Hey There - Checking in to say Hi
Just thought I'd nip in to say A big hello to you all and give you a brief update on my progress.
I lost a further 1lb post re-feed (2nd & successful attempt) and I've now maintained my weight loss for 4 weeks so I'm very happy with myself. I've another 3lb to lose to get to target but not stressed if I don't get there in a hurry as long as I continue to maintain.
I'm now eating a very healthy diet ensuring I eat small meals with plenty of healthy snacks throughout the day but I'm struggling to get my total daily calories above 900 most days but I'm getting there. I've also started exercising in the last 2 weeks so been swimming 4 times now and I'm managing 60 lengths which only took me 455mins last night so my fitness is improving really fast without all the fat on my body. I'm also still dancing salsa every Thursday night so get a cracking workout from that and I plan to introduce cycling, walking & running back into my life but taking it slowly as my body needs time to adjust after 4months of TFR.
So I'm fitting loosely into size 10 everything now and I feel just amazing and soooo happy. The fact that I'm now exercising and toning up and building a little muscle again is awesome and I know my body will continue to change shape over the next 6 months or so as I do more & more exercising.
For those of you who remember my first attempt at re-feed, you will recall it was a disaster and I panicked and went back to TFR for a week and I emailed Lipotrim to ask for their advice? Well I never ever received a reply from them so I decided to do my own re-feed plan and it's working very well indeed. Those 4 months when I was on TFR, I put my time to good use and I read sooo much about healthy food and the effect of foods on blood sugar levels which can cause real hunger pangs & cravings so with my newly gained knowledge, I manage my blood sugar levels really well and thus avoid said cravings. I also plan, plan, plan which is the magic key to success so I aim to keep on doing what I'm doing, i creasing m y calorie intake to around 1300 a day to ensure my metabolism is fully functioning on all cylinders and I hope to keep the weight off for good. I have totally changed my life and my eating habits for the rest of my life and it feels soooo good.
So final word, there is life after Lipotrim and it's fantastic. Good luck to you all still on your TFR journeys, it's really tough going but please stick to it 100% as that, I believe is the only way to do this, and you will also be enjoying a new life very soon as a slim happy person.
