    I'm getting worried about the loose skin I am getting around my stomach and breasts and underarms and I'm really wanting to join the gym and tone up but also want to do cardio and weights to tone - but I lacked energy last time I tried but was ok with weights. Basically I am happy with my weight but not happy with how my body looks? I was hoping another stone may help?

    The dilemma now is do I start refeed now (with some tuna salad in the evening) and then start a new gym membership for 12months (as I wanted to originally when I finished LT) today and begin a bit of exceriise to lose the last stone or so I need to lose. Ideally would like to be around 9st9lbs.

    I am excited about being able to have a meal today but I think I would also be refeeding for quite a few weeks....

    -----Started refeed yesterday:

    19/3/2010
    --------------
    Breakfast
    - Lipotrim Strawberry Shake (Medical forumla)

    Lunch
    -
    Lipotrim Strawberry Shake (Medical forumla)

    Lunch
    - 70g of canned Tuna Brine (drained) with some sweet salad, red pepper, spring onion and sprinked with some ground peppper.

    Liquids: 2 1/2 Litres of Water

    Felt nice having a meal and started to notice my cravings come back later on in the day. Weird but nice in a way.

    Checked for Ketones on 20/3 AM and showing pinky/purpley.

    Thank you all,

    - Minimin

    Hiya just read your post and I am in the same dilema. I really want to loose another stone and tone up but not sure if lipo is the way to go or diet and excersise. My belly is a bit flabby and I want it to go! Would it just disapear if I loose the weight on TFR or do I need to start excersising? Last time I did lipo I was worried that excersising was going to hinder my weight loss.

    You have done brilliantly : ) I read somewhere that it can take a year or more for your skin to adjust to your new shape. If you take another stone off, you will probably have more loose skin. Bit of toning up wouldn't go amiss I suppose but remember that muscle weighs more. Think it also depends on your age and the elasticity of your skin. Doesn't tuna taste fab after all those shakes? yum yum : )

    Day four

    Now this is where it get's interesing lol!

    I decided to take and plunge and try the Caramel Maintence Bar free sample, and oh my gosh, it was very tasty! I was shocked and actually felt like I was cheating! I immediately got on the phone to Lipotrim and ordered a months worth!

    Day Four:

    Home scales showing this AM - 63.6KG
    Checked for Ketones and showing pinky/purpley.

    Got weighed this morning around 12noon and my weight went down from 66.4Kg to 63.9Kg altho the chemist scales were playing up last week!

    So here is day four;



    22/3/2010
    --------------
    Breakfast
    - Lipotrim Maintence 60g Caramel Bar

    Lunch
    Small chicken breast + 3 baby potatoes with salad, onions, peppers


    Snack
    1/4 of an apple - made me hungry for around 1 hour after :X

    Dinner
    - 70g of canned Tuna Brine (drained) with some mixed salad, two portions of Green Giant Niblets, two portions of microwaved baby mushrooms (gorg) and sprinked with some ground peppper. Also with a nice helping of Petit Pois (never had these before but very nice!) along with two baby potatoes.

    Snack
    1 slice (42kal) wholemeal brown bread plain toasted with a cup of tea after (same as above).


    Liquids: 2 Litres of Water

    I don't know why but I felt like I had too much for my dinner :( Feel quite guilty.

    I went Tescos this PM and got home quite late and had my dinner @ around 930pm. Enjoyed the meal tho very much.

    I also bought some prawns from Tesco and have in the freezer for defrosting, first time ever bought them. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas for these tmrw? I was thinking Fromage Frais 100g with prawns and some salad and baby potatoes and sweetcorn for lunch and maybe a chicken salad for dinner.

