    Hi all

    Just a quickie - when you move to RTM, do you continue to have to have your 4-weekly medical check-ups? And if so, at what point do they stop - I assume they must do at some point once you're eating a certain amount?

    Thanks :)

    I think you only need the 4-week checkup when you are on abstinence - I haven't had one since starting RTM. Once you start RTM I guess you are on a low-calorie diet rather than a VERY Low Calorie diet. The reason for the checkups is that LL follow the NICE guidelines about vlcds

    It was getting to be a real pain getting all those blood pressure tests done...

    Hi Lucy

    I see your lovely sister at our Maintainer's group - she made us a lovely mousse -I understand you were in our neck of the woods last week-end.
    You don't need to have the check ups once you come off abstinence.
    Hopefully we are all nice and healthy by then.

    Thanks SB - was on the phone to my sis earlier and she was telling me how gorgeous BL's gazpacho (no idea how to spell it!) was! I just wish I was closer so could join your guys maintainers group - they sound like fun! :)
