    You will need to if your BMI is over 40 but I am not sure whether the medication will need your doctors signature or not. Good Luck with it xx

    I can't say for certain whether you'll need your GP's approval before starting CD as I don't know all the medication you're taking, but by the sounds of it it's unlikely.

    Good luck for Friday! :)

    Thanks hun!

    I was as excited/nervous as you before I started - but absolutely promised myself to stick to it absolutely religiously for the first week come hell or high water! I did and lost 11 lbs that first week which encouraged me to carry on to Week 2 .. and so on.

    It's strange to begin with and obviously you feel a bit hungry and might get a bit headachey or light-headed for a few days, but as long as you drink as much water as you can (I did 4 litres a day - every day) then you'll be fine :)

    Just keep reminding yourself that "Nothing tastes as good as being slim feels" :D

    Good luck!

    You will need to get a doctors sig if you are using an inhaler. Hopefully your CDC can give you the forms, and you can get them signed nice and quickly...then you'll be ready to rock :clap:
