    Hi Everyone,

    How are you all?

    I just wondered if anyone could give me some advice please? I am going on a 2 day course on Wednesday and Thursday this week with people that I don't know. Lunch is provided in the form of a packed lunch-Sandwich, crisps, snack bar, fruit etc. I really don't think it is going to be possible to make a shake at lunch time (and I don't want to have to explain myself to a room full of strangers either!) and I can't possibly eat one of the terrible flapjacks unless I want to be sick!

    What shall I do? This is the first time since being on Lipotrim that I have been in this situation.

    I don't know what to suggest to you Lairey. For myself, I would just do the shakes. I would say I'm on a diet and that I've lost so much in so many weeks. I wouldn't put my diet and all my hard work in jeopardy. Is there nowhere private you can go to make your shakes?

    Maybe make a mousse, might be easier to mix discretely x

    Thanks guys.

    Tracy, I think you could be right. I don't normally have my first shake until about 1pm so didn't think of having one before work. I will then take the oportunity to load myself up with water during the day, which is normally the difficult bit for me. Thanks.

    I just don't think it would be practical to make a shake in the environment that I will be in. The course isn't being held at my normal place of work and I don't think there would be anywhere private that I could escape to. Im certainly not going to ruin things now. I'm re-feeding again in 2 weeks. My birthday is on good friday, so going to have a few days off. I got back on to it much easier than I expected after my weekend away, so decided to enjoy myself for my birthday.

    I can't wait for my weigh in on Friday. I was so pleased that I didnt gain during my weekend away but missed the feeling of seeing a loss on the scales! Greedy I know!

    Thanks for your help. This site is fab. If there is ever a question you need help with, someone (and normally lots of people!) come to the rescue!

    Thats what I thought. May aswell enjoy my birthday and easter. But of course will be sensible. I think my last re-feed did me good actually. Helps you to appreciate good healthy food and portion size etc. Getting back on it is much easier than I had heard it was.

    Anyone else re-feeding for easter?

    I didn't eat perfectly healthily but I ate much less than I would have before. No snacks, just breakfast, small lunch and dinner. Stuck to Tia Maria and diet coke (yummy!) and had 2 cocktails (extra yummy!!) I was very proud of myself and was over the moon with the result. Was so nervous getting on those scales, just incase. Even though I knew I had been good and not gone mad while away (which would have been very easy to do with all the lovely food about!)

    Lairey - I travel and am constantly in meetings etc and didnt want to broadcast the fact I was on LT.... so doing LT "under wraps" was difficult.... however I learned to love the flapjack for that reason.....however on other occasion I have slipped out a lunch time to have my shake in my car....sad I know but it worked for me. No-one was the wiser and asked why I wasnt having lunch - I just replied I had a massive breakfast....or was planning a massive dinner that night.
