      hi, that's great and I think the key thing here is exercise.  I have just changed to a very low carb diet but still weight loss slow but I cannot go to the gym as I am disabled..I have just borrowed a friend's vibro plate and trying to do 10 minutes every day...will see it that goes...well done you!

    Prescious, i thought i couldnt go to the gym as i am disabled as well, and have mobility problems, but our doctors have teamed up with local council and they have done me a plan that will make things better, i always used the excuse i cant im disabled, but i am really suprised how much i can do, even aqua fit which is gentle, they are all geared up here for people in wheelchairs..

    week 6  21lbs lost.
