    and it begins...anxiety over excess skin...

    Hi all...
    Im on Day 1...following a few failed attempts. Im at a point that I now know why Im eating the way I am..(nope...not a comfort eater)..and the only way to change it is something like lipotrim where all control is taken away. So Im really looking forward to getting into ketosis and getting on with it. I know these next few days are beyond crucial..hence Im at home to complete them...unable to get through it in work...Im quite excited at the weight loss...Every pound adds up...but yeah...don't we all love the quick and fast loss..haha..
    Im 5'2, 19 stone size 20-22. Iv never been skinny...but I did have a marlynn monroe figure of 12/14 bust, 10 waist and 12/14 hips. iv was 10-10.5 stone and thought I was so overweight. My aim is to get that figure back. While Iv put on the weight since then (I was 18..am now dare i say it..33) I really put on the weight in the last 7 years. I began personal training...and loved it...got a good kick out of it..but then tore my cartilage in my knee and needed surgery. so im just about back walking now..not much...but Im starting this and by the time Im ready to get back into the personal training, hopefully I will have lost a good bit of weight...therefore not as much pressure on my knees. I do have a concern though..dont worry it wont stop me doing this...Im just trying to be proactive...and try amd prevent it...but how can i try and prevent excess skin?? my arms and lower abdomen ( possibly my ass and legs then too)eould be most at risk...tips especially from those who have gone through extreme weighloss would be greatly appreciated..

    ok..so Im on Day 3....I found that Iv needed to go to bed early because I just feel like crap in the evenings. At least Im busy during the day and you look forward to the next shake...but evenings is chill time...and so..harder..today I feel that if there was food in my house Id be in trouble..(thankfully empty presses and fridge is gone cos its broken)...Iv no specific craving so im believing its bodys last ditch attempt in screaming out for anything..and seeing a loss on the scales this morning was great...it all helps...

    Hi sazzy, welcome to the Lipotrim club Congrats on making it this far, the first week is always the hardest! Regarding the loose skin, so far I've lost almost 8 stone and haven't really got any loose skin thankfully. I have a few wrinkles of my stomach but that's about it. I was really worried about loose skin too especially on my stomach because it was so big but thinking about it now, i would rather have some loose skin than to be almost 23 stone again and size 22-24 (I'm currently 14-16 ).

    I'm sure your aware there are a whole load of factors that affect skin and its tightness like age, sun exposure, genetics, bad diet, stress, smoking, achocol, dehydration etc. so to help avoid or minimize loose skin is to lessen these factors. It's also important to remember that your skin is a living organ which changes and adapts throughtout your life and it can take up to 2 years for your skin to readjust after weight loss depending on how much weight you have lost so dont worry . What I have been doing to help minimize my loose skin is

    1. I have been making sure my body isnt dehyrated. I almost always have 4 litres of water a day on TFR but if I still feel really thirsty I might drink 5 (I know Lipotrim only says 4 litres but Im not ignoring my body )

    2. Ive been taking multivitamins which have vitamin c and zinc because they are needed for collagen and elastin production.

    3. Ive been trying to use mild/organic shower products to try and stop my skin from dehyrating. Soaps that contain sodium laurly sulfates (SLS) dry out your skin and if your skin is not hydrated = loose skin. I also have been moisturizing twice a day with a good moisturizer and using bio oil and other oils with contains vitamins to rub on my most worried areas before bed. Exfoliate and dry brush too as it gets rid of dead cells and improves circulation.

    D
    ont forget to keep us updated on your weight loss, best of luck!

    Hi hun... I did this diet in 2011.. not logged into the site for a fair while now. My advice would be to make sure you keep your body very well hydrated and drink enough. If you dont then yes it could effect what your worrying about. I have a little bit of lose skin, and I didnt drink near enough. Just started back on again yesterday at 13 stone 7lbs... want to get to 9 stone 7lbs.. and i`m drinking around 3 litres. Hope this helps..
    Start Weight 13 stone 7lbs
