I was all set to start lipotrim on Tuesday as I had a social event I needed to go to tonight and didn't want to feel under pressure. Now, however, I have to go overseas for a funeral on Monday and will be gone through Thursday. I don't want to not do this now that I have psyched myself up so am going to start tomorrow. Am I mad? I need something to kick start some weight loss as I have had 4 kids in 5 years and my youngest is now 1 1/2. I am finished with pregnancies so just want to get back to how I used to be before I started having babies and got careless. I have approx. 53 lbs to lose. Need some motivation. Anybody close to these numbers when they started and how much did you lose during the first week?

Mary your start weight is exactly the same as mine! I am 2 days onto LT and looking forward to day 3! I haven't been weighed yet so can't enlighten you on my weightloss, but if you have it in ur head to start tomorrow, u should strike while the iron is hot! I read so many diaries on here in prep for starting, and I just thought the sooner u start the sooner u finish :) xx good luck and keep posting!! Xx

Hiya Mary and welcome. Well done for your preparation and determination. The best laid plans of mice and men, eh?!
I don't think you would be crazy to start on Tuesday but it would be harder for you. As a compromise, maybe you could eat some low carb meals when you're away which would help you get in ketosis more quickly if you decided to start LT on Thurs or Fri? Good luck, hun, whatever you decide. x

if you've worked yourself up to start then go for it! there will always be things that come up to make it hard and if you can get through them in the first week then you can get through anything!!!

go for it! there's always something in the way, so if you wait around the enthusiasm might wear off! ive been to a gala ball, a funeral, an overnite stay in a hotel, and am going campin for 3 days the end of this month, when you get a bit further into lipotrim you learn to just ignore food.... so ignore anything thats coming up and just take it each day and before you know it day 1 becomes day 34 just like i am today!!! good luck and get goin!

Thanks everybody for the comments! Yes Jody, I started, but only today! I stuck with my original plan!!! I had the strawberry shake for breakfast and it was fine. The chocolate one I'm trying to drink now - do not like it at all! But will exchange it for flavours I prefer tomorrow. Hopefully, I will like the vanilla one at dinner or I'll be a strawberry head by the end of the week! Have you had your first weigh in Jody? How are you coping with the shock of it all!! It's such a great motivation to read everybody's progress on here! And I can't thank you enough for the encouragement. Leluna, I can't believe you lost 15 pounds in one week! That's insane! And I think, for me, you were right, there's always going to be something stopping me, some major event. So, I'm excited but not looking forward to the initial few days! It's my time and I am really focusing on a slimmer me and how much happier that will make me with my confidence. Here's to surviving week 1!!!:eek:

Hey x lis x just wondered have you stayed on lipotrim the whole time - you dropped what I want to in just over 3 months which is awesome. It must feel great.
