    Sorry Clare, I can't answer that.  All I'd say is that you need to stick with it.  All bodies are different, what works for some doesnt always work for another.  If you know you are doing it right then dont give up.  Maybe bring it up with the doctor next time you visit....

    I didn't lose anything in the beginning but after 6 weeks on them I'm 12 lb lighter. I'm not extremely active but I do walk quite a bit. Best advice is to drink as much water as u physically can. I drink approx 3 litres. It's helped so much cos I'm not hungry my skin is much clearer and I feel better in myself. I was a diet coke drinker b4. Like 2 litres a day lol. 

    If u are doing exercise eating low fat / less calories u should definitely see some weight loss I'm sure!
