I started lipotrim for the second time on the 4th January, the first time I did lipotrim was during the London 2012 Olympics and I lost 38lb. Old habits kicked back in and I out on the majority of the weight.
I am 30 year old male, 5"7 and stated at 14st 8.5lb.
I needed something do something to take me out of my comfort zone so I signed up to take part in a white collar boxing event in March. This is my incentive to loose the excess weight and get rid of my pouch and man boobs!
I had my first boxing training session on Saturday 4th and also started lipotrim the same day. I think starting on the weekend helped me as I kept myself busy.
Monday was a very difficult day with the hunger pangs and drinking so much water I was going to the toilet every half hour.
I started back in the gym on Monday as I feel if I training when I'm on the diet it helps me loose the weight quicker but also keeps me get in a good headspace.
I went into ketosis on Tuesday (checked using ketostix) which meant the hunger pangs had gone away and I was starting to get the feel good factor back.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday where similar to Tuesday, I had my first complement on Saturday at boxing training that I had lost weight which was nice. I had my weight in and lost 9.7lb which I was delighted with.
Sunday was very difficult as I had plans to meet my mates and knew there would be food and drinks, I wasn't keen on telling them about what I was doing as I found people are two quick to judge and give there opinion. I drove and said I had just had food (I had a shake just before meeting them) I resisted the temptation but had some bubbles (fizzy water!) to celebrate with myself on my week one weight loss.
I woke up yesterday freezing and felt a cold coming on which I got the first time I did lipotrim. Last night I went to bed early and woke up this morning feeling worse, cold and cough. I am determined not to take any medication so I stay in ketosis.
I managed to do a gym session today but I felt I had no energy.
Roll on tomorrow and hopefully I will be feeling better.
Like the first time I did lipotrim I took a starting picture of my front, back and side to see the weight loss process.
Some tips I would recommend:
oDrink sparkling water as a change to still water
oTake weekly pictures of yourself
oMeasure your body (chest, belly,waist, thigh and arms)
oBreak your goals into small timeframes
oMost of all stay positive and remember how good the feel good factor is
I will be posting regular updates here....
