k this was my first day, and i think i did a pretty good job.... (no snacking at all)

breakfast:
5 bites peanut butter and honey sandwich
1 cup water

lunch:
5 bites egg, ham sandwich

dinner:
2 bites of steamed cabbage
3 bites of ham inside pita
calcium and multivitamin
5 cups water

next steps:
should focus on drinking more water throughout the day
eat more fiber as i'm not eating that much fruits and veggies (wanna keep myself regular lol)
start exercising: 10min of yoga, 15 walking, some push ups (not really) and sit ups

Current Stats:
140 pounds
160cm
BMI of 24.8 (overweight)

Goals:
110 pounds
BMI of 19.5
i want to lose at least 3 pounds a week
deadline: May

here's my history (if anyone cares):

i was a skinny kid until i moved to the states, thats when i discovered cici pizza lol
first year i gained ~10 pounds
...and i guess i started gaining from there and never really stopped.

all through grade school and high school, i wasn't too big, but i really lacked in confidence in my appearance.
I also have MAJOR sugar cravings....which are hard to control (especially during THAT time of the month...if you know what i mean)

now that i'm in university, i've gained some more weight.

You had a great first day! As far as the fiber... usually drinking coffee on an empty stomach keeps me pretty "regular" lol If your not a coffee drink tea is also a diuretic I think. Welcome!

A_A Journal  Empty That's not your "real" 5 bite day...DO IT RIGHT! GO GO GO!

Post  renu712000 on Thu Feb 17, 2011 1:46 am

I am not gonna sugar coat it...That day was not your first day...As I mentioned in in your introduction...Keep it simple..read the rules and do it right!

Look at what you ate...that's more than the ten bites. You didn't skip breakfast. You can drink as much water as you want. There's no limit on the water.

START RIGHT! DO IT RIGHT, Adios Adipose!!

Do it right the first three days and at least a week. You are just rationalizing here that you started this diet but you didn't do it the right way! As my friend and leader of another group mentioned...it is simple..JUST DO THE DIET in ACCORDING to the guidelines set by Br. Lewis in his book.

Go read the book or if you haven't gotten the book yet...Get it!

Others here will support you and give you the pep talk and say "It's good" and "Good job"...I am gonna be blunt because I see how close you are to your goals compared to some of us. THIRTY pounds!! That can be gone in at least 1 month or even 2 months! Trust me....I've already close to losing over 30 lbs if I corrected myself correctly on my "Learning days". Instead I delayed the weight loss on those learning days but they were learning days for me to know where and why I weakened.

YOU CAN DO THIS...and YOU CAN DO IT THE WAY Dr. Lewis states in the book!

NOW START THE DIET the right way on the first day!! and then the next day and then the next day...and you are on your journey and goals of what you want!!

COME ON!! STOP DELAYING!! I want you to do this because I see you not far from your goals!! NOW DO IT!!!

[quote="adios_adipose] thanks for the correction. i will try to stick to it more.

Read my journal and you will follow my progress. I have loss over 30 lbs now..I could have loss closer to 40-50 lb but I had my learning days...and that's ok...They helped me in my mindset and in my journey to what I am looking to become..THIN!!

This weight loss does happen fast...My first week I loss almost 10-13 lbs...then I got too comfortable and had a few learning days...Added 3-4 lbs back...I got comfortable with that weight loss...BUT no...I wanted more..I want to be thin and thinner!!

I got right back on and kept going..Loss that added weight I gained back and loss it and loss a few more along that...

So along this process and journey...I have had learning days...Those learning days helped...They did delay me in my goal but they also helped me analyze why I was sabotaging my success...Up until now, I didn't realize I was doing that. NOW....I am aware and won't let those issues come between my desire and goal to be THIN!!

Yep...follow my journal and others...We all are losing the fat and are becoming thin!!

YOU CAN DO IT! now DO IT!!

Adios_Adipose,

Stay strong! You will get the hang of eating 5 bites twice a day. These are your learning days.

Take care,
