    Make sure you set yourself a WI day and move your ticker on that day. Try and keep the WI to once a week, at the same time of day and same place. Weight fluctuates daily so having one official WI will give you a more accurate reading xx

    do you have a typical menu we could have a look at? you dont have a large amount to lose going on your BMI so mybe upping the exercise and drinking more fluid may help.

    Sorry I cant comment on the metabolism tablets as I have never tried them.

    Chin up Hun, you will lose those extra pounds xx

    I spent years doing weight watchers/slimming world etc. I stuck to them 100% and never lost a significant amount of weight. I'm afraid the only diets that worked for me was Lipotrim and Cambridge Diet. Atkins was good too, but too easy to slip up. If you are desperate to lose the weight, read the lipotrim thread. There are some inspirational guys on there. Good luck hun.x

    Maybe you'd be best consulting a doctor about dieting if you're diabetic?

    Charisma, I know where you're coming from. My GP has always come across as very practical- as in the advice he'd probably give me is 'eat less, exercise more'- very good advice, but useless when thats what I've been doing to no avail! I do think I'm going to go see him too...armed with my food diary and weigh-in chart so he can see exactly whats been happening? Anything else I can say that might get me some sympathy & effective help/advice? Am trying to keep positive.....
