    Keep your mind set and motivation, you'll do it. I've lost 3st 12lb in six weeks, I've totally changed how and what I eat. Don't think of it as what you can't eat but all of what you can. Plan your meals, don't leave it to chance. Drink plenty of water to help fill you up, watch your portion control and use a smaller plate. It's not as bad as it sounds. Good luck!

      Thank you.  I really hope I can stick to it...I was at an after show party last night, surrounded by all the fatty pastry stuff, but was reasonably restrained.  Have been waiting for the stomach ache and other nasties, fingers crossed so far, nothing is happening.  Back on the total low fat this morning.  How does fruit figure in this low fat...still important to restrict it? I certainly feel very positive about it all...lets see what four days away will unfold.

    This is janice14259

    ive been away from home so having to eat what I'm given. But, more controlled than normal and avoiding big fat. I intend to be even more controlled at home but have 2 short breaks . One after the other. So far no side effects and I do feel as if I'm losing weight, but I have eaten some things like a small scone with jam and haven't had any cramps or sickness. I had a roast dinner twice this week. Am i in danger of anything?

      All seems to be going well, and I have certainly been exercising lots more self control. I have been taking tablets and ate a huge salad at lunch time. Feeling ok. Are you aiming for pre-baby weight.?
