    Well.... I finally decided to bite the bullet and go on a radical diet to give me the kick start i need. I'm not massively overweight - i'm a size 14/16 but just lately i've been hovering on the 16/18 mark and as i'm only 5ft4 i was feeling uncomfortable and bloated. I need to lose about 2 stone - but I have no strict 'target weight', i just want to feel slimmer, look slimmer and get back into some of the size 10/12 clothes I could wear 10 years ago.

    I'm fit (although I do smoke) I swim 1/2 mile 3 times a week and jog a bit when the weather is nice! (so not very often!). I walk the dog every day and have a busy, hectic job. My main problem is that I LOVE FOOD!!! I dont listen to my body screeming at me that i'm full and will ALWAYS finish my plate full - which is about the same size as my husbands!! I found myself eating for the sake of it and got fed up with being over-full and bloated all the time.

    I started Lipotrom TFR on 11th August - i need something that strict to keep me focused otherwise I will 'cheat' like i have done on so many other diets! The first day was hellish! The shakes made me gag they were VILE! I started adding 220ml of water and a handful of crushed ice and found they are actully pretty nice when taken this way! I was soooo hungry for the first 2 days and the smell of food made my mouth actually water! I've also had some pretty graphic dreams about food... whicj is very weird as i'm not normally a 'dreamer'. It freeked me out at first but now i hope I do dream about food - it stops me thinking about it all bloody day!!

    I'm on my 5th day today and have my first weigh-in on Wednesday. I dont care what the scales say (although I hope they say i've lost 11Ib, but i doubt it!!!) I'm already feeling better and my size 16 trousers need a belt now instead of leaving a burning red ring round my middle! I can actually SEE results - which i'm gobsmacked about after just 5 days! It's probaly just the water I was retaining that has gone but I feel absolutely great now, loads of energy, and i'm looking forward to the new 'slim' me!

    To anyone out there who is thinking of starting this diet - think long and hard. It's hard, especially when you LOVE food as much as I do. Your breath is VILE for the first few days, and the shakes taste is an aquired one to say the least! On a positive note, they taste better by day 3 and by day 5 you will look forward to them!

    As your taste changes, so does your shape. I am quite prepared for this to be a life-changing experinece and i've finally realsied that I can survive erfectly well without a mountain of food on my plate and an over-full belly!

    Good luck :)
