    Hi All

    i have tried slimming world which i lost 2 and a half stone on!! but come to a stand still (plus put back on a stone)
    I have tried weight watchers (not for me)
    Now I've started calorie counting since monday (3/3/2014) so far its going great but just wanted to know at 13 stone 9lbs is 1200 calories to little?? as i don't want my body to go into starvation mode!!??
    I also would to know how much weight people have lost and how long it as took them
    Thanks Jo

    Hi im doing a mixture of sw & calorie counting.If you start at 1200 you have no where to go to when you lose weight as you cant really go any lower than that.Maybe start off with 1400-1500 so when you get nearer to goal you can reduce to 1200? x

    no worries I wish I could stick to 1200 cal a day everyday but I love food far too much,you can also work out your calories over a week & have dif everyday keeps your body guessing like calorie shifting x
