    So I started today. I did lighter life a few years back and found it great but have let it creep back. Anyhow I've done day one so soon I'll be in the bliss of ketosis. I've had my gallbladder out since doing LL so hope that doesn't slow me down. Let's do this!

    Hi Sandrat how are you getting on?

    Hope you don't mind me asking but did you have to have your gallbladder removed because of the vlcd you did before? I've heard a few people have trouble with it on these type of diets and to be honest it worries me a bit.

    No one asked about vlcd when I had surgery but there is a family history. 2 uncles an aunt and my grandmother all had there's out. It is the most painful thing. Worse than labour. I actually had the pains while pregnant but they couldn't scan the gallbladder as I was almost full term and baby was in the way. Pregnancy can trigger it too.

    Weighed myself this morning and after 3 full days I have lost 6lbs. Think ketosis has kicked in too. Happy days!

    That's excellent Sandra, 6lbs in 3 days!

    I think I'm in ketosis although I still succumbed to a piece of cheese :-( just got to put it behind me and move on.

    I haven't weighed but may do tomorrow to try and keep me motivated...could go the other way if I haven't lost much though?!

    My daughter decided it was her teddy's birthday today's we had a party!

    I didn't touch a bit of it! Very proud. Taking kids on day out tomorrow so I'll be bringing a bar and vanilla shake so I can get a nice coffee to mix it with.

    Going to weigh again in the morning to see if I've improved on 6lbs! Trousers that were tight no longer are so that's a great feeling

    I decided not to do a last supper this time. Cut down on carbs for a few days before starting and got zero ketosis headaches
