Hi Shaz,I hope your first week flys by for you. You will start to feel much better when you have had your first weigh in. Make sure you drink plenty of water and you may need a few early nights.It WILL be worth the effort...honest.I started at about the same weight as you and believe me it does come off nice and quick. Good luck :D
Thanks for the positive comments xx I have gained a new family and will hopefully gain have a new waist line ( for the first time )

Welcome Shaz.

The first week is the hardest but if you can stick with it then your first WI will make it all worthwhile.

Pop on here whenever things get too much and there is bound to be someone on here who can keep your mind off it and focused.

Good luck.

Hi yeah, - I'm on day 6 and days 1-4 where hell, almost impossible.
I'm 33 - woz 16 stone last Thursday, currently 15.4. Yesturday was an amazing day. I couldn't believe i felt great, no longer tierd, hungry and moody. Really cheery and chirpy and losing weight. Got a way to go but for the first time ever i think i'm going to do it.

Best of luck

Hang on in there

Hi Shaz

I sympathise with you as I felt the same on day 1 & 3. Honestly if you can bear with it, it is so worth it when you get on that scales. I am on day 9 and lost 9 pound in the first week. Started at 14.8 and am now 13.13! So chuffed to get into the 13's. And your clothes will start fitting better and you just have a feeling of well being. I added coffee and ice to the vanilla shake and crushed ice and had that one for 'brekkie' (very refreshing) and I finf peppermint tea a god-send. Also let the peppermint tea go cold and make your choc shake with also with some crushed ice and it is very drinkable. Just some tips for variations!
Best of luck and jump on here when you need help - I have found it a god-send.
Luv trish

welcome, I am also 37 and have a disability that makes me feel 73! (fibromyalgia) so i am with you there.

stick to this diet and you will see incredible results. i am hoping that reducing my weight will help my hip, back and neck pain. it is the best thing we can do to help our bodies.

good luck.

ps, week one was hell for me, but it is worth sticking too.
Aw Bea congratulations on your baby boy.
Am currently on day 3 still a bit hungry but not constantly thinking of food well ...... the weather is beautiful and our barbeque is sat in the garden !!! But is redundant at the moment will have to stay that way. I dreamt about bacon sandwiches last night but then the pain in my hip woke me up to remind me why the weight loss is needed!!!
Anyway many thanks for all your support and the weight loss photos are amazing ... Much Love x
