After two years of personal turmoil and eating and drinking for comfort, stress, depression, anxiety, loneliness and any other excuse i could think of the 2nd of January was the start of the new me. So after a conversation with my doctor regarding VLCD's in which he wheeled out every scare story he could but eventually admitted there was mo medical reason why i shouldn't do it so long as i didn't stay on it for more than twelve months!!! As if. from doctors to pharmacy, registered and bought my first weeks supply of Lipotrim all ready to start on 2nd. days one and two went reasonably wee, day three was ok, a bit of a headache and a nasty taste in my mouth. Today i'm on day 4 and struggling a bit, i want food!!!! its the first time i have done total food replacement but i am determined to shift some weight and it also keeps me off the wine so its win win but i just need a boost to my willpower. I must admit i weighed myself this morning and was amazed at how much i had lost, i know its all water but it did give me a boost. back to work tomorrow and hoping that i will cope better when i am busy.
