Hi there! I only joined this site today, I am hoping it is full of like minded people trying to stop their knees from hurting by losing a few pounds. I started dieting with the diet plate at the beginning of May and so far have lost 12 pounds. Has anyone else tried this one and have they had any success? I would be interested to know if anyone else has used this method. I have tried all sorts of diets over the years, slimming club, weight watchers, Hay diet, you name it, I've tried it. My goal is to get to 11stone 7lbs, a weight I haven't seen in 20 years so am determined to take it slow and steady. I am in for the long haul and need all the encouragement I can get.
