The average loss is a stone a month, so in theory, yes if you stick to the diet you can lose 2 stones by Xmas. Im on the 790plan and Im losing approx a stone per month (well it would be if I didnt cheat so much).
Thanks for your replies. I'm disappointed tho becuase I just heard back from a counsellor that I've got to see a doctor before i can start because I take medication for PCOS. With the postal strike and me goign away for a couple of weeks it could be ages before I get to see my GP.. I'm quite disappointed and wishing Id never mentioned the medication now.
When are you going away?
When I went to see my CDC for the first time, I was also disappointed that I had to see a GP first (I'm diabetic and was on medication).
I went straight from my CDC's to the surgery, asked for an appointment ASAP ... the lovely lady there got me in that afternoon, I saw the GP, chatted about the diet, he signed the form and I was back at my CDC's the same day.
I know this isn't always possible but push against those barriers and you might find they just crumble!
Thanks for your replies, that's really good advice Russian Doll. I've called Rachel the cousellor and left her a message about picking a form up. If she says it's ok then I'll try to see my GP tomorrow. This site is great - it's full of support and fantastic advice.
PCOS is in my family and although ive not been diagnosed with it i have all the symptoms. My sister came off her medication for it and followed WW and lost 4 stone....
She never went back on the medication.
It may be worth you talking to your GP about actually NEEDING the medication.... just a thought
Good luck honey xxxx
