    Welcome back Mandy and good luck on your journey. It's hard when you lose someone that's so close and helps us along. I fell of the wagon a few years back when Dad died, but now it's the right time for me to sort things out. Really hope all goes well for you as you get into ketosis and start losing the weight.
    happy new year :)

    Hi Halo! Nice to meet you!

    First few days are always the hardest. I find that splitting the packs in half helps....gives u more "meal" times lol. Im struggling with hunger pangs today too but trying to keep my last pack til half 7 as i struggle more at night. Ive just been and bought myself a magazine and when i opened it the first story i read was about someone who lost 8 stone in 5 months on a meal replacement diet so thats perked me up a bit for tonight. Have a long hot bath, read a book....whatever it takes. You will get thru the hungry phase....look forward to day 4 or 5...it eases a LOT when ketosis kicks in. Good luck! xx

    Thanks honey:)

    Halo im doing total solution.....i dont want to introduce food just yet. I tried working source a few months back and as soon as i introduced foos into the mix i tended to cheat a lot lol. Im sure you'll reach your goal in no time, especially as you have something to aim for!

    I plan to do total solution until ive lost all bar 1stone then move to working solution for the last stone. Thats the plan anyway, but guess just have to take each day as it comes xx

    Welcome back Mandy!

    It is a very difficult when you lose someone you were especially close to like your Gran and it takes time to come to terms with such a huge loss in your life.

    Good luck with starting back on your diet journey:hug99:

    Yep done and dusted! Altho i had a very near cheat last night....hence the early night. Was sitting watching TV and thinking "its not worth this hnger!"...lol. Moment of madness led me to switching on the oven and throwing in some spring rolls.....the minte i could smell them cooking i switched the oven off, threw them out and dived under the duvet! Argh....very close but i think deep down i knew i was never goin to eat them! Feel better today tho....looking forward to wed or thurs when ketosis will make an appearance x
