Thread for blokes starting LL in Jan/Feb 2008

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

so can girlies comment here too or is it a bloke only zone? Congratulations on a fantastic start of 2stone down in three weeks. Brilliant.

Promise not to say anymore unless girls are allowed in

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

Cheers
Mike

hi now on week 3 . First week 12lb . Second week 5lb and now ready for monday. Did find it hard today really could have eaten today. But havent.
paul

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

Howdy, had my 1st week -(half way point) weigh in last night,
Started @ 97.8Kg on Monday night and after four days am 94.5Kg:D . Not sure how much of that is initial water retention being shed or actual fat. Ketosis is definately in the mix now -as I have very odd bitter taste in my mouth and had to wee on a Ketostix strip last night and it indicated a light pink colour, which is good I think. Am looking forward to next mondays weigh in as this the first week is meant to be the biggest loss is it not? And hopefully the motivator for the next weeks.:)
So glad I've found this forum as I said before, I havent told anyone as I 've got two friends that have done it, and there is a fair amount of stigma attached to the LL programme.:rolleyes:Just glad I've got a support network and outlet for all the strange goings on with my body!
Take care All- have a good weekend:D
