    so I thought this is the place for me. This whole forum is so inspirational and supportive, I'm getting more and more excited about finally doing something, properly this time....:)
    I know that we will all help each other. For me just knowing that I am not the only one with so much to loose is great....

    You will be fine - there is a lot of support here.

    I am on Cambridge and started out with 11 stones to lose.

    Have lost nearly 7 stones in 25 weeks so far.

    LL isn't that much different to Cambridge - and we know that they both work.

    Hope all goes well for you

    I have just gone through the posts and I thought well, put everybody in the loop of how I am doing;

    Great, actually. I am 9 weeks in and lost a shiver under 4 stone. I can't believe it.

    I am proud and happy and everything else.

    One big part of my success I feel are you guys. Thank you for just beeing wonderful.

    To everyone who's just starting: do it for yourselves, stick to it and come here for help, support, jokes and a lot of fun and no matter how much you have to loose, you will do it.

    Thanks so far..

    Thank you so much Irene.:)

    I'm possibly beginning to sound like a broken record and if so, please forgive me, but it's this place that makes the whole journey if not possible but a heck of a lot easier..

    Just looked and see you are. How do you manage with your CDC so far away? How often do you see them? Do you get your packs posted.

    Jee, loads of questions...

    well, here we go:

    I do actually not see my CDC because she's 600 miles away in Milton Keynes but I know her because she used to be my neighbour when I lived down south. Because I can't see her, I go and see my doctor once a month to keep and eye on me and sign off my official weight loss sheet for my CDC. She does send my packs in the post and it is really costly but the only way to do it because as far as I'm aware the nearest CDC to me is in Stirling which is about 200 miles (give or take..) so not very good for a weekly commute.

    Now, Irene, yes I do live on Skye and, as it happens, I run a guest house in the "capital" of Portree. Let me know when you want to come up and I will see if I can slip you a little discount...:flowers:

    Would love to meet you and as many of the people on here as poss...

    Hi guys,

    it is lovely on Skye and not cold at all. We are off the coast of North-west Scotland and we have the Atlantic Ocean flowing by so it is quite mild. There actually are some palmtrees on the south end of the island. Snow stays only on the peaks (ok, admittedly until beginning of June) but doesn't really stay on the ground. It is, however, a little wetter and I can't deny that.

    Sounds like I'm working for the Tourist Board...I'm not....

    take care everyone..
