    Hi-welcome to the forum
    I'm sure your CDC will advise you on what the best thing is to do about your weekend away. If you are not sure whether you could stick 100% to just having shakes, or it just wasn't practical, I'm sure that you would be able to ease into it-perhaps by having just shakes during the week, then when you are away having a small amount of chicken and salad or something before going back to just having shakes again. Your weight loss might not be as great in your first week, but you would still lose something rather than gaining.
    Good luck with your weight loss:)

    Hi Shaun, I'm a newbie too. I saw my CDC today but for various reasons am planning on starting SS on Monday. I have a good 4 stone to lose :( This seems like a good plan for me because losing 2lb or so a week on a convential diet is disheartening and feels like it will take forever.

    Good luck!

    You can make your ticker in Ticker Factory. Then you need to go to User CP at the top left of the page, then edit signature. You post the code that Ticker Factory give you into your signature and save it. Voila!:D

    Welcome to the wonder that is CD, I am sure you will be in to it in no time and you'll see the weight literally dropping off! I saw a friend for the first time in 3 months the other day and he looked at me and said OMG if the polar ice caps melt as quickly as you have we are in deep Sh!t :D

    It's not easy at times but stick at it because it's sooooo worth it, good luck guys xx

    Hi Shaun, If you start immediately and are in ketosis by midweek you may feel so good by next weekend you may be able to stick to sole source - go for it and good luck

    Thanks for all the inspirational comments, wow you guys have done brilliantly!!

    Shaun I'm with you I can't wait to get started now and even thought of starting tomorrow instead of Monday but I have all my stuff now, ready for Monday and the right quantities to last me until my appt with my CDC the following Monday.

    The cost for me was £47 ish because I'm tall I have 4 packs a day but to be honest if I can cope I'm going to drop it to 3 packs the following week because of the cost. (£35 for 3 a day). I'm only just over 5ft 8" so only just qualify for 4 anyway.

    Just want to get started now, I hate being fat :(

    well its the last day today of being 'normal' lol, also today is the biggest i will ever be :) CDC coming at 10am tomorrow, i dont know if i should have one last binge day, having food in will be tough (i see my kids every week!) if that was not the case then the cupboards would be empty lol
