Hi melogic, not sure if I would call myself a support leader as I am not on as much as I once was but I like to say a hello to all the new forum members so they feel welcome.
You got it right with Kate though...she is awesome!
I started on lite n easy and did that for around 5 months losing around 15kgs, then using the portion control and healthy eating style learnt from that plan I made up my own and used it alongside calorie counting losing another 12kgs. Oh and plenty of exercise....I just love it now, who would have thought! Have maintained now for 8 months by eating healthy, watching my portions, exercising and keeping an eye on the treats.
