    Hi Guys

    Just quick question for anyone whos a re starter. I started Lipo at 14 stone and now im 11 however I came off too soon when my BMI was on border of healthy and overweight. I weigh myself most days on my wii fit and most days its normal and then some its like 25.5. I really want to get back on but I was wondering can the chemist refuse to put u on if your BMI falls below 25???

    If you are continuing your Lipotrim journey with the same chemist your best bet is to go in and talk to them as they have your record of weight loss to date and would be in a better position to advise what you should do next as they treat each case on an individual basis.

    You are absolutely right if you are starting off on your weight loss journey you do need to have one stone to lose above a BMI of 25 in order to do TFR.

    It is somewhat different when you have been on it already to lose weight and you come off it for a break etc.

    They take your weight loss record history into account and make a decision if you are suitable or not to continue on with TFR.

    The main problem for most former LT dieters is that they can find it extremely difficult to stick with TFR again, but you do have the option of the maintenance shakes and bars which also show good weight loss results if you use them with a meal to lose weight.

    I am sure the pharmacist will explain all this to Jo when she sees them.

    My experience is that most Chemists are in it for the money. No profit in turning people away. No harm in asking, and bet you wont get turned away.

    Am hoping to do likewise myself, having enjoyed Chrimbo it is my intention to LT for 3 weeks in Jan, then do a proper refeed/healthy eating regime, as havent really done that yet.
