Hello everyone and I am excited to be part of this forum.

I have been a NB owner for just over 24 hours and am already beginning to fall under it's spell.  My primary motivator to buy a NB was to start a more healthy lifestyle, hopefully cure my anxiety which I can sometimes suffer from and also lose a couple of pounds (really this should be numero uno as I am a big girl!) but to me personally the above sounds right.

I live in London and have quite a sedentary job which I was told last week that I would be getting made redundant from so a bit of a shock to put mildly and I need a bit of mental clarity at the moment when it is so tempting to hit the vino and the comforting arms of oblivion.

I was so excited to get my NB, I unwrapped it and, after a preliminary consulting of the booklets, I fired up to make my first blast (this was after already consuming dinner and a sure-fire indicator as to why I am a big girl!) which went down a treat.

At the moment I am making a big blast in the morning to have for breakfast and take half to work in one of the small jugs.  It makes plenty and I find them quite filling and also stops me from snacking as I am more mindful of what I am putting in my mouth!

Today's blast was: spinach, cucumber, blueberries, 2 carrots and 2 sticks of celery ... I do chop up the carrots and the celery and no leakage so far.  Dinner was a chicken salad from Nando's and was naughty as met a friend afterwards and had a couple ciders which were like manna from heaven.

Anyway, sorry - that must qualify for the most boring post ever!  I feel like I am a saddo as I am already looking forward to my morning blast.

Hope that everyone is OK.

Hello LondonLynnDee and welcome to the team! After reading your post I decided to reply to give you one little advice... I've been nutriblasting for about 7 months and throughout this time I've learned that it's much easier when you focus on having a healthy lifestyle, than when you focus on weight or a specific problem. So keep your healthy lifestyle motivator as your numero uno, it's less stressing, the pounds will melt away soon and hopefully your anxiety won't be an issue anymore. I've lost about 50 lbs and I'm still losing, all you need from now on is determination and some good info, which you can find plenty of in this amazing site! Take care and keep blasting!
Just make sure you screw the extractor blade assembly on tight and don't fill the liquid past the max line. I have had mine for a couple of weeks and love it. I use it for breakfast every morning and it is my after dinner dessert a couple of hours after dinner.
Hi Roberto and Captainbob, thanks so much for your replies... am still NB daily and am liking it. I really appreciate your advice.
