    I must've posted on almost every board since I joined Minimins or at least it seems like it lol. I am starting Lipotrim in Jan and am preparing myself from tomorrow firstly using SF then the remaining CD shakes and soups over the hols and I might be able to get an appt 2nd Jan if I ring tomorrow morning.

    a VLCD is the only thing has ever worked for me, I feel out of control around food, more so now than ever. :sigh:

    Thanks for the support DQ. I am finding that the sugar in the SF is making my blood sugar too high, not good when you're diabetic lol. I'd been think of surgery but am realising now that's not the answer for me either. Have too far to travel. Plus I'm scared of complications etc and would prefer to do it myself anyhow. I will get there some day. :rolleyes:

    I am starting with my leftover cd shakes on 30th. That'll keep me going til my appt on the 4th. The chemist I'm going to has dedicated a separate building to LT and called it weight management centre. It's more private cos they only see one person at a time.

    It's run by a girl called Monica who is a psychologist. She says I can ring her when I need to. (think if I ring up sobbing at 2am cos I'm hungry wouldn't go down too well :D).

    I bought a Kenwood smoothie maker last week. Made a couple fruit smoothies, delicious. It blends shakes perfectly, goodbye electric whisk lol.

    Hi

    Just found this site and glad I did. I have started on LT (day 2 today so long way to go!) and I really want to do it this time.

    I have done LL in the past, lost 5 stone, put 6 back on (long story but just not the right time for me). This time I am just taking one day at a time as cannot think of 5 months stretching ahead of me.

    This really is last resort for me, health suffering etc and I have no alternative. My problem is I feel embarrassed to tell people I am doing it because of failing last time, not sure if I can handle the negative comments this time around, but I know I can do it if I really want to because I have done it before (if that makes sense!).

    Good luck to everyone else still in the early stages...

    Hi and welcome.....Freshstart.....I know what you mean....while I hadnt tried LT before I had been on every diet under the sun and lost weight and gained more....when on LT I just told my hubby and sis...nobody else for the same reason I couldnt bear to hear the "here she goes again".....I just avoided social events for a few months or arrived late after food...drank water cos I was driving etc..and nobody guessed...even at work I just had a flapjack at my desk and everybody assumed I was too busy to take a break....Lost 65llbs in 4 months - YOU CAN DO IT!!! Best of luck

    Thank you Bea!

    Thats exactly what I want to do for the first month at least. Work will be ok as I only work in the mornings and I just want to hide away in Jan and Feb and avoid any socialising which again I think will be easy! Family is different so I have to think about that but once I am in ketosis and feel more positive, I will deal with it then.

    Just taken my first headache tablets, I have forgotten what the first week is like! I was very good on LL and never cheated once as I was scared to feel like this again.

    I know where I went wrong before and once the weight is off, I will avoid those same traps again. I love the fact that I am doing this through the pharmacist as it somehow makes it feel like more of a health remedy than another fad.

    PS. Congrats on the pregnancy!!

    Yep good luck Freshstart. I didn't tell everyone at first, but as soon as people began to notice the weight loss I let them know. I love this diet.

    You can do it. Good luck hun.

    It's officially day one. I've had a chicken and mushroom soup and have got started on the water.:tear_drop: I am going to take it an hour at a time, if need be. It's evenings are the worst, am alright during the day, especially if I am out and about.

    All the rubbish I am eating is taking it's toll physically. I felt awful yesterday it was like a hang-over without the booze! :eek:

    Hello fresh start, good luck hon. What day are you on?

    Hi Lynne

    I am on day 4 today, and have felt very nauseous since Friday evening but it may be a bug as a few of my work colleagues have been ill over Christmas. Normally I would use that as an excuse to eat (ie convince myself I should eat some toast or something) but this time I am not going to. I know day 4 is nothing in the great scheme of this diet but I know if I start with a piece of toast now, by this evening I will be eating a full roast dinner and will struggle to start again for a few days.

    I bought the packs 2 weeks ago, promising myself that no matter what I would start on the 27th and I am so proud that I did, I nearly postponed another week but for some reason I needed to keep that promise to myself, otherwise it would have added to my list of failing to start.

    I am 44, with 2 daughters, my husband has left me after 24 years of marriage and after losing 5 stone on LL just 2 years ago, I have spent every day since then anaesithising myself with food. But while I am so overweight (16.5 stone) I hide behind this, I have just become the fat friend/sister/colleague again who has no self-esteem.

    I have a tough year ahead but it will be a hell of a lot worse if I do at 16.5 stone! (probably ending up at 18 by the end of the year).

    Sorry for offloading all that, but it does feel good!

    I have made myself stay in bed this morning and feel really grotty but will get started on the water now and I do exactly what you say Lynne and take it one hour at a time. I have stopped and started a few times with left over LL packs in the past year but the thought of 5 months without food made me panic and eat. This time I am not thinking that far ahead.

    Good luck to you all!

    Hi Freshstart!!! You got for it...loosing the weight will give you your self confidence back.....being fat becomes a comfort blanket and its hard to kick off....you did it before and you can do it again.....I lost 65llbs in just over 4 months...(was about your weight when I started)....so just picture yourself in 4 months how amazing you will look...you are a young woman with lots to live for.....think how fab it will be when you are wearing new slinky outfit for the summer!!!! Hugs!!!!
