Do remember that meal replacements and very restrictive diets are a short term solution. For sustained and maintained weight loss its needs to be a lifestyle change. If we were all eating healthily and doing enough exercise there would be no need for this website! You really do have to get into the right frame of mind. For me it was sitting down and REALLY thinking about why I am overweight, why I want to lose weight and setting realistic goals.
We have all got into this situation because of our bad habits and the only way to change that is to change those habits.
Good luck and stick with it.
