Yes, It is DAMN frustrating. Especially since in the first week after being diagnosed i lost 12 lbs, 10 the next, and then i've been level since then despite the healthy eating and really bumping up the exercise. frustrating to say the least.Thanks for the encouragement! I will be the first to admit I am a bit of a control freak and at the time was disappointed not to have done better. I got over it though I am taking ages to drop the weight though, since January I have worked hard through diet and exercise and have lost a stone but it has come off very slowly and has now been stalled since May. I low-carb, have reduced portion size, kind of figure that maybe I should chill now. I am JUST under 10 stone and 5'2". Perhaps that is ok?? Lol.
