    Hi everyone

    I have ordered my first months supply of Exante which will be with me tomorrow so I am planning on starting the diet on Thursday. My first question is when should I do my first weigh in? Should I do it tomorrow sometime or actually on Thursday when I start? I don't have scales at home so I'm planning on getting weighed each week in my local Boots.

    I have about 8 stone to lose, is this achievable doing exante?

    I really need this diet to work because I have tried every other diet going and am sick of being a fatty!!

    Hello, welcome and good luck :D

    Don't think it will make any difference when you weigh - go with what is most convenient :)

    I have a similar amount to lose - and yes, it is absolutely possible!

    The first few days are the hardest - stick with it and it gets so much easier

    Use the support here- I find it really helpful :)

    Start a diary - really helps I think

    Hi Pipsta

    As Darcy15 said the first few days are the hardest so stay focused because it does work, just ensure you drink plenty of water otherwise you will get headaches which is the sign you have not drank enough.

    I have just started again after putting my weight back on but on my last Exante journey I lost 9st 3lbs in 27 weeks so it is possible, my problem was I didn't learn how to beat my bad eating habits so fell into old ways and put my weight back on.

    Im on day 3 now but was in ketosis within 48 hrs and have already lost 9lbs in that time.

    Also I found that the Marigold Bouillon is a good drink to have between Exante Products as for me it staves of the urge for food.

    Good luck for your 1st week and on your Exante Journey .....

    I personally only ever weigh first thing in the morning before I've even had a sip of water and after I've been to the loo, oh and stark naked!! As you don't have scales at home, that's probably not achievable or advisable! All I would say is that I would try replicate the conditions as much as possible for every weigh-in i.e. same time, same clothes, same amount to have eaten or drunk before you weigh. If you've managed to down 2 litres of water before you weigh on one day and the next weigh in all you've had is a coffee then that could make a difference on the scales, albeit a temporary/artificial one. It's just that this diet is quite hardcore and the reward for all your self-discipline each week is the result on the scales, so you want to give yourself every chance to see a loss every week. Can't you buy a cheap set of scales from Tesco or somewhere? I got mine in Lidl and they were only about £8. I don't know how much it is to weigh in Boots, I assume you have pay something; it might work out more cost effective in the long run if you have 8 stone to lose. Good luck with it all. It really does get easier.
