:welcome: Hi Sarah, well done for choosing the best thing since sliced bread.....oops! mustn't mention that! Just stick to it 100%, come on here as much as humanly possible to glean tips, hints and encouragement and once the first week or maybe two is under your belt, it will be a breeze. Better start putting some money aside, ready for a brand new wardrobe for a brand new YOU!
I started yesterday and am finding everyone's postings so helpful.
I have decided to do LT as I am so very tired of 'normal' dieting and hardly losing anything or if I do, gaining it all back...and then some. Feeling a bit headachy this morning (day 2) but am going to take it easy, I know it will pass. Going to do some serious walking as well...this time I mean business. I am scared that fitting into a cinema seat or airplane seat is becoming uncomfortable. It is the uncomfortable thing about being fat that bothers me more than anything, bathing, camping, swimming, fitting in behind the stearing wheel of my car....etc...etc. I am sure you all know the rest.
Thanks for the amazing inspiration everyone, and Good Luck!!
best of luck with the start. I am on day 5 now and honestly so far it's been great, no hunger pangs, no cravings. I don't know why. Perhaps it was just the right time for me, but I really think it has a lot to do with coming on here, chatting and posting, reading and replying. There are so many inspirational people on here, it makes it pleasant to be dieting - didn't ever think I'd hear myself say that. Best of luck.
having no trouble today at all (so far of course) just had my first shake (at 2:30! Not ideal i know - just got very busy at work!) already had 1.5 litres of water.
Pharmacist said to only drink 2 litres plus shakes & coffees etc. when i did this 3 years ago i was drinking that as a minimum, not a guideline. normally i drink 2 litres a day before lipotrim so should i only be drinking that or drinking 4-5 litres?
