    Hey everyone

    Sounds like all the new starts are doing really well. Ive yet to get a start date and im getting really fed up, I emailed the lady and she said she would get back to me as soon as she had a date, that was last week!! Just feeling so frustrated and want to get started!

    Anyway hope everyone is doing good for mid week!

    I was like you and waited and waited after dropping my medical form off. I left a couple of messages for my LLC but she didn't reply until I called Head Office to enquire if she was on holiday or sick. She rang me back fairly quickly and I hope I didn't get her into trouble as she sounded pretty off with me! Oops...

    I concentrated on preparing whilst I waited. I started using slimfast to get used to meal replacements, upped my water intake and cut down on my carbs (but did enjoy some of my favourite meals too).

    I go to pick up my packs etc tonight so tomorrow is day 1 for me. I'll see over the next few days if my preparation has helped for my first week.

    I hate to say it, but reading these posts - it does seem to be a fairly common trait that LLC's do not return calls or emails. Mine, bless her - she is wonderful and a great LLC - but she is rubbish at emailing/calls!! At least has been my experience. I went through much the same thing you are.

    Hang in there - it will happen. :) And good luck when it does. ALl good wishes your way!

    Thanks guys!!

    I went for my prep meeting on 13th august, and sent my signed drs form back two days later. I phoned her and left a message and got no reply so i emailed her and replied last week saying she had my form but no start date yet and would be in touch. I guess she is just waiting for more people but I feel like Ive been waiting ages. She is the only one in our area so will just have to hang on in there but I JUST WANT TO GET ON WITH IT!!!!

    Is there someone else locally? I feel for you. I was lucky and started a week after the initial meeting but don't know what I'd have done if I hadn't...I HAD to get started cos it was the right time! Let us know as soon as you do. Looking forward to reading of your successes!

    There is no other LL councilor for about 120 miles, I guess I should be more patient but I am so impatient. She emailed me back last week saying no date yet and she would be in contact when she has one. I just wondered if I should maybe email her again asking if it will be very much longer, even to sort of know the position im in, if i have just missed out on a group that is starting or im in a group waiting for some more people. I really want to get going so I can be at target or near target for Feb as I have a bridesmaid dress fitting. My friend who is the bride wants to do it as well but she is gonna leave it until after christmas. I just feel im in the right place at the momment and have all the enthuasium to start. Maybe ill email her again.............. I wish i had more patience.
