    Angela's Diary 2014

    Hi everybody,

    I restarted on Lipotrim on Monday 14th July 2014, so I am now on my 3rd day and still holding 100% so far.

    My goodness, it has been hard though! This is my second time around with Lipotrim. I managed to be on it for 24 weeks in 2012 and lost an amazing 7 stones in that time. Unfortunately though in 2012, we also moved house just as my first journey was coming to an end and needless to say with all the turmoil of moving, I didn't refeed properly and there was so much to do to even live in the new property (we are converting an old pub into our home) that old ways returned just because they were easy at the time, and before I knew it, 3 stone had returned by Spring 2013.

    I did try to restart again last year, but I think you have to be so mentally prepared for this or it won't work, and my head just wasn't in the right place and I have just got naughtier and naughtier with my food. I am now scarily over a stone and a half above where I started Lipotrim last time and I'm really struggling with mobility at the moment. Don't get me wrong, I can still move about just fine, but it is a big effort, and if we walk anywhere I have to keep stopping to rest.

    We have an 8 month old Labradoodle puppy who is the life and soul of the party, she makes us giggle each and every day. We have this strange game of tig that we play with her where she likes to run the length of the garden and I stand in the middle. The game is for me to try and tig her as she runs past and she tries to dodge me. It is so funny and she absolutely loves it and it's good exercise for us both as I leap around after her. Trouble is, a few weeks ago I forgot I was so heavy and tore my calf muscle springing after her. So she is another reason I need to lose this weight, so we can continue playing and of course, so I can walk and exercise her properly.

    I have decided enough is enough, I am tired of wearing the same two pairs of trousers which are the only ones that fit me, and I joined up again on Monday. I had a moderate to mild headache yesterday, but that's gone today. I just feel a little weak today, so I expect I am just about to go into ketosis soon.

    I'm shocked by how quiet the forums are this time around, but I'm guessing the recent price hike on Lipotrim has killed it a little

    Nevertheless, I think I am in the right frame of mind to do this now. I have a holiday at the end of October, so I am Lipotrimming right up to that, and maybe beyond, but I will have to see what I feel like when I get there. I have 100 days to go to the holiday, so I'm challenging myself to see how much I can lose in 100 days.

    Looking forward to chatting to you all, and maybe sharing advice and experiences of my previous time too.

    Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step.

    So, Day 7 and I've still been 100%. I'm feeling so much more confident that I will be able to get through the next 2-3 months on Lipo as my head is getting into the right place now. You forget just how hard that first week is!
    My scales weigh me 2.5lb lighter than the chemist and at the start of this my scales weighed me in at 19st 4.5lb (chemist was 19st 7lb - boo!), and this morning my scales were at 18st 6.75lb! That's incredible! I know I might be pushing it, but as I am so close, I kind of want to get a stone done in a week now as it's my official weigh in tomorrow morning (as I'm typing this I kind of feel like I'm asking too much, haha).
    Still I am more that chuffed with the results so far and can see and feel a definite difference. I love the results of the first week of Lipo!!
    I am currently wearing size 24 trousers, but I think they might be "roomy" 24's as a couple of months ago I bought another couple of pairs of 24's off eBay but they were too tight! I couldn't even do them up! Devastated! Yesterday I tried them on again and I can get them on and do them up, but they still look too tight just right now, but it has only been a week.
    Realistically, I would be happy with being in size 20's for my holidays at the end of October. I have lots of clothes in a size 20 so shouldn't need to do much clothes shopping for that either. My wardrobe is something that you have to see to believe. I am lucky enough to have a dressing room and in there I have two huge clothes racks with a top rail and a middle rail. All my clothes are sorted in 12-14 (from my last Lipo journey), 16-18, then 20-22's, then on the last rail, the few clothes that actually fit me going up to size 24's. I'm hoping to move some clothes down from the 20-22 onto my 'what fits me now' rail before long - fingers crossed.
    Going to have a look now at how you guys are all doing and then I might jump on the treadmill for half an hour (first time in months!) and see how I go on, see if I can knock a 2lb loss in a day out (definitely asking too much, haha)!

