Hi, SandySandy. That’s wonderful to read!

 SandySandy 1 week ago

I do have to say some positive things that i’ve learned this past month.
1. when i eat all day long, i am definitely not hungry when faced with delicious food and can say no.
2. when i eat all day long, i do not crave sugar any more. that’s not to say i won’t enjoy it, but i don’t go looking for it.
3. i am starting – and my stomach is starting – to get used to eating 6 times a day and not feeling hungry at all.
4. even though i’m eating carbohydrates (and i think i’m being allowed way too much) i still feel that i am eating in a much healthier manner than before.
5. i think i am learning to be patient with weight loss and willing to wait for it to happen slowly because i’m not hungry or deprived and feel like a normal person.
5. life is good!

Hi, SandySandy. Backslides are part of the process, and not tragic. You don’t need to start all over again. Do see if you can do some portion control. You don’t need to be perfect, just try to do a little better than you have done in the past.

Just started week 5. I lost 1 kg. the first month, even though it still goes up and down 200-300 gms. My problem is the holiday this week. Even though i’ll be trying (bought low fat cheeses and cream) I’m still cooking and baking for my family and all that delicious food will be there. My question is how tragic will a downfall be and what will be its impact on my weight loss? Will I need to start all over again?

I’ve been sick for a week. It’s hard to eat right when you don’t feel like eating. I’m doing my best to eat right and sleep right. But it’s a struggle. Now that I’m starting to feel better I hope I can continue my motivation. And lose the weight and feel better.

Hi, JoetteBuchmann. Congratulations on your diligence and weight loss, though I am sorry to read you have been stressed out. If we can be of any help here, please let us know.

I am just having a terrible time coming back on this site as life just gets in the way. It’s been weeks since I checked in on here. I haven’t been following recipes either. I am losing weight, however, as I don’t eat when I’m stressed and that has been going on for the last 2 months now. I’ve dropped 10 pounds since starting this. I exercise 4 times a week and have been able to fit into clothes I had put away that are about 4 sizes smaller.

Hi, lbdandgirl, and welcome! Keep in mind that this is not a diet, but rather an upgraded way of eating. That means you can ease into at your pace, make small and barely perceptible changes if you need to (each time you’re in a challenging situation, just think “how can I make this even a little better?”), and they will add up and become second natural without making you feel deprived or bored.

I just joined but I always struggle with motivation to stick to something. I have done diets before and I always get bored or just tired of dieting. I then stop and then I consider it another failed attempt. I cannot seem to stay motivated enough to keep going to lose weight and in the long run gain it all back. I don’t think it is the diet that is the problem but the mindset but I am not sure even how to change that effectively.

I followed the meal plan the first week so well and then was bored of it the second week and did not. I am learning how to use the site and make changes. This week I have started my exercise program again and the scale shoed I was down 3lbs this week. That has me excited to start making more changes and continue to slowly add in a little cardio

Hi, Shipshape. Just ease into things – don’t try to do too much at once, and definitely don’t try to be perfect. If you make small steps, just doing a little better each time, the changes will add up and become second nature without suffering or sacrifice.
This means using the foods you have at home, then upgrading as you wish. Upgrading also doesn’t have to mean perfection – just do the best you can, and keep in mind that some of the recommendations on this site are just suggesting the optimum and not a “must.”
If you would like guidance with specific issues, please post here, and we would be happy to help however we can.

I am just starting the program and am trying not to become overwhelmed. I only have some of the various foods called for! I am really having trouble getting started.
