:wave_cry:Well here goes, I've lurked my fair share far around these forums for a few months, I have been inspired to start the Cambridge/Lipotrim diet. But I've run into a few problems, I am very aware that this forum is in the UK so I have been trying to calculate stones and calories in a new way, As I am from the US. I believe I am (227lbs) which equals = 16stones at 4Ft 10in:cry:, And my goal should be in the 9stone (Is that like 120lbs?)range. I was looking over the Cambridge website and I noticed the calories are calculated in example; 450k? Is this the same as the numbers used in the US nutritional chart, I was also curious if the Lipotrim is sold in any US pharmacies, Everytime I google it I get either someone doing a fraud review which they follow up with "This product is better, And approved by more funny people in hats and coats. So buy ours instead of lipotrim" I've never been "fit" or skinny a day in my life, And I've always wanted to know what it would be like to actually jog or run, Without feeling winded or tired. ) Maybe meet someone special..lol I have had alot of fears that kept me from dieting, Some being my fear of hair loss, I love my long hair but I noticed someone posting about what is really going on and what the chances are, Thanks a bunch! As for my other fears loose skin is one, But I think I may be on the upper hand, Because I am only 18, Anyone else in their teens trying to lose? I am excited and happy about the chance to change my ways. I had a treadmill and when it broke it was sent outside into oblivion, But I fixed it yesterday and I will start during some walking everyday, Work it up in moderation. Anyways, As excited and scared, I am more over happy to start my change. Ive done a blue million crash diets, Always doing what they do best, Crash. I've never been open about it either, I never had any support and the little I did usually became more destructive to my diets, They were a er, Super [STRIKE]Crash[/STRIKE]Diet crasher. Anyways thanks in advance for any words of wisdom or advice, And I want to congradulate all of you for the leaps you have already taken and continue to take, You're my inspiration.