    Well I did it! Just been on the treadmill and done 2km in 24 mins 42 seconds!

    OH bought me this treadmill for my birthday (23rd May) as back then, I thought I could just exercise it off and just 'cut down a little'. I used to run when I was at school and held the record for a few years for doing the 1500m in 5 mins 33 seconds. In my head some 10+ stone heavier and oooh, ahem, 24 years later , my mind thought I could still do that so when I jumped on the treadmill for a proper go, I was shocked to find I couldn't even jog! Not even a little! I hobbled the 2km in absolute agony as I got raging shin splints and it took me over 29 minutes! I was so disappointed with myself
    Needless to say I haven't been near it since, I kept putting it off not fancying getting shin splints like that again.
    I'm chuffed to bits with today's treadmilling. I could jog, even if it was just a little bit - yay! Amazing what a difference a week on Lipo makes!
    This could get addictive!

    Thank you Hez
    I really hope this is our last time, I am sure we will be flying down on the scales!

    Well Day 8 and first official weigh in.

    And I got.............14LBS!!!!!!!!! Wooohoooo!!!!!!!!
    I did a big whoop whoop in the pharmacy this morning and still can't quite believe it myself! I am sooooo chuffed to bits - this is THE best diet ever!

    Was so pleased to replenish my chocolate shake stocks too. I used my last one up on Saturday dinnertime and I am getting quite addicted to my mocha choca shakes which sound exotic, but it's just chocolate shake blended with a reasonably heaped teaspoon of coffee, few sweeteners and 12 ice blocks from my freezer. I put the ice in a pint glass first then fill it up with water, whizz the whole lot in the blender and hey presto - my way of surviving Lipo is served! I even tried the coffee thing with the strawberry shake yesterday out of desperation, but it's a bit weird.
    I also got 1 chicken soup sachet at my first consultation and I've been putting it off and off, but I had no choice yesterday dinner but to have it. Needless to say, I didn't enjoy it, and it gave me indigestion. Not for me, I don't think.

    Did my treadmilling too this evening, pushed a little bit harder and did my 2km in 23 mins 42 seconds - a whole minute off yesterday. Boy was it hard work!

    Week 1 done and changes I've noticed are:

    a) Water retention in my legs has virtually all but disappeared, my shins used to feel spongy, it was horrible, but now I can start to feel the shin bone - yay!
    b) I can walk up our stairs without being out of puff by the time I'm at the top - they aren't even massively steep either.
    c) I can jog again!!!! Even if it's just a little bit! And I don't seem to get shin splints now either!
    d) Body has started to shrink already. I'm not down a clothes size yet, but my 22 tops and 24 bottoms are feeling looser. I bought a couple of M & S t-shirts in May in a 22, but they clung to my middle too much for my liking. Today I have been wearing one of them and felt fine in it
    e) My interest in cooking has returned with gusto, which involves me poring over recipes and dishes on ********* - but it is only healthy ones I am drawn to. It's really weird as I got this last time and went into a cooking frenzy and my family had the best summer of food yet in 2012. I mentioned this to my pharmacy lady and she said this is a common thing amongst anorexics () that they love cooking for other people, but won't eat any of it themselves. Mind you, I hardly think this will happen to me - given half a chance I most definitely would be eating it!!!

    Well I've waffled on for long enough - here's to another successful week fellow Lipotrimmers!

