Good on you Aquagirl! You've taken the 1st and often hardest step by actually deciding to join up to the TF weightloss program. Congratulations....if you stick to it, you'll see results very very shortly. Remember to drink at least 2 litres water daily (I drink 3 each day and I find I lose more weight the more water I drink). The first 2 days can be quite hard, making many people feels dizzy, tired, hungry and have bad headaches - especially if you are a big coffee drinker. I found that I was ok if I kept my water intake up. I didn't get any headaches and made use of the unlimited diet jelly whenever I felt hungry or like something sweet. You could make up a batch of weight watchers 'no-point soup' and have that as often as you like whenever you're hungry, as long as you limit the carrots. I make it up without the carrot and basically put in whatever other 'allowed' vegies I have in the fridge. Helps fill you up at lunch time after your shake. I have been having the soups a bit more for lunch now, whereas when I first started TF I only had the shakes. I add heaps of vegies to the TF soup and it feels more like a 'real' meal.

Feel free to send me a private message if you need to chat about the program or if you have any other questions. Otherwise, just post it in this thread and we'll answer you ASAP.

Good luck and congratulations again! :D

Thanks everyone.

Kate- Its just a personal issue with confidence and all. I was also struggling with the concept of paying for a diet. Thats all.

Hang in there will pass, I can speak from experience. Can you make up little containers of diet jelly to take to work to get you through the sugar cravings?

Nope so far today I've been offered the following and rejected them all:

A spare Latte someone got our company order at Gloria Jeans and it was offered to me.
A Pizza Bun stuffed with Ham and Cheese a coworker bought enough of those in to feed a small world nation
A Macdonalds Breakfast.
A Chocolate Bar
A Coke
A handful of potato chips.

If i can say no to all those in one day im not about to cave now! :D

As you can see my work place seems to be on the exact opposite of my diet ...... one of the main reasons ive got the extra weight in the first place.

I am also on Tony Ferguson- today is day 4 doing well except have been home sick last two days so am only having one shake a day and other than that just my evening meal. I am having coke withdrawals but am coping remarkably well considering how much coke I did drink.

Didn't work for me. Well it worked, but you have to lose weight if you can't eat! Problem is with very low calorie diets that most people end up putting all the weight back on because they're not sustainable, but they get everyone switched on becuase you lose a lot of weight fast.

You see alot of the people you loose the weight put it back on because the dont adjust their eating habits after. You can't just go back to what you were eating before the weight loss, sowly add things back into your diet and see what works and doesn't.

Shakes do seem to work for alot of people so long as they do keep in mind that at the end they still have to change their eating habits. I guess thats why I've never done them, Id rather just cut out the middle man and change my eating habits.
Unfortunately alot of other people think that you use the shakes to crash diet, then go back to how you were, and pile it back on again.
I've always been suss of the shake diet, but kudos to anyone who makes it work for them!
Life is too important to be taken seriously!

Im loving it, best thing ive done to date! Is great for me as its convinient, easy and the weight is coming off. I lost 25kgs or so by myself, with exercise and eating well etc...but got to a point where I was
1)unmotivated and over it
2)exercising too much and not getting the results in return
3)stressing about my weight and
4)not moving on the scales...

So thought id give it a go to get the last bit of weight off, and am very happy! Depends on your lifestyle and situation! Im just bloody excited as i'll finally be at goal BEFORE CHRISSIE! And I will never go back to eating the way I used to 2 years ago, as i'd feel like crap and I enjoy being healthy!

I did the Tony Ferguson Diet too, I lost 2.5kg in the first week, then went up then pretty much lost a kilo a week, however I stopped after 3 weeks. becuase I too was very hungry and I had some side effects, I had headaches, and felt hungry most of the time. I did not like the soups, so only had the shakes, and I was starting to think that living off shakes is not a good thing.

I have only started on this forum, but since joining, I have cut out potatos, junk food, reduced the amount of coffees i have per day and I have lost 2 kilos.

Tony Ferguson was good, but just did not suit me, so I say give it a go, what works for some, does not work for others.

Let me know how you go with TF

Good Luck
