Well hello! First things first, I am not actually on Lipotrim yet. I am off to the Pharmacy tomorrow, with the first day being Wednesday (as that is the only day I can commit to weekly weigh ins). I have decided to start this diary today because now I have made my decision, it is very important I keep in mind why I am doing this. I am also using today and tomorrow to reduce down my food intake to three meals a day (yes - I have been having about 10) just to prepare a little. I am also going to get straight onto the black tea and coffee (is green tea ok anyone?). I have only told my sister and o/h about what I am doing, as me and o/h live together it would be silly to try and hide it. He has told me he "Doesn't agree with it but will support me all of the way" and I can't say fairer than that. Making his evening meal will be a struggle as I can't even get all of the food fro the oven to the plate without picking! But I'm ready to do this properly. All weekend I was umming and aahing trying to convince myself that some healthy eating and exercise would suffice. But that is the attitude that has got me to where I am now, and of course if you do what you've always done you'll get what you've always got...and I want something different. My loose plan from here is to complete 100% TFR for 12 weeks and then review things. My current weight will be given when I get to the pharmcy on Tues, however I am guessing it is around 19 stone so I can see LT being more long term than 12 weeks however it is a good starting point. I plan to have the first two weeks just settling into the plan then slowly bringing in some exercise. I am 28 years old and have no itention of reaching 29 and being in the 'obese' category. I want to be one of you that have already doen it - I want to be at the end of my journey but understand it needs a beginning first. So, this is the beginning of my diary, I hope I can use this to document my journey and keep me on track when I am doubting myself. I can do this.
