    Day 1
    Hi everyone, well I've started exante today, just had a banana shake and enjoyed it!! I did CD 5 years ago an lost 3 stone in 12 weeks going from 12 7 to 9 7 and felt fantastic. I kept it off fir 2 years with being sensible but then lots of things happened and I got into bad habits again and gained it all back, it happened slowly tho!!! We relocated last August from the north east to the west midlands and I have been throughly miserable, so have taken comfort in takeaways and meals out. Anyway, end result of this is arrived here in august at about 12 9 and weighed this morning at 14 5 !!!!!! I can't believe it !!!! I look and feel dreadful, I'm only 5 2 tall. So today is the start, my goal is Florida in 7 weeks and I want to lose 28 pounds for that. I know I'll still be way off where I was when I finished cd but I'll feel a lot happier in myself. I've got nothing to distract me but a family birthday in 2 weeks. When I was on cd, I was mainly v strict but did have a few days off when things were going on. Ate protein and had very watered down wine with sparkly water - so that's my plan in 2 weeks!!! Good luck to everyone else too - One reason I never went back to cd was the thought of the shakes again turned my stomach! Hoping the exante ones taste as good as the banana I had this morning xx

    i start today aswell, i have 9 weeks today until my wedding but i do weigh like 16 stone so i have a fair bit to loose just yet, so we can do this hun, we both want to loose it for something special. I got a shake for brekkie probably strawberry and then banana for lunch then a soup in the evening, when im off i will have 2 soups but too hard to make up at work. Will post later to let you know how i get on, im usually bad in the evening, but im working today until 8 so that will help.

    Hi
    Both of you, just wanted to wish you both good luck with today. As u may know the first few days may be a little up an down but it will go and your excitment for next week when you get on the scales pulls you through. Im on wk1 d6 and I feel good apart from not been able to sleep last night but not an issue. I have never used exante but I did LL before and I must say the products from exante are not only cheaper but taste quite nice. Anyway have a good day, distract yourselves as much as you can and try and focus on "The Wedding" and "Florida" Good Luck xx

    Hi amzie, 16 9 to 14 7 is 30lbs not 44, so you will easily do that in 9 weeks !! If you want 44, you could do that as well I'm sure. Hope you enjoy your soup later, I didn't get any soups as I hated them on cd, but maybe they are better on exante!! I've had a splitting headache twice today and had to take tablets. Going to have a coke zero in a mo as a treat. Remember your goal of the wedding and holiday and I'll keep thinking of how uncomfortable I'll be in the Florida heat at this weight!! Have a good evening xxx

    Day 2
    Thanks for your support miss mac.
    Just had chocolate shake - not keen on it! Didn't like chocolate shake in cd either, but didn't mind the chocolate tetra. Feeling ok after 2 bad headaches yesterday, had wind big time yesterday !!!!!
    Have managed to resist jumping on the scales which I did every day on cd, but think I may have a little look tomorrow!! Bought the strawberry and apple flavoured water from tesco, had 1.5 litres of that yesterday which was nice, think I'll have apple today. Managed 3 L of water in total too. Hope everyone has a good day x

    Hi Moonie. I agree I dont like the chocolate shake either. I think I will put two splenda tablets in them. Might just work better. 3L of water wow. I hope I get them down. I find if I fill a one small 1 litre bottle it goes down better than having glasses. Will see. Have not bought any flavoured waters yet, but might just get to a stage where I have to. Good luck today. It will be all worth it for us all in the end. Cant wait.

    Day 3
    Well getting towards the end of day 3 and doing ok I think. Feeling really hungry but able to ignore it - just sipping on a coke zero at the mo. Haven't drank as much today as really busy at work and couldn't keep nipping off for the loo all the time. Am hoping to start feeling less hungry by tomorrow, really enjoying the shakes. Didn't get the pack with soups and glad I didn't looking at some posts. Like the orange bar but not as keen on the toffee one, but it's edible enough !!! Roll on day 4 xx

    Day 4
    OMG - what's this all about !!!! When I was on CD I struggled going to the loo - sorry everyone - and used to buy the fibre. Was concerned again when I started exante that I would be the same. Today I have felt great but have had the runs major time !!!! I've never been off the loo :cry:I hope the products are upsetting my tum as I feel so positive. Went shopping earlier today and bought a couple of sun dresses for my holiday in the size below what fitted me xx :flirt2:
