    Was wondering what the difference is between me going myself to chemist for packs or doing it through my GP.

    Does it still cost the same? Weekly WI's at chemist or doctors?

    Im just being nosey and seeing which way is best :)

    This seems a lot cheaper. Is that the same price a pharmacy near you would charge? If so i need to move lol.

    Ahhh ok.
    Well i have docs appt next monday for something unrelated to this, might mention it to her. Saying that though she can be a hard faced cow when it comes to weight loss. Shes of the diet and exercise only mindset. :(

    Hiya, mines from the GP too, it's cheaper because pharmacys & chemists do it on a "for profit basis" where as the doctors surgeries don't (providing your registered there).

    Also if your doctors a bit of an old hack, ask for an appointment with the nurse or person that specialises in Diets at your surgery. (it's actually a nurse at mine rather than a doctor). They'll then check your blood pressure and do your weigh ins etc instead for you each week.

    Just out of interest Pizzle which surgery do you go to coz you just exactly described a nurse that sees me too! lol

    Hope this has helped.

    OMG pizzle we're both at the same surgery! lol. I know exactly what you mean she was horrible when i first went - she was like "Oh you won't stick to it and people never keep the weight off so don't expect too much etc etc"

    She's been really nice to me lately though coz i've totally proved her wrong! ha ha. Shes my regular nurse too - i don't often get to see the other - and she lovely too.

    It's really nice to know i'm not the only on it from round here!

    Thanks for the info lovely ladies :)

    The doc i see is the same pizzle. Probably weighs about 8 stone soaking wet and carrying a huge sack of spuds!

    Ill give the docs a wee phone tomorrow and see if i can change the doctor.

    Ah your welcome. Wish you luck with Lipotrim.

    Might be worth asking about the diet thing at reception. I'd asked my doctor originally and she just said to ask at reception for an apt with whoever sorts that sort of stuff out! lol

    Let us know how it goes

    that's fair enough! I only came to Brannel a coulple of years ago, i was in meva before that which was where i first heard about lipotrim but i didn't think i was suitable for it back then.

    3 stone later and i think i definitely needed to do it! lol
