First wk on 1400 calories a day

Weighed myself this morning after following it all week apart from Friday night (birthday meal) and Sunday tea (birthday tea) and I've lost 4lb! So this week should be cracking. Good luck everyone. This has changed my smile already :) x

Wishing you another good week ahead.

Thank you. I've done numerous diets and first wks are always 6-9 lb losses, but this feels different. 4lb is amazing and I hope it gonna be steady but consecutive xx

It's great isn't it I have been a fad dieter for years and members of this and that but to be honest this gets the best results by far! Well done on your 4 pound loss :)

oh wow! this sounds amazing! I just started this 1400 calories a day, today is my very first day of the very first diet on my entire life! I am here to share and maybe to ask around for some advices! I wish my first week will be as good as yours Don1405! And I wish you to keep losing weight and keep smiling! And happy belated birthday, of course!

Good luck!!

I wish you all the best too. I didn't realise how many calories I was consuming each day until now, I would think nothing of 2 cherry bake wells then half a pack of biscuits.. I thought that in the past the 'diets' weren't working. But it was just how much I was eating, many thanks for the birthday wishes :) stay positive and I hope you have a good first week :) xx

Please don't feel like that. I have had to hard on myself as I'm a junk food fan. It's hard to just stop, but after the first wk, it's made me feel do different. I can do this. I'm here to help you too, keep going and do your best. Don't think about loosing weight, think of getting healthier. I'm doing it for my children xx
