    Sorry for my ignorance, but what is 'TFR'?

    I'm doing All About W8 - 14lbs off in 2 weeks and finding it really easy to stick to.

    Hope you have great results with your diet. And well done you for stopping the fags :)

    Slim & Save 4 Per Day VLCD
    its same product as slim & save (my friend had a week from them around 3 weeks ago and she showed me her stuff its same as mine) but they are more expensive. they do 50 for £88 + £4 delivery so works out at £92 for 50 Slim & save do 56 for £74 with free delivery (my friend now switched to s&s)

    Hi Jellbell - yes it's perfectly normal, but it is really important to keep up your water intake to make sure it doesn't become a problem. I drink a minimum of 3 litres a day, usually 4 and go every second day since being on this TFR.

    Good luck for your first weigh-in, sounds as though you've got things sussed and adapting the plan to suit your needs.

    Did you know that if you're desperate for something to actually chew, that you can make a really nice muffin out of the chocolate shakes :)

    Hi Jellbell, I'm really enjoying your posts - Yes, fizzy water is the new Bacardi & Coke for me!!!!
    I tremember on Lipotrim needing to get a fibre supplement but it has to be a non-digestible one -ask your TFR provider what they recommend maybe. Plenty of water should help too.
    Must admit, I feel good today, probably the most energy I've had in months. I'm always afraid to get too optimistic though because it can change so quickly for me! POSITIVE THINKING though!!! Will weigh myself on Wednesday to see how I've done. :)

    To make a muffin, you must mix your chocolate shake mix with 2 or 3 tablespoons of hot water until you get a really thick gloopy paste then blast it in the microwave for 40 seconds. I get best results using a small teacup, though you can use a small ramekin. If it's still a wee bit wet in the middle, just keep giving it 10 second bursts in the micro until it sets on top. Eat it right away. Also, remember to up your water intake to compensate for the water that is missing if you had had it as a shake.

    If you're still having probs with the toilet, add psyllium husks to your shakes. They are non soluble and pass right through you so won't affect the weigh loss :)
