    Totally there with you :wave_cry:

    Don't go to the chemist but i'm on and off the scales at home like nobody's business!!

    Know I shouldn't but i'd go crazy if I left it a whole week between WI's!!
    Do you have some scales at home? I know sneaky peeks are frowned upon but I find that they keep me going and motivated through the week :eek:

    It's very tempting I know, to keep weighing yourself, but you really shouldn't.

    Your weight is going to fluctuate all the time. I mean you're drinking lots of water, right? 1 litre of water weighs 1 kilo = 2.2 lbs.

    If you start fretting and freaking every time the weight loss slows down, or goes back up, if you're sweating and living and dying over every single pound, I can tell you now that you will NOT succeed on this program. You will quit before the end.

    The fact is, that on average, a man will lose 21lbs a month on Lipotrim. A woman will lose (on average) 14 lbs a month. That doesn't mean that you'll lose 3.2lbs a week like clockwork. Some weeks will be better than others, and it won't necessarily have anything to do with cheating. It's just biology.

    But ON AVERAGE, you'll lose 14lbs a month.

    Constantly weighing yourself is not going to change that. And obsessing over the scales is only going to harm your chances of success.

    I was like that the first two weeks. This week I'm not so bothered..partly because my scales are so tempramental I can't put any trust in them and also because I've reached the conclusion that jumping on the scales every morning makes no difference to my loss.

    I havnt been the slightest bit bothered through the week! dont get me wrong im desperate to go the Chemist and see how well iv done, but the thought hasnt crossed my mind to weigh myself on dodgy home bought scales!!!

    Try and keep busy, and remeber IT IS WORKING have a bit of faith! and leave the big surprises each week to your pharmacy visits!! xxx

    Yes, it's perfectly normal. They will pass. It seems to affect coffee-drinkers more than non-coffee drinkers, but in any case, they are a temporary symptom, and will pass.

    I am scales obsessed and I obsess over every single pound I lose. I jump on the scales at least 4 times a day :eek:

    I saw some really good scales somewhere recently that you can plug in via usb to your computer and track your weight! How cool!

    I weigh myself a couple of times a week and I always do it before I go for my weigh-in just incase I havent lost anything then I can prepare myself.

    stay a way from the scales this will soon pass otherwise time will drag whilst your on your LT journey look at it this way just getting weighed once a week at the chemist means you have something to look forward to

    all the best

    My scales are dodgy (cheap and nasty - and scary before LT!!!!) but I do use them occasionally just so I know what I weigh on them so that I can hopefully maintain my losses when I don't have a WI. The wii fit also weighs me differently but as long as it tells me I'm losing I don't mind!!!!
