    Hiya

    Does anyone else forget to take the tablet? Is it a newbie thing? I tried to write it into my food diary for each day, so that I can just score it out once I've taken it, but I end up forgetting if I took it or not when it comes to scoring it out! How do you remember? :eek:

    Me! Nearly end of my first week and I forgot to take it twice today!!!! Bit peeved about it too! So I am going to do what Kes suggested, think it was Kez, am going to set my phone with alarm reminders around the time I eat, cos you have up to a hour before or after you eat to take them :) x

    For anyone who takes a pack up to work, put a tablet in your lunch box.
    Before bed, i always tear off the 3 tablet strip and leave on the worktop in the kitchen. I always put one on my plate when having lunch and i always take one whilst i'm dishing up dinner. That way i can see how many i have left on my strip. Its all habit. Try and leave them where you prepare food.

    If you eat out at work, tear your strip off the night before still and when i know i'm going out i put one in my purse.
