Well here I am again 3rd time lucky! I was on these last year and lost nearly 2 stone in about 8weeks but I fell off the diet wagon and here I am weighing 15st 11lbs. I wondered if anyone has lost over 3 stone on these and how long it took? I'm going away in may and I'm hoping to be around 12stone. Thanks

      That's brilliant! I've done really well these last 2 days just hope I can keep it up! I've decided to cut out bread as that's may main downfall and I've started exercises, legs r killing today! Hope your journey goes well and you reach target, keep up the good work xx

    Hi. Just started on these on the 1st jan. Starting weight 16st 1lb. I'm having 3 meals and snacking on fruit per day. I would like to be around 12st.So far so good and no nasty suprises. I'm using MFP which I'm finding useful. I'm on metabet sr and sertraline and multivitamin. Any useful tips would be grateful

    You and me both.  I came off the tablets just before Christmas to give myself a break and found I lost 3 lbs.  Now back on them I am humgrier than ever.  Over the break I eat sensibly with three good meals a day, soups and very little bread, now back on them I am struggling.   My need for Carbs is awful.     

    I am due back at the doctors next week and really dont know now whether to throw the towel in and just come off them all together
