    Hi, just wondered where people are from - I've just started (day 3 nearly over!) and wondered:
    1. if there was anyone from the high peak area
    2. and which pharmacy they use,
    3. and how supportive they are !?
    PS... i've made my husband hide the scales, I'm becoming obsessed by them !:p
    Good luck everyone

    Hi Nerac

    I am from High Peak!!!!!!!! I dont go to a pharmacy in my area as I work in Altrincham, so go there as it is easier.

    I think there is a co op pharmacy in Marple, not sure if it is Marple or Marple Bridge and there is a girl I used to go to college with that went there. From what she told me at the time (1 yr ago) they were quite strict and even measured your ketosis levels which you find not many do.

    Good luck and maybe we can keep each other encouraged.

    Hi Chelly
    Beautiful part of the country :) I can say that and am Scottish :)
    It borders Cheshire and Derbyshire, and it is only about 30-40 mins from Manchester, and around 30 mins from Buxton.

    It is kind in the country but near enough to the towns and cities.....do a google search and you will see some lovely places.

    Didnt realise - dohhhhhh - you were from Northern Ireland, never been before but my sister goes every year.

    Hi Nerac123

    Im from high peak area - Buxton! The pharmacy I use is called clowes pharmacy the nearest one to where I live. They are really nice in there and very supportive, its a very small pharmacy so your weigh in is quite private as the scales are behind the counter.

    The only thing is that they do not have any facilities for ketosis stick checks and dont put your results on the computer, but the lady there and the pharmacist mr clowes is very nice!!

    Oooh, J-Lo00b, I was considering clowes - but have opted for Jaybee's pharmacy in offerton - as I work in stockport and live in chapel, so buxton is the opposite way for me. They are ok - just got more information from this site than from the pharmacist ! however, I haven't had my first weigh in yet (thats tomorrow I think - although I only started on Wednesday this week and am going tomorrow to swap my hideous chicken soup !! - so the pharmacist may decide to weigh me).

    I am pleased there are some locals on here !

    Scotsmist is right chelly - it is truely beautiful around here - I wouldn't move for anything !

    It sure is Tegzy!!!
    You know I used to visit Carlisle on my holidays when I was young as my cousins/aunt/uncle live there.

    Used have some great times :)

    Still love the place, although not been for a few years.

    What do you fancy doing Tegzy?

    Yes, independence is lovely. I remeber when I was 19 and I left home and me and three girlfriends had a flat! It was wonderful and such a great time we had as well.

    Gosh, that was almost 25 yrs ago, but yet it feels like yesterday and I dont feel any different now!!

    I'd not heard of High Peak either - bad really considering I go up to North Cheshire to visit my sister and it sounds like it isn't too far away! I'm in Hampshire, the north, and am lucky that there are 3 pharmacies close by who do LT and another 2 between here and Reading. Makes us a bit spoilt I guess!

    Sounds good! You can usually get a job in the practice and they train you cant you? Well, that used to be the case when I was younger as I had an interview for a job as a dental nurse when I was about 16 - oh...that was a long time ago though.

    You should start investigating on the net, if not already done so!

    It took me years to know what I wanted to do,,bummed about and did temp jobs as I just didnt seem to know what I wanted.
