    Hi Everyone

    I started LLT 30/04/2010... so Im just ending day 3... belly a little rumbly but otherwise Ive found it easy so far... apart from Im always thinking what food will I have for brekkie, lunch & dinner.... but I think thats habit.

    So far so good.. also I like the support the forum offers.. its nice to meet ppl who are on the same path as yourself.. :)

    I hope I get to know you all better,

    Gemma

    Hi there, Well done, the first few days are the worst by far. Im into my 3rd week now. Ive lost 12lb in 2 weeks which Im really thrilled with. I just cant put myself in a position of eating with other people yet, far too hard at the moment. I do keep thinking about food all the while but Im determined.
    Good luck. Jayne xx

    Yours will be just as fabulous Gemma! One bit of advice, but obviously everyone needs to do what is right for them, is to avoid going out to dinners and things in the early days, it only makes things harder. When you are more secure and in ketosis (you really wont be hungry) then head out as much as you want. I even ended up spending 10 days in Paris on complete abstinence, out to dinner every night, lol I just took packs and asked for hot water to mix soups with.

    You will get there, you are over the worst now.

    Hi Gemma,
    Stick with it. It gets easier. As Jez said you will find out what works for you.
    Food is always going to be there for all of us. It's being in control of it rather than the other way round that we are learning through LL.
    Good luck with the rest of your journey. You will learn so much about yourself.

    Hello Gemma
    Don't despair. I can assure you if you stick to the programme 100% and drink the water as advised, the weight will definitely come off.
    You don't show how much you have to lose.
    Discuss with your LLCifyou feel disappointed. On any other diet you'd probably be quite pleased with that loss in 2 weeks.
    Stick with it. It WILL happen.

    Gmac:- You should definetly stick with it, my wife is on LL too and was disheartened with a few 3lbs losses (made worse when I had some larger losses in those weeks)

    She's now lost over 2 stone in 6 weeks or so and lost 6lbs last week.

    Good luck
