    :eek: Hi everyone! I was on minimins last year but became poorly (non diet related) I've struggled for most of this year.. choping and changing, going it alone to full on oh what the heck I don't care if I'm fat.. well that's the first fib :eek: I've been reading the posts for day's and finally decided to pop up and say hi and hopefully contribute to posts and to get some support.. as I need it.

    I'm medically no longer able to do ss or ss plus.. but I sure remember how hard it can be.. I've finally setteled now at doing 810 and today is my first day proper.. I've been a bit slack for the past few weeks but now I'm back on mini's I'm hoping it will give me extra focus.. not a great start though today.. woke up full of cold.. :( so i'm having a day at home.. the water is by me.. more in the fridge and all I can do is give it a go.. please feel free to drop by and say hi.. wish me luck

    hello and good luck...
    maybe allow yourself a few more cals etc... until you are feeling better, then get straight into it... your body needs time to recover..
    but if you are happy doing the 810 then go for it...

    Hi

    and welcome back!! I agree with Kes.. your body needs more energy to recover .. so maybe consider 1000 for a few days? You'll still lose but won't feel rotten.

    Take care

    stick in there kid and go and have a hot shower or bubble bath. Give yourself a good massage afterwards with lovely creams and lotions (this way you are treating yourself with something, at least!). This helps me x

    Just as well I don't have a bath :D saying that though I would really like one today.. thanks everyone for the warm welcome. I have added a few bits from the 1000 plan.. not sure it's even a cold now I had my flu jab on Saturday and was fine last year but this year it's swine flu combined and I became sick within a few hours.. oh well whatever it is I still feel yuck.. have a good day everyone :)

    I remember the first day I had a bath as an adult, I was so excited about fitting into the tub.... was sorely disappointed though as I'm 6'2" so I might have fit width ways but I was too long for the tub so was COLD! hahahaha :p
