Hello All - I am a new member and have joined as I thought it would be really great to hear from others in a (or have been in a) similar situation. I am currently 13st13lb and have been at this weight for a good 8 years (give or take a stone) but I am the heaviest I have ever been and am now determined to sort myself out. I have realised that I am just so impatient and have failed previously because I am not physically seeing any loss quickly enough, for this reason I have decided to do 8 weeks on a VLCD (Exante) and will then gradually introduce some healthy meals and return to three meals a day. I previously have had a good healthy diet when it comes to my three meals but then I blow it by snacking even when I am not hungry which is my problem . I am hoping that by being disciplined on VLCD this will help kick my snacking habit and retrain my brain. I would love to hear any tips and advice along with success stories of VLCD dieters, it would really be appreciated . I am going to log and post my weekly weigh in for 8 weeks in case anyone is interested but also to keep me motivated too. Thank you.
