Well, nearly 2 weeks on the diet, but after dealing with a sick child, lightheadedness and other stresses, I have probably spent more time off it, than on it. So, I'm calling this Day 1. After speaking to my consultant, I have decided to try Step 2, because I really wasnt coping on the VLCD. I've also had a little chat with myself, because with 5 children, there is always going to be stresses. Anyway, I'm back to being positive. I want this more than anything, so good luck me.
