    Hi all, i have been reading forum here for the past week and getting ideas of what i may be like.

    i am meeting pharmasist tomorrow, dont know if they will let me do it though??

    i am 10st 10 and 5ft1, so classed as overweight - not obese....does this make a difference?

    my hubby did it before xmas and lost 10lbs in a week, he found it ok until the last day, he could not make it to weigh in as car broke down but he just gave up when he was me cooking dinner :(

    for the girls doing it, i am worried about feeling faint and dizzy as i like eating little and often - do you feel dizzy??

    what days are the worst in the first week?
    which flavours are the best?

    thanks in advance

    p.s: cant stand tea or coffee so cant even use them to help with milkshakes

    Hiya, and welcome !

    Your BMI is supposed to be over 25 - but I think some pharmacies are stricter than others.

    I feel faint/dizzy all the time, along with feeling freeeeezing all the time too. i was sat in my conservatory when the sun was out last weekend, and it was 30degrees - very comfortable, my husband was boiling!!

    Re the flavour shakes: I have vanilla and choc, but find I can add coffee to both - so in effect i have 4 flavours.

    Drink all your water, and try the different amounts of water with your shakes. I have a minimum of 400ml with each shake, sometimes I have 700 (if I'm short on water intake for the day!)

    Oh, and make sure you take the fibreclear/senna you will almost definately need it.:p

    Day 3 and week 3 prove to be the most difficult for most people, me included. I had a lot of early nights in week 3!!

    Good luck and keep on here when you need support / motivation.

    thanks for replying - i remember my hubby having lots of early nights as he eats well all day but come 7pm he just eats like it was going out of fashion.

    my brother and dad have both lost 4 stone betwen them on LT

    think my BMI is 28 - so closer to obese

    will see what happens tomorrow

    you feel dizzy all the time??? how can you cope with that

    lots of luck on your lipotrim journey. You will not regret doing it.
    Females have three shakes a day. Males have either two male sachets of four of the female sachets.
    Your taste in the flavours will vary from week to week as your taste buds change. Try them all the first week. The phamacists are generally o.k. with exchanging flavours if you got one you really hate.
    Drink loads of water as this will help keep you hydrated and prevent you feeling too hungry. 3-4 litres a day is best.
    Take things a little easier in the first week as your body adjusts. Get a few early nights etc as this will help.
    In no time, you will be brimming with energy and feeling the weight drop off.
