    Hi I am new to this and am on my 5th day of ss.
    I am surprised at how good I have been, but I have food on my brain right now lol
    I got weighed after three days as I wanted to change my weigh in day and lost 6 1/2 lbs, which I am very pleased with.
    The side effects havent been to bad maybe because I am drinking over 4 liters of water each day and peeing for england lol
    I know if I dont do this I will be a fatty for the rest of my life.
    I would just like to thank you all for posting your pics and showing newbies like me that it is achievable.
    the encouragements you all give is wonderful.
    I have been having a nosey at all the posts before I decided to join you all.
    I am happy now to be part of this community and hope to get to know you all well.

    Hi Choc,

    Well done so far.

    I am on day four now and I can't believe it is so easy! I wish I had done this ages ago.

    I have realised just how many food adverts there are on tv and each one makes me think about eating. No wonder I was a muncher. I am now weeing at almost every commercial break so I won't see them as often!

    I seem to have lost 6lbs in 3 days. Yippee!!

    Going to try a muffin for breakfast now.

    Hey Choc,

    I keep smelling food too! Where is it coming from? lol

    There is a thread at the top of the CD section on 'Recipes for foodpacks'. I tried the muffin and it was good. Something to chew on lol. I tried the crisps too but found them really salty. It is nice to have something different to try though cos I am not keen on the soups!

    Hi I'm new too. On day 6 and going strong but still quite obsessed with food! Cooking for my kids is torture. I'm really constipated despite drinking loads. Any tips?

    Hi irisheyes and well done to you for getting this far. If today (Sunday) is your 6th day then we are on the track lol
    My CDC gave me a pot of fibre 89 to help with constipation. Perhaps you should speak to him/her about it.
    Good Luck with your weight loss anyway

    Hi Irisheyes, welcome and well done for getting to Day 6!

    As Choc says try Fibre 89, I have it in my soup every day and so far no problems. I know others also use physillium husks which you can also add to soups.
