    hi petra, welcome to mini's. its tough at times all right but once you get by a few weeks it def gets easier. What keeps me going is looking at old pics, my goals, why im doing this, and a big thing that keeps me going in fitting into smaller clothes, doing up seatbelt on aeroplane without the extendy bit that was a big thing for me aswell cuz love going away

    hope this helps

    I started on Monday too. I know its cheating & some are dead set against it, but I'm staying motivated at the moment by weighing daily. I've lost 5 pounds in 3 days! I know its only water weight & it will settle down, but at the moment I get a reall buzz out of seeing it.

    Once I stop seeing the huge change every day I guess I'll stop looking, but for the moment - WOO HOO!

    I look at my before and now pics, I also remember the problems I had walking, that my asthma was terrible, I only really wore elasticated waists.

    Good luck to you, it's hard, but so worth it

    Good luck with it! I started on tuesday after a 3 year break. My kids keep me motivated and the fact that I will be a yummy mummy and be able to buy what I like in the shops.x

    Welcome, it will get easier, the first few days / week are the worst, it gets better after that.

    I have health issues that really need me to lose weight, I've been thinking of how my quality of life will improve by shifting the pounds as quickly as I can :)

    Hi Petra,

    I started Tues so now on day 3 and I am finding very hard. Especially as I really can't stand the flavours I've had so far.
    I have quite a few motivations; want to be a 'Yummy Mummy' as my Daughter will be going to School soon, my holiday in July, wanting to wear the 'fashionable clothes' and feeling good in them also going into anyshop and fitting perfectly in a size 14.
    I also have been weighing myself at home every day and so far I have lost 4lb so checking that is def keeping me going!
    Good Luck!!
