    Hi,
    My wife & I joined last Sept. & both lost over 2 stone by Christmas. I gained 4lb over Xmas, stuck to the EE plan straight after & lost it + 1lb within a few weeks. My wife gained nothing over Xmas. All we did, was stuck to "free brekkies" Ham & Eggs or Bacon & Eggs usually, had our HEA & HEBs as normal. Stuck to "Free" snacks & fruit but did not count any syn values!
    It's now end of Feb, & still no significant weight increase 1 or 2 lb 1 week but gone the next!
    We are both happy & made this "diet" a eating habit change rather than call it a Diet. So far so good.
    Good luck all

    I've lost 84 lbs since I started, and have been maintaining now for almost 1 year. I have kept on losing some in between, and now I'm almost stable most of the time. I think the secret is keeping on following the maintenance diet and keeping on attending meetings or weight yourself online and follow the message boards. Keep on focusing on it.

    I managed to keep almost 6 stone off, I lost it gradually so hard to say how long I actually kept the whole amount off for - I started to lose weight in 2005.

    These last few months I have put on around 8LB due to the fact that I am unable to exercise like I used to as I had a heart op, but am now introducing gym and walking back in to my life again so I don't foresee any problem in knocking those pounds off again, in fact I want to lose 1 more stone and I'll be done :D

    FYI 2 stone lost following the Food Doctor diet myself
    3 stone off with WW
    last stone a mix of WW and SW.
