Hi Everyone I have tried doing Lipotrim and lost 2 stone before but I started my second atempt 2 weeks ago and although I lost 10lbs in 2 weeks is great I could feel myself on the verge of depression again. I feel the main problem is that all of my friends are social people who like going out and having fun. Unfortunately for me most of my friends are naturally skinny and can eat and drink what they like without gaining a thing. I have so mnay nights out birthdays, days out planned that going back on Lipotrim is now proving impossible and I cannot work around it without acting like a social recluse. Each day I set out to be strict and then something crops up that I cannot avoid meaning I have cheated on almost every day. What I have been doing though is couting all of my calories on my fitness pal and ensuring I only eat a small amount of the things I like or chose a healthy option. With all these cheats included I am absolutely delighted to say that I continue to lose weight. Yesterday I had half a muffin and a skinny latte as well as some jaffa cakes and some popcorn and due to my tiny portions of each my overall calories for the day incuding 2 healthy meals measured out was just under 1200. I know it seems stupid as everyone has always said you need to consume less than you burn but something has just sort of clicked in my head and I realise that i do not need to deprive myself anymore or make a scene about being on diet. It is a simple case of either ordering a lower calorie option or having something naughty but having just a few bites. Half of the muffin I had yesterday was 200 calories as apposed to the 400 I would have eaten if I had the whoe thing as usual. Granted I wont lose up to a stone a month as per Lipotrim but looking at the scales and having investigated further it would appear that as long as I stick to around 1200 calories a day nothing is off limits and therefore I am on a new mission to gain control over portion size. I have now left the miserable world of Lipotrim and I am on a new adventure of calories counting. I have now realised that it is far less miserable to have a smaller portion than to deprive myself of everything I love. Here goes to a new way of thinking. Hopefully this is a diet I will be able to stick to )) Out of interest how many calories does everyone else on here eat a day?
