    Lighterlife
    So my story over the last couple of months.

    I joined weight watchers in Nov 2006 and there were times where i couldnt stick to it, but then the times that i did i always gained weight, so i gave that up in january. Ate normal and didnt put on much weight throughout january,

    In Febuary i saw an old college lecturer and was amazed at how much weight she'd lost. i found out the diet she was doing was lighterlife, id already looked at this and also looked at the price, knowing that i wasnt going to pay that much to do something that i didnt think would work, like every diet that i tried, but seeing her completely changed my views, so after i worked out that i could afford it, because i wouldnt be spending my money on rubbish anymore, i went to an information night about lighterlife at the beginning of March, went to the doctors and got my check up and then didnt here anything for two weeks when i got a phone call asking if i wanted to start that class.

    So Wednesday 14th March i started my weight loss journey again! for the 100th + time, but with lighterlife, as with any other diet at first i didnt think it was going to work, altho seeing somebody who has now lost 6stone. i still had my doubts.

    Ive never found a diet so easy to stick too aslong as you get the thought of food out your head.

    I know this is just the beginning of it and i have a long way to go, but i really think this time i really will end up what i want to be.

    Ive been doing lighterlife for 4 and a half weeks and lost 19lbs

    So now im lookin for people to help me along the way, which i will do to them of course.

    Hi Simply

    Glad to hear that LL is working out so well for you - it really is great isn't it. I started on the 2nd March and it's the best thing I ever did, I've never done a diet that I have found so easy to stick to before.

    Please keep posting and let us know how you get on.

    Welcome, Simply Unique,

    You have come to the right place for help, support and advice. I found this site in November, a few months after starting LL in August. There are loads of people who are at your stage in the programme, and loads too who have been through it (and survived). Keep posting your experiences and questions, and we'll all be here to answer them and celebrate when you achieve your goals!

    Best of luck!
