First day nerves!

Posted , 5 users are following.

Hi everyone,

I found this website last night as I sat staring at the packet of pills I'd picked up yesterday, preparing my mind for starting taking them today - I was so daunted but the site seemed so friendly!

I'm 37, 5ft8, weigh 17.5 stone, size 22. I am brilliant yo yo dieter!! lose lots then put it all on again and need something to kick me back on to losing again as I'm back up to my heaviest.

Was excited about losing weight but terrified of the much publicised side effects. I have really taken on board all your advice about the grams of fat per day and per meal, have to see if that works. The downside is I'm not used to counting fat (normally look at calories or go back to old slimming world rules) so finding it confusing. Am currently scared to eat anything which doesn't have the exact fat labelled on the front! So have bought big book today which lists the fat content of everything known to man!

Anyway, just wanted to say hello to you all, you've already been very helpful from reading old posts!

    You need to drink plenty of water. Like the others have said you wont get horri :x le side effectsif you stick to no more than 30g of fat per day (no one than 15 per meal).

    Started taking the pills yesterday, so far so good, still learning on the fat contents, but I know I'll get my head round that with time.
