I have been looking at my tablets for the last few days anyway today I took the plunge and started them. I missed the breakfast one as I only had some special K with skimmed milk. Lunchtime homemade tomato soup again no fat in it so didnt take the tablet. tonight Im having baked potatoe with a bit of butter on it tuna with lighter than light mayo and a salad Im taking my tablet now as I might have a weight watchers lemon slice as well. I think I dont eat enough or exersize enough thats my problem. I have a mobility problem due to chronic asthma so cant go walking sad thing is I live on a beach in a lovely apartment. My goal is to be able to get out and walk there. I have 4 stone to lose.I like how you all support each other on here.

Hi I have had asthma since I was 16 and I found that the more I exercised the better it got- as long as my triggers didn't interfere! Colds/ smoke hayfever etc.. Swimming was great for my asthma! I have gone from chronic to mild in the last 3 years! Just from exercising more :)

Hi! Good luck- its easy peasy when you get the hang of it. When i first started I took them every meal time just to get into the habit of taking- there's still fat in milk that can be lost lol

I wouldn't say I lost my appetite but I'm not as hungry as I used to be & eat from a smaller plate now as My portions are so much smaller..... Are you eating enough calories though?
