Hi just wanted to say hi and tell u guys abit about me, im 32 and im 13st 6lbs have suffered from depression for many years resulting in me comfort eating, i had heart surgery 10 yrs ago and i have to have it again in a few yrs time.This is the strongest i have been mood wise so feel its the right time to concentrate on my weight. Have to say this site has really helped me to understand how the pills work and the dos and donts!!! I have a couple of questions that i would like to ask and would be very gratefull for a reply :lol: I know that i need to stick to 30g of fat a day but how many cals should i have? And i have a nightout planned next week which has been booked for ages, dont really drink but would like to have a few( 3 kids and a husband that works away dont get out much!!!) there is a 3 course meal as well do i still take the pills or stop a few days before? Well hope to be in touch again soon, thanxs in advance for any help u could give me x

    hi there and welcome

    as far as the calories are concerned you should aim to have less than a normal daily average which for a woman is 2000 a day, a lot of people on here aim for about 1500 but its up to you really as these only work on the fat.

    as for your night out, go for it and enjoy it, it'll make it easier for you to stay on these if you have a meal off every now n then. i would advise perhaps stopping the tablets at lunch on the day, enjoy your dinner and then eat like you're on the tablets the next day and start the tablets the day after that - thats what works for me and my body, everyones different though.

    Hi, welcome to the site and good luck, sounds like you are just in the right place in your head right now. I agree totally with all the advice Sparkles has given you. You do need to have some treats so enjoy the night out. Don't forget to let us know how you progress

    Hi dazzleress

    Welcome to the forum :D

    I found keeping food dairy really helped. I used a A5 size A-Z book into a personal fat& calory counter. I did become obsessed with food for a few months but it did make me rethink what I ate and made me think what I really couldn't do without and find a lower fat alternative. Enjoy your night out, having something to look forward to helps you stick to low fat most of the time.

    If you do slip up don't beat your self up but try and be extra good.

    Good luck :D

    Hi dazzleress

    I don't know??? Are you getting weighed the same time of day? We also weigh more different times of the month. I try and not go on the scales more thn once a week, sometimes I weigh more or the same for a few weeks and then suddenly show a loss. The important think is to perserve and use this experience to re-educate yourself to make the right choices and eat more healthier now and when you are no longer on the tablets. Don't give up if you perserve it will pay off. :D :x
