Hello all :sign0144:

Im currenly in my 2nd week of LT and I have just finnished working out my redundancy period :cry:

I have now gone from little exercise (worked in an office!) to pretty much none!

I'm worried that my lack of exercise will effect my LT results. Because I now have ALOT of time on my hands I've finally started to use the wii fit I got last year, but I find that I dont have the gusto that I thought I should to commit to it every day (how weak does that make me??)

My self confidence is extremely low (it has constantly gone down as my weight went up over the years!) None of my friends know that I am on LT because when I did LL last year EVERYONE said extremly negative things and eventually I listened and stopped. Something I totally regret. :sigh:

As I am now unemployed saving money is extremely important, so I decided to NOT join the gym at £45 p/month HOLY CRAP!!! And hopefully go walking!!!


Are there any sort of group walks/meets anywhere in london or is there anyone who is also looking for a walking buddy who would appreciate the company??

I live in central london, am single :sigh: have no kids and no major commitments other than looking for a new job!

I hope that this hasn't bored the pants off you all!!!

keep up all the good work with your diets!

Regards, Lei Xx

Hi Leinaya , welcome to the site , Im afraid im too far away to be your walking buddy (Ireland!!) but I wouldnt worry about too much exercise while on LT . As you are only taking 500 cal approx in your shakes if you over exercise and burn a lot of that off your body can go in to starvation mode and your weight loss could slow down. so I was told anyway. A stroll in the fresh air though wouldnt do any harm I think as it helps take the mind off food !!!!!!!!!... Talk to us whenever you need a Gee up with this diet. I am going on week six and I can attribute that to all the great support I have got here from all the gals and guys.

Hello Michillinwoman :)

Yes Ireland is juat a tad further than I'd manage to walk haha!

Thank you for your advice. I didnt get much advice from my chemist :/ so I have been pretty much going on what I could remember from when I was doing LL. I think I was recommended to do 10'000 steps p/day and to then increase by 100 steps each day if poss.....?? (still have my LL books somewhere...!)

I kinda feel a bit silly because I live in central london where u can pretty much walk to anywhere interesting! But I feel its motivation that I need - thank heavens for this forum!!! - to get over my shyness and get my (big!) butt into gear!

It is extremely reassuring to know that I am not alone in my LT quest!

Congrats on u getting halfway to your goal!!!

My chemist is the same, just happy to take the money off me and thats about it. So yes, coming on here is a godsend to get you through all the hard times.

Thats reassuring to know about the exercise, that u dont have to do a mega amount. It makes sense what u said u said about doing to much.

Welcome Leinaya, I want you to know that we will all give you our total support on this wonderful Lipotrim forum. Put the worries about the gym on hold until you have completed your LT programme and are onto re-feed or maintenance, and even then you may find you only have to tone-up. Walking is free and enough for now. I found that my energy levels soared and my house has never looked so clean, my OH has to beg me to sit down and chill now! My self-esteem has always been low with regard to my size, even though my OH tries his best to build it up every day....but now, I LOVE the way I look even if I have to lose a bit more, my confidence and self-esteem has sky-rocketed and so will yours. I promise if you give this your total 100% commitment, you will very shortly have a much more positive outlook on everything. Best of luck in your job-hunting.
