    Hi all,

    After a month off plan at my GP's instruction I've finally been given the all-clear to start back again :D

    I lost 10lb in my first week, then popped a disc in my back and ended up taking loads of super strength painkillers, anti-inflammatories, tablets to help me sleep etc, so my doc said that CD wasn't really suitable while I was taking that amount of meds as I needed "more" in my stomach. I've eaten for England in the past month - OH has been away working and I have to stay off my feet as much as I can, so it's been mostly ping meals and takeaways :eek:

    Anyway, I've been to the hospital today and the consultant has said that losing some weight will help ease the pressure on my back. I told him I'd been on CD and he said he can't see a reason I can't do it now, as long as I take my meds at the same time as a meal.

    I've rung my CDC tonight, am going to see her tomorrow and get started again straightaway. Wish me luck :D

    Thanks ladies, it's good to be back. Everyone seems to be doing really well, and that's giving me a huge buzz that I can do it too.

    Yeesh Tasha, how well are you doing? How many charms is it now? Steve has promised me a treatment at a spa near us for every stone I lose, plus a spending spree at Meadowhall when I get to target. He may live to regret it cos I've got a lot of time on my hands at present and am drawing up a list of shops I want to visit. He can come along to carry the bags and cough up the cash lol ;)

    Day 1 hasn't been bad so far - I've had 1.5l of water, plus a warm banana tetra for brekkie. The only prob is that I keep needing to go for a wee... not good with a bad back :D

    Have a good day

    Good morning, how is everybody?

    Well I managed to get through day 1 without nibbling :D, and have woken up with a bit of a headache and that strange taste in my mouth. Ketosis is hopefully on its way :cross: How are any other new starters/restarters doing?

    Good luck Tasha, and anybody else, for today's WI.

    I'm now officially in ketosis :D I don't know if it's because of the amount of painkillers I'm taking for my back, but this time round I don't seem to have suffered quite as badly getting there, though I'm absolutely freezing.

    I've managed to get through the first couple of days 100% SS but my challenge is from tomorrow til Monday as my OH is home between jobs and he loves his home cooked food... unfortunately he can't cook himself :sigh: At present I'm feeling pretty strong, but I'm worried that I'll let myself down.

    I'm trying to focus on the fact that after this weekend he'll probably be flying straight between jobs, so it could be mid-April before he's home again and if I stick 100% I can be a couple of stones lighter by then. I hate it when he's away so long, but this time I'm quite excited as well. OMG that sounds awful, wanting him not to be here - I do miss him, honest :eek:

    So far today, I've had my warm banana tetra (with extra water to thin it down), plus 2.5l of water. I'm going to have my chicken and mushroom soup soon and a hot choc mint later on.

    Hope everybody is having a good day
