    Ok here goes...
    On the advice of Lottie I have started a little diary on here to record my thoughts during my lighterlife plan.
    Im currently on day 5 and Im not really so hungry.
    Im finding the food packs gross though and the soups actually make me heave if I attempt to eat them! :eek:
    So I went for a mid-week weigh in yesterday after 3 days on the plan and had lost 7.1lbs so quite happy but I was in a foul mood yesterday! :mad:

    It was probably the carb withdrawals hun - makes me vile!!!

    Because I do CD, have never tried the LL food packs, so sorry I can't give you any advice on that one. I can't eat the CD soups either, they make me heave as well - all I ever have are the tetra packs and the bars. I just need to grab one out of the fridge and then can forget about it until the next time.

    Anyway good luck hun!!

    fitz Lovin it !!! :)

    Hi
    I did LL for 7 months and although I did have the soups, I made them into bread style things in microwave - much better that way, - one thing I did find helpful though was to have the vanilla and chocolate shakes in halves. Half a pkt with coffee granules - hot water, blender - yummy - kept me goin plus felt like I was havin so much more. Keep up the good work though - it wil be worth it - I lost 7 1/2 stone in 7 months on the plan.

    Im getting weighed tonight so dont want top drink loads of water before I go or I will weigh loads!
    I had to go to bed with a hot water bottle last night for the first time since I was a kid cos I was frezzing!

    Everyone who has tried on a wedding dress has felt the same way, so do not be hard on yourself. You are doing great!

    When are you getting married btw?

    Hi pixie,

    Congratlations on your 14lbs. off!!! One whole stone:D Excellent!

    I was wondering was it really tummy cramps you had or could it be that you were feeling your tummy muscles working again?

    Try drinking some warm water and see if that helps the next time you feel uncomfortable.

    Your doing very well and I can see how determined you are.

    Love Mini xxx
