Hi all, I started my L.L journey Feb 25th 2010. I weighed 13.5, on my first weigh in last Sunday I had lost 6.16llb; part of me believed my counsellor had fiddled with the scales to make me feel better but the waistband on my clothing says differently... My first weekly meeting is tonight and I have been on and off the bathroom scales, the Wii fit etc to see if I can see further progress! My biggest fear is getting there tonight to be told that I haven't lost... or even worse - I've gained!!! Not a morsel has passed my lips apart from my four sachets a day and obvious fluid intake but the fear is still there! The constant thought in my head is what happens in maintenance? Do we begin on a lettuce leaf a week or what? Any experience in this matter would be gratefully appreciated. I'm forty at the end of June (three weeks after foundation is due to end) and my hubby, bless him, is trying to arrange a few days away but doesn't know what to arrange in relation to where I will be at with my new regime! In answer to a previous thread regarding the water flavourings, my counsellor stated that the amount per day was unlimited, hope that helps? I look forward to regular catch ups with you guys and hopefully we can exchange hints/tips and stories along the way , will post the result of my weigh in later... Cheers, Debbie.
