    Lottiebird, do you go to a class or follow an on line plan? Your weight loss is very good so far, have you followed this plan throughout?

    I go to class, and have done SW throughout. I do enjoy it as I feel like I'm learning to eat properly, I've tried every quick fix going, but I need to retrain myself and learn new, healthier habits for life.

    Well Calorie Counting and exercise is a sure thing as it worked really well when I worked a job with regular hours and could walk home from work (4km).

    However I changed jobs and the hours are nuts so this time I add herbalife/meal replacement shake because it is easier to count calories when all I have to worry about is one meal.

    Thanks skinnybodyc. Can I ask what is skinny fiber? I've not heard of it before. Looking at your weight loss stats it's certainly working for you!

    Its a fiber filled capsule with only 3 ingredients 100% natural ,You take two with water approx 30 mins before you eat twice a day .It swells up to 50 times its size and so fills you up and you eat less.I actually only started to take it to help my IBS but it was amazing ,my huge 40 in stomach shrunk down to 35 in just two weeks and the weight started to come off.No ibs flare ups since .I added it to the other diet forums with all the info on ingredients its quite long lol.

    Ive tried most diets and had some degree of sucess as well as failure and i wanted a life time change not just a diet to lose weight with, thus i choose primal/paleo as i feel its the best choice for me cutting out all the processed/pretend food that are laden with chemicals and opting for a more natural healthy way of eating :-)

    Im thinking of cutting all that out to ,Not as part of any weightloss plan but because of all that is in the news now .I think going back to cooking everything from scratch myself is the safest option. Now lets see how long i last on this before time constrictions kick in.

    Is that the plan that Big Brother's Josie followed? Her transformation is really dramatic. I'm following S&S now but I think that when I return to 'normal' eating I will follow a diet that is made from natural ingredients and unprocessed food. I look forward to following your progress.

    I do SW and I've been at it for 5 weeks and lost 16lbs. I chose it because 2 of my friends (they are sisters) both lost so much on it in a few months and it seemed easy to follow. I love pasta and rice and don't ever eat chips so it seemed the ideal diet as you can eat as much pasta and rice as you want on it. I haven't been hungry at all the whole time and it seems to be working really well. My mother and sister are both doing it with me and we all stay to class which definitely helps! Me and y sister have both lost over a stone and my mother has lost 11lbs.

    I chose to start my weight loss process with a VLCD (I'm Obese class 1) to lose a nice bit of weight in the beginning to motivate me. After this I will be following a low GI diet as it made sense to me as a long term way of eating. I tried weight watchers before but found while I stuck to the diet and was losing weight (very slowly) I was still getting away with eating rubbish. I need the "strictness" of a regiment for the beginning. I'm also booked in to do a healthy eating cooking course! Lifestyle change!

    I think you have to be honest with yourself when picking a diet plan. Where are you messing up? What does your diet need to be like for you? Does calorie counting bore you senseless? Is your portion size outta control? Then research. Not every diet works for every person. I'm hoping what I've chosen will work for me and I researched it a lot and considered how I would fit into it before choosing it. Fingers crossed!
