Hi, I have started taking or lists 4 weeks ago. I have my 1st official weigh in at the doctors and am worried/scared! Did anybody else feel like this? Am doing this along side slimming world and get weighed weekly there. According to there scales I have only lost 2lb. Has anybody else been like this?

also what sort of excersie do people partake in? I do circuit and met fit twice a week. Not sure if this is too much at the beginning?

Sorry for a lot of questions just don't have anyone to ask x

    Hello

    EVERYONE feels like that before weigh in days even people not even on the tablets. Exercise wise i walk/do squats i don't go to the gym because i just wouldn't even though i have lost a ton of weight..hmm..

    2lb off is still better than 2lb on.

    I don't think i have seen your username before are you new to the boards?

    Hello and welcome to the forum :-)

    Its usual to feel anxious prior to being weighed and we have a quite a few members whose weight loss has been slower than others, you just got to stick with it.

    I try to swim as much as possible and have now joined a fitness club, where I will try to do 3 classes of aerobic's each week.

      I dont even dare look in a mirror when wearing a swimsuit, or I would never be able to go! I started swimming again 3 months ago, I felt so very self conscious at first, but gradually it got easier!

      I am now trying to build my fitness levels up and hopefully tone my body up a bit. I have Slendertone abs, arms and shorts to help tone me a bit, but unfortunately it does not happen overnight! sad

      Yeah I no what u mean, I find it hard to discuss exercerise with my family as both my brothers are personal trainers. So it doesn't help that we argue. So never ask for advice of them.

      I think once I start feeling better in myself I will hit the pool, 

      if it did happen over night we would all be supermodels x

      When I first decided to go swimming I put on my swimsuit at home and thought, well lets just go down there, you dont have to go in the pool.

      I got in the changing cubical and thought, what the heck, I'm here now, go for it!....I used to feel anxious about getting out of the pool too, but I just got sick of being the prisoner of my own body.

      Now I dont give a flying fig what anyone thinks about my size!
