Well please pass me some of your motivation and willpower!

YANBU - well done!

I have lost 3st so far - another 3 to go. My WL has completely plateaued though which is a bit annoying.

It is a great achievement so you should be proud. Are you feeling good?

My grown up DD has lost 7 stone in a year and my DH has lost 6.5 stone in eight months. I eat the same food as them but have lost nothing, I think it is because I am on insulin.

Well done OP thanks thats great. Its taken me two and a half years to lose 4 a pound and a half a fortnight. The 4 stone was a regain after losing 10 stone so ive lost that 4 stone twice.

Dont get disheartened if the weight loss slows down after a while .....thats normal

And women are pressured to lose weight as it is without being told we arent doing it fast enough.

YABVU ...for not saying how you did it. Was it stomach crunches? Jogging? Mystical herbal teas? Liposuction?

Well done, want an achievement! You've done so well, it's incredibly difficult to lose weight.

No doubt you feel loads better, it really is hard to change your mind set when it comes to food but so worth it flowersflowers

Old trout - how did you lose 26lb in 6 weeks?

Leeds2 Sat 26-Mar-16 00:08:30

Well Done!

theoldtrout01876 Sat 26-Mar-16 00:14:39

maddening I followed this program. It actually worked for me. I had never dieted before and after it was over went right back to eating normally and have not gained any back since last summer. I did not find it tough at all but I did use the appetite suppressant from the same company.

Well done OP. star star star star star star star star

Im not sure about the looks of the hA2cg Diet OldTrout . It's very extreme. confused

theoldtrout01876 Sat 26-Mar-16 00:53:12

BitchyComment Honestly It wasnt that tough. Im 50 and had never dieted before,signed up to a VERY expensive doctor led program that did this diet. I wouldnt have believed it either. I only found this online when trying to buy the drops again to do the program myself as it was way too expensive to sign up again. I didnt know it was a "thing". All i know is it worked for me, I have not gained back and eat what I like. My friend and I are doing it, starting Monday, Im hoping it goes like the last time did.
