hi and welcome good luck with you losses. the only shakes i drink a choco and strawberry. vanilla ain't very nice but people on here add coffee to it which supposed to make it nicer, i don't like coffee. yes drink plenty of water. and do not ever cheat not even with a bit of protein that's the best advice i can give, As you can see by my ticker it's not worth it. all the best x

Have u tried any of the shakes before?? Thats wat Im most worried about cos some people hav told me there rotten... time will tell! I just keep thinkin that in 6 wks Il b back to normal so thats wat Im going on!!! Hopefully work wont be too bad for u... Il be at home all day everyday with the baby until 6pm (wen my fella comes home) so at least Il be able to lie on the couch if I feel unwell... hopefully I wont though, my pharmacist said to just keep drinking lots of water so heres hoping it goes well for us!!!! He also said the 1st 3 days are the worst so hopefully by Friday we will be flying :)

I am a re-offender. This is my 3rd time on TFR in 3yrs. But it does work and i am a bad example of it. I have am just the worst comfort eater ever and have had an action packed 3yrs!!

The choc shakes are my favourite and they really are grand. Do you have a shaker to make it or a mini blender or even a hand whisk. I use the shaker and just shake till lumps of powder are gone. tis grand.

The worst day is the day that you actually go into what they call ketosis and it can be anywhere from day 2 to 5. For me it has been day 3 and day 5. It is like flu symptoms for me but then it gets much easier. Take paracetemol if you need it and a hot water bottle.

I only work Wed and Thurs and am home with my girls outside of that but busy. Wed is my long tough day. Usually 12 hours and then in again early Thurs morning and that's it then. Girls are just 3 and 17mths and busy bees.

Dying to start to be honest - putting off restarting since Christmas! Desparately want some of this weight gone for the summer.

hi there,
the shakes DO taste better after a while, also at the begining they may not fill you up, but after a while they become really filling. the diet, at the begining, IS HARD! BUT it does get EASIER!
Please do put your self in a strong mental state and be ready, on day 4 onwards it will get easier.
good luck.

i definetely no were ur coming from, my friends are all size 10-12's and can go shopping and fit into whatever they like, whereas i cant and it makes me feel like crap.

ive such bad willpower so hopefully i can stick to it :( hows your willpower?

yeh im drinking 2 litres of water every day i might try for more the day, but its annoying having to relieve my bladder so much at work :p how much water have you been drinking? xx

Iv just started this morning, had my strawberry shake at 10am, and it was not bad at all!!! Im drinking water as I go along... How many pints should I be drinking a day!? is there 2 pints in a litre?? I get confused with pints/litres!!!!
I just cannot wait to b thin again, my willpower isnt too bad... I smoke (normally 6 a day) but I reckon Il be smoking a lot more on the LT!!
Im dreading hitting this "ketosis!!"....

Don't dread the ketosis but welcome it with open arms! It means less hunger and loads of wonderful fat-burning. :D
I fill up 8 small empty Evian bottles a day and put them in the fridge. I use 3 for mixing the shakes and 5 for sipping throughout the day. That way I know I am always drinking at least 2.5 litres a day and any more is a bonus.

i heard its better to sip the water during the day as well. plus it will keep you less hungry. yeah there is 2 pints in a litre, and as far as i no you must drink at least 2 litres a day and thats not counting what you put into ur shakes.

Snap i have the same amount of weight to lose as u...i have dun it before came off it for christmas and well wish i hadnt cus i wud have had all my weight off by now. LT is easy if you ar in the right frame set and I take it one day at a time. The shakes are not too bad but I just keep thinking when I drink them that they are my skinny shakes it will be worth it.
Good luck everyone
