hi everyone

#1
don't know how many of you are still around from when i did total food replacement but just wanted to come and say hello to everyone old and new.

hope you are all doing well with your lipotrim journeys and achieving your goals, i miss coming on here and having a laugh but not mny people seem to be around these days:cry:

anyway,i am doing ok,just waiting for my op date to have my gallbladder removed due to the gallstones,hopefully wont be long now.

for those of you that dont know me, i started liptorim on march 7th 2008 weighing 17 stone 13lbs/size 26 waist/bmi 43 and i finished on the 21st august 2008 weighing 9 stone 7lb/size 8-10:D :D :D :D took me around 24 weeks of total food replacement to shift it.

today i am still maintaining my weight without any problem at all, i still get weighed at the chemist once every two weeks just to keep an eye on the weight but i am weighing in at 9 stone 9 today, i have never gone over 9 stone 10 since i started eating so i am really happy as i was so scared that i would pile it all back on.

good luck everybody:p:D

Good to hear from you Nicki, good to hear you are maintaining and happy with life. Good luck with the op!!

This forum needs the likes of you back (was thinking that only yesterday) as it seems to me, a lot of the possitivity and support has gone, I get the impression people come on here now to moan and complain, rather than be positive and support each other through the hard times!! Probably why soooo many seem to be throwing in the towel........ IMHO

Hi Nicky
Thank you for your support to us all. It is lovely to read about successes to help you along the way. I have been on LT for 6 weeks and lost 30lb. I also read some of your refeed earlier about the pain you were in, that was worrying do you think the sudden weight loss was to blame for the gallstones, I hope im not being to nosey. take care

how are you getting on?
I am really good thanks, never felt better. Now I know how all those smug looking thin people feel!!!!

Still worried about what will happen when fully of LT and maintaining (all the online scare stories have properly scared me!!) but will cross that when I get there.

Have you found maintaining easy?

i dont know to be honest, i do know that gallstones can be caused by rapid weight loss but they can also be caused by obesity and a few other things too,i couldve already had them there before but with no symptoms, it was day 3-4 of refeed that i got my first gallstone attack but i think it was the fact that my gallbladder had no need to release bile when i was on total food replacement as there was next to no fat to break down but as soon as i started eating again it had to work again,contracting to release the bile and unfortunately pushing out a gallstone which then got stuck in my bile duct for the evening lol ouch:cry: i have since then suffered with tenderness every day and was getting gallstone attacks every few days although i havent had a bad one for a couple of weeks now

bit long winded i know lol but i cant really say if it is the diet that caused them although it does make sense as i had no problems beforehand.

i will say that i don't regret for one minute doing lipotrim, i would still weigh 18 stone now if i didnt do it probably more...so i guess i will just deal with this and wait to have the op,however the gallstones were caused it doesn't really matter now as there is nothing i can do about it but i wouldnt go back and not do the diet if i could change it


good luck hun xxxx

Lovely to hear you again Nicki, I've read your refeeding diary and wondered how you were doing!

i was worried sick when i first started eating and got really down about it but to be honest i have relaxed now and i am having no problems whatsoever keeping the weight off so far, i dont think food will ever be an issue for me again to be honest, i still have things that we call 'naughty' but i have them in moderation instead of the whole lot ! lol no more binges or crazy cravings for things. i felt a bit out of control for the first few weeks but i think once i realised that as long as i didnt eat like a pig i wasnt going to pile the weight back on, i realised that it is possible to keep it off and it isnt really that hard at all

i am sure you will be fine hun

all the best xxx
