Week 36 WI - 12 stone/168lbs gone.

Hi lovely people,

Bit shocked this week as I lost 5lbs, (I was expecting 2lbs at the most) so that brought me up to a total of 12 stone loss. I still can't believe I've lost 12 stone in just 8 months. It will take a while for my mind to catch up with my body, as I look at my reflection and don't know who the hell I am!

Anyhow, my lovely pharmacist would like me to refeed. So I've decided to weigh in on Friday, see what I lose and take it from there. I will most probably refeed as I've been told by people that I've lost enough. Usually I would ignore people and do what I want but I figure they're right. The people I love so very dearly and who have always supported me no matter what, and have said 'We're happy, if you're happy' have also said I look perfect as I am now, and if I lose anymore I will begin to look ill. So I'm taking their advice onboard.

So my real journey looks like it will begin on Friday/Saturday. LT to me was never the beginning, just a prelude. The start of my journey begins when I refeed/maintain. The people who lose the weight and keep it off will always be my inspiration. They're the real heroes/heroines. I only hope and pray I can make myself proud.

Here's a little 12 stone loss photo. Some very very kind person put my before together with the latest one to show the difference.

You are truly amazing and look great - Wish you all the best with the refeed and I am sure you'll manage to keep the weight off if youve had the willpower to stick at this diet for as long as you have - Make sure you keep us all posted on how you are getting on with refeed as this is one of the things i worry about when i start my refeed - but ive only been at it for 7 weeks now and have a long way to go yet, but for you not having ANY food and sticking to it 100% for 36weeks - I think your tastebuds are going to go mental !!

good luck,
claire xx

Wow - how amazing are you!!!???
Well done; you're obviously a very strong woman to have stuck to LT for 8 months.
I'm sure you'll make re-feed work for you.
Wow finding words hard to come by as it has all been said. You look knockout and you must be so proud of yourself. I am only on day 4 of restarting but your determination has so inspired me to carry on THANK YOU
Oh my word, how inspiring are you??? WOW!!! You look amazing, thankyou for posting your success because I sure needed a reminder of how amazing this diet can be! Well done you!

Betsy, what can I possibly add!!!! You are literally half the woman you were, physically, but twice the woman you were, emotionally, mentally. Your determintation and effort to succeed is unmatched. Your achievement is phenomenal. Well done and all the very best for refeed.

Betsy - there are not enough words to express how fantastic you are. You are simply amazing. Your strength and willpower just superhuman.

I started my journey around the same time as you and at a similar weight - I only wish I had half the strength and willpower as you to have carried on and be as successful but I couldn't. I did achieve a lot but nowhere near as much as you.

You are just simply gorgeous, amazing, wonderful, a true poster girl for Lipotrim

Congratulations you little superstar :D :D Well done
