    Thumbs up Starting again...

    Hello,

    I have recently passed the mirror in my bedroom a couple of times without my clothes on and I really don't like what I am seeing...
    I need to restart on my diet again.

    As a first step yesterday I bought myself running shoes and I downloaded an app called 'Couch 2 5K'. I've never been much into running, but it's the cheapest and mist flexible way to get into exercise.

    My GP has referred me and my hubby to the NHS weight management service. Does anyone have any experience with that? I am not really sure what to expect.

    As well I am thinking about what diet will work the best for me. I was thinking about diet chef. Did anyone try that and would be willing to share their experiences? Do you have any good experiences with any of the other diets?

    I would love to meet people in the same situation that would want to 'do the journey' together. It's always easier to get and stay motivated with a friend on ones side. Maybe there is even someone from my area here (Lancashire)?

    I really look forward to hearing from you and getting started again. I need to loose those pounds...


    Regards,
    Mrs.S

    Sorry, I don't know anything about the NHS weight management service or Diet Chef, or live in Lanacashire, lol - bit useless to you, aren't I?! I'm a committed calorie counter. How much have you got to lose? Hope you have success with whatever method you choose. xx

    Oh, I wouldn't want to ignore you - I just didn't fit the profile of the questions you were asking, lol. I've lost 8 stone so far, so it's definitely achievable -I'm 50 and don't exercise due to health problems, so when I say if I can do it anyone can, I really mean it! I did go to my GP for support, and she prescribed Orlistat, which I've been taking for 18 months - is that something you'd consider? xx

    Hello Tracy!

    I've never heard of Orlistat. What is that? And what are the criteria for getting it prescribed? Do you know?

    How did you manage to lose 8 stone?

    Thanks,
    Sonja

    Hi Sonja! You may have heard of Orlistat as Alli? That's the version you can buy in pharmacies. It's a fat-blocking drug that stops your body absorbing around a third of the fat you eat, and is the only weightloss drug currently prescribed by the NHS. I think your BMI needs to be over 30, and they expect you to lose at least some weight by yourself first. There's a sub-forum on here dedicated to it, under Other Diet Options. It's not a wonder drug, but it does help, and it's through taking that and calorie counting that I'm now 8 stone down. xx
