Hi all,
I'm currently on the contraceptive pill cileste. I'm 5.1 and I weigh around 56/57kg. I wear a size 8 in clothing (I know that's not big at all) but I feel big.
I'm only small but have a big bum and big boobs... I just wish my tummy was smaller, I feel so bloated when its coming up to my period.
Does anyone have any tips for losing weight, I'm trying to keep under 1200 cals a day but nothing seems to be working

You're eating nowhere near enough. Your body needs fuel to work properly. Most people say to eat 1200 at a minimum - with exercise that minimum will be even higher. (I have no scientific evidence for that number, but it always seems the lowest number quoted for the amount you should eat.)

Just eat a normal amount, but choose healthier options. Exercise at least 3 times a week - it can even help just by walking more.

You don't need to lose weight, you probably just need to tone up. Excercise.

http://walking.about.com/cs/calories/l/blcalcalc.htm Use this to tell you how many calories you should be having to maintain your weight. If you really want to lose a bit, then take 500 off that.

Also, drink plenty, it will stop you from retainint water and bloating

If you think the pill is causing this, consider changing contraception
