    Dear Diary & Co [​IMG]. 17/08/06

    i thought i would start today as i have my first meeting with my cdc tomorrow afternoon.

    i may have to get my doctor to sign the form first so it may not be until next week when i start (edited to say: please see below for an update) but thought i would also take this opportunity to let us have a VOTE! on how much i will loose in the first week

    so come on the votes have started ........


    look forward to chatting more to you soon

    Well done you for finding out about how a very low calorie diet can work for you.

    I'm going to guess on 6.5lbs :)

    well thats it the first meeting is over and altho i was very upset about how much i weighed (as i have put 2.5 stone on in 6 months!) but hey ho is what i say and time to get rid!

    she has started me on 4 a day for next week and then if i think i can cope with 3 the week after thats what i will do.

    my short target is to get into some jeans and my long term target is 14 stones!

    i will let u know!!

    Good Luck with your weight loss. Just remember that the first 3 or 4 days are the worst, then everything gets a lot easier!

    Hi Louisa

    As everyone has told you, the first few days/week is definitely the most difficult as you get used to a whole new regime and your body adapts to ridding itself of carbs (which it doesn't like doing a whole lot *lol*).

    The packs really are trial and error - not just the flavours but finding out how you like to take them. We're all different - personally I like the shakes cold made in a blender blitzed for about a minute or so with about 3/4 pint of fridge-cold water and a few ice cubes. My favourites are the choc-mint, chocolate (with a 1/4 teaspoon Summer Berry water flavouring to make it into a 'Black Forest' flavour :) ), cappucino (like a frappe with enough ice) and vanilla (which I often add a teaspoon of coffee to).

    The soups I make with about 3/4 pint water, blitzed in a blender and then heated up slowly in a pan, served in a large soup bowl and eaten with a spoon (just like a 'real' meal!). I like them all - and often add either tabasco, curry powder or black pepper to spice them up :) .

    My absolute favourite though is a frozen Chocolate Velvet tetra :p . Place them in a freezer (at least overnight), unwrap, place in a bowl, leave for about an hour to defrost to icecream consistency .. and enjoy!!

    I have never 'cooked' any of the packs as I don't have a microwave, but people tell me that some of the soup packs made into crisps are yummy!!

    Give them all a try and see which ones you like best .. but the secret is plenty of water to mix and give them a real good blitz in the blender before consuming :D

    How are you doing Louisa, yes it was normal to feel that way about shakes, I was like that until I found one I liked and now I cand drink them all just about.

    Try hot chocolate and mint, its yummy.

    Keep going hun, the worst is almost over, I reckon you'll lose 9.5lbs!

    Congratulations on getting through your first day!

    If you drink some water before you take your milkshake this will help dilute the taste.

    HI, just found you. It will get better! I personally love the Butterscotch, but it is all down to personal taste. I like all the sweet flavers made with hot water.

    Weight loss prediction = 8.5lbs

    Good luck hun, we're all here for you!

    Enjoy the jelly is so yummy! And you can have it as well as your packs!! great when you get the munchies!!!
    Just so you don't think your going mad! when you mixed the jelly in the blendar there is a 'foam' this subsides abit but leaves a mousse like jelly on top of the jelly its yummy (well I like some don't).
    Let us know how you got one with it.
