    Hi,

    Height 5,8,

    Start Weight 115 kilos (18 stone) need to lose 5 stone

    29/04/09 1st WI = 110.35

    06/05/09 2nd WI = 109.45

    13/05/09 3rd WI = 107.80

    20/05/09 4th WI = 107

    31/05/09 5th WI = 105.55 - been on hols!

    10/06/09 7th WI = 104

    17/06/09 8th WI = 102.45

    24/06/09 9th WI = 101.25

    08/07/09 11th WI = 99!

    2.5 stone! :lol:

    I plateaued for about five days and thought nothing would be lost this time!

    One tip, I was talking to my pharmacist about the lack of support from MAP, and they gave me a super pack that you were sent when MAP were doing the helpline. Might be worth you asking your pharmacists if they have some lying around. It has a fat calore counter, tape measure , etc as well handy tips and planners.

    The best news I got from my doctor is that because I am losing so much weight I will be able to have an operation I need to have. That is the reason why I was put on Orlistat was because I was too heavy for the surgery so it would be too risky to do it. Not anymore!

    Good luck to you all and keep going

    well done - i'm happy for you.

    I've lost 1 stone 2 pounds in 8 weeks.

    Weight loss has slowed down past week or so as I'm back at work as a teacher and forgetting to take my tablet. Also work load at weekend means i'm missing meals and tablets.

    I need to keep positive and know that i can keep loosing - just have to take the tablet.

    Well done again - you deserve it for all your hard work.

    Nearly FOUR and a half stone!

    Definitely slowing down now, my BMI is 27 and I have been told that I will stop when it is 25 as I will then be classed as normal weight.

    Bought a gorgeous jersey dress today from M and S and leggings and long boots, all of which I would never have been able to buy before.

    Good luck to you all and keep going!

    Hi all, I havent posted in a while but I just been reading how well everyone is doing and thought Id let you know how I was doing, on Sunday I hit my 5 stone weight loss, I feel great my husband thinks he has a new wife and people are shocked when I tell them how much Ive lost, I still have more to go, and Dr has said he might not me stay on them after a year which will be at the end of the year which Im nervous about :-( There is only one downside, its costing me a fortune in clothes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but its something I can live with lol, so keep going everyone and youre all doing FAB X

    I too haven't been on this website for a while. The weight loss is continuing but is slowing a little so I've bought an exercise bike and this has helped kicked start the loss again. I've been on the blue tabs for nearly 11 months and so far I've hit a loss of 6.5 stone - only 8 more pounds to go before I can say that I've lost 100 pounds. I bought a new suit this week from the Arndale Centre and was so chuffed that I didn't have to get one from the 'fat man' websites. Also bought jeans the other week for the first time in about ten years - its so nice not to have to wear jogging bottoms. Things are certainly better health wise and I am really enjoying the new lease of life. Hope everyone else keeps up the good work and can start to feel the benefits also.

    Regards

    Andy

    FIVE STONE!!!!!!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I am now buying size 14 clothes, which I still cannot believe.

    My BMI is still classed as overweight, apparently another half a stone and I will be normal weight. I am still on the blues as my nurse says i will naturally plateau then its the hard job of maintaining.

    Anybody got any tips on mainitaining? I have been told that I need to up my fat to stop losing weight and maintain - is this right?

    Good luck to you all and keep going!
