    Hi all, thought I would start a diary on here. I'm planning to start the tablets tomorrow! Have been reducing my fat intake And increasing carbs before hand as have been on a low carb diet.

    When I first read about the side effects of this pill I was really put off. But since finding this forum I am now looking forward to using them.

    So for the first few days I've had:

    •Natural yoghurt and a few grapes
    •Wholemeal pitta, ham, onion chutney, extra light Mayo
    •Toast and chicken tikka spread
    •chicken fahitas + veg

    •Beans on toast
    •Pitta sandwich (ham + light cheese spread)
    •Few grapes
    •Chicken + veg + few home chips

    Not expecting to lose much after my first week as increase in carbs might affect me as I have PCOS.

    Breakfast: prawns, lettuce, xlight Mayo and a slice of toast
    Lunch: usual pitta sandwich, ham, onion chutney and xlight Mayo instead of butter
    Dinner: pork chop (loin), and lots of veg

    Well yesterday I decided I'd put it off long enough and went out jogging for about half hour. Which is great as a few weeks ago I couldn't even jog to the car (2 minutes away)!!
    And food wise I had
    beans, bacon on toast
    chicken pitta for lunch
    lean pork, cream cheesy mash ( was gonna have roasts but saw this idea on here) and plenty of veg.
    Oh and a ww banoffee thingy

    Today Ive had cream cheese on toast
    planning to have a turkey pitta for lunch
    and maybe roast chicken later for dinner.
    and... More jogging!

    Hi. I'm doing Good thanks. Not so sure if I will lose any this week but fingers crossed lol.

    Well I didn't get in til late yesterday so ended up not jogging. Determined to go today. Had a chicken pasta bake yesterday instead of the roast chicken as someone forgot to get the meat out of the freezer :p

    today I'm having a low fat cereal and skimmed milk
    then my usual lunch at uni + I've discovered pink n whites :)
    for dinner I'm home alone so just a jacket potato + fillings I think

    They are indeed :). Although I could quite easily eat a whole packet!

    Feel on a bit of a downer concerning this weeks weigh in. I know I shouldn't be scale hopping but even just a sign on losing anything would be nice :(.

    Hi Hollie

    I started the tablets 3 weeks ago and like you i also have pcos. Im doing great since i found this forum and like you was terrified to take them after reading all the stuff online but Ive had no side effects at all. I have my 3 week weigh in 2 morrow and im hoping for 3lbs off so I have my first stone lost. I thought with having pcos I would struggle to lose weight but so far so good. I know the weight will start slowly coming off now but need to stick with it.

    Hope you are finding it ok, everyone on here is helpful giving reciepes and just listening x x x:)

    Thanks MrsR :) It's nice to know that it can work for me! and well done on the loss so far! I'm finding the whole diet thing fine, it's actually pretty simple to keep to and I don't crave anything I shouldn't.. I'm hoping I'm just a late starter and that the weight starts to come off next week! lol

    Hi missi70, so far I have had no side effects! :) and apparantly aslong as you stick to the 5g in every 100g and up to 15g per meal, you wont get any. I was worried the first few days but now I'm fine with it, all I found was that I had a bit of a rumbly belly but that's settled down now :) good luck with your first week :)

    So today I've had low fat cereal and my usual sandwich for lunch. Not sure on dinner yet.
    exercise wise, I'm going to walk to my friends instead of drive so that should take me about an hour :) might even throw in a bit of jogging on the way.

    What are pinks and whites...

    Good luck with your weigh in..

    If your doing more exercise, then you might be losing inches rather than weight... make sure you measure yourself
