    My pictures and story can be seen here on my blog

    I finished Lipotrim on the 18th of October, I'm not doing the Maintainence as per the book, (I just couldn't take any more shakes!) I've kept within 1 lb of my finishing weight so I think I'm doing OK, I worry a lot about putting it all back on though
    Maybe this place can help me out, I'll certainly recommend it to the readers of my blog still on the programme

    Well done, thats a fab loss, keep up the good work. The maintenance part will be hard for a while but worth it in the long run, its all about the long term changes in habit. Just keep on telling yourself how much better you feel without that extra 5 stone.

    Apart from the Lipotrim re-feeding programme is there another weight maintainance diet I can follow?

    Hi roy
    Congradulations on your fantastic weight loss. I have been on Lipotrim since August and to date have lost 3st 10 lbs, less than a stone to go. I'm intending to join Weight Watchers in order to keep the weight off. The core plan in WW is very easy to follow and you don't have to count points so you can adapt it for life. If you feel like me you definitely dont want to have to do Lipo again.

    Hi, no matter what plan you follow the maintaining is always going to be the hard bit. Not many rewards for staying the same weight, so i'd say maybe make yourself some other challenges to stay motivated and keep the weight off - maybe make some exercise goals?

    Brilliant loss, congratulations. I'm maintaining on JUDDD, basically eating what I like every other day then alternate days on half that calorie level. It works for me. Maintenance is in some ways harder than the original weight loss, after reaching goal some people seem to go back to their old habits and regain just as quickly. So whatever method you choose to maintain with has to be one you can keep to for life. Another of the girls on the forum who has just reached goal on a low carb diet is doing a very gradual reintroductions of other foods (which lasts 3 days per pound lost) then a one day a week just protein for life. It's just a question of finding a method which suits your tastes and lifestyle.
