    Hello, I'm another newbie and I'm really hoping for some weight loss support. I don't really feel like I can talk to my husband about dieting -he just rolls his eyes and says he doesn't care what I weigh. Well, I care! Was on WW last year and it worked for me but then had a traumatic job loss and move across the country. So, loss of all friends and motivation and support. I'm trying Dukan now and it seems fairly easy so far. But I freak out easily if my weight doesn't consistently go down and then beat myself up and want to quit trying. I'm hoping that I will find the motivation, support, and patience I need here!

    Hi!
    You'll definitely find plenty of support here. Usually I end up giving up after a week, on my third week now and minimins has really helped to keep me motivated :D Good luck x

    Thanks everyone! It's going well so far. Lost 5 pounds on attack and now moving on to cruise. So excited for some variety.

    hi everyone - Im new - just joined today and wanted to say hello and ask some advice! (how do I make this writing smaller??) I did LL two years ago and lost 5 stone - I've since put it all back on :( I had my first baby 4 months ago - Sophies a wee gem and i dont want her to have a fat unhealthy mummy! LL is too expensive and I am on my own - so cant get out to the classes anyway. I started Avidlite on Monday - I ve been feeling starving but I know the way it works - and hopefully itll pass soon! Do any of you know - the meal reaplcement shakes - does one constitute one meal? I've been having two MRP bars (1 meal according to pack) and 3 shakes - is this the correct daily amount? advice please! Thanks x
