good luck. :party0011:

Keep going it does get better. Once the ketosis kicks in you'll feel much better. Good Luck and stick with it - it's worth it - just think clothes that fit nicely without having to wear loose tops to cover bulges.

Well done you for kicking the fags...thats my next goal. If you can do that, you can do anything. First week is tough but once you get weighed you will see how worth it it is!!!! Loads of water, keep as busy a possible, treat yourself in non-food related ways, manicure, hair done, nice long soak and definitely come on here if you are feeling a bit wobbly, definitely helps me anyway. Best of luck!!!!
