Starting LT at last!!!

Dumpy2Petite

Lovin' those ketones!!
#1
At last - I have finally been to the chemist and got my first LT pack!!! Wooooo!!! :party0049:

I've been waiting weeks for today to come around, as I have booked time off from work so I won't be surrounded by nasty temptations during those crucial first few days! And also so I can be a grumpy, headachy cow on my own without inflicting it on my colleagues! :p

So I start tomorrow... I am v excited (and a bit apprehensive!). I was shocked at the initial weigh-in though - I'm now 11 stone 13 lbs - the heaviest I have EVER been! :eek::eek::eek:

I've got 5 stone to lose to get down to just under 7 stone (6 stone 13 will give me a BMI of 21.7). I can hardly believe I'll really get there... I have tried so many diets, only to plateau so soon - even before losing a stone - and ending up giving up. I have an under-active thyroid so losing any weight in the past has been almost impossible.

BUT... thanks to all of your fantastic successes on here, I am beginning to entertain the thought that maybe, just maybe, this time I'll get there. LT may just be the diet I have needed all these years! I am determined to give it a damn good shot anyway and will stick to it like glue!

And I know where to come if I need inspiration, advice, or even a good solid kick up the bum! :D So I've got no excuses this time!!!

Wish me luck! :) xxx

Thanks guys! :thankyou:

It's scary that I've got so far to go - my BMI has gone up to 37, which is only 3 away from morbidly obese (40)! :eek: Apparently I'm "super obese" - oooh lucky me! :rolleyes:

So I really need to get this sorted - NOW! :eek:

Hiya Gem!

I'm only 4" 8' m8 - I'm a piskie! :D

Which is why being 5 stone overweight is so scary - all that on my little frame! It's gotta go! Just think, if I can get there I'll have nearly halved my weight!!! :eek:

My ticker says I've got 67lbs to lose, but actually it's 70 - it won't let you put in any weight under 100 lbs (7stone 2lbs). :rolleyes: Although it'll be a bloody miracle just to get to that! :)
