Hi All
Thought I should introduce myself...
Well, after a 2 stone loss on WW i'm at the point now where the weight's not coming off as quickly as i'd hoped and i've taken the leap onto the Lipotrim programme :D
First day today and i'm in proper Eye of the Tiger mode...had all of my shakes and my water and not feeling too bad at all (fingers crossed). Disaster occured earlier though when I tried to mix a vanilla shake with coffee and hot water - top popped off the shaker and re-decorated the kitchen with formula!!! All sorted now though.
I'm upping the weight loss effort as me and my hubby have recently been refused NHS fertility treatment (he has a 16 year old daughter from a previous marriage which automatically excludes us) and with the cost of Private treatment being so high, I want to give us the very best chance possible for it to work. I have around 70lbs to lose so really want to go for it.

Been reading all your stories and profiles - wow! Some really inspirational stuff. Hope to get to know you all soon!

Welcome to LT Zoe. You've made a great decision to start. You will do so well on this with your target to aim for. I'm sure you will get what you want from this and good luck with everything.

Ask any questions you need to cos there are some experienced LTers on here that are very helpful and inciteful. Good luck.

Thanks all! Off to bed now, just in case I start to stray in the direction of the fridge - not been too bad today, got the feeling that tomorrow'll be the killer day though!
Thanks again, sure i'll be pestering you all soon enough!

Hi Zoe and welcome.
FBTB is right, never use the shaker for hot shakes!!
Buy a stick blender from ASDA or Sainsys for about a fiver, and blend the hot ones in your shaker (MUCH safer!!)
Good luck. xxxx

Welcome and good luck Zoe. Sorry to hear about your disaster but you aren't the first to make the same mistake!!!! The only reason I haven't is coz I have all my shakes cold! That's coz I'm a coward!!!!

Well done :eek::eek::eek::eek: Zoe. Like you I have just started LT which is totally alien. I have normally gone with WW or SL but the idea of going back to that again does:eek: not appeal. I am sure that you will get loads of support here once u find your way around. I have found that so far myself and Iam a real technophobe:confused: Will look out for you in the coming weeks and support where I can.:553:

FBTB - Will most certainly not be making that mistake again!!:D Made a hot-choc last night and used the jug blender, made the top nice and frothy (sad, but it gave it the tiniest hint of luxury-lookingness).

Everyone else, thanks again for the encouragement. On day 3 now and although i'm craving food, i'm not actually hungry - just want the sensation of chewing I suppose. Had a sneaky peek at the scales this morning :eek: and am 6lbs down so far - proper weigh-in on Saturday. Energy levels are great but the during the night toilet visits aren't so great, still, at least it shows i'm doing well on my water intake :D

Speak soon, off to figure out the tickers.

Hello and good luck! This website is a godsend and LT is much easier - honest! - than WW once you get stuck into it:D

FBTB, I can't stop!!!!:(:(:(
Showing 8.5 this morning, it's the only thing that's got me out of bed this week!

My hubby got me some fancy-dan Salter scales for xmas, the ones that do your body fat / muscle / water % measurements - I was shocked how much the water % has shot up this week!

BTW, saw your pics on another thread yesterday - wow!:D

I have to admit I bought some scales too! A week is such a long time to wait lol. Also because I have to get two buses to the clinic my advisor has said that once she is happy i have settled in well I can see her fortnightly.

Great news already hun...keep going!! xx
