    awww big hugs, we all get a bit down from time to time.

    why do you say you haven't lost any weight, have you weighed prior to the tablets then weigh again on same scales ? My house scales make me at least 4lb lighter than the one's at the Dr's so I don't really take much notice of mine only to see if I have lost.

    I had my meeting with the nurse at the surgery today which happened to be in a different room than the one we normally are in so different scales, she checked the other room and when free took me back there to be weighed on the same scales as usual, then we popped back to the other room to have a chat.

    From my understanding of the weight loss requirements in the first month you need to loss 4lb's and to be completely honest I think over the last 3mths on average that is what I have lost monthly which although myself not happy with the Dr and the nurse are both very happy. I console myself with having to do my belt up 2 holes over.

    Don't put added worry on yourself wait and see what happens at the Dr's and if possible do as I do and see the nurse for a weigh in fortnightly to get advice.

    Today my consult with the nurse went on for 40mins as she was advising me on diet and possibly cutting out wheat for my daughter, a iron tonic drink I could take to give me a bit of a lift (which I've actually forgotten the name of as we got chatting about holidays but began with an F)

    The nurse I see is very supportive and gives me an additional boost to keep going and it sounds like you could do with someone like that.

    ooooooo suza what on earth have you been putting???? :lol:


    I feel for you Wyntersmum sad

    It is very sad when you feel down, I hope you can try and start to turn things round for yourself.

    You are definately not alone in this. In my head, I don't look that bad, I have one full length mirror which stays in my step sons bedroom, all the mirrors I look in are at head height, when i catch a glimpse of myself in a shop window I don't know who that person is? When I see pics I think the camera must put 4 stone on me?? But I know it's me sad

    We all know what to do, we all know what is healthy to eat. These pills to me just help me to think twice about what I'm eating.

    You will lose weight, It isn't easy, I can honestly say that this forum is fab for picking you up and helping you get back on track.

    I had a rubbish 2nd week (I am very appalled with myself for my rubbish week being the 2nd!!) but I'm over that hurdle and back on track.

    Your scales may be rubbish?

    Good luck, and chin up smile

    Hi Suza

    The reason your post got reported was because you wrote \"awww\" in the first sentence :D - so the system thought it was a website
