Hi I spoke to my LL counsellor today and it looks like I will be starting my LL on 24th jan 08. I asked her to send me medical forms through the post so I can get that sorted. I called my practice nurse to ask her could she give me the medical she wasn't there so I left a message at reception. She then called me back and gave me the shock of my life, she told me that she didn't recommend it and that a lady has died whilst on this. Can someone tell me if this is true, I carn't see a practice nurse making this up. I told her that I was still going ahead and that if I stay at the weight Iam I will die prematurley anyway. She then asked me why I couldn't just follow a healthy eating plan I said that why would I go to lighterlife if I could do that. To say that this has shocked me is an understatement.
