Starting my slim and save journey 1st jan 2014 if the pack arrives by then...

#1
Heya,

Names priya, and this will be my diary on my slim and save journey which i have decided to embark on. This not the first time doing a vlcd, did cd a few years ago. This will be the first step of becoming a newer, happier and more confident me.

I am 24 yrs old going to be 25 in april eekkk....currently 12 stone something, will be more accurate on start day...size 12-14 jeans blurghh...used to be 8 to 10 and that is what i am aiming for once again. Wanting to get down to 8-9 stone so will take each day as it comes and will be rejoining the gym too. Being nearly five foot doesnt do me ne favours when i have put on weight...lol. Need to buy some digital scales from somewhere as i think they r more accurate then the other type. Looking forward to meeting all of you and your support coz need all the help i can get lol...btw quick q r we able to have lemon juice mixed with water while on this vlcd? X

Hello! Good luck on your journey.
Sadly no to the lemon juice due to it could prevent you going into ketosis (everyone's bodies are different though). If it's for taste I recommend the lemon water flavouring. If it's for detox properties then I would imagine the vitamins and minerals from the packs should more than make up for it. Combined with all the water we drink this diet is a very good body cleanser.
Keep us updated hun xx

Aww thank you both of u...can't wait for the pack to arrive...wher ru guys from if u don't mind me asking? I'm from sheffield, kinda wish found this when was at uni lool lives out then would have been so much easier...

I don't want to tell every one about this as they will just scoff at me and tell me not to be silly. But i really need this right now, determined to have a better summer...feeel really lonely these days especially having moved home from uni. I miss being a size 8 to 10. Family scoff at me now for putting so much weight on but was depressed, ex left me in my final yr of uni, did post grad level and was soo much like a recluse. Got family stayin over from brum dno how long for but i am determines to start on the first if thats the time the box arrives undercover.

Need to buy sum digital scales sum cheapo ones as on a budget atm...ne suggestions? Want to buy them before i start so then can a accurate figure to put for my weight...thank u for the answer regarding the lemon was for the flavour lool as plain tap water would have got boring after abit lol....:) but wil try flavourings when comes to the point of boredom...for the beginning plain tap water will have to do...i have beeen readin ur diaries lubin evry page....:)

Sorry for the essay lol think the student has not left me yet lol and i do tend to talk a lot...sorrry....

Hi hun, your diaries been moved - must be magic ;)

I'm with ya on the not telling people. When I first started this diet I only told hubby and slowly let a couple of close friends and family after a few weeks. That way I was fully in the zone and there was no stopping me (and I wasn't so sensitive to criticism by then!)

I think argos or sometimes big supermarkets will be your best bet for cheap digital scales.

I'm from the south east, right on the coast - pretty much literally can walk into the sea if I take a 5 minute stroll out my house! Lol.

You'll do great on this. You sound determined and it's all about how you feel in yourself, you're a grown up and are doing this diet for you. Health wise it's a great choice as you're getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. My mum says she thinks people who scoff at these diets are just jealous at the speedy results and dedication it takes to do it. It's very hard work, but worth it (I reckon so anyways!! :) )

Hope your packs arrive soon!! And if you're trying to be sneaky then the bars and soups are easy enough to hide and the fruity shakes could be easily disguised as a normal milkshake/smoothie or something. ;)

Good luck and make use of these forums! I can easily whittle away hunger pangs for an hour while sifting through people's diaries and achievements! :)
Keep distracted and you'll do great! Xx

Size 12-14 jeans is amazing at 12st something and only 5ft tall. I'm 5ft, 12st 5lbs and size 16 (just) so you must carry the weight well. Good luck on your journey x

It amazes me how sizes can be so different at the same weight! When I was 11.7 I was squeezing in size 12 jeans, I was in size 16s when I was around 14 stone, and I'm only 4'11 lol midget I know!!
My cousin is so slim but weighs 12 stone and size 8, shes about 5'5, where I'm a little podge at 12 stone ha. Crazy!!!

Morning, the pack should last U around 29 days if U have 3 a day, or 22 days if U have 4 per day.
I would imagine most places will be shut tomorrow so better getting them today =)

Well it is true.. U can put the weight all back on, U can with any diet but U just need to make it a life changing decision, make sure U eat healthy when U come off plan and slowly introduce food, I lost 3.5 stone last yr on this, then slowly introduced food and ended up losing another 2.5 after, so it can be done if your carefull :)

Don't listen to any negative comments, alot of ppl are arragant and rude when it comes to dieting, just focus on yourself and what U want xxx

Thanz Steph will b going out tdai then soon as iv got the box...i will try n reorder more or in bits so wont feel as bad on my bank account lool...reli do need to start job hunting asap...finished uni and went straight to india for two months and onli js got bk....bt i knew if i dint buy the ebay deal then no idea when wudv got round to ordering lool n also knew if i dint start at beginnig of jan then wud continue puttin it off till its too late....wanting to b as close to the eights on the scales by march/ april time fingers crossed....i am a moaner so plz bear wit me and im also not the most patient person out there lmaoo...

My biggest fear is that i wont lose weight n even if i do lose weight i wont lose clothes siZes even though i kno thats silly my head won't agree lool its been soo long since i was that low on scales or that small thar iv forgoton the feelin looolz tbh....think thats y the fear is there in the head lol even tho iv been successfull in the past...over 12 stone is the heaviest iv been in a long timee :(....

Gna pop into wilkos or asda for scales its the not knowin wich scales r accurate n which r nt which annoys me....lol x

Quick q in regards to reordering...how do u guys tend to ordee? Is it normally in two week bulks
Or do u go for the whole month coz i was js lukin at the prices and the monthly one may just put a huge dent in ma bank account if done on a regular basis...guess was lucky to get the ebay deal to start me off...ne suggestions at alll will help me greatly as i am trying to plan in advance in regards to ordering stuff seen as iv made a start dont want to drop before i even start...and wud like to make it to at least two month mark if not more bt then again got to think about ma bank account as jobless atm and etc....ne tips or ideaa. Thank u guys xx

No lie if had slightly bit more in ma account wud have js bort two boxes the 88 pack ones frm ebay instead of js the one...bt sadly dint wnt to end up goin over student overdraft lol...ah the joys of finishinn uni n tryin to find wrk :( lol thnku xx

I order the monthly packs because it works out less in the long run. Don't worry about the not losing weight or clothes sizes not dropping, if you're doing the diet properly you will lose weight and the clothe sizes will get smaller xx
 
#19
Monthly is cheaper, but I suppose it depends how and when U get paid, fortnightly might be better for you :)
Believeeeee me U will lose clothes sizes!! I went from a 22 to 12 :-O it will happen.
And im a moaner too and impatient haha we can moan and be Impatient together!! Xx
