    Did you check out my first weigh in - up 4lbs (what a silly moo!!!). I am hoping to have this off me when I go and get weighed on Friday. I very nearly gave up when I was weighed as it is hard to do this. :eek:

    FAst start is when you go on ww fast start plan,eirther you go on their food plan for the first week picking meals or you go on lower points so you'd go on 18 points for the first week

    Yes as I really had to get started Id booked a gastric band consultation and I really didnt want a op scared so I did ww again and fast start I did accidentally under my points as if we are over 14 stone we can only have 22 but your under 14 stone so try 18 points and it should be a kick start for you this first week x

    You are welcome - 5.5lbs off is brilliant. I did a sneaky weigh in myself this morning and after being up 4lbs on Friday. I am down 2lbs this morning but I am not taking it for granted till I weigh in on Friday.

    Love the pic of you in your graduation dress. You look fab! :) And there is no gut there at all.
