    I feel your pain...

    I have pcos and it's made me gain so much weigh in such little time. Apparently stress is a factor so I'm working on dropping weight and dealing with that.

    Good luck

    Hi yes.

    I'm pushing 15 stone at the moment so I want to get down to about 10 stone. I've been there before 7 years ago to be exact! But life got in the way, I didn't learn new habits and a baby later it all came back.

    Now I'm fed up of being a slave to my physical issues. I'm going to change!!!

    Good luck I am on day 3. It's not too bad but I realised how much time I spend cooking or just being around food so that will be a challenge.....hope you do really well.

    Hi maybe we could support each other? I am on my 3rd day of SS and need to lose around 8 St, although anything would be a bonus. It's not too bad so far, bit of a headache today but my son is off school poorly and I was up with him last night so maybe it is just lack of sleep!! I think resisting the temptation to pick will be one of my biggest cd lady says the first 3 days are the worst. Let me know what you think?

    Lots of luck

    well i am off university this week so i don't have the temptation of the yummy cafe. the food is gorgeous. i havejust had my first shake of the day. i drove past the sandwich shop this morning and the smell of the bacon kissed me on the cheek. I had to hold my breath!! i love a big breakfast.... :(
    so...the shake is down and planning to fill up on cups of tea.
    wish me luck xxx

    Good luck Skins (can I call you that??) I love a big breakfast too. Actually I just love food lol maybe I need to work on that! What are you studying and how far through the course are you? I did a degree in Medieval Languages (long story...) about a million years ago. Have you tried Red bush tea? You can drink it with or without milk and once you get used to the taste it feels quite filling. Some people say they get headaches a lot on cd and I wondered if it might be caffeine related ? I just like it anyway!

    Have a good day and enjoy the shakes,

    Just get through the first 3-4 days, drink as much water as possible and think of your long term goal..
    Food isn't your friend, it's just what you need to stay alive, so just try and block it out of your mind.
    I recommend blending your shakes with ice to make it even nicer and more like a milkshake.
    You can do it and after you get into ketosis you'll find it easy.
    This isn't forever so just keep powering through and vision a slimmer you each time you turn down food.

    I'm up for helping each other through this... I may as well be a single mum ( I actually have been at one point!) but now I have two kids and one
    Overgrown baby to look after plus working full time and running the house. It's no wonder I have adrenal fatigue issues!!!

    Lots of the reason why I ended up back like this is my husband and youngest daughter (who is 4) are highly sensitive. He has ADD and she possibly is the same but is too young to know for sure. Not slept the night through since she was born!

    But I've got to the point where I can't be sucked dry any longer and I have to do something to manage stress better. Not just eat until I enter a carb coma.

    The most successful time I did this. I learned that if we get into ketosis. It's easy!!! But getting there sucks.

    The first 4 days are the worst. Drink peppermint and green tea. What I used to do is make a 1.5 lt flask of tea and take it to work and drink that and a litre bottle of Buxton and I was at my best. Not on the toilet all night. I know they say the more you drink the more you shrink an that's true but I would advise no more than 3 as it messes with your electrolytes.

    By the way medieval languages sounds ace. Better than social policy and psychology!

    Hahah never been a fan of the soup. Remember the only palatable one was The Thai?

    Then I'm not a savoury sort (sadly!)
