    Hi, I've just defected from Cambridge mainly due to the cost but also wanted to to do T/S and not have to have a small meal due to my BMI being over 40.

    I have found the shakes to be a bit nicer than c/d much creamier, Chocolate not's great but can drink it.

    I lost 18lbs on c/d but went on hols and put 10lb's on. I started exante on Thursday 1st Sept so I am still struggling through my first week. So far so good.

    I've decided after looking at so many of your inspirational posts that my new mantra is I CAN DO IT!:)

    This site is very encouraging and when i'm feeling bored - because i can't eat, it's a really great way to strengthen my resolve.

    I'll second that, you CAN do it
    I've tried a couple of times to do it 100% and failed but I really feel that this forum is going to make all the difference, I've only been on here a few days and already feel really supported
    Good luck xx

    Thank you so much.

    You are so right about this forum MsJoJo. I really felt I didn't need the c/d 'counselling' and this forum gave me the confidence to try exante.

    I need to do it for myself and not anyone else.

    I did CD before exante and I must say i am finding exante much easier . as there is more calories int the shakes and they are so much thicker I am finding I am much fuller and less hungry , the CD ones were very sweet but very thin and not filling at all in my opinion . Good luck with exante , i find my losses just as good, if not better and I love the exante soups where as I hated the CD ones .. i do miss the porridge tho !!!!

    You are so right - believe in yourself and you can do it. If you're feeling down, and tempted to eat, just have a read of some of the inspirational posts and diaries on here, or ask for some help; it makes so much difference any time of day or night to find words on here that can really help you on your journey.

    Good luck as you get started.

    You Can Do It.....welcome....

    We are the same height and pretty much same starting weight...we can keep each other focused....

    I have lost 15lbs in 4 weeks, I was disappointed at just a lb loss this week, but I am over it and onto my AAM week. Hoping it will boost me back into the good numbers again.

    Good luck on your first week

    Weighed in this morning and very pleased with 7.5lb loss.

    That's 25% more than my first week on c/d

    Thanks everyone for your support.
