Thank you Aligal, living well in your old age is a great reason. My Mother in Law in her 80's is in great shape and still hikes and travels. My own Mother is in her 70's lived most of her life obese and she is very restricted with her mobility . Having a great quality of life is important to the end. I personally would keep going as you are, as without a doubt it is better to do it slowly and create a lifestyle change at the same time. For me, I have created that lifestyle change now, in between Lipotrim I also did keto, and realise from that, my issue is the carbs. Sitting studying a lot, combined with re-introducing wine, was what created the recent weight gain. I plan to switch back onto keto at some point, then introduce carbs and wine slowly, not in one big hit like I did last time. I just want an initial drop in weight so that I can feel more comfortable during summer. It will also make my hikes/runs a lot easier carrying less kilos. It is sad you don't have children, however by now they would be grown up, flown the nest and living their own lives, like my grown up girls. Have a great day! Heading out on my hike now!Good luck with your new job, Jess.
I think compelling reasons are essential. Mine are living well in my old age and sometimes I find it difficult to make that compelling! Sadly I have no children. Short term poor decisions and old habits are so easy to slide into.
I was successful with a VLCD diet but didn't sustain iit. So this time I am doing something slower that I hope to sustain. However, I am tempted by the results you and others get to do one again!
Congratulations on your own progress.
