Good luck nervous....I know how you feel, I felt like that last week and put off starting for 2 days until I felt that I had the right mind-set. In fact I had LT for breakfast and lunch on Monday then had some really tragic news that a friend had died and the first thing that I did was go and make some toast!
Feeling good now though, in ketosis and looking forward to my weigh in, not sure whether to post it today though or weigh on Wednesday which will be a week, decisions, decisions.....I suppose that Monday is a good weigh day....
Sandra - How sad about your friend Tragic circumstances I know, but it just goes to show how tied in our emotions are to food! Well done on getting into ketosis, and on your first week's weight loss
Missy - Oops didn't see your reply before I set off, but thankfully not having seen it hasn't delayed my start Well done on the 9lb off - yay!
So So Hopeful - Fantastic weight loss! You must be thrilled
Size 10 Bikini (love that user title!) - Thanks for the welcome
Jaynie - Yay to 9lb off
Pleased to say all went well at the pharmacy and I have my week's supply of packs. Can't say I'm overly thrilled about having to do this diet - all those years of scoffing and now it feels like a punishment lol. I am in the right mindset to do it though and I'm sure I'll feel more thrilled about it after the first couple of weeks and the rewards from the scales No messing with packs, just going to mix them up, get them down and forget about them. Well, that's the plan anyhow! lol.
Must go and have a little read around the forum now Thanks again for the welcomes
thanks jayne yes im thrilled on my loss so far, but still have a long way to go. the first few days are hard but once ketosis sets in youll be flying. if you feel that you are struggling come on here and there is always someone to offer support. good luck x x x
Ooo, good luck for your first day too Vicky We can hold each other's hand! lol
So So Hopeful - I'm going to hang on very tightly for this first week and take inspiration from others now and in the future.
Well, first (strawberry) shake down, and it was fine In fact it was a HUGE relief this morning to wake up and not have to worry about what to eat, and for the whole overeating, guilt cycle to start all over again for yet another day
I work Wed-Fri each week, so hopefully the distraction of that will carry me through the difficult days and into ketosis for the weekend. Just plan on taking it easy really for a couple of weeks until my body gets used to things, and then will get back to my usual gym routine (body pump class twice a week, followed by half hour on treadmill - only incline walking, I can only dream about being able to run at the moment lol - and then hour on treadmill once a week, so 3 sessions altogether).
