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?
