and I can't find my original thread . Still not to worry. My counsellor started me on 3 packs and a meal as she said all her ladies do that. So that is what I have been doing and I am afraid after being away for a few days on holiday the photo's I have just looked at are awful ! So I am going to start today with just the three packets as most of you seem to be doing . I make mine up as smoothies i.e added crushed ice and 700 ml of water. That way it makes sure I drink more water. Some of you may remember that I have a problem not drinking - just don't like any sort of drink :sigh:. Strange I know but that's me. I started off at 15st 10 and am now at 15st and am 5'8". Just 10lbs loss over a period of 7/8 weeks??? I am not sure when I even started as I don't have a card and have only been measured once. I'll check it out when I go and get my 5 min weigh in next week :sigh:. I really wanted to have lost 2st by 23rd June but that is not going to happen I know. I'll try to keep in contact with this forum as you all know what you are doing and I need the help to get me on the right track instead of wasting my money and staying like a large balloon for the whole of the summer!
