    There's loads of us either back on the wagon or starting for the very first time this week and we know how hard the first week can be.

    Post your first week survival tips here, mine are:

    Drink fizzy water as I find it easier than drinking still - I feel like I'm drowning drinking still water
    Plenty of clothes layers - I'm always cold on VLCD and being cold makes me want to eat
    Never be more than 5 mins away from a loo - amazing how quickly the fizzy stuff goes through you
    Early nights - if your asleep you can't cave and eat ;)

    So come on, what's your survival tips for all these lovely newbies :D

    Having my choc shakes with crushed ice,,around 15..it is like a McD's Milkshake!!!! It is, honestly!

    Having fizzy water in the evening, in a nice wine glass so that my hands are busy; although they usually on on this keyboard :)

    I am sure there are others, but my brain has just dried up!!

    What got me through week one:
    Reading this forum every time my resolve weakened.
    Water as soon as I got up
    One shake in the morning
    Lots of coffee/tea during the day and did I mention water!!!
    One shake at 5.00p.m
    Water fizzy/still/room temp/iced- basically any blinkin' way at all!!
    Last shake at 8.30p.m
    More water!!!!
    Tidying the house top to bottom and then start over again!!!

    There is no easy way to get through week one but, boy, once you do it gets sooooo easy from then on.
    The buzz from your first weigh in is phenomenal!!!!
