Ready to get rid of 5 stone!

#1
HI, im new to this site and also vlcd's.
This is my first day on ss and have found it alot easier than
I thought it would be, thank god!
This is the first time in my life that I have been overweight
(im 27) and it is awful. I basically put on 5 stone in
Just over a year and a half, due to medication.
I have tried everything but with no success, but after
reading some of the truly inspirational stories on
here and how you all support eachother, I have never
felt so confident!
Here's to us all getting our lives back
XxX

Hi Leah, welcome. Hope your first day went well.
Slow but surely wins the race. Stick with it the first week is the hardest.
Drink plenty of water, the more you drink the more you shrink :D

Hi, well done on completing your first day. I'm starting tomorrow so I hope I can manage it too - never done a VCLD before.

Wishing you lots of luck - we can do this!

Best of luck...stick with it. I put on 4 stone in six months a couple of years ago due to steroid medication..basically I blew up like a balloon. Tried slimming world, weight watchers and atkins with limited and very slow success and eventually gave up after a few weeks. Exante works..it can be tough going at times, last week I had a wobble but back on track now. The results speak for themselves...and this site is a great way to get support and inspiration :)

Well,the start of day 2 and still feeling ok. Already drank
lots of water, dont feel hungry at all and no side effects yet!
My plan is to have my first pack at lunch time, then second
At tea, then my bar in the evening.
I start to get really hungry in the evening, so hopefully this
Should keep me going!
Cant believe how motivated I feel! Just so happy not to have
to calorie count or portion control, it's all just there ready for me.
Cant wait for weigh in next thursday.x.

THanks guys.x.
Start of day three, been 100% TS so far and feeling good. Had a party last night
and while everyone tucked into sausage and mash, I sat eating my soup!
It was hard at first but the soup was actually ok and combined with water
I felt stuffed!
Heres to 100% TS today! .x.

Day 5, brrr feel cold! Still 100% st and feeling fine. So excited for thursday wi, hope everyone else is doing good.x.

Day 6 100% ts, no cheats! WI tomorrow, very excited. I have also tried all the flavours of shakes/bars/soups and like them all, happy days:)
Only drinking about 2.5 litres of water a day, but thats not including the cups of coffee/green tea which adds up to roughly 5 to 7 cups, so hopefully thats enough.
I have become a bit bunged up, but going to take a couple of dulcolax, that should do the trick.
Cant believe I have lasted thus long with no cheating, first time ever!
Hope your all doing ok aswell my fellow soon to be skinny minnies .x.

I'm back in the zone this week, 100% TS and looking forward to WI tomorrow :D
Not a single cheat has passed these lips (for a change :p) and I'm not hungry. Have been really thirsty tho and bunged-up like you. I found senna was enough for me last week, dulcolax was too harsh.

Here's to both of us, happy peeps tomorrow ;) xx
