I had my weigh in the other day and I was sooo surprised and chuffed that I had lost 9kg in about 6 weeks. Weighed myself this morning and felt really motivated to keep going and meal plan. Anybody else had their gp weigh in yet?

      Hey! I hope you like it so far. For the most part I avoid things cooked in oil or butter (I had to actively avoid this because I used to use these ingredients in a lot of dinner recipes). And other than that I try to stick to around 1200-1500 calories per day. For the most part I eat around 1200 but don't fret when I go over. I've had truly awful days where I've had bad food or takeaways and I love how these pills keep you even instead of your weight jumping up so when you get back on track there isn't too much damage. That was a big thing for me. I also think my short but frequent workouts have been a big factor though. 30 minutes 3 times a week after work and one 1 hour session on a Friday after work.
