    Hi all, Just a wee post to advise that I went to my GP today and he gave me the go-ahead to do LL. He was really interested in what was involved in LL,and wants to see how I do.Best of all he didn't charge me a penny.I'm abit surprised that he was so great about it.I guess I was shaping up for a debate and it never happened! BP was borderline though,and normally isn't!! I have now handed my form into local office and await the phone call:D.
    Thanks to all for recent support x

    Stick to it 100%, it's only for a few weeks of your life. Don't get too worried about your weekly losses. Some weeks you lose more than others, it's common to have a few weeks of low losses and then a big loss.

    Write a list of goals down.. Make them mini goals, such as half stone at a time & treat yourself (non-foodie thing) every time you reach one.

    I'm doing a money jar, every time I lose 1lb I add £1. At the end I'll treat myself probably to something like a proper photo shoot..

    Write a list of what's motivating you to start this diet.

    Drink your water, as much as you can!
