Been on the blueys for nearly a year. At the start the weight fell off, I felt so amazing! My appetite had really shrunk, a typical dinner for me would be a grilled chicken breast with a plain baked potato, or a couple of pitta breads warmed with some brown sauce on them, rice, cous cous etc. I wasn't doing any exercise, didn't really need to since it was falling off so quickly.
I should probably mention I have Hypothyroidism too, this makes it much harder to lose weight as the thyroid is slowing my metabolisim down.
After the weight seemed to stop coming off I stopped taking the blueys. Not intentionally, I just kept forgetting. At this point, I'd lost 2 stone, over about 6 months.
I wasn't taking any from about September, through to early January this year. I put on nearly half a stone in that time, which I found hard to get my head around as I'd stayed to eating really low fat food, nothing above 5% fat. Went back on the tablets early Jan, lost a few pounds (basically everything I'd put on), but can't seem to get any new ground on it. I'm basically 19 stone now, and can't seem to lose any more. I've done a bit more exercise, I know I could do more. I do have a very active job now though, since November. I work in a hospital in theatres, so I'm on my feet all day running around, I thought this would really help, but it doesn't seem to have done much other than give me sore knees.
If I'm honest with myself, my portions could be smaller, and I could eat less carbs, most of my meals seem to contain a high proportion of carbs at the moment, so I know I could rectify that. And I could cut down on my sugar intake, I need to get a kick someway, and the odd sweet treat has been my vice, I simply can't face cutting everything enjoyable out.
Any advice you have I'd be really greatful for as I'm getting quite desperate now.
