For the gentelman at Vancouver Island, I love the cottage cheese and the dishes made with it. I am 3 days into this eating plan. How long did it take to loose the 25 lbs.?

Hello all, Very wet on Vancouver Island today, I have not posted so here I am. I am loosing weight for my children and grandson. My Doctor says my Colestrol is through the roof and my tri gliceroids sp? are as well. This was 1 mth ago. I have been on this diet and lost 25 lbs so far. It’s a education and I still have a lot to learn, Mostly eating Chicken and Fish, lots of salad and more salad.
No Bread, as little sugar as possible, NO Juices. Lots more water.
No more Diet Coke 🙁 Is anyone eating cottage cheese?
Now I am starting to exercise and the combination with the lifestyle change will take off another 30 lbs I hope 🙂
Good luck out there.

The weather is beutifull in Texas. So for exercise today I took a brisk 40 minute walk around the park. I feel great!

Actually, most of the Trim Down Club recipes are gluten-free! 🙂

Alcohol is processed in the body like fat, and a sugary drink is also counted as a sweet (carb).
For a rusty nail, assuming 1 jigger each of scotch and Drambuie (total 3 fl oz), that would come to 2 carbs and 4-5 fat exchanges.
The chardonnay is much lower in carbs and alcohol, and so the average 4 fl oz glass would be counted as 2 fats.

I would like to know how alcohol fits into the program. I normally have 2 drinks a day. Sometimes chardoney and sometimes “rusty nail” (Scotch and drambui, which is a scotch lequer)

I just tried weight watchers and am verry discouraged because I actually gained weight. So I am trying to start this program with enthusiasm. Just sighned up about an hour ago and need to go shopping. I am also incorporating some exercise vidios, hoping it helps.

All I’ve started doing is walking in our neighborhood, doing reps on my torso track, & some floor exercises with squats. In combination with all these vegetables & fruits especially, I feel like there’s a lil less of me already! Yet too all this ice water I’m drinking is keeping me cleansed as well. It was motivational to see my skin improved & though my belly is still a problem, when I suck it in, I can see a small difference which is enough to tell me to keep it up!

Just returned to participating in Les Mills, Body Attack classes and feel proud of myself. I used to attend approx 10 years ago and did not realise how much I loved the classes until I returned :). I am now going to start eating right and shed that extra layer on my body that does not belong on me!
