    Hello everyone, my name is Anella, 26yrs old from Anglesey, N.Wales :)

    I haven't yet edited my signature & picture on here so give me time & hopefully it will be done! So, I am currently (well, last time I weighed myself about a week ago) around 12st 8lbs. I'm 5ft 7in & in the past I have always been between 10 & 10 & a half stone. However meeting my current partner & no I'm not blaming him.. but we got a little cosy *cough* & lazy *cough* & before you know it, we both put weight on. I've put on over 2st & my partner has about 4st to lose *gulp*

    In the past I HAVE been on the Dukan diet which worked brilliantly I did lose a lot of weight, but (I'll be honest here) - I was cheating a little & not adding enough veg & TOO much protein. It ended up playing havoc on my body & I was told by the GP to not do anything as extreme again. Yup, I was pretty much just eating boiled eggs, chicken, prawns & crabsticks all day. With sweetened tea of course. Not good!

    I've seen Slim Fast around lately, everywhere I go.. & so I decided to visit Amazon & read some reviews (which were all positive)! I went online onto Boots the other day where the tins were half price & ended up buying £20's worth (6 large tins of banana, chocolate & strawberry)! They have arrived today, I'm hoping to start tomorrow. I'm not planning to follow it EXACTLY as it says (as in buying other Slim Fast branded products - snacks). I'm planning to have a shake in the morning then either a shake for lunch & the 600cal dinner or the other way round, a healthy lunch & a shake for dinner.

    Firstly, does everyone think this would be ok? - By healthy lunch I mean something like Cuppa soups, a ham sandwich or tuna pasta/baked potato etc. As for dinner I'll be eating fish/chicken and veggies! I'm not going extreme anymore! I have a gym *not as glamorous as it sounds as it's in the garage outside in the freeeeing cold!!!* but there is a treadmill, exercise bike, weights & rowing machine.. so I will be exercising as well. Plus we have two chihuahuas that need walking every day, so that's my exercise for when I'm not feeling like the gym!

    I have a Nintendo Wii (Wii Fit) which I use to weigh myself.. so I'll do that tomorrow morning & report back here with my weight & hopefully update my signature with all my goals etc. I have joined forums in the past like Dukan Diet ones but unfortunately no-one really replied & I didn't get any motivation from it. I honestly hope that this forum is different, I would love to make some new dieting buddies! :)

    Going to nosey around some other posts now, thanks for reading! - If you want to see what I look like for now, visit my blog & click on the 'About Me' page!

    Hello :)

    Thanks for the reply! I wasn't sure if this had been posted or not! Well there's been some bad news since my post. I went on the slim fast diet for a week. YES I did it properly, as in shake for brekkie & dinner - healthy 100cal snacking & veggies and fish for dinner. If anything I put on a 1lb!! However.. I've recently been to the Doctor & I have been for blood tests today. He suspects I have an underactive thyroid. I have ALL symptoms, being cold, depressed, dry hair, nails, shaky, no energy and yup - putting on weight & not being able to lose it! :( :(

    I'm gutted. We are waiting for the results, but it looks very likely I have this. I will hopefully get some help towards that & only then will I continue with the slim fast & I'll be back here!! :) Just seems a waste of money going through my tubs if I won't lose the weight! Will keep you all updated!! :) x
