    Hi Babe,

    Have you started LT? Im sure if u do LT then you wont need to get gastric band?! This diet rocks - it will change ur life and u will loose weight soooo easily! All u need is the determination to make it happen and the vision of why you are doing it and who you want to become... if you got that babe - LT does the rest!

    Good luck

    Lipotrim is a TFR programme (Total Food Replacement). You have 3 shakes per day, NO FOOD and only water/black tea/black coffee. It is available through some GPs and pharmacies. You get weighed every week when you get your new supply of shakes.

    LT advise that those sticking to the diet 100% should lose about 1 stone every 4 weeks and heavier people tend to lose more.

    Hope that has helped.

    Welcome Laura. My friend had a gastric band fitted and one year later looks fantastic. I did consider one but didn't really want to go the surgical route coz I have 3 children and didn't want to risk it. Also, financially it was a no-no as there was no way I could find the £7k it cost my friend to have fitted.

    You are young and deserve to be gorgeous and slim (I'm sure you are gorgeous anyway!)

    All the best hun.

    Welcome aboard Laura :) I'm just down the road from you @ Southsea, Portsmouth :)

    Good luck with the gastric band... I personally see it as extreme but then I've had many people look aghast at me when I tell them I've not eaten since May so it's all relative :D

    All the very best with whatever you choose :) x

    No Laura, it isn't a lot to ask and I'm sure you will achieve your goal. From what my friend says, the band makes your stomach smaller so you really have to make sure you eat healthily. If you overeat it will stretch your stomach and you are back where you started.

    What a great GP you have. I'm glad you don't have to pay.

    I am also hoping to lose 9 stone in total and am two-thirds of the way there. I feel I have been regenerised and have a new lease of life. I am older than you and just wish this diet was around for me years ago as it is the best decision I have ever made.

    Good luck with the surgery and do keep in touch and let us know how you are doing.
