Well I joined a well known slimming group as have been unsuccessful trying to guess how to lose weight by myself and have lost 7 and a half pound in 2 weeks. The first 2 weeks tends to be fluid loss so I might slow down now on but nevertheless I am really feeling chuffed!

Wish me well as got another load to go....

    Well done Elizabeth!

    7.5 lbs is a great start and yes you'll probably slow down but you're on the way 8)

    Will you do some gentle exercise if you're able as well do you think?

    I wish I had the motivation myself so I really applaud you

    Keep going

    Hi Janie,

    I was starting to make excuses to not go out, that was my motivation, plus the rheummy is always asking if i've put on weight in a concerned voice so I thought i'd better do something.
    I have to say it has been easy to follow this diet my only problems have been leftovers- I used to eat them without thinking. So I have had to control that and have not always been successful.
    I'm not sure about the exercising. I did like using an exercise bicycle at the physio and hydrotherapy so could pick up on them again.

    Congratulations Elizabeth on your weight loss, I am pleased you have found a programme that works for you.
    Wish I could just cut down on coffee and sugar :smile:
