    Hi Angie,

    Plan is great, you will have far more confidence in it after the first week. There are some good permanent posts on the main bit of the forum about tips and what to expect. I feel great on it, not hungry appart from in my head.

    Hope all goes well for you x

    Don't be scared! You should be proud for taking this big step! Best of luck. THe first days are a bit weird but for me not too difficult, I found the next few days hardest once the novelty had worn off but then you have a weigh in and seeing a big loss on the scales will blow your socks off and then you'll be hooked lol! Good luck chick xx

    well done Angie, youll be flying it in no time. Once you get through the first few days it does get better.
    im in starting week 6 tomorrow and honestly the time has flown. You will have up and down days but all the wonderful folk on here with give you so much encouragment and support it will get you through.

    Well done on getting through the first day. my advice would be to try and avoid foodie situations till youre fully equipped to cope with them?? and stick to the counselling. I missed this evening and im so disappointed in myself. It really does give you the motivation to keep going when youre feeling down.

    i look forward to reading your diary!!

    Love

    Hi angie and welcome! Well done on your first day. The first few days can be challenging until you get into ketosis as you may have cravings or feel hungry. This is normal. Drink water, tea, coffee, and if all else fails have an early night! Just do whatever it takes to get to the ketosis part and then it gets 100% easier!

    Also, fear and excitement can be two sides of the same coin... Try to be excited more than fearful if you can. You will find loads of support here, and you're doing a fantastic thing for yourself in taking the weight off.

    You only ever have to get through today! You have done that already - you can do this!!!

    Aww bless your fiance, I think I would have had to crown him with the bottle of red wine lol One of my weaknesses is alcohol and would have been green with envy on my first day in abstinence. Well done you for not turining a hair !

    Good luck with the form, its a pain to wait.

    Well done on getting through the first day, I'm starting Sunday!!

    Regards to the medical form if you ask your LLC she may be able to recomend somewhere. My GP won't sign the form but I can go to Sperdrug and get it done for £40 so I'm off there tomorrow. Good luck x x
