    Well done Lorraine. That's is brilliant. Not surprised you are delighted.

    My next milestone is to get into the 14 stones - don't care if it's 14 3/4 like you are, as long as it's reading 14 stone something. 2lbs to go!

    I get weighed Tuesday for the 3rd time and I really really want to be in the 14 stones so am going all guns blazing to drop that 2lbs by then!

      I've not been weighed by the doctor yet I'm just doing it myself, I've another month before I have to see her again.

      Good luck on the 2lb loss for Tuesday let me know how you get on.

      Have you an end weight goal or are you taking it as it comes?

      I would like to get to 10 stone but the last time I was that weight was about 28 years ago!

      Morning. Yes I do have an end goal and that is 11 stone. Long way to go to hit that so I am just trying to keep in the right mind frame that this is for life and so there is no rush and hopefully by this time in 2 years I may be on the mark. Like a lot of people I started this diet with high expectations that the weight would fall off etc but it has turned out to be very much more difficult than I thought. Despite the tablets, you still have to put all the effort in with both eating and exercise and I am averaging about 1 to 1.5 lbs per week - which to start with I was really pee'd off about because I really thought it would be more. So it has been very slow, but now suddenly I am 3 months into it and it is becoming a way of life and much more automatic - and dare I say it, actually enjoying the changes both to my diet, exercise and body. That takes while to get into though. The first 5 weeks were hell on earth and looking back I really don't know how I stuck at it, and without the support of a lot of these lovely ladies on this forum, I would have cracked. But now, things are much easier.

      My advice = don't weigh yourself. Try to resist. In the first 5 weeks I weighed myself almost daily. But then decided that was a futile thing and stopped. My 2nd month I was convinced I had not lost any as it had been school easter holidays, easter, a number of eating out events and work functions - all revolving around food and drink. Nightmare! But when I went for my weigh in I had lost weight and I was absolutely stunned and delighted. So I say, best leave it to the weigh ins at the docs.

      I'll let you know how I get on Tuesday. Bye for now.

      Hiya

      You're so right about it being a way of life - I find it difficult to get something to eat when dining out because most things have a lot of fat in it.

      After reading some of the posts on here I was looking for a bigger loss than I had got, then I had a think to myself and realised that any loss is a good loss!

      It's not going to be easy and only I can assure a loss so I'm in for the duration as I couldn't carry on gaining weight.

      Wishing you good news on Tuesday xxxx

      I work late 3 nights a week which means less time to eat.
