    For now I'm letting my imagination take over. I'm on another planet eating small packages of space dust, just like the spacemen do. All I need to do is add water to get my tasty fuel. More importantly, all the other food on this planet is inedible.
    If only I was in space...away from all this real food. I'm sure it would be much easier. I'm not kidding myself tho. I know it will be hard but right now my motivation has taken over and I'm not even bothered by my hubby munching on crisps next to me.

    I started last night with a soup and ive just had my first shake...bit powdery arent they! I saw my CDC yesterday as I had an unexpected day off work but I'm actually seeing her on Saturdays from now on. So, this is a very short first week. Not sure if this is good or not. Good to see her again and get some moivation, bad because wont have lost much.
    I've never done this diet before so I hope some of you can help me on my planetary exploration :D

    Day 2.5
    Water 4.25 litres
    Breakfast: choc mint shake (yum)
    Lunch: spicy tomato soup (vile)
    Dinner: choc mint shake (yum)
    Exercise: 30mins walk

    This morning I felt starving at work watching others have their Bacon butties, fried eggs and toast dripping with butter, while I had my shake.
    I was still hungry after it but when I got back to my desk I drank 500ml of water and felt full to bursting :)

    Since starting the diet ive got a few spots around my mouth and even a tiny one in my nose...ouch! Hoping they go soon.

    Today was difficult. at times I could have eaten my desk but I just kept downing the water. Have a feeling work days are going to be difficult.

    Hi Fee.
    Keep at it , it gets much easier after day 3 i promise. Have u tried ice in your shakes it makes them so much nicer.Also how are u mixing them ? it may pay to get yourself a shaker to stop them being lumpy.. Good luck for the rest of the wk and wish you well for your first weigh in .

    Thanks debziedoo. I haven't tried ice yet, may do that tomorrow. I shake the cold ones in a tupperwear liquid container to get the lumps out but haven't managed to make an unlumpy hot shake yet. I mashed it with a fork with a bit of water to make a paste then added more water but was still so lumpy
    . Maybe I will try a whisk next time.

    Just checked and I'm already in ketosis. Yay! Still bloody starving tho ha ha

    Good Luck Fee, you will be fine, the shakers make all the difference to the shakes. I have my OH's old LL one which was easy enough for me but I think you can get them in Boots, I saw one in there the other day anyways, but it will make your shakes a lot less lumpy and powdery.

    The Chicken and Leek Soup is disgusting, I agree with you on that! The spicy tomato one isn't so bad if you add some pepper to it!

    Good Luck

    Breakfast: vanilla shake (lush)
    Lunch: banana shake (my new favorite)
    Dinner: chicken & mushroom soup
    Exercise: 1hr 40min walking

    I love the banana shake. I put it in a bowl with a small amount of cold water and whisked. It made a fab pudding that I ate with a spoon.

    Struggled today when I had to feed my son his dinners. He kept trying to feed me his toast and juice too. I distracted him by telling him to feed teddy.

    I get weighed on Saturday after 4.5 days on Cambridge. So a very short 1st week for me.

    Today was so much easier. Didn't feel hungry at all. I had buckets of energy to play with my son and cleaned out all the cupboards in the kitchen.

    Eeek! It's my 1st weigh in tomorrow morning.

    I lost 8lbs in 4.5 days! I'm over the moon. Not only that, I feel fantastic. I think my hubby thinks I'm on drugs,when he came down stairs I was polishing all the windows ha ha. I have loads of energy. I love it!

    Tonight maybe tricky as we usually have a drink and a take away. I've bought my S.Pellegrino (posh fizzy water) to have in a wine glass and pretend.

    I have my shakes hot, this way it takes forever to eat them and you feel more satisfied. They are much better too according to my taste. Good luck on your journey.

    You can also pour the contents of the Tetra into a small plastic container (with a lid) and then freeze it. I used to love the frozen choc Tetra mmmm. The frozen banana is nice too, but the strawberry one always tasted a bit funny to me, liquid or frozen.

    I've never tried any other terra pack but I'll make sure I stay away from the strawberry then. Debziedoo, I never thought about freezing a packet shake. I think I'll give it a go with a choc mint :)

    Water: 1ltr + 1 green teas
    Breakfast: vanilla shake
    Lunch: Veg soup (tasty)
    Dinner: ???

    Exercise: 1hr walk

    I ached all over this morning. I had to go back to bed for a nap.

    Feeling really sorry myself today. It's like I haven't had a weekend. No nice food, no booze and back to work tomorrow :(

    Really really feel like breaking the CD right now. I keep thinking about red wine and spicy pizza :cry::cry::cry:
