First week down & in need of support already

Hi everyone I started LLL last monday so have got my first proper weigh in tonight - i found the first week quite easy apart from trying to fit all 3 packs in as i only used to eat 1 meal a day on an evening. Then came the weekend... resisted drink, resisted food and then i decided whilst making the other half a grilled breakfast that i would have my meal in the morning too - i spent all of Sunday wishing i hadn't as i had previously been looking forward to my meal on an evening - does anyone know if this will wear off over the weeks and i will be happy to have my one meal at any time of the day? Support is an issue around me as i havent told many people, my boyfirend, and my mum & dad are aware and the only thing they can say is that i am doing my body more harm than good with a diet such as this! Luckily my bet friend did LLL a few years ago and she has kept her weight off and looks amazing - so she understands how hard it is and is very supportive saying she will stay of the alcohol too with me! My other half is the complete opposite - teasing me with food! Do the unsopportive ones eventually ease off and give credit where it is due? Sorry if this seems a negative post but i need to rant after having what i thought was a good first week turning into feeling rubbish! Dannii xxx

    Best of luck and keep going; once you're into a routine you'll be grand! :-)

    Danni - good luck on LLL - though I'm on LLT, I think you will find the meetings really helpful in giving you tools to deal with the naysayers and we're always here for support!

    It's the start of a life-long journey which starts with one step, then another....

    I too have problems if I eat my meal earlier in the day. I enjoy my meal in the evening. I think because it has always been the main meal of the day for me.

    Hi Becky

    Thanks for confirming i'm not going mad! haha! I know its only the first/second week and obviously if something is worth doing then its going to be a struggle - i just needed to know that other people think the same as i do and that im not a nutter!

    ive planned my evening meals for the next week and aim to do my weekly shops every tuesday (my meetings are on mondays) so that i can start to get a routine in place - i just need to get a routine of when to have my food packs as that is the one thing which is a bit all over the place at the moment i.e. not taking them at regular intervals, or forgetting to have one until 1pm!

    I'll get there (fingers crossed)

    Hi Dannii, Firstly well done for having a good first week. I must admit, I am much more successful with LL when I am in a routine, which means pack for breakfast, pack for lunch, food for tea, and a pack for supper. If I have food at lunchtime (due to going out) it really disrupts me and I feel starving in the evening and my packs don't seem to suffice (which I am sure is psychological)! I would recommend trying to get into a routine as although it might be tough for a couple of days, your body will soon adjust. You're always going to get people who make negative comments about LL. It's unfortunate that it's your boyfriend as it's much easier when those closest to you are supportive. I reckon, as soon as you start losing the pounds and inches and feel more confident, your boyfriend will soon change his mind and love that you're doing LL! Maybe he's just freaked as he feels like he will have to be healthier now that you're on LL! Let us know how you get on. x
