    Hi everyone!

    I started SF today..was supposed to start CD but the idea of not being able to eat a meal in the evenings worried me so decided to go for slimfast.

    I have roughly 4stone to lose, and ideally would love to lose this by June/July :)

    Would love to hear sucess stories from others, and words of wisdom ;)

    Goodluck to everyone on this, and i hope i can stick to this too xoxox

    Hey welcome and good luck with your target. Join the January challenge and pledge an amount of weight you would like to lose before the end of January, it's a great motivational tool. Keep posting xx

    Hi and welcome frumpy!
    When are you starting SF?
    GL with it and my advice is to stick it out, the first few days can be hard but once you get used to it, you get used to it (if you know what I mean!:confused:)
    Let us know how you're doing:D:D:D

    Hi Frumpy!

    I have been on sf since 5th jan and have lost 11lbs! So it can be done.

    Have a look at the before and after photo thread - very inspirational!

    Good luck with your weightloss, and visit the forum often for support! :D

    Hi ladies

    Thanks so much for all of your replys! I feel so inspired :)

    Im soo determined to do this! I just ate my dinner, had scrambled egg with mushrooms and sweetcorn. I know that sounds horrid lol but it wasnt! ;)

    Well done on your losses, and hopefully i will be postiing mine soon!

    What does your eating consist of throughout the day btw? I have a shake for breakfast (but with one scoop as i find it too rich) and a choc caramel snck bar for lunch, then a dinner with little or no carbs.

    Hi Frumy!

    I started SF a week ago, and I am actually finding it ok, a bit tired and grumpy around 5pm but feel great once I have had my evening meal. I usually just have

    9am (ish) - Slimfast Smoothie or Shake
    1pm - Slim Fast Shake
    3.30pm Slimfast Snack Bar or SF cheese bites
    6.30pm ish - Low Calorie Meal

    It seems to be working fine, however, weekends are a bit tougher, and since I love a lie in, only had one shake both days, but added ice and half a banana and made a smoothie! It works brilliantly, and makes you feel so much fuller! You should prob eat a bit more than you have been, or you will make yourself feel ill, then sicken yourself from the diet and not want to continue! Set a January Challenge, mine is 8llbs, 5llbs down and 3llbs to go! :)

    On the side of the shake bottles and on the website it says what u should be eating, and that'll give u the kcals and nutrients etc u need.. I do
    breakfast; cereal bar
    lunch; shake
    afternoon; snack bar of fruit
    dessert; low fat dessert or snack bar...

    Well done with the jogging! I hate jogging, I couldn't jog to the car lol!! I tried in the gym on the running machine but no matter what bra I wear my boobies get sore lol! They're too heavy! I do everything else at the gym tho, other than the running machine!

    Good luck everyone, hope uve all ahd a good day

    I lost 5lbs this week so Im guessing that splitting my 600 cal meal into two meals through the day is still working. YAY Lets see what this week does....
