Newbie on Lipotrim

#1
Hi guys :D
Newbie here :wave_cry: I'm starting the lipotrim TFR today. I was on it a few years ago and only lasted 2 weeks :eek: I'm determined to do it this time can't believe how big I've let myself go:cry: I have at least 5 stone to lose. I'm just terrified that if I did lose that amount of weight would my skin go all flabby and saggy?! I'm 28 and have pretty good skintone but still I'm worried.
Has anyone any experience of this happening or how/if I can stop it?

Thanks in advance

Hi Ziggy and welcome.

Regarding saggy skin, the only thing you can do is sit ups i would think to tighten the muscles up, but in regards to skin the only option is surgery (if its that bad) ive been big all my life and had my son in December laast year so i have a bit of saggy skin already (i went huge!) but im not to bothered at the min, if you get to a healthy BMI you can go to the NHS to try for a tummy tuck as my friend just had her boobs and tummy done after losing 5 stone. BUT you have to have a BMI under 25.

How are you finding it? I know its so hard the `st 2 weeks were the hardest to me but when the weight started coming i couldnt beleive it and in 8 weeks lost 30lb and thats with several blips!!!

Hello and welcome aboard the LT train ... destination slim-ville lol :)

Well done for making the decision to change and i wish you all the best of luck on the journey. I wouldn't think or worry about stuff like sagging skin either, just think of the reasons you have decided to make the change, all the positives and set yourself mini goals etc.

Be sure to use this forum as its full of such fabulous people who offer so much support and motivation which really makes a difference :) Good luck again x

Good luck - with everything. Nobody knows who is going to get saggy skin until it happens I'm afraid. If you get worried at any point on your journey you can always come off and maintain to lose the weight slower to give your body a chance to catch up. Afraid all quick loss diets have that risk - make sure you tell your pharmacist this is your big concern and to keep an eye on the situation.
