I just wanted to share my before and after pics to keep people believing that it can be done. Pictures are in my signature. Minimins has been a life saver for me whilst going through my journey and I wanted to say thanks to everyone who has helped and supported me. I will be hanging around here for sure! I started Exante mid January this year and within 4 months, I had lost 5 stones. I am still doing the healthy / simple solution to lose my last 11lbs, but I don't mind how long that takes me, as I already feel SOOOO much better for having shed the weight. I was lucky enough to have an "after" photo shoot with exante, as i am going to be used as a case study. It was great fun. I know that VLCDs are not for everyone, but I have to say that it has been so good for me because it's fast and safe. There is no going back for me now! Good luck everyone whatever diet you are doing. You can do it!!!
