Hi everyone, i am so glad that I found this site, it is truly inspirational! You are all so supportive and it's great to know that others are or have been experiencing the same journey. I have been very overweight for 25 years and have tried loads of diets but never did very well on any of them. Through a traumatic event in my 10 year relationship last week, I finally had a big kick up the butt and decided that I had had enough of being fat - of not being able to run, always sweating, having to really pull myself up off the sofa, being out of breath at the top of the stairs plus the threat of diabetes and all the other medical issues that obese people have. On Saturday I started on Lipotrim and so far it's going great. I have been hungry but not starving. I'm really surprised by this as I thought I would be constantly craving but it hasn't happened yet. My start weight was 18st 7lb. My first weigh in is Friday so fingers crossed. I would like to get to 11st. A long journey but well worth it.
