Hi everyone I just saw the diary page and i thought it might be a good way to keep track of my own weight loss journey. I was banded 5 years ago and weighed 21st 7lb..i was desperate and it was a useful tool for a while. Jump forward 5 years and i am unbanded due to complications and after finding Exante i thought i would give it a try. No point doing any other diet than VCLD as my love affair with f**d would not allow me any success. I am 4 days in and have stuck to the rules rigidly ...I have an awful taste in my mouth and no hunger so i am hoping that i have found the elusive Ketosis.. Not sure what that is exactly but have read similar side effects such as bad breath can be a symptom... I had a very near meltdown last night which is why i am here writing this. I went surfing the net to distract myself and to try and find other Exante users. And Woo Hoo i found Minimins!!! What an inspirational site for all types of dieters... Anyway less waffle..i weighed in at 15st 5lb on tuesday 12th and am going to try my hardest to resist weighing in again till the 19th.. Good luck and warm wishes to everyone !!
