    :heartpump:DAY 1 - 26 DEC 08:heartpump:

    Decided to start today rather than Saturday. My logic is that if I can get through today I can do it. Just opened the cupboards downstairs and they are packed with chocolate and yummy food. Not brought by myself but given as gifts.. aggghhh. We're invited to a buffet later so I'm going to pretend I feel a bit sick to avoid questions of why I'm not eating;)

    Woke up this morning full of motivation and raring to go. Not normally hungry in the morning but because I'm aware of LT I am suddenly starving. I was very excited opening my first packet (how sad is that!) I've started with vanilla. Didn't smell too bad in the packet. I've had half in a cup of coffee. First taste and I nearly threw up, I think you have to forget about it tasting like you expect... ie vanilla coffee:rolleyes: And don't sniff every sip, just swallow:8855:
    Happy Lipotrimming x

    1pm Update - The bloody boiler has gone and broken. Thank goodness I haven't started the chills yet. Kept myself busy this morning with cleaning. Hubby and babyboy are sitting down to their lunch, my mouth is watering but am remaining strong willed. Just made up the soup, not too bad. I've added more water, a pinch of chilli flakes and some pepper. Again it's a case of drinking rather than tasting.

    7pm Update - Gahhhh at my mum's house and everyone is eating gorgeous buffet food. No one has noticed I've not eaten, even managed to sneak half a chocolate shake (they think it's hot choc). Today has been a real test for me as I normally pig out at my mum's. Starting to feel a bit tired and got a headache now. It doesn't help that the whole family are playing on rock band. Feeling pleased with myself but can see it's going to be hard work to stick it for any significant length of time. I've worked out that at 1 stone a month it should take me roughly 20 weeks. So only 19 weeks and 6 days to go! Anyway, half way into my cup of 'coffee' and it's not too bad. Plans for rest of the day: soup for lunch, vanilla coffee late afternoon and hot chocolate for tea/supper. Will update as the day goes on.

    Really good luck with lipotrim I willbe joining you tomorrow, as going out for a meal today.

    My sister loulou started a week a go and I told her shakes were ok. I had forgotten how bad they were to start with:9529:, I even had to hold my nose to drink them. :8855:I had to add cold black coffee, ice and 1 pint of water to be able to drink them (iced coffee latte). 2nd week I was down to vanilla only with coffee. I cant believe how soon I got used to them.

    Drink plenty of water it does help with your weight lose, I lost more on the weeks I drank more. I had to get up 2-3 times in the night and couldnt believe how long I could wee for:crazy:. This also settled down.

    On day 6 I decided to cook roast dinner for family. Big mistake i felt like killing them!:flamingmad: If only I had had my shake whilst preparing it I would of been fine.:)

    The next day you would not believe the difference I felt like an angel:
    :angel::angel:
    I felt happy not angry I felt I can do this and felt in control! I was able to make family meals without wanting to kill them. Remember not to lick your fingers! I always had a shake whilst I was preparing their meals and that made it so much easier as I wasnt hungry.

    hehehe!!! thats why im staying away from the shops for now! bought some jeans a couple of back and they were a 24. i havent even had a chance to wear them yet and im a size 20 now!!!!!!!! so wear everything in your wardrobe hehe coz it wont fit you in no time!!

    perfectorchid, your doing well!!! your right about the shakes, better to just swallow than sip it. at first they made me gag too but i have gotten to like them now. i found that the choc and vanilla taste way better with a sweetener. i have a great electric mixer which makes the shakes so nice and frothy and if you have them really really cold then they actually taste alot better.. (or perhaps thats just the cold killing my tastebuds!)

    :heartpump:DAY 2 - 27 DEC 08:heartpump:

    11.30am - Brrr it's bloody freezing. Heating is still not working and we can't get anyone to even look at it until monday. Not good with 2 babies in the house. Everyone is wrapped up trying to keep warm. It's now that I could do with some really warm comfort food. Didn't have a brilliant sleep last night, not sure if it was cold, hunger or both! Had a strawberry shake for breakfast made it ice cold and drank as quick as possible. I'm looking forward to my soup as it will be warm and I'm bloody starving. Just wondered how long it takes for ketosis to kick in? Is it a week or 3 days?:eek:

    4.00pm - Bloody starving! Had my soup and I really enjoyed it. Added some garlic salt, black pepper, dried chilli and a splash of tabasco. I know officially it's not allowed but it made it drinkable. Am struggling this afternoon, think it's the coldness and being bored (also all the yummy food in the cupboard). Will power is still strong, I made eggy bread for the family and they all had chocolate buttons after. I sat with my soup lol. Was so tempted to have just one bite but I know that one bite would lead to another. Thankfully day 2 is nearly over. I keep telling myself that it is one day closer to goal. Just sitting down for a very weak hot choc (shake). Have added a pinch of ground cinamon. It doesn't make a big difference to taste but it smells alot better, think sometimes that is half the battle. Side effects are starting to kick in. Feel grumpy, tired, hungry and a bit clumsy... but I also feel thinner!

    8.00pm - Woah am struggling tonight, nearly gave in earlier and said I couldn't do it. Hubby made me go off and have a bath which helped the feelings to pass. I am still soooooo hungry though. Early night tonight as I'm feeling a bit rubbish. Got pains in my side but not sure if it's totm or hunger pains! Oh must mention that I made my chocolate into a mousse, it was lovely so will def be having that again. 2 days down, only 19 weeks and 5 days to go - cue manic laughing.

    Happy lipotrimming x

    Hello Perfectorchid, loulouless, blue eyes, miss unknown and fatbridetobe! I'm restarting on monday. Perfectorchid, reading your post reminded me vividly of the way I really felt when I first started. Ooh, not wonderful but after the forst weigh-in it all changes and it feels fantastic. Ketosis is what helps and in fact the shakes do become nicer. I'm planning to go for choc. flavour most of the time so I can make hot drinks in this c-c-cold weather! Here's to slimmer lipotrimmers!!

    :heartpump:DAY 3 - 28 DEC 08:heartpump:

    12.30 pm - Last night was hard but I stuck with it and am so pleased I did. Woke up this morning feeling awful, headache, tired, hungry BUT it has passed:) Been to church this morning but didn't take communion as it's bread and wine:8855: Plans this afternoon are to go for a nice walk, hopefully by being out the house I wont be thinking about food. 'Food' so far today: Brekkie - Vanilla coffee, Lunch - Vanilla Coffee, half portion of soup and just about to have half portion of mousse. I've found it better to split my packs as it makes me feel like I am eating more. Not had any water yet today:eek: Hope everyone is having a nice sunday. Stay strong LT'ers x

    3.45pm - Hello Ketosis, brought some sticks and got a + reading. Can't say that I feel that sense of well being or lack of hunger yet. Bit concerned about being in ketosis as I've only heard negative things. Going to have to tell my mum tonight that I'm doing a 'diet' as she has offered to cook tea for the family. I'm just gonna tell her that it's kinda like slimfast. She'll do her nut if she knows I'm putting myself in ketosis.. my little brother is diabetic and ketones are a BIG no no.

    8.30pm - At my mum's house as ours is waaaaaaay to cold. Hopefully the heating will get fixed tomorrow. I had to sit tonight with my soup whilst everyone tucked into a big beef & gravy dinner. It makes me laugh that I have this new found will power yet couldn't say no to junk before. Tonight is testing my limits as normally I stuff myself when here. Got a vanilla shake for first thing in the morning. Night night all x Onwards and downwards - day 4 here I come.
