    vibro plate?

    Are those those things that are like using a pneumatic drill?

    Seem really weird to me - would be keen to hear how it works - apparently though they do work and are very good at upping your metabolism

    Ok so I havent recovered from my official weigh in yet :wave_cry:

    I officially weigh 15 stone 8lbs! I cant believe it. I feel as big as a house.

    Im doing ww in work so its an 8 week plan initially. I plan to loose 10 - 14 lbs in this 8 weeks.

    Ive 8 months to my wedding but my sister said realistically Ill only loose about 16lbs in that time?? Surely more?

    Your first few weeks losses can be a lot more than 2lbs but after that they tend to be 2lbs or so. Up your exercise and stick to your points and you'll be fine! Good luck x

    Like Lea says (and she is living proof!!) you can lose way more than 16lbs in 8months - that would amount to only half a pound a week

    Even at 1lb a week it would be 32lbs or so and with a concerted effort, you could do more than that

    Set realistic but stretching goals - some mini targets like activity points goals etc and you'll soon be well on your way.

    Good luck xx
