    Hi,
    I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread for all the newbie blokes like me that started LL at the beginning of the year. As I have no idea how many or few that is, I thought it would be best to include anybody starting in Jan or Feb 2008

    I did look to see if such a thread existed but couldn't find one.

    I started LL 3 weeks ago, I thought it would be good to have a thread for newbies starting in the first couple of months of the year.

    I have just had my 3 week weigh in (last night) and have lost just under 2 stone since starting.

    No real problems so far. I haven't bothered with the bars just 2 shakes and 2 soups per day.

    I use a lot of black pepper and tabasco in the soups which helps!

    I eat (drin?) them all except Vegetable which I didn't like.

    Shakes, I whip with loads of ice to make ice cream.

    Favourites are in order Banana, Vanilla, chocolate, caramel (the rest I do not like).

    I have felt cold for the first time in years the last couple of weeks, but this is normal.

    Once I get down to ideal weight, and go through maintenance, I intend to have a lifetime GL plan as I think that is the most nutritional and healthiest approach to living as a slim person (at least I hope it is)

    Good Luck all!
    Cheers
    Mike

    Well I don't mind really, but perhaps there should be one for girls and one for blokes - What do you think?

    Cheers

    That is great! When I find it hard (like last night when the wife did a fresh roasted free-range chicken with all the trimmings), I think do I want to eat that or do I want to be thin again and it makes it easy really!

    Good Luck Paul!

    I had my weigh in last night (after 4 weeks) and was pleased to find out that I lost 7.7 lbs this week - more than last week!

    I've lost a smidgen under 2.5 stone in the first 4 weeks so I am pretty pleased.

    I also had my measurements done and in the same time I have lost 1 inch from my neck, 3.5 inches from my chest and 5 inches from my waist.

    I have to say that it is pretty easy so far. I have done atkins off an on for years so I guess my body is well intune with ketosis. - No headaches, very little hunger and no real problems with the water.

    Cheers
    Mike

    :D Hi lads, well done on your weight loss so far, i am back again on cambridge, when i first did it i went from 16st 7lbs to 13 st 4 lbs in 3 months, i was great, then after a good holiday abroad and other things it slowly crept back up with some extra weight, i have started again in jan and the weight is moving again, my best bit of advice is drink the water, it really is the key to losing the weight :D
