    Smile Just started

    Hi everyone,

    i am so glad that I found this site, it is truly inspirational! You are all so supportive and it's great to know that others are or have been experiencing the same journey.

    I have been very overweight for 25 years and have tried loads of diets but never did very well on any of them. Through a traumatic event in my 10 year relationship last week, I finally had a big kick up the butt and decided that I had had enough of being fat - of not being able to run, always sweating, having to really pull myself up off the sofa, being out of breath at the top of the stairs plus the threat of diabetes and all the other medical issues that obese people have.

    On Saturday I started on Lipotrim and so far it's going great. I have been hungry but not starving. I'm really surprised by this as I thought I would be constantly craving but it hasn't happened yet. My start weight was 18st 7lb. My first weigh in is Friday so fingers crossed. I would like to get to 11st. A long journey but well worth it.

    Well done. It's hard to make the decision to start. I'm on Day 17. Don't feel hungry really at all, but still crave particular food. Will Power is a great thing! This site is great to get info from. Good luck.

    Good for you Marjo! I think recognising your weight, being realistic, and making the decision to TRULY change is the tough part. Although this past week has been tough for me (today is day 8 - down 12 lbs), I'm personally so tired of failure and being FAT that I simply won't quit. I've experienced headaches, dizziness, extreme fatigue, nausea, shakiness, and generally feeling unwell - but apparently this is all attributed to my low blood sugar and shock to my chemistry. Plus, I was stupid enough to help build a pond over the weekend which nearly caused me to pass out. Exercise is sort of a priority for me, and having to 'take it easy' is difficult.

    I also have a long journey, but am pleased that my blood pressure is perfect and I have made this life-changing decision just in time! Good luck!

    Thanks!

    it's going to be a long journey but I'll get there one day, & it's great having all of you to travel there with. I'm surprised that I'm not craving for food, but am missing the action of eating, if that makes sense. I'm that used to sitting on sofa & stuffing whatever food is handy into my mouth that it feels strange not doing it.

    Hey

    I can't find your earlier post so I'm not too sure what you'd like tips on but I'm assuming its the diet as a whole.
    Just try to drink at least 3 litres of water a day and for motivation I keep coming here and reading stories and also looking at inspirational pictures. You wouldn't believe how much it helps! Anytime I feel like I'm going to give in to temptation I just look at the pictures and just think one nibble of this or that isn't worth it. Just imagine in 6 weeks you could lose 2 and a half stones. How much are you aiming to lose?

    I wish you the best on this journey. I'm sure you'll have outstanding results.

    Hi Fatoflat,

    did you you end up going?

    I was very apprehensive about starting as I've failed miserably with every other weight loss venture I've tried, but I've been doing it a week now (first weigh in later today) and am finding it pretty painless. I thought I would be starving but I'm not, I've felt a bit hungry but I can cope with it. I thought it would be so hard but I'm really surprised & I can tell I've lost quite a bit.

    You do need to be in the right mind though I tried this years ago & lasted two days. As T1506 says there's plenty of inspiration on this site & you'll get plenty of support - from me & I'm sure from T1506.

    Good luck!
