    So the day has finally come. I have been putting it off for 4 years but no more excuses. After seeing my before pictures that I got my hubby to take last night , I am more determined than ever to get to goal in the new year.

    I just had my first strawberry shake. Not bad I must say.

    For lunch I will have my bar and green tea and then for dinner I will have another shake. I think I will half the bar and have a little tonight when I normally reach for the chocolate to distract myself...

    Anyway... So far so good. I'm feeling positive and I'm going to stay logged in to keep focused.:)

    Best of luck on Day 1 Maybabe. Nice to see another Irish soul on here. Well done having your day planned out, that's the secret, and at the risk of beating a drum you will hear many times, try and get as close to a max of 4 litres of water into you in small amounts spread evenly over the day. Works for me avoiding the dreaded headaches. ;)

    Is feidir linn, :D

    Good luck on your first day - like Connor said planning your days out really helps, i always get all my shakes and bars out in the morning to avoid me looking for food later. Try and keep busy too, it's when i find myself at a loose end i start to look for food :)

    Oh and yes, drink drink drink! I don't think i've ever managed 4 litres, i'd start leaking :) But aim for 2 plus your shakes and you should be good! x

    Hi maybabe well done for starting and good luck :D

    I'm on Day 3 today and have been finding it ok so far - apart from this morning when I had a very upset tummy :(

    I've been having the shakes hot to warm me up and surprisingly I find the strawberry one is the nicest. Also having the soups which I think are lovely.

    Hope you get through today okay - I just keep reminding myself that it's my choice to do this, I could stop at any time but I will be disappointed in myself.

    Thanks everyone.I will try get 4 litres or near enough into me lol.
    I have decided to paint the house to keep my mind off food.
    I was in the shop earlier and nearly
    Forgot and went to buy some lunch! :0 whoops!!

    So I'm staying in doors and keeping myself very busy.

    I'm off now to have my green tea and half of my bar.

    Best of luck lindopski! Stay in touch and we can help each other.
    I have a headache already :( better get more water into me.

    My pack only has strawberry, vanilla and chocolate shakes. I'm dreading the chocolate and vanilla. I'll order banana the next time I prefer strawberry and banana tbh.
    But I will heat them up like others have recommended so hopefully it won't be too bad lol.

    Hi ditzen. Yes I would love that. How are you finding it so far?
    I have seen alot of people heat the chocolate shakes and they taste much better?I'll give it a go and see.

    Yay! There's a few of us starting today.:)

    I have to say I'm really hungry now. Going to boil a
    Kettle and drink a few hot glasses of water to keep me going. I had to take tablets for headache too. Didn't expect the headache to start already but hey no pain no gain.:)


    Am I doing it right?- is it 2 shakes per day and one bar or soup?

    Hi I'm having a shake for breakfast, bar for lunch and soup for tea. I think you can have whatever combination you want but no more than 1 bar a day, so in theory 3 shakes or 3 soups.

    Day-2

    Feeling fine this morning not too hungry yet. Just had my morning shake and made it thicker to fill me up a bit. I'm going to keep myself busy today.

    How are you all doing today? Have a good day everyone!:)

    Hi Maybabe glad to see you've made it to Day 2. I'm starting Day 4 and so far so good. Had a dodgy tummy yesterday but seems to have settled today. How are you finding the shakes? I had the banana one this morning but hot and I thought it was lush. Is this diet doing strange things to our taste buds??
