    ... in fact more of a defector from LighterLife! A change in my personal circumstances (read: split from partner :() means that I've had to prioritise.
    I've completed nearly 6 weeks and lost 19 lb in total abstinence with LL, and as losing another 2 stone is still a very high priority I decided that I'd continue on VLCD with Exante. I have enough LL packs for tomorrow, then my Exante supplies should arrive (I HOPE!!) on Tuesday.
    Oh, I'm Lucy by the way :D

    Hi Lucy

    Welcome. You already know the drill as far as the packs go and you can use this place as your LLC ;)

    Aw, thanks for the warm welcome, I really appreciate it :) The support from a forum like this in invaluable, talking to people who know what we're on about! Only a few close friends of mine know about me being on LL, and though they're really supportive it's hard for anyone not doing this to understand it.
    I guess I do know the drill with the packs, it will just be a case of getting used to 3 instead of 4. Looking forward to a couple of new flavours :)

    Hey Lucy - aww, just read about the split. So sorry.

    I broke up with the man who I thought was the love of my life back in July, and I think part of my reason for getting the rest of the weight off now is all to do with claiming a bit of myself back - taking control again. Still finding things hard - heartbreak, quite simply, sucks.

    Well done on your losses so far and keep posting! :) xx

    Hello Lucy - welcome & good luck.

    Try splitting the bars into two small meals while you get used to the change in routine?

    That's a good idea herewego - I will do that, see how I get on. I'm in quite a routine with the times of my packs at the moment so that would be a big help.

    Hi to the other "newbies" :)

    Update - Well, I had my last LL pack last night and I've had a message to say my Exante packs will be here between 11.33 and 12.33 today. So extra coffee for me this morning and I'll just have a late brunch!! Looking forward to trying some new packs, just to keep myself busy this morning now! :D

    Crikey that's precise! :D

    Hope your packs arrived ok. What did you think of your first Exante pack(s)? I have to say I wasn't that keen following the LL packs, but they have grown on me and the losses are definitely enough to keep me on track :)

    All present and correct, just after 11.30, so I managed to not turn to f**d while I waited. I had the banana first, managed to get it down but it's definitely going to need a couple of sweeteners next time! I loved the tomato & basil soup, and the toffee nut and raisin bar was delish. So day 1 has been fine. Not sure if I'm looking forward to the other shakes but I guess I'll get used to them :)
    I've been trying to sort out the mortgage today - my sums just aren't quite adding up at the moment! It's quite stressful right now and I'm glad not to be thinking about eating.

    Changeover complete...

    ... I feel like a proper Exante-r now, having done 5 days and tried all the flavours. The ones I wasn't sure about were definitely better second time around (with the help of some Splenda!), and going from 4 packs to 3 hasn't been the struggle I thought it might be.

    Having bouillion has been a great addition too :)

    Hope everyone's having a good weekend, and that this week's newbies aren't finding it too hard.

    :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Ok now I've got used to the different packs.
    You'll have a great Wednesday then! I'm weighing on a Tuesday morning - funny how I get excited about weighing now :rolleyes:
    It's nice to see those numbers going down rather than up :)

    Hi Spyro! You're doing really well, good for you for not letting last week upset the apple cart - bl***y TOTM!! Two lots of carb withdrawal = nasty.
    I've got my weigh in tomorrow too :D
    How was Lipotrim? Whose packs do you prefer? I must admit it took a few days to get used to the Exante shakes as LighterLife ones are much sweeter, but I'm fine with them now. Just a means to an end really.
    Good luck tomorrow - hope to see a nice minus number. Lucy :) x
