      Ok then i'd better scoot.

      Goodluck everyone and hope you are having a nice rest day holiday.

      Hi Daisy...
      that is a FABuLOUS loss, you must be so pleased, I will try to think of it each time I have a cup of black tea!
      Couldn't face bacon and eggs for brekky this morning so have had yoghurt and will have b&e for lunch.
      I'm off to reset my out of date ticker and maybe even start a diary.

      Good luck for tomorrow Sam with your weigh in, I'm sure we are all sending you 'good vibes'

      Hi Jo, are you starting today also? Monday is such a good start day, lets hope we can keep it going!
      Cheers
      J:)

      Jamacu don't worry the black tea will only last you until phase 2 and that is in 5 days . Funny thing is that I have grown to love the green decaff tea so much I am sticking with it :) . I am so looking forward to the skim milk in decaff coffee though . I think I will only need 1 more day on phase 1 , so I will start phase 2 on wednesday .

      Bacon and eggs I do not like at all , so only did that once this week . I don't mind poached eggs on wholegrain toast but can't have that together anymore , oh well better to feel as good as I do .

      All the very best with phase 1 for you , I am so glad that you have started and wish you all the very best with it :)

      Hey everyone, wow this diet plan seems to make alot of sense. I have lost nearly all the weight I want too doing Body Trim. This sounds like it would have been a great option too though. I went to a iridoligist/naturopath/homeopath when I was a teenager and found out then that I have candida. Is this diet suppose to eradicate Candida from your body or just eradicate the cravings associated with it?

      Decided to start phase 2 today , so I will post my menu for a few days . I will be back tonight to post .

      Jo , have you tried the natural yoghurt for breakfast , I thought I would hate it being so sour but it turned out to be my favourite snack . However after spending over $15 in one week , I think I should buy a yoghurt maker . Does anyone out there own one , if so what are they like and how do you make the yoghurt ?

      Hope everyone has a great day :)

      I haven't got one but what a good idea! The easiyo ones are pretty cheap (I just found a website - goldenglow.com.au sells the maker for $19.50). You'll have to let us know if you get one and how it turns out :D

      Thanks for that Jellz :)

      Had a look but at the price of $3.50 per satchet and then $19.50 for the machine it would probably work out about the same . There stachets make 1 litre of yoghurt . I have been buying the 1.5 L Vaalia natural yoghurt for $5.59. I will have a look at kmart though and see how much they sell the satchets for . It was lovely of you to look though and pass on the info .

      Congratulations on your loss, Daisy! Feeling great plus a 2.5kg loss is fantastic! :D

      I had a yoghurt maker a few years ago and it was really easy to make, but now I can't get the sachets any more. The yoghurt was yummy, but I'm not sure what the fat / calorie / carb values would be.

      Good luck Sam! :D

      Hello everyone:)

      I've already posted my losses and measurements in my diary with further information.

      But I am just posting my losses etc....here.

      Ok so I've lost 1.7kg for my first week and 8cm from around my waist:).
      So I'm happy with that:)

      I am going to stick with phase 1 until I am back into the 70's which hopefully won't be too much longer. If I hadn't gained I would have been there already....oh well i've kicked myself up enough about all this.
      But at least I've found a diet I know I can stick to now and enjoy so that should help me with my yoyo dieting. That's part of the battle gone now;).
      I must also start incorporating some excerise into my day as well.
      That 1.7kg loss was with diet only.

      Ok that is me for today.

      Will be back tonight to post menu.

      Goodluck in phase 2 Daisy:)....I would appreciate you posting your menu for us here for a little bit.

      Bradders my shopping bill was the same today...the only different food I am buying is the yoghurt and brown rice...but I may stop buying the kids the sugar variety of yoghurt and start the kids on brown rice as well.
      If anything you end up buying healthier foods the unprocessed kind and reduce the purchasing the of processed (white, wheat filled products) foods.
      Infact my grocery bill reduced;)....

      I buy the Sun brand....haven't seen any others. Tried also looking for the rice pasta..but there was nothing in the health section at woolworths today.

      Thanks Bradders...
      Japan!...Hubby travels for work there quiet abit but I've never been.
      Are you planning to lose before you leave?
