Hi All I have been on Exante since 7 January and spent many hours catching up with all your threads which have been so inspiring and not sure I would have been so focused without you all so a BIG thank you x. Well I started my journey at 11 stone 11 and my goal is to get to 9 stone 11. I have lost 7 lb so far, 4.5lb in week 1, and my next WI is Monday. I did LL lite 2 years ago and got to 10 stone, then stopped as got married, went on hols, focus changed and ended up back to high 11's - gutted. Anyway as was used to LL with a meal in the evening thought I would start with the WS. By day 5 I was not feeling hungry at all, ketosis I guess not that the sticks said that! Plus was so motivated by all the threads from TS people so did a day TS and found it totally fine. This week I have done 2 TS days so far. My plan now is to do roughly half and half. When I do have a meal it is all with ketosis foods. Had a real light bulb moment yesterday. Had a horrible day at work. Usual reaction for me would be to reach for a large glass of wine and or russle up some edible treats to make me feel better. But no. I didnt, I didnt even think about either of those. I just cried! Cried and cried, pathetic but couldnt stop. Even cried to myself again this morning. What I have realised and this is the lightbulb bit is that food and wine have been used as a crutch. I feel like I have turned a corner and by letting the emotion out instead of blocking it with food I am now determined to take steps next week to ensure that I get help with my workload and stop trying to do too much or being the hero. Oh dear, bit of a babble! But better out then in !! Hope everyone is having a good weekend, I will catch up on the threads and see what going on out there.
