Yes I 2nd betty I've lost nearly 3 stone with Paul Mckenna's Way of Eating it changes HOW we eat rather than WHAT although it helps you to eat well too See you both on our thread BTW ? We're lovely and helpful.
My Fitness Pal has helped me. I have lost 18lbs since November (some was post-pregnancy weight, DS2 is 8 months old). Very friendly bunch of MNers. There is a thread, but I haven't been on for a while!
There is a virtual gastric band app on iTunes if you have an iPhone/pad/pod I lost nearly 4 stone last year using it. Had a very tough few months and have put quite a bit back on, but will start listening again. They also have a Facebook support page too.
I've just remembered Paul McKenna is under my bed. I bet you didn't know that Must drag him out and see if he can make me thin.
Last time I tried it I just fell asleep. I thought it should have been called I Can Make You Nod Off. It was some years ago that I got it though and dc were all much smaller and I was permanently knackered so any opportunity to lie down had that effect.
Try the Slim & Save meal replacement thing for a week? I just ordered my trial pack thingy. People on here have lots lots quite quickly. Like a stone a month... you can order week by week. Am hoping for miracle too, LifeofPo.
