    Hi All

    I am a 25 year old female (26 on Sunday) and am looking to loose 1-1.5 stone. Would Slim fast be an option in achieving this?

    I have a target date in mind, although I would like to be on goal and maintaining by this date.I got proposed to last weekend by my wonderful boyfriend! He took me to the lake districts, got a 4 poster bed, we had snow on the saturday morning, went to carlilse shopping and some roman forts during the day and on Saturday evening we had a huge fireworks display at the hotel!

    So, by August 14th 2010 I want to be 8.5 - 9 stone, preferrably 8.5. I want to do this in a way that my fiancee wont find too much and in a way that I can still enjoy an odd meal out with him and the odd evening treat with him. We gym a lot, probably 4-5 times a week for half an hour at a time.

    I did the Cambridge Diet last year and lot 3 stone, but since stopping I have stayed the same weight. I figured this time around Slim Fast would be a much much cheaper option!

    Do you think Slim Fast is an option I can take? If so, is there any advice or information anybody wishes to share with me? Or any other people of the same age with the same sort of losses wanted that wants to buddy up for support?

    Thanks
    Shell

    Congratulations on the proposal... it sounds like the perfect scenario.

    I can't see why Slim Fast wouldn't get you to your goal by August, you're asking for less than 1lb per week which is very achievable in my opinion.

    Good luck with your goal and welcome to the Slim Fast section of Minimins x

    welcome, and congrats on the wedding planning!!!
    if you really want to lose the weight you will.. just takes a bit of will power and some time... we can set our minds to anything we want and stick to it when we want!!

    Good luck!
