    My son and I started LT one week ago. I lost 7lb in first weigh in my son lost 8lb.

    We are now well into our second week and it seems to be getting much easier, as we both seem to keep each other focused and able to talk to each other in times of weakness.

    We both done Slim Fast for 5 weeks prior to LT and found it very easy, but in that time only lost 15lbs, most probably being fluid.

    Then my sister started on LT, it was amazing how fast she lost weight, within 6 weeks she lost 29lb and dropped 3 dress sizes. So it was then I said that LT must be the answer.

    We both found it very hard the first week, with hunger pains and awful headaches, but this has now passed, I now actually feel wonderful!

    The first weigh in gave both of us a tremendous boost and the will power to carry on. I have a very long way to go and as long as I stay focused I will achieve my goal.

    The forum is great and so many people with great weight loss amounts also has given me great faith in this diet.

    Hoping I achieve another good week, my weigh in is on Monday.

    Thanks for being here folks and look forward to reading your positive thoughts.

    P.S. Trying to get hubby on LT will save me cooking LOL

    Thank you all


    Thank you all very much for the kind words and encouragement. It's been a tough week for David, my son, but I have found it much easier.

    I have found that I love the chicken soup, I mixed it with cold water then nuked in microwave for a couple of minutes, adding peppers or more chives does the trick.

    I think David will feel much better when he weighs in, as he was on cloud nine last Monday with his 8lb loss.

    Heres wishing you all great losses for your next weigh in.

    hugssssss Lynn x :)
