    Old Diary (Lipotrim): here.
    Round 2...

    Hi, I'm Abbey :)

    I lost 3 stone on Lipotrim between November 2013 and February 2014 (went from nearly 14st to under 11st), and had every intention of switching to Slim & Save after my birthday in March to lose a further 2-3 stone. Well, I bought a month's worth and was on it for two weeks, lost half a stone nearly (got down to 10st9) and put it all back on plus a little bit more when I came off Slim & Save for my friend's 18th in early April. I haven't managed to get motivated enough since.

    Right now, I'm about 11st1lb (155lb), 40lb down from what I was in November but still 30lb away from where I want to be. I'm a size 10 - 12 but I have chunky thighs still and belly fat.

    I'm restarting Slim & Save Simplicity on Monday 12th May 2014 to get down to 8-9st; I know it's light, I'm not aiming to be skinny or look ill, I just want to be slim and lean and that's still a healthy BMI for me. I'm hoping that by losing weight with Slim & Save and by exercising (walking, aqua aerobics and toning exercises) I'll look fab for Summer!

    Reasons for doing this (again):
    - Look and feel great for Summer
    - Start surfing
    - Bikini's!

    - Confidence
    - Be able to buy and wear whatever clothes I like (and in a smaller size)
    - Be fit & healthy
    - Lose belly/leg fat
    - Wear a dress with confidence
    - Not be jealous of slim friends
    - To prove to everyone that I can do it (again)

    I can admit to myself that I fell of the wagon a bit these last few months, but I'm determined now to get it done so I never have to look and feel this way again!
    Feel free to add me on fb (link above icon)

    Here's a picture of me before November 2013 compared to now:

    I'd really appreciate any support and advice, such as exercising techniques, how to get rid of lumpy legs and lose skin etc. I start on Monday!

    well done on your journey so far. I think you look great already! I'm sure once you get into the swing of things again you'll get to a weight you're comfortable with quickly.

    I'm on week 3 and loving it. I feel great and although I've not weighed since week one (lost 8lbs) I can really feel changes already. I'm just starting to experiment more with the food. Celeriac and swede chips are a lot better then I thought!

    Good luck for Monday.

    Hi there :)

    Thank you, I like knowing that although I'm not where I want to be yet, I'm nowhere near where I was.

    Ah well done! When are you next going to weigh yourself? Sounds good, I'm sticking to Simplicity though to avoid temptation!

    Good luck with the rest of your journey x

    Ta Abbz - it's been a complete life changer for us TBH. My main gripe now is the loose skin around my stomach, all I can do is keep working hard with an aim to fill the flabby shell with Muscle.

    I've got a Cruise in August and another in November and I'm darn sure I'll not be piling on pounds due to over indulging this time on unlimited food and drink. I think I'll just live on liquid for the 3 weeks :)

    And so, it begins!
    My official start weight this time is 11st1.5lb, not too bad I don't think, means that overall I've only put on a pound a half since the end of Lipotrim in February. Already had one strawberry milkshake, was yummy! Feeling really determined and today is also the start of my workout routine:

    [TABLE="width: 400"]
    [TD]Leg Toning Routine[/TD]
    [TD]Tummy Toning Routine[/TD]
    [TD]Aquacise (Aqua Aerobics)[/TD]
    [TD]Leg Toning Routine[/TD]
    [TD]Tummy Toning Routine[/TD]

    So, I've already lost 20% of my body weight, when I reach 10st6 (146lb) it will be 25%, and when I reach 10st5 (145lb) i can join the half century club for losing 50lb! :)

    Hi Abbz I have restarted today. I had my op and now I feel great. So i ordered tfr diet online 4 shakes or a bar and a noodley thing for dinner. I have a week of lipo left so I will have 4 weeks in total on tfr. My scales are broken so no idea what I weigh. Still a size 12 but I have belly and back fat to get rid of. Good luck.

    Hey Mazzy! Haven't heard from you in a while, how have you been? Pleased that your op went well :)
    Sounds good, is it Exante? or something similar? Best of luck!

    Your exercise routine looks good.

    How are you getting on? Hope you're having a good day

    Thank you! It's enough to gradually tone me up and increase my fitness but not so much that it will overly exhaust me
    I'm doing fine, had a good day! I hope you have to? :)
