    I have my initial LL meeting tomorrow and I start the plan on Wednesday, so I thought i would start a thread detailing my journey through this weight loss and program. I have spent some time looking through some of the posts on this forum and have found so much hope and inspiration through what u guys are saying that i am now so looking forward to getting going on this plan and changing my life.

    Thats all for now - I'll post again after my first meeting to let u knoe how it went.

    Much love

    Thanks BL for your kind words... and Lynne, I think that would be a great thing to do to help each other along this journey.

    Just came back from the first meeting and feeling great. There was 3 of us starting the plan tonight and apparrently a few others starting in the next few weeks - fine by me to have a small group, more support etc.

    Came home and put my packs in the cupboard (like I would my normal shopping!!) Had a bath and read through my LL books. Looking forward trying my first shake in the morning - will it be nice or nasty - we shall see!

    ok - good luck Lynne... I'm sure Day 1 will be fine

    DAY 1

    Well today hasnt been too bad all in all.
    7.15 choc pack with coffee and ice
    11.00 black coffee
    1.00 Thai chilli soup (not as keen on this one as I thought i would be)
    5.00 Vanilla shake with coffee
    8.00 Shroom soup (better!) with tabaco
    lots of water - still and sparkling.

    Had to go shopping for OHs food and cooked dinner for him, in all honesty I found it hard as I knew i would - but thats ok, I need to learn to deal with being around food and not having to eat it - somethig i havnt been used to for a long time!

    gunna have a bath and get to bed.

    DAY 3
    Fine thank you my dear. Today has been alittle more difficult but only because it is my TOTM and I feel grotty from it and my usual comfort blanket for feeling like that is lots of food and booze!

    But no headache or dizzyness or any other side affects other than getting pretty hungry. I certinly do look forward to my shakes blended with ice. Choc and Vanilla work best for me, and mushroom soup with a little tabasco for lunch at work - but other than that the soups arnt really doing it for me. At my first meeting i got enough food packs for 2 soups and 2 shakes a day, but next week i will just get 5 or 6 soups for my 'packed lunch' at work and have shakes the rest of the time.

    All in all Im feeling pretty good about this whole thing.

    Hope everyone (esp Lynn! x) is ok,

    I feel for u opal, i am suffering with toothache, and i had totm last week too, but its still systems go, im not giving up, even tho food pops in y brain every 2 seconds. I do keep getting a bit emotional, but its understandable.
    A few weeks from now hopefully our spirits will be lifted

    Its funny, this morning i woke up and feel in myself i have lost some weight..i know someone will tell me off..i jumped on scales last night, and it showed a loss, and my scales never show aloss for me, unless i actually do otherwise the stay on the stone, so i was quite chuffed, but this morning i feel like i have lost round my hips and tummy area, we'll see tomorrow at weigh in, or when i get dress, we are off to the coast and off swimming today, do something active
    Best luck to you Opal,glad your feeling good, i too am today apart from this darn toothache keep waking me up in the night..must get this sorted otherwise ill end up pulling tooth out myself, like i did before and made it worse..
