Hiya Orla,
Welcome to the forum. As to the workings of it, I have been using this site since I started LT 6 weeks ago and just fumble around day after day. Really chuffed with myself when I find something new. You will soon feel right at home here :p
aww, thank you all so much for your replies, its good to know i have somewhere to go when it gets hard.wow, im really inspired by all ur gr8 weightlosses. ive been on it now for 5days and yesterday was my hardest day by far! really felt like giving up,but speaking to my mum on the phone helped and i'm still going,lol. she lost two stone/28lbs herself and i respect her immensely as she had prepared meals for my dad and such, i really dont know how she managed it! i knew the first week or so would be especially hard so i've basically locked myself away at home, away from all temptation,lol. i cudnt do it otherwise! so, is this forum an international one, like, where do u guys hail from,lol? how are you's coping? what was your experiences like after the first week or so. im 25yrs old by the way.
ps, im loving all the 'ticker' things,lol. i just made one for myself so i shall add it when i figure out how,xx

To add your ticker go to the User CP in the blue band of links at the top of the page. Then click on 'edit signature' and paste the code in there. Don't forget to save it though!

And I'm from sunny Plymouth :)

I'm very well thank you. The longer you are on Lipotrim the easier it becomes so by now for me it's pretty much a doddle. Still got a long way to go but I'm almost half way to target now so that's a boost!

You'll do fine, you just need to keep focused on what it is that you want to achieve. When feeling hungry or weak-willed jump on here and tell someone - we'll talk you out of it. Early nights, hot baths and hot drinks are all essential in week one also. Anything that makes you feel better (except food).

Welcome Orla, and good luck on LT.

I'm a teacher too and live in sunny (yeah right!) Hampshire!

I've been on LT for 18 weeks now and find it very easy to stick to, even with an OH and 3 children to cook for. The first week is the hardest but this site has been the lifeline so many of us have benefitted from to get us through the tough times.

This site is also so good for helping you celebrate your losses every week - I know I am keener to get on here and post my losses before telling my family (mainly coz they are so busy they aren't as interested - or do I mean obsessed - as me!)

Good luck hun, we look forward to getting to know you better.

Hi there, Orlagael, and a big :welcome:to you.
If you go to the "Sticky" notes at the start of the forum, there's a few tutorials there for newbies.
As you can see, I'm on week 7 now. San and I are friends and work together, so for us it's a bit easier, but this forum is a Godsend. Good luck for your 1st WI. Let us all know how you do. xx
Hi Orla and welcome to Minimins. There are loads of different people, following lots of different diets/regimes, but always someone who will be able to help. If you look at the top, on the big blue band, there is a link to "tutorials" this will help you find your way around the site and tell you what to expect from it. There is also an "inspirational slideshow" which shows before/during/after photos of lots of our members. Remember to keep glugging the water, and keep posting on here x x x
