Knock, knock, knock - can I come in?

Hi my name is Kirstie and I’m 33.

Please may I join your lovely group?

A bit about me:

I have always had a problem with my weight having tried everything over the years from various classes to pills and bizarre diet fads. In 2008 I discovered a Lipotrim VLCD and it was amazing, I managed to loose 4st in 4 months! I won’t admit it was easy but my desire to be slim really helped keep me motivated and once into ketosis it definitely got easier.

Second time round this is significantly harder, I just can’t get my head into it I’ll start off well but give in by day 3/4, I know I can do it but just need some mental help hence trying LL.

My weight has always fluctuated (as with most ladies) but right now I’m quickly working my way right back towards the heaviest I’ve ever weighed. In 2008/9 I managed to loose 4st reaching a size 10/12. Having reverted back to not eating properly I have found myself piling on the pounds at an alarming rate. I currently weigh 12st 9lb, I’m 5’ 4” and size 16.

So this is me, I’ve had it with being fat and feeling rubbish about myself. Having tried to restart Lipotrim on so many occasions and failing within 1-5 days I have decided to try LL hoping the group counselling will help sort my head out and help me to keep the weight off.

My first session is on the 16th and I can't wait to start.

So this is me, here goes, wish me luck...:p

Slowly shrinking again!
Welcome... and well done on your losses in the past... :)

You know you can do it, after all, you did do it! But this time, with the counselling, I think you'll be sorted! Keeping the weight off is so tough... your story is similar to mine... lost large amounts of weight before, through various different diets, but it always creeps back on... This time, though, we're dealing with my food issues, and we're gonna nip those bad habits of the past, in the bud! And as Carrie said, do it right this time, and we'll never be back here again! :D
