    Welcome to both of you. Hope you have much success with the blueys. Get into the habit ofn reading food labels for the fat content of stuff. Some of it is quite surprising eg 5 grams of fat in an egg yolk. Good luck.

    Wholemeal rice

    Hi and welcome to both of you!

    Wow - I didn't know that about egg yolks!!

    Carly, you can see from the side panel how posts you have written.

    My mainstay foods at the moment are cottage cheese and chicken pittas. I tend to marinade my chicken have it in toasted pittas and salad, oh and lots of homemade soup too!

    Hi Jules and Carly, welcome to the forum! I'm also 17 and a half stone, and I'd like to get down to around 11st, as I'm quite tall and I don't want to be stick thin. The forum here is excellent for tips and advice, so make sure you use it to your advantage! Keep us updated on how you're doing, good luck! :)

    I am also new to this, so any help or ideas will be greatly appreciated. I started on monday with the tablets and all seems to be going well so far.

    Passiflora those chicken pittas sound yummy, may give them a try sometime, although i am trying to stay away from bread!!

    Hi Rach, I love my bread too!! Give me a tiger tails loaf any day of the week! I find that with Pitta bread, I'm getting the bread that I crave, but without so much of the guilt. Our toaster at work keeps giving up with the amount of pittas going in it from everyone!!

    Glad everything seems to be going well for you so far. This site is brilliant for help and advice, don't hesitate to ask anything, I've gotten so much info from this site in a such a little time, it really does keep me on the straight and narrow! (unlike my hips!!;))

    Oh tiger bread with anchor butter now your making me hungry:eek:

    I was thinking of doing diary as i'm really not sure i what i am eating is right or too much... then i could get peoples opinions even if i only did it for a short while till i knew i was doing ok!! How long has it taken you to lose weight? and what the situation with dress sizes?

    Keep it up everyone, and with each others support we will get there!!!:D
