    Day 1: 2nd January 2014
    Started off with an apple &cinneman porridge for breakfast and i was literally gagging on it, didnt like it at all, ate 3/4 of the porridge.
    Was shocked how full i felt all morning, untill lunch...For lunch I had the vanilla shake... was so nice and refreshing. This also kept me feeling full all afternoon till the evening when I had the pasta carbonara and was shocked how nice that tasted too, I added a bit of salt and pepper on it for a bit of flavor. Felt fine, not hungry at all
    Day 2:
    Had the normal porridge for breakfast which tasted so sweet but so nice.. really enjoyed it. Lunch: pasta carbonara again as I enjoyed it the night before, dinner: strawberry shake, which i didnt enjoy as much as the vanilla one, maybe put a bit to much water in though.
    Day 3:
    Woke up shaking, very very hungry and a massive headache, felt so weak, then I had the porridge and after about half an hour i felt a bit better, for lunch I had the banana shake and then for dinner I decided to have a green salad with some chicken, and felt so nice eating whole food.
    Day 4:
    porridge for breakfast, spaghetti bolognaise for lunch and chocolate shake for dinner. - much better day, no headaches and no feeling dizzy, hardly feel hungry.

    Also been drinking 4 litres of water a day to keep me hydrated and when i do feel hungry I just drink water.

    So Far so good... looking forward to going on the scales on thursday morning to see how much iv lost in 1 week.

    Hey, well done on getting through the first few tough days, sounds like you're really whizzing through them. Good luck for weigh in. By the way, I love the title of your diary...made me chuckle :D I'm going to try and work on spin offs now...the sort of anorak thing I do. hmmm:
    no scone until fat's gone
    don't risk it for a biscuit (old, I know)

    Well, my personal title should read: No bread until I'm dead.

    Hey Sammi, how are you doing today? You should be proud of yourself! And remember that feeling when things get a bit tough. It's great that your hubbie is doing Exante too, how is he getting on?
    If I remember correctly, there was a commercial in the 70s for a biscuit brand that had the slogan along the lines of risk it to get a biscuit. And although that was before my time, I love all things retro and it's been a saying of mine ever since I first heard it :D I'm such a geek hehe. Might just sneakily add that to my signature...:rolleyes:

    Just re-read what I wrote.. Hubby isnt doing the exante diet he is doing healthy eating.. so still no temptations in the house.
    Day 5:
    Had porridge for breakfast - I really enjoy this porridge, i find it so sweet and filling, so lovely.
    Had chocolate shake for lunch - yummy yummy yummy
    Had the shepherds pie for dinner - #I added salt and pepper on to it for a bit more flavour and was actually very nice.

    Cant wait for weigh in day - 3 more sleeps to go :)

    Sorry haven't been on here for a few days, had a busy few days.
    Anyway the rest of my week 1 went well. I sold my apple and cinnamon porridge on eBay as I didn't like them and I brought some new shakes (Mint choc & toffee caramel), and brought the curry and 2 soups (Tomato and basil & mushroom).
    Anyways on the Thursday morning and literally ran to the bathroom... and I LOST 7 POUNDS!!! I was sooooo happy... I dont need to loose loads so Im happy with half a stone.
    My aim for next week is 3-5lbs then I would be at 10stone.
    Also Im going away to see family this weekend so Im going to have a dinner saturday and sunday but not go over the top .

    Happy Happy Happy...

    Hope your all doing well too :)

    Hi Sammi. Well done on your loss. 7lb is brilliant. That's half a stone in a week! You need to tell your husband that pizza and garlic bread isn't healthy eating!
