Hi, i've been absteining since last thursday. How are you feeling?

Well, a good friend of mine has done it recently, so that helped as last week, I basically stopped eating carbs and only had one coffee a day so hoping I won't get the dreaded carb withdrawal symptoms.
I've found it easy to get the 4 litres down -am on litre no 5 right now and still hours til bedtime.
I am struggling with the foodpacks though - they make me gag as I try to swallow them! Not ideal as my only nourishment source for the forseeable future.
How are you doing? Have you had your drop in session yet? Are you in ketosis? Have you taken any of the bars?

Had my drop in on sunday, had lost 7lbs so that was a boost. I got a few bars since i was in ketosis, but they arent much to write home about, better if you keep them in the fridge lol

which ones did you get?
Found I have to add lots more water to the shakes than they suggest, otherwise they are just too gloopy and make me wretch.
Well done at 7lb though!
Have yo got lots to lose?

Hi I did Lighterlife for 3 months last year and lost 4 stone. Only problem was my hair fell out in handfulls, I was sooooo constipated and had to go to hospital with pains whh I was told was constipation. My friend lost loads, went and had her boobs done right after then got pregnant the following montth!!

Handfuls of hair?? shock

Did it become a problem for you? How long did that go on for?

I've heard about the constipation too, but apparently you have to drink even more water to sort it! Poor you though, ending up going to hospital..........

Well done on the 4 stone though - has it stayed off?

They do say you get more fertile - have to wary of that!

Did you try any of the bars? What are they like?

Well, I had my week 1 weigh in last night and in total, I had lost 10lb!
I was thrilled for 7 days.
Hope everyone else is doing well
