    Hi everyone!
    I was on the boards a fair bit a couple of years ago on my first LL journey.... without going into too much detail I fell off the wagon and am back to square one again and back to class on 4th january. I'm re-starting with leftover packs on Friday with the idea being that I'm over the first-three-days-feeling before I go back to work on 4th.
    So, there must be others out there starting in January! Looking forward to getting to know you all and supporting each other through our journey.
    Loula xx

    Hello preeti, em and rainbow! Good to have some more peeps along on the journey with me. I am actually so sick of food it is going to be liberating to not eat any for a while - I'm excited about getting back on the packs tomorrow morning.
    Here's to a slimmer 2011!!

    Hi YummyMummy - I've got a similar amount of weight to go as you do, and I'm a mum too - I've got a gorgeous 3 year old little girl. I just can't bear the thought of her having all the eating issues I've had growing up, and it's got to the stage now that I am so fat and out of breath the whole time it's starting to affect my playing with her. Definitely time to do something about it! xx

    Hi Loala, I have 4 children and just can't do what I'd like to with them :(

    My 2 boys are 5 and 7 and my 2 girls are 1 and 3 so it's a lot of work which I'm seriously struggling with at the minute :(

    I have so many issues surrounding food it's untrue and I don't want my kids having the same problems.

    Here's to 2011 :)

    Hi girls, well I'm still going to be on a vlcd but I'm switching to w8. I'm not keen on having a male llc when a lot of my issues surrounding food have come about BECAUSE of men so when my husband said he was going to do w8 I did some research chatted to his lovely (female) consultant, tried a couple of rather gorgeous shakes and have decided to swap over.

    I was led to believe w8 didn't do the cbt sessions but they do so I feel this is the right choice for me to make so I can really sort my problems out once and for all :)

    You're not going to banish me are you because the w8 boards awfully quitet!?

Hope to get to know you girls a bit better along the way! Am 31 and 5'2 - am currently 13.8 (highest weight 17.10). Hoping to get to about 9.7 ...

    Happy new year all!

    I started Day 1 today... currently just gone 6pm and I'm about to have my 4th pack and then head to bed. I'm such a party animal!!

    The memories of how amazing ketosis is once it arrives is keeping me going. A nice long sleep tonight and a day of "me-time" tomorrow is well needed!

    Hope all those starting tomorrow or on day 1 today are OK!

    Loula xx

    Hi all
    Happy New Year to you. I re-started abstinence yesterday. I'd forgotten how awful the first few days are but like you the thought of going into ketosis is keeping me going. I'm hoping I can get back to goal weight in a month - I need to lose 12lbs to get there (most of which I've put on in December). I maintained for 4 months but really did lose the plot this month.
    Good luck everyone
    xx

    Hi, I'm a restart, but w8 too. I hope you don't mind me crashing your boards, but it is really much busier here and the diets are quite similar in some ways!

    I've done my first shake of the day - I think part of the problem is that I'm waiting to feel yuck on days 3/4, so off to do something to distract myself!

    Here goes!
    Good luck everyone. :)

    Happy 2011 guys!
    Hope all those that started today are managing OK.
    I'm now on Day 2 and oh-my-goodness did I have some crazy dreams last night!! I remember that from the first time I did LL - really vivid and crazy dreams - anyone else get those?! Interspersed with getting up every 2 hours to go for a wee!!! Am feeling OK today - daughter with her daddy this weekend so I've got time to focus on me and getting back to ketosis, which hopefully isn't too far away!
