    Hey Sam

    Welcome to LL!!! I love it! I am just finishing my 5th week and it is the best thing I have done! Like you, I lost 14lbs on Rosemary Conley before I started LL. I have lost 25lb in my first 4 weeks of LL and hoping for another 3-4lb this week which will get me my 2 stone in 5 weeks at LL (3 stone overall) and into the next stone bracket!

    I made myself wait to start to be certain I wanted it enough. I then had to wait an extra couple of weeks because of getting my medical form completed - but it was so worth the weight (ha ha).

    You will get alot of support, information and advice from Minimins!

    Let us know what you decide and your start date!

    So exciting!

    Good luck!

    Hello! welcome to the forum!

    I know that feeling well...whenI did LL back in the day, I had to wait 3 months for a group! :mad:

    I won't say it's easy, cause it's not. It certainly can be done and people on this forum are great....and the arcade is nice and distracting :)

    Good luck!!!

    Don't be scared!! I was 24 stone at my heaviest and am now a size ten-have been since November last year!
    I began in Jan 08 having lost a bit before (mainly by ctting out alcohol!) then began LL. It's the best thing I've ever done. The 'easy' bit it not having to eat. The tough bit is when you're at goal and need to keep it off!!
    If you're in the right frame of mind, this is the diet for you. You'll be brilliant I'm sure. Keep coming to visit's been a godsend!!
