okay so today was a great day i finally stayed on track after trying about 3 days a row.
Today at lunch i ate 3 bites of bread and chicken , 1 bite of bread and fish and 1 bite of herseys chocolate.
at dinner i ate 4 bites of patty and 1 bite of hershey's chocolate.
i drank countless amounts of water when i started to feel hungry and that helped alot. i enjoy eating a variety of bites at a time to me it feels like i ate plenty food. i really found it better to stay on track when i had my bite of hershey. it felt like i had a big dessert. i chewed my food until it was completely dissolved in my mouth. i did enjoy my food to day and i think it tasted quite taster than usual because it look my time and ate it. usually i would just eat and chew for like 3 seconds and swallow. i really hope i see a weightloss on day one i mean this diet seems to good to be true. i dont really crave anything because it try to get my cravings in my bites. its just the hunger for certain time during the day that i have to deal with but like i said i drink and drink till i have no more room Smile. i hope to keep up my good efforts on day 2 tomorrow Smile

i hope to see a nice number on the scale tomorrow.

Your weigh in tomorrow should be great and congrats on getting through day 1! the first few days are tough but you have the right idea, just keep putting it into practice and before you know it 3 days will be past, your hungerstat reset and you'll have more energy and your hunger under control. Its worth it I promise! I love you

Hey, I saw you posted on my thread and so I wanted to say thank you for that. Congrats on getting through day 1, I'm hoping I can pass that first mile marker myself since its usually a problem for me. I'm hoping that maybe we can keep each other accountable even though I'm starting a day after you.

Hey Annie,

I've talked about what I did to get myself on this diet not-quite 6 weeks ago. For me, at the beginning, I had to make it the most important thing in the world, in my life. That doesn't last forever. But it is crucial to get through those first 3 days, the first 5, the first week. Because once you do, the results are extraordinary, and not just the ones on the scale.

I can honestly say that I handle food differently now than I did 6 weeks ago. I couldn't eat a lot at one sitting if I tried. But even better, is that this diet did what nothing else has done. No diet, no self help books, support groups - whatever. It's trained me out of using food emotionally. Bingeing or overeating because something was bothering me, because I needed to not feel.

I can talk more about that, and I think I might in my journal. I was thinking of writing about that for my 8 week "anniversary."

Anyway... the point is, this diet is life altering, and I wanted to pass that along in case you needed some motivation. When I started this diet, I needed a ton of motivation. I read this forum constantly. I posted here A LOT. I read about the diet elsewhere, I read pros and cons. I used all kinds of things for motivation - online shopping for clothes that I would finally get to wear. I set mini goals for myself, and I believe in aiming high when you set them. Example, at my 8 week mark, I'm getting on a plane and heading back east to go to a family party. I used that as a marker for my first goal. Every time I got discouraged, I kept an OBSESSIVE focus on that date. Visualized myself getting off the plane in a certain small pair of jeans.

And you know what? It's working. That first week was horrendous. I felt insane. Now, this diet is a piece of cake. Seriously.

I am not going to hit the 40 pound goal by September 5, but in 5 1/2 weeks, I've lost 21 pounds, not for "cheating", but because my body is going to do what it wants to do. I can only control what I put in my mouth, and my efforts at the gym. I can't control the results (which I HATE!!!!!! I get frustrated with A LOT!!! Very Happy )

It's in you to do this. Dig deep. Keep focused on what you want, and do whatever you have to do to get there.

I hope this was helpful. Best of luck to you.

today was a much better day than yesterday. i was an emotional mess with my weight because i saw some pictures of me at an event that was taken about a few months back and i had no idea i looked so big, i mean i know that i was big but never thought i looked that way Sad. i sat there crying and comparing my pictures from when i was skinny to fat. it was a horrible felling, i felt so mad at myself for let my weight creep up so fast in about 3 yrs. today i woke up and felt much better than i last night. i promised my self that i would lose the weight i am fed up of being the fat sister, the fat friend, the fat sister in law the fat one at home, the fat one in my family. the only one to gain weight in my family. i am so tired of it all time to take my life back.

day one current weight 168 lbs

L 5 bites if fish sandwich
D 5 bites planning to have an other sandwich
i will stay on track to night Smile

You might want to try adjusting the times you eat so you eat later in the day and try going to bed earlier...this might help. We all struggle with night eating and I have admitted I am a full blown bulimic...this diet is really helping me control my eating and lose weight. You beat yourself up a lot and you need to stop that b/c it only makes the binging worse. If you screw up, own it and move on...NO more dwelling. You CAN DO THIS!!!! I do have one question...how tall are you????
