I've just seen this in the Apple App Store - does anybody know anything about it or tried it? It seems to have good reviews but its not cheap a £7.49!

I need something to control snacking (eating DDs leftovers in particular) and my portions - which are huge. I also need inspiration to lost about a stone in 7 weeks for a wedding in June, for which I need to fit into a dress I last wore 6 years and 2 DCs ago.
Any thoughts? Shall I give it a go?

Hi All - I've been using this app for a year now - used to post a lot but went over to the Easyloss FB group. The app has worked so well for me - I lost over 2 1/2 stone and have kept it off for 7 months. Is there anyone still around from last year? How is it going for you linkainka & Frenchtart? The FB group is a very good source of support and there's lots of motivating success stories.

I feel like I've taken a trip down memory lane ....

I'm starting today. I've been on 5:2 for 6 months and after an initial loss of almost a stone, I've pretty much STS for 4 months.

I have at least 3 stone to lose and I'm determined to do it.

hello, i've just downloaded the lite app today & listened to the 1st one while i did the dishes. does that count? i've tried Paul McKenna's HGB but it didny work for me, though i must say i'm a lot happier following his four rules than some godawful restrictive diet. just looking for a quicker loss really. thought i'd try the lite app for free instead of paying seeing as PM didny work!

I did really well with this last year, then life went pear shaped and I've put most of it back on sad

I've tried again, and find it easy for a week or so, but I can't get it to click like it did last year.
Any tips to get the magic back?

eating slowly & only when you're really physically hungry & stopping when you're satisfied have meant even when i've not been losing iv've not been gaining either. seems to be the key to maintenance.

Hi Guys
Just listened to my day one of the ipad ap and im so glad i have found others in the same situation. If anyone wants extra support (texts emails) get in touch as i feel the more support we get the better.

Cant wait for day two but on nights so will listen to it when i get to bed in the morning. Good Luck all

hello jooles how's it going for you?

i did session one for 6 weeks with no joy, so switched to session two (i know, not following guidelines of 2lb loss <slaps wrist>!) as i was bored of three fat toes!! then surprise magical 3lb loss in 1st week! gobsmacked as i felt i'd eaten lots of crisps/chocolate etc. more than usual that week. haven't dared weigh mysel since! on facebook there's a group & their response was that different sessions suited different individuals differently, so i'll stick with sesh 2 & see how it goes.

I've just downloaded this and have reserved scales at Argos to assess the current state of affairs.

I suspect I am somewhere over 12 stone.
