    Here's where i'll kind of introduce myself and my diary. I decided to do a diary as i thought it would be a good way to write down what i'm doing, whilst also sharing it with others.

    I'm 20 and living in Leeds, and i know it sounds silly but i feel like all the weight has just crept up on me.

    I've only been overweight for about the last 3 years, i think mainly due to comfort eating.

    Although my mum thinks it's because when i lived with my Dad me and my sister didn't eat that much, my dad never went shopping or made food so we didn't really eat much, anyway she thinks it might be because when me and my sister were finally able to eat (lots!) when we moved in with my mum, i ate a lot!! although my sister is not overweight.

    anyway....i'm a size 20, and about 17 stone 7lbs, starting lipotrim today. For the last two weeks i have been eating healthily and doing exercise and lost 3lbs each week, but want something a bit quicker.

    For the first week i decided to get 7 chocolate shakes,4 strawberry shakes, 5 soups and 5 flapjacks. I heard that the flapjacks were awful, i thought how can they be that bad and after about an hour of eating it, still only eaten about an 8th!!so now i can see, it's not so much the taste, but they're just hard to eat!

    in terms of my goal, i'm honestly not sure,ideally i would like to be a size 12 but i'm not sure with my frame whether i would look okay, i obviously want to lose a lot of weight to be healthy and to look nicer!!


    afterthe first week is over, so after my body gets used to everything, i'm going to start doing exercise. for the last few months i've been doing exercise and enjoyed it.

    a bit of cardio everyday, and then strength training every other day just to help tone up whilst i lose weight.

    i'll probably post another entry tonight, i enjoy reading everyone's diary hope some enjoy this!

    Today's been, well, mixed.

    I haven't been hungry at all, i thought that would be the main difficulty for me,thankfully not. I have however, felt very sick, and as weird as it sounds, even worse when i bend down?!
    I also feel very hot, particularly my face, although i guess i could be being paranoid, i mean it's only been a day!!

    Still not finished the flapjack, will have to work on that tonight....i still feel like i have bits of flapjack stuck in my throat, not good!!


    Going to bed soon, night all xx

    Hi Adele :) Great to read your diary, I'm on CD not the same, but both losing weight! :)

    Would it help with the flapjack if you cut it up into small pieces? Last time I did CD I used to do this with the bars, refrigerate them and cut them up.. then they were like little chocolates. :) I can't eat a bar whole it feels sickly.

    Really hope you find a way around the ones you have. :)

    Am sure you'll do well and will pop back in from time to time :)

    Keep up the great work. :)

    P.S. my youngest shares your name! ;)
