Hi, I have just completed my first week and I have lost 11 pounds:D

I am finding that I am very lethargic....is this normal??

Hopefully week two will be a bit easier and maybe I will stop dreaming about food, but that said I have not been hungry at all.

Any tips on how to avoid/control this terrible bad breath?

I have been reading the threads over this last week and they have definitely helped me.

Welcome Mikey, and well done on a great loss!!!

You may feel lethargic for a few weeks, but it does pass....
The breath is foul isn't it???!! lol... You can use listerine (original) mouthwash, and your chemist should have Nu Phar breath strips you can buy (£1.49 per pack in my chemist)

If that doesn't work you need a mask so you don't offend everyone you talk to!! lol

Good luck with LT

Well dun and welcome. I drink water to help with the breath but you can also buy the strips at the chemist they help loads too.

Good luck

Thanks Lydia,
I did buy some of those strips tonight, hopefully that will help and I will raid the bathroom cupboard of the mouthwash and take that to work. All tips gratefully received.

First week is most differcult, but I found boredom a problem. I have never been hungry just missed the socialising during meals.

Bad breath, do not breath :) - oh I mean on other people.

Thanks Moo and Big Kev,
This is the first day that I have not had a headache, and I can find the way to the toilet blindfolded!

I am like you Big Kev I miss the social side especially after work when the kids are all eating and want to know why daddy isn't. But it is because of them that I need to make this temporary sacrifice, which in the big scheme of things is nothing really.

It is also nice to know I am not alone on this journey....

Well done a fab loss in your 1st week! 11lbs is fantastic. You'll get into a rhythm with the diet soon enough, it'll be second nature. :) xxx
