Hi all,

I'm another re-starter, at least I will be tomorrow morning:).

I did LT nearly 4 years ago before having my little girl and found it brilliant, tried it twice more after she was born but my head just wasnt in the right place for it.

Well it IS in the right place now - I cant believe I'm actually saying this but I'm looking forward to starting again (ha, we'll see how long that lasts)

For those who are new to this - dont kid yourself, it is NOT the easy way out that some people will tell you (...and they'll be people who dont have a large amount of weight to lose), but do it right and it will work for you.

Roll on Monday!!

hey allll i started LT 3 weeks ago but this last week iv been re-feeding but going back to tfr100% tomorrow so it will be like starting alllll over agen :-s fingers crossed lol
hey guys, thanks so so much for all the support!!!!! Decided to start tomorrow instead - thought it would be a gd time to start as its the beginning of a new wk.
Like others on here, I have tried a few times now and my head just hasnt been in the right place. i have an emotional attachment to food and this year has been a difficult one and I have piled on 4 stone :(
I feel very uncomfortable in my own skin and avoid social situations as much as possible which affects my marriage very badly (we are both only 29).
I have promised my hubby that I will do this for both of us now - he is against TFR but understands why I want to do it and has promised to support me.
I am going to book a long awaited weekend away with him the end of sept and I plan to do this for 14 weeks (that would take me up to 13th sept) with one day off for family wedding on 8th july.
I look forward to losing weight with you all and hope that, together we can do this! :)

Chrissie, Deem, Josie and Hubabubba - we CAN and WILL do this!!!!!!
Bex and MiniB thanks for your support and look forward to chatting to you over the coming weeks xxxx
Hey Latebloomer....i'm restarting tomorrow too! I did LT 100% for 10 days but sadly have had 2 weeks off!!!!! getting back on track tomorrow and cant wait to be in control again!!!!! We can do this!!!
hey littleflower - never mind the 2 weeks off............at least you're getting back on track - let me know how youre getting on, we both have similar enough start weights. I feel all motivated so we can keep each other on track ;)
Chat tomorrow xx
great...we can do this x
hi all, how is everyone getting on so far today?? Just drinking my first pint of water, feeling positive so far :)

Hi all,

Day 1 underway....one shake and 1 pint of water down the hatch.

So far so good. How are you all doing?

Hi D!!! Good for you, I'm glad it's all going well so far.
I just had 1st shake before 1 and have 2 litres of water in - I cannot stop peeing needless to say, lol! Feeling gd so far ;)
Hi Latebloomer
how you getting on today?I am on day three and finding it tough enough. i am determined not to break it but its so hard shopping for a family and not throwing in a multi pack of crisps!!The main bit i struggle with is not eating with my daughter and husband at tea time
Hi deem

well done. I am determined to stick at this and really want to be able to wear last summers clothes but its quite tough. just going to make my vanilla shake- someone mentioned to me that you can add coffee to it and i am wondering if you can heat it and have a sort of latte???

Josie, the vanilla shake is lovely with coffee - either hot or cold and the chocolate one is lovely with mint tea - kinda like a mint choc!!

Latebloomer - how are ya doing? I'm really hungry today, cant wait for ketosis to kick in.

Right there with you Josie on the running to the loo the whole time thing!! I'm trying to get most of my water into me in work as I'm not so good for taking it at home.

I went window shopping on Saturday and found it great for getting myself psyched up, by the time Monday arrived I was SO ready for this. :)

Take care all,
