    From Lighter Life to Weight Watchers

    Hi

    I'm new here, I've been over at the Lighter Life forum! I did LL for a whole week and it was the longest week of my life, I felt utterly miserable and bad terrible headaches. I love food too much not to eat! So I'm back and I'm going to do it the way that was working for me in the summer - Weight Watchers!

    Just wondered whether anyone else had made the transition from a VLE and if you still managed to lose in that first week? I literally stopped LL today and starting WW tomorrow.

    How long will it take me to lose 3-4 stone? I could really do with getting it off by the summer!! Does anything help to speed up exercise?

    Em xx

    Hi
    I have tried LL many many moons ago and never again as felt like I was going mad cos I wanted food so much!!
    I personally think ww is a much better way round it.
    I don't reckon there are any super fast fixes to speed things up but exercise will no doubt help! I'm doing Zumba on the wii at the mo to help.

    Hi, i did lighter life for 14 weeks! After the first few weeks it got easier but i know what you mean about the first weeks headaches etc!
    Anyway i just wanted to say that LL is great for a quick fix diet, i lost almost 5 stone! As soon as i got back to the real world though i put it back on... Now i am about 8kg less than i was when i started LL.
    On my first week of weight watchers and think healthy eating is the way to go... Good luck to you

    I lost almost six stone (one stone off target) on Cambridge and put a stone back on I tried to get back into the swing of things and went sole source for a week - but I felt absolutely dreadful. I do love the bars and want to incorporate them into WW. I just hope my metabolism is ok and will cope with the new regime. I don't mind losing slowly now. In fact, I think it might be better for me long term. Here's hoping.
