    Hi guys,

    Well I have lurked on here long enough now, it's time to get down to business. Today is my first day on CD although I have done LL before. The longest I have ever been on a VLCD is 8 weeks and I lost 3 stones :D . Sadly I fell off the wagon and put it all back on :sigh: :eek: but I have mangaged to lose a stone low carbing since February which I am pleased about.:)

    Well let me tell you a little about me. I turned 35 a few days ago. I had a really fun b'day which I am still trying to recover from. I am happily single (for now:rolleyes: ), no children and I live in South London. I work for the NHS in admininstration, but I have a secret passion to become a writer someday.

    I have always been overweight, but I have always been told that I am one of those people who "carry their weight well" :rolleyes:. I have never been one to hide away in clubs or any other social gathering I really do love to dance and have a good time. But I know that I am very obese and risk having some serious health complications later on in life, or worse still cutting my life short.
    Like most people food has become my crutch throughout life and really want to break the cycle. I have become so inspired by some of the journeys on here it's amazing. I really want to be an inspiration to others too.

    I love it here on MMs as I know I will get the support and encouragement I need to complete this journey. My family are great and they too have vowed to support me, but as most of them don't really have a weight issue I know it may not be that easy for them to get their heads around the "no eating" regime.

    Today has been a good day for me so far, I have drunk 2 litres of water (I'm aiming for 4 litres :eek:) and I have cleared my diary and taken a few days off work so I can hibernate and get into the swing of things. Day 2 is always a bad day for me but I am feeling optimistic that I won't give into my chatterbox.

    Anyway I have gone on enough now. I will check back in later and let you know how I am doing.

    Take care peeps xx
    Lisa

    Hi Soul

    Welcome back to the land of VLCDing. From past experience you will know that the first few days are the worst, once you've got through them you will be flying. Good idea about taking a few days off work. Good luck hun, onward and downwards.

    Minimins is, as you have discovered, a fantastic place for support, motivation and ideas. I couldn't have managed without it for many varying reasons. Keep posting!

    Your story is similar to mine. Started on LL then moved to CD - lost 4stone and then put 2stone back on. Back on CD SS and today is day 2 - so looking forward to losing along side you!

    Good luck!

    Feeling tipsy

    Hi guys,

    Well I made it through Day 1 :clap: and woke this morning with a burst of energy-surely I can't be in ketosis already :thinking2: ! I've decided not to check until I am on day 4 as it normally takes me 3 days to get into it and I don't want to be disheartened incase I'm not.

    Anyway it took me a while to get the first glass of water down my gullet, and boy did I pay for it. I came over all lightheaded like I was tipsy but once I did the first litre of water and had a shake I was fine. :)

    I had a sneaky peek at the scales today :scale: . I know I shouldn't have, :whoopass: and I'm not usually a scale hopper but it did show that I had dropped a few pounds already which did make me smile. But I have now banished the scales to my friend's home for the time being.

    Oh it's such a nice day today, I think I'll sit in the garden and read my book in a bit :read: . I would go for a walk but I am constantly needing the loo at the moment! :rolleyes:
