I have just started this week and I still on the fast program.
I currently weigh 114 kilos and need to be around 65 kgs.
I am determined to give this a good go.
Just wondering should I be weighing myself daily or just once a week.

My name is Ron, I was 94.5 kgs on the 1st of Feb and am down to 89.5. My goal is 79kgs. I am finding that riding my bike has been a huge factor in my weight loss. I encourage people to get on a bike!

Hi Mel and Ron,
Well together we can all do it and well done Ron for doing so well so far.
I realise I only do about 3-5000 steps a day so I am going to have to really step up my Sue

I know I’m suppose to weigh myself once a week but I couldn’t wait. I feel a little disappointed that I have been on the shakes since Monday when I weighed myself at 112odd and this morning I am 111 odd. I thought I would have lost more by now as I am sticking to it making sure I am drinking 2 lets of water and the evening meal is 100g meat and 2 cups of salad, which I round out is a lot of food so I know when I do cook properly we don’t have that much so I know I am good with the evening meals.
I am on the shakes longer as I started straight away so really should be on day 4 but I am going with the emails I am getting sent each day following that.
The only sugar I am having is in my hot milo that I have. I make it with a tsp of milo, hot water, dash of milk and 1 tsp sugar but I am only having a couple of cups a day.

Factors which can play a role in weight loss include your metabolic rate and hormones. Some people tend to eat irregular meals, so when small regular meals are added on Bodytrim, the metabolism needs a bit of time to adjust. This can also be the case for hormones needing to balance out. The best thing to do is to stay consistent and allow your body time to adjust to these changes.
Do keep in mind that the best way to lose weight and keep it off long term is to do it slowly but surely. A weight loss of roughly 500g per week is said to be a healthy and safe pace so going by this recommendation you are actually doing very well!
Body weight tends to fluctuate throughout the day so we wouldn’t recommend weighing yourself too often as you could understandably get discouraged. Try and stick to a once a week weigh- in and instead maybe focus more on how this way of eating and exercise is making you feel, perhaps you have more energy than usual, or you notice your mood has improved? Don’t fixate too much on only that number on the scales, weight loss is a process and the best way to do it is gradually by staying consistent, being strong and trying not to get disheartened.
Be sure to keep us posted on how you’re going!

Im Lisa I started on Tuesday I am currently 82kg and would love to lose 14kg.
I used the old Body trim program, but felt I could not maintain the program. This program seems to be much easier and seems to allow a lot more food through out the week.

Hi i am in NZ, Im Jasmin and I am 83 kg, I have just started today here in NZ at 8 am with my first shake it tastes delicious but is not filling me up. I do not believe it contains as many nutrient as the container says. I think I will have a medium size lunch and then a small snack for dinner as well as my chocolate shake and maybe tomorrow morning add a raw egg to my shake for extra protein and to trick my stomach into thinking it is full.

oh I forgot to add my target eight is 72 kg but if I got to 70 kg i would be very happy as I want to be a size 14 again. I’m fed p with being a size 18-20, I feel fat and my stomach looks gross.

Welcome to the program!
The Bodytrim shakes are nutritionally balanced meal replacement shakes and are intended to be used to replace a breakfast, lunch or dinner meal. They provide a calorie- controlled meal option, and depending on the composition and calorie density of your meals previous to the program it is fairly possible that you will feel hungry during the initial part of the program. For best results we recommend you try and stick to it for these first three days. If you do feel like you need a little extra to keep you going you could try selecting some non- starchy vegetable options from the food list.
