Slim Fast

I have been needing to lose about 30 pounds for the past year but did not have the motivation to do anything about it. I love fast food and anything sweet.
I was going to write last week and tell about starting the Slim Fast diet ,but, honestly speaking, I did not think I would be able to stick with it for more than a day or two. Today, however, is day TEN and I have stuck with the plan!!! WOOHOO!!!
Ten days of Slim fast and walking and I have lost 2 pounds. It is not much but enough to give me the encouragement to keep going.
I have a shake for breakfast
fruit for a snack
a shake for lunch
fruit and a slim fast bar...and a Pepsi One...for a snack
and a sensible dinner.

I have not had fast food or sugary sweets in ten days.
My "treat" every day is my Pepsi One because I can not go without my caffiene or I would have a headache. Considering the amount of candy and sweets I eat, the one soda is nothing!
The part I AM having trouble with and have decided to just give up on is I cannot get 8 glasses of water down. I drink my slim fasts and my soda and that is my water intake. I am just not a big water drinker.
I do not plan on staying on this long term because I like real food too much but it is getting me going. The calcium and nutrients in the shakes...tho in liquid a far cry from all the Taco Bell and candy bars I was eating.
Is anyone else doing or done the Slim Fast Plan?
Looking for encouragement to keep going here...and to know what to do next after I get these 30 pounds off
