    I start on Lipotrim tomorrow.

    It's the usual story, I've handed over vast sums to slimming clubs and my shelves are positively creaking with books by atkins, mckeith, the food doctor etc. Oh I've lost weight alright but it's just been put back on with interest! (not helped by my moronic need to stay in a dreadful relationship (father of my son)).

    I have been overwieght for 12 years (OMG!!! that looks much worse when you see it written) I currently weigh 13st 12lbs and am a size 18. I'm happy to report that I am now in an amazing relationship - living with him, my son and 2 fab cats in Herts. I just need to lose the weight to feel complete and am absolutely ready for this. Bring it On!!!

    What's different this time?... well I hope by being active on this site that my chances will improve. You see, in the past I've been so ashamed of my weight that I wouldn't share my diet with anyone, I just wanted to be left alone to do it by myself....not good.

    Wish me luck

    I'm off now to look into getting a tracker and all those lovely bits you all have attached to your messages -speak soon

    Thanks for your support.

    First Lipotrim day nearly over now and although I feel terribly pleased that I made it through, I am not going to begin to pretend that it has been easy.

    I am totally shocked at how obssessed I am with food and how much one person can think about it in one day!!!??

    Have drawn so much strength from reading through peoples experiences so hoping that this 'feeling sorry for myself' will go in time like it has for many of you.

    A quick question for someone to help me with. How do I change my subject header?? -looked it up and says double right click at side of thread title - doing this but not working for me

    Well done on getting through your first day, the first few days can be tough but it soon becomes a whole new way of life.

    Can't promise that you'll stop thinking about food a lot, one of my LL group used to read cookbokks everynight, she called it her 'food porn':D

    Good luck with day 2 and keep us posted.

    Well I'm nearly through my 2nd day and as so many of you wonderful people out there advised, I will update my thread with how it has been.

    It's funny but yesterday I felt absolutely ravenous :( rumbling stomach and all. Today very different - not phisically hungry but mentally hungry. It's been weird because I have a terrible feeling of loss - I am in mourning for the loss of food from my day. However, I keep telling myself that the loss is only temporary and the more I stick to this, the quicker the time will come to when I can enjoy eating again (all be it healthily!;))

    The other feeling I have is like being on tender hooks waiting for something to happen - I just can't settle - I guess I must be excited that I may be finally on track to feel attractive again.

    It's funny how much my mind has a grip over me. 2 days ago I would be constantly tell myself off for letting myself down. I'd look in the mirror and see a frumpy, dumpy old bag but today I look at myself and feel very different :).

    I don't plan to weigh myself at home.....that could be lethal for me. I don't want to get too obsessed with the scales. Too little weight lost and I will go and comiserate with food and a good weight loss might make me think that just one little cheat won't hurt "because I have done soooooooo well" That's been my downfall in the past.

    On the diet itself.......well all seems to be ok - I did try the chicken soup for a change and I have to say that it was absolutely horrific:eek: ! I'm not ready for it yet - had to throw it away and resort to having a vanilla shake instead. It might taste better to me in few weeks time.

    The incentive I received today was in the form of size 12 clothes I ordered :D . delivered to my door. They seem so small it's hard to imagine wearing them.....but wear them i bluddy will. Plan to hang them on the door of the bedroom as my incentive. I can't wait to get out of these sack cloths I've been wearing for 12 years. I absolutely love clothes and in my thin days really enjoyed fashion and had my own little look going on (i thought i looked great anyway:p !!). Now, I always wonder what people think when they see me in these awful things that drape from me - its awful but I just can't get excited about clothes when I am this size.

    Anyway those are my thoughts for today -I am now off to have my final shake........yum yum.

    I the 'food porn' comment really tickled me I have been giggling about ever since I read it.

    Well it's near the end of Day 3 for me........ still struggling but feel strangely confident all will be ok. Feeling really quite positive even though I have to confess I did have just a little cheat. This nasty incident happened whilst cooking dinner for my OH....... I couldn't resist putting a rather large spoonful of my offering into that hole (the one that always gets me into trouble!) beneath my nose :( Actually when I say 'a' spoonful I actually mean 2 or 3 large spoonfuls :eek: .

    A bit dissapointing but I'm not going to let it play on mind.

    I will resist tomorrow.........I will resist tomorrow.......I WILL....I WILL..... I WILL