    Also I spoke to Lipotrim a few times today while ordering the maintence bars and learnt somethings about refeeding;

    • On refeed you can have any tea you like does not have to be only green as long as you use skimmed milk
    • You can have a full can of tuna (130g drained) if you like altho I only manage half a tin
    • You can consider vitamins after refeed but they are not really required as your getting most of the things from what your eating
    • The sugar content of the caramel bars are to help keep the blood sugar level down and keep you full for longer and is nothing to worry about
    • Altho not stated, you can have eggs during refeed from the start, you can replace these at meal times for the potatoes or chicken etc - only boiled eggs. Limit to 3-4 eggs a week
    • You can have portions of Green Giant sweetcorn niblets in your refeed program - i was shocked as they taste so sweet!
    • Best to avoid fruit in the first week of refeed as it can trigger hunger
    • Only use the maintence formula after day 7 although you can swap and change during refeed if you have the diet formulas left...
    • Don't add any EXTRA as this will slowly add up
    • Ketosis may be present for first days but will level out during the week
    • Once you started eating again, the loose skin usually tightens up as your replacing your glycogen stores, so you should give this time....

    Hope this helps people. Wow i'm full as I had my dinner late.

    Anyone have ideas for prawns and lunch tmrw. Is it true that if I have the Fromage Frais in the lunch I cant use Tuna fish in there aswell or prawns?

    Thanks for reading

    Day 5

    Day five
    - Did 100 situps this AM with weight sitting on my tummy.

    Ketones - Traces (very light pink)
    Home scales showing this AM
    Weight today - 63.5Kg

    23/3/2010
    --------------
    Breakfast (around 650am)
    - Lipotrim Diet Formula Strawberry Milkshake (miss the caramel bar!) + 1 42cal wholegrain bread slice + 1/4 cup of tea with skimmed milk - didn't finish as was not very nice!

    Proposed Lunch
    Tried to prepare this......(not very well though)....
    [​IMG]
    Warm rice & prawn salad from BBC Good Food


    I added (created 2-3 servings);
    210g cooked and peeled prawns
    50g green giant sweetcorn
    50g cucumber
    25g sweet red pepper
    10g spring onions
    30g baby mushrooms
    sprinkle of mint and black ground pepper
    40g petit pois
    20g leaf salad
    sprinke of salt
    1 mug of brown rice

    Made this AM to take with me for lunch and may have for dinner again.....only tasted a bit of the rice to make sure it was cooked, don't think it turned out gr8 tho, bland. Took a pic if anyone wants to look.


    This was quite nice but the portion size was quite big! It a bit bland but i loved the prawns and flavour (never made prawns before). Felt quite full after and took about 25mins to eat it! (was peating slow and putting spoon down after each spoonfull). Had this around 12-1pm.





    Dinner @ around 6pm
    Reduced what I had here due to quite big portion of lunch earlier! Had around 75g of plain tuna (with nothing added) apart from a handful of plain baby mushrooms microwaved.


    Nothing else from here on wards apart from water.


    Liquids: 2 1/2 Litres of Water & 2 Mugs of Tea with Skimmed milk

    Hi Taylor,

    I did cheeck with Lipotrim and they are allowed right from the start and are in the refeed plan, however they recommend you definately come off the diet shakes after week 1 of refeed because the mechanism it uses (ketosis) no longer works correctly as your eating again. The bars use a special formula where the contents are absorbed slower and therefore keep you full up longer.

    Hope this helps :)

    Minimin, your refeed seems to be going well for you. Keep an eye to your portion sizes, if you are concerned about eating too much. Either use a smaller plate or make sure your portion just fills the centre of a larger plate.

    I would say carrying on LT trying to lose 'flab' like me, after thinking hard and speaking to lipotrim and other people, I think your just going to end up with more flabby skin if you try and 'tone' using LT. Also you could risk simply losing muscle muslce from major organs. Your much better off starting refeed and excercising to tone to actually turn your skin more toned up and also the refeed will help fill out some of the fat (so say Lipotrim). Its up to you at the end of day, hope you make the right choice.

    Yeh seems to make me more hungry the fruit. Im going to try water first see if that makes the hunger go and wait at least 20mins after a main meal before deciding to eat again. Increasing maintennce bar to 2x a day today aswell.
