    Hi I started about 7 weeks ago, only lost a few pounds but have tried hard.  I have under active thyroid so metabolism very slow.  Many people on the site have had rapid weight loss, so it is different for everyone.  I cook slimming world recipes and avoid anything processed, keep me posted, look forward to hearing about your success

    HI Kristina,

    Hope you are getting on ok on the tablets. I am having fertility issues too, I have just been referred but dont really know what the next steps are. I have a son who is 11, I had ectopic pregnancy in 2011 which was awful and i pray i never have to experience that again. I have been on these tablets before about 6 years ago when i lost a lot of weight but the weight gradulay crept back on. Finally last year my nurse convinced me to try again with them, I havent been on them constantly but managed to loose 18lb and i havent been on the tablets since November and havent put anything on which iam pleased with. My plan is to start a fresh today. Ideally i would like to loose another 4 stone.

    Whats your goal?
