1. Hi all,

    I'm seeing my cdc tonight and hopefully start the diet for the 1st time tomorrow, all going well. My husband wants to do it along with me but he has high blood pressure so will need to see his GP 1st. So we'll see what happens.

    Anyway just thought I'd say hi and I'll keep you updated as to how I get on.

    Hi Tiara,

    I hope your husband can join you as it would be wonderful support for each other.

    Losing weight is one of the best things you can do for your blood pressure:)

    Good luck with your weight loss journey and be sure to let us know how you both get on.

    I am just wondering how many couples we have doing their weight loss journey together....think this calls for a new thread.:)

    Love Mini xxx
  5. Hi Mini,
    I hope he can too. Apart from anything I think it will so much easier for me. I'll still have my daughter to cook for but I think I can cope with that. He's going to come with me tonight I think so that we can talk more about it with the CDC. I've only talked to her briefly on the phone so far so hopefully get more info tonight.

    Hi Tiara

    Good luck with your meeting tonight and with your CDC.

    I had high BP and had to get my doctor to sign. I must admit that I was worried about going to the doctors and how it would be received, but I shouldnt have worried because she was extremely supportive and is behind me. She didnt want to stop my medication but said she would monitor me every 5 to 6 weeks. I also have a wrist monitor at home and already it has reduced by quite a bit and thats only after 13 days.

    so every good luck to your husband too. Its one of the main focus I have to stick with it because I hate taking the medication.
    Dont forget to let us know how you get on

  11. I think he will be allowed to do it but his BP was so high at one point he was in hospital and now takes a combination of 4 different tablets. We'll see what the doc says though.

    That's amazing that your BP has dropped already. That's a motivation in itself!! Well done.

  19. Hi all,
    Thank you all for your good luck wishes. It means a lot to me. Last night went fine. I saw my CDC who is very nice and came home with a weeks supply.

    Well this is day one. I haven't actually had any packs yet. Just about 2 pints of water. I'm away to have a shake so I'll see how that goes. Hubby has had one and said it was ok. Because he has high BP he is still going to follow the diet but add a meal a day too. To start with anyway.

    I have about 10stone to lose. I basically need to lose half my body weight... Scary thought! I'm trying not to think about it like that though. 1 day at a time! Maybe once I start seeing the weight come off I'll feel braver and imagine myself at target. For now I'll think about this week.

    Thanks again to you all. I'll keep posting and let you know how I'm getting on. For now I'd better go and do some work.
