    Morning :)

    Delivery is courier so you have to sign for it. I've found that the delivery time is usually good - next day or day after.

    I'm not aware of them delivering on Saturday - may be an idea to give them an email or ring and ask what they can do :) I work from home so am always in to take delivery.

    Can you get it delivered to a neighbour or family member and pick it up after work?

    apparently, they will attempt to deliver twice, if you arent in both times you have to pick it up from citylink (wherever that is!!)

    I'm going to do another 3 weeks - I won't be where I want to be unfortunately as my losses have slowed down considerably, but I want to do the full 2 week 'proper' refeed before I go on a short break in June. I'm hoping I'll lose those 2 weeks too!
    I'm not sure now what I'll do after that but I'm certainly not going to let the DC foods I've still got go to waste so I'm thinking low GI as they fit with that quite well (I THINK that's right .... as I type I'm doubting myself so hopefully someone will confirm that or put me right! Lol)

    How much longer are you going to do? How have you found LL? x

    Last time I ordered the month's supply, I got three boxes, not just one. Two of them were reasonably heavy.

    LL has been ok..but my experience of the counselling and CBT side of it has been pretty appalling.This has put me off quite a bit I must admit,although the results are great.However I plan to do a (4 week) shortened version of the RTM (refeed) before my hols ,and then start DC on my return as I'll still have a few stone to lose.I must admit I'm reaaly looking forward to it!
    Thank you all for your help so far xx
