    Hi, New to all this so hope I have posted correctly!!

    Ok, I know i'm jumping the gun a little as we are still in August but I am starting my journey on 2nd September and would love to hear from people starting the same time as me (as well as you experienced lot!). I am so ready for this. I know it isn't going to be easy and I am dreading the carb withdrawal side effects but I am going to see this through!
    I have decided to cut out carbs from today - as much as I can anyhow.
    Would be good to hear from anyone.

    Hi to both of you!!

    I had a banana smoothie this morning (couldn't have my usual of toast or cereal as too much carbs) and carrott and coriander soup for lunch. Don't know what to have for dinner yet though????

    I'm really looking forward to this challenge. I've just been to the hairdressers and have decided to grow my hair long too. 2009 will show a completely new 'me' - just in time for me to turn 40 in August!!!

    I'm not sure how much I weigh as I'm too scared to look but know my BMI is 31 point something. I would be very happy with 3 stone and even happier with more! How about you?

    Hi there, I start on Wednesday 3rd. I've been on slimfast for a couple of weeks whilst waiting for my class to start, just to get into the right frame of mind for meal replacements and reduced carbs. I've also been trying to increase my water intake.

    I hope I've lost a few pounds according to LLC scales when I get there next week, but think I have 3.5 to 4 stone to lose. I'll discuss goals with her when I get there. I'm looking forward to it and it'll be great to have some online buddies to talk to as we progress together.

    Hi folks,
    I have been following everyone's progress on here since I started LL at the end of Feb. I lost 31/2 stone and felt fabulous. However, during the summer, I had surgery on both feet and despite my intentions to keep going on LL, it just wasn't possible. So here I am, 10lbs heavier, but ready to start again today. September 1st and the first day back at school!
    I thought that this time I would make the journey with you all and be part of the forum instead of sitting on the fringes.
    Looking forward to getting to know you all.

    PS How do you add the ticker thingies?

    Hi to everyone!

    My meeting is tomorrow so I officially start Wednesday. Can't wait to start after nearly 2 months of waiting! Weird isn't it that I am looking forward to not eating?

    Well the no carbs didn't really work out over the weekend. I guess it is knowing that I wont be able to eat these things in a few days. I have decided though that I must do this for today and tomorrow and I am also going to up my water intake for the next couple of days too.

    Good luck to anyone starting today!!!

    I just want to say a big GOOD LUCK to those of you (us!) starting this week. I'm so excited I can't believe it.

    I got a lovely embossed book to use as my diary at the weekend. The aim is that it will be kept out as it looks so nice and it will encourage me to write in it and return to it to review my goals and dreams when things are getting a bit hard.

    I'll be checking into this thread all week, so let me know how you're getting on.

    Rachel

    Thanks Catznolan, I shall give that a go.
    Survived the first day back at school, although my feet are VERY sore. Only had time for one soup so far today.
    Best of luck to everyone starting this week. Just like you Raebe, I love fancy stationery. I have found some lovely leather ones in TKMaxx and treat myself to a new one each term.

    Good luck everyone! I've been preparing myself for the last few days - I'm on my second glass of water already! My GP wouldn't sign my form so I'm off to a private doc this morning. Class tomorrow eve to pick up my stuff then hopefully able to start Thursday. Caz - I'm feeling the same - excited about not eating!! :eek:How weird is that?!!!