    Well done you!!! 14lbs gone like that (i clicked my fingers there lol) omg what a great 1st week you had. I can just picture you whooping lol you deserve it. Thats the beauty of this diet, you do it right you get the reward. Whether its 1lb, 10lbs, or 100lbs, your heading in the right direction.
    And all the little extras, the changes you can see. I can tie my shoes no bother now lol my nails, love my nails (never had nails before ) my clothes are loose, i must have been moulded into them before
    I too feel like im turning into nigella lawson. Thinking up all these healthy meals i am going to prepare, cook and consume. I think it will be a life change for everyone in this house. Meals will be planned, and healthier. No convenient food is this house... Kids will probably think Moms lost weight, and she thinks we all need to lose weight lol
    i went for my walk today and i am shaving seconds of it each day. I feel like doing the walk for my 7 days, then i want to do something else for 7 days! Am thinking cycling, maybe!!! Am not ready for swimming just yet , have a bit to go before i would subject myself to that. Any ideas?
    Whats it like to be in the 18st club? I so wanna get in there lol soon i will be there and you will be in the 17st club. I don't mind, I'm hot on your heels haha
    have a great day today. x

    Wow well done Hez, that's a brilliant loss for a few weeks in!

    This is Day 10 for me, and my scales are showing another 2lb loss this morning since the offical weigh in on Monday, which I am really happy with. Had a really crap day yesterday though. I still stuck to Lipo 100%, but it just seemed to be one of those days where everything was a struggle. It took me nearly 3 hours to get one of our printers going again and then after that I had to redo all the work I had done on Monday night. Our 'puppy' (she is 8 month old now, but HUGE) had a bit of an out of character toileting accident inside, on a new carpet the same age as her (won't go into details on this one for obvious reasons), I had suppliers ringing trying to sell me stuff I didn't need, my two boys (11 and 14) were such lazybums in the morning and didn't even surface till past 11am! Oooh, it was a nightmare!!!
    To make it worse, OH made the most delicious smelling cottage pie for tea with roasted Anya potatoes and veg. If one good thing came out of yesterday, at least I didn't break, 'cos it was soooo tempting last night!

    Also did my treadmilling again last night, and tried really hard and did my 2km in 22 mins 44 seconds. My hips are starting to hurt a little though, I know it is from not being used to trying to run, but I am in two minds as to whether to have a rest day, or stop being a wuss and get on with it, lol!

    Hez, I'm not brave enough yet to dust off my lovely purple bike and subject the public to the sight of me on a bike, haha!! It's a shame too, as we live virtually by the side of a canal (just a road in between us) and despite living in a hilly Yorkshire valley, the canalside offers a nice flat and traffic free environment to cycle on for miles and miles, and we are near some really nice villages too. I might consider this one once I don't think I might look like a big round plum on two wheels!
    I'm also right with you on not daring to go swimming yet. I know you see all sorts of shapes and sizes at the pool, but I am quite a self-conscious sort and would die inside if I saw somebody I knew, especially if they knew me when I was slim. It's bad enough when you meet them fully clothed, if you haven't seen somebody for 'X' amount of years, they see you and you can see in their eyes that they are thinking "where on earth did she all come from!?".

    Last time I Lipotrimmed, I did go horse riding! I was mad, mad, mad on horses as a kid and still definitely have a place in my heart for them now. I had a few lessons as a kid, but did most of my riding on my friend's pony Ziggy (my family could never have afforded on in a million years!). I remember my inside thighs were killing for days after riding in 2012, although I did enjoy it immensely! Still I need to get back down to at least 13 stone before I would do this. I was about that when I went last time, and they still gave me a massive ex-police horse to ride, haha!

    I also got quite into Zumba at one point - it's good fun and definitely get you hot and breathless!

    I'm loving being 18st something at the moment. I was 18st 3.75lb this morning, so hopefully by next week, we will both be dropping that front number!

    Your doing great! I never thought of horse riding.... I dont think i could subject an animal to that just yet. But for future reference i might give that a go. I jogged for part of my walk today. Id say if anyone recorded me you would never see my jog again. I would be one that loves attention, let alone like a crazy heifer running along the road hehe.
    your gonna be looking at a number 17 soon, i cant even think about that yet!!!! 18, 18, 18 thats all thats in my head lol
    i think i need to invest in a pair of good running shoes as the sole on my left foot is sore.
    we too live in a quiet area, all retired people, no kids, only grandkids, hence neighbours watching your every move lol
    hope your having a good day x

    Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step.
